Month, Day, Year:  AUGUST 3, 2010

We finally finished the index to the Wethersfield book, so here it is!  This should finish up our current stock of Connecticut books.

CT4 - CONNECTICUT CRAZY CRATE CT4  BOOK 1:  THE HISTORY OF ANCIENT WETHERSFIELD.  VOLUME 2 ONLY.  By Henry R. Stiles.  940 pages, 6" by 9", hardbound.  This is a very good facsimile of the 1904 edition.  New Hampshire Publishing Company in collaboration with The Wethersfield Historical Society, 1975.  This is the Genealogy and Biography Volume.  The one we genealogists like best!  Since the mid-1630s when a band of "adventurers" began farming the meadowlands along the Connecticut River, Wethersfield has been a vibrant, complex town.  Farming, far-reaching commerce sophisticated education, visceral politics, and a dynamic architecture not only co-existed, they flourished.  In Volume I Henry R. Stiles and Sherman W. Adams recorded the narrative history.  In this second volume, Stiles, working alone, approached the town's past through the genealogies and biographies of those first "adventurers" and of the thousands of inhabitants who eventually followed them.  The index, in small print, starts on page 929 with three columns on each page and runs to page 940.  Surnames appearing on 1, 2, 3, or 4 pages are not listed here even though that could be the entire sketch of just one or two families..  Spelling is not standard, but is published as it is recorded in this book.  Surnames with five or more pages are marked with the actual number of pages on which that surname appears: Abbe /Ab(b)y/ Abbey 10, Abbott 9, Ackley 5, Adams 81, Allen 33, Allis 7, Ames 10, Anderson 7, Andrews 34, Andrus/Andross 37, Appleton 5, Arnold 13, Atwood 15, Austin 7,  Avery 8, Ayrault 13, Backus 8, Bacon 9, Bailey 14, Baker 15, Balch 6, Baldwin 21, Ball 5, Barber/ Barbour 10, Barnard 17, Barn(e)s 23, Barrett 9, Bartholomew 5,  Bartlett 11, Bassett 5, Bates 12, Baxter 11, Beach 13, Beadle/ Beed(el/le) 9, Beckley 36, Beebe 11, Belden\Belding 135, Belknap 5, Bell 5, Benjamin 9, Bennett 6, Benton 33, Berry 6, Betts 8, Bidweell 28, Bigelow 14, Bingham 5, Bird 6, Bishop 7, Bissell 5, Blachleach 5, Blake 5, Bl(i/y)nn 73, Bliss 12, Boar(d)man 102, Boosey 10, Booth/e 10, Bostwick 7, Bosworth 6, Bowen 7, Brace/y 12, Bradfield 6, Bradford 9, Bradley 13, Brainard 12, Brewer 13, Brigden 6, Bristol 5, Br(o/u)(m/n)son 21, Brooks 23, Brown/e 37, Buck 66, Buell 9, Bulk(e)l(e)y 96, Bull 15, Bunce 23, Burnham 15, Burr 17, Butler 116, Buttolph 5, Cadwell 9, Cady 6, Caldwell 7, Callender 8, Camp 33, Canfield 5, Carey 8, Carrington 6, Carter 17, Case 18, Caswell 7, Catlin 5, Chadwick 5, Chamberlain 11, Champion 6, Chapin 26,Chaplin 7, Chapman 21, Chauncey 6, Chester 42, Child/s 6, Chittenden 7, Church 22,  Churchell 24, Churchill 27, Clapp 9, Clark 59, Clarke 11,

CT4 - CONNECTICUT CRAZY CRATE CT4:  BOOK 2HB AND BOOK 3SB.  See below.  FFB044  THE HISTORY OF THE TOWN OF STONINGTON, COUNTY OF NEW LONDON, CONNECTICUT FROM ITS FIRST SETTLEMENT IN 1649 TO 1900, WITH A GENEALOGICAL REGISTER OF STONING TON FAMILIES.  By Richard Anson Wheeler, member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society; Life Member and one of the Vice Presidents of the Connecticut Historical Society, and Life Member of The New London County Historical Society.  Originally published in New London, Connecticut in 1900.  This is a reprint by Genealogical Publishing Company in Baltimore, Maryland in 1977.  This reprint carries one short page of Corrections and Additions.
"The territory
that became the town of Stonington was included in the first patent of Connecticut granted by Robert, Earl of Warwick, in 1631 to William, Viscount, Say and Seal, the right honorable Robert, Lord Brook and others, acting therein by authority vested in him by Lord Charles, King of England, Scotland, France and Ireland.  The colony of Massachusetts, having furnished men and munitions of war for the conquest of the Pequot Indians in 1637, claimed an interest by right of conquest in all the lands held by the Pequots before their overthrow, and determined to occupy it in advance of any settlement on the part of the Connecticut authorities, though they had asserted jurisdiction as early as 1640-41-42 by granting lands thereof to Capt. John Mason and others.  But notwithstanding all this, Mr. John Winthrop, Jr. located himself at Pequot as early as 1645.  The next year the Massachusetts General Court gave Mr. Winthrop a commission to begin a plantation there in behalf of that colony.  Connecticut resisted the claims of Massachusetts, and in order to reach a peaceable settlement of all questions in dispute relative to jurisdiction, both colonies united in referring the whole matter to the Commissioners of the United Colonies, who, after an exhaustive hearing in the premises decided in favor of Connecticut."
The history of Stonington continues with historical data concerning the growth of the town, the effect of the Revolutionary War with listings of those who served;
Copies of Town Hall Meetings and decisions made.  Then the advent of the War of 1812, orders issued, a battle fought in Stonington, names of some who served.  Then the Civil War 1861-65 adds pages of names, and this part ends with a single page devoted to the Spanish American War.  "Two full companies of volunteers were recruited.  The heroism displayed by the American volunteers brought this war to a close in a very short time."  No further details are available in this book.
The Ecclesiastical History comes next with sketches of the churches.  Common Schools follows with the statement, "The founders of this state were educated men, and seeking for the best opportunities of educating their children the common school system was introduced in Connecticut.  The first law upon the subject was enacted by the town of New Haven March 25, 1641."
Details on the establishment of highways, bridges and ferries with an example of a toll schedule for crossing a bridge [Hghly amusing in today's world to read a schedule that would charge 2 cents for a
"foot person" to cross the bridge, 1 cent charge for sheep or swine-each!
  A man or horse was 5 cents.  For each coach or hack, or other four-wheeled carriage, drawn by two horses abreast was 35 cents, but each additional horse was 2 cents extra!  Information on the ship-building industry follows with a list of the ships [sloops, brigs, schooners, vessels, ships, three-masted schooners, barks, gunboats, pilot boats, ferry boats, steamers, and even an electric clipper ship with their names and dates] were built here.
Mills and Manufacturing, the first mill to be built here was built in 1662. Banking came along in the early 1800s.  Next were the Railroads, the Press followed with "The Journal of the Times n 1798.  Now,[1900] the Stonington Mirror, established in 1869 covers the news for this booming town.  The next chapter covers all Civil Officers.  Chances are good you may find your ancestor named to some civil office because there are pages of lists.  A single chapter is devoted to the Pequot Indians who were defeated, in many cases, but not all, by anyone they challenged.  Indian trbes of which there were several, fought against each other and then against the English.  A reservation was established for the Pequot Indians, but none of them live on the reservations established in Ledyard or in North Stonington by 1900.
The reservations do not, at the present time, contain a single wigwam house, nor a residence of any Pequot descendants.  A lage part of the Ledyard reservation has been sold wth the timber of the rest of it, and the avails thereof have been safely invested under the care and control of their overseers.  The North Stonngton reservation remains intact and is leased as pasture land and the yearly income of both reservations is applied by the overseers thereof for the benefit of the sick and feeble old men and women of both of the clans of the Pequots, wherever they may reside.  The rest of the book is the Genealogical Register of Stonington Families.  The major families covered with many pages each of lineages with names, dates and places begin with AVERY FAMILY 12 pages, BABCOCK FAMILY 12 pages, BALDWIN FAMILY 6 pages, BENNETT FAMILY 4 pages, BENTLEY FAMILY 3 pages, BILLINGS FAMILY 8 pages, BREED FAMILY 5 pages, BREWSTER FAMILY 2 pages, REV.
