I have been doing some research about this ancestor of mine, and I found out he was the only person to be drawn and quartered on American soil for treason. He was married, to a Sarah, but she died after childbirth. It was rumored that he was married to an Native American women. I do not know if it would even be possible to figure out a name of that person, or if they had any children together, before his execution. Anything helps, thanks.
