I made a copy of a microfilm found at the LDS Genealogy Library in SLC found on William Cleaves.
The print on the original document is very small, so I will do the best I can. I can not find a date on this book, but I do believe it was a record book from a county or church. The info I am giving you comes from pages 74 and 75.
The top of the page says:
The family of William and Margaret (Corey) Cleaves (This is on the left-hand side of the page)
(This is on the right-hand side of the page)William Cleaves and Margaret Corey were married May 18, 1683 married by Moses (can't read last name).
On the left-hand side of the page lists the names of their children.
b July 22, 1686 William
b March 31 1688 Hannah d April 19 1688
b July 21, 1689 Ebenezer
b October 23, 1693 Benjamin
On the right-hand side of the page after the list on left is a notation that says: Margaret the mother was a daughter of
Giles Corey of Salem Village, who was (can't read the rest very well, maybe one of you can decipher what little bit I can give you) forefied to death in the _________ in the witch delgsion(?) in 1692.
Then it goes on to list other Cleaves family that I believe are related to William and Margaret, but I am not sure how.
John and Mercy Cleaves
William and Martha Cleaves
William and Rebecca Cleaves
William and Mary Cleaves
Benjamin and Rebecca Cleaves
Benjamin and Anna Cleaves
Ebenezer and Sarah Cleaves
Joshua and Elizabeth Cleaves
Another Joshua and Elizabeth Cleaves
Andrew and Susanna Cleaves
William P and Elizabeth Cleaves
If anybody would like a copy of these two pages, let me know. I will do the best I can in making copies or trying to enlarge the information. Give me your snailmail addresses and I can see what I can do.
