  2. The cited death record appears to be the only mention of Preserved Davenport. It does not actually specify that Preserved is a child of Thomas. Assuming he is, the assumption would intuitively be that he was a twin of Jonathan that died in infancy, but there is no indication of that in any of the records pertaining to Preserved or Jonathan. In particular, why wasn't he baptized when Jonathan was? There is no indication even of what gender Preserved is, though the vast majority of children given that name are male. But barring more evidence, we don't really know Preserved's parents, his gender, his birthdate, or his age at death.
