  • The children's dates do not match up with birth / death dates of mothers.
  • Ann Musgrove is variously listed with a mother of Ann Adair, Nancy Ann Crosby, and Rebecca Beeks / Beaks (three of Edward Gordon Musgrove's wives). Her death date is conflated with a confirmed death date for Polly Bob. However, Absolom Bobo could not have married Mary in 1802 and had children with Ann in 1808 & 1810. Therefore we need to find a death date for Ann Musgrove if possible.
