In Reply to: Amon Taber and Judah Lucretia Williston of Tiverton, RI by Karen Harris of 251

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.
