Another double cousin connection! My line also goes Samuel, Samuel and then to Susannah Blodgett who married James Simonds. He was the brother of your Huldah Simonds who married Susannah's brother Samuel Blodgett.

We meet again. I think it has something to do with the town of Woburn. This time I am adding you to my family tree to avoid further confusion. You did provide me some additional information. Thank you! We meet at Ebenezar Reed and Huldah Blodgett through the Reed family.
