Answer from Jane F. Burgess:
 
I suggest that James TANNEHILL may have been a son-in-law of Thomas HARRIS. For additional information, see my Thomas HARRIS article, MGSB, vol. 41, no. 2 (Spring 2000), pp. 151-223. The will of Thomas HARRIS (d. 1728) did not name all of his living children as indicated in the PG Co., MD Court memorandum on 25 June 1729 naming the following living children of the deceased Thomas HARRIS: Thomas HARRIS, Rachel HARRIS, "Jamima" (Jemima) HARRIS, Rebecca HARRIS, Ruth HARRIS, Benjamin HARRIS, Sarah HARRIS, and Samuel HARRIS (p. 155). After the death of Rachel(l) HARRIS (d.c. 1756-7), widow of Thomas HARRIS (d. 1728), her executors submitted to the Court an account for her estate listing a payment entry to James TANNEHILL for his share of the estate of Thomas HARRIS (d. 1728) (p. 159). Perhaps, James TANNEHILL was the widower of a daughter of Thomas HARRIS (d. 1728). As possibilities, daughters Rachel HARRIS (b. 1704) and Jemima HARRIS (b. 1709) were alive in 1729 but were likely deceased by 1756 when Rachel(l) HARRIS, widow of Thomas HARRIS (d. 1728), made her Fred. Co., MD will which did not name daughters Jemima or Rachel or any issue for them. 
 
In response -- From his records, Mr. Baldwin noted that his ancestor James TANNEHILL had three granddaughters named Jemima and one granddaughter named Rachel.

40-20. SPENCE, JOURDAINE/JORDAN. From Mary T. Arthur, 10233 Gainsborough Rd., Potomac, MD 20854-4039 A-110.
 
Editor, This letter is to make a correction to my reply to Query #40-20 of Barbara Martin's.  I made a typing error in the death date of Adam SPENCE I.  He was born in 1662 and died testate in Somerset Co., MD in 1733 not 1633.  Thank you for making this correction.
 
Her original response was as follows, dated Sept. 1, 2001.
 
Dear Barbara, I have noted your two queries re: the SPENCE family and I am descended from Adam SPENCE, who came to Worcester County, MD from Scotland in 1685.  The Presbyterian Minister, Francis McKemie, married Adam SPENCE and Madame JOURDAINE/(JORDAN?), a French lady, in 1697.  They had four children — three daughters and a son, Adam II.  Adam Sr. was in the Import business. He was born in 1662 and died Testate in 1633 [1733] in Somerset Co., MD.  He did not name a wife and I have never been able to find out her name.  Could it be your Dorcas SPENCE?  Do you have a list of her children?  The above marriage date of 1697 would be the year after her second husband, John JORDAN, died.
 
TANNEHILL, WILKINS. The following is a letter from Dolly Ziegler responding to Fleur Medbery's inquiry in a previous issue of the Bulletin regarding a book by Harry Wright Newman not held at the Maryland Historical Society Library.  
 
Hello, Fleur. I noticed your query in the Maryland Gen. Soc. Bulletin.  I asked Robert Barnes where Harry Wright Newman's genealogical papers are; he said Charles County Community College has them. Perhaps the TANNEHILL study you seek will be there.
 
I suppose you have already searched "Filing Case A" at the Maryland Historical Society. Both TANNEHILL and TANEYHILL folders were slightly out of order. They include a 17-page typescript, "One line of the TANNEHILL family of Prince Georges County, Maryland and Monongalia County, West Va." by John D. Baldwin III, dated 1992.
 
At the splendid LDS Family History Library website, <www.familysearch.org>, I found this: Genealogical data, TANNEHILL and WILKINS families. Compiled by Mrs. Ray C. Avery. Typescript, 1 vol., various pagings. [Microfilm]
 
Since "various pagings" could mean -- who can tell? -- you might want to check this out. As you probably know, you can order microfilm sent to any Family History Center for about $3.50 per reel for 30 days (to be read at the FHC.)
 
Hope this helps. Cheers, Dolly Ziegler in Baltimore <dsz@BCPL.net>
