I have been reading a book called "the unquiet" author John Connely and i was wondering if the book is based on a true story. In the book it reads that a few families moved to Gilead and made it their home and community, there was a massive stone church which is the centre piece of the settlement. I would be grateful if anyone could give me any more information on this topic. Thank you so much.

An ancestor of mine, namely Jacob Skinner married a Phebe BUCK according to 1790 family records, in Hebron and they removed to Chenango County, NY. However, under " Marriages Prior to 1800 from the records of The Second Congregational Church organized in May, 1748 at Gilead" I see reference made to Jacob Skinner marrying a Phebe Palmerter. Can anyone give me any clue as to why we have the name BUCK but it may be PALMERTER?!

This has been a "brick wall" for ages and it would be fun to have it straightened out.

I am seeking the source and answer to the following:   The date and place of death of Jordon Post, 1st husband of Phebe Lay. I have information showing it as 20 Jan 1748 in Hebron but I need something official such as a vital record. Also, I need the date and place of birth of Phebe Lay, wife of Jordon Post, said to be from Lyme, Ct., married in Hebron 14 Nov 1703. Information says that the birth was 13 Jan 1683/4 but again I have nothing "official" . There were several Phebe Lays with dates that do not jibe. This one evidently married Bennoni Trumbull in her second marriage.

In about 1780 several families from Hebron, CT moved to Lyme, NH and then on to Thetford, VT which is just across the CT River. Among the families making the move was my ancestor Peter Post, b. in Hebron in 1736, m. Mary Thompson 1757 and had six children all born in Hebron. Peter Post d. at Lyme in 1811.

I am looking for information about Hebron in regard to my 6g grandparents, Jonathan Sackett, b. 20 Mar 1696 in Westfield, Mass., and his wife Ann Filer, b. 12 Sep 1705 in Windsor, Conn. According to the information I have so far, they were married in Hebron on 23 Jan 1724 and had 8 children. I'm wondering if there was an epidemic of some kind in Sep and Oct 1749, because at least three, maybe four, of their children died during those two months, ages 6 through 9. They apparently moved to Litchfield County, Conn. sometime after 1749. Both Jonathan (1773) and Ann (abt 1787) died in Warren, Litchfield Co. Does anyone know of such an event around 1749? And does anyone know of  Sackett graves in cemeteries in Hebron?

PORTER: I am searching for info on a David PORTER (I need his wife's name and his children names and their date of birth and who they married) who was on the 1800 census for the Town of Coeymans, Albany Co., NY. I believe he was in Dutchess Co., NY before he migrated to Albany Co., NY. He probably migrated to Albany Co., NY ca. 1790. He lived next to my 4th ggrd. Sylvanus KELLY. A dau. of David PORTER may of married my 3rd ggrd Sniffin KELLY in 1801. Two of David PORTER sons, David Jr. and a William were living next to David PORTER Sr., also. David PORTER was in Dutchess Co. by 1766. He was listed on a tax list for the southern Precinct, which is now Putnam Co., NY. (formed from Dutchess Co., NY in 1812). David served in the 7th Regiment of the Dutchess Co. Militia. He was a Lieutenant. Also on the tax lists were a John (first shows up in 1759), Joseph (1742 -when shows up), Joshua (1756- when shows up), Nathaniel (1741/42 when shows up), Robert (1761-when shows up), and William PORTER (1760- when shows up). A David and John PORTER are
still on the tax lists in what is now Putnam Co., NY in 1772-1779. Some folks from what is now Putnam Co., NY migrated to the town of Coeymans in Albany Co., NY ca. 1790.

I see that there was a David PORTER (b. 1708 in Windsor, CT. d. 1761 in Hebron, CT) who married a Ruth MACK in 1739 in Hebron, CT. They had a son David Jr. b. 1743 in Hebron. Do you know if this David Jr. migrated to Dutchess Co., NY? What other children did David and Ruth have? Do you know who this David Jr. married and what the names of their children were and their date of birth? I also noted that the ggrd (John PORTER) of the David PORTER who m. Ruth MACK had children by the names of Nathaniel, John, and Joseph (same first names that show up on the tax list in Dutchess Co., NY as stated above). So the David PORTER who was in Dutchess Co., NY by 1766 and on the 1800 census for the town of Coeymans, Albany Co., NY must be a descendant of the PORTER family of Windsor, Hartford, CT and Hebron, Tolland, CT.  I sure would appreciate any help that anyone can give me. Thanks very much!

Hi, this is to Doug Peters (whose e-mail is bouncing). It seems that we may be in the same family! My husband's family is as follows:
Kent LaRue and Wilma Peters - grandfather
John and Alzina Peters - G Grandfather
Samuel and Dorcas Peters - GG Grandfather
John and Esther Peters - GGG Grandfather
The lineage goes on but I'm not sure if it's the right connection since we haven't verified John and Esther's parents yet:
Samuel and Huldah Peters - GGGG Grandfather
Joseph and Deborah Peters - 5G Grandfather
John and Mary Peters - 6G Grandfather
William and Mary Peters - 7G Grandfather
Andrew and Mercy Peters - 8G Grandfather
William and Elizabeth Peters - 9G Grandfather

We believe that the reason the Peters left Hebron, CT and moved to Ernestown, CAN was because they became Loyalists. Thanks

Their son Ebenezer Buck and wife Deborah moved to Hebron and raised their family in the early 1740's. They were active in the New Haven 2nd Church in Hebron. Ebenezer Jr(b. Feb. 1750) was married in this same church in Oct 1784. I found on the net that the early church records were burnt. It didn't say for what period. I would love to find the church records and Christening date for Ebenezer. Ebenezer Buck Sr, was believed to have been a deacon.

Reuben P. and Betsey GODFREY moved sometime between 1790 and 1800 from New London to Hebron with their children including sons Benjamin P. and Reuben. The families lived there into the 1820’s. Reuben Jr. moved to Sweden, Monroe Co., New York between 1810-1830. Benjamin moved to Canterbury, Windham Co. between 1820 and 1830, probably with his father Reuben P. Before 1840 they moved on to Groton, New London Co.. Any information on the family is welcome, but specific questions are: What happened to daughters Polly, b. Oct. 21, 1777 and Jennettee, b.

I have searched the web--up one side and down the other--unsuccessfully, for any mention of this prolific WEBSTER, who was enumerated in the 1790 Federal Census, in Hebron, Tolland County, CT, with a wife (presumably). a son, and four daughters. No Martin WEBSTER was enumerated in the 1800 Federal Census in any state, nor was there an obvious widow enumerated in Hebron, CT, in 1800.

There is no mention of a Martin WEBSTER in the authoritative "History and Genealogy of the Governor John WEBSTER Family of Connecticut", nor is there any mention of this family in the BARBOUR Index.

He apparently belonged to the First Congregational Church of Hebron, CT, the records of which--at least up to 1787--were burned. There were other early WEBSTER families in Hebron, CT, but they belonged to the Gilead Congreational Church. These are the WEBSTERS who are included in the aforementioned WEBSTER Genealogy and in the BARBOUR Index.

What became of this Martin WEBSTER? Who was his wife? Who were his children? Are there any Hebron, CT land, cemetery, or probate records that would shed some light on this matter? Could Ruby WEBSTER (m. Justus BROWN), Jane WEBSTER (m. Andrew BROWN), and Philotha WEBSTER (m. Abraham BROWER)--all of whom lived in Herkimer County, NY, Montgomery County, NY, and/or Otsego County, NY--been daughters of this Martin WEBSTER?

I am looking for any info concerning the MOREY family of Hebron, CT. Specifically, I am wondering if anyone has any info regarding Thomas MOREY (b. 1788, Hebron).

My cousin and I are researching the TARBOX family to whom we are related. We have found our Godfrey TARBOX, then our Solomon TARBOX in Hebron. Our line comes through Solomon and Asenath PHELPS to their son Zenas who married Phoebe ? in Hebron and then immigrated to New York state and had a son named John. From John we are 5th removed. We have found most of the siblings to Zenas in Hebron. From there we are still researching. A cousin goes to Hebron from time to time to research and has found a good many of the TARBOX's. If anyone has any information on Zenas or Phoebe? we sure would appreciate a quick e-mail from them. Thank you in advance.

I am researching Nathan FULLER and his wife Hulda EDWARDS (of Coventry). They are listed in the Barbour Collection as having married in Hebron on 12 Dec 1757. I am descended from them through their 1st born son, Nathan Jr, who is also listed in the Barbour Collection as having been born in Hebron on 10 Jun 1759. I have uncovered a fairly complete account of Nathan Fuller (the son) including he and his father's service in the Revolutionary War along with his and his wife's requests for pensions, which were granted. Nathan Jr. married Hannah Welch, 18 Jun 1786, in Theford, VT after Nathan Sr. had moved to Orange County, VT.

If anyone has further information on Nathan FULLER, Sr. and how he came to be in Hebron in the 1750's I would certainly be interested in corresponding with you and sharing my 8 forward generations. Thank you.

Looking for information regarding the descendants of Seth Sutton (1705-18Apr 1784) of Hebron, CT. In particular the descendants of his sons John (b. 23 May 1733) and David (b. 26 Dec 1736; m. Phebe Peters 25 Jun 1769).

I have a John Sutton (b. ca. 1774/5) who settled in Salem's Bridge (modern day Naugatuck, CT). He was a member of the Episcopal Church at Gunntown in Salem's Bridge. I do not know if there is a connection to the Suttons of Hebron, but would like to check out all possibilities, especially if the Hebron clan was Episcopalian.

Other Suttons in the Waterbury area during my John's time were Henry Sutton of Watertown, CT, Isaac Sutton of Waterbury, CT (b. ca. 1754), and William Sutton of Cheshire, CT. These may be siblings/relatives of my John and may also be connected to the Hebron Suttons.

Thank you.

Moses and Dority Yeamons witnessed a deed of Joseph Dewey on 4 Apr 1728. Later, Moses Yeomans "of Hebron" purchased land in Colchester. The Moses of Colchester who married Sarah Pratt (1738) in Colchester is said to be the son of Edward and Thankful (Bidwell) Yeomans m. 5 Sep 1716. The Moses who witnessed the deed cannot be son of Edward. Was he the same who m. Sarah Pratt? Was Dority a first wife, a sister? Can anyone identify this "extra" Moses? Any info appreciated.
