Generation No. 2

      @5.  Rev.

Notes for Rev. Joseph Gerrish:
Rev. Gerrish was the minister at Wenham, Essex County Massachusetts from January 1674 until his death.

Marriage Notes for Joseph Gerrish and Anna Waldron:
There is a possibility that Joseph and Anna were married in Salem in 1672.  The record of the event, if it is indeed a record of the event, is apparently undecipherable except for Joseph Gerrish's name and the year of the marriage.  However, the date and location of the event make sense.

Generation No. 3

      @12.  Elizabeth3 Gerrish (Joseph2, William1) was born 18 December 1673 in Wenham, Essex County Massachusetts40, and died 22 March 1746/47 in Medford, Middlesex County Massachusetts41.  She married (1) Rev. Joseph Green 16 March 1698/99 in Wenham, Essex County Massachusetts42, son of Jonathan Green and Ruth Michelson.  He was born 24 October 1674 in Cambridge, Middlesex County Massachusetts43, and died 26 November 1715 in Salem, Essex County Massachusetts44.  She married (2) Rev.

Notes for Elizabeth Gerrish:
The marriage record gives the marriage date of 16 March 1708-09, while the Parish record indicates the year as 1699.  Given the dates of birth of her children with Joseph Green, the Parish record appears to be correct.
