Bill’s Family: Ancestors of Eldora Beahm

These pages are a compilation of my work and that of others. You are welcome to use anything on this page, but be aware that although I have been as careful and accurate as possible, I am not a professional genealogist. I have been working on our genealogy for over 25 years, and started the website in 2005. Some of the lines I have researched myself; some, especially on Rita’s side, we inherited the research of other family members over the past 75 years. Still, the majority of these pages are limited to compilations from published books and what I could find on the internet. The target audience was and remains our family, so the family pages are limited to our own ancestors. I have set it up so that each page is one set of ancestors, with their descendants. For the most part I have limited my scope to their great-grandchildren (second cousins to us); in some cases I list sources which may continue further. HOME

3712.10. Moses Aldrich {a,b,wa} presents a bit of a problem. Thayer {a} says that Moses was born 21 Feb 1692, and died 10 Mar 1693, age 1. All other sources I have seen have Moses living to 70 and having children. It is obvious that two people of the same name are being confused; the question is, who made the mistake. I tend to like the old sources, but they did make mistakes like anyone else. And, we can find other old sources, such as {b}, that follow the line below. So I will assume {a} is wrong and leave Moses in here for now, recognizing that it may be found to be all wrong after further research.
Moses Aldrich was born 1 Apr 1690 in Mendon (Worcester) Massachusetts, and died 9 Sep 1761 in Mendon (Worcester) Massachusetts.
