Janetta, There were a lot of Lot's and a lot of Roger's and a lot of Sarah's, Benjamin's, John's, and a lot of other repetitious names in the Roger Conant lineage. Going down the line - Roger-Lot-Nathaniel-Lot-Lot-Benjamin, this Benjamin was my mother's great-great-grandfather, according to a partial geneology my mother was given. Benjamin left MA sometime around 1795 and went to Turner, Maine where he 'cleared his farm, built a cabin and planted his crops', then went back to Bridgewater to fetch his 'aged father Lot Conant' and bring him to the farm in Maine, according to the December 21, 1899 LEWISTON WEEKLY JOURNAL. This article also states that two of my mother's uncles (great-grandsons of Benjamin) had gone west - George C. Conant a prominent grain dealer in Idaho?, and Charles S. Conant an editor of a paper in Monte Vista, CO. Could this be your Charles Staples Conant? Where does 'Roger of 1947' fit in?
