Subject: Samuel BROCKWAY III (1745-1823) - his wife Lucy BARNES (abt 1747 - 1822) New Haven CT
Author: Froelich_Tami

Classification: Query

I have found what I think is a big error in the FTM/Ancestry Tress that have been copied in to LOTS of peoples tress;
The parents of Lucy are listed as John BARNES (1686-1763) and Mary Bronson PORTER (1698-1774). I am doubting the truth of that because a.) Mary would have had to be 49 years old when Lucy was born (not impossible but unlikely), and b.) some genealogies have a daughter Lucy BARNES of John and Mary Bronson Porter b. 1728 d. 1755 - so perhaps there is the confusion??? I think Lucy b. 1747 d. 1822 (established by cemetery records) may have different parents but cannot find any historical records to say who that may be. Anyone able to shed any light on this? Thanks!
