New England Roots
The Davies, Mecham and Page lines can be traced back to the earliest settlers of New England. In fact, all three of these lines intersect several times in the 1600s.
Our Mayflower Connection
George Soule (1602-1677-1680) was an indentured servant and passenger on the Mayflower's 1620 voyage to the New World. He was also a signer of the Mayflower Compact. We are descended from George Soule and his wife Mary Buckett (1598-1676) through their daughter, Susanna (Soule) West (1642-1684), great-great grandmother of Sanford Porter (1790-1873).
The Salem Witch Trials
Salem resident Susanna North Martin (1621-1692) was accused, tried and executed for witchcraft. Our connection to Susanna is through Betsy (Quimby) Roundy (1793-1880), who was a seventh generation descendant through her father, Moses Quimby (1785-1840). Thanks to compiler Bonnie Johnson who graciously granted permission to link to her informative page on Susanna's trial.
A Revolutionary Soldier
Connecticut resident Philo Hodge (1756-1842) fought in the Revolutionary War as a young man. We are descended from Philo and his wife Lucy Newton (1768-) through their daughter Samantha (Hodge) Stoddard (1795-1870), mother of Mary Ann (Stoddard) Dickson (1817-1903).
