  • Notes 
    • REF: Roberta Hewitt
      Hi - I was recently to Woodbury, CT and found records there that might help -
      Junia & Hannah Durkee - married July 1745
      children include William born Oct 7, 1754

      Junia was the son of Benjamin & Elizabeth Sweet. He was born Feb 1722/23 in Rehoboth.
      If this is your William, I have more info - feel free to write to me.

      REF: Roberta Hewitt
      I went to Woodbury, CT last week and found the birth records for Job's children. I then looked at land records - Benjamin sold land to sons Job & Junia in 1753 - they sold their land between 1773-1774 and moved to ??? At that time Job's children - Lyman would have been 8 (born June 5, 1766) & Job would have been 3 (Sept 16, 1771); Annice was 6 (April 25, 1768). There were other brothers & sisters - do you have them? I do not have a brother Benjamin for them nor did I find any in Woodbury. Did Annis & John Knickerbocker come to NY? Do you know when?
