The biography at FInd A Grave and the Sons of the American Rev. both show a Mary Conyers as a second wife with a daughter, Mary. It may be possible but the dates do not make sense - an additional source is needed before adding this wife.Smith-40964 11:57, 17 March 2015 (EDT)

Available at Wolcott genealogy Archive.org. ** note - "In 1912 a revised genealogy called the "Wolcott genealogy : the family of Henry Wolcott, one of the first settlers of Windsor, Connecticut", was compiled by George Chandler Wolcott, and published by the Wolcott Society. It included female lines, and Wolcotts and Walcott families not descended from Henry. A 1950 revision, also called "Wolcott Genealogy", was compiled for the Wolcott Society by A. Boehmer Rudd. Another revison called "Wolcott Family in America, 1578-1986" was compiled by Wolcott Society Registrar, Robert Charles Griffen, and Mitchell Alegre in 1986. These first four books are no longer available. A new 700 page genealogy was published by the Wolcott Society in 2002. It was compiled by Society Registrar, John B. Wolcott, and Assistant Registrar and Database Manager, Charles V. Waid. Because of the increased volume of data now in the Society’s records, the new book only covers the first seven generations of American Wolcotts, Walcotts and Wilcotts." Wolcott Family Society Website
