Discrepancy re: date of death - one record shows no known date, but estimated to be between 1690 and 1698.

West Indies Trader

George Sexton

George’s wife Hannah Spencer was born 15 Apr 1653 in Haddam, Middlesex, CT. Her parents were Thomas Spencer and Sarah Bearding. Hannah died 1 Apr 1715 in Haddam, Middlesex, CT.

Alternatively, Hannah died 19 Sep 1680 Westfield, Connecticut; only 10 days after borth of son Charles on 9 Sep 1680, though if she died at that early date, the mother of Nathaniel Sexton born 5 Dec 1682 in Westfield, CT is left unexplained.

They were living at Newton, Long Island in October of 1690.

One family historian, V. O. Gehrke speculates George was born 1656 Limerick, Ireland and died at sea; possibly buried there. He was a sea captain trading with the West India Islands.

He executed a quit claim deed to his brothers on 31 October 1690 after fathers death.
