Meet the family for February 11, 2011


John Baskerville Bridgforth

John Fenner
is 380 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

Richard Hall and Mary Anthony's
366th 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
