      In Reply to: Re: MacCubbin family <1700 by Janet Spangler

      Do you have any ideas about who Moses MacCubbin married?
      I suspect he married a daughter of Cornelius Howard Jr. and Mary Roper. But, I have not found a document which clearly says so; only records which suggest so. For example,
      1. On June 22, 1717, a probate record concerning the estate of Cornelius Howard, Jr. includes the statement, "We ye subscribers as relations to ye deceased approve of this appraising: Moses Makubbin, Charles Howard." [Charles was Cornelius Howard, Jr.'s oldest son.]
      2. On April 6, 1721, Moses MacCubbin and Cornelius Howard III were present during the probate of the will of Cornelius Howard, Jr.'s widow, Mary Hammond. [She had married John Hammond after Cornelius Howard, Jr.'s death.]
      3. On February 28, 1729, Thomas Howard [son of Cornelius Howard, Jr.] and Moses MacCubbin signed a probate record concerning the estate of Cornelius Howard III as next of kin--like in item 1 above.
      4. On January 29, 1742, a probate record concerning the estate of Moses MacCubbin states that Moses MacCubbin had been the guardian of Benjamin Howard, son of Charles Howard, son of Cornelius Howard, Jr. This Benjamin Howard later married Moses MacCubbin's daughter Eleanor.
