Hi, I am interested in Dorothys line. Particularly her father William Hinckley Platt, mom Susan Hinckley Platt, grandfather Sherman Hinckley, which brings me to her great grandparents, Porter and Elizabeth Hinckley. I have seen information that Elizabeth was Elizabeth Scripture daughter of Eleazer and Allice Pearl of CT. I am descended thru Eleazers son Roswell Scripture. However I have run across a source who claims that Porter married an Elizabeth Merrill, daughter of Dr. Samuel Merrill. I know that Porter and Elizabeths two daughters married Simon S. Merrill, but I cannot figure out if the other source is just wrong, or if she is getting confused with the other Merrill connection. Or maybe if Porter were first married to an Elizabeth Merrill before Elizabeth Scripture, or was Elizabeth married to a Merrill before she married Porter. I know, sounds confusing. But if you have any info to help clear up this mystery I would love to hear it. I am trying to document the Elizabeth Scripture Hinckley line. Thanks for any help you can be! Barb Kineke
