Re: Labaree, Peter and descendants
Thanks for your posting. I'm related to William-Peter-Peter Labaree and have for some time been trying to document the birth of Peter Labaree in Salem in 1724. The published vital statistics for Salem and Danvers record no such birth, and there's considerable confusion, I think, about which Peter our Peter was. Gale Ion Harris, "John Blackleach, Merchant, of London and New England," NEHGR (January 1994): 38-44, at least suggests that the Peter supposed to have been descended from James, the Oxford MA missionary, was born in Stratford CT about 1719, but the Stratford clerk finds no such birth recorded.
Are you able to lead me to the source that documents Peter Labaree's birth in Salem?
I appreciate your help greatly.
