Coventry, RI, 1913:
her father Philip Johnson, Fran Remington
with Gladys & Helen, Clarence Chase with
Marion, my great-aunt Hattie (Whitford)
Chase, & Great-grandma Angeretta
are descendants of Pasco Whitford, the earliest
known Whitford to come to America. He arrived
sometime before or during 1680, first coming
to the Newport/Portsmouth area, and later settling
in East/West Greenwich. See the Family Tree
for more information on our Whitford ancestors
and their families.
See In Memoriam for gravestones of many early Whitfords.
My great-great-grandparents, Charles & Harty, married when she was
16 and he was almost 32. They had seven children – five girls and
two boys: Hattie, Angeretta, Julia, Lena, Olive, Charles, & Jeremiah.
All except Julia married and raised a family.
