I would like information about Albert Austin's parents. He was born January 9, 1874 and died June 16, 1932. He was married to Gertrude Mae Getchell and had two children, Eunice Austin, and Harry Getchell. Harry Married Millicent ?. Albert had three siblings Minnie Austin-Salisbury, Fred Austin, and Mira Austin (died at age 4). Minnie married Luis Salisbury and had four children, Eunice Salisbury (nicknamed "Dink") Hazel Salisbury, Fred Salisbury, and Earl Salisbury.

And if anyone knows about "Turkey Grove" 40 acres at the end of Mill Road in Farihaven, MA in 1930s

Fairhaven is where Minnie (AUSTIN) Salisbury and Luis Salisbury were married. Salisbury is not really the line that I have been working on. I am working on the Austin side.

Sorry, not much help.

I have an ancestor by the name of Patience (SALISBURY) MASON. She was born abt 1770, and married Ezra MASON(b. 1769 in Swansea, MA). I am having a difficult time tracking the Salisbury's....where are your's from?
Thanks for your time.

I have some Getchell which is also spelled Gatchell but they are located in Maine from 1765 Durham,Maine to 1830 in Etna,Maine. There is a book: Getchell Family by Lillian Getchall Seebohm. Perhaps if you contacted the Maine Historical Society in Portland,Maine you may get some answers. Even if this is not your direct family--could be an off shoot of the Mass Getchell which could provide clues for you.

I have a Susannah SALISBURY, born April 27, 1662 in Swansea, Bristol, MA. She married Thomas SEAMANS in 1697 in Swansea. Her father was William.

thanks, It looks like they are in the direct family line.

from what I can find, It goes like this...
Samuel Getchell (b.1617) married Dorcus and had
Samuel Getchell Jr. (b. 1658-59) who married Elizabeth Jones and had
Samuel Getchell III (b. 1687) who married Dorcus and had
Dennis Getchell (b. 1723) who married Nancy and had
Dennis Getchell Jr. (b. 1755) who married Phebe Bragg and had
Franklin Getchell (b. 1818)who married Ann F. Brown and had
Charles Frances Getchell (b. 1864) who married Emily Jennie Bradley and had
Gerturde May Getchell (b. 1874) who married Albert Loring Austin adn had
Eunice Minnie Austin (b. 1915) who had
Judy Bradley Forrest (b. 1940) who had
Valerie Jayne Mosley (myself) (b. 1960)

Anyway it looks like the Gatchell(s) moved to Maine and the Getchell(s) stayed in Mass.

What do you think

You also have the Austin name in your line don't you?

from what I can find
Reiben W. Austin (b. 1828) married Jane W. Austin and had
Loring M. Austin (b. 1853) married Eunice Jane Ellis and had Albert Loring Austin (b. 1874) married Gerturde May Getchell and had
Eunice Minnie Austin (b. 1915) and had
Judy Bradley Forrest (b. 1940) and had
Valerie Jayne Mosley (b. 1960)

obviously I didn't write siblings just the line. Do you think we are connected?
Please write, I would love to hear from you.
If you can't get through on my e-mail try my daughters, people have had trouble getting through on mine.
