Children Of William (1) Backus
Old houses of the antient [sic] town of Norwich, 1660-1800, by Perkins, Mary E. (Mary Elizabeth),
This record stated that William Backus (1) was married to Sarah Charles. This source indicates otherwise: "Older accounts incorrectly show his first wife to have been Sarah Charles; but the probate records demonstrate clearly that Sarah Charles was the first wife of his son William, Jr., not of the senior William."
I am a descendant of two of William's (1) children; Stephen, who married Sarah Spencer and Sarah, who married John Reynolds.
