Sandra, thank you for your very helpful and prompt response. Will you entertain one more question with a couple more facts? My situation is that the list of children in Hinshaw's Encyclopedia omits two children at the top of the family's record. One of those children is, however, clearly identified as a child in a later entry below the list regarding the child's out of unity marriage. This disowned child was later reinstated. Was her omission from the list of children simply an oversight? The other child omitted from the list is never mentioned. He may have been a child from a previous marriage, perhaps to a woman who was not a Quaker and who died. So would it make sense for that child not to have been listed if he was being reared by his deceased mother's non-Quaker's family?
