My great great grandparents (ANNIE BARRETT & PATRICK W O'BRIEN) were
residents of Deep River when they were married in 1871 or 1872.  At that time, what Roman Catholic Church was closet to Deep River and therefore the most likely church for them to be married in?   Thanks! "

They had two sons, Harold and Robert. Are there any descendants still in that area?

2 February 2002:   Sue Daniel posts:  "Yeah, I've already figured out there were zillions of CHAPMANs in CT pre1800--something about the 63 CT Rev War vets and the 200+ marriages pre 1800!  So i know it's kind of a slim chance.  Nonetheless, in spite of this, I'm looking for info--backwards or forwards--for a Dea. William CHAPMAN, buried in Saybrook cem, Rev. War soldier, according to index of abstracts of graves of rev war soldiers.
I'd like to know who he was married to, if possible--the only Saybrook Wm CHAPMAN marriage I found was to Lydia INGHAM on Jan 19, 1764.  And of course, if poss his dates of birth/death.
A huge bonus would be if you have any info on who his parents were, any sibs, etc.
I have a Jed CHAPMAN (short I am sure for Jedediah, and he is called Captain in the book although not in any War of 1812 lists for CT or NY, so ????) who d. Tioga Co NY where Gay's Historical Gazetter of Tioga Co written 1887 says he was born in Saybrook CT Dec. 14 1781 and m. Sept. 28 1803 (presumably in Saybrook) to Content CANFIELD--however they could have married in Durham Greene Co NY where they lived until spring 1811, moved to Berkshire Tioga Co and then in Dec. 1831 to Newark Valley TC where he d. 1852 and she d. 1861; they had 11 kids, mostly boys (Edward, henry, noyes, NC, Lyman, George, Albert, Horace, Ester, Lucy,) including William Henry, fourth kid bn. 1810 who m. Electa Lucy AYRES bn. 1815 MA and had two kids, Jed and Elvira Lucy, before dying in 1838.  Electa remained a widow for c. 20 years, then m. twice more, briefly, before ending up with her son Jed in South Dakota.  Daughter Elvira m. Eli Bond POMEROY in Wisconsin and was my gr gr grandmother--she passed on the Electa from her mother and grandmother to her daughter but perhaps having had enough Greek tragedy they called her Lettie; both Elvira and Lettie were blind as adults, as was Elvira's brother Jed.
I am assuming with all this info that Jed is in fact descended from one of the proliferating and confusing linked Saybrook families, and perhaps had father William; Jed may also have had sib Ezra (in Berkshire TC NY, aged 50-60 in 1840, wife, 6 kids at home, grown son Amos m with one young son)
I would be terribly grateful if you have ANY info about them; I have been looking fruitlessly for an Edward CHAPMAN as father of Elvira for some years as that's what my aging cousin (actually my grandfather's cousin, and they were grandchildren of Elvira's) at 97 was sure had been the name for her maternal grandmother's father.  But no Edwards of right age/family distribution dead before 1858 surfaced, and it was only luck that put me on to William, since he wasn't old enough to be in census 1830 and was dead by census 1840! thank god for on line census images!"

11 November 1999:  Jim Rogers posts:  Seeking descendants of Gurdon and John Clark ROGERS, both born at East Haddam and buried at Fountain Hill Cem in Deep River.  Gurdon was a Rev War veteran, married Ruth BEEBE, and died in 1839.  His son John Clark ROGERS married Phebe GLADDING, and died in 1873.  He had a son, William Clark ROGERS (1830-1864), and a grandson, Daniel Shipman ROGERS (1860-1917).  I have a good deal of data on the ROGERS family, but would like to add more on this and other Connecticut lines.  Thank you, and I look forward to
