I'm afraid Priscilla Woodward wasn't born until 1736. It would have been a little quick for her to have been Edward's mother, since he was born between 1740-45. That's the problem. There were also three or four other Williams the right age to have possibly been Edward's father in the vicinity. It's possible the Edward born 1714 who died before 1754 could have been married before his marriage to Priscilla. She carries a lot of good ancestors, but I'm afraid we can't claim 'em. Elvin Farris, Doug Farris, Gayle Marian and a few others are still digging. We have stared at Carl's postings for quite some time trying to make them work, but no luck. I would be happy to send the "current" file if you will contact me directly so I can attach it. We would very much welcome any suggestions or information you might have. Is Carl still working on these folks, if so we need to draw him into the circle! Thanks very much for your post. By the way, there is a problem also with Henry Farris's age. He must have been born closer to 1680, the youngest (rather than oldest) of Ian Farris' kids. He was still doing business at age 80-85 otherwise as per records. I have recently received more details on Conrad's siblings which are in my file and I will be most happy to share. Hopefully you can help!
