RYDER'S OF MA AND CT

Updated January 2, 2001

About Our Family Research


WE ARE CURRENTLY IN MA BUT WE HAVE TRACED MANY RELATIVES TO CT. MY RESEARCH HAS TAKEN ME TO THE CEMETARIES OF BRIMFIELD, MA, WHERE THERE IS A MONUMENT TO THE RYDER'S. UNFORTUNATELY, BRIMFIELD HAD A FIRE IN THE FIFTIES AND THE CEMETARY RECORDS WERE DESTROYED. THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY 8 OR 10 RYDER'S BURIED THERE AROUND THIS MONUMENT WITH THEIR BURIAL DATES. THIS IS WHERE MY RESEARCH STARTED.

THROUGH THE WORCESTER TELEGRAM, THE SOUTHBRIDGE NEWS, THE SOUTHBRIDGE POST (OUT OF BUSINESS), LIBRARIES IN WORCESTER AND NORTHHAMPTON (WHICH HAS A 2 VOLUME SET OF RYDER'S), I HAVE TRACED MY FAMILY BACK TO TOLLAND, CT AT THE TURN OF THE 1800'S. CURRENTLY, THIS IS WHERE I AM AT RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT. AS FAR AS I KNOW, THERE ARE NO OTHER RYDER'S ON MY SIDE TRYING TO DO A FAMILY TREE.

I WILL GRACIOUSLY ACCEPT ANY INFORMATION THAT I CAN GET.
