Child List and Dispersion
The following is based on Stillwell, 1903; Stillwell created a compilation of data from original (primary) sources, but does not indicate the specific source used for any given piece of information. The data he quotes may or may not be reliable. A case in point is the spouse of Benjamin Borden, who Stillwell lists as "Susannah". This Benjamin Borden was involved in the settlement of the Shennandoah Valley, and is known from numerous historical records for Virginia; his wife is commonly identified as "Zuriah Winter", not Susannah. It seems likely that Stillwell confused Susannah Page (?), second wife of Benjamin Borden son of Richard, with Zuriah, wife of his son Benjamin. Stillwell provides personal commentaries about some of the data, and inserts information that is obviously hearsay; (for example, the comment about Richard Borden marrying Mary Worthley below); Thus, at least some of the information presented in his work comes from non-primary sources, and may be inaccurate---and you can't necessarily tell which is which. Thus these data require extensive vetting if they are to be relied upon.
