Thanks, John. I appreciate the info, but there still seems to be a problem with the date of Samuels birth. If he was born to Walley and Jemima, it would have had to be after May 20, 1752, because in the Will of Henry Snoad, (above date) the son of John Snoad who was the brother of Mary Snoad, Walleys first wife, he leaves "To wife of Walley, Aunt Chauncey, is bequeathed 40s for ring". In John Snoads Will, dated June 21, 1743, he mentions Walley Chauncy as his brother in law. In Samuel Boutwells Will, me mentions his daughter, Jemima Floyd, who married Griffin Floyd, after Walleys death. He also mentions the sons of his daughter Jemima, Samuel and Isaac Chauncy. There was also Nancy (Ann)? Chauncy, but unsure at this time who her mother was. It seems clear from the forgoing, that Samuel and Isaac were(?) the sons of Walley and Jemima Boutwell...but, the dates of birth are still unclear. Walley married Mary Snoad prior to 1738, when John Snoad sold some land to Walley, and mentioned his sister Mary, as being the wife of Walley. There are certainly some problems with these birth dates, because in Walleys Will, he names Isaac as an executor. the Will was written December 28, 1763, and for Isaac to have been an executor, he would have had to be of age, there for, making his birth about 1742, which conflicts with John and Henry Snoads Wills. Unless Jemimah adopts Isaac, and Samuel Boutwell merely mentions Samuel and Isaac as sons of his daughter, I don't have a clue. It also appears that Samuel married Ann Beaner/Baynor. If you should have anything that could clear this up, I would be much appreciative..

I also appreciate the input, John..
