Martin Winchell-515 must have married his 2nd wife, Lucy, between 1730 and 1735. Lucy Griswold-1240 was mentioned in her father's (Matthew Griswold-379) 1737 will in a manner that suggests that she was married by that time. The Griswold and Winchell families were early settlers of Windsor, CT and shared a long association. Unfortunately Matthew did not mention his daughters' married surnames. By process of elimination, Lucy Griswold appears to be the strongest candidate as Martin's wife, but I have yet to find confirming evidence. Can anyone help?

I checked Matthew's probate. Sometimes there are hints in the other documents - no such hints. I also looked for probate of her mother and found nothing.
Thanks Anne. I read the documents too, but nice to have another pair of eyes look them over. I think the best hope lies in deed records, but don’t know if/when I’ll be able to access those.
