Enoch's mother-in-law...

Mrs Hodge wrote to me again after finding some more information regarding the political affiliation of the Hartt family:
Thank you for publishing the information of Enoch FitzHenry and Abigail (Hartt) FitzHenry & their family. I caught a mistake yesterday while adding more sources to the family record - ABIGAILS' mother, SUSANNA was the Tory or Royalist and "said to have given our troops much trouble."
"Our troops" being the American revolutionaries of which Enoch was a member ... it must have been interesting times in the Fitzhenry household during the American revolution!

Addition on 6 August 2010
Of course - the American War of Independence was fought between 1775-1783. Enoch and Abigail did not marry until 1787. Susannah must have mellowed towards her daughter's suitor by then.
