b. 1737


[DNA Kit 47983]


It is believed that the father of James was James b. 1694 and d. 1766 in Hartford Co., CT. 


Thus far I do not have a link between James who lived his entire life in Hartford Co., CT, with proposed father Samuel who lived his entire life in Boston, MA., as shown next:  Some believe James Sr’s  father was Samuel b. 1659 and d. 1710 Boston, Middlesex Co., MA.  He is the proven son of Samuel b. 1625 and d. 1695 Boston, Middlesex Co., MA.  And he is the proven son of James b. 1605 ENG.
