BELINDA m: David Purcell m:Richmond, VA

WILLIAM m: Isabell Kennedy m:1699 Richmond, Rappnock Co.VA
** I have NO PROOF of William to Joshua but the WILL of Joshua. Be careful there are a LOT of William's out there. I also have NO PROOF of Belinda to Joshua except by other researchers that have shared greatfully.


Note: Belinda died during or right after childbirth, son Francis Pursell (orphan) later in connection to settlement with Johusa on estate with no more claims on his estate. Francis received land as an inheritance. This happened before Joshua died in 1717?.

Ann Loyd was Joshua's mistress for 22 years, which would be around 1695. They had NO children. I figure she helped with child raising of William and Belinda. Per Joshuas WILL in 1715 Richmond co. VA.

Mention of a first husband for Anna Smith is Edward Harmon b: abt: 1656 North Hampton, VA  (LDS).
