Samuel Gilbert, son of Samuel and Mercy (Warner) Gilbert, was born on 1 May 1712.
He married Elizabeth Curtis, or Curtice, daughter of Samuel and Mary Curtice, on 7 Feb. 1732 at Hebron, Tolland County, Connecticut. Elizabeth died 25 June 1739.
He married Abigail Rowley, daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (Fuller) Rowley, on 22 May 1740 at Hebron, Tolland County, Connecticut. Abigail died in Oct. 1764.. Children of this marriage, and their direct descendants, are descendants of Mayflower passengers Edward Fuller and his wife (given name not known) via their younger son, Samuel, who accompanied them in 1620 and survived them -- taken in by his namesake uncle Samuel Fuller, also a Mayflower passenger -- when both parents died during the first winter at Plymouth.
He married Susannah (Gross) (Morris) Phelps, widow of Lt. Joseph Phelps and Dr. Roderick Morris.
Samuel died on 16 Oct. 1774, age 64, at Lyme, Grafton, New Hampshire and was buried on his farm on the bank of the Connecticut River.
Another (secondary or tertiary) source had birth date as 06 October 1711 and death as 15 October 1774. Sources for those claims are unknown; possible source for 1711 birth date is several death records which estimate his birth in that year.
The CT marriage record "First Book of Marriages" gives the marriage date for "Gillburd, Samuel Juner Col.& Elizabeth Curtice" as "Feb 7 1732/3"; thus, the correct New Style date would presumably be 07 February 1733.
(To avoid confusion when researching offspring:) Samuel was indeed the third successive in the line with the same given name; however, he appears repeatedly in the birth records of his children and at least one marriage record as "Jn.R" or "Juner" (Junior), rather than "III", presumably because his grandfather Samuel was by that time out of the picture.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Samuel by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Samuel:
Gilbert-4119 and Gilbert-8 appear to represent the same person because: The only information on Gilbert-4119, his birth date, is an exact match for the birth date of Gilbert-8. Please agree to merge these two profiles. Thanks!
