About Martha Osborne (Grieg)

Thomas Osborne b 1641, Coxendale, Henrico, VA, d 1692, Henrico, VA. He md (1) Mary(?) Bailey, and (2) Martha Griegg.


-------------------- See the notes of her husband, John Branch.

Was she Martha Goode (as claimed in Compendium of Genealogy, Vol 2, page 39)? (A claim various sources say is incorrect)

OR, was she Martha Jones as many other genealogies claim (Branchanalia ??) (This claim is also denied with vigor.)

Or Martha Greig (Gregg)[Griegg] (Grigg) ??? )(This has been questioned because, as one questioning soul said, "That is claimed only because the Greggs owned land next to John; there is no proof.")

Martha Jones, who married Thomas Osborne and Thomas Edwards (and some claim John Branch) was probably the daughter of Thomas Jones.

Martha Griegg's father, it has been claimed, was Robert Grieg born about 1610, if she is the correct spouse of John Branch.

This has been up in the air for years. Does anyone have any proof to definitively eliminate any of these ladies? Or clearly establish one as the wife and mother of Priscilla and Obedience Branch?
