Re: Erasmus Manford, Universalist minister
Not sure just what info you seek.I am descended from Erasmus, Sr. through youngest son, James Manford who eventually settled in Guadalupe Co, TX in med-1800s.I know little of Erasmus, Jr. but do have date of baptism in Newburyport, MA and am familiar with the book he wrote and published "Twenty-five Years in the West", I believe is title.
I am trying to locate background on Erasmus Sr and wife Agnes Sanderhoof who married in Newburyport in 1812. Sr. was lost at sea in 1818 and I'd like to know name of vessel, etc. as well as definite locations of births of Agnes and Erasmus (She in Amsterdam, but he listed in various countries.)Agnes later married John Stratton of MA.
