At the request of Malcolm Wilson, I am posting the following message. Please respond to him at his e-mail address at "firstname.lastname@example.org".
His message follows:
"I am the great-great grandson of George Jervis Goodhue (Aug 1, 1799 (Putney, Vt)-Jan. 11, 1870) son of Josiah and Rachel (n. Burr).George Jervis lived in London, Canada (my hometown), and is written up in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography.My family never paid much attention to this "foreigner", but since my immigration to the US, I have become more interested in his American background.His is an interesting story of fortunes made, wills written and broken, fortunes squandered, bankrupcy, fraud and foreign exile, which I would be delighted to share with you and the group.I wanted first, before I waste anyone's time, to know whether and how GJH is related to William and Margery.I know that you have a copy of J.E. Goodhue's book, and I wonder whether I might impose on you to fill me in on the genealogy, i.e., how to get from William and Margery to George Jervis.The dictionary cites pp. 40-41, 71-73, 144-45 of "History and Genealogy..." for information on GJH.Many thanks in advance.
