      I thought you might be interested in Mary Louise Donnelly conclusions about the mother of Ignatius and Richard Gardiner, the sons of Luke Gardiner from her new book, Gardiner Descendants Plus Hatton Family and Weire Family Histories, 2004. Most secondary sources show Ignatius born about 1711 and his mother as Anne Craycroft. However, in "Gardiner Descendants Plus Hatton Family and Weire Family History, Mary Louise Donnelly, 2004, Page 35, the author states:
      " Ignatius Gardiner was born about 1699 in Prince George's County, Mayland, the son of Luke Gardiner and Anne Pile. On 2/20/1720 Ignatius Gardiner and his brother Richard of Prince George's County, received 537 acres of "Father's Request" in Baltimore County on the north side of Deer Creek from Benjamin Wheeler (Patent IL#A:376). Benjamin Wheeler had obtained 770 acres of this tract from their father just a few months prior to their father Luke Gardine's death [transferred 4/14/1719]. Since the tract was termed "Father's Request," this researcher believes the land was placed in the hands of Benjamin Wheeler until Ignatius Gardiner became of age. This would place Ignatius Gardiner's birth as 1699, and his mother as the first wife [Anne Pile] of Luke Gardiner."
