John Gavette, Jr.
I have a problem finding the parents of the listed ancestor who was supposed to have been born in Westerly, RI Apr 3, 1773 of John (d. 22 Oct 1816) and Thankful (d 27 Oct 1818) Gavette. One of John Jr's daughters, Mary "Polly" Gavette, b. 7 Jun 1817, d. 8 Dec 1882, Greenwich, NY was buried with her tombstone spelling as Gavitt? Many of the families that married into the Gavette's in Greenwich came from Westerly, RI. Is there any way a connection can be found? I would sure appreciate any help. I have the original genealogy back to the Gavey's and realize the name was also spelled Gavette as well as other ways and Gavitt. Thanks to anyone who has any information. And all of you - have a nice day! :)
