[sibling(s) unknown]

John Atwater's birth year would not have been born 9 years before the marriage.  His birth is shown as. 

John Atwater

Born 26 Apr 1774 in Westfield, Hampden, Massachusetts

Not trying to be difficult, but having trouble answering your question, given the disparities in birth and marriage year for both people. Thanks for any clarification. 

Frank

Thank you for noting this. This was a data entry error, which is now corrected. The marriage date is April, 1, 1798.
