Does anyone have any information about Joel Dunton, who diedin Franklin, Mass. at the age of 42 by the kick of a horse?  He was married to Lavinia Gould and they hadCharles, Nancy, Alonzo, Eveline and Waldo (my great-grandfather).  The family story is that he came here fromScotland but I find no immigration documents for him.  I also can’t link him to any of the Duntonfamilies from around New England.  Hismarriage and death certificates don’t list parents or place of birth.  Any information or leads would beappreciated.

I've given up (not really) after decades of trying to find Joel's ancestors, so now I'm looking for his descendants. I'd like to connect, or re-connect, with the families of Charles (m. Mary Trentham) and Nancy (m. Nathan Davenport). Joel's other children were Alonzo (no children that I know of), Eveline (died young) and Waldo (my gr-grandfather). Looking forward to hearing from my cousins.
