1. Regarding the marriage of Mary Sutton and Tristram Dodge, at rootsweb the Wheelers have identified this Tristram as Tristram III, the son of Tristram Jr. and Dorcas Dickens Dodge.Mary was his first wife and Phebe Willetts his second wife.
I get lost on the Dodge lines.I am going to spend time trying to sort them out because I'm never sure of myself.I still get confused on the Jeremiah who married Elizabeth Sutton; on exactly where he fits in.
The Stephen Dodge who was a Loyalist and went to Nova Scotia was the son of Tristram and Sarah Hawxhurst--does that mean he was the son of Tristram Jr.?I need to go over the info again - just so I know what I'm talking about.
The Jeremiah Dodge on Carleton's Loyalist List has me stumped.I don't know anything else about him.I hope he proves to be the son of Jeremiah and Elizabeth Sutton Dodge:) There were so many Jeremiah's that I get lost.Also, several of the Dodge Loyalists were from the Massachusetts Dodges.I posted all the Dodge Loyalist info from Carleton's List in the Dodge surname forum yesterday.I'm going to try to identify all of them.
2.Regarding Caleb Sands of Bedford, yes he is the son of Othniel.I didn't know Othniel was an original founder of North Castle.That's very interesting to me.
I want to know anything about male Sands in the Connecticut/New York border area during 1730-1770.My Stephen was born about 1761.His dad would have been born by 1740 (I'm assuming).If his mother was the daughter of Jeremiah Dodge, then I'm looking for a male Sands who married a Dodge and they were living in Connecticut when their son Stephen was born; unless he was born in the area of New York that became a part of Connecticut.I'm thinking the border regarding Stamford, etc. was settled by 1761, but I've read there were disputes into the 1800's.
I need to create some kind of chart where I can note little details and track how these people all connect to each other.It's a paper maze that I feel lost in sometimes!But I do enjoy the challenge
