Hello Fred,

I'm not sure this is of any help:

PARKS, ROBERT, New London, son of Thomas the first, married 24 Nov. 1681, Rachel, eldest daughter of Thomas Leffingwell, had Rebecca, born 7 Sept. following; James, 1684; and eight more children and died before Sept. 1707.

SAMUEL, Stonington, son of Robert, had Robert, William, and probably other children.

THOMAS, Wethersfield, son of Robert, born in England, by wife Dorothy, had Martha, born 1646; Thomas, 1648; removed to Stonington, thence to New London, had Robert, Nathaniel, William, Dorothy, Alice, and John, of
whose dates of birth we are ignorant. Provided for wife, Dorothy, for children John, Nathaniel, William, Martha, Dorothy, and Alice, for grandson Samuel, son of
Thomas, and James, son of Robert, he made his will 5 Sept. 1707, and died 30 July 1709. He was of the new town of Preston 1686, and first deac. of the church there gathering 1698. His daughter, Martha, married 16 Jan. 1668, Isaac Wheeler of Stonington; Dorothy married Apr. 1670, Joseph Morgan; and Alice married Mar. 16, 1673, Greenfield Larrabee.

died 28 Aug. 1681.

* WILLIAM, Roxbury, eldest son of Robert, came in
the Lion, arriving at Boston, Feb. 1631, with Roger Williams, was, perhaps, sent by his father to look out good spot for plantation, one of the earliest memb.

Johnson, in his "Wonderwork. Providence" &c. calls him "a man of a pregnant understanding," and he knew well, for he sat 21 yrs. with him. He was many yrs. deacon and died 11 May 1685; having made his will 20 July preceding with codicil of 4 Apr. in which he provides for the wife of
his youth, mentioned two surviving daughters and many grandchildren, besides brthers Thomas, deceased and Samuel. But grave stone in Geneal. Reg. makes the death 10 May 1683. The widow, Martha, died 25 Aug. 1708, aged 94, Theoda married 2 Mar. 1654, Samuel Williams, and so was mother of Rev. John, H.

been graduated at Harv. in 1834 and thirteen at other New England colleges.
