  • Holt, Nellie. Beardsley Genealogy, The Family of William Beardsley One of the First Settlers of Connecticut (1950) Page 8 The death date of 20 Jul 1736 provided by this source is incorrect. It would have been impossible for Hannah to have 14 children between the date of her marriage in 1727 and 1736. In fact, Jacobus states that her last child (Jemima) was born in 1756!
