According to the book written by Millard Fillmore: “Little I believe is known of the genealogy of the Fillmores, as the family has been quite too obscure to mae it an object to trace its pedigree. I know nothing beyond my great grandfather, John Fillmore, a native of Ipswich, Mass…” He cites a book written in 1857 by dr. Ashbel Woodward of Franklin, Connecticut, contributed to the New England Historical New England Genealogical Register a “Memoir of Captain John Fillmore, with a Genealogy of the Fillmore Family” as a soucrce for much of Millard Fillmore book about his father.[1]
