    1. [CTNEWLON] TV series "Turn" as a peek into Revolutionary and Loyalist 1770s
    2. Julie
    3.   forwarded from anothre list - thought you might find it interesting   ----- Forwarded Message ----- From: John Carpenter <[email protected]> To: [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected] Sent: Saturday, April 19, 2014 7:04 PM Subject: (Upper Canada Genealogy) TV series "Turn" as a peek into Revolutionary and Loyalist 1770s   For those who haven't discovered it yet, I'm sharing some links related to a new television series that's set in 1778-era British Army-occupied Long Island. Of course it's a TV drama, and some historical details may not be as accurate as we would like, but I find it generally well done and representing the spirit of the times. Those who have studied Colonial history and have traced their family trees to that time already have a huge advantage for understanding this remarkable story. A main theme of the show is the personal conflict and divided family loyalties between those who share the American patriot/rebel vision, those who support King and Country, and those who just want to be left alone to make a living. The cable-resident American Movie Channel (AMC) introduces a new episode at 9 PM Eastern time each Sunday. There are other repeat showings during the week. I don't know what the equivalent Canadian and British cable channel would be. Would someone please post that information? Watching "Turn" isn't going to solve anyone's research brick-wall problems, but it can provide some perspective and context for our family history work.

    2. Julie
    3. Good morning - let me just say that I have never used this website before and am not affiliated with it by any means. That being said, I have gone through all of the books I can get online for Chautauqua county, ny (I found a list on one of their websites) and this list has a few that I didn't know about - granted they are chapters of a bigger book but maybe I can find an elusive ancestor in there.  http://www.betweenthelakes.com/catalog.htm It looks like they have a lot on NY and CT.  One more resource for you :-) I plan on trying the free sites first (heritagequest & Archive.org) since they look like they are before copyright. good luck Julie tustin, ca

    3. The marriage was in NYC in 1837. What I need is an 1850 census for the family. I am sure they were not in New York State 1850-1859. In 1860 the family turns up in Brooklyn with a 16 year old servant from New Haven. There are too many mysteries about this family that will only be solved by the 1850 census

    1. [CTNEWLON] Coggswell Thompson MInor
    2. Charlie King
    3. -------------------------------------------- Hi All, Does anyone have an idea where Coggeswell Thompson Minor, who married Sally Brown in 19 December 1824 in Stonington, might have gotten his 'Thompson' middle name? Two of his daughters married Thompson men: Lucy married Nathan W Thompson in 1844 and Martha married James Henry Thompson in 1852. Also Sarah Thompson, the daughter of my gg grandfather Joseph Loomer Thompson, was working for Coggeswell as a housekeeper, in 1870. Coggeswell was about 70 years old at that time. Anyone have any information on who the parents of Nathan W Thompson and James Henry Thompson were? I think there has to be a connection between Coggeswell and a Thompson family, but I can't find one. Thanks for the help. Thanks, Charlie King gg grandson of Joseph Loomer Thompson

Issue New London County Discussion Group and RI Genealogical Yahoo Group :  I am sharing this with the discussion group from New London County, Connecticut;  as the Thurstons have family ties to New London County, Connecticut.  The R.I. e-mail is obvious.   While buried in Cedar Grove Cemetery in New London, Benjamin Babcock Thurston, was my town's  only R.I. Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, he interestingly served in both the state legislatures of Connecticut and Rhode Island. Check out http://bioguide.congress.gov/scripts/biodisplay.pl?index=T000255,. If that does not work go to http://bioguide.congress.gov/biosearch/biosearch.asp.A fund established by the family and I believe this same Benjamin Thurston above set it up with the Town Of Hopkinton above was given to the town to maintain the cemetery. His father and mother Jeremiah Thurston and  Sarah/Sally Babcock are interred in the cemetery which is the George Thurston Lot, (Hopkinton Historical Cemetery #17),located on Route #3 in Hopkinton, at telephone pole #218. Jeremiah like his son Benjamin was Lt. Governor of Rhode Island. Jeremiah was Hopkinton's  first Postmaster. Benjamin Thurston, the well known patent attorney, I believe was the first Benjamin Thurston's son? I recall he lived in Providence? The last of three Lt. Governors from Hopkinton was Edwin R. Allen. In Allen's case his service as Lt. Governor was while he was also Hopkinton Town Clerk.  The Babcock Genealogy of 1903 by Stephen Babcock, M.A., on Page 89 notes Sally with birth and death dates and her marrying Jeremiah Thurston. Nothing on their children. Cemetery names Sally as Sarah. I am a Babcock family member on my maternal side.  I am in Ashaway, R.I., Free Library at moment.   With that background the Town of Hopkinton has custody of funds for this cemetery, it is not enough to take down a badly  deteriorated tree that could damage the gravestones in the small cemetery. A jar is in the Hopkinton Town Hall, at One Town House Road, Hopkinton, RI 02833 for donations or you can Contact Richard Prescott, Hopkinton Historical Association President at  [email protected] . I  and another Hopkinton Town Council Member recused, (didn't participate), ourselves from discussing this at a town council meeting recently, as we are also board members of the Hopkinton Historical Association.  Neither the town nor historical association has a legal obligation to the cemetery.  In closing, I hope I will not get in trouble posting this e-mail.   I suggest immediate consideration. I referred to Hopkinton Cemetery Book by Gayle E. Waite and Lorraine Tarket-Arruda as well as the Babcock Genealogy for this e-mail. Very truly yours, Scott Scott Bill Hirst Member, Hopkinton Town Council Board Member, and Past President Hopkinton Historical Association Descendant of Freemen that founded Hopkinton in 1757.   Scott Bill Hirst 20 Maple Court Ashaway,RI 02804-1300 USA (401)377-4643/Cell: Quick Response Needed (401)450-6230 Note:Telephone if you need quick reply.
