Is anyone researching any of these families? In particular would anyone know the relationship between Elizabeth BREWSTER and Richard HALLOWELL?? Has anyone purchased the will of Richard GRAFTON? Has anyone purchased the will & estate inventory of Richard HALLOWELL? Was there any further mention of that silver quart tankard and 7 silver spoons?

Is anyone researching the GARRETSON family who may have purchased the will of Elizabeth GARRETSON?
