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.|
ANCESTORS - A Poem
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
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?

|Laura Kimberley||Simeon & Elijah Hungerford|
I am so sorry I have not been in touch lately. I have been so busy.
I do have the 2 Hungerford Books
The main is Thomas Hungerford of Hartford and New London CT. The 2nd Book is Additions and Corrections by the same author By F. Phelps Leach.
You can go to Higginson Book Company online and find the book and order it. Http://Higgisonbooks.com
Hope this helps ya. I will go back and look at my Hungerford Tree and see What research I found regarding Elijah and the relationship to Simeon. He may be a son or a favored nephew by Simeon Hungerford Sr. He is a very elusive name. I have a tree online on ancestry, I keep it private for except family members only wanting good research and facts not just copying trees. If your interested send me a message privately by email to LauraKimberley1@aol.com and be sure to use the Hungerford Name in the header so I will not think its spam. I always enjoy connecting to cousins and family and discussing heritages. I will add you to my tree to view and to help collaborate if your interested. Take Care, Many Blessings
Thank you for contacting me. My two great aunts, Sarah and Anna Skeels, married Elijah Hungerford of Highgate, VT. My 5X great grandfather, Lt. David Skeels (1746-1833) was their father and the Skeels family came to Highgate ca. 1800 where my 3X great grandmother, Maria (Skeels) Robinson was born in 1805. Skeels and Hungerfords were close family and I would love to know where I could get a copy of the Hungerford books you described. I have seen it publicized. Do you have an online copy? Are you sure Elijah is not the son of Simeon, they are buried next to each other and Elijah named his son Simeon Rice Hungerford. Thanks for all you are doing to keep history alive. Best, Doug Robinson
|Joy||Huldah Sanford Olmsted|
Thanks so much for all of your info on our ancestors! I really appreciate you taking the time to explain it all to me. (It was sad to have to delete so many of my incorrect "ancestors" from the Sherwood line, here I thought I was related to the famous Burr family!)
Now I see that Mary Sanford was a 1st cousin of her husband Timothy so I have a "pedigree collapse" & changing my tree on ancestry.com was easy......
Thanks again for all your great research & you help!

|Joy||Huldah Sanford Olmsted FAG#52052554|
You wrote to me not long ago about our common Olmsted ancestors. I have a question about Huldah Sanford Olmsted, your memorial # 52052554.
The Genealogy of the Olmsted Family -page 211- says that her mother was Ester Sherwood Sanford but your Find A Grave memorial shows that Mary Sanford was her mother & Ester was the 2nd wife of Timothy Sanford. I did some more research & found records that seem to show that Mary was his wife, just like your memorial says.
But before I change my tree on ancestry.com I'd like to verify with you that your memorial is correct.
Thanks for all your work!

|Jeff Manning||Pierce question|
I friended you on this site. Hilkiah Pierce is my 4th Great Grandfather. I am having trouble finding his actual birth location. How do you know it was Bennington Vt.?
I am trying to finish the genealogy from him back to ancestors who first came to this country. I am writing a book and this is the biggest stumbling block I have.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated !!
I live in Mass and have traveled to Vermont various times on genealogy trips.
email is firstname.lastname@example.org
please respond there because I am not sure when I will return to this site.
|Kathleen Baxter||James Little grave|
I worked extensively with Deanna French, a superb and knowledgeable Morristown historian, and she believes that James Little and his first wife, Sarah Hodges, who were my fourth great grandparents, were buried on his land--which she took me to.
There is a great deal of wrong information in this description, including James' death date, which was in 1843, not 1840. I find it highly unlikely that he would be buried in an unmarked grave next to his son.
I greatly appreciate all of the work you have done, and would love to send you the information I have searched so hard to find. I have visited this cemetery, and visited Morristown three times so far.
I am Kathleen Baxter email@example.com. I would love to hear from you. May you have joyous holidays!
|SLJ||Stephen Rice # 91564039 & Thankful Rice # 91564172|
Thanks so much for posting the memorials for these two folks. I noticed a slight error, their death dates have been reversed. Stephen's death date is actually Thankful's death date and Thankful's death date is actually Stephen's death date, according to the Bennington Vermont death records. I am sending you corrections via the findagrave edit feature. Just wanted to let you know the purpose of the edit in case you had any questions.
Thanks again & regards,

Hi: The Hon. John Munro U.E.L. (1728-1800) is on Ontario Hydro's list of Lost Villages Cemeteries as being buried in the Trinity Anglican Cemetery, Riverside, Williamsburg Twp, not in the Cornwall Trinity Anglican Cemetery. Two different cemeteries. I have people buried in both cemeteries, so have been studying them.
|Benjamin West Robinson||Robinson Family Documents|
The Robinson Family Heritage document that my father compiled is over 300 pages and documents the Robinson family genealogy from early 1600 through 1995. It includes all public and family documents my father was able to locate at the time.
|Benjamin West Robinson||Robinson Family heritage|
Hi my name is Benjamin West Robinson from Coral Springs Florida. I am a descendant of Dr. Benjamin West Robinson from Fayetteville. In fact I have his original portrait and Benjamin Robinson's portrait as well in my home office. My father (John Huske Robinson Jr.) spent several years researching and documenting the Robinson family heritage before his death in 1997. He spent a lot of time in Fayetteville while doing his research and acquired some family items from the 19th century. Anyway, should you have an interest in this stuff I would be happy to share with you the documents I have etc.
