Archibald Routledge, named in the will, is baptized in 1694 and the son of Robert Routledge and Grizzel Foster. His wife Jane Nixon was the daughter of John Nixon and Ann Armstrong. George's other sister married Thomas Routledge. I didn't find that marriage yet.

Amazing how much you can see in these abstracts.

We ended up going to work on a talk for a group in May so I didn't accomplish much more. I did do a writeup for my husband for his Ottawa Genealogist journal on searching at the Albany New York State Archives.
