I have in my possession a well-worn copy of the History of Ancient Woodbury, Connecticut from the First Indian Deed in 1659 to 1854 including the towns of Washington, Southbury, Bethlem, Roxbury, and a part of Oxford and Middlebury. This book was written by William Cothren in 1854 and is now on-line and searchable, as part of the University of Michigan's Digital Library. Searchable History of Ancient Woodbury, CT. The format of this volume is oodles of lists of political, religious, military, and fraternal entries (primarily just say that they were a member of such & such and are not indexed). The real meat of the volume is in the Family Histories, which are indexed and contain a vast amount of information.To order a copy of the History of Ancient Woodbury, Connecticut by William Cothren
