Thank you for posting that, Julie. It's very interesting and really helps with the PA branch.
"Excerpt from History of McKean County (J.H. Beers)- ROSWELL SARTWELL: "...first of the Sartwell family in America was Simon Sartwell, who located at Charlestown, NH and was killed by the Indians while he was plowing on his farm."
It looks like that author confused Simon with his father Obediah who was born in Groton, MA 18 Mar 1701 and was killed by indians at Charlestown, NH on 17 Jun 1749.Obediah was married to Rachel Parker and their children were Simon, Lois, Esther, Nathaniel, Rachel & Solomon.
"He had two sons, Obediah and John."
The History of Langdon (1932) by Frank Kingsbury admits some uncertaintyregarding the lineage of another son of Simon in addition to Obediah & John -Simon,Jr.,and adds daughters Electa, Hannah(#1), Hannah(#2), Hannah(#3), Rhoda, & Esther.
"Obediah lived in the town of Langdon, NH and had a family of six sons: Solomon, Phineas, Joel, Obediah, Thomas and Roswell. "
The History of Langdon names all of those except Roswell. It shows a Roswell of unknown descent who resided in Langdon from about 1805 until his death on 9 Sep 1864 in West Lebanon, NH where he had moved. Solomon & Phineas went to Bethlehem, NH and Joel to Littleton.
" . . .This book was written in 1890. Let me know if anyone needs more."
That is all extremely interesting as there were branches that moved to PA & to NY that I haven't as yet had information on for the website. Tracing Sartwells has been made doubly difficult by the family's repetitive use of such names as Solomon, Simon, & Obediah. in the various branches and generations and conflicting sources.
If you have access to a scanner I would be interested in a copy of those pages.
