[S292] Robert Charles Anderson, Great Migration Begins, 1770, and 1772 "Savage attempted to match the recorded births and baptisms of children of Samuel Stone at Hartford with the children mentioned by Samuel Stone and his second wife in their wills by assuming that Lydia or Abigail must be Elizabeth, and that the unnamed son born in 1649 must be Samuel. Approximate ages found in the ‘Winthrop medical records show that this solution is unlikely for the daughters and not the only solution for son Samuel, and that Samuel Stone and his second wife had at least two children not recorded in the Hartford records."
