29 April – Asa Taft – Ancestor# 84
Today, I remember my 4th Great-grandfather, Asa Taft. He was born on 29 April 1774 in Uxbridge, Worcester, Massachusetts Colony.
Asa married Sarah Whitney on 18 September 1794 in Peru, Berkshire County, Massachusetts. After Sarah died in 1813, Asa married Lucy Fuller in Triangle, Broome County New York. Asa may have married a third time, to Lucy Wilson, sometime after 1825.
He died on 17 March 1839 in Triangle, Broome County, New York and was buried in the Taft Cemetery in Triangle.

There are no known photos, paintings, or drawings of Asa Taft (1774-1839). If you have an image of Asa or know more about his life, I would love to hear from you.
If Asa is your ancestor, I would love to share information with you. Please let me know how we are related. Also, like me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, or comment at the bottom of this post.
16 April – Stephen Taft
Today, I also remember my 6th great-grandfather, Stephen Taft. He was the second ancestor born on 16 April. Stephen was born in 1710 in Uxbridge, Province of Massachusetts Bay (Now Worcester County, Massachusetts). Stephen married Mary Lewis on 27 March 1733 in Uxbridge. I believe they had 10 children including my 5th great-grandfather Silas Taft. Stephen died on 3 February 1803 in Uxbridge. (His burial details are unknown.)

 Some researchers suggest he was born in Mendon, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Again, I have not independently researched Stephen and cannot confirm which birth location is more likely.
