The CT branch is where many of the published genealogies miss a few spots, so best of luck there. Although a bunch stay in Stafford, those that move into Windham County or into Willington (also Stafford County) present some research problems, especially with the transition into Vermont.
It's interesting to note that of the children of William and Mary Martha Lane, the children of the first two boys (William, Jr. and Andrew) are responsible for the CT branches. All others stay in MA before moving on to other states.
If you're up for a CT research challenge, the children of David Orcutt (b. 1708), son of William, Jr. and Hannah Newton, and his two wives, Susannah Packard and Sarah ?, I believe hold the key to unlocking many of the Vermont and New Hampshire branches. The online genealogies have an impossible death date for David and rely on incorrect data. Specifically, children of the first marriage with Susannah Packard stay mostly in Stafford, but children of Sarah ? move into VT (very unusual) in areas like Windham County, VT. Perhaps there's another David? My stay at the CT State Library wasn't long enough to uncover the information.
My branch is through my grandmother, Florence Mae Orcutt. The males from there back to to Charles Emery, Emery Horton, Daniel Webster, Emerson, Emerson, Emerson, Thomas Sr. and William.
