     Susannah Holcombe was born circa 1765 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.2 She was the daughter of Ezekiel Holcombe and Elizabeth Gillet. Susannah Holcombe married Joel Phelps Duplicate on 27 January 1782.

There are multiple Susannahs and Joels. The DAR records only add to the confusion. DAR record 57659 shows this line, but other DAR records contradict this one.

This is ONE possibility.

The Phelps book shows Frederick to be the father of a Joel who married a Susanah Holcomb. The McPherson book show a Susannah Holcombe who married a Joel Phelps, son of Lt. Ezekiel Phelps.

The birth date McPherson shows would have Susannah married at age 13. Carol Laun of the Salmon Brook Historical Society suggests the possibility that she was instead born at her mother's death 4 years earlier.

Joel Phelps served in the Revolutionary War and received a pension. After his death, Susannah applied for and also received a pension. She applied in 1843 and said she was in her 79th year, or 78 years old, which would make her birth year 1765. Joel could write his name, but Susannah signed with an X. 2
