You ask for persons to contact you via Email, as you have in previous postings, I see, but Ancestry.com doesn't list your address, nor your name, unfortunately. However, I've corresponded with you before - you are Mel Oliveira, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
. You contacted me via Email, 28 & 29 Aug & 1 Sep 2006, and I responded on 28 & 30 Aug 2006, providing you with the information shown in my Chamberlain research records here, with some suggestions for further genealogical research on your part. What I see that is new, in your posting now, is that "Solomon, in his papers writes that he had a son, Lorenzo." So, please advise me of the source for this important piece of information. Presuming that it can be shown to be authentic and accurate, this would confirm that Solomon's known son named Alonzo, b. c1810, Adams, Berkshire Co., MA (per the Family Group Record prepared by the late Chamberlain genealogist David Conrad Chamberlin, Sr.), is in fact the same person as your Lorenzo Dow Chamberlin, b. 16 Apr 1810, NY, as we have suspected, right along, was the case. For the benefit of other readers, this is Solomon(6) Chamberlain, b. 31 Jul 1788, Canaan, Litchfield Co., CT, d. 20 Mar 1863, Washington, Washington Co., UT [Joel(5), Joseph(4), Joseph(3), Clement(2), William(1) Chamberlain - Solomon was first married, 23 Oct 1809, in Pownal, Bennington Co., VT, to Hopestill "Hope" Haskins, daughter of Philip Haskins, who was the first of at least three wives, and who died, 12 Jan 1847, in "LDS Winters Quarters", Pottawattamie Co., IA, aged 59 years. Solomon Chamberlain was an early convert to and missionary of the Mormon Church. He introduced the church to Brigham Young and later was in the first party into Salt Lake, according to my sources here. A very interesting family, indeed! Solomon's second wife, Mrs. Emiline (Sheppard) Waterman, he married, 15 Jan 1846, in the Mormon city of Nauvoo, IL, and his third wife, Terressa Morse, he married in 1848, in Washington Co., UT. A fourth wife may have been Polly Haskins, but this remains uncertain. Please advise whether you have accurate records for these other wives and their known children. Also, can you identify the boys named Charles, age 17, b. MO, and Robert, age 16, b. OH, listed in Solomon's family in the 1850 Census?
