|Birth||7 May 1736||Nathan was born on 7 May 1736 at Lyme, New London, Connecticut.1,2
|MovedTo||circa 1756||Mary Alger may have moved with her family from
Lyme or Nathan Brockway and Mary might already have been married at the
time they moved to New York. "The Descendents of Wolstan Brockway"
says that they moved AFTER they were married. Craig Brockway says that
they moved in 1756, but "Descendents" claims that he moved after his
marriage and the only marriage that is shown in that source is the
marriage to Elizabeth Thompson about 1769.1,3 CONFUSION
|Marriage #1||before 1759||Nathan Brockway married Mary Alger before 1759.1
|Marriage #2||after 1769||Nathan Brockway married Elizabeth Thompson
after 1769 in Lyme, Connecticut. This marriage is recorded in Lyme, CT
records. If he was living in NY when first four children were born, he
may have returned to New Lyme to find a New Wife.1,3
