I am doing research for a cousin of mine and yesterday discovered that he is of the Lillie/Blodgett line which leads in opposite directions coming out of the Blodgett line to:a Samuel Blodgett who md. Huldah Simmons/Simmonds and to a Mary Simmons who md. Joseph Alden.Are these two ladies connected in some way to a common Simmons/Simmonds ancestor?I have been reading the queries/posts on ladies of these names here on this Genforum and am getting a bit confused. I have no dates as yet for the Blodgett line past Joshua Blodgett who md. Hannah Alden. Not having a FHL at hand I have to hope to find something on the internet, and something that has some substance.It appears the Blodgett line goes backward with a Joshua who md. a Dinah ; Samuel who md. Huldah Simmons, etc.
