Can anyone help clear up my confusion? I am researching Laban Stodder b. Jul 16 1744, son of Hezekiah Stodder and Abigail Whiton. I have found Laban's wife listed as Persis Wilder (m. 1768) with the following children:
Hannah b. 1778, Laban b. 1770, Persis b. 1773, Lois b. 1774, Bela b. 1778, Anna b. 1781, and Hezekiah b. 1784.

Then I find others listing his wife as Celia Sprague (m. 1795) with the following children:
Richmond b. 1778, Marshall b. 1780, Henry b. 1783, Bartlett b. 1784, Obadiah b. 1787, Gridley b. 1788, Nehemiah b. 1790, Hosea b. 1790, Judith b. 1791, Lydia b. 1793, Abigail b. 1794, and Mary b. 1796.

As you can see, the birth dates of the two groups of children conflict, and most of the dates of Celia and Laban's children predate the marriage date given for them.

Does anyone have information to set me straight? Thanks.
