Molly [Herbert]

Molly and Abby are probably orphans who have been taken in by Betsey and Peter Herbert's family by the time of the Birchtown Muster. They have no last name or age listed in this record and they are not Betsey's children as she has two very young infants, Nancy and Betty. A 16 year old Thomas O'Neal also lives with the Herberts and their four children, Lancaster, Jenny, Nancy and Betty.
