Hi Flo,
I just happened upon your Hugh Essex descendant list. How very interesting! You've done a fantastic job. I too am a descendant of Hugh Essex. My great-great-grandparents were Mary Congdon and Wilbour Shippee. Mary was the daughter of James Congdon, Jr. and Martha Essex. Martha was the daughter of Corp Essex and Mary Matteson, and of course Corp was the son of Hugh Essex and Rebecca Corp. There are so many spellings of the name Corp, but I have been using "Corp" because that is what is on his grave stone. All of the people I've just listed are in WK054. That cemetery was a mess when I visited it in 2006, but in 2007 it was all cleaned up. Somewhere I read that the house built by Hugh Essex in the Potowomut area is still standing. Do you have any idea where it is located? If you are interested in any of the Congdon and Shippee lines, I have a lot more information going way, way back!
