WORLD FAMILY TREE  has John Curtis' Death as Sep 17 1707

Elizabeth Wells (daughter of John, eldest son of Governor Thomas Wells). (see pg xi as quoted from The History of Ancient Wethersfield, Connecticut). However pg2 says "that John Curtiss' (2) wife Elizabeth's surname is not known. "The error was caused by a land record in which John Wells called John Curtiss 'uncle'. This John Wells was, as far as known, not related to Governor Thomas Welles; he was John (2) son of the widow Frances Wells and he married Sarah, first child of William (2) Curtiss. John Curtiss (2), then, was his uncle by marriage".
