Goodsell, Thomas (1646 England) & Hemingway, Sarah (1663 Connecticut)

Thomas Goodsell (1646 England-1713 Connecticut) was married to Sarah Hemingway (1663-1725 Connecticut) on 4 Jun 1684 in Connecticut.

They had the following children: Samuel, Mary, Sarah, Lydia, Deborah, Abigail (1), Abigail (2), Thomas (1) and Thomas (2).

I show the first Abigail as being born 4 Oc5 1697 and dying 4 Aug 1699. I show the second Abigail as being born 28 Feb 1699 (before the 1st Abigail died) and dying 12 Jan 1761. If the first had died prior to the second one being born, I can understand there being two Abigails; however, it seems strange that there would be a second Abigail in this situation. The 2nd Abigail was married to a Thomas Smith III and Caleb Chedsey, Jr.

I show the first Thomas being born 4 Jan 1702, marrying Martha Davenport 6 Oct 1731, and then dying about 1746. The second Thomas (a Reverend) was born 21 Dec 1705, married Mary Lewis on 20 Jul 1725 in Connecticut, and dying about Dec 1762/1763 in Connecticut. Again, it seems strange that parents would name two sons by the same name when they both lived to adulthood.

Hoping someone can solve my problem with two Abigales and two Thomas for this family.
