    Hi Warren,

    I have followed up on the Martha Bourne Townsend genealogy, and now have
    the following:

    Solomon Townsend (1748, RI - 1818, RI) m. Martha Bourne (1748, MA-1827, RI,
    dau.of Shearjashub Bourne and Ruth Bosworth)
    Their daughter Martha Townsend (1779/1783, RI - 1819, RI) marr. Ebenezer
    Smith on Sept 4, 1800 (1778, RI-1854)
    Their daughter Louisa Smith (1800, RI-1856, IL) marr. Joseph (Vial) Viall
    on Apr. 26, 1818

    Ebenezer Smith married a second wife, Martha Bourne, dau. of Shearjashub
    Bourne and Ruth (Wardwell?)

    I also found that Shearjashub Bourne (Dec. 4, 1751-Nov. 24, 1821) married
    1- Ruth Wardwell, 2-Rachel Waldron (not Ruth Waldron and Rachel
    Wardwell) This is from New England Families, Genealogical and Memorial,
    Vol. 2, page 683 on

    Most of this is now on Rootsweb and Ancestry, along with all the
    documentation - and EVERYTHING is documented. You might want to change
    your genealogy page for Martha apparently Townsend, as it is now outdated.

    I found your Martha Bourne, Solomon Townsend information on RootsWeb. You
    say that Robert Townsend cites further sources for Solomon Jr's Vital
    Record - does that mean they're in his book or do you have access to them?
    Do you know if Solomon was a preacher in Barrington? If so, he's the one
    I'm looking for as Martha Bourne's husband. I have:

    Martha Bourne Townsend was mother of
    Martha Townsend (b. abt. 1783, who married Ebenezer Smith). Their child
    was Louisa Smith (b. Aug 23, 1800).

    Sincerely, Jean Philbrick
    (Townsend, Smith, Vial, Wells, Philbrick)
