Who are the parents of Azariah Grant b abt 1748

+4 votes
Azariah Grant b abt 1748/49 (est from tombstone inscription) d 20 Feb 1819 Berlin, Washington, Vermont, USA m 20 Aug 1770 Glastonbury, Hartford, Connecticut, USA Abigail Crowfoot.  I have been to these places and seen the tombstone and marriage record.  Some say, he is the son of Azariah Grant b abt 1722 Windsor, CT and Abigail Beament.  I have found nothing that will lead me to conclude that to be true.  If he is the son of Azariah Grant b 1722 it would have to have been with his first wife Eunice unknown.  That is more likely; however, I find no real documentation of records for circumstancial evidence or vital record to support any of the theorys.

I have DNA matches (triangulations) with other Azariah descendants and descendants of Matthew. The matches seemed to be pretty strong for the implied 9th cousin relations, but not impossible. Azariah is missing from the descendants of Matthew Grant, but I did not see a wife named Eunice. I thought about the possibility that he was illegitimate, and the author left him out. It is odd that Azariah Sr also did not mention him in his will, only his 3 daus.

Another possibility is that they did not know his exact birthdate, and he was b after the marriage.

I could find no documentary evidence for his father.
