Correction to the first statement: should read, Sharon, Litchfield, CONNECTICUT.

Additional information:

Whitford, Charles H age 31 born in CT
Emily, his wife age 34 born in CT
Clarence-son age 1 born in CT
WHITFORD, MARY - MOTHER - age 62 - widow - born in CT (?)

On the 1930 Census living in New Haven, CT:
Whitford Charles age 54 born in CT
Emily 54 born in CT
Clarence 21 born in CT
Edwin 19 born in CT
Emily 115 born in CT

From the social security death indexes:
Clarence Whitford b. 2-12-1909 d. 12-22-2000 Concord, NH
Edwin Whitford b. 1-26-1911 d. May 1985 Weare, NH

From the Nashua Telegraph - Nashua, New Hampshire Jan 27, 1949:
Edwin Whitford of North Haven, Conn, recently purchased the Cram farm in South Weare. Mr. Whitford worked in a factory in Connecticut for a number of years and found that it did not agree with his health. He figures that being out in the open air on a farm is what he needs. Mr. Whitford has a second-hand tractor, plows, harrows and a potato digger to cultivate his land with. He plans to make poultry his main enterprise, however.

It is said that my great-great-grandmother, Alice Louise Kilmer Benton ??? died in Clayton, MA at the home of her sister, Mary Cordelia in 1912. Alice remarried after her 1st husband William S. Benton died to a gentleman with the last name of Ryvielle/Ryvelle/Revelle. I have guardianship papers regarding her 4 children where this new last name is spelled at least 4 different ways.

Is anyone related?
