  1. 1.  Keziah Hall was born in 1705 in Greenland, Rockingham, New Hampshire; died in 1808; was buried in Hope Cemetery, Kennebunk, York, Maine.

    Notes:

    Called "Keziah Wentworth Hall" in many online databases, but we have seen no evidence that she had any middle name at all.

    The Chesleys did marry into the Wentworths -- Philip1's grandson James Chesley married the immigrant William1 Wentworth's granddaughter Tamsen Wentworth, a year before Keziah's birth. And because the Wentworths were a family on the rise by 1705, it's possible that Keziah was given Wentworth as a middle name in order to underscore the connection. But generally the smart bet is to assume that eighteenth-century middle names were invented by bad genealogists in later years.

    Notes:

    The generally well-done Ancestry of Pam & Jeff Martin site asserts that Israel Kimball was married twice, first to Elizabeth "Betsey" Evans and secondly to Betsy Durrell. But Harold Clarke Durrell's "Philip Durrell and His Descendants" (The New England Historical and Genealogical Register 133:40, 1979) indicates that Betsy Durrell (1782-1869) married a different Israel Kimball, the one who was a son of Isaac3 (Richard2, Caleb1) and Sarah Stone. Which leads us to believe that our Israel Kimball was married only once, and that his one and only wife was Betsey, said to have died in Kennebunk 11 Mar 1843, a daughter of Benjamin Evans and Elizabeth Ricker.

    Elizabeth married Israel Kimball on 21 Mar 1796 in Wells, York, Maine. Israel (son of Israel Kimball and Eleanor Dennett) was born about 1773; died on 24 Oct 1823 in Kennebunk, York, Maine. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
