If you find that Henry Warren Wood had any siblings, please let me
know. I have a Grenville
T. Wood, born Fairfield Co., CT in 1815. I know his father and
T. Wood moved to Macon, GA around 1840, and married and died there.

Thank you so very much to everyone who has offered assistance! You have
made my day! I will contact the Stamford Historical Society and see what
they can do.
Meanwhile, if anyone ever comes across a BEGENT surname in the area, please
keep me in mind - they are probably mine! I find that I can trace my
relation to almost every BEGENT in the U.S., since there are not many. I
would really like to find if there are any Louis Begent's descendants!
Thanks Karen for the Zip Code. I lived in Stamford for my first 50
years. I put 20 years in the Stamford
Fire Dept. Have a lot of cousins there.
I am stuck in 1812 on HENRY WARREN WOOD.
Oh well I will keep trying.

I have a short Fitch line descending from Thomas Sr. - it ends when his
granddaughter Sarah married John Burr. Are your Fitch's descended from
Thomas? I ran into a Fitch researcher several years ago "BEM" (before
e-mail). As I recall, there was another Fitch in the eastern part of CT, but
if your Fitch's were in Norwalk, they were probably in the Thomas line. Have
you checked Jacobus's "History and Genealogy of the Families of Old
Fairfield"? It probably wouldn't list your Elijah, though, since most lines
(in Jacobus) stop around 1800. I'll check my files for any further
information if you are interested.
Tom, Thanks. I have found my WOOD cousins in Liberty but I was hoping to
find more information on a cousin, William Thomas Wood, who is in NC. Or was
at one point. You never know where a connection will come hence the response
to Bill. By the way, is Mr. Vennetten still around the area? He was a great
help to me when I visited the area. Susan

If you're looking for Wheeler info from the Liberty, NY area, I might be
able to help you. I was born & raised there.

I am new to the list, and am looking for information on Louis Stephen Begent. He was born in Brighton, Sussex, England on 8 Oct 1856 and died 1 Dec 1948. I don't have anything but a date of death, no place, obit, cemetery, anything. I believe his wife and daughter both to be named Alice, and possibly another daughter named Mary, as I have pictures labeled with those names taken by photographers in Stamford, CT. No proof on this, though.
Louis Begent is listed on the Stamford, Fairfield Co, CT 1900 census, roll 135, page 164. I have yet to actually see this, so don't know who is listed with him. Does anyone have access?
Just recently, I found a listing in the Westchester Co, NY, Westchester County Incorporations: Personal Names, 1848-1906:
indicating Louis was listed as incorporating the Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye on 10/10/1902.
The Stamford Bibliography lists him as follows:
Begent, Louis S., 12, 16, 29, 160
Rec# 12. Stamford Advocate. Stamford Advocate Presents An Historical Review of the Industrial Business and Civic Life of The Town of Stamford during the past 300 Years (Tercentenary Edition). 1941 Jun 7.

Picturesque Stamford: A Souvenir Of The Two Hundred And Fiftieth Anniversary Of The Settlement Of The Town Of Stamford, Containing An Historical Sketch, Covering Salient Points Of Stamford's History From 1641 To 1892, .....

Rec# 160. Gurley, Frank B. Town Hall Stamford, Connecticut / Erected Eighteen Hundred Seventy Destroyed By Fire February Fourth, Nineteen Hundred Four. 1904.
Can anyone assist me in finding information on Louis or his family? Does anyone have access to the above publications? Obituaries for 1948? I am very interested in anything I can get.
Thank you in advance,
Des Moines, WA
I have the book "Stamford CT, Pictures From The Past", by Carl Lobozzo in
1970. Indeed, there is a photo page 32 that does have a photo of Louis S.
Begent. Unfortunately it is small and not very clear. In fact it is somewhat
out of focus. The caption indicates that he was the Postmaster of Stamford
from 1883 to 1887, so there may be more information available on him from
I would be pleased to make a photocopy of this page and mail it to you if you
would send me your address.
I have a Ruth Fitch, born in Norwalk 1 April 1739, daughter of Theophilius
Fitch and Lydia Kellogg. Their children were Comfort, Ruth, John, Sarah,
Mary, Samuel and Theophilus. Ruth Fitch married Daniel Smith on 22 May
1760 in Norwalk. Daniel Smith supported the British in the American
Revolution and came to New Brunswick in 1783. I have no further information
about the Fitch family, but am interested in any information about
You bet this is a match! Sarah and Mary had 2 brothers one of which was
Thomas who married Ruth Clark in Norwalk 1662. They had 4 kids, Sarah,
Thomas, Mary and Samuel.
Thomas b 1665 married Elizabeth Lane (late 1600s) and they had 4 kids.
2 of which were apparently prominent in local affairs.
Thomas b 6-1700 was listed as "Govenor" and James b 1702was the "Crown
(unsure what those exactly meant - can anyone help?????????)
James married Mary Haynes and had Elijah(and 4 other kids) - who married
Elijah and Phoebe had 10 kids in all!
Would love to exchange info privately off the list - let me know how you
are related!!!! And THANK YOU for responding!!!!

I am very interested in learning more about William and Goodwife Ayers. These may be related as I have many Ayer/ Ayers/ Ayres
from Haverhill, MA, CT. and NJ. Any help on William and his wife of the 1660's greatly appreciated.
