Due to the generosity of Sybil Butler from Texas,
I have the wonderful fortune of having in my possesion, the Bible
of Lucy Day, born 1756 and her husband Benjamin Chamberlin. Lucy descends
from Robert Day of Hartford Ct., and her line is as follows:
(If you find this is your direct line, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Robert > John > John > Benjamin > Adonijah > Lucy
The Bible is very large and the following are the pages in the Bible which
holds their family information. This is a truly wonderful discovery and I am
very grateful to Sybil for taking the time to find the Day family.
At this time, we do not have any descendants of Lucy listed in our descendants list,
but do have descendants of her sisters. Hopefully someone who descends from Lucy will
someday find our lines and their connection to us.
