Grace was born in Taugwonk, now Stonington, New London Co., CT. She died sometime after her last child-Wait Palmer- was born May 27, 1711.
On Jan 10, 1701 /02, Grace married William Palmer, son of Gershom Palmer born Jun 16, 1644 and Ann Denison born May 2, 1649, daughter of George Denison and Ann Borodel.
Grace Minor born 1683 was a granddaughter of the Grace Palmer born 1608, who married Lieut.Thomas Minor.
Lieut. Thomas Minor has 2 memorial pages-
1) Lieut Thomas Minor cenotaph with bio info and
2) Lieut Thomas Minor at cemetery with their children listed.
Grace Palmer-Minor 1608 was the dau. of Walter Palmer & his first wife of unknown name (not Rebecca Short). Note: There is no proof at all that Walter's Unknown wife is Anne Eliz. Horne who has a memorial page connected to Walter.
So, Grace Minor 1683, the great-granddaughter of Walter Palmer and his first wife, married William Palmer born 1678 who was the grandson of Walter Palmer & his 2nd wife Rebecca Short, and the son of Gershom Palmer (the son of Walter & Rebecca).
So, Grace born 1683 was her husband William's half-first cousin once removed.
Grace and William lived in Taugwonk, (now Stonington), and then Puckhunganuck, which later became the Pendleton Hill area of North Stonington, New London Co., CT.
