Requesting information on residents of Krivanec Road. Circa 1950-1960. I was told by my father Joseph when we lived at the bottom of the green, that the family that owned the farm that used to have all the long horns, was related to us. We are trying to track our family geneology, and the descendants of that family, possibly the Krivanecs, may be related, or if there was other families that resided there in that time frame, I would like to see if the lines cross. Also trying to confirm that the road off of 84 to the left, after you crest the top of Willington Hill before the Booths house, where the old farm of the long horns is/was in fact, Krivanec Road. Thanks for the help.

Looking for the Mr Oakley that married Priscilla Marcy b. Nov 26, 1786, daughter of Zebediah Marcy(jr) and Phebe Pearl of Willington. Priscilla and Mr Oakley had at least two children, Phebe Pearl Oakley who married Hiram Barker in Willington, Nov 27, 1833 and William F Oakley who married Marietta Ames in Sturbridge, MA, May 9, 1839. Hiram Barker may have been born in Maine. There is very likely some connection to the Jesse/George SUMNER family of Windsor.
