      Note:
      Do you think Hannah's son "Item I give and bequeath unto my son Rawleigh Travers and all residue of Bottles and one white counter pin." may have been Rawleigh Travers III who died Oct 1759 and the father of Rawleigh Travers III was Rawleigh Travers II who died before her marriage to Simon Pearson?
