I have information on this line, but I would like to get more solid information from my Philander Salmon Fenton, born in 1833 at Fort Ann, New York. I have his father as Peter Fenton who was born in New York in 1803. Peter's father was Samuel Fenton who was born on December 26, 1760 in Braintree, MA. Samuel was the 11th of 13 children of Thomas Fenton. Any additional help that can be providded will bve greatly appreciated. I will be glad to share what I have as well.

You might also want to try Jane Devlin's website that has a transcription of early Braintree, MA records.   The transcriptions are usually by year as opposed to by name, so it takes a little more reading to get details.

Thanks. I was able to get a few more bits of documentation for my "older" Fenton lines from that information. I think I even found a few children and marriages that I did not know about.
