Regarding DEATH DATE --Donald Lines Jacobus (the expert on New Haven genealogy) never mentions a death date for Rebecca (Turner) the wife of Thomas Mix. The New Haven town record reads: Mrs Rebekah Mix Decd; the 14th of June 1731<ref>Vital Records of New Haven 1649-1850 Part I. pg 189. Hartford: The Connecticut Society of the Order of the Founders and Patriots of America, 1917</ref>.

 

It has been assumed by many genealogists that this record refers to Rebecca, wife of Thomas. However, Jacobus lists the death date of [[Pardee-19|Rebecca (Pardee) Mix]], wife of [[Mix-38|Samuel]] as 14 June 1731. He cites the New Haven Vital Records and the North Haven Center Cemetery Tombstone. The Hale Collection listing reads: "Mix, Rebecca, wife of Samuel, June 14, (unable to read)". The mostly unreadable [http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=79804247&PIpi=51153340 stone] does confirm that it belongs to the wife of Samuel.

Conclusion: 14 June 1731 is not the death date of Rebecca (Tunrner) Mix, but the death date of Rebecca (Pardee) Mix.

Any of you Mix descendants (or others) want to weigh in on this?
