My discovery that Thomas Baker’s church in Milford had a gallery for Indian slaves led me turn learn more...



The Milford church, called the meeting house, were my ancestor Thomas Baker worshiped had a “gallery” where slaves presumably stood during the service. Native Americans had been enslaved following the Pequot War in the 1630s.  The gallery was probably for slaves of this origin.  In Connecticut and throughout New England, where, 350 years later, descendants of Indians and Europeans still have an uneasy relationship, Indian slavery remains a rarely recited part of our history. …

Hello - I was sitting in the chat room reading profiles and I see your statement that you have traced one line for 102 generations. That is amazing! If an average generation is 20 years, that is before the time of Christ. If an average generation is 25 years that is 500 BC. How did you do that? I am stuck on my Averys at 5 generations to 1784.

We have an active chat community here. Please join us sometime.
