From: "speaksoft" <speaksoft -at- email.msn.com> Subject: Re: [WHITNEY-L] Abigail Fletcher Date: Sat, 9 Dec 2000 22:35:38 -0500 References: <38.ee1dba2.275fa249@aol.com> <001f01c06045$fc671d80$06eaafce@enduser> <002401c0617d$4efec6a0$c4541d3f@tatungops7350> <003801c061c8$7c726880$02b1c0d8@enduser> Jeanne - I do have a photocopy of the Fletcher portion of Chandler, as well as the other book without specified author, both of which I'll copy and mail to you Tuesday (if you send me a mailing address). Unfortunately, I don't find in either book a reference to Abigail or Martha or their husbands.This is understandable, since both books were intended to describe the history of New Ipswich, and only by way of background to provide genealogical information concerning the early-settling families of that town. In the case of the Fletcher family, for example, the Chandler work shows or attempts to give the direct ancestors of the New Ipswich Fletchers, the first of whom arrived in New Ipswich about 1754, tracing them back to their earliest-known ancestor Robert Fletcher, who was b. 1592 in England, came to America in 1630 and settled in Concord, and d. Apr 13, 1677. The material given on the Fletcher family focuses on the direct ancestry, and is not comprehensive as to the collateral ancestry, of the New Ipswich clan. Hopefully some of the material I send may be useful in tying into the material you already have and are getting from other sources. Good Luck! John
