This John Trask b 1666 would not have married in 1670 (date is actually 1679, but this john is still too young) [Woodbury-535|Christian Woodbury]] or anyone else. And it is John the widower who marries [[Dodge-1365|Mary Dodge] shortly after Christian's death. I am connecting the two women with their proper husband John b. 1653.
