  • Notes 

    • The birth of Dr. Solomon Wyman seems not to have been recorded with
      any Town Clerk, but his lineage can be determined with highprobability by using strong circumstantial evidence. Solomon claimedto have been born in CT in about 1766 (see 1850 Federal Censushousehold of Lucius Wyman, and elsewhere). The only male Wyman ofsuitable breeding age who lived in CT at any time during the years1766 to 1790, (based on the1790 Census, the Barbour Collection andother extensive searches, and excluding Ebenezer Wyman who married in1771 and was only 18 in 1766, and excluding John Wyman from Charlton,MA whose wife had twin boys in Sept. 1765 and another in Oct. 1767 andshe died in Charlton in 1788 ) was Solomon Wyman (b. 1734) of Woburn,MA and Wrentham, MA. Solomon (b. 1734) probably didn't move toHartford, CT until after his wife died in Wrentham, MA in 1770. Thiswould mean that Dr. Solomon (b. 1766) probably moved to CT from MAwhile very young (probably under 5 years old), and likely would nothave been aware that he had ever lived in MA. Solomon (b. 1734)appears in the 1790 Federal Census for Hartford, CT. He was verylikely living in CT in 1777 when his son, Stephen, enlisted in theRevolutionary War effort, as a CT resident. Solomon (b, 1734) namedhis first son after his brother, Stephen. His next child (excludingone born outside the family) was a girl named after his wife, Jerusha.It would be appropriate to name his next son after himself. This iswhat appears to have happened in 1766. It is a reasonable conclusionwith no known competing hypotheses.
