Dear John,
Not unless She were baptized within a few days of her actual
bierthdate. Many People remember, were baptized as adults or as part of a
group of children. Ihave an ancestress who was baptized only a few days after her
birth who had a sister born elsewhere who was more than 3 years old at her
baptism in thre same church (Dorchester, MA ) Two Baptisms of a Child 8 days
apart seems odd, however. Did Mary (Giffard) Squire bear twins a few days apart
and the elder son die , then baptize the younger with the same name?
