States: Connecticut: Litchfield
My third great grandparents Jonathan Beckley and Sally Collins were married between 1806 and 1812 and resided in Canaan Twp, Litchfield County, Ct until 1814 when they moved to Athens County, Ohio. Prior to the move they had a daughter Charlotte and son H. Nelson Beckley. After arrival in Alexander Twp, Athens County, Ohio, they had sons Lewis, Walter and John.
I can't find a record of their marriage or anything on Sally's ancestry. I wonder if their sons' names share any commonality with sons' names in any Collins clan or associated families, that might have been in Connecticut before 1812 or had roots there? Does anyone have the names Nelson, Lewis, and Walter appearing frequently in their family history in a Collins family or one that might have married into a Collins family by 1812?
Thanks for your information or thoughts, Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org
