John Joseph Erving's ancestors were from Salem MA.He was b. July 04, 1832 in West Harfrod, CT.The information I have is:
"The Erving family came from Salem, MA and settled in Hartford County, CT and from West Hartford, (Dora's grandfather), who was a boot maker, came to East Hartford, bringing with him his son, John J. ....(paraphrazedfrom "Commemorative Biographical Record of Hartford County, Connecticut" 1901; p.666)
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
