Hello Marilyn,

I have not seen the Charles M. Taintor book. How does he address the father of Michael (~1625-1673)? James Savage in "A Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, Before 1692" said:

"CHARLES, Wethersfield 1643, rem. to Fairfield, said by tradit. to have come from Wales, with ch. Michael, Charles, Joseph, and Mary, and the same doubtf. autho. wh. takes care only of Michael, sends Charles the s. to Virg. a. 1656, and makes the f. lost at sea 1654. Perhaps he had no s. Charles, but was a merch. and may have been lost on coast. voyage, or in the sh. of Capt. Garrett, founder. 1657. His d. Mary m. 27 Nov. 1662, it is said, Thomas Pierson."


"MICHAEL, Branford, an early sett. perhaps s. more prob. younger br. of Charles, for no single circumstance is kn. to prove there were two call. Charles ..."

I would appreciate any light you can shed on the matter.

Thanks ... Kay Schmidt
