Meet the family for February 11th


John Baskerville Bridgforth
is 66 years old today, born in 1944.  Known as Jack, he is the father of Andrew and Bryan Bridgforth and the husband of Deborah Wooden our 1st cousin. Jack is the youngest son of three born to Edward McPhail Bridgforth and Sudie Seay Bagley. We had a great visit with Jack and Debi last year and hope to have many more in the future.  Have a GREAT birthday Jack!!!!


John Fenner
is 379 years old today, born in 1631.  John is the boys' 10th great-granduncle, the brother of the youngest of the 7 siblings, Phoebe Fenner, the boys' 10th great-grandmother.  Phoebe married William Ward in Middletown, CT in 1660 and begot Phoebe Ward in 1663.  Phoebe married Samuel Hall and are the parents of the boys' 8th great-grandmother, Experience Hall.  Experience married Samuel Cotton.

Prudence Denison
died 198 years ago today in 1812 at age 94 in Stonington, New London, CT.  Prudence is the boys' 3rd cousin 9 times removed.  Her father is Daniel Denison of the Stonington, CT Denisons.  His mother is 1st cousin 11 times removed, Phebe Lay whose mother is Sarah Fenner sister of the aforementioned John Fenner.

Richard Hall and Mary Anthony's
365th anniversary is today married in 1645 when he was 24 and she was 22 years old in Middleton, CT.  Richard and Mary are the boys' 10th great-grandparents and the parents of the aforementioned Samuel Hall.  The path I show to the present is different because William Ward and Phoebe Fenner produced both Thomas Ward Sr. the boys' 9th great-grandfather and Phoebe Ward, the boys' 9th great-grandmother by different marriages of course. Thomas married Anna Tappin and begot Thomas Ward, Jr. who married Rebecka Birnham and they begot Rebeckah Ward who married William Cotton the boys' 7th great-grandfather and the son of the aforementioned Samuel Cotton and Experience Hall.  So Rebeckah Ward and William Cotton are 2nd cousins having the same great-grandparents
