New Jersey.[1]
New York.[2]
There is conflicting evidence on what year William Winter was born. Most of the records come from compilations of family trees.
  1. One database indicates he was born in 1647.[3]
  2. A second database reports that William was born in 1654.[4]
  • The fact is, William was probably born within the range of these nine years; definitive proof has yet to be discovered.
Sources also disagree on William's place of birth.
  1. The West's Family Data Collection - Individual Records says he was born in Monmouth, New Jersey.[3]
  2. The Heritage's Millennium File reports William's place of birth as Woodbrigde, Essex, New Jersey, USA.[4]

Again, there is conflicting information about William's marriage to Hannah Grover.

  2. 1688.[2]
  3. The IGI has him marrying Hannah in 1678, 1679, 1688 and twice more in 1688.
