I freely share my genealogy research, but ask that you NOT upload to any website that in turn sells that material on CD, or otherwise assumes that they have publishing rights. Thanks.

When I identify which line the links point to, Thomas Leavitt refers to the one born 1616 who immigrated to the Hampton NH area in the 1630s, and his many descendants.

John Leavitt was born 1608 and settled in Hingham MA in the 1630s, after first arriving in Dorchester. Since John Leavitt's descendants are more numerous, we break those branches down to his 5 sons who had families, Samuel, Israel, Moses, Josiah, and Nehemiah, and his daughters.

Photos of Leavitt gravestones and places taken at the Leavitt Reunion in Charlemont MA in 2007.  These Leavitts are of the Josiah line.

Photos by Roland Rhoades. I wish now that I knew back in 2007 to save larger versions of the photos. Click on photos for larger versions, which opens a new window which you can close afterwards. If you want to copy the photos for your personal use, copy the larger version.
