  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: He was Captain of the 17th Regiment CT Infantry, in the Revolutionary War. CONFLICT: DAR application for Mrs. Florence Smith Spencer, #15478, shows descent from Hezekiah and wife Chole Pinney. However, Chloe was Hezekiah's daughter-in-law, wife of Hezekiah II. Mrs. Spencer next shows Luther Holcombe and wife Susanna Holcombe. Susanna was Capt. Hezekiah's second child, but McPherson shows she married only Samuel Forward. There is a Luther Holcombe, son of Asahel that married an untraced Susanna. In researching Mrs. Spencer's records, Carol Laun cites the Simsbury Vital Records, pages 68, 217, 227; East Granby Vital Records, pages 95, 98, 129; East Granby Church Records, pages 34, 47, 123; the Alderman Genealogy; the Episcopal Church Records, page 57; and "The Report, Oct 1968, OH Genealogical Society" - all viewable at the Salmon Brook Historical Society in Granby of which she is Curator.
