  8. Charles Weygant, The Sacketts of America, Weygant does not record this marriage. Indeed, he records that Martha died three years earlier on 3 Sep 1684 but as this is known to have been the death date of her father, John of New Haven, the report of her death was clearly erroneous and premature!
