Mr. HuntleyDo you have any other information on the James Minard from New London CT. Is this the same James Minard that married Abagail Camp in New Milford or Milford CT?I am willing to share any info. that I have. My understanding is that James and his family spent some time in Massachusetts before moving to Esopus NY. What I'm really trying to find out is where his son William learned the furniture trade. Some of our family have chairs that he made. He made his chairs with the use of water power. I would apperciate any help. Thank you for responding to my message.
