Text: Dr. Charles Banks, the Author of The History of Martha's Vineyard, or one of his researchers made an error. His book says that Peter Look and Sarah Jones had a son Benjamin Look b: 1778. The Vital Records of Conway, Massachusetts say " LOOK, BENJAMIN, ch. PETER and SARAH, Mar. 28, 1770, in Martha's Vineyard. " Our Look family comes from that Benjamin's line. The same Vital Records of Conway, Massachusetts lists the marriage of Benjamin and registers four of his children's birth. Not recorded are two more children that I know of, one being my GGGrandfather and the other his sister. Benjamin moved to the Springfield, Massachusetts area between 1796 and 1800. My GGGrand father was born there in 1810.
I can give you more details if you are interested.
I don't have much information on Silas Hillman's ancestors. I go back to John Hillman b: 1651, but I'm sure that there's a lot of missing info on John Hillman's descendants.
I would be happy to get information from you. If I can help you, let me know.
