Re: Samuel Slocum born RI in 1755
Hi Sue; In my old age, I can't remember whether we have chatted before or not. As a resident of Dartmouth, what was your maiden name, and where did you live in Dartmouth ?
As far as Slocum genealogy sites, I think this one is the most complete. Truthfully, I have not run accross another...whoops, take that back, I have seen another site but the information is all messed up. People are taking information from others, with no back up reference (for checking) and are all messed up. When I check for information, I want to know sources, etc. so that I can double check for myself to see whether they may be right, or wrong, and if wrong, I might at least have some information to follow to check out the results.
The second publishing of Charles E. Slocum's book, on the Slocum genealogy, Has a listing on Burrell Babcock Slocum (8) found on page 158 and lists Francis, the 3rd child, who married Fred Anderson. They lived in New London, Conn. and had 4 children as of 1890. Unfortunately, there is no further information on her. If you are looking to get her info., then I would contact the town hall in New London to see what they might be able to supply.
If you wish to drop me another line, please contact me at my home e-mail, found by clicking on my name above. It would be interesting to find who and where you lived, in Dartmouth, and perhaps the years you were there. I am in my late 60's..perhaps, if I didn't know you, I might have known your parents....Whatever........
If you have any other questions I'll try to help you further.
