Genealogical Information [subseries]

Scope note: The genealogical information subseries is arranged primarily by family. It contains family trees, essays, and materials collected about each family’s history, including commercially produced family histories for some of the lines. The Bailey line files contain the family history of Norton Townshend’s second wife, Margaret Bailey. Information on the Wing line relates to ancestors of Charles Wing, husband of Townshend’s daughter, Alice. The Wood line is comprised of information on the family of Townshend’s first wife, Harriet. The general genealogy information file is comprised of tips on genealogical research and tools useful to the genealogist, collected by the avid genealogists of the Townshend and Dodge families. Research by Alice Dodge Wallace, great-granddaughter of Norton Townshend, includes a number of note-cards with information on her ancestors and family members. Research by Wallace’s research consultant, Dr. M. Susan Barger is contained in a 450-page document which illuminates in great detail the many lines of the Townshend, Dodge, Wing, Hyde, and related families.
