A Great Day for Marriages !

On this date, 16 May, in 1721, my 6 times great grandparents, Ebenezer Lee and Sarah Chidsey were married in Guilford, New Haven, Connecticut.  The couple were the parents of 7: Mary, Elon, Rachel, Rhonda, Sarah, Lucy, and William (1741) [my 5 times great grandfather].  It is this William Lee that is the current project of mine for submission as a supplemental application for the Sons of the American Revolution based upon his service as a Private in Capt. Northrupt’s Co., Col Stilliman’s Regt., Wadsworth’s Brigade Connecticut.

But, closer to current era, and persons I knew my entire life, also on this date 75 years ago, in 1944, my mother’s sister, Leila Marie Weaver married Andrew Strachan in Detroit, Michigan.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
