My grandfather, Everett Sanford Williston, Sr., who passed away in 2005 at the age of 99 had given me a family tree which I have just started trying to verify. One vague portion of this tree includes the marriage and children of John Williston and Hannah Sawyer. The tree I have shows that John was born in 1702 and Hannah in 1710. They had the following children: Seabury 1731, Lucretia 1733 (with a not saying married Amos Taben 1764), Judah 1733 (with a note that he married someone named Cory), and then Ichabode Willingstone 1742-1838) who married Elizabeth (b. 1749- d. 1815) Sanford in 1772. I'm sure that the Amos Taben on my list is highly likely to be your Amon Taber because I have seen that name in other postings. I have see Lucretia also posted as Judeth Lucretia with a birth date of 1732. I don't see how Ichabod could have been the son of Judith or Judah, since any records of them I find is that they were born in 1732/1733; far too young to have had a child in 1742.
I have been able to verify that Ichabod lived in Tiverton in the 1790 Rhode Island census. I am descended fron their son Pardon (b. 1788 - d. 1876) who married Sarah Crandall Tripp in 1815. I have very clear records before Ichabod and after him, but nothing that actually verifies the parent of Ichabode Willingstone. There is a note that John Williston b. 1702 (the most likely father), changed the spelling of the name from Willingstone to Williston.
