Randy,
Do you have any Hazards from Lebanon, Connecticut 1862? I just found some in the "Genealaogies of the Potter Families and Their Descendants in America (NEHGS) I checked out
from the Georgina Cole Library in Carlsbad:
Thomas Cranston Hazard marriage to Harriet (Bennet) Potter (part 4) page 4, person number 139 and 139.
also Thomas Cranston Hazard and Lucinda (Loomis) Potter (possibly a second wife) also of Lebanon, Connecticut.
