      The Barbour Collection of vital records has Violet's marriage as 24 Nov 1792. However, her marriage is mentioned in a letter written 5 Sep 1792 by her father "...I would let you no that your sister violity was maried Last November to John Bates and now lives in Cornewil ..." This shows that the marriage was in November of 1791. The image of the page containing the marriage record says:
      "Joined in Marriage on the 4th day of March A. D. 1792
      said Hitchcock belongs to Lebanon in the State of New York
      and Linda to Cornwall in Litchfield County ..
      Married, certified and recorded Jr. Judah Kellogg Justice of Peace
      and Town Clerk. Warren, March 29th 1792.
      This may certify that Mr. Isaac Bates and Mrs. Leah
      onil Dean were joined[crossed out] this Day joined in Marriage
      By me Peter Starr, Minister of the Gospel.
      Warren March 29th 1792.
      This may Certify that Mr. John Bates of Cornwall and Mrs.
      Vestilly Sacket of Warren were joined in Marriage.
      November 24th, 1792.
      By me Peter Starr Minister of the Gospel.
      The said forgoing Marriages were recorded May 1st 1792
      Judah Kellogg Town Clerk.
      Darius Miner of Salisbury and Armaril Sanders of Cornwall were
      lawfully joined in Marriage on the 27th day of September A.D. 1792 by
      me Judah Kellogg Justice of Peace who certifys the Same
      Recorded by Judah Kellogg Town Clerk. Oct 15th 1792."

      It will be noted that although the date given for Violet's marriage is November 24th, 1792 it is in a list of marriages recorded by Juday Kellogg, Town Clerk on May 1st 1792. This indicates that Judah Kellogg inadvertently written 1792 instead of 1791 when he recorded the marriage in the town records. - [T. King]
