Elizabeth married Christopher CRARY, son of Robert CRARY and Elizabeth, on 7 Mar 1737 in Voluntown, New London County, Connecticut. (Christopher CRARY was born about 1713 in Groton, New London, Connecticut and died on 6 Jun 1790 in Wallingford, Rutland County, Vermont.)

And perhaps other children.

Surety: 4. (III) Christopher, son of Robert Crary, was born in 1713, died in 1790. He married Elizabeth Robbins, born 1719, died 1796.
. I suspect that Cutter is mistaken in his belief that Daniel married Dorothy Morgan Witter, the widow of Deacon Ebenezer Witter. Although Cutter's assumption may be correct, evidence appears to suggest that the marriage was actually between Daniel and Ebenezer Witter and Dorothy Morgan Witter's daughter, Dorothy:

1. Dorothy Morgan Witter is buried beside Ebenezer Witter at Avery Cemetery (in Ledyard) as "Mrs. Dorothy Witter," not as Dorothy Witter Brewster. No mention of a second husband is made in her epitaph.

2. A burial record exists at Brewster's Neck Cemetery (in Preston) for Dorothy Witter Brewster, whose birthdate exactly matches that of Ebenezer and Dorothy's daughter.

More research is needed to confirm or disprove my hypothesis.
