in response to bruce brocketts posting re the e.j. brockett book of 1905. there are many errors in that book i have addressed some of them in a posting on this forum regarding sibyl brockett blakeslee and her children. there are also errors in her lineage her parents are benjamin brockett and althea ray, benjamin's parents are samuel brockett and mehitable hill, samuel's parents are john brockett and elizabeth doolittle. also on p. 35 there are erors regarding moses brockett. his two wives and his children have been merged. he first married ann grannis who bore him anne (1707) and silence (1709) ann grannis then died and moses remarried lydia humiston she bore him the rest of the children on p. 35 except for samuel (1715), benjamin (1716), and elizabeth (1724) don't know where these three came from. the best source in clearing up the brockett inconsistencies is the book Families of Ancient New Haven by Donald Lines jacobus pub. in 1923. it is in many libraries can be purchased from genealogical sources and is online at genealogy .com. all brockett relatives should endeavor to set their records straight.
