(Witness) Note Note(s): "The grandmother of Mrs Plough's father was a first cousin to the father of our country, Gen. George Washington." - suspect as this type of claim was common, but might as well check it out. Hard to do since we don't know the grandmother's name. But if it's Margaret Howell, then it doesn't bear up.2
