Winters of Salisbury, CT & Sheffield, MA
I am trying to sort out the Winters' in these areas to determine which are related to my Winters ancestors.My ggg-grandfather was Philip Winters, possibly a Jr., b. about 1815 in Copake, NY.Married to Melinda Angeline (Adeline sometimes) Ham before 1850 in NY. Children William Edward, b. 12/17/1840 in Pine Plains, NY (my gg-grandfather), Harmon, Peter, Mary A., Melinda A., Emma J. and Harriet (briefly married to William F. Bowen).
Philip and William moved from NY to Sheffield, MA, where they both served in the Civil War, and then to Salisbury, CT.Various Winters lived in both areas and I'm sure some are related, but don't know Philip's father so hard to tell.Philip is buried in Salisbury Cemetery. In the next plot is Albert Winters, b. 1835, d. 1912, his wife Elizabeth J. and their 3 children, who all died young.Albert's parents are John Winters, b. NY, and Nancy Moore (or possibly Nancy Ostrander), so maybe he is a nephew to Philip and John is Philip's brother?
Any help would be appreciated!!
