Full Circle: A Directory of Native and African Americans, Windham County, Connecticut, 1650-1900 - Marcella Houle Pasay. Following in the footsteps of Rose and Brown’s ground-breaking Black Roots in Southeastern Connecticut, Ms. Pasay has documented early natives, slaves and colored freemen residing in, and with ties to, Windham County, Connecticut, and the surrounding area from 1650–1900. Information gleaned from hundreds of sources, including census records, vitals, church records, selectmen’s minutes, seamen’s certificates, military records from the National Archives, court records and diaries, to name just a few, provides historians, scholars and family researchers with the data necessary to track early Indian and colored individuals and families. The appendices include: Rosters of veterans from the Colonial period through the Civil War; a detailed breakdown of the 1830 Federal Census; and Indian map of the “Quinebaug County” with place names and map history. This directory is attractively presented in alphabetical order. An every-name index of the over 8,500 individuals and a twenty-one page place and subject index complement the work.
