I have read a Genealogy Newsletter for the Belfield family. One of the editions included writing by Les Bundy Lipschutz. From this I found that the Belfield family has been involved in American History for almost 400 years. I noticed info for Joshua Tefft-related to Belfield descendants because Lydian Tefft, who married Richard Jr. and Obadiah Belfield's older brother Isiah, was Joshua Tefft's great, great, grand-daughter. It is also said that Sarah Greene married Joahua Tefft,(John Greene being a family ancestor and I have researched this and it is true)but I cannot document Sarah Greene being an "illegitimate daughter of John Greene and an Indian woman. Joshua Tefft is famous for being the only Englishman that was hung, drawn and quartered in the colonies. Is their any proof to this lineage? I am going to do another post of lineage to Francis Cooke and his son John Cooke. Cindy
