Seek information regarding marriage of Martha CONANT to David RIXFORD / REXFORD on 1 May 1806 in Boston MA.I am trying to verify birth and parents of Sally RIXFORD / REXFORD, born circa 1810.
I did find two Martha CONANTs - one b. 1781 Warwick MA, d/o Asa Conant & Martha Merriam, and the second b. 1785 Bridgewater MA, d/o David Conant & Silvia Whitman. I do not know which one married Rixford.
Two separate secondary sources name David Rixford of Mansfield CT as her father, but field trips to Mansfield Town Hall have been inconclusive, as there are no vital, burial or land records for him. This David, married to Martha Conant, is the only logical couple I have found so far that could possibly be Sally/Sarah's parents.
During the first half of the 1800's, particularly between 1830-1855, there were Conant and Rixford families that were engaged in the silk manufacturing business in Mansfield CT, namely, Joseph CONANT, Simon and Nathan RIXFORD.
Can anyone shed some light on this couple?Thank you.
