The only ref. I can find is "CUTTER" says that John Deming who married Honor
Treat and who married Elizabeth who married Nathaniel Foote were brother and
sister. I can find nothing on their parents.
NEHGR Vol CXLV Oct 1991 page 339 on the wife of John Edwards b. 30 May 1679
at Wethersfield "m. there 15 May 1707 Lucy Deming, b. 16 Feb 1674 (or
1676)... She was the daughter of Jonathan2 Deming (John1) by his second wife
Elizabeth Gilbert, and half-sister to Comfort (Deming) Beckley...".
On page 400 CUTTER has the families of Jonathan Deming. By his first wife
Sarah Graves m. 21 Nov 1660 and his second Elizabeth Gilbert, daughter of
Josiah and Elizabeth, m. 25 Dec 1672.
As far as I can tell someone, because there are lots of Johns and Jonathans
in the extended families, speculated that Elizabeth and John's father might
be a John or Jonathan. From there someone found a Jonathan in France who
may/might/could/perhaps have been a father and then someone made a mistake
and made Jonathan his grandfather.
Genealogy needs a "SPELL CHECK" for genealogists. Someone's stupid mistake
is causing time to be wasted and preventing real progress from being made.

> Thanks for the letter. I am aware of errors in that line. Unfortunately, I
have not gotten around to researching that particular branch so I can not
disprove it. What information I have, I copied from's
Ancestral File. I realize this file has many errors, but at least it is a
place to start. I would be interested if anyone has proven this line.

Jonathan, who's second wife was Elizabeth Gilbert, daughter of Josiah and

Elizabeth Deming (the settlers) is someone's mistake that has made it into a
Family Tree file and is now all over the internet."
