In Response To: Re: Redman/Warrick of Loudoun Co., VA ()
George W. Redman married Mary E.______(per the death record of their son, George W. Redman. All of their children are not known to me. I know that they at least had: (1) George W. Redman, Jr., who married Amanda Contee; (2) Lucien Redman, who married Martha Fox; (3) and John Redman, who was called a son of George Redman when he was apprenticed in the 1830s.
Thanks so much for the clue that "Cassie" may have come from the name "Cassiah"/"Kezziah". I had never thought of that, and it makes a lot of sense.
Also thanks for the name of Andrew Redman's wife, Mary Stephens. I knew that Andrew was the father of John Redman, and John Redman named his mother, Mary, in his will, but I did not know her maiden name. I checked on Ancestry.com and found several entries about Andrew "Redmond" and Mary Stephens, but the information is very confusing. All agree that Mary was the daughter of Robert Stephens of Newton, Gloucester Co., NJ. Most agree that they were married on 20 Nov 1737, but there are three different locations listed for the marriage: Loudoun County, Philadelphia (Christ Church), and Haddonfield Friends Meeting (NJ)! Could you possibly tell me how it is known that Andrew Redman/Redmond married Mary Stephens? I want to make sure that Mary, daughter of Robert Stephens, really was the correct individual. Some things do not add up very well, such as the marriage dates for Robert, father of Mary Stephens. He may have had a very early unknown first wife, but his two known marriages were on 13 Oct 1739 to Ann Dent and in 1753 to Mary (Estaugh) Kaighn. Some people are stating that Ann Dent was the mother of Mary Stephens, who married Andrew Redmond, but that would not be possible if Mary's marriage to Andrew was two years before her mother's marriage to Robert Stephens! Any help on this would be appreciated. I mainly need to know what proof or supporting evidence there is to show that Mary Stephens was really Andrew Redmond's wife. Since the exact marriage date is known, perhaps there is a marriage record, but few seem to agree on where the marriage took place.
