GENEALOGY.

   The following are not intended as complete records of any family. The labor necessary to complete them would take more time than is at the disposal of the compiler. They will, however, serve as a starting point for some future genealogist. They have been collected from the town records, some of which are not now in existence; from tombstones, family Bibles and recollections of old people. The records of the older settlers have been made as complete as possible. The letter (a) represents that the person is buried in the Street Cemetery, (b) Wells, (c) West Canaan, (d) Sawyer Hill, (e) West Farms, (g) Cobble, (h) Birch Corner, (i) Porter, (j) Jones, (k) Dorchester, beyond the Jones Cemetery.
