Stephen Francis Prouty b. 1796, MA or VT

Most Prouty sources say that Stephen Francis Prouty born 1796 in Massachusetts is the son of Francis and Mary Kendall Prouty. The children of Francis and Mary Kendall Prouty are listed as Abel, b. 23 Dec 1767; Tirzah, b. 15 Feb 1769; and Isaac, b. 23 May 1771 and then Stephen Francis b. 1796. That is a 15 year gap which raises a flag. Abel, son of Francis and Mary Prouty was married to Elizabeth Burnham and they had several children, one of which is named Francis, b. 14 Jan 1796 as recorded at Marlboro, Windham Co., Vermont. It seems more likely that this Francis is one in the same as Stephen Francis Prouty, making him a son of Abel Prouty and grandson to Francis Prouty. Can anyone confirm or dispute this?
