George Norton1

Family:

Biography:
  • George Norton was born s 1670.2
  • In 1704 George Norton was living in Brookhaven, New York.3
  • ***Research Conclusion: In the Townsend handwritten genealogy George Norton (s1670-) supposedly had a son George b 13 Sep 1724. The VR of Suffield CT show a George Norton, son of George Jr & Agnis Austin b 13 Sep 1724. I think Hannah Maria Townsend (who wrote the genealogy) got the George Norton's mixed up.
