    Gender Female 
    Notes 
    • Other genealogies state that Paul Phelps Jr. married Zerviah Calkins, b. 1735, the daughter of John Calkins and Sarah. If this were true, Zerviah would have been 51 when she bore her last child Paul. Such a late birth is very unlikely, and I have concluded that Zerviah Calkins, b. 1748, the daughter of Solomon Calkins and Zerviah Dewey probably married Paul Phelps, Jr.

    Notes 
    • There are three errors in the description of Paul's family in Phelps Family of America by Oliver Phelps and Andrew Servin: 1. Zerviah's parents were Solomon Calkins and Zerviah Dewey not John Calkins and Sarah Huntington. 2. Phelps and Servin incorrectly state that Zerviah died in 1776 and that Paul then married Theodosia Root. 3. As a result, Phelps and Servin list the last four children (John, Solomon, Jedediah and Paul 3rd) as the Theodosia's children, but they were actually Zerviah's children as shown by Dimock's transcription of the records of the Town of Mansfield and the Second Church of Mansfeld, and by an image of a page from Willington Town records for the births of Jedediah and Paul 3rd. (See image of document below.)
