Hi Linda, My husband, David, is the great great grandson of Aaron Burkinshaw. Aaron's daughter, Emily, married William H.F. Mount (also a "cutter" from Sheffield). We have their original wedding certificate from Little Valley, NY. Their daughter, Emma, married Lawrence L. Kreeft (also from a family of "cutters" from Sheffield). Their son Lawrence Kreeft, Jr. was my husband's father.
I found in a box owned by Emma Mount, photos of Aaron and his wife, Elizabeth, along with several of their children (Elizabeth, Charles, Harriet, Emily, Lavinia, & Estella). I have uploaded these photos to my family tree on I also have a 1911 post card sent from Cora Burkinshaw (Charles' wife) showing Burkinshaw Pond, Pepperell, Ma. I would be happy to share them with you.
