  1. [S453] Martha Burke, Solomon Townsend of Rhode Island, In the case of Thomas Townsend's second marriage, the names Job and Christopher were introduced into the lineage. In the case of the 8 minor children of Mary (Unthank) Almy Townsend., three of them or their descendent married back into the Townsend lineage. Audrey Almy, b. 1669 and undoubted named for her Almy grandmother, Audrey (Barlow), married James Townsend 3 (John, John) Catherine Almy, b. 1674, md. Solomon Townsend 3 (John, John). Deborah Almy, b. 1671, md. John Hicks. Their dau. Mary Hicks md. William Stoddard of Rhode Island. Their dau. Sarah Stoddard md. Samuel Townsend4 (James, John, John). Pg. 97 of the MEMORIAL does not reveal any detail of Sarah Stoddard's ancestry. The statement made on p. 122 of the MEMORIAL in regard to Thomas Townsend's second marriage is also incorrect. Mary (Unthank) Almy was the widow of Col. Job. Almy; not the dau. of. Job. Audrey Almy was not Mary's sister but Audrey was Mary's daughter .
