Thank you for your input. I appreciate the various aspects of the puzzle that you have pointed out. I cannot find Miller's sources; the article does not include them. The dates for Sarah, daughter of Samson, make me think of a grave marker but that is just a guess.

The Dodge Family Association is very aware of my opinion regarding Tristram Dodge of Oyster Bay and his wife Sarah Hawxhurst and then Sarah Weekes...or not, depending on your opinion! They have been very gracious as I have challenged Dodge info.

The Hawxhurst forum is so small...I don't know of anyone currently working on the Hawxhurst family. The Long Island Genealogy website is a wonderful source, but the Hawxhurst family isn't even listed in their surname database.

I do believe the calendar change is the reason for the 1726/1727 marriage. So how does that affect the 1702 birth and the 1728 death? Do I add a year?

I really wish I knew Miller's sources. I don't know what the practice was in the late 1800s and early 1900s. I have seen several genealogies from that time that don't list sources...

As for The Oyster Bay Town Records, I really do trust them. It is very easy for me to assume more than is there, as in the case with William. There are several town records in Volume I that mention William. I wish I could track all the Hawxhurst land but it is a daunting task! And I don't think enough info exists....oh well....

Thanks again:)
