HAWKINS-FAMILY LINE

Sherinda Frost and Brandon Max Hawkins get married today!  Well, today is the big day for Brandon and Sherinda.  Looking forward to a great wedding and reception.

WOODEN/COTTON-FAMILY LINE

BURR/GOLD/COTTON/WOODEN/BRIDGFORTH/DAY
Capt Seth Samuel Burr
is 315 years old today, born in 1694.  We talked about Seth a few days ago.  Seth is the boys' 8th great-grandfather.  He married Elizabeth Wakeman, his first wife in 1722 and begot 11 children with Ellen Burr being the 8th child born.  Ellen married Abel Gold in Fairfield, CT in 1754 and begot their 3rd child, Talcott Gold in 1759.

WALKER/COTTON/WOODEN/BRIDGFORTH/DAY
Marshall Walker
is 252 years old today, born in 1757 in Wales, Massachusetts.  He married Hannah Dunbar and they are the boys' 6th great-grandparents.  Their 4th child is Cady R. Walker, born in 1795 and later married Electa Sparks to beget Almira Walker in 1814.  Almira married Samuel Cheney Cotton in 1834 in New York and later begot Hubbard Cotton in 1838.  Almira Walker congers up images of rubies and sapphires, not diamonds and emeralds.  I envision her in a black lacy dress with jet black hair and a fan covering her face.  Her long hair is held up by a sapphire encrusted broach and she wears dark red lipstick.  Just me?
