RE: #37604287
Thank you for your comment. We are related, but just distant. On his birth date I didn't know exactly what to put. I have that he was born 1605/1606 in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England - that is known for sure - didn't know about the 1606/1606 - maybe you could put one of the dates in the birth section with a note in the bio that it could be either year. About Abigail - on it states that she was born 1645 in Windsor, Hartford, CT. and died in 1649 there also - some reports say 1645 others say 1648, so she was just a child when she died. Hope this helps some. Thank you again.

RE: Memorial #37604293 Mary Phelps
Thanks for the tip on the house in Hadley. Capt. Isaac Phelps and his wife Ann Gaylord are my husband's line.
Memorial #37604293 Mary Phelps

Are you related to the Phelps line? There's a fabulous 18th century home in Hadley Massachusetts that once belonged the Phelps family. Also, there is a very active Phelps family Facebook page.
