      1. The following will transcription for Nathaniel Bearding in 1674 is from various Worldconnect databases as of 21 Sep 2007. It mentions this Samuel and Elizabeth (Spencer). Note that this will links Samuel as a son to Nathaniel's second wife as follows: "I Nathaniel Berding of Hartford upon the River of Connecticut, planter doe in this my last will and testament give unto Abigaill my wife the sum of twenty pounds to be paid her in such pay as may bee comfortable for her not in any horse flesh; I doe also give to Abigaill my wife three cows both which gifts for her to possess and fivety shillings in peas fivety shillings in Indian corne and fivety shillings in pork all at the countey price; my will is also that Abigaill my wife shall have the two ould lower romes and the celler and the leanto for her to dwell in or dispose of all these during the time of her life; I do also give to my son-in-law Thomas Spencer the elder the sum of fivetene pounds to bee paid to him within the space of twoe years after my disease; I doe also give to Samuel Andrews and Elizabeth his wife the sum of fourty pounds to be paid him after the decease of my wife his mother; my parcel of land at Potunck and my household stuff to be to his for partt of that legacy; I doe also give to Sarah Spencer and to Hannah Spencer and to Mary Spencer and to Martha Spencer the fouer daughters of Thomas Spencer the elder the sum of tenn pounds to be equally devided amongst them that is to eather of them fivety shillings to be paid to them after my wife's decease.

[Kerry's note: date of 2nd marriage is evidently wrong considering William died in 1659. Additionally, Nathaniel Bearding notes Abigail as being the mother of Samuel Andrews in his will which would make a marriage between William Andrews and Abigail more likely before 1645 unless Nathaniel was speaking of Abigail in a generic sense without specifying whether she was the natural mother or stepmother.] Children:

      [Kerry's note: we can assume that George Graves was the brother-in-law to William making Abigail's maiden name Graves.]

      4. The following partial excerpts about the wives and children of Thomas Spencer are from "The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633," Volumes I-III (see notes of Thomas Spencer for full transcript):
      "...Elizabeth, bp. 26 March 1648 [HaVR 579]; m. by about 1668 Samuel Andrews, son of William Andrews [TAG 35:55-59]..."

      5. "The American Genealogist," Vol. 27 "The Four Spencer Brothers: Their Ancestors and Descendants," compiled by Donald Lines Jacobus, M. A., pp. 162-63:
      "Elizabeth [Spencer], bp. 26 Mar. 1648; m. Samuel Andrews, bp. at Hartford, 21 Oct. 1645, d. there Jan. 1711/12, son of William and Elizabeth."

      "The Families Immediately Related to Thomas1 and Thomas2 in Hartford.
      Because a rather complex relationship existed among the immediate relatives of Thomas1 in Hartford, the present authors have prepared a separate article (1995) on the interrelationships of Thomas1 and Thomas2 to the Andrews, Graves, and Bearding families. A brief summary is presented in the following notes along with the accompanying chart.
      Linkages among the Andrews, Graves, Bearding and Spencer Families in Hartford [KP note: reformatted for my transcription]:
      William1 Andrews (-1659)
      m.(l) Mary Britton. Children by Wife#1:
      -John2 (ca.1632-1690)
      -Abigail2 (1634-1653)
      -Elizabeth2 (1636-)
      -Thomas2 (1638-)
      m.(2) Abigail Graves (-1683). [Abigail marries Nathaniel1 Bearding as his second wife.] children by Wife #2:
      -Esther2 (1641-1698) [Esther marries Thomas2 Spencer.]
      -Samuel2 (1645-1712)
      Thomas1 Spencer (1607-1689)
      m.(1) Ann Derifall (1610-1645). Children by Wife #1:
      -Obadiah 2 (c.1639-1712)
      -Thomas 2 (1641-1689) [Thomas marries Esther2 Andrews.]
      -Samuel 2 (1643-1727)
      m. (2) Sarah Bearding (-1674). [Sarah is child from Nathaniel1 Bearding's first wife.] children by Wife #2:
      -Sarah2 (ca1646-1712)
      -Elizabeth2 (1648)
      -Gerard2 (1651-1712)
      -Hannah2 (1653-1713)
      -Mary 2 (1655-1690)
      -Martha2 (1658-1704)
      Nathaniel1 Bearding (-1674)
      m. (1) ___. Children by Wife #1:
      -Sarah2 Bearding [Becomes 2nd wife of Thomas1 Spencer]
      m. (2)Abigail (Graves) Andrews (-1683) [Abigail marries William1 Andrews as his second wife.]
      The first list on the left shows the children descended from William1 Andrews, while the list on the right shows the one child (Sarah) of Nathaniel1 Bearding. Sandwiched between these two lists are the descendants of Thomas1 Spencer and his two wives, Ann Derifall and Sarah Bearding. Connecting lines indicate the intermarriages.
      Abigail (Graves) Andrews (d. 1683) was the second wife of William1 Andrews of Hartford and the mother of Esther Andrews (1641-1698) who married Thomas2 Spencer (later of Suffield). Esther Andrews had a brother, Samuel Andrews (1645-1712), who married Elizabeth2 Spencer, a half sister to Thomas2 Spencer.
      In later life, Abigail. (Graves) Andrews married Nathaniel Bearding as his second wife. Earlier, Nathaniel Bearding had a daughter Sarah who became the second wife of Sgt. Thomas1 Spencer.
      All of the above is totally unintelligible unless the reader makes a careful study of the chart."
