I have been at a brickwall with my Mason for many years...my 3rd great grandfather was James Mason who married his 3rd wife, my 3rd grandmother Margaret Randall (Allen) (Clark) (Mason). I THINK I have found two possible fathers more recently. He was born in MA (not sure where, but MA and RI was also mentioned) and I believe he died somewhere in the Brunswick, Medina, Ohio area. I've been able to find most of his descendants with his 3 wives and yet still cannot find his parents' names with absolute certainty. He was born 1773/4 in MA Rehoboth OR Adams MA, died in Medina Co, 1850. Was his father James Mason or Philips Mason??
Major John Mason of CT is my ancestor - my mother was Shirley Grace Mason
Sampson Mason and Mary Butterworth are my 8th great grandparents. I descend through their son, Pelatiah. From Pelatiah to my 2nd great grand`mother, Sarah Helen Maon Neely.
I am getting more and more confused with Roswell Mason. On the LDS site it says Hannah St. John married Roswell M Mason born 1801 IN the book History of Portage County Roswell M Mason came with his father Elijah, who brought two sons 16 and 17. Well if Roswell M Mason who was born 1801 was Hannahs husband then he would be 3. None of this adds to it being the same person. THen on the LDS site it does list their children, and yes the children are correct, (my ggrandfather James Calvin Mason) Where do I find the correct Roswell, It is a brick wall enforced with steel beams. Can anyone assist me ? Thanks
