I have been looking for my Great, Great Grandparents for a while now. My Great Grandfather was James Beckwith who married a woman named Edna ?. James was born around 1815 in or around Waterford, Connecticut. They had 12 children. They were as follows: Ellen b.1840, James Jr. b.1843, Edna b.1845, Laura b. 1851, Elias b. 1848, Harriet b. 1852, Jeremiah b. 1854, Eleanor "Lena" b. 1857 (My Great Grandmother who married Albert Johnson of Montville, CT. and then remarried a William Sherman of Colchester, CT.), Isham b. 1858, Allen b. 1861, Mary b. 1864, and Martha b. 1866.
Aside from his obvious hobby of making babies, I know he was a stone mason in Montville, CT. If anyone can help me find the parents of James Beckwith, I would appreciate it. I am going out of my head.
