Connecticut connection?
Posted by: Mariellena Simon (ID *****8619) Date: June 05, 2011 at 04:15:29

Hello. I am a descendant of David Brainerd (Enoch5, Chiliab4, Josiah3, William2, Daniel1), in Lucy Abigail Brainardís book, The Genealogy of the Brainerd-Brainard Family in America, 1649-1908.

David Brainerd married Mary Lucinda Osborn(e) 24 Sep 1856 in I believe Massachusetts. (They took off to Minnesota soon after their marriage). Mary Osborn was born in Becket, Berkshire, Mass on 6 Jul 1835. Her father was Lyman Chapman Osborne, her mother was Mary Church. Mary Church was born in Chester, Berkshire, Mass along with her 12 siblings. They are all there in the Vital Records of Chester Massachusetts to the year 1850 and Iíve been able to track most of them through a few census. Their father was Richard Church and their mother was Lucinda. And that is my brick wall. I am unable to figure out Richard Churchís parents names and Lucindaís maiden name. One of their daughter's (Mariah Allen) death records states Richard's birth place as Springfield and Lucinda's as South Hudley (Hadley).

It was suggested I post here in Connecticut as many families crossed back and forth between Conn and Mass.

I hope someone might be able to help me find Lucinda's maiden name and both Richard and Lucinda's parents.

Thank you
