Hello, I would just like to thank you for getting the marriage of Nathaniel Spear and Hannah Holman correct. I'm a descendant of the Hannah Holman that almost everybody wrongly puts with Nathaniel Spear. There was a Hannah Holman in Milton, it's just that some of the particulars were wrong. The Hannah born in 1668 to Thomas and Abigail Holman didn't marry Nathaniel Spear. She married instead Benjamin Beale in 1700. Four years later, Thomas Holman dies. In his will, he mentions his daughter Hannah Beale. His will ties Thomas to Hannah Holman Beale. This is one of the biggest failures of internet genealogy. You see it everywhere. People have merged the birthdate of "my" Hannah Holman with that of the Hannah Holman that married Nathaniel Spear. And instead of her actual death date being 1727, almost everyone has 1751 as her actual death. "My" Hannah bore 5 children to Benjamin Beale at the exact same time that Hannah Holman bore Nathaniel Spear children. I apologize for the rant, but it drives me nuts to see this information widely disseminated and completely wrong! I just wanted to thank you for your honest and correct research.
