Jehiel Winchell ca. 1737
Jehiel Winchell is one of my problems. The first edition of the Winchell Genealogy (1869) says he probably had no family. By the 1917 edition, it was recognized that he did have a family but very little was known. His daughter, Mercy, wife of Caleb Holcomb, is mentioned in the Holcomb genealogy but not in the Winchell genealogies. At least not that I've seen. Jehiel's wife seems to be unknown by anyone. It seems that he was on the outs with the established Congregational Church. In 1765 he was accepted into the Episcopal Church, in which his daughter, Abigail, was baptized.
If anyone knows any more, I'd love to learn it.
