October Birthdays & Anniversaries

A perfect topic for this week . . . We have several birthdays this month in my husband's family.  A niece, Megan Smith Collier and her two children plus two more grand-nephews from another niece.  Here's the kicker . . . 3 of them share the same day of the month.

But we are to talk about my ancestors . . . 

The earliest ancestor to have a birthday in October is Eleanor De Bohun, daughter of Humphre de Bohun and Elizabeth Plantagent, and the wife of James Boteler.  She was born on the 17th of October 1304 and died the 7th of October 1363.  One of the records indicates that her marriage to James took place in October as well.  Her oldest, James Boteler, was also born in October at Kilkenny Castle on the 4th in 1331.  He died on the 18th of October 1382 at Knocktopher Castle.

Joseph Allein & Theodoshia Alleine were married on 4th Oct 1655 in Ditcheat, Somerset, England.  Joseph was born in 1633 in Devizes, Wiltshire, England to Toby Alleine.  Theodoshia was born in either 1616 or 1630 in Ditcheat, Somerset, England to Richard Alleine.  Their daughter, Isabella, married Rev. John Rutherford in the month of October.  Isabella was born in 1655 in Ditcheat, Somerset, England and died in 1740 in Ireland.  John Rutherford was born in 1653 in Morebattle, Roxburghshire, Scotland and died in County Down, Ireland.

Thornburg Mabbit was born on 28th Oct 1799 in Maryland.  Parents are unknown.  He died 9 March 1870 in Madison County, Indiana.  He married Susannah Smith 6th of June 1822 in Wayne County, Indiana.  I descend through their daughter, Elizabeth, who married Christopher Columbus Maynard.  I have conflicting information in regards to birth dates, etc.  I have the same dates for both Thornburg & Elizabeth.  One of them has to be wrong.

Moses Stanley and Ellen Lowe were married 29th of October 1822 in Patrick Co, Virginia.  Ellen was born 4th of May 1803 in Patrick Co, Virginia to Aaron Lowe & Sarah Frazier.  Moses was born 2 of May 1800 in Franklin Co, Virginia to William Stanley and Nancy Mullins.
