Can People Even Read?

I am so thrilled to learn that my ancestors were saving their embryos in 18th century Maryland. Apparently Walter Newman died in 1729. His wife died in 1716. And here they are having a son in 1760!

Imagine that. William Newman (the first child shown) did exist, and was born ca. 1760. He only married Cassandra Tippet once. The image shown here indicates they were married twice.

Don't believe everything you read online. Check and doublecheck. This file had an Ancestry.com world tree as it's "source." And I use that word loosely.
