The Founders of Hartford

There are 163 names of Founders on the monument. Previously, on this website, there were links to the Founders on the monument, giving a small biography, spouse(s) and children. The information on these old links came from "The Original Proprietors", by Mary K Talcott, from "Memorial History of Hartford County", published in 1886. An artifact of its time, "The Original Proprietors" has been found to be so rife with errors than we have discontinued these links. A major project documenting the Founders and their families to the third generation is in progress. We will be re-establishing links at the time that all are documented using contemporary genealogical standards, and a book is expected to be published in the hopefully not too distant future.
