4.  Tamisen/Tamesin/Tamison/Tamsen SIAS, b. 1749 

One source has Tamisen as the daughter of Joseph's brother, Samuel SIAS I, and Phoebe __?__, apparently because Tamisen is said to appear in Samuel's will.  But other sources say she was merely a favored niece, not a daughter.  Or were there two Tamisen's?
