Sylvester, Susannah and John have birthdates too early to allow them to be Sam & Grissell's kids. There is at least one not necessarily reliable online source (Geni) that states Grissell had siblings Sylvester b. 1703, Susannah b. 1704 and John b. 1707.

Susannah is shown there as having married Jonathan Tuthill, b c1691, in Oysterponds, son of Henry. This much is confirmed by “Tuttle and Tuthill Lines in America; Compiled by Alva M Tuttle” Published in 1968 by the Compiler. I haven't yet found anything about Sarah who has no dob showing. Anybody have anything more?

I am editing it to represent a different individual with the same name, which explains why the Changes page may look a little strange.
