The New Haven Family

Catamount Tavern where Colonel Stark planned for the Battle of Bennington

Catamount Tavern where Colonel Stark planned for the Battle of Bennington

This is Catamount Tavern in Bennington, Vermont where the Allen boy’s possibly met to plan the capture of Ticonderoga in the Revolutionary War. I included it in my imaginary musings in the chapter “New Haven.” (See the page “New Haven” found above.) The family links to Sarah Payne Smith (who married Calvin Croy) were William Payne, Richard Little and Joan Walker, Henry Grimes, John Payne and Mary Little, Thomas Carnes, Joseph Grimes and Deborah Stebbins,  William Payne (2) and Esther Carnes, Christopher Grimes and Abigail Williams, and finally Samuel Payne and Abigail Grimes. New Haven Family Sheets a PDF document

A note to the family members who received the book: There is significantly more information here about the Grimes family of Wethersfield, Connecticut. I also discovered that Esther did not die in childbirth but went on to have more children. And I really loved that part of the book, too! Still, a new story emerged about Christopher and Abigail who lost all but one child, Abigail Grimes, in an epidemic, and so named their next child Comfort.
