lyman connection to pierponts and morgans

Judge Joseph Lyman, Jr. of Northampton, MA. was F.D.R.'s
great-grandfather via daughter Catherine and her daughter
Sara (Sallie) Delano Roosevelt.
Joseph's sister Mary married Lynde Lord, Jr. of Litchfield,
CT. Their daughter Mary Sheldon Lord married Rev. John Pierpont, abolitionist preacher. Their daughter Juliet
married Junius Morgan. Their son was J. Pierpont Morgan.
Juliet's brother James Lord Pierpont composed "Jingle Bells." F.D.R. and J. Pierpont Morgan were third cousins.
Mary Sheldon Lord Pierpont's brother Henry Edwin Lord was my
great-great-great-grandfather.
The Lords lived next door to Rev. Lyman Beecher in Litchfield. The last slave freed by Lynde Lord, Sr. in 1801 moved next door and became a Beecher domestic. She helped raise Harriet Beecher Stowe and Henry Ward Beecher.
Lyman Beecher is probably a distant cousin of Catherine Lyman Delano. Can anybody prove this?
