The only reference I can find is "CUTTER" says that John Deming who married Honor Treat and who married Elizabeth who married Nathaniel Foote were brother and sister. I can find nothing on their parents.

NEHGR Vol CXLV Oct 1991 page 339 on the wife of John Edwards b. 30 May 1679 at Wethersfield "m. there 15 May 1707 Lucy Deming, b. 16 Feb 1674 (or 1676)... She was the daughter of Jonathan2 Deming (John1) by his second wife, Elizabeth Gilbert, and half-sister to Comfort (Deming) Beckley...".

On page 400 CUTTER has the families of Jonathan Deming. By his first wife Sarah Graves m. 21 Nov 1660 and his second Elizabeth Gilbert, daughter of Josiah and Elizabeth, m. 25 Dec 1672.

As far as I can tell someone, because there are lots of Johns and Jonathans in the extended families, speculated that Elizabeth and John's father might be a John or Jonathan. From there someone found a Jonathan in France who may/might/could/perhaps have been a father and then someone made a mistake and made Jonathan his grandfather.

Genealogy needs a "SPELL CHECK" for genealogists. Someone's stupid mistake is causing time to be wasted and preventing real progress from being made.

Subject: Re: John Deming born after mother died?

Thanks for the letter. I am aware of errors in that line. Unfortunately, I have not gotten around to researching that particular branch so I can not disprove it. What information I have, I copied from's Ancestral File. I realize this file has many errors, but at least it is a place to start. I would be interested if anyone has proven this line.

Thank-you again for the letter. I wish I could be of more help.

According to Ed Deming on the Deming message board: "The parents of Elizabeth Deming, probably the sister of John Deming, wife of Nathanial Foote and Thomas Welles are not known. John Deming had a son Jonathan, who's second wife was Elizabeth Gilbert, daughter of Josiah and Elizabeth [Belcher] Gilbert. The information on the parents of John or Elizabeth Deming (the settlers) is someone's mistake that has made it into a Family Tree file and is now all over the internet."

I have been attempting to prove or disprove the above. Any help?
