Message Board Post:
Two steps forward, one back. At the end of my previous post correcting the parentage of
the two Roberts (one md. Sadler, one md. Rogers) I link to another post that corrects the
father of Robert who md. Penelope Lee. However, in that link is an error that needs
The second half of the post that I linked to gives information about the will and estate
of William Daniel who d. 1746 (md. Ann Watts). I wrote that William and Ann
"did" have a son Robert, which was an incorrect interpretation of the will at
the time. In William's will, when he refers to "son Robert", it becomes
clear that he is talking about his son-in-law Robert, husband to Lucy. He substitutes
Robert in the full list of his children and leaves out Lucy. The only Robert who receives
any part of the estate is his son-in-law Robert, in right of his wife Lucy. There is no
land, court, or probate record I've found that supports attributing a son Robert to
William and Ann (Watts) Daniel, it seems to come only from the funky labels in the will.
Just fixing old errors.
