Durgin Family Genealogy Forum
I am still searching for my great grandmother's family.Her name was Cathathrine C. Durgin, according to my grandmother's birth certificate, and she was born in Guilford, Conn. My grandmother was Lulu Augusta Harrison, born in North Branford, Conn. on November 9, 1865.Her father was Reuben Harrison from North Branford. Reuben Harrison, son of Elizur and Rebecca (Bartholomew) Harrison, was born March 21, 1822, died April 27, 1882. He was married by the Rev. Peck to Catharine Durgen on December 21, 1852. The 1860 census for North Branford shows Reuben as 39, Catharine age 27, Lydia age 3, Benjamin age 7 mos. and Lydia age 75 (His stepmother). The 1870 census shows him at age 48, Catharine at 37, Lydia 13, and Lula A. age 4.
From TALCOTTS-FAMILIES OF GUILFORD,there is a William Durgin who married Clarinda Hill, daughter of Thomas and Roxanna (Benton) Hill of Guilford. She was born in May 1, 1803. They had a child, Roxana A. born November 29, 1829 who married Henry E. Kimberly of Guilford,in 1850. Does anyone know about this family, and could William Durgin and Roxanna be the parents of my grandmother, Lula Augusta(Durgin) Harrison?
I would greatly appreciate any ideas or information that anyone might have.
