I have just learned that my husband descends from the Margaret Leeman who married Adford Jaquith. Most of the data I have found on the internet does not give her parents' names.
Is there any verifiable source that would prove that Margaret was the daughter of Samuel Leeman and Mary Bryant? Margaret Leeman Jaquith's death record [gravestone?] in Dunstable, Massachusetts says she was 62 when she died in 1776, which is where most sites I have seen probably get a birth date of c1714. I know it is not uncommon to have a date that varies as much as three or four years from the actuality.
From a website dealing with settlers of Hollis NH, I read that Abraham Leeman, son of Samuel and Mary Leeman, married as his second wife Olive Davis Jaquith, the widow of Adford Jaquith. Olive was apparently Adford Jaquith's second wife, whom he married the same year his first wife, Margaret Leeman, died. The various interconnections between these people make it a pretty good clue that this is the right track. I would just like to locate some more data to substantiate it. Any help out there? Is there a marriage record for Margaret Leeman and Adford Jaquith [various spellings]?
