Re: Will of John 1740 Vanhoy dtd 5 Oct 1794
I may have already asked you, but what is your source for Jemima MARSHALL's maiden name? I have heard from other researchers that her maiden name was HART. I haven't been able to find ANY documentation for either name.
I DID find mention in a baptismal record in Delaware in about 1755 for a Jemima MINSCHELL, but that is as close as I have come.There were not any Harts or Marshalls that had daughters of the right age (or name) in Kent County Delaware at the time of Jemima's supposed birth/marriage there that I could find (checked land and probate records until I was crosseyed!).
This is a long standing brick wall that I hope to someday get through!
