There are many family tree’s that have Thomas Marvel Jr. being married to Susanna Parker. I have tried to find when this connection began. I have failed. The only proof of Thomas Marvel Jr.’s first marriage is to Susanna Rodney (Daughter of William Rodney and Mary Hill). Further proof is in the will of William Rodney in which he lists Susanna Marvel as an heir.
