Re: Rebecca (Rebekah) Martin Married Robert Bell

In Reply to: Re: Rebecca (Rebekah) Martin Married Robert Bell by Karol Hughes of 767

Oh dear, that posting was years ago, but anyway, the record I saw indicated Edward Martin did not have a daughter Rebecca with wife Mary Jane Aiken. I also noted that his first wife, Margaret Olive McClure, may have had a daughter named Rebecca. Because Margaret McClure had a sister named Rebecca, and Edward Martin's mother was named Rebecca, it would be no surprise that they named a daughter Rebecca.
It is interesting that Edward's will names her Rebecca Bell, in view of the earlier inquiry about whether the wife of some Bell was or was not the daughter of Edward Martin. That is an issue about which I have no information.
I hope further investigations at the Archives will clarify all matters to your satisfaction. Thank you for your interest.
