Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with anyone who shares the same genealogical or historical interests. Here is my family tree. Ancestors ancestors
Have primary documentation on where Nathaniel Foot (1592-1644) grew up, including 1608 map showing his father's house site in Shalford in Essex, and that of other families who ended up in Hartford, Wethersfield or Windsor in the 1630s. Tiny ShalfoId was a peculiar place for a fishmonger in London to move in the late 1580s, unless you know that it was only 2 miles from Wethersfield, where a famous non-conformist preacher was able to find refuge from the Anglican church authorities of the time! I also have a copy of the bill of sale for the house Nathaniel Foote bought in Colchester shortly after his marriage to Elizabeth after he completed his apprenticeship in 1618. Many other Great Migration stories to tell as well!

In answer to the note you put on Burr-104:

Yes, the profile surely may be cleaned up, Kathy. So if you have the time and inclination, please do so.

When I adopted Ann Burr Betts profile, I thought I'd have the time to take care of it, but I am heavily involved in several other PGM profiles and am giving all the time I have available - hours, days, months, years.... I have available.

I'm wondering, why not just get on the trusted list and do the work instead of post all that information in the comments? Perhaps you're feeling insecure about working on a profile I manage, but trust me, I don't mind if you are willing.


RE Comment on Burr-949

The article is already listed as one of the sources. Very interesting.

Kathy, I saw your wonderful comment about Appleton Farms on Samuel II's profile. I too am descended from Samuel through Samuel II and Jonathan and visited the farm last August. I was well received as a descendant.

Thanks Kathy, I've added John Kelsey Burr Jr's sister Elizabeth Day Burr, per your suggestion.

Hello Kathy, Thank you for your post on my wife Peggy Burr Stevens' profile. It would have been impossible for us to find the names of her birth parents, without DNA, Ancestry and WikiTree. We couldn't get anything, but the runaround, from Maryland Vital Statistics and New York Courts. With the availability of DNA and Genealogy, who needs the bureaucrats?
