    (A281) REYNOLDS/HARTWELL -Dr. Asaph Clark, son of Samuel Clark & Sarah Cushman, m. 15 Sept. 1815 Chloe Reynolds, b. at North East, Dutchess Co., N.Y., 9 Mar. 1785; d. at Troy, Rensselaer Co., N.Y., 10 Nov. 1833. The will of Chloe indicates that she was survived by her mother.  The first ch. of Asaph & Chloe was named James Cushman Clark (1814-1864), the James being entirely “intrusive” in terms of the Clark and Cushman families.  This James Cushman Clark m. at Lansingburgh, Rensselaer Co., N.Y., 30 Dec. 1839 Sarah A.M. Betts. Their second ch. (b. 1843, d. 1844) was named Emma Hartwell Clark.  These names, places, and dates make it highly probable that Chloe Reynolds was the dau. of James Reynolds and Sally Hartwell, and the sister of Jonathan and Samuel Reynolds, subjects of the inquiry.  Information is available on the descendants of Chloe Reynolds.

    (A310) BUCKLIN/BUCKLAND - Hattie B. Cooper published a pamphlet in 1944 entitled Squire Bucklin of Foster, R. I.,            His Ancestors and His Descendants, available at NEHGS.  She traces R. I. Bucklins to William Buckland of Hingham, Mass., via Joseph2 Buckland.  My line goes back to William1 via Joseph’s brother William2.  However, my data is weak on William2.  Need birth and death dates and wife’s name.  His children were William3 and Charles3.

    (A460) - Corydon C. Wilson was born at Torringford, Conn. (VR), 5 July 1853, youngest of the three children of Darius and Clarissa (Treadway) Wilson.  He married at Altona, Knox Co., Ill., Mary A. Preston, b. in N.J., dau. of Thompson Preston.  She died in 1874.  They had four children, surname Wilson, probably all born at Altona: Frank, Arthur, Cora, and Charles.  This information is from Biographical and Historical Memoirs, Adams, Clay, Hall and Hamilton Counties, Nebraska (1890), p. 336.  I am working on a genealogy of this particular Wilson family and would appreciate any info on Mary A. Preston, her mother or these Wilson children.

(See Torrey, New England Marriages Prior to 1700.)  At present, there is no proof of their place of origin parentage, or Mary’s maiden name.  It is suggested that “according to tradition” her name was Mary Maxwell (Shattuck, History of Concord [1835], p. 383).  Robert Robbins, Sr., is credited under Capt. John Cutler in 1676 and in a company of soldiers at Hassammesit, now Grafton, Mass.

Elizabeth Robbins, b. 9 Oct. 1704, m. before 1726 Eleazer Fletcher (see the Fletcher genealogy).  For some further comments about Robert Robbins, Sr. and Jr., see F. R.
