  • Notes 
    • Sometimes called Lydia Baldwin; often called Lydia Belden. Her gravestone says that she died in "the 60 year of her age". She is often said to be a daughter of John Belden (1658-1714) and Dorothy Willard, but of their two daughters named Lydia, the one who was born between 59 and 60 years before the death of our Lydia died three days short of her third birthday, in 1693. Their second daughter named Lydia was born 30 Nov 1694 and would therefore have been just short of 55 when our Lydia died on 7 Nov 1749. Our conclusion is that we don't actually know who this Lydia's parents were. They may even have been named Baldwin after all.
