2020 Reunion Announcement

Purpose of the Society (what we are all about)

We wish to honor the life and work of Thomas Stanton, colonial founder of Hartford and Stonington, CT. He helped mold and shape their size, shape, and general character. He helped forge a society that preserved and advanced the best of European culture while respecting the needs and desires of the local native American population.

The purpose of the organization is to bring together widely spread cousins into a social fabric for the enjoyment of family and local history, and for exchanging information in the pursuit of genealogy and family pedigrees. We hope to instill a joy in visiting New England and eastern Connecticut. We believe that by studying Thomas Stanton and his compatriots and by viewing his historical sites that we can actually feel the sense of history and its energy. (from Thomas Stanton Newsletter Number 3, December 1998.)
