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
- Residences: I do not list every member of a family who may have
lived in a residence—primarily 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
- Non-residence Properties: I also indicate individuals closely
associated with non-residence properties, such as the merchant
owner, or church minister.
