Today we’re announcing two new sketches in Western Massachusetts Families in 1790.  The new sketches focus on John Watkins of Partridgefield (married Elizabeth Bowker) and Samuel Dibble of Mount Washington, MA (married first Lydia Lord, second Sarah Downs).

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.
