As I am sure you know Robert is a bilingual name Roberts is usually English. Some of her children are born in Sutton, NH and the others are born in Bradford, VT. If I am correct, Laura had a sister, Rosa BUSHAW, who married George's brother Ephraim Mark Collins ABBOTT this is my father's line. In order to assure this information is accurate, I need more proof. I am hoping they tie in with one of the families I traced through Raymond families of New England. In order to find James's true identity prior to leaving the service, I have to search various resources using the most used names over the generations. One family member was told to search the records of the deserters.
