A note on the Pedigree Chart which came from Charles W. Preston (one of my mother's ancestors) stated:1-2-3-4-8-? American ancestry- Munsell (Vol. XIII) 3 (#2) CS 71-G48-1855 (Sutro Branch-library-extension? Davis, California.]
I descend from one of them, Elijah Goodrich, b. 03-Jul-1724, d. 03-Oct-1791 who married Margarette Gillette. [Margarette Gillette satisfies for XVII Colonial Dames through Jonathan Gilette, b. 1630, Dorchester, MA] She was born 20-Aug-1735 in Windsor, CT. They both removed to Hancock, MA. They had twelve children. one of whom is my ancestor, who fought in the Revolutionary War, Jesse Goodrich, b. 10-Oct-1759.
DAR-Private Jesse Goodrich acted in that capacity under Capt. William Douglas' Company, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts Militia.
Reference:Vol. VI,page 591, "Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors."
I would like to collect more proofs or documents regarding this man and wonder if there are other descendants out there who have joined the DAR on this line, or have brought him in as a supplemental.
