In Reply to: John Caton d. 1769 Kent Co., DE by Pamela Smith of 1730

Thank you, Pamela!

As you can see, a researcher has stated one Janet (Jeanette?)Caton was born 1718 in St. Margaret's Westminster Parish, MD. She married Moses Chapline 1717 in Queen Anne's Parish St. George Co MD.

The researcher has her parents as William Caton and Elizabeth. I have requested the source of his information.

We have one Jennett/Jenat Chaplin as the daughter of Colonial Judge John Caton and wife, Agnes...also listed as the sister of John Caton.

Given Name: John

Birth:
Death: 1743

Also, "Colonial Families of Delaware, Vol. I" by F. Edward Wright, pg. 28 - William Betts, son of Robert married to Elizabeth Newell, dau of John Newell. William died by 29 Dec 1740 when his estate was administered by Elizabeth Betts.
