    Am looking for ancestry of Isaac and Samuel Alden (cousins) who came from Claremont to Indiana around 1813. I have some information on their descendants. Another cousin, York Alden, may have been with them. Does anyone know of a marriage between an Alden descendant and a GIFFORD?

    Wondering if notes of Alonzo Allen, town clerk of Croyden in the Civil War era, which were reported to be microfilmed in 1970 with the town records contain any information on 1. His parentage 2. His spouse and descendents.
    I have an Alonzo Allen ancestor, and anotherAllen, Dwight S. who married a Frances Streeter... I know there was an Alonzo born in New York State about 1837, and wondered if the Town Clerk was any relation or possibly the same party. I would greatly appreciate any information you could provide for me.

    Hello, I found your address on the New Hampshire Web Gen page. I you could help me find a few more of my family, I'd be grateful. My great-great-great grandfather was David Allen, who made his residence in Newport, NH. b. 13 mMay 1777 in Killingworth, CT and d. 27 Dec, 1840, presumably in Newport. I have his father listed as Gideon Allen of Killingworth, CT with wife "Patience" . Nothing more about them. I'd like to trace it back a litte more and try to find if Gideon was a soldier of the Revolution, who he was related to, etc. Any ideas? Have you heard of him? I can provide descendents information, if anyone wants them. Joyce Allen-Luopa

    1) marriage record for Benjamin Chapman to an Abigail ?????? in or about 1787. It may also be under Nabby ????? rather than Abigail ?????.

    I have been searching for the marriage date of my great-grandparents for a very long time. I do know that my grandfather Joseph Alfred Gagne was born in Claremont, N.H. on 8 March 1872. His parents were Ferdinand or Ferdina Gagne and Mary or Marie Cyr. Alfred was their first child. The only information that I have been able to obtain for Mary is her name. I was told that Alfred's parents were from Canada. After he left the U.S. he moved his family to Ste. Helene de Chester, which is close to Arthabaska County and Victoriaville,P.Q. I was told that at one time Mary Cyr had relatives in Claremont. Would you be able to make a search and find some information to the above. I would be greatful for any new information. I am illeterate with computers but I am trying to overcome it. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks, Stella Gagne Roberts

    The published town records of Newport, Sullivan Co., NH, show the marriage of Abigail HUTCHINSON to Benjamin GOODWIN in 1796. There is however an apparently later entry duplicating the same year of marriage which gives her first name differently, so there is unfortunately even some minor doubt whether her first name was Abigail. Her grandson prepared a diary in the late 1800s which identified his grandmother as Abigail HUTCHINSON, born 13 January 1768 in Andover, MA. However, there is no such birth in the published Andover town records. Would appreciate any information on her or any information, thoughts or suggestions on any HUTCHINSON families in the vicinity of Sullivant Co. NH between 1770 and 1800. Also interested in exchanging information with anyone working on the GOODWINS of Newport. -- Kit

    Hello. Hope I'm submitting this correctly. I can find nothing on the internet, census, LDS, etc. We're looking for any information on my husband's great-grandmother HELEN MAR SMART who was born in Corydon. I would guess she was born between 1825-1855. Believe she came with her parents to Michigan. She married Cornelius W.

I would gladly repay the effort by looking up something for Barry County, Michigan.

    Hi, perhaps you could help me locate info on a Peter STEVENS, b. 2 Feb. 1807, Springfield Twp., Sullivan Co. Parents were John W. STEVENS & Anna JUDKINS. I am interested to learn if Peter married while in NH & if perhaps died there. I am researching a Peter STEVENS that according to family bible was b. 1808 in Chester, VT. However, I can not locate any records what so ever of him in VT. This is a long shot, but perhaps he was born in NH, the closest Peter I have found was b. 1807 in Sullivan Co. The only true facts I have is that "my" Peter settled in NYS for a time & married there in 1839. He later settled in IL. & died there. Thanks for any help or suggestions. Pete. Alaska

    Sumner - Hutchins
    Joshua Hutchins.(Born in Lunenburg, Ma, 27 May 1768, died in Canada.) He lived for a time in Walpole, NH. He married the following two sisters, one at a time! Elizabeth Sumner (b. 14 Aug 1772 place unknown, died in Canada.) Judith 0r Judah Sumner (b. 11 Oct 1775 place unknown, died in Canada.) ****James, Joshua's sister, Matilda Hutchins, married, in Charlestown, in Nov 1803, George Wheaton Sumner of Claremont, NH, but Charles apparently did not have sisters with the names in question. Some- where in the area, the two sisters were born. I am searching for their birthplaces and their parents. I can't afford to come to NH (I live in Vancouver, B.C.) but I would gladly PAY you or any re- searcher you could suggest. Joshua travelled through VT to immigrate to Canada bet. 1790-1799 so he may have met the sisters in VT, but I doubt it. I would bet they are from the Walpole/Charlestown/ Claremont area. Can you help me ? (Judith, or Judah, Sumner is easier to look up as it is less common than Elizabeth, though Eliz. is my g.g.g.grandmother.) Any help at all would be so much appreciated.

  • Date: Thu, 4 Mar 99 18:20:30 -0500 From: Jonathan WALKER - KEMPTON I am looking for some genealogical information, and I hope that you can point me in the right direction. I am looking for birth and death records for two of my ancestors: 1. Joab (or Job) Walker b. circa 1790 (in Croydon or Grantham, NH (?))
    2. Thankfull Kempton b. circa 1790 (in Croydon, NH. Her father is Samuel(?) Kempton)
    Joab and Thankfull were married sometime before 1828 (which is when their son, Henry J. Walker, was born). I have looked in the Bureau of Vital Statistics in Concord for this information, but have come up empty handed. Any information that you can provide will be most appreciated! Sincerely, Jonathan Lamy

    William Walker was born in 1797 in Plainfield married 1/23/1825 to Lucy Ladieu. William Walker died 5/20/1875 in Plainfield and Lucy Ladieu died 3/3 1873 in Plainfield. I have been trying to find out for years who William Walker's parents were and where they were born. William and Lucy had 12 children. Number 5. was William C. Walker b. 6/25/1831 married 1/9/1854 to Alice C. Hadley William C. Walker and Alice had a son Robert L. Walker b.7/19/1875 married 12/2/1905 to Ellen Mary Nelson b. 1/16/1878 in Bridgewater, Windsor County, Vermont. Robert and Ellen had a daughter Margaret Helen Walker b. 3/4/1906 married in 1939 to Charles K. Sivaslian, Sr. Margaret died in 1993. These were my parents. I have been trying to trace the Walker family back from William and Lucy with no luck. ANY help you can give me would be deeply appreciated. This Walker family was very large in number with all of the children born in Plainfield. Charles K. Sivaslian, Jr.

    I have been searching for several years for my direct ancestor, Whitcher Wheeler, born abt 1774 at Goffstown, m. Lydia Cheney abt 1795. LDS records say his father was Nathaniel Wheeler. The nearest Nathaniel Wheeler I can find is Nathaniel Wheeler, married to Mehitabel Haven of Croydon, NH. Whitcher Wheeler was a Baptist by religion. Whitcher and Lydia's son, George Washington Wheeler, lived most of his life at Bow, NH. Are there any records of the children of Nathaniel and Mehitabel (Haven) Wheeler of Croydon, NH. I know that this Nathaniel was a Rev. War veteran. Thank you and sincerely yours, William M. Hopkins

    Looking for records, possible descendants of Mary E. WALKER, born in 1861 to James and Carrie (MORSE) WALKER. Carrie, a daughter of Loring and Mary (DWINNEL) MORSE of Acworth, was born in 1836 and was still living in 1900. Her second husband was Wilbur F. MERRILL, born about 1833. He was a carpenter in Charlestown in 1870, a carpenter and farmer in 1880 amd a farmer in 1900. Mary was last located in the 1870 census, when she was 9 and attending school. Does anyone have more information about this family, especially descendants of Mary Walker, if any? Please help if you can by contacting a relative: Corban Goble

    John Wilson married Margaret McFarland (from where?) and settled in Acworth, NH in 1774. He died in Acworth on August 2, 1811, age 82. He was apparently born in Londonderry, Ireland: do you have a record that includes any information on what year he was born, what year he came to the U.S., names of siblings (he was a triplet), any information about his parents. Thank you!! Karen Zaccor
