Person talk:John Howland (3)

Daughter Elizabeth [4 January 2012]

There is a conflict on this page. Two gedcom uploads added a duplicate page for John Howland and wife Elizabeth Tilley showing 1 daughter Elizabeth Bosworth. However, the transcription of the wills of John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley Howland both refer to daughter Elizabeth as Elizabeth Dickenson. Daughter Hannah married a Bosworth according to the wills. Unless someone has supporting evidence that daughter Elizabeth married a Bosworth I recommend removing this Elizabeth as a daughter of this couple. --Beth 09:27, 4 January 2012 (EST)

Elisabeth "Bosworth" is actually the mother of the Jonathan3 Bosworth who married Hannah Howland. She clearly didn't belong and one can only surmise she ended up by some form of confusion/error/lack of information. If her death record had been cited, which gives her age at death, which implies a birth date, it would have been clear she was of the same age as John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley and obviously not one of the their children. I removed her, following Jacobus' Lorenzo Ackley/Emma Bosworth book. --Jrich 10:22, 4 January 2012 (EST)
