I also descend from William, Jacob and John Towne as you do, but then we diverge. I descend from Israel, brother of your Samuel.

There is a Towne Family Association which you can join for a nominal annual fee. They publish an excellent newsletter and have historians who track information on the various children of William Towne and Joanna Blessing.

There is also a book "Descendants of William Towne" available. I purchased my copy from Barnes and Noble I think. There is also a PBS-aired video "Three Sovereigns for Sarah" which covers the witch trials that involved three of William and Joanna's daughters. I think I also purchased that from Barnes and Noble.

In other words this is a very well-researched family with a wealth of material available. The Towne Family Association also discusses common errors that I have seen published in less well documented genealogies.
