I can't speak for Kim, but I sure do!! We have been trying to pin down any
contemporary document that would give us a real revelation of the name of
Zachariah's wife. It still does not clairfy who Abigail's parents were,
but it is a move in the right direction. While I am sure that Jemima was
not the source of this information the person must have been close to her.
We do, of course, have to wonder how accurate the information is when they
couldn't spell her name correctly. It is also interesting that this shows
Ash Co., NC. I am not sure we knew this before did we?
Get me a copy and I will put it on the Wells Family Research Association
website in the appropriate place.
