He is not in my direct line so I haven't really documented his line. He is my 3rd cousin 6 times removed. and granted there are mistakes in the book, like there is all genealogy books of this magnitude. I will say this in my direct line back to Richard I,there are some mistake in the Children listed under James 3rd son of Samuel on p 64 that shouldn't be in his line, but in another. But the Julia Etta Lyman who did all the research for the book devoted all of her life to researching the family and for the most part was accurate. The mistakes I have found are made by Lyman Coleman in putting the book together for publishing. I do believe that what she has on Jesse would be close too accurate. But you should be able to find records to document the fact. As the early New Englanders kept very good records and they can be easily found, if one will just put forth the time and money. Not every thing can be found on line for free. Jesse's father was born in Lebanon, Ct. I'm sure the Sate Library at Hartford should have some kind of record on who served in the Rev. War who lived in Connecticut. If not there probably the Records at NARA
