About John Stanton
1. John resided in Groton, Connecticut.
2. "The baptismal record of Thomas' children is irregular and incomplete; there is no baptismal record of a son John, but my belief in based up on these reasons. The date of his birth was certainly not later than 1682 since he married in 1702. No grandson of Thomas' was old enough to have a son in 1682. Therefor I argue that John was himself a grandson. Now our records are accurate of all the grandchildren of Thomas' except those through the son Thomas where there has been a confessed difficulty and lack of records. If John was a descendant of Thomas, he was a grandson; if a grandson, it must have been through Thomas. Is not the way he names his children significant? His first one was for his wife, his second for him, his third for - was it not for his father? Until there is proof or this sonship, however, that cannot be disputed I place this record in the appendix." --
William Stanton as recorded in the Wheeler source.
