I am looking for information on WILLIAM BROWN (Browne), b. late 1600's possibly in Middletown, CT. He later lived and died in Colchester, CT. I am trying to determine his origin and a clue had led me to Middletown.
If anyone has any early vital records for Middletown, could you please check for a Brown family and the possibility of William fitting in during this time frame.

I have a photo of my grandfather SAMUEL Edward O'DONNELL taken around 1880-1900 in Middletown, CT, with his first wife. The photo was taken by a professional photographer named Hennigar. I am looking for information on her or him. Marriage, children, or death of her or divorce.
Samuel was born in Conn. in 1873 his father was named Michael O'Donnell. In 1921 he lived in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Samuel is handsome and has dark brown hair and light colored eyes. He seems to have a missing thumb joint. The photo of the women is sweet to look at, she has brown hair with a soft curl and light color eyes. She is wearing a thin chain choker teardrop pearl pendent, and a dark silk dress with a dark lace ruffle and dark lace neck, and a cloth rose on the long slim skirt.
The information I have was told to me by my mother, she also said that he was born in the town of New Brunswick CT., from my search I found this to be in error, as I have only found N.B. in New Jersey and Prince Wm. Canada. From his death certificate, his birth date was given as October 3, 1873, in the state of CT. Samuel died in California when my mother was four years old, so her information was limited. I have not been able to find a Samuel Edward O'Donnell on the Middletown records, I did find an Edward O'Donnell and an Ellen Cotter. They are ten years older, and could or could not be the one's I am looking for. Any help would be welcome.
Thank you, Elizabeth Whittaker-Williams

23 FEB 1999 - Jim Rogers mailto:jimmerjam@aol.com

I'm looking for any information on what happened to John Rogers, a cooper of New London, who bought a house and shop in Middletown in 1732, added to it in 1736 and sold it in 1739. In the 2nd and 3rd sales, he was called "of Middletown," even though his two kids' births were recorded in New London (John 1734 and Katherine 1736). His wife's name was Mary TOMKIN. Did he remarry?

He may be the John Rogers listed as a company clerk in a 1758 Middletown unit, listed the Rolls of CT Men in the French and Indian Wars. Listed with him was Francis WHITMORE, who was a witness to one of his land purchases from John WHITMORE.

John and Francis WHITMORE appear to have served in 2 East Haddam units in 1759 and 1760, although John did not. John's kids married in East Haddam and lived among John's siblings and cousins. Was a different John ROGERS, cooper, who lived in Middletown in 1790 and 1801 (per Apprentice Indentures) a son by another wife, or perhaps a grandson?

I will gladly trade information. - Jim Rogers, 7121 East Briarwood Drive, Englewood, CO 80112-1160
