William MASTERS/Tryphenia NORTH/MD
William Masters left his wife, Margaret in 1753 and lived in common law with Tryphenia North. She had three children and I descend through her son, John North Masters. Was John, Williams son, was Tryphenia married before or was North her maiden name? The children eventually took the Masters name but I have never been able to find any documented evidence of their birth. (John North Masters married Priscilla Bayne (Bean) in Prince George's County.) The children accepted William as their father, but in all the documents I have read he always refers to them as Tryphenia's children. Any help greatly appreciated.
