Who were the wives of Thomas Morehouse (1585?-1658) of Connecticut?

+5 votes

The wife of Thomas Morehouse Sr. (1585?-1658) of Connecticut is currently listed as Isabel Keller, but it seems that it was actually his son Thomas Jr. who married an Isabel Keeler (a real person).   Instead some trees say his wife was an Isabel Pindar, but as noted in the profile biography his widow Isabel may have been a second wife.  

So was the first wife of Thomas Morehouse Sr. actually a Mary Sherwood (perhaps Sherwood-89)?  The Morehouse and Sherwood families were neighbors in Wethersfield, both families moved to Stamford in 1640, and both moved to Fairfield about 1648.
