      Can anyone tell me the source for Thomas Dyson's (Jr.) wife being Sarah SWANN. I just went through all my documents and notes and still can't find anything saying she was definitely a SWANN! Early Families of Southern Maryland, Vol. 6 by Elise Greenup Jordan does show documentation that she was "Sarah".

      I've seen for Thomas Sr. that Anne Walford was his wife, but where is the documentation?--discussion please?? Early Families of Southern Maryland, Vol. 6 by Elise Greenup Jordan does show that "Ann" was his wife, but no mention of Walford.

      I looked in The Dyson Family of Charles County, Maryland by Robert Barnes which shows Anne (surname unknown) for Thomas Sr. but does not give a name for Thomas Jr.'s wife.

      I have posted these questions on the Dyson list, but got zero response. As it is, I list Thomas Dyson Sr.'s wife as "Ann/Anne" and Jr.'s wife as "Sarah" with no last names.
