About George Sanders, of Simsbury

“George Sanders had George, perhaps by former w. old eno. at least to be tax. with his f. 1675 ; ...”


From link to A Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England: S-Z By James Savage, John Farmer, Orrando Perry Dexter Page 20

SANDERS, Christopher, Windsor 1671, came short time bef. as seems prob. had Daniel, wh. d. 22 Dec. 1675, at 11 days old; Susanna, b. 20 Nov. 1676; Daniel, again, 27 Oct. 1678; and Eliz. 30 Apr. 1681 ; and it may be he was unsuccess. in trade, and rem. to Rehoboth, for one of this name was there in 1690 ... GEORGE, Windsor, br. of Christopher, propound. for freem. 1667, when he was ens. at Killingworth, m. bef. 1674, Mary, d. of George Saxton, had George, perhaps by former w. old eno. at least to be tax. with his f. 1675 ; and d. 16 Nov. 1690, leav. Mary, then 13 yrs. old, and Abiah, a. 6. ... GEORGE, Windsor, br. of Christopher, acc. to Stiles, 770, rem. to Simsbury, m. 17 Dec. 1691, Abigail, perhaps d. of Nathaniel Bissell, wh. Stiles prints Russell, had, he says, Hannah, b. 23 May previous, and he d. 5 Dec. 1697. Very much confusion to this name exists, and it may not be wholly dissipat. by reducing two Georges to one.
