Hi Mitchell. How interesting! The RMS Titanic! This would make for a Great Story at our Reunion this Summer. Do you know what lineage William Hull Botsford follows? I am forwarding your request to the Association's genealogist. Please watch here for a response in a week or so since I don't know how else to contact you. Are you a registered member of the Botsford Family Historical Association? We have a number of genealogies for sale that may be of interest to you. I will let you know if we can figure out what lineage William follows and what genealogy you can purchase, but also please watch for our Website coming in about two weeks. The address is www.botsfordfamily.org
. We have a wonderful association - about 500 registered members so you know there are more out there that are not registered. Those are the ones we are trying to find. We have soo much history to share. For instance, this summer, we will be celebrating our 96th family reunion, once again, on land once owned by Henry and Elizabeth who were pioneer settlers of Milford, Conn.(1639) Do you realize we are the only family in colonial New England owning land that has been continuously under the name of the original settlor. DON'T YOU FIND THAT JUST SO INCREDIBLY AMAZING AND EXCITING????!?!?! So, please stay tuned, and I will try to find out this information for you. In the meantime, if you know what lineage William follows, as well as Howard Smith Botsford, please email be back here.
