About Ann Hussey (Inskeep)

From Roots web ancestry- In the chapter regarding James (1751-1784) I include the following paragraph.

The ancestors of Theodate Hussey, Content's mother, arrived on the ship William and Francis that brought many of the first settlers to the Puritan Colony of Boston in 1630. Theodate's parents were John Jr. and Ann (Innskeep) Hussey. Theodate married (1) Joseph Seal about 1731 by a "Priest" but made satisfaction and returned to the Monthly Meeting at Center, New Castle County, Delaware. Joseph Seal and Theodate moved soon after they married to York County, Pennsylvania where Joseph died about 1736 without issue. Theodate was living at the home of her sister Anna (Hussey) Day and her husband John when she married (2) widower Robert Hodgin(s) on 29 May 1740. This was the first Quaker wedding in what is now Newberry Township, York County. Content was born in 1754 in York County, Pennsylvania, where her family was living when they received a certificate in 1759 to move to Orange (now Randolph) County, North Carolina in company with Theodate's brother Christopher Hussey. Robert Hodgin(s) and Christopher became partners on 600 acres near the Holly Springs meeting, just south of Ranseur, North Carolina. Content's half-brother John Hodgin(s) also came to North Carolina and married Mary4 Vernon, James4 Vernon's sister.

The above information was gathered from a book titled Descendants of John Hussey of Dorking, Surrey, England'. The family line of Hussey's is as follows: John, Christopher, John Sr., John Jr., Theodate (Hussey) Hodgin and Content Hodgin. Theodate Hussey and Robert Hodgin had five children: Robert Jr., Rebecca, Joseph, Content and Anne.

Theodate's parents John Jr. and Ann (Innskeep) Hussey had eight children: Rebecca, Mary, Nathan, Ann, Theodate, John, Content and Christopher. It is this Christopher Hussey that married Ann Garretson that is identified as the parents of Content Hussey that married James Vernon (1751-1784) found in The name Content started in the Hussey family line with a child of Capt. John Hussey Sr. and continued for the next few generation is each child's family line.
