Gurdon Saltonstall is my fourth great grandfather. He was born May 18, 1760 in New London, CT to Nathaniel Saltonstall and his wife Rebecca Young. Gurdon married Hannah Hempstead and their child, born in 1786, was also named Gurdon. Hannah died shortly after the child's birth and his father soon moved to Fayetteville, NC. His second wife has not been identified, but they apparently had two daughters, Susan Jane and Rebecca and a son, Seneca Ashbury. The latter had a large family in Mississippi, some of whom migrated westward to Texas, Oregon and California.
