"In 100 words, describe your favourite ancestor."
My favourite ancestor is one of my earliest settlers in the New England colonies - well, he's my favourite since I'm researching more details at the moment! Every week a new favourite ancestor. 100 words, eh? Whew! Follow the links for more information and interesting details. Here's 96 words on William BUELL:
I have found the Albert Welles' book of the History of the Buell Family in America full of misinformation and incorrect assumptions, making for some definite challenges in early research. Here's another book I've also used, and there are more of course on early history of Windsor. A quick search on Google will turn up a number of books, booklets, histories and more.
Wikipedia has a lovely 1640 map of Windsor, showing Wm Buell's land (top half, left of centre). Don't you love these wonderful old maps -?!
