I am trying to find further information on Daniel & Lucretia Tewkesbury. Daniel died before 1900 and Lucretia in 1904. They had 3 sons that I know of Walter, Daniel, and Charles Frances Henry, born 1886. I did find one tree in the family tree maker CD's but Daniel's date of death does not match up with my grandfather's date of birth. Any help would be appreciated.

[I have reference in my database to Daniel TEWKSBURY married Lucretia CHUBB 30 Mar 1858 in Lennox Township, Macomb County, Michigan. Daniel was born 7 Apr 1817 in NH and died 14 Apr 1880 in Ray Township, Macomb County, Michigan. This line might also be being researched by Ralph Tewksbury . . . Natalie.]

I found in the list of names on your site a "Floyd JEWETT" and would like to see if there is any connection to my JEWETT ancestors. What we have proven is that our family is not part of the Jewett Family of America (JFA). around 1840-1850 the spelling was changed from JUETT to Jewett. Our family research finds that it may have been JOUETT prior to 1800 but we cannot link to that family in KY.  I posted the following message to the Tewksbury site earlier today. Looking forward to any info you have on Jewett to see if he has a link to my family. Thanks Cousin. One of my ancestors is Judith Saunders who was married to Eleazor Crocker on 4-7-1770. Judith was the daughter of Hannah Tewksbury who was married to James Saunders. I did not have any prior information for these individuals. Thanks for the information.

I can provide you with the downline to my grandchildren which is through 4 generations of Crockers, then 2 generations of Travis and then 4 generations of Jewett.  There is a web site for the Crocker info also.  Again, thanks cousin and let me know when or what parts of my information you would like.

Where does the Tewksbury name and or its variations originate? Was it a family name in England or elsewhere? One authority in England says the Town of Tewksbury was named after a hermit named Theoc and Bury was the Saxon name for Town. I am also doing a book on Tewksburys beginning with Parker (1794-1863) who came to Wisconsin about 1855 from Danforth Maine. His father was Thomas. Parker had 4 sons: Parker Bradbury, David Elkin, James Dunning, and John.

I have two letters written to my great-great grandmother, Sarepta Tewksbury Doster (10/2/1846 - 8/2/1930), both have Clifford written at the top of the first page and are signed by ...your father Simon Tewksbury. The first letter is dated October 1, 1888, the second is dated December 10 and the envelope is postmarked 1897. I've found a Simon born 1818 in NH (New Hampshire??), and a Simon B, born 1819, also NH. Simon B. married Polly Porter in Summit, Ohio 9/20/1840. I don't have enough to know if either of these are my Simon.

In the letters, Simon mentions his farm (land records?), Victory (dying of consumption and grief from the loss of her children), Nancy, Byron, Ed, (and a new baby girl (1888)), Emming, Elith, Fred selling land (1897) Otas, and most frustrating of all "I married a woman one year ago, she is a kind & pleasant..." who remains nameless. Thanks for any attention and/or information... csm
