Father of John Totten


The Japser Totten born 1675-80, son of Richard Totten in Hempstead NY married Patience (b. 1682), and Patience, according to Jasper's will, was his widow.  He does not to appear to have had two wives.
Jasper's brother Benjamin had a son name John that married Louvina Chruchill.  If this John Totten is indeed the John Totten who married Druscilla's father, then obviously, Jasper Totten is not his father.  I have often believed that there was a generation missing, and this seems to be it.  Regardless, I do believe that John Totten b. 1744 is descended in some way from Edward Totten of Hempstead, I'm just not clear on which son he descended from. ~Michelle
