Comments about Accuracy: To the best of our knowledge, all parent-child relationships are correct. Some spellings are questionable, as are some dates. We expect to list source citations in future updates. (The date of the most recent update is displayed at the bottom of each page.)

Family history is more than a collection of names, dates and places, but those do provide a base on which to build. We have more information on some of these family members, which we will be glad to share, and we would enjoy learning more. We welcome additions, corrections, questions, and suggestions.

*A “Register Report” (named for the New England Historical and Genealogical Register) contains a narrative paragraph for each person, beginning with the source couple and including all their descendants through a specific number of generations. A standard numbering system is used:

Each descendant is assigned a unique number, beginning with 1 for the source person. Children within each family are listed with lowercase Roman numerals i, ii, iii, iv, etc. Those who became parents themselves also carry a unique lowercase Roman numeral continuing in sequence 2, 3, 4, etc, The report is separated into generations as First Generation, Second Generation, etc.
