John COUNCEL
Rebecca __?__
Husband:  John COUNCIL / COUNCEL
Birth:  by 1721
Death:  Oct-Dec 1766
Will Signed:  14 Oct 1766
Will Proved:  13 Dec 1766, Queen Anne's Co., MD

If son John was born by 1745, our subject was likely born at least 24 years earlier (the average age of a man at first marriage is 23).

Marriage:
Wife:  Rebecca / Rebeccah __?__
Birth:  by 1725

Wives are, on average, four years younger than their husbands.

Children:
1.  John COUNCEL, b. by 1745
2.  Mary COUNCEL, b. ca. 1750s
3.  Ann COUNCEL, b. ca. 1750s

Son John was clearly an adult (over age 21) in 1766, so he had to have born by 1745.  At the same time, his two sisters were still unmarried, so they were likely younger.
