Re: William Wesley Phinney of Parrsboro Roads

Dave:

Did you also notice that Elisha's mother, Martha Phinney died at age 73 on 23 September 1868, same day as the Marcy you mentioned? Martha's death is written, if you look closely, as "32 September 1868" but would seem more likely to be the 23rd - same as her 11yo granddaughter?

Eric:

Thanks. I can buy into that theory ­ for now, and have changed it that way
in my file.

There was a ³Marcy² Phinney in the family but she died 23 Sep 1868 at age 11
years and would have been too young.
