The following is an email I received recently

And my reply to the above:

I am way behind in my genealogy work, as you can see. I found your email to be of interest
but unfortunately I have no information other than that on my web. If you should learn any more
please keep me updated. I am descended from Benjamin Burr who arrived around the
same time as Jehu. They may have been brothers but I do not know for sure. Jehu went on
to Fairfield and Benjamin to Hartford.
