Please add a little bio to Richard to the effect that he and Elizabeth also had a daughter Martha who married Andrew Sherwood. This is noted in his will.
Andrew and Martha were my 5 great grandparents.
As an aside it is curious how many females of this family died in 1778 including my Martha. Makes me wonder if there was a fire?
