George Booth1

Father*______ Booth1
Will*4 January 1776The source's abstract of the will of George Booth was not dated. It appeared as the next entry following that for his brother Richard, and might even have been a continuation of his brother's will written on 4 January 1776. The first heir listed in the line of succession to inherit George's lands of Drumshinny, County Cavan, Ireland, died in early February 1776 so it is possible he and his brother discussed and wrote their wills together since both named a son of a different sister as his primary heir.

George's will named his nephew Richard Bell, son of his sister Frances and Robert Bell as first in line to his lands of Drumshinny. Named as second in the line of succession to the lands was his nephew Andrew Bell, son of his sister Mary and Andrew Bell of Bellgrove.1

Father*John Borden1 b. 22 Feb 1606/7

Birth*24 June 1635John Borden's birth record with a date of 24 June 1635 was recorded in Dedham, Massachusetts Bay Colony, as "John, the son of John Balden and Joana his wife".
