I am looking for info on the William Downing that married Letitia. He was born around 1728 or so. He had a son named Joseph born 1748 died 1833. Joseph married Jemina (Woodward) Downing and had Francis Woodward Downing 1764-1855. Francis married Elizabeth (Foster) Downing and had Benjamin Foster Downing 1816-1889. Benjamin married Malinda (Baldwin) Downing and had Isaac Calhoun Downing 1865-1944 and the list goes on. If you have ANY information on any of these people I would love to have it. I would love to have dates for William and Letitia and find names that go beyond them. Thank you.

you may want to search for a connection to
Terrence Downing/Dunning born 1672-75 Prince
George County MD died 1712 Prince George Co.
MD. married to Elizabeth Middleton.

i have a feeling that most of the Downing
lines of MD are going to link up with him

Malinda Downing

I have two thoughts on this family.

My records (which have not been verified) show the last child of Malinda and Ben Downing to be Melinda, (born 1848). My records may be incomplete but if not that means a 17 year gap between children. Could it be possible that your ancestor Isaac is actually the child of little Melinda, who would have been 17 at the time?

The other thought is that Malinda Baldwin Downing had a half sister married to an Isaac Calohan. She left Malinda a little money in her will. Could it be possible that your ancestory was named after him, and his middle name is "Calohan" rather than "Calhoun"?

I am curious about the proof that:

a. the father of Joseph Downing who married Jemima Woodward is William Downing

b. Timothy Downing [1742-1799] was the son of the same William or the brother of Joseph.

I have never seen this before. If true it would answer some questions. It might explain the later Huff-Downing marriages.

I'm afraid I have no proof. This is information I obtained from other's posted family trees and I can only take it on faith at this time.
