Francis B. Record - Progress Report
Posted by: Ian Maclaughlin (ID *****5527) Date: August 24, 2005 at 13:59:32
  of 920

Over two years ago I posted here <> looking for help in filling in some blanks in my Record line. Thanks especially to Dr. Michael C. Barris and Ms. Ann Lathrop, I've had a lot of good leads to follow and learn from.
Sometimes, the information one seeks comes right out of the blue. I just received, from a cousin I have not seen in over 40 years, an Email note with a scan of a note that had been enclosed in a Record Family Reunion book. It memorializes the 75th birthday anniversary of Mary Ida Record Andrews, held at Bucks Brook Camp, Town of Oselic, NY, on September 30, 1929. It states that Mary is the great-grandaughter of Elder Comfort Record of the Town of Smyrna, Chenango Co., NY.
As Mary is a daughter of Francis B. Record, and btw sister of my ancestor Sprague, it is now clear that Comfort R. is the grandfather of Francis. I had long considered Comfort as a prime candidate for the father, so that misconception is cleared up and two generations have been added to my family history.
From the 1790 census for Richmond, Washington, RI, Comfort R. had one son under age 16, one son over age 16, and 2 females in his household. I know only of a daughter Virtue b. ca 1790. Are the names of any sons known to someone that reads this?
