I am trying to find a family for my Jabez Squires, born about 1776 in Fairfield, CT. He moved between New York and Pennsylvania a few times. A possible brother is Aaron.
Dna connections show that my family should be related to this Aaron and a Sturgis/Sturges Squires.
I have found a brief bit of information on the web that states:
" Squires Family from Connecticut of which Peter and Sturgis were members, was among the first to locate in Columbia township. Owing to land difficulties, it appears that only Peter remained and he removed to Ridgebury township where he settled permanently. Sturgis, a younger brother, returned East, joined the Connecticut Militia and served three years, or until 1815, during the War of 1812. After the war he went to the Lake country, thence Ridgebury where he continued to
reside until his death "
Does anyone have information on any of these men, their parents or who the rest of the Squires family was that moved into Bradford County, PA in the early 1800s?
