1 thought on “Abernathy Family of New Haven Connecticut”

  1. I’ve been working on my family tree for a couple of years now. My problem is a roadblock with my great grandfather. His name was Isaac Moore (1818) of Woodstock, Connecticut. I can not find any documents that shows where he was born, where he died, where he’s buried or who his parents were.
    The census records of 1850-1880 show him living in Woodstock, but one says he was born in Connecticut, another says he was born in Massachusetts. Isaac’s marriage doc from his second marriage to Ariadna Mitchell says he was born in Vermont. His sons are buried in South Woodstock in the Quasset Cemetery, but not Isaac or his wife. I’ve searched and searched, but can’t find any death record. I’ve made an “educated guess” that Isaac Moore’s father was Alexander Moor of Union, Connecticut and I have found several DNA relatives who link to me through Alexander Moore and his wife Betsy Trim. However, I can’t find any documentation that supports my theory. I believe Isaac’s first wife and the mother of his children was Jemima Saunders, but I can’t find any death record for her either. Can anyone help?
