Jabez Fitch (Fitch-1870) was married to Hannah Perkins (1733-1808) in Norwich-Lisbon, New London, Connecticut on June 3, 1760. Most sources list Hannah's parents as Rachel Leonard and Jabez Perkins. But one source lists her parents as Matthew Perkins and Hannah. This source also gives different parents for Jabez listing James Fitch and Alice Bradford.

"Connecticut Marriages, 1630-1997", database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F759-Z8B : 11 January 2020), Jabez Fitch, 1760.

Could someone more knowledgeable than me in regards to this time period and location please confirm that Hannah Perkins (Perkins-11119) should be added as Jabez' spouse and that the above source is somehow mistaken.

Jabez Fitch (1737-1812) of Norwich, Connecticut and Hyde Park, Vermont, served as a soldier in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. The Jabez Fitch diary, from 22 Aug. 1776 to 15 Dec. 1777, reflects his service as a lieutenant in the American army, and his experiences as a British prisoner during the Revolutionary War. Fitch was taken prisoner by the British at the Battle of Long Island, 27 Aug. 1776, and exchanged 15 Dec. 1777, after fifteen months and fifteen days in captivity, most of which time he was quartered at New Lots, Kings County, Long Island.
