But, first, here is another shot of William Carpenter's fieldstone. As you can see there are other "rocks" around it. I have no idea why there are pink plastic flowers in this general area. Perhaps they are there to guide others to this spot.
Gene Zubrinsky has been all over the Internet helping others understand the mistakes in Amos Carpenter's genealogy. I discovered he has a great Web site (with a PDF for offsite reading) to help all of us "Carpenters" with understanding our lines. Even if you are not a Carpenter, it is worth a look as it is a great example of shared, researched material.
Carpenter's Encyclopedia of Carpenters
Eugene Cole Zubrinsky, "William1 Carpenter of Newtown, Shalbourne, Wiltshire (Bevis, 1638)" (2008; rev. 16 Oct. 2010), 3, online at http://members.cox.net/jrcrin001/Wm1_Shalbourne.pdf.
My line (as worked out by Gene):
William abt 1605-1658
Molly 1751- 1796, wife of Japheth BICKNELL
and so forth down to me.
I have very few lines where there are this many men of the same surname.
