We are trying to 'connect' this man. Our guess is he may have been the Grandson of Edward (1657) and his wife Elizabeth Phillips b.1664. They had 17 to 20 children and 8 sons some whom died young. There is a guess he may have been the son of a Jonathan b. 1703 and wife Mary Paul b.abt 1707. But we have no data to back anything. We have only one child listed for Jonathan and Mary..namely a son Moses Paul Payson b.May 9 1731. Any info on Samuel Phillips Payson would be most welcome.
