James Rockwell's chilcren
Hello, thank you for maintaining the memorial for James Rockwell 1753-1835). If my research is correct, he is one of my 6th great-grandfathers. I'm hoping that you'll be able to clarify something for me. Listed on his memorial and in several public family trees I've seen is a daughter, Anna, born in 1774. However, the marriage date that I've found for him and Hannah is 1783. Do you know if Anna was his child by a previous wife? Perhaps I have their marriage year incorrect? Any light you can shine on this is greatly appreciated.
