CONFLICT in spouses: It is posible that there was a Valentine Peyton Jr., or that researchers have confused other families with the same name.

Valentine Peyton married Frances Harrison. Many are convinced that Frances Linton, daughter of Moses Linton and Margaret Barton, was his wife, and the mother of my ancestress Eleanor Peyton. I wonder if the evidence used, that Moses Linton mentions grandson Henry Peyton in his will, could refer to another Henry Peyton than the son of Valentine Peyton. [Later info: I have been informed that there may have been an adoption in the family that caused the name confusion.]
