I've always been interested in Winchester, I spent most of my life about 15 miles from where he lived in rural SC, and have gone down to the cemetery, where in now unmarked graves, he has spouses buried. Went to North Oxford, Ma - and saw the exterior of the church where he ordained Hosea Ballou (with the "written Jehovah"!

That's great. I'd love to visit Welsh Neck.

I did get very confused when I first read the Baptist Church minutes.

May 4 1777 Sarah Winchester is baptized
July 3 1777 Sarah Winchester dies

BUT

March 15 1778 Sarah Winchester is baptized
April 5 1778 Sarah Winchester is listed as a member
23 Jan 1779 Sarah Winchester dies.

...until it twigged that these were not the same Sarah Winchester. The first was Saah Peck of Reheboth, MS, while the second was Sarah Luke of South Carolina.

I'd love to spen a few months researching Winchester in the USA. But, alas, it ain't gonna happen.
