RE: WIlliam Hare/Hair
Elton, Tried sending you an e-mail but had internet trouble. Wondering where you fit into the Hair family. Perhaps we could exchange notes.
My husband retired from the Army in '85, after 36 years. Thank you for your service. Dorothy

Elton, Thanks for your prompt reply. I have extensive info on William and Savilla Wheeler Hair. The photo posted on the web is probably from our family records as I sent it to a number of people searching the family and I found out later that several people posted it. The photo came out of the estate of Lewis Hair who is the grandson of William. I also have the list of all of their children. I have not found any records that verify his parents are either James or William although I found a photo with the names written on the back - William and ________ (not readable) Hair - parents of William and James.
Where are you connected in this family? Perhaps we can solve this together. Dorothy

WIlliam Hare/Hair
I noticed you left a msg for William Hair as a relative. My husband is a direct decendant of William. Do you have any verified information about his family - we are trying to locate the parents of William. Some researchers say it is William and others say James. I haven't had any luck verifying that yet. Do you have any info on this family that you can share? Thanks. Dorothy

RE: Elizabeth Holder
Well your information is absolutely INCORRECT. I don't care what you "show". You have no credible source to back up any of your information. You need to correct your info so that other people who just copy stuff and don't bother to verify their sources won't keep spreading misinformation.

Christopher Holder was born in 1631 and didn't come to America until 1656.

Christopher came to America on the SPEEDWELL in 1656.

Holder doesn't even MEET Mary Scott until AFTER he is BANISHED from MA and flees to Rhode Island by Gov. Endicott.

And they were married 12 Aug in England when he was banished by Gov Endicott.

And he married Hope Clifton in 1665.

" It has been said that he had four children by each wife, and that his second wife was Elizabeth Holder. One Christopher Holder ofOlveston, Co., Gloucester, England, came to Boston in 1656, but, since he espoused the views of the Quakers, he was banished in 1659 and fled to Newport, R.I. He married, 12 Aug. 1660, Mary Scott, sister of the famous Ann Hutchinson. Among his nine children born at Newport was Elizabeth Holder, born 4 Jan. 1664/5. (Dates uncertain.) No other Holder family has been found in New England before 1700."

On another note.... about William Sr.

"As mentioned previously, some records state William Chase's wife's last name was Townley.This has been disproved. There was a Townley linked to the Aquila Chase line ofChesham, Buckinghamshire, England, however they are linked through the Hathaways and not through William (Cape Cod) Chase. The name Townley is a name of "quality" and has been left on this record for any future research. "
While there is no absolute proof that William and Mary Hammond were the grandparents of William, born 1597,there is evidence that this is so.

Elizabeth Holder
I'm curious as to how Elizabeth Holder, who was born after 1660, married William Chase Jr, b. 1621/2 when Christopher Holder wasn't born til 1631 and didn't come to America until 1656, Mary Scott wasn't born until 1637 and Christopher Jr wasn't born til 1666.

Elizabeth Holder was NOT the wife of William Chase Jr.

RE: Winchell Line
Sure does except for the last one. David Winchell was one of them too. Yes distant cousins we are.

Winchell Line
I also have Winchell blood through my mother Blanche Winchell Cullen. Her father was Ernest Winchell Sr. born to William Winchell (1865) who was the son of Joseph Winchell born around 1840 born to Hiram Winchell(1803) and Sarah (1812) Winchell. I would have to pull out my research that took me all the way back to Robert Winchell (abt 1608). Therefore he is the son of Thomas Winchell and beyond. So we must be related in some way.
