BRIEF EXPLANATIONS


Great care has been taken to make these genealogies correct and complete. Every birth that could be found on the town records has been copied, and these have been compared with the record of baptisms up to 1800, and every baptism recorded of a child whose birth could not be found has been given here in the place of the birth.

Much biographical reading is here given because it was not convenient to place it in a former part of the book; indeed much that is in the former part has been taken from the genealogies for the purpose of making a more connected account in the historical part.

In the record of marriages and many of the families, where persons belonged to New Milford nothing is said of the place of residence, but if they resided elsewhere or removed, the place is given, if it was known.

The deaths of many persons are not here given because they are printed in the lists of inscriptions on the gravestones.

Many families resided in the town during forty years after the Revolution of whom no record of births could be obtained, for during those years there was great neglect in recording births, and all persons of many of those family names have disappeared from town.

The abbreviations are such, it is thought, as will be readily understood: m. stands for married, b. for born, d. for died, unm. for unmarried.

Only one set of numbers are used, as being the most convenient and readily understood. The number at the birth of a child is repeated only when the marriage of the same person is given further on.

Only the names of persons in the genealogies which cannot be traced in alphabetic order in any of the various families here recorded are given in the index of the book.
