Whereas my daus Sarah Webb & Rachel Harrel both dec'd had at their marriage their full dowry it is my will that their husbands Fred D. Webb & Stephen Harrel have no more than Five Shillings.

Again this was copied from a typed book. Again someone said the actual will has Dred, not Fred Webb
End Peggy Shaffer quotes.
I don't remember where I saw that Dorcas's maiden name was Danney.
That Robert C Rankin there. He was born 1791, and was a brother of Nancy Agnes Rankin, mother of William Schoolfield, husband of Rhoda Webb (not Thomas's sister).
