To: deborahmacvey--RE: relationship to Marmaduke Estlack/Eastlack. According to my desc chart, we have to go back a number of generations to link up. Your Hepzibah Estlack [Thachara], b 1657 was a sister to my Joseph, b 1674,Bermuda.
You go from Hep. to Sarah Thackara [Estlack] [w/o John] to Dan'l to Samuel to his son, Marmaduke, b 1773. My Joseph goes to FrancisII to Sam'l Sr. to Amos Turner Estlack Sr. to my Geo, b 1807 in NJ. As you can see, we're related, but distantly.
I don't have a Sarah as one of Marm's ch. I do have a Ruth, married to an unk McVey & an Ann marr to a Noah McVey. Also a John E. who marr Jerusha McVey. Quite an intermarr fam! I do have a Sarah as dau to John & Jerusha, marr to a Cole. These data on Marmaduke are from "The Eastlack Family" book by John Wm. Eastlack. Could you give me more info on Sarah and Edmund McVey?. Would be glad to share my nine-page desc chart on the Estlack/Eastlack fam. You'll find Marmaduke's stats listed twice as cousins John Eastlack Sr. & Sarah Thackara marr each other! Ah, well.....
Oh, I never could find a reason for George,[Joseph's father] to go to OH & to IA as I never found other fam members traveling with him, [and therefore no threads to follow!] so know how you feel! they seem to be a bunch of loners!
