Today we’re announcing three new sketches in Western Massachusetts Families in 1790.  These new sketches focus on Alexander Berry from Pelham and Mary Cleveland and Jacob Chamberlin from Dalton.

Alexander Berry lived from 1747-1830 and married Martha “Patty” Smith.  They had five children.  Jacob Chamberlin lived from 1766 to about 1851.  He and his wife, Dorothy Cleveland had nine children.  Mary [Griffon] Cleveland was born in 1743/4 and died in 1812.  She married Ephraim Cleveland and together they had six children.

This study project focuses on individual enumerated in the 1790 census in historic Berkshire and Hampshire counties, also including modern Franklin and Hampden counties.  Sketches for this project are submitted to editor Helen Schatvet Ullmann, CG, FASG by NEHGS members and other interested researchers.  If you are interested in submitting a sketch for Volume 5, please review our project home page.
