  3. We have little information about when John was born. The will seems to list him between Eliezer and Nathaniel so after 1660 but before 1677. His first child is born in 1694, which suggests born before, say, 1673, but there is not much room to belong to wife Margaret, so most likely even earlier, a son of first wife Hannah. Then it is somewhat a matter of juggling estimated birth dates. Typically men were married older than woman, so since Experience and John both have their first child in 1694, we give John the earlier birth, 1665, and put Experience at 1667.
