[quote]Thomas Bassett who married Sarah Baldwin as the son of one of the sons of Thomas Bassett who married Johanna. Johanna ______ Beardsley was married previously and her maiden name has been lost.[/quote]

This may not help, but I have Thomas Jr. who married Sarah Baldwin as the son (not the grandson) of Thomas Sr. who married Johanna_______Beardsley. This makes sense since Thomas Sr. was 36 years older than his wife, and there's a about a 60 year age difference between Thomas Sr. and Thomas Jr. That would have made Jr.'s mother approx. 24 years old at his birth.

It could be in error, but the source is the Ackley-Bosworth Genealogy book here at Ancestry. It's part of the ancestry of Isaac Lacey, in the section titled Edward Lacey, page 222a.
It notes the following sources:

*Families of Old Fairfield (Jacobus) 1:371-2, 2:568-9
*Fairfield Deeds, 4:125, 8:83, 10:291, 365
*Samuel Orcutt, History of New Milford (1881), 722
*Conn. Hist. Society Collections, 9:226
*Commorative Biographical Record of Northeastern Pennsylvania (1900)
*Bible of Isaac Lacey, in possession of L. F. Camp, Tunkhannock, PA, 1929.
