Hi William,

I have your Solomon Coles and Mary Townsend in my database but I don't have any confirmed parents of either of them. Please post information as to who their parents were. Interestingly, their son, Daniel, married Dinah Boone (my 1C7R), daughter of George Boone and Deborah Howell ("the" Daniel Boone's Uncle and Aunt).

Now in regards to your original question, the answer is yes John Townsend and his wife Elizabeth Coles did live in the Oyster Bay, Long Island community. I have their children listed as:
Thomas (m. Sarah Coles)
John (m. Sarah Harcourt, although some geneologists have him marrying Phebe Williams)
Elizabeth (m. Gideon Wright)
James (m. Elizabeth Wright 1st, m. Jane Reddocke 2nd, m. Delivered Pratt 3rd)
George (m. Mary Hawxhurst)
Daniel (m. Susannah Furman)
Rose (m. John Wicks, m. Samuel Hayden)

So, you can see that I don't have Mary as connected to this family. So, please help me out with the parentage of either Solomon Coles and/or Mary Townsend. I'd also be interested in your line of descent so that I can add it to my database.
