- Born: 1 Aug 1768, Fairfield, Fairfield, CT 251
RESEARCH: The dates of the births of David and Mary are onl y five months apart. Unless the parish reverend used two d ifferent calendars, this is very suspect. There was no not ation that Mary died shortly after birth. It would have be en impossible for a five month pregnancy to be viable. Som e records in that time used January as the New Year and Som e used Mar or Apr as New Year.
