John Liming Society: New activity post

Linda Carlson

You have a new post on your activity from Dallas Riedesel.

I came across something interesting in the will of Joseph Applegate, who is the father of Alice Applegate. Alice married Joseph Liming.
The will was dated 1759, March 1. Applegate, Joseph, of Windsor, Middlesex Co; will of . Wife Mary. Children – John Alice limming, William, Joseph, and Moses. Personal estate. Money left by son Richard in the hands of John Ely, who is the sole Executor. Witnesses – John Brown, Archbald Silver, and George Danser. Proved May 3, 1760.
Most researchers indicate she was born in 1745. If that date of birth is correct, than Alice would have been married to Joseph Liming by the time she was 14. Then we have Joseph Liming who most researched indicate he was born in 1745. I would find it very unlikely that both of these subjects were 14 or less at the time of their marriage.
