On page 387 of his book Some Descendants of Robert Lounsberry of Rye, NY, author John M Freund discussed the references to "this John as a son of Stephen 4 (#2791) and Sarah (Raymond) of Bedford, Westchester, NY. This seems questionable for two reasons. Stephen 4 and Sarah had a son Stephen 5 born on 2 Dec 1799, exactly nine months after John's birth, and Stephen 4's will in 1839 names all his living children but not John. Neither of these points is conclusive, however."
