Macomber notes

“Farm at Auction,” New Bedford Mercury, New Bedford, Mass., March 12, 1819


Posted here (above) as downloadable Word documents are a genealogical article about Elisha Macomber (ca. 1775-1855) of Dartmouth and New Bedford, Mass., as well as my notes about the Macomber family. My maternal grandmother was descended from Elisha Macomber.

The genealogical details are sketchy; the article contains a few facts which I was able to unearth. The genealogical notes were compiled while researching my Macomber ancestors from Southeastern Massachusetts. Most of them were in New Bedford, MA, with the period I was focusing upon being the nineteenth century.
