ok so I will get this all on...but getting a bit lost...

So Nancy Willetts may be the sister of Benjamin b 1800?
so Esther would be the neice/

and who is that last one Jimmy confused the Issac and Nancy evans?

and who is Benjamin a brother to Esther?

footnote - just thinking if that Josiah Downing and nancy Willetts marry in 1804 Clent. then cant be a sister for benjamin Willetts b 1800 got to be an aunt?....couldnt be his mother could it?... and maybe 2nd marriage to Josiah.

footnote archiving this for the time being...so for the moment Completed with thanks
