*(Note. This should have been copied "Joseph" and not John. Joseph was born May 21, 1738--or aged 12 in 1750. In early writing "Jos" and Jno. are difficult to distinguish).

In 1739 Elizabeth Maltbie joined the Church at Branford. A note received reads: "Elizabeth Pratt mar. William Maulbe." No dates.
