Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired college dean and a 10th generation American. My 7th great grandfather arrived in New England in May 1630 and was a founder of three towns: Dorchester, MA; Windsor, CT; and Westfield, MA. Consequently, I have many family relations scattered (and buried) around the country. I lived in the very eastern part of New York, in a couple of the Hudson River towns, before moving to Mérida, Mexico. Now my wife and I spend winters in the Yucatan and summers in Provence, France.

Re: Lydia Kellogg King # 136766920
Hi James, thanks for contacting me about this daughter of Stephen Kellogg and Lydia Belden. I can't place this Lydia Kellogg King definitively as their daughter but I've updated Stephen's page to refer readers to the page for Lydia King. Check it out and let me know if you think it can be improved.

Stephen Kellogg: # 37524974

A check of records for Lydia Kellogg on Ancestry shows images of the old marriage and death documents for her and David King, but nothing that names her parents.

I see that she was buried in Berkshire County and that Hampden County where she grew up is adjacent. That plus what I know about the early Kelloggs in MA does strongly suggest Lydia Kellogg, daughter of Stephen and Lydia, is the same woman who married David King. Without a record to tie her to them I'm inclined to just leave the update as I've written it. As you probably saw I don't have stewardship of Lydia Belden Kellogg Lewis' page.

Hi James,

I went ahead and deleted the record because somebody had earlier created one under her name of Caroline Sperry.

Nancy J. (Pelham) Gunn 49999173
Hi, James~
Thanks for all the work you have done for Find A Grave.
I noticed tonight that Nancy has the wrong husband. She was married to Spencer Gunn 23 Mar 1874 in Boulder County, Colorado. Her marriage certificate is in her widow's pension file, along with an affidavit from George M. Gunn, Spencer's brother. George swore on 7 November 1891 that his brother died from the effects of a fall from a horse at Sterling, Logan County, Colorado on 12 Oct 1876. George and Nancy filed for pensions on the same day: Sep 30, 1891 (she for a widow's pension and he for an invalid's pension). If you google: "Nancy J Pelham" and "Spencer Gunn," there is also a rootsweb transcription of Boulder County Marriage Records that contains the marriage info.

Harlene McKinney
Martha Ann McCullough
Hello James . . . My name is Harlene McKinney and my great, great grandfather, George W. Green was married to Esther Louisa Alford, June 11, 1841 and her parents were Martha Ann McCullough and Patrick McCullough who was from Ireland (Monaghan,Ireland) - I found your comment on the grave site interesting since I am related to the McCullough family on my father's side and related to George Green who married and Alford on my mother's side.

King edits - Becket
Thanks for the King edits, Becket center. I see they came from Westfield, which is where I live. Not too sure where you are but if I can help in any with your research let me know. Jim

Captain John Gunn

Nice to "meet" you! If you have ancient Plymouth Colony ancestors, there's a very good chance that we are cousins, although distant at best. I have a Mayflower ancestor as well as Fortune and others. Howland, Bassett, Lapham, Tilden, Blodgett, Swetland/Sweetland and many more.

I've transferred Capt. Gunn to you as he is apparently an ancestor of yours. My data was from an inventory of the Westfield Historical Commission. Beyond that, I have no original sources or primary information. Feel free to make whatever changes you deem necessary.

Thanks and someday we may discover if we have any common ancestors!
