     Priscilla Downman There may be some confusion about who Priscilla Downman's first husband was.
     Downman Family [1909:139] says that Priscilla, dau. of William II and Million (Travers) Downman, m. Capt. George Heale. There is no reference to a 2nd marriage for Priscilla.
     Hill [1990:46] says that the Priscilla Downman who m2 Joseph Chinn (his 2nd wife) was the "widow" of William Heale.
