This is for Barb Dundas, I seen the name Odding in some paper work somewhere, I haven't gotten that far to my knowledge. But I will defiantley look further. But no matter it is nice meeting you.

This comment is to Nancy Featherly Stump....I have some information pertaining to Benjamin Congdon and Elizabeth Albro. I'm happy to share what I have, just not sure how to get it to you (still new to Genealogy Wise).

Hi I am looking for information on Benjamin Congdon, Elizabeth Albro, they was in Portsmouth, RI in the 1600's. Also looking for Benjamin Congdon and Francis Stafford also of Portsmouth, I have a John Congdon, Jr. born in 1777 in Rutland, Vermont, he married Tabitha Place, she was also born in Rutland Vermont. I have seen where John Congdon, Jr, is the grandson of Benjamin and Francis, it was in a message board, but have been unable to find any John Congdon b. 1777 in Vermont or RI.
