      26 Captain Samuel St. John ... b. in Norwalk, in 168-
      Based on mother's date of birth, I gave him the birth year of 1685 making the mother 18 years old. This would mean he was born 1685(+/- 4). Since he was oldest son, he was probably born between 1685-1689 rather than between 1680-1684.
