    Family 1 Randall, Philura,   d. 29 Apr 1648, Windsor, Connecticut Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Married By 1638  [6
    • Their eldest known child was b. 1638. Place of their marriage is unclear. Windsor record p. 56 says George Phelps married Phillup Randalls daughter but no date is given. This entry implies they were married in Windsor. However, the Windsor record (p. 10) also says that George Phelps wife was a member of the church in Dorchester implying they were married at that time. [5]
    Notes 
    • Phelps and Servin say there was an additional child Abigail, d. 1639, but Anderson says that Abigayl Phelps died in the latter part of 1648, her name was not associated with any Phelps male, and it is impossible to know whose daughter or wife she may have been. [1, 7]

      Place of their marriage is unclear. Matthew Grant record says George Phelps married Phillup Randalls daughter (p.56) but no date is given. This seems to imply they were married in Windsor. However, the Grant record (p. 10) also says that George Phelps wife was a member of the church in Dorchester implying they were married at that time.
