I have just acquired the death certificate of my gg-grandmother and at long last have found a clue to her parents.Her daughter provided the following details and since they had been in close contact for most of their adult lives I feel it is a viable lead.
Sally HUNGERFORD b. CT m. Gilman THOMAS b. CT in CT? probably before 18 Jan 1827 when their daughter Marcia Maria THOMAS (my gg-grandmother) was born in Waterbury, Litchfield Co., Connecticut.I know of no siblings of Marcia's although I have just found a 19 year-old Gilman THOMAS in the 1850 census as follows : CT, Hartford Co., Canton, 1850, 40, 302,age 19,living in household of Louisa Chapin age 41 and her three children,George age 16, Harvey age 10, Mary age 8; This Gilman THOMAS could be a relative of Marcia M. THOMAS.
Maria M.THOMAS m. Leonard L. WILKINSON 29 May 1848 Bethlehem?, Litchfield Co., CT and (with much difficulty, help and luck) I have traced her through 3 marriages from CT>MA>VT>CA and to her death in 1909.
However -as they say- I am looking for the "rest of the story"!!
Does anyone have any further information relating to this Sally HUNGERFORD and her parentage/ancestry?
