Richard thank you for your reply. This helps me a lot. I saw that someone had posted her surname as Devol, but others had it as Macomber so I did wonder if Macomber was her maiden name. She may be the lead I am looking for- I can't find any info on my "key" people (from RI) after the mid 1700's....by 1800 one of the descendents is in Ontario, Canada and I am not sure how or why he would have travelled there, but I am sure he did not go alone. If I remember correctly, some of the Macomber's/McCumber's who were in Ontario also came from Rhode Island.
I am going to read over your posted messages again, because I think you descend from some of the families who were in the same places as the ones I am trying to find info for.
If you have anything at all on the Moon, Eglin, Cranston, Butts, Briggs families I am working on, I would be grateful for help with them.
