George   " 34 M   "   "
Based on other records, James was born in VT and Clarissa in NJ, so it seems the blanket "NY" as birthplace for everyone is erroneous, which is too bad because it's the only shot we had at George's birthplace.    Surely Clarissa is too old to be Ann's mother and even Gillis is a stretch.  George is a widower here, and Ann appears to be George's daughter, but if so, why is she not listed after him?  Where is Bethuel?  Is Gillis George's eldest son?  Why are Armon and George, both sons of James & Clarissa, listed last?
