    [This death date is simply irreconcilable with the birth of a second Benjamin in 1727. Probate shows that no son named Benjamin survived. After analysis of possible errors, the simplest seems to be that the town clerk added the age at death, possibly well after the fact, using the wrong birth record? If the age at death is thrown out, this death fits perfectly to the second Benjamin, with the first one dying sometime before 1727. Any manipulation of dates requires assuming severe, or multiple, errors to come up with a working situation, so seems less likely.]
