Newman's information is in error. Ann was not born about 1658. She was born before 1649 when her father transported her into Maryland. See the explanation on my page:http://home.netcom.com/~fzsaund/besson.html
Nicholas Gassaway had only one wife, that being Ann Besson. That he had a first marriage was based on the flawed thinking that Ann had to have been born after 1658.
