Connecticut River Valley and "sister list":

As usual this is being sent to several list blind copy so you will
only get what you subscribe to not all 12 lists.

I list only names and dates of early settlers and up to the War of
1812...no later.

Do not ask me to do look ups for Wilbraham as all the names are
listed below.

Spelling is exactly as shown in the book...no changes made
