Subject: [GENMASSACHUSETTS] Sally Ames
Date: Fri, 10 Apr 2009 20:24:33 -0600
I am trying to find any information on Sally (Sarah F) Ames (Eames). All I have is Barbour Collection For Preston, CN she married Nathan A Crary Feb 28, 1828 by Reverend Augustus B Collins.
She and Nathan had 2 children Nathan Oscar b. 1832 and Sarah Helen b.1833. I found baptismal records listing their. baptism with Nathan and Sarah listed as parents. I believe she may have died when the children were fairly young. They were living with an Aunt Eunice Brewster Crary Cooke in Waterloo, NY until they married. Nathan O spent sometime with an Aunt and Uncle Ames in his teen age years going to school. I have letters that Nathan and Sarah wrote to each other and father Nathan there is no mention of mother in any of them.
I am hoping someone can do a lookup with NEHGS or may have something else on her and possibly a birthplace for Nathan Oscar Crary. My mothers records say Springfield, MA. I find that hard to believe as all that I have been able to document puts the family in and around Preston, CN and Westerly, RI.
This is one of my block walls she would be my ggggrandmother.
One other item that might be of help Oliver Austin Crary (Nathan A's brother) married a Mary J Ames of Preston 6 Nov, 1828. Perhaps a sister?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
