Yeah, not difficult to see why you need proof, there are some sources with differing details. Barbour collection, Anc., and Family Search at least. Looking at the Barbour collection separately it says it is not complete; Anc. uses the Barbour Collection but it appears to have a bit more, for example see Nathaniel's birth.. Also available on https://www.familysearch.org/

Connecticut Town Birth Records, pre-1870 (Barbour Collection)
Nathaniel Johnson
Birth Date: 6 Mar 1726
Birth Place: Derby
Parent = Timothy & Abigail

You may have seen this, if not it may be useful.. HERE

Also this, 1694 bap. on Anc. [not birth, could still have been born 1693, so worth a thought] for a Timothy in Milford, not too far from the other places mentioned, especially Derby. Shame there is no first name for his father :(
Timothy Johnson
Father: Johnson
Baptism Date: 10 Jun 1694
Baptism Place: Milford, Connecticut, USA

There are other researchers/public trees that have Abigail's surname as Brewster, would need checking first.
