From my book "Line of Descent of George Roger Gilbert"

THE CROW FAMILY

From my notes:

February 27, 1996

Went to the Mormon Family History Center on Murray Hill Rd. in Vestal. I again looked through the Barbour Collection, Windsor, Conn. records. I found:

Windsor, Conn.

Crow, Martha, m. Tim[othy] Phelps, s. Sergt. [ ], Nov. 4, 1686
", Martha, d. Samuell, b. Nov. 13, 1690
", Mary, Alias Gillet, b. May 24, 1726
", Ruth, w. Samuel, c. Nov. 4, 1698
", Samuel, m. Martha Moses, Jan. 30, 1689

Next I looked at THE HISTORY OF ANCIENT WINDSOR by Stiles LC76 W 722st2 V.2 and found:
