III.30. Martha Maltby, b. Sept. 11, 1720 (Branford Rec.) (Daniel 2, Wm. 1). Mar. May 9 (or 19), 1739, at Branford, Daniel Howd.
He is called "son of John and Hannah Howd, and was born May 23,
Under date "1718" there is a "Deed of John Howd to Daniel Malt- by, 3 acres." (Branford Rec.)
Note. I think Conn. Genealogies have made an error in calling Daniel Howd a son of Benjamin and Elizabeth (Whitehead) Howd. The fact that Daniel Howd's first child in named "Wilkinson" suggests very strongly that Hannah was a Wilkinson. A Daniel Howd died at Branford in 1756.
