      VII. Timothy, b. 29 May 1745, m. Sarah Skinner.
      VIII. James, b. 29 May 1745. (Note - This James is given by Dr. C.A. Phelp's tree, and also in Stiles' old, though not in 2nd edition. We think this an error.)"

      2. Previous researchers have listed Timothy and James as twins. The following Website 4 Sep 2007 www.douglaslibrary.org/barbour. The Douglas Library in Hebron, Connecticut has "Town of Hebron Vital Records: Barbour Collection 1708-1854," p. 10, shows a birth for Timothy, b. 29 May 1745, but none for James.

      3. The book "The Phelps Family of America and their English Ancestors," comp. by Oliver Seymour Phelps of Portland, Oregon and Andrew T. Servin of Lenox, Massachusetts, 1899, p. 221:

      4. Henry R. Stiles, "The History and Genealogies of Ancient Windsor, Connecticut," 1892, v. 2, p. 571: "Charles Phelps (son of Timothy, g.son of Lt.
