Family Milestones: November 7th

My maternal 5th-great granduncle, Joseph JACOBS, married Elizabeth BUTT on this date in 1816. Joseph was born in Fleming County, Kentucky, the son of William and Sibell (LITTELL) JACOBS, and the younger brother of my James Thomas JACOBS. Joseph died on July 3, 1866 in Effingham County, Illinois.

My paternal 7th-great grandmother, Elizabeth MAXSON, was born on this date in 1695 in Westerly, Rhode Island. Elizabeth was the daughter of John and Judith (CLARKE) MAXSON. She married August 25, 1715 in Westerly, Rhode Island to John DAVIS, son of William and Elizabeth (BRISLEY) DAVIS. John DAVIS was a minister of the Seventh Day Baptist Church, and the family moved to Monmouth County, New Jersey, where Elizabeth died on April 18, 1751.
