RE: TWINING, William & Ann[a]
Not only are the names confusing, but the contributors are both named Becky. From what i see, your two memorials for William and Ann(a) are unfortunately later than the others. I have saved all bios for the benefit of whoever gets the final memorials. Sorry for the confusion. Thank you.

RE: TWINING, William & Ann[a]
An edit changing to Anna just came thru, so one more deletion might be coming soon. When you have the only Ann(a), you can change it when you are satisfied what the answer is. When this all settles down I will send you all the pages with the bios that the many contributors had. They do conflict and you may need to just use the most logical. I just got so confused when there were 9 memorials.

RE: TWINING, William & Ann[a]
Well we are now down to 5 memorials from the original 9 memorials. For one of the Williams, I have advised Edit that the contributor does not answer for a deletion. If that works, I will do the same for the extra Ann. Then there will be 3, with you having 2. The 3rd will not hurt anything as there are no connections to get confused over if it is not deleted.

Only one of the contributors used the name Anna. Gerald is heavy into his family research and is helpful. I will give you the contact.

Joseph Adams @Baldwin Cem
You have down a memorial for Joseph Adams 124656570.
Having him linked to parents Samuel Adams and Mary Meeker Adams. I am the holder of memorial for Mary Meeker Adams- I just wanted to let you know, due to recent email by another Find A Grave member, I went back and did some more research. It appears that Mary Meeker 1656-1718 IS NOT the wife of Samuel Adams 1653-1727. According to New England Marriages Prior to 1700 Samuel Adams died in 1694 married Mary Meeker. Samuel Adams 1653-1728 married Mary (
maiden name unknown).
Just letting you know-you may want to remove the link showing Mary Meeker as mother of Joseph.
