his web site is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Richard Genson's descendants in the United States. Richard arrived with his parents from England around 1763, settling in the colony of Massachusetts. At the age of fifteen he ran away from home to join the continental army. His parents were loyal supporters of King George and were bitterly disappointed in him. It is believed that they returned to England leaving Richard in the Americas by himself. Richard served in the NY Levies during the war stationed at Ft Klock which was near his eventual homestead in Butternuts, NY.
I am interested in obtaining electronic copies of any pictures, stories or documents that anyone would like to share with our extended Genson family. I am especially interested in documents that can verify the genealogy information that I have on this web site. Since most of this information was accumulated via the internet, I have no way of verifying it's authenticity. You can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
