John Welch #84554067

My name is Paul Barton #48021873.

John is my wife's 3rd cousin, 7 times removed

John married first in Plainfield, Windham, Connecticut, Friday, September 11, 1772, Abigail Dibble, born: Salisbury, Litchfield, Connecticut, 16 March 1699/1700, died: before April 1729; Daughter of Benjamin and Mary (Benjamin) Dibble.

John married second in Plainfield, Windham, Connecticut, 11 April 11, 1729, Sarah Abbe born: Windham, Windham, Connecticut,11 March 11, 1699, living in 1754; daughter of John and Hannah (______) Abbe.

The problem is Abigail's marriage date makes her 72 years old.

You left a note - A descendant of Pilgrim William Bradford.and a picture of the cover of the book Mayflower Descendants

Is the E.Fitch link listed there? He is my GGF.
I am working on proving my ancestry to William Brewster and would be thrilled to find another possible Mayflower ancestor!

This might not help solve the Swisher Family puzzles but

John Foster Poorman's Son David C Poorman married Catherine Lilly. Their dau Minnie Mae married Simon Peter Swisher.

John Foster Poorman's Daughter Margaret Poorman married Edward Johnson. Their Son Thomas B Johnson married Sarah Haines.

Sarah Haines is the Daughter of James P Haines and Nancy Packer.

Nancy Packer is the dau of Jesse Phipps Packer and Sarah Linnes Swisher,

Sarah Linnes Swisher (my GGG Aunt, Half? Sister to my GGG Grandfather Michael)

Sarah Linnes Swisher is the Daughter of Joseph Switzer/Swisher b 1767 Pa d 1853 Ohio. Joseph lived in Centre County for sure from 1802-1826 when Sarah married Jesse. Joseph was in Holmes County Ohio in 1830.

I have a 4th Cousin Match to a Desc of Simons Sister and I have a DNA Match to the Family of Sarah Haines.

Thanks so much for the transfer of Ebenezer Adams to my care; certainly didn't expect this. Happy to get his bio information added, the transfer is quite a bonus.

Thanks again for your kindness and consideration.
