I am looking to expand my information on the Stiles & Bancroft connection. I noticed in the "Spelman Genealogy" that the daughter of Roger Stiles married Lemel Bancroft in the 1700s. They made their home in Granville, Massachusetts & removed to Bedford, Mass later.

However, I am seeking information on Sarah STILES b: 1661 in Springfield, Hampden, Massachusetts (I understand this used to be Enfield, Connecticut) & Ephraim BANCROFT b: 1656 in Windsor, Hartford, Connecticu & they married in 1681 in Windsor. I believe her father is John STILES... but, that is all I know.

Any help would be appreciated.

Using the Family Tree CD's I've searched through all the Bancrofts I can find. It seems that this is a reasonably common surname both in the UK & USA. One fact that really stands out is that all of the US Bancroft lines seem to originate with the Bancroft/Hollingsworth marriage in Swarkstone Derbyshire during the 16th century. The latest few generations of the English Bancroft line (of which I am a member) were inhabitants of Nottinghamshire but would appear to have moved there during the industrial revolution to produce mainly coal & lace.

However, before moving to Nottingham the ancestors I have traced appear to originate in villages very close to Swarkstone & this would indicate that quite probably I am descended from the same branch of the family but from the ones that did not sail on "the James" to America.

Has anybody any idea how many Bancrofts emigrated in the 16th -&- 17th centuries?

In the meantime (& with a little licence) Hello cousins!

Hello: I at long last am following up on a previous inquiry!! I previously asked you if your Hanna's had connections with Hanna's in Eastern Ontario. You replied that you did not think so & kindly shared some of your information with me.I found one part of your tree very interesting . It deals with the daughter of Clarisa Sidney Hanna who married Louis Kayser Wood. Emma S. Wood married a Stinson. Stinsons are a big part of our Hanna tree. Do you know the name of the Stinson???We have Stinson's who are connected to our tree living as far west as Kansas. Could one of these Stinson's have met up with your Hanna's??

As a side note I would also like to say that John Hanna left Ontario, Canada & went to the Nevada silver mines. He took a steamer from New York & went to California & then on to Nevada. He was not heard from in quite a while that William Hanna (his brother ) went down to find him. William also entered the silver rush & was killed near Silver City Nevada in a mine collapse. William is buried in Goldhill(Close to Silvercity I am told)Nevada.John is to this day an enigma. Do you have a John in your line that may be him??I know this is slim pickings & an attempt to find the pin in a haystack but have no information to go on after he gets to the mine fields in Nevada. Thank you for your reply to my first quiry. I appreciate any information you may send.

I am looking for Sarah W. Ledyard who lived in Ft. Smith, Arkansas 1850. She was head of the household and put that she was born in Ohio on the census list. She had a son 1 month old, William C. and a daughter, Martha Pauline that was 1 year old.

1860 census, Mrs. Ledyard was still in Fort Smith, Arkansas with only Martha. Perhaps William had died.

1870 census, she was 59 years old, living with her daughter, Mrs. Alexander H. Lamb, in Butler, Bates County, Mo. Martha Pauline died in 1874 and Mrs. Ledyard would have been 83 if still living. She is not mentioned in the obituary so she may have died before then. I do not have her husbands name.

Does that fit in with any information you have on Ledyard? Thank you.

Hey everyone, my mothers name is Mary Evelynn Plumlee and her fathers (my father) name was George Dewey Plumlee. George died in Cameron, MO.

Please let me know if you have any information back further on the George Dewey Plumlee line or if we are related. Thanks.


My Annie Plumlee(b. 1828 SC) married Andrew(Andy)J.Brown(b.1824 Tn) Nov.7,1846, Van Buren Co.Tn. I am conveniced that there is some connection between my Annie and the Plumlee family living there at the time (the one that went on to Ark, Joel, ect). But have not yet found the connection. Shortly after their marriage they moved to Morgan Co Al and were living in the 1850 Census a few houses from who I am certain was Annie's mother Phobe Plumlee(b.1799 NC), her father(b.NC) was dead by this time and the younger children were still at home with her mother. These other children were Elizabeth,Martha, John, Jonathon and James Plumlee. If this rings a bell with anyone would love to hear from you.

I am researching the Gerard Spencer line. More accurately, I am looking for information regarding his brothers. I have traced Gerard up to William Augustus Spencer who perished on the Titanic. I have a beautiful old photo, that when my grandmother gave it to me she said "Cherish it, it is your great uncle who perished on the Titanic."

I have lots of information to share on William Augustus' brother Lorrillard, but can't find mention of another brother, so I am assuming my grandfather was a cousin rather than a brother...

My Grandfather was Paris Albert Spencer, died in Bangor Maine 12/10/1951 at the age of 53. I do not have his birth date. His parents were Ralph A. Spencer, and Nellie Inman, both born in Maine, Nellie died in Maine, and Ralph may have died in California.

If anyone has any information to help me make the connections I would appreciate it, and will gladly share my information.

I am researching Daniel STRATTON poss. b. 22 Nov 1783 Sherburn, Middlesex, MA and d. 1810-1817 m. 1806 in Vermont? to Zilpha PHIPPEN b. 8 Mar 1789 Westminster, Windham, VT d. 5 Apr 1859 in Windham Co., VT. (her 2nd marriage was to Job PARKHURST)

His children were:

1) Isaac STRATTION b. ca 1807 and d. 30 Dec 1885 in Westminster, Windham, VT. He married Marilla Witherell Apr 27, 1828 in Westminster.

2) Daniel STRATTON b. 14 Feb 1810 in Surry, Cheshire, NH or Westminster, Windham Co., VT

m. Elizabeth CHILDS in 1840. I believe they are the Daniel and Elizabeth buried in Saxton River Cemetery, Rockingham, Windham, VT.

This is not the Daniel STRATTON who married Jane Stickney and lived in Newfane, Windham, VT.

I am aware of the notation in the Book of Strattons by Harriet Russell Stratton about this family. I am hoping there is another researcher out there to share ideas/information about this man.

Hi, I was hoping maybe someone had some suggestions for me. I am.researching the STRATTON name but I don't have much to go on. My.GGGrandmother was Sarah Catherine STRATTON. She was born in Virginia according to one of the censuses but they claim to have no record of her. She was born in 1856. I know her death date, but they returned the check from Kansas with no help at all, not even a note telling me the record didn't exist. I know her father's name was James STRATTON but her mother was an indian & no one ever called her anything but "the indian". So I don't have her name. Can anyone help.

I have been trying to find where my Strattons came from. Mine are first mentioned in the 1860 census (I think that's the one) in Monmouth County, New Jersey. My ggggrandfather's name was Loveman Stratton married to Susan Adams of Ireland & in that census they had 5 children. Have been searching for several years for the parentage of Loveman. In that same census, there is a George B. Stratton listed in another town, & am pretty sure they are related, but I just don't know how.

I'm a SWEET descendant of Robert-&-Joanna-John-&-Mary-John-&-Elizabeth- Henry-&-Elizabeth...and down. I found your site VERY useful. I should point out that the Henry Sweet-Mary Griffin-Elizabeth Walker profile needs a second look. Did Henry have 2 wives in the same timeframe, or were there actually 2 Henrys from the marriage of John Sweet and Elizabeth Jeffery(Jefferies)? Henry -&- Elizabeth had at least 5 children between 1693 -&- 1703. The marriages were only a year apart...but both women had children by Henry long after that! I'll look into this further, maybe you should, too. The LDS (Morman Chruch) was a key source of my information. Nevertheless, God bless you for all you've done here! Hope to communicate further in the near future!


I am also researching the Sweet Family:- John Thomas Sweet -Born Jan.21,1864,Wales and I think his father was Thomas Louis Sweet who died Oct.21.1914 and was married to Elizabeth Ainsworth born 1835 and died 1901.

Hi Jo,

I am researching John Joseph Whitford born circa 1810 Birmingham, died 1882 Alberton Victoria Australia, married 1850 Alberton to a Bridget Flynn born 1828 Kilkenny Ireland, died 1916 Greenmount Victoria.

John Joseph was a convict, arrived in Tasmania Aust. in 1830 on board the "Royal George". He was not the muster for Tasmania in 1841, may have been pardoned by then, or travelled to Victoria because he owned the "Travellers Rest Hotel" Alberton in 1850.

John Joseph and Bridget had the following family:- Anne 1851, John Joseph 1853, Catherine 1856, Thomas Augustav 1856 (twins), Ellen 1860, Margaret 1862, Daniel 1864, Emily Myra 1869, Michael Henry 1872.

Descendants and information would be appreciated if you can assist.
