About Elizabeth Robbins


Elizabeth Rose is the correct name for this person. Family, Uncertain Marriage

We know that Joshua Butler married Elizabeth (_____) on December 24, 1680. Unfortunately Elizabeth's maiden name is not included in the original entry in Wethersfield Vital Records (Vol 1, Pg 16). Stile's History of Wethersfield identifies her as Elizabeth Butler, daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth Butler. In a conflicting entry, (Vol 2, Pg 173), Stiles correctly identifies the husband of Elizabeth as Samuel Emmons, and this is verified by probate records. In all the extensive research on the Butler family, this Elizabeth has not been found. Mrs. Elizabeth Robbins gravestone denotes her death date as April 24, 1736. The most likely candidate according to Jacobus is Elizabeth Rose, daughter of Daniel and Elizabeth Goodrich Rose, born April 15, 1665. The dates fit perfectly, and the two families owned adjoining properties in Wethersfield, Connecticut.[1] https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Butler-3434

Birth: Apr. 15, 1665 Wethersfield Hartford County Connecticut, USA Death: Apr. 24, 1736 Wethersfield Hartford County Connecticut, USA
