Daniel Fifefield

I have been pouring over your excellent research of the Fifield family, trying to connect a branch of my family in the Eastern Townships with the Fifefields that would fall in the fifth generation of your tree. According to a weak paper trail, one of my husband's ancestors, Abigail Fifefield (Phifield) married Mark Spinney, Jr. in Bolton, Brome County in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada probably around 1810ish.

Someone who I presume is her father is listed on the 1825 census for Bolton, Daniel Fifefield. However, both Daniels who would have been born at the correct time to be her father in your family tree (Daniel 137 or Daniel 133) never lived in Canada according to your notes.

Do you have any thoughts about who our Daniel Fifefield might be and how he might fit into your tree? I am happy to provide detailed information from my tree if it helps, as well as all original sources I have. It is listed on under "Walters family."

I appreciate any guidance you might provide.

Arthur Fifield

Arthur S. Skip Fifield was a popular hero when he and his helpers came into town via boat from Holderness School to which point they came with a load or Manchester Unions Thursday afternoon. We understand Skip won a bet of twenty five dollars when he made this hazardous trip. >The Plymouth Record, March 21, 1936, p1.

RE: Dearborn's History of Salibury NH
I can believe that and the history of Chester isn't any better, but it is a start. Nancy Healey is either the daughter of Paul or Samuel Healey. Most likely Paul since Samuel's children are fairly well identified and there doesn't appear to be a good match. The only child of Paul that I can ID is Paul, Jr.

Hi Peter:

I was born in Rochester, NH and my 4th gt grandmother was Rebecca Wells b 1795 Durham, NH d Dec 8, 1877 Rochester, NH. She married my 4th gt grandfather Moses Howard. She was the daughter of Edward Wells b 1768 Durham, NH d 1817 Isle of Shoals and his wife Margery Hardy b 1778 NH d Mar 24, 1824. I have been stuck on the lineage of Edward Wells and yet to locate his parents. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

# 76513980 Capt. Josiah Green
Hello, Peter
I took a photo today of Capt. Josiah Green's grave in Salisbury, NH, and posted it to his Find A Grave memorial that you maintain. Anyway, his year of death was 1840 at 78 years of age instead of the 1846 listed , so could you please update his info with the inscription on his stone. regards, Ken
