3.04.01 Alternative Version of John Brownson, Jr. (1602-1680) and the Fourth Generation

Harriet Bronson Sibley in Bronson Lineage, 1636-1917 (Dallas, OR: Self-published, 1917), p. 8, offers a version of the fourth generation that overlaps with but also differs from the Ray and Jean Brunson version. In Sibley’s version, no wife is listed. She says that “John Bronson of Farmington” fathered seven children. They were:
Jacob Bronson (1641-1708) married Mary.
John Bronson, Jr. of Waterbury (1644-1696). He married Sarah Ventris (d. 1711). They were original subscribers of Waterbury in 1674 (north side of West Main St.). They had seven children. These were:
