Silvia Conant born 1791 Bridgewater, MA descends from 2 Conants lines

+4 votes
Sylvia Conant's parents were distant cousins, both with the Conant surname. Her father was Silvanus and her mother was Silvia. The line traces back to Roger Conant of the Great Migration. Are there other Conants in WikiTree who are related to Roger or others from the Great Migration who married into the Conant line?

Hi Frank

Must need coffee or something as I'm not following your question.  Roger descendants are found in his Family Tree and Tools  - click Descendants

I am related to a lot of them.

Hi Chris,

My line is through Roger Conant's son, Lot who married Elizabeth Walton.

It was my ancestor, Silvia Conant, born 1791 in Bridgewater, MA, who was the daughter of Silvanus Conant born 1747, Bridgewater and the Silvia Conant born 1755 in Bridgewater. Silvanus and his wife, Silvia descended from distant Conant cousins.

The above couple trace their lines back to Nathaniel Conant who was born in 1650 at Beverly, Essex, MA and married Hannah Mansfield. Silvanus descends from one of Nathaniel and Hannah Conant's sons, and Silvia descends from another of Nathaniel and Hannah Conant's sons.
Roger Conant is my ninth great grandfather so Lot is my 8th great grandfather.  Giles Burley (PGM) is also my 8th great grandfather, descendants married into Conant line.
Roger Conant and Lot are the same number of generations back for me too.

My maternal grandmother's middle name is Conant. There is a book titled "Roger Conant, A Founder of Massachusetts" by Clifford K. Shipton. It was published in Cambridge, MA by Harvard University Press in 1944. My mother gave it to me when I started getting interested in family history.

So, Nathaniel Conant m Hannah Mansfield and two of their sons are my ancestors.

Lot b 1689 m. Deborah Lovell   Nathaniel b 1678/79 m Elizabeth Haines.  

Lot & Deborah had                                   Nathaniel and Elizabeth had

Gershom b 1714 married                            John b 1725 married

Anne Kingman who had                                 Abigail Pratt who had

   Silvanus b 1747                       married                   Silvia b 1755
