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.

Barb, I have an aunt who is a Stebbins. She married my mother's brother. I had read a lil about the Stebbins family that was present at the Deefield Massacre in 1704. Are you connected to this family at all? I'm wondering if my aunt is, and would someday like to research her line, if I can ever find the time : )

Barbara Poole said...

I'm sure it is the same family. The above Rowland's granddaughters are my directs, so I don't have the line for long. There are a lot of Stebbins in Deerfield, I remember hearing about them yrs. ago. Here is a link I just found. http://thestebbins.com/ancestry/rowland-stebbins-history/

Thanks for the link Barb : ) If and when I ever have the time (thinking I better make time), I will sit down with my aunt and interview her in regard to her Stebbins : )

Cool! Not only are you and I connected through Samuel Abbe, but I'm also a descendant of Rowland Stebbins (Thomas Stebbins and Hannah Wright -> Samuel Wright Stebbins -> Thomas Stebbins -> Abner Stebbins -> Hedsidiah Stebbins -> Betsy Stebbins married Benjamin Barrus, and it was Barrus all down to my mother from there).

Hi Joypop, I see we are related twice, once through Abbe and now Stebbins. And, I bet there will be a few more lines. It's always exciting to meet another cousin. Thanks for writing.
