I am researching the ancestors of My husbands Horton family. Their history is mostly concentrated in the Rehoboth, Swansea and Seekonk areas - with most branches going back to the 1600's.
I am searching for the parents of Almira Kelly. Our Horton Family Bible says she was born in RI Oct 3, 1799. She married THomas Sisson son of Esek Sisson and Sebra Luther (of Samuel Luther branch) of Swansea.
They used familiar surnames in naming thier children:
Mary Viall Sisson B 1821
Charles Smith Sisson b 1825
Almira Kelley Sisson b 1827
Laura Paine Sisson 1831
Shubeal Burr Sisson B 1836
