Hello,Douglas. I am working my wife's family, because she is not into it.She was an Aldrich until May 27, 1967, when we married.I have access to the six volume set of the Aldrich Family.I do not take it as gospil, have found several "mistakes" in it.And I have heard some stories about the author (legally blind) and having his kids do the recording, etc . Here is her line starting from her father:
1. Mills Chase Aldrich & Helen Batcheldor 2. Levi Parker Aldrich & Carrie Chase 3. Charles Edwin Aldrich & Betsey C. Richardson 4. Morrill Aldrich & Lydia Ball 5. William Aldrich & Jennett Morrill 6. William Aldrich & Dinah Aldrich 7. Jacob Aldrich & Joanna Bartlett 7. Edward Aldrich & Dinah Aldrich
I have not gone passed Edward yet in the set.Do you have any information on the wife's etc.There are a lot of blank spaces to fill in.
My father-in-law managed farms in four of the six N.E. States.My wife was born in Maine and her brother in Mass..The last farm he was at was in So. Tamworth, NH, where we got married.He had a bad heart attack and had to retire.I was in Vietnam in June, 69, when he died.Due to being not a blood kin of mine, I could not come home.It was a rough time for us, with me being so far away. I am a native born Texian, but I loved the NE area.Was stationed there twice, in Newport, RI and Boston in the Navy.When I got out, I almost did not come home. Do you tie into her line?Let me hear from you.
