Research Note

Per his wife's memorial (135000181), his first name was Hugh Crague, and they married in 1719. Fetterly-28 07:22, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

According to the source below, Hugh married Elizabeth Warren on Nov. 11,1719 of Palmouth (?) then moved to Windham, Maine. See p. 42 of "Windham in the Past" (below). This doesn't make sense if he drowned at sea. Fetterly-28 02:26, 11 June 2022 (UTC)
