Yes. This is my line, I descend from Jonathan. Elizabeth received the DUNGAN estate, granted 9/4/1741 by Jonathan Bavington (thought to be her brother, an attorney). Elizabeth m2.5/31/1742 William REED/REEDER/ROAD at Faggs Manor Presbyterian Ch, Chester Co, PA. Citations were brought 3/16/1743 against William and Elizabeth REED/ROAD by Thomas Dungan and Samuel Wells for guardianship of DUNGAN children (Samuel was child of Mercy WELLS DUNGAN and Jonathan Jr. and Jacob were children of Elizabeth BAVINGTON DUNGAN.) The two grandfathers were successful in having Elizabeth and the new husband declared unfit. The couple migrated to NC. Samuel located to NJ as an adult, but both Jonathan and Jacob migrated to SC. About the time they migrated, an Elizabeth REEDER appears in the census in SC, later named Elizabeth RHODES, widow, who is the right age. I can't find further records on her or William REED/REEDER/RHODES. A descendent of Samuel told me oral legend has it that Elizabeth and William were suspected in the death of Jonathan and secretly kept in touch with the children until Thomas Sr. and Samuel Well's deaths, when they openly migrated with the sons and lived near them until their deaths. No proof, however.
