Thank You So Much for all the work you've done on this, Eddie. It is a Wonderful Source of Information. I have found several of my Ancestors Gravesites throughout these pages.

I was looking for Majel Roddenberry's antique peeps ! DIDN'T find any (heavy sigh)
I was actually hoping for some info on a g'uncle who was the Anglican priest in Norwalk just before and during the Revolution.  I keep hoping I'll find a record of where and when his children died.  No luck on that, either.  So, major commiseration for your woe.

From what I've heard, the British burned at least part of the town and I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the local mob did for the Anglican church records.
