    • This is exactly one year off. As we are quite sure that she was born in Rhode Island and moved to Connecticut later with her parents, we believe that this was entered into the Stonington records after the fact. Some town clerks were known to do this when new people moved into their town.

  • Notes 
    • I have shown that the Samuel Allen who married Lydia Hastings is not the same Samuel Allen who is the father of Elizabeth. His daughter Elizabeth has a different birthday, lives in a different town and has a different husband. This line shows up in the on-line family trees and the OneWorldTrees, but it is proven to be incorrect. The details are as follows.

      Baker in "Montville" shows that Lydia Hastings, dau of John Seaborn Hastings and Lydia Champney, married Samuel Allen of Massachusetts. They had a daughter Elizabeth Allen b. abt 1716 who married Jedidiah Graves. The Barbour Collection shows Elizabeth Allen married Jedidiah Graves June 1737 in East Haddam, Connecticut. The only way to reconcile this would be to say that Baker has the birth date of Elizabeth wrong and that she first married Samuel in 1732 and secondly married Jedidiah in 1737. BUT, according to The Barbour Collection Samuel Dewey and Elizabeth were continuing to have children until 1742, which means she could not have married Jedediah in 1737, thus she is a different person.
