Eric: I descend from Joseph Aldrich b. approx. l695-l700 his son Abraham Aldrich married Ruth Sheldon, both of Smithfield RI. Their son, Joshua, served in the Revolution and is part of the Norwich NY people who left RI for NY, along with the Mowrys, etc. Joshua married Ruth Evans, their son Esek married Anna Taft, their daughter Anner m. ____ Tinker (who died in a swamp in NY) their daughter Anna Emeline m. Daniel Templeton, lived Painted Post NY, then Genessee Co., Mi. then St.Charles, MI> He died of injuries suffered in the Civil War. their daughter, Emeline married Delmar A. Butts (anglicized from Butz) my father, Guy Richard Butts m. Viola B. Staley, then Joan E. Butts b. August 29,l932 m. Col Thomas D. Keller, USAF,retired.I have proved Joshua as one of my DAR ancestors. Does anyone in the Aldrich Assoc. know of Joseph and whose son he was?I would like to attend this year's gathering of the clan if you are planning one.Does the group have a genealogist or a searcher in RI that I can hire to dig up Joseph and find out how he goes back to George and Katherine Seald Aldrich? I would like to complete this line. So happy to find another group of cousins on my father's side.I have photos of Emeline.
