In Reply to: GREENLAND, Elizabeth m. CONEY, Nathanial by Karen Lee of 270

I have copies of the following publication on the surname Greenland/Coney. This is not my line but I happen to collect all Greenland information. The publication has postings by individuals requesting information or just publishing their research way back in the early 1900's. I have a few more on this line, though the copy is very hard to read. I'll post again with the others.

This appears to be the line you need:

From the Boston Transcript Nov. 5, 1919

#7728 . 6
"Coney, Morse. C. C. W., Ocotber 14, ?. Although I didnot do much work on the line of Nathaniel (3), son of Nathaniel (2) (John 1) Coney, the cooper of Boston, I picked up quite a little in handling the records in the exacting way required of me by one who contemplates publishing at some time his spoils. I believe I got wuite a view of the other members of the Coney family beside William (3), the one with whom we dealt. Nathanie (3)'s wife at the time had not been revealed save by the name Sarah, but you say she was a Morse and they were married in Boston. Inference is that he native plac eof residence with her parents was there. There was an eligible Sarah Morse not given to anyone in the Morse genealogy, daughter of Nathanie (1) Morse of Dedham, who became later a resident of Boston, was a goldsmith who married Sarah Drayer in 171? had a daughter Sarah, second so named, Feb 5, 1716. His estate was settled 1719. Perhaps some deed or legacy will reveal Sarah's fate. Nathaniel (3) Coney, born 17?5 died 1779, at Stoughton, and left ten children. Nathaniel (4) Morse, parent of Sarah Morse was son of Ezra (3) (John 2, Samuel 1) who have other alliances I would like cleared up.

Greenland, Coney. As the the Greenland pedigrees of Nathaniel Coney's first wife Elisabeth Greenland. I found much started i Wyman's Charlestown Genealogies which led from one family to another in the atractive way this valuable collection places the familes of Middlesex and Suffolk. Elisabeth was born May 28, 1679, I found by some record, and was a daughter of Daniel Greenland and Elizabeth Ballentine. Elisabeth Greenland married Nathaniel Coney October 11, 1699. Neither of Nathaniel Coney's wives seem to bring riches, as he was not so good a match as his eldest brother John Coney JR, the goldsmith, who got most of his father's estate, and who placed Nathaniel in an embarassing position in reard to the titles of a Dunstable property, held at one time by John Coney the father. Nathaniel seems tohave stayed i Boston for twenty years till after the death of his first wife and marriage with the second and then after a sojourn in Rehoboth hesecured an estate in Stoughton and died there after a third marriage with a widow Royall.

John Greenland, a carpenter in 1641, on Mystic side, wife Lydia, seems to leave by probate in 1691 to sons John and Daniel and daughter Abigail Erelan. Elisabeth Ballentine who married Daniel Greenland was named in her grandfather, John Greenland's will. Her father Daniel, died before his father in 1679. His wife was a daughter of William Ballentine and Hannah Hollard, married in 1652. Elisabeth was born March 8, 1669. Hannah Hollard was a daughter by his first wife of Angel Hollard of Boston. She married after Ballentine's death, William Long. She died in 1718, and was born in 1635, as she desposed in 1679, at forty four, that John Greenland said that fi her daughter, Hannah Ballentine married his son Daniel he woudl give them half his house. A good chain of relatives, and Syman might develope more in a search. Ababail Greenland Erelan is of special interest."
C. H. A. was the writer.

Finding the resource...Wyman's Charleston Genealogies would help sort this out as I got confused with all the same names...who's related to who.
