- (Research):The book "Maryland Marriages 1634-1777", Baltimore Gen. Pub. Co., cites a marriage date of 1738, clearly a misreading of the church records. Martha Hyland, Rebecca's mother, left provisions for Rebecca Hyland Kankey in her will dated Aug 17, 1766. (per Goetz) After John passed away in 1784, Mary had the land surveyed August 1, 1785. An inventory of the estate was completed December 7, 1785. A copy of page 387 from the Maryland State Hall of Records indicates that the Orphans Court, 7 January (?) 1787, made a final division of John's estate. "By the Orphans court of 7 January 1787. By a account of the Estate of John Kankey exhibited by Rebeckah Kankey the adm. on the 26th day of Nov last a paper; it appears that there remains of the said dec. Estate the sum of (pound sign) 484..11..7 p Current money to be distributed according to law." One third was then distributed to Rebecca, with the rest divided equally among ten children, listed as Andrew, Rebeckah, Harman, Millicent, Zebulon, Stephen, Margarot, Elizaboth, Nicholas, and Charles. On June 4, 1787 the land office passed the 1785 survey. On May 19, 1789 a Land Patent was granted to Rebecca Kankey for Hanse's Point. Rebecca's last will was dated April 25, 1800.
