History of New London, Quintin Publication, found online at WorldVitalRecords and containing errors, states that "[Daniel Comstock] as appears from statements of his age, was born about 1630. His wife, whose name was Paltiah, was a daughter, or step-daughter, of John Elderkin. They had a son Daniel and eight daughters, whose births were not recorded, but they were all baptized by Mr. Bradstreet in April and November, 1671 [I find no son Daniel, unless there was an infant who died - I have not seen these baptisms, presumably they were at New London.]. After this two other sons were baptized: Kingland in 1673 and Samuel in 1677." [Daughter Patience was also baptized in 1673 according to "Comstock Family in America".]
