Today we’re announcing two new sketches in Western Massachusetts Families in 1790.  The new sketches focus on Noah Church of New Marlborough (m. Lucy Holcomb) and Matthew Williams of Sandisfield (m1. Grace Smith, m2. Mary _____). Three existing sketches were updated as well: Prince Williams of Greenwich, John Gibbs of Greenwich and Samuel Hurlbut of Westhampton.

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.

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