My Great-Grandfather on my Mother's Fathers side (Dewey)was Howard Ashley Dewey, b. Sept. 18, 1872, and married Rose Kate "Kitty" Thayer b.1872, Springfield, Mass.d.1905, in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Kate Thayer's father was HENRY C. THAYER, and was married to LAURA PRATT.
Also, I have in the THAYER line, RICHARD THAYER b.1655, d.1705, was married to REBECCA MYCALL, b. 1659, d.1732.
Their son was also named RICHARD THAYER, b.1625, d.1695. Married to DOROTHY PRAY, b.1634, d.1705.
They had a son also named RICHARD THAYER, b.1601, d.1664. Married to DOROTHY MORTIMER, b.1601, d.1641.
The end of my THAYER line so far is RICHARD THAYER, born about 1503,Thornbury, Gloucester,England, d. Feb. 11. 1562, in Thornbury,Gloucester,England. Married to CONSTANCE HOLBROOK, or HOLDBROOK, b.Thornbury,Gloucester,England, 1504, d.Mat 4, 1576, in Thornbury,Gloucester,England.
I have been contacted my the THAYER Foundation, and they helped me quite a bit, but I still have my own research and fact finding to do.
For anyone who stumbled across MY DEWEY line, I show my Great-Great Grandfather Henry Dewey's father as ABEL DEWEY, b.1773, being married to RHODA KING.
ABEL DEWEY'S parents were JOSEPH HORSFORD (not Dewey, which is strange, but maybe possible) and was married to EUNICE BEACH. That's ALL I have for this DEWEY line.
