WOODWORTH Family Photograph

Shelley Cardiel
 

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Harry Chester WOODWORTH which was taken at the Bartlett & Webster Studio in Hartford, CT sometime in the 1860's. Harry appears to be about 3-4 years old in the photograph. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Harry and his family:

 

Harry Chester WOODWORTH was b. Oct 1860 in Westport, CT to parents Benjamin Lord or Lloyd WOODWORTH (1834-1913) and Mary Elizabeth SHERWOOD (1830-1893).  Harry had a sister, Mary Isabella or Isabel “Bella” WOODWORTH LATHROP (1858-1889).  Harry married Mary Emma CUSICK (1866-1961) and they had two children, Chester Sherwood (1893-1968) and Everett Lord (1895-1970). Harry died 16 Mar 1954 in Westport, CT and is buried in the Willowbrook Cemetery in Westport, CT.

 

I am hoping to locate someone from this WOODWORTH Family so that the photograph can be returned to their care.  If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.

 

Thanks,

Shelley


Family Surnames: Prindle Springsteen Bigelow #New-Haven #Hartford

RandyC
 

I have been researching the Prindle family for years, lately I have been trying to nail down all the places my Joel Prindle and his wife Deborah Bigelow lived with their family.

Joel was born 16 Jan 1725 in New Haven Connecticut

I have seen online that he is mentioned in a Canaan, Hartford County Deed on March 30 1749 - I am not sure it is the correct Joel Prindle

and deeds showing Joel living Salisbury, Connecticut  Feb 8 1753 to Oct 15 1753 and Danbury Connecticut  27 Feb 1754 to Jan 1755

Their children: Joel the younger, William, Timothy, Doctor, Lois and my Joseph.

September 24, 1752, Timothy was christened in Rhinebeck NY

Joel and Deborah with children and grandchildren were living in Skenesboro (Whitehall) New York -  1773 Feb. - Tim family of 3 - Joel Sr family of 5 - Joel Jr family of 2 - Wm family of 2

Joseph Prindle married Anna Marie Springsteen on 14 Feb 1779 in the Reformed Dutch Church at Albany.


I would love ANY more info on this family

Thanks Randy

Sorting out the John Bakers #Litchfield #New-London

Wes Baker
 

I am trying to sort out the John Bakers who may have started out in New London, but moved to Litchfield County. There is a John Baker Sr, Deacon John Baker, Lieut. John Baker, etc., and it is possible that some of the titles are shared by the same person who went by them at different points in his life. The John Baker I know for sure was born 11 April 1703 in New London and died 07 May 1787 in Roxbury, Litchfield County. He married Patience Hurlbut and his children include Mary Baker (b. 1730; m. Joseph Allen) and Seth Baker (b. 1735; m. Abigail Woodruff).

There are a number of published genealogies since Mary was the mother of Ethan Allen and most of them point back to Alexander Baker who arrived Charles Town, Massachusetts Bay Colony, in 1635. However, I recall seeing a reference to an article written some time ago that suggested John Baker of Roxbury was not a descendant of his. I am now trying to find that article again since I didn't make a copy or write down the reference at the time.

I am trying to document the connections, so any help in sorting out all the John Bakers would be appreciated!

Thanks Ann for the feedback.  I see Columbia County is quite close to Northwestern Connecticut and so this could indeed be the Utleys Betsey Ann descended from.

Larry,

I checked my records & a few other things and cannot locate any information on your Betsey Ann Utley Vincent.   I certainly will let you know if I do.

My Samuel Utley 1724-1795 and Elizabeth Palmer 1728-1798 left Stonington after 1772 and settled in Columbia Co NY.

I have searched for years  for the progenitor of my Fisher family. I can’t get any further back than three brothers who turn up in 1850 in Suffolk Co. Long Island.

 

Simeon C. Fisher, b. 1815-1820 in CT; d. 1879 in Southold, Suffolk Co. NY.

              Marr. Sarah A. Jennings, daughter of Ebenezer Jennings of Southold, Suffolk, NY

Benjamin Franklin Fisher, b. c1823. Middletown, Middlesex Co. CT; d. 1876 Norwich, New London Co. CT.

              Marr. 1847 to Fanny Maria Havens of Suffolk, NY. (5 children)

              Marr. 1865 Martha Ann Johnson of New London, New London, CT (5 children)

William W. Fisher, b. 1825 in CT; d. 1890 Greenport, Suffolk Co. NY

              Marr. Lydia “Ella” Corwin of Southold, Suffolk, NY

 

I have too much info on these men and their families to post it all here. I’d greatly appreciate anything you think might tie into this family.

 

Hint: they were all painters by occupation.

 

Thank you for reading.

Peck family of Hartford, Middletown, Berlin, New Haven & Litchfield, CT

Carol
 

I have researched this family extensively and also have inherited the Peck family Bibles and a notebook full of Peck info. etc.  If anyone is researching this family and wants to see if I can help them, I would be glad to check my resources.

At one time I offered these Bibles and original writings to the CT State Library (I think that's the name of the place that hold CT historical records) but no one seemed interested.  As far as I know, these records exist no where else.
