?? John Cromwell; Winter, Oakley, Gardner
Posted by: Carol Shiels (ID *****0778) Date: September 22, 2009 at 13:23:32
  of 1612

am seeking the CORRECT pedigree of
Mercy Gardner (1673-1743).
She married Miles Oakley Sr (1671-1743)
(also seeking his pedigree}

Mercy is the daughter of Immigrant Henry Gardner & wife Elizabeth.

I have come across a margin notation in the book
"The Descendants of Leonard Headley of Elizabeth, NJ" which corrected/challenged a footnote indicating that the Elizabeth that married [Immigrant] Henry Gardner (1639-1710) was the daughter of John Winter AND step -daughter of John Cromwell, NOT the dtr of the latter.

Land records do show a John Winter in Westchester as early as 1686 and had a wife named Elizabeth.

While googling CROMWELL I found a snippet that indicates a John Cromwell had a wife Elizabeth, who went blind before she died in Westchester, NY. (no dates)

My theory is that it was Mrs Elizabeth Winter, the mother who married (2) John Cromwell making him the stepfather to her daughter Elizabeth Winter.

Does anyone have any details about these folks?
