Thanks, Connecticut definitely makes more sense as the birthplace of Hazen's father.Did you think the census said the birthplace of his mother was New Hampshire?Where in New Hampshire were they in 1850?Did the 1850 and 1870 censuses name Hazen's wife and children?
Have you found a HAZEN connection to explain why Hazen HINCKLEY was given that name?An unusual name would usually have come from a maiden name of his mother or grandmother.TORREY's New England Marriages has
