Business Records That Cover Almost a Century
Two generations of men in the Terry family in Simsbury kept accounts in a single account book from 1739 to 1829. These men were members of the third and fourth generations of Terrys born in the New World. They were descended from Stephen Terry who emigrated from England to Dorchester, Massachusetts in 1630 and who moved to Windsor, Connecticut about 1636.
