Father of Hannah Seeley (Seeley-706) b. 1692 Fairfield, CT ?

I have been researching the parents of Hannah Seeley (Seeley-706) via LDS records. Her mother is generally listed as Rebecca Sanford but her father is listed both as John Seeley (Seeley-56) and Joseph Seeley (Seeley-36) (who were brothers). Both John and Joseph have records of multiple wives including Rebecca Sanford (I'm also working to try to resolve the wives in some rational way). I have posted some typical LDS references showing both John and Joseph as Hannah's father in the (Seeley-706) profile.

My current question is to ask if anyone might have access to an alternate source that could help clarify this situation. I have not made any connections yet and will try to find something definitive before doing so. I would appreciate any advise or assistance.
