    Notes:

    Name:
    Many have placed Elizabeth Stevens, daughter of Thomas Stevens and Mary Fletcher, as being the wife of Abraham Post. Where I do not doubt the fact that Abraham did marry an Elizabeth Stevens, I do not believe that it is the same one who married Nathaniel Chittenden. I am using the book "Families of Early Guilford, Connecticut" as my guide. Further research is needed as to the the Elizabeth Stevens who married Abraham Post.
