This is correct. After many years of looking for Sarah, wife of John, I finally found the missing info, well documented in the land deeds of Woodbury, CT.
I have a copy of this deed somewhere in my records, and it clearly says that Joseph Hurlbut, gives land to his son John Baker. Obviously, son means son-in-law. The deed looked to be a wedding gift as it was dated within a year of John & Sarah's marriage about 1703.
Sarah was the daughter of Joseph Hurlbut and Rebecca Brown.
Hope this helps!
