My mother's family the line of Hopestill Jr. have owned the same property in Rochester since before the mid 17oo's., when the first Bisbee birth occured in Rochester.The farm house my mother sold about 1986 after my father died. We still live across the street and own about 200 acresof the original property. When they moved here to farmthe property was already in the family. Much of Rochester was used as Summer pasture land for the Plymouth Colony and had been granted to various persons for that purpose.All of Hopestill Jr. descendants are buried in North Rochester Cemetery. As near as I can find so far the transfer occur before 1686 (start date of Plymouth County) and was part of the Old Colony records.We have a lot of original records from that time including the deed when the farm in Plympton was sold. Send an e-mail address and I will continue the story.
