I have that Elizabeth Mattingly, daughter of Thomas Mattingly and Ruth Cole
m. first, Benedict Joseph Spalding about 1746 and second, Philip Ford,
9/30/1775 at St. Francis Xavier RCC. Not much in the way of documentation.

As we discussed the other day, it's always been a question as to whether
John Ford (d. 1765) m. Elizabeth Riley or Frances Riley. I still believe it
was Elizabeth and their daughter Frances m. first, Henry Wimsatt and second,
William Williams. Sure would like to get the question resolved.

I have 15-16 children for John Ford (d. 1765). Below is what I have (as
David Cummins would say, "it's not bloody guaranteed"). And yes, you'll see
a few changes here.

Subject: [MDSTMARY] John Ford & Frances Raley

Linda Reno,

I'm trying to sort out some errors I have.

The John FORD who married Frances Raley, I also have married to Elizebeth
Mattingly daughter of Thomas MATTINGLY and Ruth COLE.

But what children are under each wife?

I think I have far to many children.

is there any John FORD who married an Elizabeth RILEY?


also. I have Frances FORD as a daughter of John FORD and Frances Raley, but
then I found this note which is probably old and wrong.



Jerry,

*Robert Mattingly m. first, Jane Cole* (she wasn't Catherine Jane Cole),
dau.

of Robert Cole and Ann Greenwell *and second, Frances Ford (dau. of Peter
Ford).* Robert Mattingly was the son of James Mattingly (son of Thomas
Mattingly, Jr. and Mary Curtis).

Will of Robert Cole, SMC, 3/3/1719-20;4/1720. Son: John, dwelling plantation
and personalty. Son: Robert, "Cole's Purchase" at head of Choptank Bay and
personalty. Daughter: Mary, "Pearewales" and personalty.

Wife: Elizabeth, personalty, and with children, residue of estate equally.

Execs.: Wife, Eliza and brother, Edward. Wit: George Jenkins, Cuthbert
Sewall, Vitus Herbert. (Maryland Calendar of Wills).

Admin. accts. of Robert Cole 4/20/1720 and 6/18/1720; appraisers were
Nicholas Miles and James Gough; next of kin was Edward Cole and Robert Ford,
Jr., Exec., Elizabeth Cole (Skinner).

Admin. accts. of Robert Cole, 6/6/1724. Execs: James Thompson and his wife,
Elizabeth Thompson.

Linda Reno (I did not record date this was posted)

I'm confused on Ford and Raley/ Riley families.
