Hi, Chris -- I apologize for my long silence on this subject. I don't check this website very often. I would say if you are researching the Leighton family, you should invest in the two-volume "A Leighton Genealogy, Descendants of Thomas Leighton of Dover, New Hampshire." But yes, Benjamin was born circa 1735, Dover, NH to Capt. John Leighton and 2nd wife Sarah (first wife, Ruth) no maiden names for either as far as I know. Jane Webber was most likely the daughter of Gersham Webber and Marcy (Mercy) Young and was born about 1742 most likely in York Co., Maine. Benjamin and Jane were married at Freetown (Wiscasset) 30 Mar 1765. I am on Ancestry under the tree name "Messenger". Lots more info on the Leighton family there. I hope this helps.
