" The Hempstead Family of Long Island, NY" Updated November 24, 2000
About Our Family Research
I have started to research my family tree and have been able to trace back to my 2nd Great-Grandfather. However this is were I have hit a roadblock. From what I have been told my family moved to Long Island from Connecticut. They first landed from England in the New London,CT area. I have seen the Hempstead houses but, unfortunately they were closed when I was there. I am hoping that there will be someone out there who could help me link my 2nd Great-Grandfather with the New London area Hempsteads. What I do know about James A. Hempstead (2nd Great-Granfather) is that he lived in Cedarhurst, Long Island,NY and is buried in Trinity-St. Johns located in Hewlett, Long Island,NY. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I would love to leave my children and family this information. Thank You.
