Genealogical History Showing the Paternal Line of Descent from Arthur Rexford, a Native of England, Who Married Elizabeth Stevens, of New Haven, Conn., in 1702 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Genealogical History Showing the Paternal Line of Descent From Arthur Rexford, a Native of England, Who Married Elizabeth Stevens, of New Haven, Conn., In 1702 I believe now, I might have succeeded, if I had found a few more interested ones to aid me. Some have given me valuable assistance. I comfort myself with the thought, that my labor has gathered for preservation, much history of the family that would have been lost with the lapse of a few years. Many errors, or supposed errors will be found in these pages; especially in dates The opportunity, not to say necessity, for such errors, is great. I have found family records and town records differ ing in dates of births, marriages and deaths. I have often found members of a family at variance on dates respecting themselves, and that sometimes the family record does not agree with dates given on tombstones. The baptism of an infant, as entered on the books of the First Congregational Society of New Haven, by the officiating clergy man ante-dates the register of birth on the town books by thirteen days. In such cases I have taken the date that seemed to me, after careful examination, most likely to be the correct one. I would be glad to give more of personal history than I have done. It may be noticed that, of my grandfather (3) Daniel and his brothers (3) William and (3) Joel and their descendants, I have oftener related matter of personal concern. I have done so for the simple reason that those incidents were known to me or were of easy attainment. I invite correction of errors and solicit additional information for use in a subsequent edition if one is published.
