Greenlaw: “The Town Clerk of Rehoboth…informs me that the marriage of Anna Bullock…4 September, 1738, was to Joseph Morton and not to Joseph Martin as printed by Arnold in his volume of Rehoboth records.

HAZEN/DART/DOUGLASS/TURNER/KEENEY/BREWSTER- In the HAZEN/DART/ TURNER correction in the April 1989 NEXUS (p. 71) several lines were omitted from the first sentence, which should read, in two sentences, as follows: The Hazen Family in America. by Tracy Elliott Hazen and Robert Hazen (1947), gives the following information: #15. John Hazen m. (2) at New London, Connecticut, 31 May 1726 (church records) Elizabeth Dart, born there 14 Oct. 1689, dau. of Daniel and Elizabeth (Douglass) Dart. This identification of John HAZEN’s second wife is erroneous. She was Elizabeth (TURNER) DART, wid. of Thomas DART, daughter of Ezekiel and Susannah (KEENEY) TURNER, and a descendant of William BREWSTER of the Mayflower.
A likely editing error produced a second mistake in this section as well. The correct facts are that Elizabeth Turner married in New London 8 May 1717 Thomas Dart, and had one child, a daughter Elizabeth. Thomas Dart was lost at sea about 1718.
