    1. [DURANT] Re: Greetings
    2. Hi, I've been a member for some years but have not heard a word from anyone for some time.I'm related from a Thomas Durant who was in Plymouth, Ma in 1650 and his son George who married Elizabeth Blake in 1653. They moved to Middletown, Ct. Their son Edward (1661-1718) married Anna Hall around 1682. He was my 7th great Grandfather. I follow the line 2 more generations with Edwards until my 5th great grandfather married Ann Jackson and their 2nd daughter married a Phineas Cook. The Jackson family was well known in Newton, Ma and the Durant home is now a historic home there. It sounds as if my Durant line is very different from the other mentioned in another post. I'd love to correspond with anyone from my line. I'm missing a lot from the earliest Durants.Polly Furbush ----- Original Message ----- From: James Shuman <jshuman@telis.org> To: durant@rootsweb.com Sent: Mon, 14 May 2018 20:07:29 -0400 (EDT) Subject: [DURANT] Greetings Good afternoon fellow researchers! I have just recently been handed the “ownership” of this List, which I see has 112 members, including myself. I had hoped to find out a little more about this particular research list before posting online, but I guess the best way for me to learn things is to just ask. So, here goes: 1. A few tidbits about your “list owner” (that’s me). a. I’m 79 years old, retired, and have had a life long interest in genealogy research. b. I live in California, where I spent my adult career in education, primarily high school. c. I am interested in this list because one of my ancestors married a man with this surname in the east central Indiana region between the 1860 and 1870 censuses, and we have almost no information on who he was (including his first name), because he was deceased by the 1870 census. 2. We are told that Ancestry plans to restore all the Archives eventually, but they are working on the “more active” lists first. For this list, I haven’t found any archives yet. Have any of you found them, or shall we just assume that we are more or less starting from scratch on this list? 3. For those of you who remember the lists from a few years ago, your ability to post and receive messages will function nearly the same, although there are some changes, mostly behind the scenes. That is because Ancestry has invested several months of effort into transferring everything over to a new version of the Mailman program. 4. That’s why I’m here: to help when things misbehave and you can’t get things to do what you want or need. Just send a request my way. Please feel free to help get this list back in functioning order.

    3. I think she came over in 1846, married my g-grandfather Joseph Ecabert and settled in New Albany, Indiana.  They later moved to Vincennes, Indiana.  Thanks.

    1. Re: [DURANT] Edward DURANT b.1766, MA to TN? (Lookup in "The Durant Genealogy: A History of the Descendants of George and Elizabeth (__) Durant of Malden, Mass. and Middletown, Conn.")
    2. Polly Furbush
    3. I have Edward as the son of Dr, Edward Durant and Mary (Park). They had 8 children with an Edward as the 3rd who was born Sherbirn 19 April 1766. He married 1st Abigail Fuller and m2 ???. (no dates) He died Hilham, Tenn in 1855. I didn't include children or other information as he isn't a direct ancestor. My line goes from Dr. Edward's sister Abigail who married Phineas Cook. All my information came from the genealogy, Sibley's Harvard Graduates and Newton History. I will be going to NEHGS on Wed and will see what else the genealogy says. Are you adding your information on the South St Cemetery to the website www.findagrave.com? I hope so. Polly Furbush (pfurbush@rcn.com) ----- Original Message ----- From: "Robert J.

(Lookup in "The Durant Genealogy: A History of the Descendants of George and Elizabeth (__) Durant of Malden, Mass. and Middletown, Conn.") Durant genealogists: This rootsweb mailing list seems rather quiet, so I don't know if anyone will be able to answer my query. I am studying the South Street Cemetery in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, and I wonder if someone might be able to do a lookup in "The Durant Genealogy: A History of the Descendants of George and Elizabeth (__) Durant of Malden, Mass. and Middletown, Conn." (Baltimore, 1966). I have reason to believe some information I'm looking for may be there, and I don't at present have access to a copy. One of the occupants of the South Street Cemetery is little Polly Durant. Her headstone reads: Polly Durant, dau. / of Mr. Edward, and / Mrs. Nabby Durant, / who died Augt. 27 / 1794. Aged 3 years / 3 months & 21 days I'm trying to track down some basic information on all the people mentioned on the South Street Cemetery's gravestones, and so am looking for a _death date and place_ for her father and mother, Edward Durant and Nabby (Fuller) Durant. Here is a draft outline of what I have established: "Polly’s father Edward Durant was probably the son of Dr. Edward Durant and his wife Mary (Park) Durant of Newton, Mass., who had married 12 November 1761 [[in Newton or elsewhere??]]; Edward's date of birth was incompletely recorded in Newton but seems to have been fully set down, as 19 April 1766, in the town records of Sherborn (Newton VR, 1905: 58, 274; Sherborn VR, 1911: 34). Polly Durant’s mother Nabby (Fuller) Durant was born 14 July 1765 in Newton, the daughter of Joseph Fuller and Mindwell (Stone) Fuller, who had married 4 May 1756 in Newton (Newton VR, 1905: 74, 286). Edward and Nabby removed from Newton to Fitchburg sometime between Polly’s birth in Newton, 6 May 1791, and the birth of their first son, Thomas, 17 November 1792 in Fitchburg (Davis, 1899.2: 342–343)." Remarkably, I understand Edward and Nabby (Fuller) Durant may have migrated from Massachusetts to Tennessee some time after 1810. If anyone could look up this Edward Durant in the 1966 "Durant Genealogy" volume and let me know if there is sourced information there about him, and if it traces him from Massachusetts to Tennessee, I'd be very grateful. That would let me know if I need to track down a copy of the volume to study in more detail.

    1. [DURANT] Durant Open House
    2. Polly Furbush
    3. The Durant-Kendrick House in Newton, Mass. (Edward 1, Edward 2 who m. Anne Jackson, Thomas 3, Thomas 4) will be open for the first time this Sunday 12-5 as part of Historic Newton House tour. Until recently the house has been privately owned by Durant descendants. After this Sunday, May 23, the house will not be open again until a renovation has been done. I'm related though Edward and Anne (Jackson) Durant's daughter Abigail who married Phineas Cook and would be happy to correspond with anyone also related.

    1. [DURANT] Hatteras Island Family Reconstruction Project
    2. Roberta Estes
    3. Hatteras Island DNA Projects Hatteras Island (current Dare County, NC, former Currituck and Hyde) is a very unique place with an incredibly interesting history and geography as well. * Hatteras Island is the location where the Lost Colonists indicated that they went, to join their friends, the Croatoan Indians. * Hatteras Island has a long history of shipwrecks, with many families carrying the oral history that they descend from shipwreck victims. * Hatteras Island has an equally long oral history that many of the current residents descend from the original residents, the Croatoan (later the Hatteras) Indians. * Early records confirm his history in various ways. For example, by 1710, the Farrows, O'Neals, Hoopers and Wahabs were reported to be "half Indian and half English". * The isolated geography of Hatteras Island served to discourage a lot of movement to the island after the initial land grants were awarded and free/cheap land was no longer available. * The isolated geography prevented or discouraged intermarriage with people not island residents, creating a rather closed community, allowing us the unique opportunity to reconstruct the original island residents from their descendants today. I have compiled a list of early island surnames from deeds, wills, tax lists, militia and other documents. These surnames represent the early island residents up through about 1800. We would like to be able to reconstruct the ethnicity of the earliest island families, especially the wives whose surnames have been lost to time. Using DNA, we will be able to reconstruct those families and help people who cannot identify their ancestors' families to reconnect.
