This is excellent information.Thank you so much for sharing.I'll do some digging and see if I can't pull it together moving forward.
Also, here's what you need to take William, h/o Eliza Converse, back to the original William:
William (b. Jan 24, 1793 in CT; d. Sep 24, 1874 in CT) was the s/o Stephen Orcutt (b. May 19, 1797 in CT; d. Mar 27, 1841 in CT) and Mary Washburn (b. Apr 15, 1762 in CT; d. Apr 15, 1860 in CT.William was one of ten children to Stephen and Mary.
Stephen Orcutt was the s/o Daniel (b. Nov 3, 1734 in Bridgewater, MA; d. 1801 in CT) and Lydia Cushman.Stephen was one of eleven children to Daniel and Lydia.
Daniel Orcutt was the s/o David (b. 1708 in Bridgewater, MA) and Susannah Packard (b. Apr 3, 1718 in MA).Daniel was one of six children to David and Susannah.
David Orcutt was the s/o William, Jr. (b. 1664 in Hingham, MA; d. Apr 10, 1739 in MA) and Hannah Newton.William was one of two children to William and Hannah Newton.William also married Jane Washburn and Hannah Smith to whom he had six other children (three to each other spouse).
William Orcutt, Jr. was the son of the William Orcutt who starts off the majority of Orcutt genealogies in the U.S.There's a host of debates as to the next step back in this line and whether or not it ties to Scottish heritage.Joel Orcutt has done a great job disproving this theory (much to the dismay of a few Orcutt researchers and my grandmother - my Orcutt connection).
As you might imagine, the line from William down expands exponentially.If you have any areas you need help in with your research, please let me know.
Again, this is great information.Thank you so much for contributing it.
