Joseph Heath (father of Samuel B) was born July 20, 1723 in Coventry, Tolland, CT. My Samuel's mother (and Joseph's wife) was Sarah Scripture, B July 15, 1723, also Coventry, Tolland Ct.
This is the universal parentage given for Samuel B, but he, himself, doesn't show up in the listings for Joseph and Sarah's 17 or 18 children. Also, I found Joseph's will and he leaves equal shares to his named 11 (some had died and one was excluded) children. Samuel was not among them. Do you, by any chance, have birth documentation of immigration for your English Samuel?
You're wonderful to help. Thank you! PS. My Samuel B was married to Sylvia Whipple, daughter of the Job Whipple, b. 1749
