I am researching the HOSMER family (1630s on... in Hartford Co, CT...). This led me to the BUSHNELL family. It is one branch of the BUSHNELL tree that leads to Danbury, Fairfield Co, CT and to New Milford, Litchfield Co, CT. Here's what I know.. and what I'm looking for...
I have one Mercy BUSHNELL - b 1687 in Danbury, CT and married three times. Two of the marriages happened in New Milford, CT - not sure where the third happened. Have some information on her first husband, but little on her second or third.
Mercy BUSHNELL b 1687 in Danbury, CT; d 05 Sept 1767 in New Milford, CT.
>> 1st marriage to John BOSTWICK, b. 12 Oct 1688 in Stratford, CT; d 12 June 1741 in New Milford, CT. Marriage: 03 Jan 1711/12 in New Milford. (they had 5 children?)
>> 2nd marriage to William GAYLORD. Marriage: 14 Oct 1742 in New Milford, CT. (when was he born? when did he die? is he related to the GAYLORD family that founded the village of Gaylordsville that is today a part of the town of New Milford?)
>> 3rd marriage to James LOCKWOOD. (Don't know very much here - maybe the marriage was "after 1743" - don't know where) (when was James born? when did he die?)
>> Where are all four of these people buried? Mercy BUSHNELL and her three husbands..
