    "John Elton of Middletown, Conn., is the immigrant ancestor. … The colonial records of John Elton are meager. … John Elton died probably in December or January, 1786/7 [error for 1686/7]. The inventory of his estate was taken Jan. 17, 1686/7. The Court made the settlement of estate March 3, 1686/7. Richard and John Hall, father and uncle of Jane, respectively, were appointed to assist her. The estate was very small, only 29 £. Three [Four] children with ages are named in the Court record. The youngest, Ebenezer aged eight months, is our ancestor."
