My main interest is John REED/READ who m. Ann SPANN. He will prove to be either an ancestor or an uncle. My only hope of finding him is through SPANN.
Anne SPANN,was born 1652 m. John READ/REED/REEDS was the do Richard who d. 1688 Northumberland Co., Virginia and Hannah GRIBBLE(?) The name Hannah is most often a nickname for "Ann".
Richard's 2nd? wife was Graciana (maybe WATTS)d. aft. 1671, but I have their children as having all been born before Ann SPANN (above) and Graciana still alive after the birth of Ann. Graciana m. 2) 1671 Thomas BRERETON
PLEASE help get me onto the right track??????
