Note 1: rbyard@bigfoot.com Oct 2002 Looking for the parents of Freelove Vergason (c1786-1874) who married Thomas Miner (1789-1873)
Hi Rosie, Contact Thomas A Miner at rooflines@friend.ly.net. He knows all about Freelove Vergason.

Note 2: (Thomas Miner) married Freelove Vergason. His brother Daniel Miner married her sister Susanna. Two brothers two sisters. Freelove and Susanna were the sisters of Oliver Vergason.
Daniel Miner married Susanna Vergason in the area of Bozrah, CT. around the 1810's. They had 13 children (all names available). Daniel had a brother Thomas, however, I am not aware of other siblings which may exist. If you are related to Daniel or Susanna, please contact me by email for an exchange of information. If you would like a listing of the children, that's available by email. chesshill@dmv.com Apr 2000

The marriage of this couple was said to be of the Enoch Arden order. They were both residents of New London. Mrs Sanderforth's first husband was a sea captain, who was shipwrecked on a distant voyage. and not being heard from for several years, was believed to be lost. Mrs Sanderforth, after some years of supposed widowhood, married Mr Miner; and soon afterwards Capt. Sanderforth reappeared and claimed his wife. The two husbands finally agreed that the wife should decide to which of them she would adhere; and that she and her husband should move out of New London county. She adhered to Mr Miner, and they forthwith moved to Winchester. Some of her Sanderforth children followed her, one of whom, a daughter, married William, son of John Miner.
