William Hall and Dorothy Plumb's
253 anniversary is today, married in 1757 in Middletown CT, she was 21 and he was 22.  This is another double relationship but I'm only doing the 1st cousin 9 times removed route.  All of this is covered above.  Odd that their daughter was born on their anniversary.

Charles is the boys' 2nd cousin 3 times removed.  His father is Thomas Resin Galt, the boys' 1st cousin 4 times removed.  Thomas' mother is Mary Ann Brown, the boys' 3rd great-grandaunt and sister of Charlotte Brown, the boys' 3rd great-grandmother who married Thomas B. Ray and begot Lotti B. Ray who married Samuel Hazelitt Cotton and begot Marie Antoinette Cotton in 1891.

Elizabeth Burr
died 257 years ago today in 1753 at age 14, probably in Fairfield, CT. Liz is the boys' 7th great-grandaunt.  Her sister is the boys' 7th great-grandmother Ellen Burr, the mother of Talcott Gold.  If my records are correct, her mother also died on the exact same day

Elizabeth Wakeman
died 257 years ago on the same day in 1753 at age 51 also in Fairfield, CT.  Weird, I wonder what happened? Elizabeth Wakeman is the boys' 8th great-grandmother and the wife of Capt. Seth Samuel Burr.  I did a search of the records and I show separate records for each of their births and deaths with the spouse's name.  I must find out more!
