    Early Lempster Families
    This posting is for someone who is not yet online, but she asked me to "put her on the Internet." She is compiling a book on "Early Lempster Families" and wants to know what happened to all who resided in Lempster from incorporation (1767) through the 1850 census. She's been working on this book for 10 years, so she's a wonderful resource. If you can contribute to her research, please write to Jessica W. Stevens 1053 Serpentine Dr. S. St. Petersburg, FL 33705

  • George Niels Sørensen -- Wed, 03 Sep 1997 SAMPSON
    West Waterman Sampson b. 1771 in West Brookfield, MA m. Mary Fowler of NH. They lived in NH and had 6 children, two of whom I think are Newland b. about 1796 and Warner. West, it seems, returned to MA and died leaving the family in NH.
    1800 census shows them in Cheshire Co, which Washinton was part of at the time. The surname index indicates that both the Fowler and Sampson names are in the Washington, NH town history book.
    Do you or does someone have access to this book and could they tell me if it has info on the Sampson - Fowler families? Is there another source for this information. Thanks much for your help. George Sorensen in California

Daniel was born abt 1779, probably Londonderry, NH, son of Samuel CLARK and Janet BARNETT and grandson of Robert CLARK and Letitia COCHRAN, who came from Londonderry NI, to Londonderry NH, about 1725. Daniel and Betsy married March 5, 1799, New Boston, Hillsboro Co.

What happened in NH in this time period that caused the family to leave? Thank you for any help! Gail Brown gailwbrown@bigfoot.com
