Sorry for the title. I could resist. =D

I was wondering if someone could help me sort of Elizabeth Bucknam's children. She had three named Benjamin. One seemed to have died young. I am trying to decide if the other two need to be merged.

Can someone help me out? Her children are listed here: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/110334251

Just wondering how accurate this is. Can someone help me out?

Find A Grave Memorials,when you see people added in blue letters.This

means someone ,at a later date added these names.They may or may not

be accurate.Always try too prove them,just do not just accept it.

Okay. We just need to find out if she had those kids. Perhaps there is a Whittemore book?

Be carefull using books as proof.They seldom show proof that has been

verified.That is a slippery slope too travel down.Those 3 Benjamin?S are

three different people,they are surmising one of them is her son.

My advice,do not waste your time with this.

Okay. But, I really want to clear this up. I'm directly connected to the lady and her daughter.  But, fair enough.....

It looks like from the death records there was a third Benjamin died age 23, doesn't have his birth shown.  Records of Births, Marriages and Deaths in the Town of Malden, Massachusetts 1649-1850, University Press, Cambridge, MA (Google it)

Malden Births (p. 102)

Whittemore, Benjamin, s. Benjamin, Jan. ––, 1667. CC

Whiitemore,  Benjamin, s. Benjamin, 2: 9m: 1670. CC

Malden Deaths (p. 391)

Whittemore, Benjamin, s. Benjamin, Mar. 31, 1668. CC

Whittemore,  Benjamin, s. Benjamin, ––: 10m: 1676. CC
