• Hello! I am a descendent of Elijah Hyde (born 1754) who married as his 2nd wife, Rebecca Stark (born 1780). They were married and lived in Grand Isle, Vermont. Elijah died in Grand Isle in 1820. I am seeking documentation on their children, most specifically on their son Ahi Hyde (born 1811) who married Eliza Chamberlain (born 1816). They were married in 1836 in Chazy, New York. I am looking for a will for Elijah Hyde and birth records of his children with Rebecca Stark and any other pertinent documents/pictures. My line — Elijah Hyde – Ahi Hyde – John E. Hyde (married to Mary Z. Bullis) to their daughter, Lucy Gorham Hyde (who married George Leon Graham) to their daughter Dorothy Graham (my grandmother). Thank you!

  • Dori, at the bottom of our writeup on William Hyde of Norwich https://www.hydegenealogy.com/?page_id=619 is a link to the Hyde genealogy book on his descendants. Volume 1 pg 619 Elijah’s children with Rebecca Stark. The tree on Family Search is here, and you can click on “Sources” for specific documentation https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/LVQ2-JXC – you’ll have to scroll to the bottom to find Rebecca Stark and his children, including Ahi. Cutter mentions Elijah in New England Families, Genealogical and Memorial: A Record…Vol 4. Wills for Grand Isle are not online, you’d need to go to a Family History Center and check the index for vols 1-4 to see what’s available https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/247086?availability=Family%20History%20Library or you could visit the Grand Isle Historical Society (scroll to view) https://vermonthistory.org/franklin-and-grand-isle-county-museum-directory Happy hunting!
