Re: George Calvert b.ca1715 - dau. Sarah
My husband's relative is Lydia Calvert b. 1748 who married our Archibald Bigbeeb. 1734.I have been researching this veryinteresting family off and on for over a year.
Regarding Mary Gosling, daughter of John Gosling and Mary Rookard----I found her married to Obed Calvert on April 26, 1739 in Prince William Co., Va. He was the son of George and Constant Barton Calvert.She is listed as b. 4/26/ 1721 and died 4/25/1785 in Prince William Co., Va.Their children are listed as follows:Jesse b. 1740, Obed Jr-1743, Lydia- 1750, Margaret-1752, George-1759, and Constant-1756.Obed Sr.- married -#2Betsy Calvert-August 20, 1785, just a few months after Mary died.They had four children:
Samuel-1787, John 1790, Betsy-1791 and Rhodon-1791.
Obed's lineage: George, George, Wm, Leonard, George, Leonard, John, Wm., Sir Walter, Alan, Walter Calverley, Warren, William Scott Calverley. This information comes from Family Tree Maker CD's and other sources.
Now to get to John as Mary Gosling's possible husband.But first from my information on Eliz. Harrison, dau of Benjamin Harrison III and Elizabeth Burwell, m.John on Feb. 14, 1711 in StaffordCo., VA.A son, George was born on May 02, 1712m. Anne Crupper and another son , Jacob was born on Dec. 14, 1724 and m. Sarah Crupper, dau's of Richard Crupper and Mary Jefferson. Sister's marrying brothers was not uncommon as I found out in my early research. I am confused about the name Farthing as a wife of Crupper.
I show this John Calvert b. 11/23/1692 at St. Mary's CO, MD and died on July 16, 1731 at Pr Wm Co., VA.This Mary Gosling, also dau of John and Mary Rookard Gosling was born
Nov. 27, 1697 in Stafford Co., Va and died August 14, 1785 in Prince Wm Co., VA.At first I read the date married February 14, 1744--- but that can't be because John died 1731.I believe it is a typo and should be 1714--but have no proof.What totally confuses me is thatI show Mary married and having children with Obed until the year 1756.
Birth and death dates just don't make sence.
Out of the entire researchI found this is the biggest puzzle.I am in hopes that now that it is on paper before you , you will see why so many of us are not so sure about Mary and John.I am new at this -- I certainly will be watching forinformation on this puzzling situation.Would love to hear comments and any corrections .This family totally fascinates me.
