Dan Great to hear form you. We share William and Joseph as ancestors. Feel free to add any o more family history through comments. Bill

So nice to have found your blog, thanks to a new blog listing at Geneabloggers! I also have ancestry from earliest Connecticut, Days who first settled Hartford, CT. I look forward to browsing your history.

Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

My husband is a descendant of Moses Ives (born 1768 in Connecticut, son of Gideon) and Lydia Matthews. I would appreciate help in determining if Moses was a descendant of William Ives. I recently discovered your blog through Geneabloggers and am enjoying reading your informative posts! Thanks, Shelley

Shelley. My blog only covers my direct line form William so I cannot answer your question directly. I would look at these resources and they should have the answer. Good luck.

I've also started a family history blog,"Boses in the Attic", based on 67 boxes left to me by my father (who lived in Guilford). I look forward to reading your blog and using it as a guide as I go back in time.

Saint Bryan - glad my blog is helpful sounds like you are starting a nice journey. Bill


Great blog! I love reading about other people's success finding their family history. I'm searching mine as well: . I'll bookmark yours and try some of your methods :)

EJ Northrop

In the William line - My ggg grandmother was Rachel Ives (Northrop) d/o Charles & Sarah Butler. Rachel B 1780 Wallingford, CT married to Amos Northrop (b ~ 1776-78).

I have not been able to find any marriage or death record. It appears the couple lived next to (second?) cousin Aner Ives and family in Kent 1800. She may have died early and he may have remarried and I suspect they may have been Methodists or belonged to another church with unavailable records.

There are quite a few Ives in Litchfield 1740s-1850s. Would love to hear about:

Litchfield area Ives who were Methodists, Quakers, or other churches? (Was Seba, daughter of Abel Ives & Lois Tuttle, an early Mormon?)
Litchfield Ives involved with Iron Works?
Litchfield Ives involved with Clockmaking?

Thanks in advance.

Great post! I love to see family pictures. I now have an idea in mind for my blog. Thanks!


Great blog! I recently started my family research and knew very little about my father's side. Have discovered so much is so little time. Have found my connection to the Ives through Martha (1753-1827). Thanks for helping me fill in the pieces!
