Ok, Rilla's obit says that she married a William T Hancock. So either the obit
contains wrong information or not. Her name according to sources was Rilla Nevada
Townsend, so she could not have been a Hancock. I am descended from the Hancock's on
my grandmother's side and Morris' on my dad's side. If someone has a birth
record or marriage record from Wayne County that would put the issue to rest. I live
within 5 hours of Wayne County, so I might have to visit the Museum before the snow flies
to try and get some documents.
