  • Notes 
    • CONFLICT: AFN:3GLN-V5 lists death as 25 Jan 1736. DEATH: age 91 BIOGRAPHY: From Internet jholcomb: "misappropriated for his mythical brother Thomas as on the newly-cut Holcombe tombstone in Granby Cemetery. His unusual first-name occurs some 16 times in the Old Testament but was not sufficiently familiar to the compilers of the Phelps Genealogy who, at least several times called him Benjamin. Benajah appears not to have moved to Simsbury with his two brothers....". This family stayed in Windsor.
