My direct ancestor was Burrel L. Story. I am a Story by birth. I can't find his parents. He was born in New London, Prescott, CT in 1792 and died in Otsego, NY.
He was said to be a hatmaker and lived in Norwich, Chenango in his 20s, actually at about the age of 28, per the census of that year.
He was married to a Laura Hamilton Story. Anyone heard of this family? Thx!!
