"13. Samuel2 Spencer (Thomas1), born about 1643, died at Windham, Conn., 8 Jan. 1726/7, aged 'about 88'; … He was the heir of his uncle, Barnabas Derifield of Braintree, Mass., and lived there for some years before settling in Windham. In assigning approximate dates of birth for Samuel and his brothers, we are assuming that the statement of his age at death was exaggerated. Even if our guess is right, it makes him over 40 at the birth of his first known child; if the Windham record is precise, it makes him about 46 at that time."
