Pam, I don't disagree with any of the facts you mentioned, not even that Nathan's wife was probably named Temperance. But the Birdsall Family Assoc. has disproved it was Temperance Baldwin and have documented who she did marry. Go to the Birdsall family forum and look for a message from Barbara Kollhoff who is the editor of the assocdiation's Bulletin. She can give you the documentation. I don't have my materials with me. We live in AZ now and are in WI for the summer. E-mail to this address is being forwarded to me. Thanks for your interest.
