            Back to Elizabeth's Will

            The information presented here is based on the contributions
and
            efforts of many people.We hope it is a help to our relatives
and, in
            the interest of accuracy, welcome additions and corrections.

            Children named in Elizabeth’s Will
            Three sons were named and there appears to be three daughters
who
            married Slade, Lane and Robbins, though none were named
directly and
            can only be inferred from the names of the grandchildren.
            Sons: Samuel and James named directly; Joshua's children
named as
            grandchildren.
              James Hodgkins - our direct ancestor's will proved 1828 in
Brown
              Co, Ohio named wife Hannah and nine children named below.
              Samuel Hodgkins - served in the rev war from Harford Co,
Maryland;
              married twice with two known children: Elizabeth Burgett
(see
              below) from first marriage, wife's name unknown, and Hannah

              Hodgkins, from second marriage to Lydia Wright, was not
born until
              1832.
              Joshua Hodgkins - three children named in the will: son
James,
              daughter Nancy and step-daughter Margary, although Joshua
himself
              was not named as an heir and perhaps already deceased;
there is a
              Joshua Hodkins enumerated in the 1790 census in Harford Co,
MD and
              a Joshua Hodshins enumerated in Fawn Twp, York Co, PA, a
township
              which borders Harford county. Is either of these
Elizabeth's son?
              Anyone have further information on Joshua?
            Daughters: Elizabeth's daughters named indirectly and may
have
            predeceased her.
              Hannah Hodgkins - married Samuel Lane (from bible record of

              Valentine Burgett and Mary Lane), see children below
              Susannah Hodgkins - married Obadiah Robbins, son of Vincent

              Robbins and Ann Kitchen. We have marriage date of July 1776
in New
              Jersey. See Washburn, Robbins and other families for more
on the
              Robbins family.
              Mary Hodgkins - married Ezekiel Slade Jr., son of Ezekiel
Slade
              (1730-1802) and Ann Whitaker (see Wally Garchow's website
and
              Christos Christou Jr.'s website for more on the Slade
family).
              Ezekiel Slade Jr. and Mary Hodgkins were married 28 Jan
1783 in
              Baltimore Co, MD; Source: Maryland Marriages 1634-1777,
Robert
              Barnes.
              [Note: Is Ezekiel Slade Jr. above the same person whose
will was
              proved in Harrison Co, KY in 1807? That will names wife
Sarah
              Slade. Was Ezekiel Slade Jr. married more than once?]
            Grandchildren named in Elizabeth’s Will

grandchildren.

            From:
           "Sherry Mazzetti" <sherrymazzetti1@prodigy.net>

I noted that the online census of 1840 Brown County, OH shows Abraham
Burget, Volentine Burgett, John, Henry, and George Mefford, Valentine
McDonald aka McDaniel, Andrew, James, and John Kirkpatrick, Aaron and
Volentine Burgett (another one) fairly close together.  A group, as I have
noted but not written out completely, appears on page 377.  Have not checked
the Sellers List site to see if all of this has been extracted.
In any case, have a look at the Hodgkins material.  It may be helpful.
