John DAY, of Hartford, son of Robert a brother of Thomas, (I) m. Sarah MAYNARD2 of Hartford, and died probably in 1730. His will was proved May 5, 1730.

2. Note I do not know where the notion comes from that John married Sarah MAYNARD, except for the fact that he named one of his children Maynard but this can be explained from the fact that his mother had married Deacon John MAYNARD as her second husband, and he named this child after him. Also the will of Thomas BUTLER lists John as one of his heirs. as he is married to his daughter Sarah BUTLER.
