I am writing you today because we found your website containing information on Colonel Thomas Knowlton,We believe our branch of the knowlton family is direct desendents ofCol. Thomas Knowlton. My father Remon A. Knowlton is in possesion of what he was told by older family members the Musket that Col. Thomas Knowlton carried at Bunker Hill/Breeds Hill and also the battle of Harlem Heights.My great,great Grandfathers name was James Albert Knowlton of indiana,this is as far back as we know our family tree. My father was told by his great uncle Loy Knowlton who was the eldest son of James A. Knowlton that we are direct desendents ofCol. Thomas Knowlton,We would like to clarify the authenticity of this claim and the posibility that the musket truly belonged to Col Thomas Knowtlon.We have many more details but would like to hear your initial thoughts.
