Hi Lori French,
I have an Asa HOWE b 1756 Middleton, MA, m Hepsibah PEABODY b 1766 Middleton MA,
d 1836. Their children were Benjamin b 1794, Lydia, Hannah, Mark, George and
Don't know if this is helpful to you.
Also, my FRENCH ancestry starts with Thomas Edward FRENCH 1562-1613, m
Anne/Agnes OLMSTEAD 1566-1624. My French descendancy from there is:
William French 1603-1681
+ Elizabeth Symmes 1605-1668
John French 1635-1712
+w-3 Hannah Burrage 1667
Hannah French 1667
+John Kittredge 1666
My French line stops with Hannah French b 1667, but if we go back far enough, I
bet we are cousins :-)
