Question:  In 1893 my ancestor was married in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  He was twenty-nine years old and his birthplace and residence is listed as Hebronville.  I have heard of Hebron, Conn. but since there was no other state listed I assume it must be in Massachuetts?  Do you know of this community?


Answer:  Thank you for your note.  I had not heard of this before, nor had my colleague David C. Dearborn.  It turns out this little community is a section of Attleboro, Bristol Co., Massachusetts according to a 19th century listing.  Sometime a Question of the Day can even educate the staff who has to answer it.
