I am researching James Selby and possibly a brother Major Selby, whose wife was Harriet Mezick. I came across this will abstract, Somerset Maryland:
James Winright, will dated 20 October 1794, will proved 9 March 1795. Mentions wife Elener, exec., daughters Nancy and Jane. Daughter-in-law Ann, wife of James Winright, deceased. Grandson Levi, son of Henry and Rebecca Selby (deceased). Daughter Sally Mezick, wife of George. Grandson Benjamin Mezick, son of George Mezick. Sons-in-law Henry Selby and George Mezick. Witnesses: John Jones, son of Benjamin; John R. Mezick, Hugh Porter.
At least one researcher gives my James Selby the parents Henry and Rebecca Selby, but I've never found any proof or even any indication of that anywhere else. Anyone with information about this Winright family?
