Re: Major Nathan Gold

In Reply to: Major Nathan Gold by Dick Ott of 621

I have been looking at this for some time, but there seems to be no difinitive evidence
to distinguish the two. Various sources give Nathan Gould of MA and Nathan Gold/Gould of CT as the son of John of Bovingdon/King's Langley. Maj. Nathan was a quite wealthy person, one of the richest in CT when he died. The other was not so well off. They had children with similar names, and were contemporaries.

As for the witch trials, lots of people were caught up in them. CT and MA had many... and that too is an overlap, as I think Nathan Gould of MA gave testimony in a Salem Witch Trial, and Nathan Gold/Gould presided over some in Fairfield as a judge. I only have copies of sources for the CT/Fairfield trials; the Salem ones are quite volumous.

Regards,

Scott
