You are of the American Connecticut Churchill line. The information on your gggrandmother Mary from “The Churchill Family in America” (CFA) is shown below.

CFA generally only carries male lines forward so we have little information on female descendants. You say Nellie Mary HOUGH your ggrandmother was a child of Mary.

I have just joined on to the Churchill list and I am looking for information on Mary CHURCHILL who married Charles HOUGH. Mary was b 1 Apr 1850 in Almont, MI, d 25 Oct 1921 and married Charles on 26 Mar 1871. Their daughter, Nellie Mary HOUGH is my great Grandmother. Nellie married Franklin Dell ALYEA.

Look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely, Kathy
