Noah Webster and Katherine Newcomb

Noah Webster was born 9 Aug 1706 at Lebanon CT and died 20 Sep 1762 at Mansfield CT. He married Katherine Newcomb, daughter of Deacon John and Alice (Lombard) Newcomb. Katherine was born 21 May 1710, and died sometime before Oct 1755. J.B. Newcomb's genealogy indicated that Noah and Katherine had 12 children. However, the last child, Noah, was actually the child of the second wife, Elizabeth Jones, who apparently was not known to J.B. Newcomb. Noah Webster married Elizabeth Jones 2 Oct 1755 a Somers CT. At this time I do not have any further information on Elizabeth.
