Of some of the oldest and most numerous families in town it is believed that no family records are in existence, and their history is made up imperfectly from what has been gleaned from stray leaves of baptisms, deaths and marriages found in the old church and town records. In many instances appeals have been made from time to time to persons to furnish matter in relation to their families, which have as often been neglected, till at last what knowledge has been gained has been furnished from outside parties. Such persons, if their family record is im perfect or not given at all, need not complain. No doubt many of the descend ants of the old families Will be surprised to learn for the first time the names of their grand parents and the number of their uncles and aunts.
No doubt many errors of a minor nature Will be found, for they are unavoidable in a Work of this kind; but those that know the unreliable nature of informa tion obtained generally from persons, Will spare the author unnecessary criticisms.
Acknowledgments are due to Col. David Buffum for information in relation to the general business transactions in town for the last Sixty years, which has always been cheerfully given; and also to Josiah G. Bellows, Dr. Abel P. Richardson, Rev. William Brown, Curtis R. Crowell, Alfred W. Burt, Henry Burt, Willard T. Blanchard, David C. Thompson, Miss Katie J. Foster, Mrs. Mary A. Wilder and her mother Mrs. David Russel, and others, for rendering valuable assistance.
