 Family legend. Supposedly Elizabeth is a Mayflower Descendant. According to Conn. Historical Collections by Barber, many people from Branford, CT moved to Newark, NJ, taking all the church records. I have yet to find any New Jersey records showing this family, so information about the earliest years of the oldest 3 children, might be very helpful.
 His oldest 3 children, who were born in 1751, 1753, and 1755, were all baptized on June 12, 1757 in the Branford Congregational Church and on May 29, 1757, his wife was admitted as a member. This suggests that the family moved back to Branford in the spring of 1757.
