I have recently discovered that I am probably a descendant of the Daggetts of Rehoboth, Massachusetts.
In the Rehoboth, Mass. Vital Records database on Ancestry.com, I found that my ggggg grandfather Wilson Franklin (born in 1752 in Rehoboth) was the son of Joseph Franklin and Abigail Daggett.According to the same database, Abigail Daggett was the daughter of John Daggett, Jr. and Hopestill Daggett and was born 17Jan1729.
It appears as though this John Daggett, Jr. and Hopestill had the following children in Rehoboth:Rebeckah (born 02May1722), John (born 06Nov1723), Hopestill (born 09Jan1725), Sarah (born 26Jan1727-8), Abigial born 17Jan1729), and James (born 02Jan1731).
There seem to be quite a few John Daggetts and John Daggett, Jrs. in this family.I have read about the John Doggett (and son John) who crossed the Atlantic with Winthrop in 1630--does anyone know if and how these particular Daggetts are related?
