I think these parents (John and Elizabeth) and the grandparents (John and Margery) may not exist. A John Curtis married Elizabeth Wells in Stratford, Connecticut, and this seems mightily coincidental. The Parish registers simply don't support their existence, let alone their relationship to these three alleged sons.
