I'm sorry, but I do not have any information on Connecticut Burroughs families outside of the Barrows family which moved there. I'm fairly certain there is a printed genealogy on Robert Burrows of Weathersfield however.
Sure I'm still interested. mhollick@mac.com. thanks.

I would try used book dealers on the web such as abebooks.com or ebay.com. Otherwise try your local genealogical library and just copy the appropriate pages you need.
The sources at the bottom are there so that you can look up where I got this information. You should NEVER EVER believe anything on the Internet without checking up on it. The 1590 birth date of John Smith is based on his first marriage date to Isabel Drake ca. 1615. Isabel Drake's birth date of 1579 is based on her burial record which states that she was 60 in 1639. However, that information is believed to be inaccurate and inflated by more than a decade. Read the sources I cited.
It is the Old Cemetery in East Bridgewater, next to the Central Cemetery on Central Street in East Bridgewater. I am a Corbett descendant as well. Have a safe journey home.
Joshua Barrows's son Thomas married a Dorcas Slack at Attleborough on 14 October 1740. That would also be a family connection.

The citation is right there in footnote #2. the originals are either in Concord at the State Archives or at the Cheshire County Historical Society, I would guess. I just used the book.
I'm sorry, but I don't have any information on this family.

I finally found this couple in the census because I used the house number from the birth of their children (Vrbovce 578). That gave Alzbeta the birth year 1825. However, despite searching the records from 1824-1831, I could only find one candidate, and that Alzbeta was the sister of the Jan Valuch Malarik who becomes her husband. Or is it? What if the Jan Valuch Malarik is badly identified? More work needs to be done on this couple.
This Alzbeta turns out to be the one born 4 October 1814, daughter of Jan and Alzbeta (Kalka) Tomecek. The 20 August 1870 death record is clearly the wife of Pavel Chodur Dolinsky and gives the maiden name as Tomecek and age as 56. That combined with the marriage record gives the birth years from 1814-1816. The 1869 census information of 1809 must be an outlier and was somehow incorrect. Jan Tomecek and Alzbeta Kalka were married at Vrbovce on 22 November 1813, thus making Alzbeta their eldest child. One more down, just one to go.

Im not sure if I ever sent you all my Tura Luka ancestry. Its possible we descend from a family other than the Holics. It would be nice to link up, but I know I only go back as far as the 1730s (in two lines), so . . . . Thanks for the wonderful comment. Bounce anything off me, you have my email.

Even if I werent moving on, Im in the same bind I always was. When you have the time you dont have the money and when you have the money, you dont have the time. Having started over at the bottom, this year I get but two weeks of vacation, followed by several years of three weeks, before I return to the four weeks I used to get. Only at that level can you spend a few days at Salt Lake City doing real research. I think by taking a step back and leaving the Internet world, I just may want to do this again in twenty years. Or not. Martin

Also the gravestones should have arrows saying my second husband or my first wife.

They lived in New York City (Brooklyn and Manhattan). It is curious. But because it is not labeled Ill never be certain whos in the photo. Thanks for your help.

There are four different Burt men who emigrated to Massachusetts in the 17th century: Henry of Springfield, Hugh of Lynn, James of Taunton, and Richard of Sudbury. Since Lynn is the closest to Boston you can try Hugh who appears in the Great Migration 1634-35 I:501-4. His children would be the father of this William chronology-wise, and they are not continued, nor are they in Snow-Estes. Only one William Burt appears in Torreys Marriages, but I dont have the full set at hand to see what source Torrey used. I think the main clue is that James Wood was of London. Boston has a huge 17th century population of people just passing through. However, the Hugh Burt family was from Dorking, Surrey, not too far from London, and Hugh Burt received a legacy from his brother John of London. There may be a connection. Im not expert enough on gravestones to know why any two people would share a gravestone.

That seems like a possibility except why did the children stay so long? The one in the Holic household is 7 and well past breast feeding. Its times like these I wish I spoke Slovak and could contact some local Slovak history center.

Its possible. Remember that the Ev. church wasnt allowed at certain points in time. It flourished from Martin Luther to the counterreformation, was outlawed in 1710 and not allowed again until 1792. However, I can safely say that the person in my ancestors house was not a relative. We were thinking some type of disaster or disease of some kind.

Roger Lewkenors age comes from two separate records. One notes his age as 30 in 1452 (IPM of his father) and the other as 50 in 1471 (IPM of his uncle). As you cited, Eleanor Camoys age was 18 in 1428 (not 1426) So therefore he was about 10 years younger than she, if those ages are all correctly reported. However, ages are notoriously rounded up and down in medieval times. Eleanor was likely born even earlier and very likely so was Roger. However, all we can do is go by the records we have. Jumping to the conclusion that Roger couldnt be born then, needs substantiation on your part. It may seem unlikely, but Im sure it happened. He was to marry three times remember.
Thanks for all the good clues and sharp eyesight!

Thats the thing. Unless someone very well acquainted with the photographees helps you, you could be making a mistake. Thanks for the comment.

Newport, N.H., the Pine Street Cemetery.
Yes that would be quite something. Nope thats an error.
