Bio and Links
Bio Photo My direct ancestral line in America begins with the Robinsons of Cambridge, MA, with William Robinson (1640-93) and Elizabeth Cutter (1645-92) being one of the first 56 members of Cambridge Village, MA and also the lineal family of Captain Richard Olmsted (1612-87), an original proprietor of Hartford, CT.


If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not,
Or don't you really know?

Some strange discoveries are made
In climbing family trees,
And some of them, you know, do not
Particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps,
You wouldn't care to know.

But here's another question, which
Requires a different viewó If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?

RE: Rufus M Harwood
Hi Douglas!
Thank you for connecting Rufus and Nancy. You are correct. Children need to be connected to their parents, not the other way around. I forgot about that.. I will contact the manager of Nancy the child and have do the connection Thanks again for your help!

will of Richard Olmstead
As Richard is my direct ancestor, I would very much like to have a copy of his will(--especially the signature).

Thanking you ahead of time.

Martha Lucas Merrill
The information you have on Martha Lucas Merrill is different than what I have. I see there are two Martha Merrill's in North Beeman Cemetery. Can you help me with the info on her birth which you have as Colrain,Hampshire, MA instead of Vermont. She was my 5th GGM and I need all the info you can help me with. I appreciate you help. I don't have parents for her, either.

Fanny Foss
I am almost speechless I am so excited to get the information you sent. Fanny was my 3rd great grandmother and I could not figure out her maiden name or her history before she married Nathaniel. You have solved a mystery for me and I so appreciate you passing the information on to me. Bless you!

Capt. John Weeks
Hi Douglas! I am descended from patriot John Weeks (m. Thankful Slade)through the daughter of his son John Weeks (d. 1810), Aurelia Weeks Smith (who was born after her father's death). I have long suspected that John and his twin sons, Jedediah and Philo were buried in the Webster Cemetery and was excited to see your recent posts and information on my Weeks family. Would you be willing to share where you got the information? Some of what you posted is new to me, such as the "Capt." part of John Weeks. Thank you kindly. -- dls

Valentine Goodrich
I checked this out a little further and the Valentine who married Ann Robinson was the son of Valentine who married Sally Emery Goodrich Ayer. It was Sally's husband who died at Lundy's Lane as proven by the copy of her pension from him recorded in the National Archives. That will take you one generation further back.

Looking more at the Robinson might bring you even further back- the daughter of William Swan and Mary Russell, Mary Swan married William Robinson. She is my 4th gr Aunt. Her sister, Jane, married Richardson Emery and is the mother of Sally Emery Goodrich Ayer. Look at my "Mom's Ancestral Line" on My grandmother was Nina Emery Tamer. She was the daughter of William Emery and Jennette Cline. William's parents are Enoch Emery and Alzina Canfield. Enoch is the son of Russell Emery and Polly Emery, who were 1st cousins. Russell is also the son of Richardson and Jane and Sally's brother.
