(Cousin) Will18 October 1749John's cousin Samuel Gerrard wrote his will dated 18 October 1749 at Clongill, County Meath, naming his brothers, John Gerrard and Thomas Gerrard, sister, Dorothy Welsh, nephews, Thomas Gerrard and Gerrard Welsh, niece, Elizabeth Morris, who we believe to have been the daughter of Samuel's sister, Dorothy Welsh, grandnieces, Darcy Wentworth and Catherine Dempster, who Samuel identified as the daughters of Elizabeth Morris, his cousins, Mary Byrne, Robert Gerrard and John Gerrard, and his uncle Edward Gerrard, who was identified as the father of Samuel's cousin John. Unfortunately, the abstract we have of Samuel's will does not identify the father, or parents, of his cousins Mary Byrne and Robert Gerrard, nor does it mention the names of the husbands of Mary Byrne, Elizabeth Morris, Darcy Wentworth or Catherine Dempster. We would really like to see a more complete copy of Samuel's will.2,1,3,4,5

Even if Sarah was his first child, we estimate his birth to have been between 1715 and 1719.4,1

Historical Note*1787The town of Gerrardstown, Berkeley County, Virginia, was established as a town in 1787 by the Virginia House of Burgesses. The town was named for the Reverend John Gerrard, tie first pastor of Mill Creek Baptist Church which was organized by early settlers around 1743. Shortly after being ordained in 1751, Reverend Samuel Heaton was also assigned to the Mill Creek Baptist church for a short time, possibly to study under the Reverend John Gerrard. Some descendants of Samuel Heaton and his brothers intermarried with descendants of other families of this Baptist church as they began their move west toward Ohio around 1796.5

(Cousin) Will18 October 1749Mary's cousin Samuel Gerrard wrote his will dated 18 October 1749 at Clongill, County Meath, naming his brothers, John Gerrard and Thomas Gerrard, sister, Dorothy Welsh, nephews, Thomas Gerrard and Gerrard Welsh, niece, Elizabeth Morris, who we believe to have been the daughter of Samuel's sister, Dorothy Welsh, grandnieces, Darcy Wentworth and Catherine Dempster, who Samuel identified as the daughters of Elizabeth Morris, his cousins, Mary Byrne, Robert Gerrard and John Gerrard, and his uncle Edward Gerrard, who was identified as the father of Samuel's cousin John. Unfortunately, the abstract we have of Samuel's will does not identify the father, or parents, of his cousins Mary Byrne and Robert Gerrard, nor does it mention the names of the husbands of Mary Byrne, Elizabeth Morris, Darcy Wentworth or Catherine Dempster. We would really like to see a more complete copy of Samuel's will.2,1,3,4,5
