This blog tells “the storied past” (and present) of areas in Stonington, Mystic, North Stonington and Groton through old family pictures and papers that have been passed to me from my many ancestors: Denisons, Averys, Randalls, Wheelers, Noyes, Stantons, Minors, Gates, etc. just to name a few.
Instead of scrolling down, as most blogs do, this has a static home page. You need to click on the “post” or article on the right column to read any post that interests you.
Since many old local area houses, barns, school houses and grave yards are deteriorating or are in the process of being torn down, I want to tell “their stories” before they are gone!
