Mona: Thank you for your rapid reply! This William Willey (b. 19 Mar 1734 d.18 Mar 1823) is our man! Do you know when Mary Whitehouse, his wife, died? Was it in Wakefield?
I knew Turner's birthdate, you don't know by any chance his death date in Wolfeboro, NH ? Turner married Esther Drew in 1795. They had 8 children (David -b. 1798, Elizabeth - b.1800, Rebecca -b.1802, Turner W.- 1806, Mary -1809, John -1812, Esther - 1815, Stephen -1817)
I'm also very interested in William's father, Samuel Willey (b. 25 Feb 1703 in Wakefield or Brookfield). Do you know the name of his wife or when he died? Thank you very much.
I'm from Boston but have been in New Zealand all this year, will be back in Boston in November.
