I have :
1. William Morgan +Gwladia? - no dates
2. William 1581, Llandalf-1/19/1628-29, Gamorgans
Elizabeth Morgan 1538, Tredragon - 1638/39, Bristol ( a father listed as
another William Morgan, not incest I hope)
3. their sons John, Miles and James
Several of the sons came over. I have James, b 1607, coming to MA, marrying
Margery Hill in Roxbury and then going to Groton. Some of the family became
fairly prominent (not mine) ... turned into governors and such I believe.
Thanks, Nancy. With my luck, every one of these HUBBELLs had a daughter
Mary with no record of her marrying Isaac YOUNGS II on 1 Sep 1757 or
dying in Stratfield 15 Jan 1786. Heck, I'll bet some of them even had

I'm searching for more information on the following ancestors, all
from Fairfield County:
1.. Nathaniel Beach, b. Mar 1662, Stratford; d. 24 July 1747,
+ Sarah Porter, b. Sept 1667, d. 25 Mar 1738, Stratford
2..... David Beach, b. 15 May 1692, Stratford; d. 21 April 1735,
+ Hannah Sherman, b. 1694, d. 19 Feb. 1772, Trumbull
3......... Edmund Beach, b. 4 Sep 1732, North Stratford, d. 1804
+ Eunice Edwards (no dates found)
4................ Elnathan Beach, b. 28 Dec 1762, Fairfield Co., d. 24
Nov 1836 Hamilton, Madison Co. NY
+ Anna, d. 2 Dec 1822, Hamilton, Madison Co. NY
I have siblings of this direct line, but no information at all on the
families of the wives. Would like to find their familes and more
information on the Beach men. I found a David Beach listed as a
private during the Revolutionary War, but can't determine if it is the
same David. Elnathan had a son Lyman Edward and I've found a
Rev. Lyman Beach in Madison County, NY during the approximate
time period, but again have nothing on which to base a connection.
Any information would be appreciated. Would be happy to share
what I do have on the Beach line. Thank you.
The information that I have received from social security is a copy of the
person's original application for social security. The earliest applications
included information such as current address, current employer, place and date
of birth, and parents names.

When I went to Park Cemetery in Bridgeport, I found my relatives in the same
plot and with the same stone as another family. Does anyone have any info on
a Kaesmann family? I was told they donated the land for the cemetery, and
since members of my family were buried there before they actually were open,
they must either be very good friends or somehow related.
Does anybody know if there were a lot of Scots who settled in Fairfield Co.
(New Canaan) before 1800? I'm trying to find the parents of William Henry
MORGAN, born 1801 in New Canaan, and I have learned that his ancestors were
from Scotland and may have also lived in Wales. If there is anybody on the
list researching MORGANs in this area, I'd appreciate hearing from you.
In a recent query, Bill B. asked if the Barbour Collection of
Connecticut Vital Records was the same as the "original." The answer is
yes, and no. Beginning about 1915, Lucius B. Barbour, the State
Examiner of Public Records, began a compilation of all the vital
records, up to 1850, held in each town in the state. He engaged James
N. Arnold, who had done a similar work in Rhode Island, as the principal
transcriber of these records. Arnold did a superb job with 99% plus
accuracy, but as in any transcription, there are a few errors which
examination of the original or its microfilmed version may correct.
However, some of the "originals" were not located and others were in
fact earlier transcriptions by former town clerks. For example, in
Newtown where I live, the "original" death records for 1797 to 1822 are
in three volumes of the Deed Books. They were then transcribed about
the latter date into a "Bill of Mortality" kept by Isaac Beers and
continued by him until 1847. Arnold found Beers's record and two but
not the third Deed Book record, and Beers had made a number of omissions
and errors in his transcription. In comparison of the "original" with
the published Barbour record, among some 700 deaths in this period I
found some 35 or 5% which are missing in Barbour or so garbled as to be
unrecognizable. I found another 250 or 35% for which there was added
data such as age at death or cause of death available from the
"original" record or from a separate and private Bill of Mortality kept
at that time by Henry Beers, a cousin of town clerk Isaac Beers. These
emended records were published in "The Connecticut Nutmegger" in
So be very grateful for Barbour's good work, but, as with any
transcription, use it with due caution.

For those who are new to research, and for those with access to Family
History Centers, aka: FHC (remember, not all of us are near one, and
some of us just can't get there) here is Research Outline to Connecticut
holdings at the FHC (Family History Center) in Salt Lake City. The
current cost for ordering microfiche is $3.75 and takes approx. 1-2
weeks to arrive at your local FHC from Salt Lake City.
Also, many larger libraries have some of the same holdings as the Family
History Center in Salt Lake City. I know if I could get there, the
Orange County Library in Orlando, FL has an excellent genealogy section.
And from what I have seen of offerings on the internet by libraries,
research centers, etc. in Fairfield County, CT, those of you who live up
there have some excellent information available to you. So folks, don't
be afraid to go out and research at your local library, historical
society, rsearch center, or various other areas of research offered.
And if you find anything interesting, share it with the list.
Remember, the internet offers a great deal in genealogical information
and research, but it doesn't offer "everything" you need. So, as stated
in the "Rule of Thumb" on the CTFAIRFI site: "You will not find all of
your ancestors on the internet, and you may not find any here, so
sometimes you just have to leave your computer and really search! Or,
at least send a letter . . ."
Enjoy and happy searching everyone!

I have a John Bulkley that married into my Francis line (I have no
dates on him) and they had six children that I know of.
John Bulkley m. July 17, 1750, Honor Francis b. Apr. 13, 1728
(dau. of Robert and Elizabeth (Butler) Francis of Wethersfield, CT). I
don't know where they lived but their children are:
William Edward Bulkley
This is the extent of my Bulkley knowledge. Does anyone have any
info on these Bulkley's? I have lots of info on the Francis side.
This will be the first in a series of posts with this subject line.
It was written in December of 1934 as a Geneoalogical Guide and Souvenir
to "Commemorate Connecticut's Tercentenary, specifically for Millions of
Descendants in the U.S.A." The author was William Willard Roberts.
There are tons of names in this publication, and it will take several
posts over the course of a few days. It is important to note the Index
section refers to an accompanying map included with the publication. I
couldn't get a good copy of the map that could be read. Regardless, I
thought at least some of you might find major interest in the names.
Some of which I believe have been posted to CTFAIRFI.
Preface of Pioneers and Patriots of Pequannock
"This historical synopsis of pioneers and patriots of Pequannock - now
Bridgeport, Connecticut - including sections of old Fairfield,
Stratford, and Stratfield, makes no pretense of being complete
It is designed primarily as an inexpensive genealogical guide for the
million descendants in the United States of certain families of Puritan,
Colonial, Revolutionary background - a record of outstanding ancestry -
and is (was) privately printed and circulated.
Lest readers misunderstand early Colonial terms: "Blacksmith" is a
maker of hardware and ironmonger rather than horseshoer. A "shoemake"
is not merely a cobbler, but worker in leather-goods generally. An
"innkeeper" is also a general store-keeper."

CTFAIRFI Subscriber Site has an all new look:
According to several sources including HISTORY OF FAIRFIELD CO., CT, VOL I
by Elizabeth Hubbell Schench, pub. 1889
Peter Bulkley son of Rev Edward Buckley of the parish of Odell,
Bedfordshire, Eng, was born Jan 31, 1583 and md 1 Jane, daughter of Sir
Thomas Allen and had 12 children by her. His 2nd wife was Grace, daughter
of Richard Chetwode and had other children. He went to Mass. in 1635 and
was installed as the first teacher of the church of Concord, MA (Rev. John
Jones, Pastor). He died there at the age of 76 in 1659.
Dr. Peter Bulkley son of the Rev. Peter did not settle in Fairfield until
sometime after his brothers. He probably married Margaret Foxcroft of
Boston. He was a doctor and druggist. His will is dated 1691, in which he
calls himself 49 yrs.
Peter, son of Dr. Peter, md Hannah, daughter of John Bulkley. They had a
son Peter who was bapt. in 1711 and a Peter born or bapt. in 1715.
