I was searching for information on Diodate Pratt Rogers (b:1801 in Conn.), son of Ezra Rogers and Betsey Beckwith, when I came upon your posting from 2006. I found it very interesting because I cannot understand for the life of me where the name "Diodate Pratt" came from and why Ezra and Betsey would give their first born child such a name!
And then I thought he was named after the Justice of the Peace who married them. Any ideas? I can find no official records of Diodate's birth or Becky & Ezra's marriage.
Thanks for any ideas you can give me,
Paul Roger Camping
