    • 1726; Will of Joana Markham, widow of New York; 3 October 1726, proved 15 October 1726; Will lists a number of bequests, including - To Elizabeth, daughter of Henry Wileman.

      [pam garrett's comment] Joana Markham was the widow of William Markham, governor of Pennsylvania. Sometime after her husband's death in 1704 she removed to New York City. Elizabeth Wileman was a young girl when Joana Markham wrote her Will. Was Joana Markham Godmother to Elizabeth Wileman? I have long contemplated a relationship between the families of William Markham, governor of Pennsylvania, and my own Markham family (John Markham who married Catherine Mathews). This connection between Markham and Wileman may be coincidence, but it is curious. In this database, see complete Will of Joanna Markham, under her name - Joanna [Unknown].

      1745; Will of Henry Wileman; original Will written 1723, codicil attached 18 Oct 1743, proved 20 May 1745; naming wife Rachel, step-son John Bayard, daughter Elizabeth Wileman; ". . now resident at Wilemanton, on the Paltz River, in Ulster County."
      See complete Will under Henry Wileman, in this database.

      1753; Vincent Mathews of Orange County on behalf of himself and Elizabeth his wife, only daughter of Rachael Wilemann of Ulster County, widow of Henry Wileman, deceased. John Bayard aged about 49 years is the eldest son now living of the said Rachael Wileman whom she had issue by her first husband Peter Bayard, deceased. Daughter, Elizabeth, wife of Vincent Matthews is only issue now living by husband Henry Wileman.

      1760; Will of Rachel Wileman; written 14 June 1746; proved 26 May 1760; In the name of God, Amen. I, Rachel Wileman, of Ulster County, widow. All just debts and funeral charges to be paid.
