  13. Weygant records marriage, same date, to Hannah Denison. He records Hannah's parents, James Denison and Bethiah Boykin, as having married in 1643. The long gap of 67 years between this date and the date of Sarah Denison's marriage to Joseph Sackett in 1710 suggests that the recording of "Hannah" instead of "Sarah" was a case of mistaken identity rather than merely a transcription error.
