Who is the Davis wife of Timothy Cady (1716–1762, Stafford, Connecticut)?

From Descendants of Nicholas Cady of Watertown Mass., 1645-1910 by Orrin Peer: "Timothy CADY, (Daniel3, James 2, Nicholas 1), b. Killingly, Conn., Sept. 23, 1716; m. Stafford, Conn., July 3, 1750, Esther Davis, dau. of Cornelius, an early settler in Stafford. He d. Stafford, May 27, 1762."

But some online sources give Timothy Cady's wife as Mehitable Davis.

So, is this the same person?

I think it's best to follow the records, unless there is overwhelming evidence that the record is wrong. The Barbour Collection says Thomas m. Mehitable and Mehitable was d/o Cornelius. Cornelius seems not to have a d. Esther. Further Mehitable was the widow named in Timothy's probate

they are the same. Ester was her middle name. both profiles need to be merged.

What is your source for this information?   Did you find a birth record, marriage record or some other record?

While researching Private James Lull, I've sourced 2 children born to James and wife Mehitable and James' m(2) to Mehitable Cady.  Hopefully this helps!
