My ggg grandparents were William Fones and Dorcas Sherman.
I would like to verify the parents of William Fones and his wife Dorcas Sherman.
William Fones was born 1764 Rhode Island possibly Nth Kingston. He married Dorcas Sherman about 1789 in Easton, New York and died Wales Center 1839.
I have narrowed the possibilities of his parents to: Samuel Fones and Hannah Briggs and/or
Daniel Fones and Mercy Remmington.
Can anyone please assist me in identifying who his parents were?
I have not been able to identify Dorcas Sherman's parents. One reference stated she was Irish - I have not been able to verify this information.
Many thanks for this opportunity and the time you have given in reading my email. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Kindest regards from the Land DownUnder
