Family of Elisha (Capt) WALES and Lydia THAYER

Elisha (Capt) WALES b. 1753 May 142852 at Braintree, MA2852.
Lydia THAYER b. 1754 Oct 52852 at Braintree, MA2852.

Married2852 1775 Nov 252852 at Braintree, MA2852. Hillman800 has Lydia Thayer "mar. (int) 25 Nov 1775, Capt. Elisha Wales," referencing Bates2852, p 879. On examination, Bates has p 878, "[261] Marriages enter'd.," which carries over to p 879: Nov. "25th. Elisha Wales & Lydia Thayer both of this Town." Hillman's reference to an intention and to "Capt." Elisha Wales comes, perhaps, from Sprague841 who uses the same phrase, or Bates2852, p 851, where "The children of Capt'n. Elisha Wales and Lydia his wife" are listed.

The marriage record2852 for Elisha Wales and Lydia Thayer has "both of This Town (Braintree)." The only Elisha Wales of an appropriate age born in Braintree was born2852 May 14, 1753, to Joseph and Abigal(sic) Wales.
