If you look at the list of William's children, there really isn't anywhere among the first wife's children for John to have been born. And the death of Ann (Putnam) Trask is firm. So let's disconnect Ann Putnam

Good point if her date of death or his date of birth are correct. Do you have any sources that contradict the sources we have?

Hi I think this John was born to second wife not Ann Putnam who died in 1676
