Hamlet People Associate with Historic Sites

The following individuals or families are believe to have been associated with the specific Sites.  All sites are not associated with an individual in the Hamlet People database.  In some cases, a reference in the Inventory may have been too ambiguous to provide a positive link to a specific individual (for example, "a member of the Rose family."  Over time, some of this ambiguity should disappear as I find more information.  And I'm always appreciative of corrections and advice.

  • Residences:  I do not list every member of a family who may have lived in a residence‚ÄĒprimarily just those who may have built the house, were an early resident "head of household", or who were otherwise prominent in the community.  In some cases, association with other family members may be found in the Hamlet People database.
  • Non-residence Properties:  I also indicate individuals closely associated with non-residence properties, such as the merchant owner, or church minister.
