About The Folsom Family
Please sign in to see more.
If any of my descendents ever read this I would like to tell you that although it is fun to find out about the past, it really doesn't  mean that much. It is not the past that is important, it is who you are now in the present and how you live your life today and in the future and how you prepare your children for the future that matters. Now that I have told you that, enjoy your visit. I have tried to make this as accurate as I can, but there may be errors. This has been a labor of love for me. Most of the research and work was done  for me. The Folsom information came from the Folsom Family Association  genealogy. The McCallum side was researched by my Aunt Barbara McCallum.  My sister Nancy Thibeault also did a lot of research. She also obtained the birth  and death records so that she could join the Daughters of the American Revolution. My main  accomplishment is just compiling the information here. The 
 most rewarding part of it for me was doing the Smith, Briggs, and Jacobs  branches of the tree. My mother, Dorothy Elizabeth McCallum Folsom gave me a  box of papers from my paternal grandmother Henrietta Jacobs Briggs Folsom. This  box was a treasure trove of information. There was a hand written Briggs  genealogy that was probably done by my great grandfather Henry Gorham Briggs.  Henrietta researched the Smith and Jacobs branches and wrote some wonderful  remembrances of her youth in the 1880s. The only frustrating part of it for me  was that many of the pictures in the box didn't have any names on them. I have  scanned them and they are in the photo section. I have recently made the connection to John and Priscilla Alden, who came over on the Mayflower. This gives me a great feeling of accomplishment to complete the task that my Grandmother Henrietta tried to do her whole life.
 I was doing some searching on line investigating Captain Benjamin Jacobs, who was a Salem sea captain, and I found a geneology tracing the Jacobs family back to George Jacobs Sr. who was accused of being a witch, and was hanged in 1692. I hope you enjoy your visit.
