Looking for information regarding Deborah Crow, born circa 1694,
wife of Samuel Lathrop b. Jan. 6, 1685, d. Nov. 7, 1754 of New
London CT. They married July 24, 1715. Were her parents
Nathaniel Crow and Deborah Leffingwell of Hartford? Have found
information that Nathaniel died 1695, had 3 children, [one of
which was a daughter Deborah], Deborah Leffingwell Crow
remarried Andrew Warner. She died shortly thereafter. Deborah
Crow would have been about 10 years of age. Was she raised by
the Leffingwell family of New London? Any evidence to confirm or
contradict this theory would be greatly appreciated. Thank

died Jan 1864, Eastford, CT, maried Delia Griggs, eldest

1776, Woodstock, CT. Joseph Weeks first appears in Pomfret, CT
land records in 1800 and in Ashford, CT land records in 1807. He
had a land transaction with Jonathan Weeks in 1808. The early
land records list him as Joseph Weeks Jr. Joseph and Delia
Griggs Weeks had; 1) Pamela who married Lyman Lyon 10 July 1841,
and divorced from him on 24 Apr 1851. 2)Ema J., 3) Daniel
Brother # 3 Jonathan Weeks born @ 1782, Waterford section of New
London, CT, married May 30, 1797 or 1799 to Elizabeth Waterous,
as it is stated in Ashford, CT records. Barnard, VT records
state the name of the mother of the three children born there to
be Elizabeth Child. The children born in Barnard, VT are
Charlotte born 10 May 1800, Charles born 4 Jan 1803 and David
Dana Nelson Weeks born 1 March 1806. There was also a son
Jonathan born, place unknown. Jonathan Sr., bought land in
Barnard, VT in 1810 and was in the War of 1812, from Barnard.

Almira Parrish in Ashford, CT on Dec 23, 1827. David Dana Nelson
and Almira Parrish Weeks had: Marcus J. Weeks 1833, Westford,

Snicker's Ford, July 13, 1864. Marcus married 1st Mary M.
Howlett 27 Dec 1852, Eastford, CT. From this union 1 child
Edward, died young. Marcus married 2nd Harriet Treat 10 Apr
1855, Almond, NY. From this marriage a daughter Delia was born
13 Apr 1857 in Almond, NY. Dealia married Isaac Hadsell. It
appears that Harriet Treat Weeks dies and Marcus Weeks married
Laura M. Baker. From this marriage only 1 child, Grace Darling
Weeks born Apr 4, 1862. We know that the brother of Marcu Weeks,
namely Agustus D. Weeks lived in Ellincot, Chautaqua Co., NY and

I'm trying to find the parents of JOHN F. McCARTY Sr., who was
born 11 Sep 1852/3 in Fitchville, New LondonCo, CT. I'm guessing
his family might appear in the 1860 census, but that volume is
missing from our State Historical Society library. I know that
he married MARGARET T. THOMPSON (b: Mar 1865, WI) and had (7)
children FRANK, WILLIAM, JOHN, DENNIS, MARY, HUGH & JEROME
-- but that was after he moved away from Connecticut (to
IAKSNE), so that won't help much. His sons were mostly
railroadmen, so perhaps that will provide a clue. Ultimately,
I'm angling to find this branches hometown in Ireland. The name
*might* be McCARTHY, but my docs seem to keep a consistent
spelling to the contrary. Any leads gratefully

Wayne Hurd I would appreciate whatever you can find on my
great grandparents, Harry HURD (also spelled HERD, b.circa 1857,
England), m. Anna GILLETTE (b.circa 1855, England). They settled
in Taftville, New London Co., Connecticut. Harry's father's name
may have been either Henry or Harry. The name Harry was passed
down from my great grandfather, to my grandfather, to my uncle
and to another of my grandfather's nephews. Family tradition has
it that Harry and Anna came to CT,USA just before 1898, via a
port in Lancashire, my uncle thinks it was either Blackpool or
Liverpool. They would have had as many as 6 children prior to
1898, probably Grimshaw, Mary, John and Walter. There is no idea
where in Lancashire they resided, family tradition has it that
my cousin, John HURD, while a pilot in WWII, was stationed in
England and went to Lancashire to lookup some HURDs, and found
some. They were family and had wondered whatever happened to
Harry and Anna's family. John died in WWII without passing on
