Looking for ancestors of Becky Brightman, who married Edward Walworth Jr (stonington/Groton area of CT).Daughter Susan Angeline/Adaline Walworth was born abt 1810.
Pension records (posted earlier) seem to indicated Henry Jr had some children born abt the right time, and I've seen Henry (senior) had a wife Susannah.Henry Jr was married by a Baptist elder, and so was Susan A. Walworth.Anyone got agender breakdown of the family (1800 census, maybe)?
Then again, the name Rebecca also arises in the pension records [but for Rhode Island], and we know that Thomas and Rebeckah (Palmer) Brightman had at least one child, who destroyed the family Bible!
And I have no reason to believe [or not] that Becky's father was a pensioner. Also, I don't recall whether I've searched out the Brightmans in the Barbour collection for Stonington. There's nothing helpful to me in Groton's Barbour records.
