Which John Lee did Elizabeth Crampton of Guilford/Killingworth marry in 1686?

This Elizabeth Crampton was born in about 1664 at Guilford, CT to Dennis Crampton (1630s England - 1690 Guilford, CT) and first wife Mary Parmelee (1631 England - 1667 Guilford, CT). Her mother died at or shortly after the birth of her little brother Nathaniel Crampton. Her father married second Sarah Hull (widow of Nicholas Munger and mother of 2 little boys) in 1669 at Guilford and they had 3 more children. This family "lived some years at Killingworth, CT" and then was back in Guilford by the time Sarah Hull died in 1689 and Dennis Crampton married third to Frances in 1690.

Elizabeth Crampton married John Lee in about 1686 at Killingworth, CT. THE QUESTION IS WHICH JOHN LEE DID SHE MARRY? Genealogists claim that she married John Lee of Westfield, MA and had 8 children with him there. Other genealogists claim that she married John Lee of Guilford, CT and had 9 children with him there. These are completely different lists of children not just a debate over where they were born! Obviously it cannot be both!

I am descended from John Lee's and Elizabeth Crampton's (?) son John Lee born 05 May 1688 at Guilford, CT.

Can anyone help with this, please?
