Betsy Posthill of Thompson, Windham County, CT
Posted by: Debbie Howard (ID *****3508) Date: August 02, 2004 at 18:14:14

Has anyone ever encountered the Surname POSTHILL in their Connecticut Research?
I have a Betsey Posthill born 1787 in Thompson, Windham County, Connecticut. She married Rufus Converse in 1805 also in Connecticut. They moved on to Oxford, New York where she died in 1869 or 1870.
Rufus comes from the Converse Family of Woburn, Massachusetts and is well documented.
Rufus and Betsey are the parents of my Great-Great Grandmother Elizabeth Jane Converse who married Truman Southworth in Oxford, New York. They had my Great-Grandfather, Truman Southworth in 1843. He married Mary Elizabeth Elliott and they had my grandfather, Raymond Southworth in 1886 in Coventry, New York. He married Lena Belle Richmond and they had my father, Truman in 1913. Lena Belle Richmond is the daughter of Hattie Brockett who descends from the Brockett family of New Haven, Connecticut.
I have search many records but find no references to the POSTHILL name. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
