Research Notes

  • Stetson Kindred Genealogical Index: 1-1-7-1-3
A. Of the first child of this family, N.M.S. says her name was Lois and that she married Joshua Stetson (1-1-7-1-2-2) while the Hanover History says her name was Deborah S. Stetson [3] Both born the same day, are they twins?
B. The Descendants lists a daughter, Joan who married a Mitchell [3], Family Search has a Joanna Loring, who was born in 1804, and who married Philip Brewster as Joanna L. Mitchell. I have combined them in this profile, pending further sources. rsl
C. I combined Alma and Almy Josselyn into one person. The two similarly named children were missing either Birth or Death records, and the dates seem to work out. Obviously more research is needed to clarify this rsl
