Lydia Bassett and John Newcomb

Lydia Bassett was born 20 Sept. 1757. She married John Newcomb (10 May 1749 - 4 Sep 1830) on 20 June 1877. They had 10 children. John was the son of Benjamin and Mary (Everett) Newcomb. According to the old Newcomb genealogy, Lydia's parents were James and Lydia Bassett. However, Jeffrey Bassett recently contacted me with the information that Lydia's parents were William and Lydia (Fisher) Basset. Some research into Massachusetts town records supports this information, and I am making the change in my database.
