Re: the question of who was the husband of Elizabeth Maynard....
Jane Robbins DAR paper was submitted by my aunt, her daughter in law. JaneWinch Robbins was my grandmother.. At the time the paper was submitted, the SAME question was asked by the Minn State DAR Registrar.
The reply from the Washington office of the DAR registrar was that every one knows that Jason Winch m. Abigail Howe, and that Samuel and Elizabeth Maynard were also legally married , and in addtion, the problem occured when the town clerk either made a duplicate list for the town historian, and it was incorrectly copied and subsequently printed all over the place for generations of error or that the town clerk actually did enter it on the original books in ERROR. You could write to the present town record keeper and ask, and Im sure all will be revealed to the great comfort of all. Maybe then the fog would clear.

Elizabeth married Samuel Winch, son of Thomas Winch and Elizabeth Drury, on 29 Jun 1780 in Fitzwilliam, N.H. 491.,492 (Samuel Winch was christened on 3 Feb 1760 in Framingham, Middlesex, MA 292,501.)
The source of "A Genealogical Register of Framingham Families" by J.H. Temple published 1887 by The Town of Framingham indicates that Elizabeth Maynard married Jason Winch 1774, the younger brother of Samuel Winch.. but I strongly suspect this source is in error as a reasonable looking IGI record exists which states that Jason Winch married Abigail How on Batch M506161 -1849, of LDS film 0928294

"The Hist. of Fitzwilliam" does indeed have info on all you mention.
However, since it is far too much for me to type out for you, I will be
glad to mail you copies free of charge.
I need just your mailing address and I will get copies of to you. In short, your sources confirm, according to the Hist. of Fitz., that
Elizabeth did marry Samuel, not Jason. There are several pages on the WINCHs and MAYNARDs in the book. Some of it may have come from the Framingham book as it is mentioned in the information.
Please quote this email in your response.
NOTE: the marriage record for Elizabeth Maynard to Samuel Sr. Winch at Fitzwilliam, Cheshire,MA.. LDS IGI film # 1761040 ..note the "Sr" title.. This is of course long before they have their own child Samuel (b. 1797) and indicates that this Samuel is the brother born in 1755 (not the brother Samuel born in 1760) both of the same parents of Thomas Winch and Elizabeth Drury) Why they would name two of their sons Samuel in a mystery but that does seem to be the case..
