Looking for ancestors of Helen Moffett CURTIS, born 21 Jul 1821 in Danbury, Fairfield Co., CT. She married Ross Ransom ROGERS 1 Sep 1838 in Peekskill, NY, died in Provo UT.
Helen was daughter of Matthew CURTISS and Betsey WHITE, both bn in Danbury, Fairfield Co., CT. The CURTISS line is well known--it being the Stratford Co. Curtiss line originating in Nazeing, England.
I am trying to identify the WHITE line and find the MOFFETT line that surely must be part of this ancestry, it being the middle given name of a daughter of the family.
Helen Moffett CURTIS's siblings were:
Henry White CURTISS,(md Mary Ann Wright)
David Allen CURTISS, (md Annis Barnum)
Theodore CURTIS, (md Margaret Morgan of Wales)
Emily CURTISS, (md Mr Miller--her mother,Betsey WHITE, the person I am really looking for, went to live ...with this daughter and died there, in Williamsburg, NY)
Olive Olivia CURTIS (md Abraham COOMBS)
Any clue would be wonderful. We have been searching for this ancestry for over 70 years.
