New sketches in two New England study projects

Muddy Pond, Rutland, VT by William Henry Jackson (1861)

Today we’re announcing two new sketches and five updated sketches in two of our New England study projects: Western Massachusetts Families in 1790 and Early Vermont Settlers, 1700-1784.

George Butler of Pittsfield was added to our database Western Massachusetts Families in 1790.

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’ve also added Jonathan Bell of Tinmouth and Rutland to Early Vermont Settlers, 1700-1784.

We’ve updated the following sketches:

Emmons, Benjamin (Woodstock)
Kellogg, Joseph (Fort Dummer)
Sprague, Elkanah (Hartford)
Taylor, Samuel (Hartland)
Tilden, Stephen (Hartford)

Scott Andrew Bartley’s study project tracks heads of families who lived in Vermont prior to the Revolutionary War.  His sketches so far have focused on Windham and Windsor counties.

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