Am Rev. War Colonel George Wrigglesworth
Hi, I'm looking for help - if anyone has any ideas.
First, my primary aim is to find out details of the "Mary" who married Richard Mayberry, Jr who is in the Mayberry Cemetery in Casco Maine http://www.pivot.net/~eureka/casco.mayberry.htmlhttp://www.pivot.net/~eureka/casco.mayberry.html
Richard Mayberry Jr, as I have learned, served in the American Revolution under his father "Captain Richard Mayberry, Sr" who served under a Colonel Wrigglesworth at Valley Forge, PA during the American Revolution.
Captain Mayberry and his men were a bunch of guys from Windham , Maine. The list is at this link: http://www.rootsweb.com/~neresour/OLLibrary/Journals/NMGR/Vol05/nmgrp003.htmlhttp://www.rootsweb.com/~neresour/OLLibrary/Journals/NMGR/Vol05/nmgrp003.html
I am a descendent of a 19th century published genealogist/historian named Frank Pride Dingley and have been provided with details which include that (my ancestor) Zadoc Sylvester (1792-1878) first married Mary (Polly) Jordan, second married Rebecca Tukey (1806-1878)
Rebecca Tukey's parents, as I am told, were John Tukey and Martha Mayberry. Martha Mayberry is the daughter of Richard Mayberry, Jr. and Mary ???.
I am told that Mary is a Mary Jordan, daughter of Jeremiah Jordan (1753-1840)
I have come across information that Colonel Jeremiah Jordan married a Mary Wrigglesworth, daughter (or relative) of Col. George Wrigglesworth.
Most recently, I have come across a marriage of a Richard Wrigglesworth to an Ann Smith in Toronto Canada. The two witnesses on the Marriage license are George Wrigglesworth and Jeremiah Jordan.
It's my understanding that these two served together as colonels in the American Revolution many years prior as the wedding took place March 1, 1837
(link to marriage license witnessing - http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~maryc/old4.htmhttp://homepages.rootsweb.com/~maryc/old4.htm )
I'm wondering if these two names are a coincidence and that there were two other people by the names of Jeremiah Jordan and George Wrigglesworth who were friends at a relatives wedding in Toronto. Or are they in fact the Colonels who served in the war and the one's I'm right now trying to track down.
If anyone has any information in regard to the Mayberry-Wrigglesworth-Jordan connection, I'd be greatful to hear from you.
