In Reply to: Eldred book by Nelson Eldred by K. McDowell of 789

Sarah Eldred (Thomas2, Samuel1), born Kingstowne; died before November 1747; married Enoch Kenyon son of John and Anna (Mumford) Kenyon. Enoch married Ann Auchmoody 24 November 1747 in Charlestown RI and had five more children,surname Kenyon:
Enoch, died in 1775.
Joseph, died in 1793.
Damaris, married 24 February 1742, James W. Crandall.
Daughter- no more on this one.
Sarah, married 18 January 1753, Edward Crandall.
Alice, married 27 June 1758 Benjamin Crandall.
The above from Nelson Eldreds book.
It is a very good general reference book. But in this case, as it involves a female Eldred who married and consequently changed to the husbands surname of Kenyon, Nelson Eldred doesn't go any further into that line. If you want some good detail on Samuel Eldred the immigrant, there is a whole chapter on him. If you want info on Thomas Eldred (who married Susannah Cole), there is good general detail on him. If you are looking for detail on Samuel back earlier, The Saxon House of Eldred is the only book I have found that covers that. I understand from some very precise genealogists that it is not perfect, but still is a respected work by them.

I repeat, for purposes of this forum, I am not selling these books. I tore out a lot of hair looking for the data that was already done in them.

By the way, I am also descended through Samuel and Thomas/Susannah. My descendancy is:
Samuel/Elizabeth Miller
+Thomas/Susannah Cole
++William/Mary Wilbor
+++Thomas/Hannah Congdon
++++Joseph/Catherine Daly
+++++Stephen/Polly Sweet
++++++Stephen Albert/Hannah B Holt
+++++++Cute(Chute)/Daisy Mayo
++++++++Ernest/Helen Longley
+++++++++Alan/Nathalie Sue Batchelor
++++++++++Jerry Eldred(ME)/Lorraine Benoit
