This group does not have any discussions yet.
I wonder if it is not correct to say that the marriage of Dority and Josiah took place in Harwich - rather than Yarmouth - I believe Peter Thacher the JP was then in Harwich (which is now Brewster? - or the church that was than the North Parish is now called Brewster?)
Yes Josiah Swift is a difficult individual for records but I have found a number after a great deal of digging.
Since you state that you are a Dillingham and Swift descendant -- just how is that? can you give me a sketch?
Thanks for the info on the Facebook group -- will look into it.
John Dillingham (1630-1715) was my 9th great uncle. He married Elizabeth Feake 24 Mar 1650 in Sandwich, Barnstable County, Massachusetts.
They are both buried at Dillingham Cemetery in Brewster, Barnstable County, Masshusetts.
So far, the information I have, is Dorothy “Dority” or “Dorrity” Gray married Josiah Swift on 25 Jun 1719 in Yarmouth, Barnstable County, Massachusetts by Peter Thacher, Justice of the Peace. I am not certain of Josiah's birth year, I do have a few Josiah Swift shown in my family tree, wondering if there is a connection.
I have a family tree in Ancestry (I am a Dillingham and Swift descendent). There is a ‘Dillingham Group’ on Facebook if you want to join. They may have more information on Dority Gray and Josiah Swift.
One of my many brick walls I have.
I am interested in Rebecca Dillingham who married William Gray.
Rebecca was the daughter of John Dillingham and Elizabeth Feake
William Gray (1650 Falmouth-1723 Harwich) m. Rebecca Dillingham - they moved to Harwich, Barnstable, MA abt 1708. Their children included:
William (m. 1719) to Deborah SearsHannah (m. 1715) to William PenneySarah (m. 1723) to Eldad AtwoodMehitable (m. 23 Oct 1718) to Isaac AtwoodRebecca (m. 16 Oct 1712) to Samuel BerryThankful (m. 1718) to John Atwood (she d. bef August 1721)Dorothy (m. 1719) to Josiah Swift
I am especially interested in Dorothy (Dority) who m. Josiah Swift in 1719
Would appreciate any input on the Dillinghams or Swifts -- I know that at least three other siblings moved to the "Oblong" (Dutchess/Putnam Co, NY) in the 1749/50's period --
