NOTES: Most records including Caleb's birth record DO NOT indicate a first name of John, however, he is referred to as "John" Caleb in the Will of his father. (John) Caleb, died by 4 Mar 1675, the date of his Inventory; his Will is dated 2 Dec 1674; Probated - 1675 His occupations were farmer/weaver - his religion, Puritan (Congregational) Will and Inventory filed at Fairfield, Fairfield Co, CT - p36, Vol, 1675-1 689; wife, Hannah (Smith), and all children on chart are named. Hannah, the youngest daughter is said to have married Nathaniel Cross, in many early writings. This has been determined to be in error, for it was Hannah Knapp, daughter of Moses and Abigail (Westcott) Knapp, that he married, per Bond by Moses Knapp, in 1713, in which he names Nathaniel Cross as one of his 3 sons-in-law. No further record has been found on this Hannah Knapp, daughter of (John) Caleb.
