    BARNEY, Emma born Washington, NH, Sullivan County I would like a birth certificate the years of birth most likely would have been from 1850-1900. If any pertinent information exists on her parents I would appreciate acknowledgement.
    DENSMORE, Charles and was born in Charlestown, NH also in Sullivan, County (and was age 49 in 1907 which would put the birth year around 1856). If a birth certificate exists for him I would very much like to see it or have a copy of it and if any pertinent information on his parents.
    Together these two had a son: DENSMORE, Roy born in Unity (also in Sullivan, County) his birthdate was Dec. 5, 1885. I have not been able to locate his birth certificate and would appreciate a copy of the document in my family tree.

    My great grandfather, Frederick Gagne', a native of Stanbridge, Missisquoi, PQ; was prvented from entering the US in 1913 because he had been stricken with a paralysis of his legs. On his entry petition, he indicated he was going to stay with a son-in-law, Will Blay (Blais) of Acworth, Sullivan county. The 1920 US Census lists a William F Blay living in Claremont, with a wife, rose and a son Archie. Is any of that family still in the Acworth- Claremont area? Is there any record of Frederick living in Sullivan County around 1870 ; or between 1898 and 1910? He indicated that he had resided in the US for some 12 years prior to 1911. He also had two children born about 1870 in the US. It appears that he was a regular transient into the US prior to his paralysis. Any help would be most greatfully received. I have tried to trace Frederick's family for years with only a minimum of success.

    Am seeking the family background of a Martha ("Patty") BRUCE whose intention to marry Timothy FISHER was filed in Croydon in 1775. The family was taxed in Croydon until 1783, and then were located in the Hartland/Woodstock area of Windsor Co. VT. Prior to living in Croydon, Timothy Fisher had been in Ashburnham and Stoughton MA. So far the only Bruce connection I've found in this time period near Croydon is the family of Thomas and Martha (Bruce) Barney of Washington NH. Thanks for any leads, John Leidy Thanks for posting this item for me!! JL

    Jabez Cary (My GGGGGGrandfather), born 1727 Windham County, CT. and some sons with their families lived in Plainfield area after the Revolutionary War. Jabez and his first son, Jabez III, actually fought in the war (Jabez III is buried in Marcy NY with other brothers).
    My GGGGGrandfather is (William) Bela Cary, the second Son. He was born in Dec 1762 in CT. My GGGGrandfather, John, his first and only child by the first wife, was born in 1788 (Either CT or NH). Bela did move to Oneida County with his brothers and their families (and Mom) in 1794 (Father Jabez Jr had died 1794), remarried in 1794/5 and fathered most of the Cary's in Oneida County for the 19th century.
    I've never found Jabez Jr's grave (Plainfield?); I've never found the name or grave of Bela's first wife (died at or shortly after childbirth 1788?). John's first child (a girl) he named Susan. There had never been a Susan in the family! His second child (a son0 was named Bela (guess why?). Anyway, if either cemetary, church, land or other records show a Cary contingent between say, 1784-1794, could you let me know? Thanks, Tim Cary

    Daniel CLARK (b. abt 1775 Londonderry, Rockingham Co., NH, s.o. Samuel CLARK and Sarah HOLMES) m. Betsey Boyd PATTERSON (b. abt 1775 New Boston, Hillsboro Co., NH, d.o. Robert PATTERSON and Betsy FURGASON) 5 Mar, 1799, New Boston, Hillsboro Co., NH. They lived there until 1815 and had 8 children - Betsey, David, Jane, Sarah, William, Robert, Nancy, Bradford. Daniel is listed as Capt., 1811-1815, in New Boston town records. Although the family later went to Welland Co., Ontario, Canada, I believe that they lived in Claremont, Sullivan Co., NH, after 1815. Daniel's younger brother Moses and his wife Fanny PATTERSON (Betsey's sister), and their family lived in Claremont at least through 1850. Daniel was probably a carpenter, and at least 3 of his sons became millwrights. If anyone knows this family, please contact me - I would love to share information. What was going on in NH that may have caused the family to move?

  • Date: Thu, 14 May 1998 22:01:31 +0100 From: Corban Goble
    I have some roots in Keene, Rindge and Alstead, plus connections in Charlestown and Acworth. My great-grandfather was Benjamin D. Dwinnell of Charlestown, and before that Francis, Michael and Bartholomew Dwinnel of Keene. Francis's mother was Lydia Towne of Rindge, and her father was Francis Towne. Francis Dwinnel and his wife, Nancy Tarbell, were married in Alstead but then later lived in Charlestown before they died in the 1840s. I'm still looking for documentation of Nancy's parents, as well as documentation about what happened to Michael & Lydia after about 1809 in Keene. But Francis had several sisters (births recorded at Keene in the early 1800s), and I'm trying to flesh out the families of a couple of them, at least to begin with. One is Mary (Polly), who married Loring Morse of Fitzwilliam--and they lived until the 1880s at Acworth. (They're in the Alstead history.) The other is Harriet, who married Jonathan Sawyer of Alstead. Much of this family is in Eleanor G. Sawyer's book, "Sawyer Families of New England." I have used records I have had access to, including census rolls, and have prepared a layout of the Morse family (so far) and am working one for the Sawyers. One of the Morse sons lived in Keene, but the rest of the family were in Sullivan County or elsewhere. The Sawyer folks most lived in Cheshire, at least in the early years. I'm still working on that chart, but could send one showing the Morses to your postal address, if you wish. Brad Bascom--and I looked at his home page--has helped in provding Morse information several years ago, and I'm sending him one of my updated Morse charts Corban Goble, Bowling Green, KY.

    I have been trying to locate the parents of Leonard Hart, b. 28 Dec 1799 in Huntington (I assume VT). It recently came to my attention that a Mr. Stephen Eastman of Croydon, NH had been appointed guardian of Leonard on 9 May 1816, legally referred to as case # 264, and recorded in Keene, NH. Have long suspected Leonard's parents died or disappeared, as family records indicate he did not know where they originated. Please advise. Thanks Tom

    When my Grandfather Fred Hudson passed away in the 50's in his obituary it stated that he was survived by a daughter Margarite Fairbanks of Claremont, N.H. As far as I know my father Bert W. Hudson was an only child of Fred and Kate Hudson (Sherman). I do not know if my Grandfather was married before or ?? or if he might have originated from the N.H area. I am sure this lady has long ago passed away but she is a link to my genealogy I am sure and I am very curious. Is it possible that any information could be gotten about this lady. I do not know if her maiden name was Hudson for sure but presume so. I am also interested in anything from the area on my Grandfather Fred or Frederick Hudson. I know that he was retired from the railroad somewhere, came west from Minn. at some time with my Grandmother (Kate), worked as a prison guard, Yuma Territorial Prison, owned horse ranch in AZ. and a farm outside of Spokane WA. where he passed away. Being that Mrs. Fairbanks was from Claremont and there is also a town of Hudson N.H. I am sure my roots came from that area. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. I live in Vancouver, WA. Gary J. Hudson. Thk. You!!

  • Date: Mon, 02 Mar 1998 11:27:16 -0800 From: "John T. Foster"
    GEORGE FOSTER was conspicuous in first years of 1800's in HANOVER, N.H. and reportedly was buried there around 1806. He was a carpenter and built the home of Dr. Nathan Smith on what now is the Dartmouth green. What his ORIGIN was is a mystery, because he does not appear in any of the classical FOSTER anthologies. I have record of all his descendants including connections to famous Shepley'sof college and state history. His first son was "John May Foster" who became Boston leathermaker. This suggests that "May" may have been wife's family name (a pattern in later generations at least). John Foster

  • Date: Wed, 13 May 1998 01:29:57 -0400 From: "David G. White"
    I am looking for the parents of Otis H. Knight who married Sally Howe. Or at least some lead on where he came from. I know he lived for at least three years (1825-1827) in Washington, NH and that he was born somewhere in NH, but I don't know where. I was in Boston last weekend and spent two hours in the library of the New England Historic and Genealogical Society where I found some new leads. However, I ran out of time before I could pursue them thoroughly. I hope you can help. According to information from an old Knight family (my wife's family) bible: 1) Otis H. Knight was born Dec. 26, 1800; 2) he married Sally Howe on Nov. 29, 1827; 3) Sally Howe was born March 15, 1797. Originally that's all we knew. No locations were given.
    Later, I discovered in "The History of North Brookfield (Mass.)" by Temple, J. H. and Adams, Charles, (Published by the Town of North Brookfield, 1887), that the children of Otis and Sally were all born in Cambridge, Vermont. Their children were: Orvilla Knight (that is correct Orvilla, not Orville, but he is male!), b. Feb. 3 or 4, 1831; Edmund Curtis Knight, b. March 18, 1835; and Abbie C. Knight born April 3, 1839. Orvilla and Edmund settled in North Brookfield, Mass. and died there. Unfortunately, when I searched the town records of Cambridge, VT I found no birth records for these three children. In fact, the only town record I found which indicated Otis and Sally were in Cambridge at all was a death certificate for their daughter Abbie in 1861 at the age of 22. My next lead came from the US Censuses of 1840 and 1850. They show Otis and Sally living in Cambridge, VT with their three children and they list Otis and Sally as both having been born in New Hampshire (but no town given). This was exciting! I finally had a lead on their origins! New Hampshire!
    This past weekend, I took the next step. Searching in NEHGS's mircrofilm library, I found that Otis H. Knight paid taxes in Washington, NH for three years only: 1825, 1826 and 1827. Since the Knight family bible says he and Sally married in 1827, and their first child was born in Cambridge, VT in 1831, it seems reasonable to assume they moved to Cambridge shortly after their marriage which is why Otis is not listed in the Washington, NH tax rolls for 1828.
    I did not find a marriage record for Otis and Sally, nor did I find a birth record for any Otis Knight anywhere in NH during this time period. Also, there were no other Knights listed in Washington tax rolls, so I am guessing he was not born there.
    Now, as to Sally, I found birth records for several Sally Howes in NH during this time. Two of them seem to have the most potential. One lists Sally Colby Howe, born in New Boston, NH on February 7, 1797, daughter of Aaron and Betsy Howe. This is the right year, but wrong date.
    The second is for Sally Howe, born in Jaffrey, NH on March 15, 1791 to Adonijah and Sarah Howe. This is the right date, but wrong year. Some follow-up info I received from a Howe researcher via e-mail leads me to beleive that the Sally Howe who married Otis H. Knight is not the daughter of Adonijah. I've got no further info on Aaron and Betsy Howe.
    All three of the identified NH towns are in southern or south-western New Hampshire. Washington is in Sullivan County. Jaffrey is in Cheshire County. New Boston is in Hillsborough County.
    Do you have any info which might give me any further lead on Otis H. Knight? Where did he come from? Were there other Knights in Washington or nearby towns who could be his parents? Any help is much appreciated. Best Wishes, David G. White

    I have a problem and perhaps you can help. My grandparents were passing through New Hampshire and stopped long enough for my grandmother to have a baby. The family doesn't know why my grandparents, John and Myrtle McClenaghan, were in New Hampshire, let alone where. Their baby, my mother, Eleanor McClenaghan, born 1915, died in 1951. She has two younger sisters who don't know the circumstance that brought John and Myrtle to New Hampshire. My grandfather John Medley McClenaghan was a logger from New Brunswick. He went to the state of Washington, where he met my grandmother Aura Myrtle Moon. They had a son in Seattle, 1911. I believe they then tried to live in New Brunswick and my grandmother didn't care for it, so they headed back to Washington. As I said, Eleanor was born 1915 and her sisters were born in a Lumber Camp back in Washington, in 1919 and 1922. No one I have talked to knows Eleanor's birth date. Is there anything I can do? I am thinking that if I check with all the lookup people in all ten counties that, perhaps, someone could find something or come up with a suggestion. Thank you for your attention to this query. Kindest Regards, Mary

    I am looking for an ancestor somewhere in Sullivan County, New Hampshire. The family was in Kentucky by 1814, where my ancestor, James MERVILLE ARRINGTON was born. I was told that his maternal grandmother whose last name was MERVILLE was from Sullivan County, New Hampshire. I would appreciate any mention of the name MERVILLE at any time. It's apparently an unusual name. My only other clue would be that he named his oldest daughter Mary Merville ARRINGTON, so possibly his mother was Mary MERVILLE. Thank you for checking. Evelyn Brown

    Hello, My Name is Brian Hamilton from Knob Noster Mo. I have been working on my family's history for about 10 years. I have a few sides of the family I am kind of stuck on. I am looking for information about a Amos Rawson born 1808. He had a daughter Lucinda L Rawson born Sept 1846 Croyden NH. Do you know of anyone who might be researching this family? Or could you see if he is listed with his parents. Maybe one link will fix me up. Thanks so much Brian

    I have a journal written by my 3ggg grandmother (from Providence RI) in 1850 when she and others travelled to the White mountains. One of the towns she mentions is Cornish - but it could not logically be the current Cornish, NH. That would be far out of the way. She says she went about 20 miles from Center Harbor to Cornish and on to Conway. Among other places named are Bartlett and Tamworth and Eaton Corners. It seems to us Cornish isn't near any of these. This journal is very interesting to me. Sarah Jenckes Shaw was about 65 at the time of her trip. My husband has just transcribed the New Hampshire part, thinking the Appalachian Mountain Club might be interested. I intend to provide it to some genealogical place - maybe to the NHGenWeb if you want it. I need to fill in some genealogy before doing that. Margaret Olson

    I would appreciate it if you would endeavor to find the marriage record of Charles Cole Spalding and Sophia P. Willard, which I believe took place in 1830. Charles Spalding was from Plainfield, and Sophia was probably born in Acworth. She was the daughter of James Willoughby Willard and Lydia Willard (maiden name). He was the son of Daniel Spalding and Sally Cole. Thank you very much.

    SPALDING - WILLARD I have two sets of ancestors from Sullivan County, as my gr-gr-grandparents married in the county. They are Charles Cole Spalding, son of Philip Spalding and Sally Cole of Plainfield, and Sophia P. Willard, daughter of James Willoughby Willard and Lydia Willard. Sophia seems to have been born in Langdon, even though an examination of New Hampshire birth records on microfilm did not locate a birth record. Brothers born before and after her were both born in Langdon.
    In 1837 the Charles Spalding family moved to northern Ohio as did some of the brothers of Sophia Willard.
    Can you suggest some sources which I should consult to get more information about these ancestors? I have looked at the town records of Plainfield and find that some are written by Philip Spalding, who was the Proprietor's Clerk for some years. I will be grateful for any leads which you may have. Janet Nevling

    I'm looking for information about Solomon Walker, who lived in Sullivan County in the late 18th or early 19th century, when I believe he moved to Michigan. I'd like to know the names of his children. More specifically, I'm looking for information about my g-grandfather, Edwin D. Walker, who was born in Michigan in 1828 but who later lived with and was apparently a close relative of Leander S. Walker, who was born in Claremont in 1809. Also, I believe my g-grandfather Edwin D. Walker may be related to Andrew Carroll Walker, born in Claremont in 1907. Does anyone know anything about the ancestors of Solomon Walker of Claremont or any of his descendants? Any information about these Walkers would be greatly appreciated. George Walker Metamora, MI
