>>I am interested in establishing a link to early CT families with surname
SEARS and PLUMB.<<
Marsha ~ My SEARS ended up around Middletown, CT.......but they started out
with Thomas SAYRE, in Southampton, Long Island, New York. It might be worth
checking the books "The Early History of Southampton, L.I., N.Y." by George
Rogers Howell and "The Descendants of Richard Sares (Sears) of Yarmouth, Mass.
1638-1888" by Samuel P. May, for clues to yours!
Hope this helps,
I would recommend the Barbour Collection for Connecticut and "Families of
Early Milford" by Susan Woodruff Abbott. None of their information is
confidentialso you may not be interested.
Regards, Bob Hull
P.S. Mrs. Sears always spelled her name "Frances". Sometimes illiterate copiers

I am interested in establishing a link to early CT families with surname SEARS and PLUMB. I believe my ancestor may be connected to JOHN SEARS and FRANCIS PLUMB married 1740 in Milford, CT. If anyone has a list of children of these individuals I would appreciate it. Second, I am looking for a link to David Sherman Sears born 1780 likely in Fairfield CT (near Monroe, Bridgeport, Stratford). An old Sears book indicates he had at least 2 siblings, Betsey and Hannah, "one of whom married a Plumb". I am also interested in information on JOHN SEARS b. 1742 in Milford, CT and d. 1790. Specifically I need any information on wife or children. Thank you very much for any information. If a link is established I have a lot of downstream information to share.

I am looking for parents for my Jeremiah SMITH b 1762 in Norwalk m Anna
KELLOG. He served in the revolution and I recently learned that one of
his commanders was an Eliakim SMITH. Since Jeremiah was a teen when he
served I am wondering if Eliakim could be his father. I have found an
Eliakim SMITH b 25 Dec. 1734 in Norwalk with a marriage in March of
1759. I have not found a list of his children. His father is also
Eliakim SMITH b by 13 Jan. 1704 Hadley MA. I would appreciate hearing
from anyone with information about any of these lines.
Subject: Lawrence - Bethel, CT
I'm looking for the death date of William Lawrence, born May 5, 1838 and married to Mary Jane Fairchild, in Bethel, 17 Nov. 1856. William died after 1900 as he was listed as living in the 1910 Census of Bethel, with his son William A. Lawrence. Mary Jane was living on Elizabeth Street in Bethel in the 1910 census, but not with William. They both worked in 1910 in a hat factory, Mary as a binder and William as a curler. Mary Jane is buried in the 401-1 Cemetery in Bethel, but I haven't found any information on the death or burial of William.
