Looking for information on Gaylord H. Thompson who was in Middletown 1829-1832, listed on a land transaction in Madison with several other Thompson's, who were all siblings, and their spouses.

Mentioned in David Thompson's post death land transaction with others
Madison Town Hall - Volume 2, p. 165- 170. November 1829 and received for record April 4, 1832

Thompson of Middletown, Elijah and Florinda Stevens of Wethersfield, Asenath Dayton of Durham, Barron D. Thompson of Madison, and Charles Thompson of Durham. (Not listed are: Asher, d. 1823; Nicholas, d. unk). Samuel Lynn to act on their behalf on a 1 1/2 acre parcel of land lying in the East part of Madison bounded North partly by land belonging to wife of Samuel Parmelee and partly of Timothy Hill, West of Timothy Hill, South by highway, east by land formerly of David Thompson.
