Woods, Fields, Cooks, Taylors and Parmelees
These are the basic names I am researching. All were on Long Island in the 1700s and then branched out to New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Most were from Suffolk County on Long Island except the Parmelees-they went a little bit north.
I am trying to find the origins of Preserved Field and what happened to his descendants. He had three sons that I know of-Leonard, Joel and Gustavus. Joel begins my line: married Abby Goldsmith and had four girls!
They were Cecelia, Emily, Martha and Lydia (my gr grandmother). Lydia married Henry K Wood and they had five children: Charles, Jennie, Emma, Harry and Frank. Charles married Evetta Showles Cook and they had seven children: Edna, John, Jennie,Jessie,Charles,Linda and Leila.
Because there are two genetically inherited diseases in our family, we are trying to trace all those of the Field and Wood families. Emily's children would have been Farmers and Cecelia's would have been Wells.
