Shubael5BROWN, (Jedediah4, [Jr.], Jedediah3, John2, Thomas1 ) father of Roxana BROWN (who was the wife of John BURROWS) and father of Mary P. BROWN, was born 5 Oct 1758 in Stonington. He was the husband of Lydia PALMER. They married 16 March 1785. He died 18 Aug 1806 in Stonington.
The Genealogy records of the Palmer family give a different date of their marriage, which as a reader points out does not "fit" with the dates of the children's births. There is a birth record for Shubael but no marriage record in the Barbour Index of Vital Records of CT.
