In Reply to: Loren Taintor, Massachusetts by Kate Taintor of 70

Hello Kate,

I have some Loren's listed in BOTH my Taintor Genealogy books, 1 of 1847 and the other of 1859 and BOTH histories match, but they are MUCH earlier than 1995. It is possibe that you could obtain the Social Security application of your Loren Russell Taintor who died 1995 (everyone has to supply this application and you can obtain from the SSDI site a letter to send with money to get a copy of the ORIGINAL application or his death record, and find out his parents names, dates of birth and places of birth. Then obtain the 1st (his father?) Loren's death certificate and find his parents, but who knows. Is 1995 correct, it would/should be in an obit or so it would seem, and available to you. Usually genealogy requests are for the early 1900's down:

page 30:
9th generation:
Loren Taintor, no date of birth, but it would be before 1847, born at Whitingham, VT. He is the son of Norris D. Taintor. There is no further inf. given at this point in either book, so your Loren may descend from this Loren or the Taintor below who married a "Russell" or from an earlier Loren born 1790, see below. Hope all this leads to some clues.

page 29:
8th generation:
Norris D. Taintor was born March 1812. He married Sarah Martin in Sept. 02, 1834. I also note that on this page Josiah W. Taintor, Jr, brother of Norris D. married a woman named Elizabeth RUSSELL, is this how a son/grandson/nephew became named Loren Russell Taintor? Did he name a son Loren for his brother, then Russell for his wife? Their parents are:

page 29:
7th generation:
Josiah W. Taintor was born at Dummerston, VT Jan. 26 of 1782, married Miss Molly Davis of Somers, CT, in Aug. 26, 1803.

page 25:
6th generation:
Jonathan Taintor was (born 1755 and died July 31, 1801 at age 46 of typhus fever) & Jemima Root were married Sept. 21, 1776. He was a Baptist they named sons, Josiah W., Jonathan, Timothy and LOREN. Daughters named Polly, Jemima, Lois and Lucinda. His son LOREN which may lead to yours (but family names were used by brothers, etc.) is Loren Taintor born April 18th, 1790, married Ruth C. Graves of Watertown, NY on Feb. 26, 1821 and then Mrs. Mary (Norton) Forbes of Leicester, NY on June 29, 1835. He lived in CT, NY & MICHIGAN His parents are:

page 22-23:
5th generation:
Benjamin Taintor born 1725 of Watertown. He married Hannah Wood of Somers, CT. He was taken captive by the Indians and there is history of him on the internet. His parents are:

4th generation:
Simon Taintor (Deacon) who was born at Watertown, Mass in Feb. 28, 1693 married Rebecca Harrington in May 25, 1714. He died on Jan. 29, 1738-9, aged 68. I have more history. His parents are:

3rd generation:
Simon Taintor and Johanna Stone on Aug. 9th, 1693. His parents are Joseph & Mary (Guy) Taintor.

2nd generation:
Joseph Taintor born 1618-d. 1690 age 77 and Mary Guy born 1619 died 1705, age 88 were both from England. Married about 1640 in America. Most genealogists believe his father is Charles Taintor who also came to America AFTER his son Joseph with the Guy family.

1st generation:
Charles Taintor who came to America A.D. 1643 with sons, JOSEPH, Charles, Jr., Micael, and daughter, Marie. Family was from Wales.
