Sherri and I were working on similar trees. I tried to mail her an answer directly, but long story short Sherri has recently passed away (May 28, 2008). For posterity, then, here is my posting to her. My condolences to her family. -Ken

Dear Sherry Routhier,

I recently came across your ancestry web site,, where you list the ancestors of Stephen Licurtis Willey. This has been a great resource of info I have not seen before. I have been researching this tree for a few months (for a friend who is a Willey descendent). You list Alfred and Harriet Pinkham as parents, which I agree with, but Harriet's maiden name is listed as Bunker in your tree. My research suggests that perhaps it is Harriet Burnham instead of Harriet Bunker and I am curious if you used inside family knowledge to arrive at your entry or could otherwise suggest to me a primary resource I could reference. These people are so far removed in time that I am only relying on various sources (not necessarily reliable ones I am afraid) to piece it all together.

In the following digitized book, there is a compelling case for Harriet Burnham.

Deacon Winthrop Smith Meserve

(Oyster River Plantation)



Alfred Pinkham, son of Daniel and Sally (Davis), grandson of
Daniel, was born 21 May 1810. He had brothers, William,
Joseph, Charles, Hicks, Salmon and Stephen, and sisters, Fanny
and Nancy. He married, 1831, Harriet Burnham of Newmarket,
who died 14 Jan. 1885.
