"It was there among the receipts that my niece, Carolyn Buss, found the first, so far, only documentation thet the maiden name of Hannah, wife of Elkanah Hewitt, of Stonington, New London County, CT, my 4th great-grandmother, was Sterry, daughter of Samuel Sterry and Hannah Rose, granddaughter of Roger Sterry. We had been searching for this information for more than sixty years but had found nothing. The Stonington Town Records (LDS FHL#1309872) gives the births of nine children, Elkanah, Thankful, Sarah, Henry, Arthur, Silas, Tabitha, Jonas, and Simeon, as does Barbour (Vital Records for Ct, Stonington, (LDS FHL#0002980) but neither names a mother. Wheeler, (History of the Town of Stonington, County of New London, Connecticut) (LDS FHL#0847758) calls her Temperance Kenney (p. 419), and Temperance Keeney, (p. 421), says, "married 1722," and names only eight children, leaving out Silas.".
