Family Milestones: November 5th

My paternal 6th-great grandaunt, Avis MAXSON, married Samuel Hubbard BURDICK on this date in 1731 in Westerly, Rhode Island. Avis was born December 27, 1712 in Westerly, the daughter of John and Judith (CLARKE) MAXSON, and the younger sister of my ancestors, Bethia and Elizabeth MAXSON. Samuel was born 1712 in Westerly, Rhode Island. I have not researched to see how he connects to the other HUBBARD families in Westerly.

My maternal 4th-great grandaunt, Betsy Jane MILLS, daughter of Henry and Hannah (WOODWARD) MILLS, married Henry BRAY on this date in 1841 in Morgan County, Indiana. Betsy was the older sister of my Hannah MILLS. Betsy was born 1819-1mo-25dy and her family were members of the Springfield Monthly Meeting in Indiana. I have not followed this family any further at this point.

My maternal 6th-great granduncle, Mordecai MENDENHALL, married Hannah MARSHALL on this date in 1771 in Orange County, North Carolina. Mordecai born 1747-8mo-20dy, the son of Mordecai and Charity (BEESON) MENDENHALL, members of the New Garden Monthly Meeting in Guilford County, North Carolina. Mordecai was the older brother of my Charity MENDENHALL. Hannah's death was recorded on 1802-2mo-15dy at Lost Creek Monthly Meeting, Jefferson County, Tennessee.

My paternal 7th-great grandmother, Barbara GRUNDBACHER, was born on this date in 1672 in Sumiswald, Canton Bern, Switzerland. Barbara was the daughter of Michael and Anna (BRAND) GRUNDBACHER. Barbara married circa 1695 to Ulrich SCHURCH, and the family emigrated to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I do not have an exact date of death for Barbara.

Travis - I have 2 husbands for your Charity MENDENHALL: Aaron MILLS (m. abt 1773) and Anthony CHAMNESS (m. aft 1794). I presume you descend from Aaron MILLS (?) Was there a 3rd husband I am not aware of? Thanks!
