  • Name Bethiah KELSEY  [1
    • "A Genealogy of the Descendants of William Kelsey": That this Bethia Kelsey, wife of David Philips, was a daughter of William seems beyond contradiction. Hinman says that it was Bethia Kelsey, widow of William who became the wife of David Phillips of Milford, but the hartford Town Records disprove this by the record of Sept. 1665, when it was voted that "the town will give ten pounds to David phillips, of Milford provided he remove from hartford with Bethia Kelsy (wrongly copied as Kelly) his wife, at such a time as the townsmen appoint him." As William was living for at least 10 years after this meeting, it could not have been his widow who was here named, so it must have been a daughter. Nothing further is known of Bethia and her husband, David Phillips. [1]
