What I'm Working On

NOTE: PLEASE feel free to comment here if you have any information to share!

William Barnes of East Hampton, NY

The history of William Barnes is definitely tied to Charles Barnes of East Winch, Norfolk, England and East Hampton, NY somehow.

Matthew, Daniel Ray, Sr. and Daniel Ray, Jr. (NY/CT/VT/OH)

This Ray line has not been developed at all and I feel as if I have been working on it for many, many years. The line falls apart because of the scarcity of records in the western CT/eastern NY region at that time. It's not a part of any other Ray line in all of New York or New England and could easily be confused with others.

Andrew and Ann (Unknown) Foster of Andover, MA

This is a mystery due to the advanced age of Andrew Foster and his wife, who was not an Alcock.

Elizabeth Bourne, wife of Samuel Hall, of Rehoboth, MA

Elizabeth (Bourne) Hall has been misattributed before and is a mystery.

Jacob Hall of Barnet, VT and Shipton, Quebec

Jacob Hall of VT and Shipton, Quebec is an often misassigned son of a fictional father Daniel when his father was Enoch Hall, Sr. of Northfield, MA and Newbury, VT. The History of Barnet, Vermont by Frederic Palmer Wells is wrong- Daniel, Elijah and Jacob were all brothers and Enoch Sall, Sr. was their father. DNA evidence clearly associates them all with George Hall of Taunton.

Jabez (Gray) Warren of Brimfield, MA and Lebanon, CT

Perhaps the most famous mystery of my family, one that has been researched endlessly by several genealogists over the course of over 100 years. Raeola Ford Cooke and Kathleen Fenton combined worked on it for over 50 years. With DNA we now know Jabez Warren was not a Warren but a Gray paternally, although his mother could have been a Warren.
