Re: Ga and Md Boswells
Thank you Howard.
Actually you have cleared up several things. I no longer think George Boswell is a son of Josias but a brother along with Elijah. The Eliza Boswell who witnessed the purchase of the slaves clearly is not a sister to Josias so could she be his wife? I am inclined to believe so.
Josias Boswell has 5 children in his 1822 will. They are Levi, Josias, William S., Sarah wife of Daniel Whitaker and Eliza wife of Joseph Gartrell. These last two are my ancestors. I am doing a DAR app. on Josias Boswell.
I wonder if one can assume from the 1805 lottery drawing with Josias getting two draws that his wife is still living?
Have you come across the will of George Boswell or Mary Ann Boswell in Md. I have seen the abstracted version of Mary Ann's but not one for George.
And I guess you find no connection of Boswell and Berry families in Md.
