William Wharton

Marrying the Medcalfs

Not too much is known about this William Wharton although he carries a very popular name in the family. What is known is that on October 15, 1767, he married his sister-in-law Rachel Medcalf's younger sister Susannah and together they had at least one son William. She was five years older than William and given the times she was a bit on the old side when she got married at 33.  For me it congers up visions of an arranged marriage.
