I have hit a wall regarding the ancestry of Ralph Day of Dedham, Mass. I descend from their son John Day. There is considerable information about the Fairbanks family and nothing about Ralph prior to his life in Dedham.
He was known to have married Susan Fairbanks in 1647 in Dedham. He had a second wife after Susan died in 1659. He was a stonemason and possibly held the rank of Sgt, though no military record is available.
He died on November 28th, 1677 per his will. To my knowledge there are no records of his birth either in England or in the New World.
If anyone can help please reply. Thanks!
