Their births, as well as the marriage of Mary Ward and John Palmer is also in the Barbour Collection.

Mary WARD and John PALMER were married on 18 January 1728/9 in Killingworth, Middlesex County, Connecticut.16,32 John PALMER, son of Gershom PALMER and Sarah Fenner , was born circa 1705 in Connecticut. He died in 1788 at the age of 83 in Dutchess County, New York.42

John Palmer is shown in various databases as born in Stonington CT and/or Killingworth. The Wards were in Killingworth so likely he did live there to meet Mary. He is said to have died in Pawling and/or Dover in Dutchess Co, NY.

Mary WARD and John PALMER had the following children:

i.

Ann PALMER was born on 20 November 1730 in Killingworth, Middlesex County, Connecticut.

108

ii.

Fenner PALMER was born on 16 September 1735 in Killingworth, Middlesex County, Connecticut.

Odd to me is that only Prince, son of John & Mary was born 15 Sep 1735, as listed in the Barbour Collection. I suspect Fenner and Prince may indeed be the same son; his name changed. It would be a bit strange to omit the birth of twins. And in fact I did find that he himself possibly changed his name.

He is said to have married Lydia Buell in Killingworth, but children listed as born in Dover Plains, Dutchess Co NY. Lydia said to be either the daughter of Nathaniel Buell and Deborah Horton, or of Nathaniel's brother Joseph and his wife Anna Colton. No daughter is listed in either of their families in the book History of the Buell Family in England and in America, Albert Welles, 1881. She could fit into either family if the births given for the other children are correct. In examining the records in the Barbour collection, the only Lydia [Lidea Buell] of the right age to marry Fenner Palmer was born 19 Apr 1740, the daughter of Samuel Buell who married "Ledia Willcocks" [Lydia Wilcox, or Wilcoxsin], 1 Jan 1734/5 - but then datases online say that Lydia married a Hoadley.
Lydia, wife of Fenner, was born perhaps 1736-1738, died 18 May 1776, in Hoosick, Rensselaer Co, NY
