My mother is a Converse and I have been through the Book by Charles Allen Converse via the internet (Heritage Quest/ Books) plus the book by, William G Hill of Malden, Mass c 1887 call The Family Record of Deacon James W Cpnverse and Elisha S Converse. I saved them to my computer. So I guess I am related also. My line is through Deacon Edward> Sergt Sam'l>Samuel>Pain> Capt Pain>Jeremiah>Parley>Squire>Wilbur. Off the top of my head but may have missed one. Wilbur died in New Orleans just before his son Wilbur Hudson, Sr was born, he then had 8 children with Maude Harper, (she being adopted by the Harpers). His first born, Wilbur Hudson Jr, is my grandfather. He was born in Cicero near Chicago, Ill in 1902 and is buried in Seattle, Washington.
There is also another prospective cousin, Troy Goss, related somehow through Asa Converse>Erastus, Sr> John> daughter Alice. He is stuck at Asa. Is there anything I can help with to get updates. My Converse are very vague and did not have many children. Longer story but not for the Public boards. I can give some info. What do you think? I prefer to do information through my family Tree email. I would check it more often, email@example.com
