      This solves a pepetuating error.

      Henry Sewell did marry Elizabeth Fowke, just not the one (1668-1704).

      Elizabeth was the daughter of Gerard Fowke Jr. and Sarah Burditt. she was born abt 1695 (that was after birth dates were recorded in court records in Charles Co.) it also matches my "guys are 21 and girls 16 rule"
