Beaches and Silversmiths


This page was updated 8/1/2013 with a current URL for the silversmiths site. I removed the Ward surname references since I have determined that my Ward ancestors were never in New England at any time.

The following information is about 12 years old and probably should be used for further reseach only. Contact William at the site listed below.

I subscribe to many surname mailing lists through RootsWeb, which has helped me in my genealogical quest many times - too many to count. One Gardner list subscriber posted a brief description of a site devoted to silversmiths in colonial times.In it, I found the names of many ancestors from Connecticut, along with information on a line that I needed to do research on, the Wilcoxsons, last represented by Phebe, the second wife of Thomas Beach. I emailed the website's author, William Voss, for more information on his sources.

I was very impressed looking through his site by all the work he had done to compile the information.  Not only did he have the known 'smiths listed, he also had their relatives too.  My email to him included a link to my Beach page.  He used Legacy software to come up with the following list of people who were silversmiths and somehow related to the Beach brothers and Abigail Austin, a Fenn ancestor.

Check out William's American Silversmiths site - you might be glad you did!
