dedicated to my mom (above) and to my grandmother, Josephine Burnham Day (below
far left), who got me started on the family genealogy in 1981. My husband, Jim, and I are both
direct descendants of many prominent early Essex County families.
I have spent many, many hours verifying
and documenting my information, so I am satisfied that all names and dates on my site are
correct. I have numbered and footnoted all of my sources on the Jones
page; however, this is VERY time consuming, so on most of the other pages I have
simply listed my sources at the bottom without linking them to the actual
data. Feel free to contact me if you have
any questions about my sources. Of course, you should ALWAYS
verify new information, no matter where you get it from.
