St. John / Sension Discrepancies

Matthias St. John who m. Elizabeth Trowbridge

There appears to be some controversy about the St. John lineage in various documents. This page seeks to identify the discrepancies and attempts to find resolution.

Examples of problematic St. John Families:

1. Matthias St. John who married Elizabeth Trowbridge.

One says he was b abt 1668 Norwalk, CT, son of Mark St. John and Elizabeth Stanley
Another says he was b abt 1695, son of Matthias St. John and Rachel Bouton

Which is it? I haven't merged these two families until we can resolve this discrepancy. -- jillaine 21:49, 20 November 2008 (EST)

Matthias St. John who m. Rachel Bouton

Another case of confused parentage: Was Matthias who married Rachel Bouton:

1. Son of Mark St. John & Elizabeth Stanley?


2. Son of Matthias St. John & Elizabeth Unknown/Seeley?
