Western Massachusetts Families in 1790, Volume 1


In 1790, Western Massachusetts was a crossroads for New England families heading west into New York or north into Vermont. The transient nature of families living in this area, especially during the post-Revolutionary War years, presents certain genealogical challenges. Western Massachusetts Families in 1790 contains fifty genealogical sketches of heads of households and a listing of their children. Contributed by NEHGS members, these compiled sketches provide a major addition to the published research on this region.

This volume includes entries for the following surnames:

Baldwin, Beals, Beaman, Bigelow, Bowen, Burghardt, Chapman, Converse, Cook, Cranson, Cutler, Dorchester, Fobes, Frary, Fuller, Griswold, Harwood, Hastings, Heath, Hines, Holton, Howard, King, Kingsley, Milliman, Nelson, Pepper, Perry, Pittsinger, Rogers, Thomas, Thompson, Tolman, Tooley/Tully, Tyler, Warner, White, Williams
