A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE
TOLLAND COUNTY, CONNECTICUT
to the Treasure Chest of Memories
from the Town of Gilead, CT
Connecticut......a small rural community located
within the township of Hebron, has long been in the
hearts and minds of those who have either lived there or
visited family and friends there. My name is Linda Pingel
and I want to welcome you to this treasure trove of
memories from this small community. This site is a part
of the USGenWeb Project and is a "spin-off" (so
to speak) of the Hebron genealogy web site that I also
host for USGenWeb. The small community of Gilead seems to
be somtimes lost amongst the genealogical information for
the larger township of Hebron. So, when I was approached
with an offer to publish anecdotes, school stories and
personal stories from Gilead's past, I immediately jumped
into gear. A volunteer, Thomas Adams, has graciously
offered to author and submit stories from his youthful
past and/or pictures plus stories that should be either
historically worthwhile or should result in fond memories
and recollections by anyone whose lives were influenced
by life in this small town.
Please understand that Thomas Adams holds the copyright on these stories, and although one can assume that his material may be used in your personal genealogical family files.....they are not to be sold for profit. It might be prudent to contact Thomas Adams before copying any of his information. And, of course, if you have enjoyed any of his stories, you might also like to contact him with a "thank you."
Do not be discouraged by the lack of quantity (to date). Stories will be added on a regular basis as Tom is able to develop them.
