My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Surname Saturday -- JOHNSON, MEAD / MEED and SANGER

Elizabeth / Betsey Johnson is one of my "Brick Walls" and unlike some others, her ancestry is pretty much unknown. She was born Nov. 7, 1751 in Lynn, Massachusetts, married David Mead / Meed on October 21, 1773 in Lynn.  They had three children and moved to New Hampshire.  After his death, she married Abner Sanger and had seven children.  Her marriage record is written as: "Mrs. Elisabeth Johnson and David Meed, Oct. 21, 1773."  Does anybody know if that really meant she was previously married or was she an older single woman, and it was a title of respect (she was just 22)?

+ 2 i. ELIZABETH \ BETSEY JOHNSON was born 7 NOV 1751 in Lynn, Essex Co., Massachusetts, and died 19 MAR 1799 in Dublin, Cheshire Co., New Hampshire.
