Ginny, Do you know the source for Henry having been born in 1724? I
suppose he's quite a bit older than the others. If Rachel was born ca. 1708,
having been about sixteen years old when she had Henry, she could have still
had children into the mid 1750s. That would work.
I think there is proof that Mathias Harman was born in 1736. I suppose it
was assumed that his wife, Lydia Skaggs, was born in a similar timeframe,
but she has to be much younger than he. - Jeremy
