Western Massachusetts Families in 1790: 3 new sketches

An image from Francis Henry Underwood’s Quabbin; the story of a small town with outlooks upon Puritan life. The town of Quabbin became the town of Greenwich before it was swallowed by the Quabbin Reservoir.

Today we’re announcing three new sketches in Western Massachusetts Families in 1790 featuring Joshua Crosby (Greenwich), Elijah Smith (Bethlehem) and Benjamin Kelton (Leyden).

This study project focuses on individuals 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.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making this update possible.
