There appears to be a bit of confusion about Jehu Burr's wife. She was the sister, not the daughter of John Cable. John, by the way, was married to Jehu's sister Sarah Burr.
Also, the Burrs and Cables were not from Roxbury, Suffolk, England. They were from Essex, England.
Upon arrival in America they settled in Roxbury, Suffolk Co., MA. Then they moved to Springfield MA in 1636 and ultimately to Fairfield CT in 1641.
Bios of Jehu Burr and John Cable are contained in the book, The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-33, available on ancestry.com.
