Subject: [GM-L] Brackett
Date: Thu, 23 Mar 2000 13:04:16 EST
I am researching the Brackett line from ME, NH, & MA. Does Pope give any
reference to this name? I am looking for
any info in addition to that which I get from the Brackett Genealogy. From
someone else I have reference to JAMES THOMPSON/ female BRACKETT marriage -
no date and not in my references. Also have C BRACKETT/EMELINE THOMPSON,
also no date. Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
