  • Notes 
    • In looking at the Bristol County, Massachusetts, probate records, Mary Gatchel's will, which is
      dated July 4, 1734, refers to Thomas Gatchel's daughters, Priscilla, Mary and Sarah, as her
      daughters-in-law. This implies that Mary was not their mother. This would mean Thomas Gatchel's
      first wife Sarah was the mother to Thomas Gatchel's three daughters. Additionally, Mary Gatchel's will refers to John Gatchel's children as her grandchildren, and this would imply that Mary
      Gatchel is John's mother.

      Additionally, Bristol County probate records indicate that John Gatchel's estate was probated a little
      more than five months after John's will was written, so it's safe to say that he passed away during the intervening time.

      John's will also charges his wife to take care of "my father & mother". This would indicate that his parents Thomas and Mary Gatchel, were probably up in age when the will was written on October 11, 1729.
