My 7th great grandmother Hannah Henman(Hinman) is buried in the Unity
Burying Ground, but her stone was among many vandalized in the 1950s, so
I don't know where her grave is. She died in 1777.
How can I find a sexton's map or plat of that cemetery made, say, in the
1800s? I would hope that her grave would there be listed. Also graves
of other Hinmans who died in the 1700s.
I visited that old cemetery in 1974 and was awed by its beautiful

Need proof of ancestry of Joshua Bailey, b. ca 1766 m. Olive Glover
(1772-after 1830) daughter of Daniel Glover and Sarah (Sally) Bryan of

James, Elijah, Dudley, Joshua (minor), Ranfford (minor) daughters Mary,
Elizabeth; James, sole executor. Bond for Joshua 1778, issued by brother
James. Have Joshua's signature when he signed off. Need a signature from
a Glover document to prove this is the same Joshua.

Thanks to Nancy Ring-Kendick for giving us this forum. Most of my
paternal ancestors were part of the Puritan Migration who ended up in
Fairfield County: Downs in Danbury; Olmstead and Scott in Ridgefield;
Pulling in Ridgebury; Beers, Johnson,Northrop, and Taylor in Newtown,
and Hull in Fairfield.
My great grandmother, Charlotte Northrop Pulling, kept a journal of
daily events in Newtown and later Danbury from 1855 until the death of
her husband in 1902. I am currently trying to identify the ancestors of
Reuban Griffin and Elizabeth Winton, his wife. She was born in 1756.
Also, the ancestors of Phineas Taylor (1756-1805) of Newtown.
Could you please let the list know what time period you might be
Folks, could everyone please include birth and death dates in your
queries, and if you don't know, then give an approx.? For example c.
1850-1900. That way, it will help people help you.
Thanks a lot everyone!

So pleased to have this new list. Is anyone else researching families in
Greenwich 1840-1900's? I don't find many sources of info for Greenwich
in the LDS catalog. What sources are available otherwise?

While browsing through the Fairfield County website;
(http://www.rootsweb.com/~ctfairfi/) I found some information that might
be of interest to some of you. It is a list of Willow Bend Book
descriptions that are available on CT genealogy. My assumption is, many
of these publications would be available at libraries, especially in CT,
along with some of them being available through the Family History
Center (FHC). If any of you are familiar with these books, please post
to the list and tell us your opinion of them for searching purposes. To
me, they sound very, very interesting to say the least.

GOOD LUCK NANCY & BEST OF LUCK
First, I would like to thank each and everyone of your for subscribing
to the Fairfield list, and let you know how pleased I am with our
progress. The list is just shy of 12 hours old and we already have 30+
subscribers. In my opinion, that's not too bad. And, I haven't even
had a chance to pass the word through the internet resources I have.
Should you know of anyone searching Fairfield County, please tell them
we would love to have them as a subscriber!
Thanks to another list owner, I have learned that the list has had a few
minor technical difficulties today. Please realize that it takes a few
days to get the bugs worked out, and I hope you will stick with us
during this orientation time. One of those difficulties was the replies
were not coming back to the list. Hopefully, I have rectified that
problem within the past few minutes. If not, it will be fixed shortly.
Thanks to all of you for being understanding during the infancy stages
of the Fairfield list. Because of this problem I think it only fair to
you to have you post your emails again tomorrow. If you no longer have
them, don't worry. . .I do. Just email me and ask me to post them for
you. Please include what was in your subject line. If you do this, I
would be happy to re-post under the circumstances.
I have a few ideas in mind to keep this list active and fun. Hopefully,
you will like them, and contribute. One of these ideas is to have a
topic of the week. I know many of you are from families that date back
to "at least" the 1700's in Fairfield County, and one person emailed me
with dates earlier than that. This might be a topic of interest to
people, "Founding Families of Fairfield." With that said, I would like
to hear from the subscribers as to topics that might interest them for a
topic of the week discussion. Please send your email and suggestions
directly to the list and use the subject Topic of the Week. I will then
review all of the emails submitted, and decide on a topic of the week.
Also, please email me directly with other ideas you think might make
this list fun, educational, and beneficial to all subscribers.
Lastly, this list belongs to all of you, the subscribers. Without you,
it won't last long, so my sincere thanks to you for being here. If you
see anything wrong technically, give it a few hours. I will try my best
to keep the technical problems to a minimum, and when they do arise will
handle them at first notice.
Again, thank you all.
A great uncle of mine, WILLIAM MURPHY, was living in Stratford, CT in the
1920 census, had daughters, Loretta, Helen and Mary. He was still living
in CT when my grandfather died in 1948, but maybe not in Stratford. Any
information on descendants greatly appreciated. Bill Scott.
George Clayton Sanford was born in Norwalk, CT, July 30, 1886. He was one of
9 children born to Charles Bouton Sanford and Nellie Cecelia Fitch Sanford.
He married Madeline ? in Port Chester New York on June 19, 1906. According to
family legend, he had a dispute with family members, (all from the Norwalk
area) left the family unit and was never heard from again.
I am unable to find any record of any children or of his death. Any help
would be more than welcome. Thanks so much.

I am searching for any and all family members and descendants of the
above families. At any time and any place. Most of my ancestors came
from the Fairfield County area after having moved over from Long
Island. From Fairfield County, some were Loyalists that went to Canada,
and some went South and others west to NY State, and to Michigan and
beyond. We have a 32,500 family member database so we also might be
able to help you in your research..All queries welcome..Thanks Charlie

Before I begin the whole story, let me list the surnames I'm researching.
If you don't know anything about any of them you don't have to read the
rest: SANFORD, BRONSON, BALDWIN, BOTSFORD, GILLETT or GILBERT, DUNNING,
FOOTE, WHITNEY, LABOREE, BRISTOL, FAYERWEATHER.
My Sanford ancestors lived in Fairfield County from 1639, when Thomas
Sanford (1607/08-1681) moved to Milford, until Elias BRISTOL SANFORD
(1791-1881)moved briefly and ineffectively to Pennsylvania, leaving behind
I own the Carlton Sanford genealogy and would be happy to do lookups. My
interest, however, is in the female lines, since I know little about the
ancestry of the various Sanford wives, to wit:
Thomas SANFORD married Sarah? ( d. 1681) in Dorchester MA. There is much
confusion about her maiden name and I prefer her to remain anonymous until I
see reliable information.
Their son, Samuel SANFORD(1) (1643-1691) m. Hannah BRONSON (d. 1674),
daughter of Richard BRONSON. Any and all BRONSON material welcome.
Samuel and Hannah's son, Samuel SANFORD(2) (1679/80-1729) married Esther
BALDWIN, daughter of Nathaniel BALDWIN and Hannah BOTSFORD in 1701/02.
Looking for info on BALDWIN and BOTSFORD. This Samuel moved his family to
Newtown in 1711.
The next Samuel SANFORD(3) (1704-1731) married married Hannah GILLETT or
GILBERT (1704/05-aft. 1758) in 1731. If anyone knows what her surname was
or anything about her family, naturally I'd be thrilled to hear it.
Samuel SANFORD(4) (1742/43-1817), married first Abiah DUNNING and second
Charity FOOTE, daughter of Daniel FOOTE and Sarah WHITNEY. I am interested
in both DUNNING and FOOTE for reasons described below. I am aware that
there is much published material on the FOOTE and WHITNEY families but would
be interested in learning the ancestry of Sarah WHITNEY's mother, Ann
Isaac SANFORD (1768-1848), the son of Samuel SANFORD(4) and Abiah DUNNING,
married Charity FOOTE's daughter by her first husband, Anna BRISTOL,
daughter of Charity FOOTE and Elias BRISTOL, so I am descended from both of
Charity's husbands and welcome info on the DUNNING, FOOTE and BRISTOL
Elias BRISTOL SANFORD (1791-1881) married first Sally LOCKWOOD and second
Lucretia FAYERWEATHER. Elias and Lucretia moved their family in 1839 to
Wayne County PA but later returned to Sandy Hook to take over the family
business. Some of their children returned to Connecticut and others stayed
in PA. I have plenty of data on the PA branch if anyone is interested.
Hoping to meet some Fairfield cousins.
