John Loveridge was born in Colchester, Connecticut on March 9, 1735/36. He was the second son of Lewis Loveridge and Ann Fuller, who were married in Colchester on December 31, 1733. John and Lucretia were married about 1764, probably in Colchester, as John appears to have been born in Wisdom (Deerfield) about 1765. They had two children we know of, John (Jr) and Lucretia Ann. Lucretia (Morgan) died Dec 6, 1802, and John sr. died Jan 17, 1803. The William Loveridge you mention born Colchester May 28, 1761, was a son of Lewis Loveridge by his second wife, Grace Dodge. A number of neighbours from Colchester and other members of the family also moved to Deerfield over the years. Any information others may have on the Loveridge families from Deerfield would be appreciated. Family info in Sheldon's History of Deerfield is not all correct.
