As late as the 1870 Census of Lafayette Co (Belmont), Eben Dorman Churchill/Martha Storey owned a sizeable farm and resided there with many children, the youngest of which was Lucy born 1871, the year Eben died. Eben was buried on a family plot in Lima twnsp, on the edge of a farm
he and Martha had previously owned. His mother and three siblings are also buried there.
A brother, James Alfred Churchill/Julia Ann Butler, owned a farm in neighboring Ellenboro twnsp, and also fathered a large family. Most are buried in the same Elleboro Church Cemetery.
I'm descended from Eben through his son, Thomas Foster Churchill. I have traced the family ancestry back to 1638, Wethersfield, Ct, (Josiah Churchill/Elizabeth Foote). Most of the blanks in the first and ensuing generations have been filled. But,there are a few glaring gaps.
I have spent hundreds of hours on the internet. Also spent several weeks in Ct.,Ma. and Vt.,seeking data. Thus,most avenues have now been covered. Need data that is not posted anywhere.
Are there any other descendants out there who have data and want to exchange???
If so, respond to the bulletin board, or email me direct at "DWChurch@shaw.ca".
