Re: Larry Churchill & Ned Brooks:
Been researching Josiah Churchill for over year, via internet sources,also used various message boards. Have been able to trace Josiah & John back to England, even France. But,many who have been researching for years, claim there is no proof beyond the U.S.Some claim Josiah (Wethersfield,Conn), John (Ply, Mass) And William (New York), all brothers, but, again, beware no way it's documented (that anyone knows of.) What is well documented: Josiah married Elizabeth Foote in Wethersfield,1638. John married Hannah Pontus in Plymouth 1642. Both lines have many early descendants throughout New England states,then across America. Lots of info on www.familysearch.org
and ancestryworldtree.com, plus others. But, beware, lots of misinformation. Larry,if you have info going back to England, would love to hear from you. I will be going to Boston Library in a few months where a relative, who done extensive research on Churchills (went to England re search), is said to have deposited his search,a manuscript, at Library.
