Stiles has note on Stephen Burnham “prob. of East Hartford” (Chas,Rich,Thos1)
Stephen married Elizabeth Cole and had child bp. 2/24/1782. This would
contradict Stiles statement that all but one (Esther) of Richard’s children died
young. Families of Early Hartford, lists a “Jupiter Burnham” as son of Richard,
but notes that as birth date is the same, it “could be Charles”. It could be a
twin?
