Subject: Richard CHURCH of Hadley, MA - 1600s
Date: Fri, 15 Jan 1999 21:04:27 EST


I have to believe there is more information available on Richard Church of
Hadley, MA. I certainly know there is more on the descendants. I restricted
my research mostly to my line.

I am a descendant through

I. Samuel & Mary CHURCHILL
G. Benjamin & Hannah DICKINSON
3. Esther & Joseph BARNARD
b. Hannah BARNARD & Jonathan HUBBARD

I sure would appreciate any assistance in locating additional information on
my CHURCH ancestors. Sources for the following are at the end.

Thanks.

Kim
