Family Felch and a Converging on Ohio Update

FIND YOUR “REAL THING!” Here is mine:from the Williamstown records found in Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988. I am fictionalizing their story. What stories are buried in your family’s long ago time?

As promised in my previous post, I have researched and updated the now broken brick wall of Amy Felch who married Zerah Payne in Maine. They, soon after, moved to Coshocton County, Ohio, and were the grandparents of Sarah Angelina Payne Smith who married my great grandfather, Calvin Croy. Use the search box on the right to find out more about these family members and the research to back my findings.

 

I have also updated the Ohio page which can be reached at the very top of my website. I rectified an error that excluded the Pennsylvania family sheets and added what you see below.

Again, I encourage you to go beyond name searches and search the written records themselves, when available. Most of the Felch research, beyond what I discussed in the previous post, came from the Massachusetts Vital and Town Records, an accumulation of the Town and City Clerk records of MA (found on line through Ancestry and Family Search).

This information is so complete and wide ranging that I decided to take a detour. Since I knew the town of residence for Samuel and Abigail Payne while they lived in Massachusetts (Williamstown), I went to the town records themselves and found the actual longhand record of their children’s births! I’d had the indexed records for a long time, but what a treat to see the real thing!

Here are the results of my Felch family foray.

Here are the family sheets with births, deaths, and important detail that I have discovered so far. Any comments that help further the investigation are welcome. To err is human, and I have surely been human in my attempts. FELCH Family Sheet
