Apple, I actually have a Lot Conant, no info., his dau. Abigail Conant married Nicholas Ober (January 16, 1710/11, Beverly). Wish I had more for you.

Barb - Is your interest in the Ober or Conant line? (I don't have anything on the Ober line)

Abigail Conant was my 1st cousin, 7x removed:

Abigail Conant b. 1690 Beverly, MA
m. 1st Nicholas Ober 16 Jan 1711 Beverly
m. 2nd John Thorndike 1732 Beverly

>Lot Conant 1658-1745

Apple, it is the Ober line. Nicholas Ober was the son of my direct ancestor, Richard Ober and wife, Abigail Woodbury. I have Nicholas's brother, Richard as my direct line. We aren't cousins yet, but there is hope.

I was born in Beverly, and we lived at Pride's Crossing. I'm a Thorndike, Woodbury and Rayment descendant among others. I'm not a Conant descendant, but there are many Conant marriages amongst the siblings and cousins in my tree.

Heather - I've always been fascinated by the relationships of early New England families. I'll trace out a line just to see if my cousin married one of their cousins [not related to me]. Lydia Conant in my line was the 1st wife of Daniel Carlisle. His 2nd wife was a cousin of hers. I don't have much on the surnames you mention but I know I wouldn't have to dig far to find connections.
