Surnames: Bourn Bourne Read Reed Willmarth Wilmarth
Been in my own personal 20 year mystery trying to find the parents of James Lawrence Bourne (1817-1908). He was born in Seekonk. I have an old letter of a later ancestor that contained a supposition that James' parents were Lawrence Bourne and Mary Read (reed?). Additionally, it states in the letter that Mary Read's mother might be Mary Wilmarth.

Does anyone have any connectivity of the Bournes to the Reads in this area in the late 1700's?

Thanks
Steve

Not related - saw his death and it does list Mary Reed as mother. Did you ever find his marriage? There is www.usgenweb.org - click on Massachusetts on the left hand side - will bring up a new screen. Then click on the correct county - you might find old records there.
