thanks, It looks like they are in the direct family line.
from what I can find, It goes like this...
Samuel Getchell (b.1617) married Dorcus and had
Samuel Getchell Jr. (b. 1658-59) who married Elizabeth Jones and had
Samuel Getchell III (b. 1687) who married Dorcus and had
Dennis Getchell (b. 1723) who married Nancy and had
Dennis Getchell Jr. (b. 1755) who married Phebe Bragg and had
Franklin Getchell (b. 1818)who married Ann F. Brown and had
Charles Frances Getchell (b. 1864) who married Emily Jennie Bradley and had
Gerturde May Getchell (b. 1874) who married Albert Loring Austin adn had
Eunice Minnie Austin (b. 1915) who had
Judy Bradley Forrest (b. 1940) who had
Valerie Jayne Mosley (myself) (b. 1960)
Anyway it looks like the Gatchell(s) moved to Maine and the Getchell(s) stayed in Mass.
What do you think
You also have the Austin name in your line don't you?
from what I can find
Reiben W. Austin (b. 1828) married Jane W. Austin and had
Loring M. Austin (b. 1853) married Eunice Jane Ellis and had Albert Loring Austin (b. 1874) married Gerturde May Getchell and had
Eunice Minnie Austin (b. 1915) and had
Judy Bradley Forrest (b. 1940) and had
Valerie Jayne Mosley (b. 1960)
obviously I didn't write siblings just the line. Do you think we are connected?
Please write, I would love to hear from you.
