From: Jeanne Muse <JWMUSE -at- compuserve.com> Subject: Alice Whitney? Woods Date: Sun, 5 Oct 1997 19:21:18 -0400 Robert and all: Joshua Whitney's will may have been dated in 1713, but he didn't die until 1719. Joshua Whitney's gravestone indicates that he died August 7th, 1719. See an actual photograph of his grave on this web site from Allan Gilbertson (another fellow researcher): <a href="jw_gs.jpg">jw_gs.jpg</a> >>I conclude that Alice (-----) WOODS is very unlikely to be a daughter of Joshua WHITNEY, although Nathaniel's brother Thomas WOODS did marry Hannah WHITNEY, daughter of Joshua.<< Since we have Alice's death date as 10 Jan 1717/1718, she WAS alive at the time Joshua wrote his will AND when he actually died. Documents not yet found which might assist: The Will of Nathaniel Woods The Will of Alice (Whitney?) Woods The Will of Sarah (Brown) Woods The Will of Mary (Blanchard) Woods The Will of Jabez Brown (Sarah's father) if it is dated during the time Alice was married to Nathaniel Woods. The Will of John Blanchard (Mary's father) if it is dated during the time Alice was married to Nathaniel Woods. I say this is not closed until some other documentation is found. Anyone else have ideas?
