Note that Dexter's younger brother will also marry Zilpah's younger sister and also pursue a vocation in the ministry.
Zilpah and her sister Betsey were children of Barnabas Maynard (1747-1828) and Mary White (d 1814) who also resided in Berlin, MA.
This is further evidence by the use of names Maynard and White as middle names for several of their children.
