I have been hunting for years for a Reuben Crowell, b. 1789, that all sources says was born in Connecticut. I have looked at various towns and counties without much success. HELP! I know around that time there were Crowells(or Crowes) in Middletown, E. Haddam, Chatham, Windham, and Lebanon. However, I have found no link as yet. There may be a Newman and Harriet Crowell who are related to Reuben, who are older. My Reuben first shows up in Andover NH in 1809 in a deed and tax list. An Elizabeth Crowell was born in 1808 to Newman and Harriet, also in Andover. Haven't been able to find Newman anywhere. Any help would be appreciated...this is a major BRICK WALL!
