My ancestors the Cross family are from Griswold. I am writing a historical genealogy that is in progress. My family is African American and only through my research did I discover they were from Griswold.

Hello! I am hoping to find some history on my family. My grandfather always told us that we descended from one of two brothers who left England in the late 1800's. One brother went north to settle, the other (my great-grandfather# L.D. Griswold #Leonus DeWitt (may be misspelled) settled in Grundy County, Tennessee. Can you please help me with information concerning the brother who settled in the Northeastern U.S. ?

Hi! I lived in Jewett City about 8 years ago when my daughter was born. Today (Memorial Day 2013), we visited the area and met up with an old friend who told me that the schools were fantastic for my daughter, who has special needs. We are very much looking forward to returning to this area, possibly!

My great-grandfather was Calvin Wilcox (born 1845). He had extensive landholdings in the area in the late 1800's-early 1900's. He owned as many as 2500 acres, much of which are now Pachaug Forest. I have a book about Jewett City published in 1896. It has write-ups and photos of prominent individuals, places and homes. If that is of any interest to the historical society, please contact me.

Could you please email me. I am located in Nova Scotia and have found 100 letters and photos from a WW2 vet written while overseas to his sister at home who lived in Jewett City. I would like to know if he is still alive and if so if if these items were meant to be thrown out. I'm hoping you may be able to assist me. Thanks

GHS, I am working as Archivist for the Coventry Hist Soc. We were given a collection of materials that include pictures of the village of Glasgo around the turn of the century, plus many photos of the Wilbur family, scrapbooks of clippings and some genealogical material. We are thinking that we would like to pass these things on to you if you would like to have them. The donor was Evelyn Pollard of Willimantic. Her mother was Edith May Wilbur dau of James Wilbur who was Superintendant of the Glasgo Mill. There are 50 negatives mostly of Glasgo. Sue Way

Enjoyed the sight! My hometown is Griswold, Iowa. No doubt named for the same army officer.

I am interested in a George A Chapman who was born in Griswold in 1819 and died there in 1888. He married a Martha Bromley (Brumley) and had a son James Buchanan Chapman (b.1856). I was wondering if the book you have on the history of Griswold might have something about him?

I recently bought Farmer Palmer's former home at 509 Voluntown Road. I am looking for any photographs of the property circa 1920 (when the home was built) or any throughout the years. If someone could point me in the right direction, I would truly appreciate it. I can be reached via e-mail at cgmact@yahoo.com Thank you....
