Family Tree Project

We are preparing a special project that will allow Borden descendents to trace their family back to the original Richard Borden who arrived in Boston in about 1635.

If you are have information about your family back to the late 1800s, perhaps the time of your great-grandfather, or his father. please send this information to us and we will try to make a connection with the information we have.

Send full name, place and dates of birth and death, and information about other family members (sisters, brothers, children, parents). We will contact you to follow-up.

Thank you for your assistance.

  5. Andrew J Borden says:

    Hi I’m Andrew Borden, I am a direct descendant of John Borden, the son of Richard. I had done some research of my family It goes something like Richard>John>John II> Joseph>Theophilus(grew up in SC and moved back, don’t know the reason)>Holder>Charles (whom I even found a picture of, rare since he lived through the mid 19th century and even volunteered in the civil war) and the list goes on to eventually me.

  6. susan borden martinez says:

    I am looking for info on the Borden family that immigrated to Minnesota in the 1800s. I am the great great granddaughter of Patrick R Borden and Bridget Casey.

  7. Richard Borden, I believe, would be my 9th great-grandfather as well. His daughter Mary married John Cooke, their daughter Anna Amey Cooke married David Clayton. They had a son, also named David, who married Esther Taylor, who was from New Jersey. I believe they relocated to New Jersey in this generation. David and Esther had yet another David Clayton, who married Rebecca Thompson. Their son was Cornelius Clayton, who married Catherine Rogers. Their son John Clayton married Rebecca Johnson and they had a daughter, Deborah Ann Clayton. Deborah married Esek Gant. Their son, Elias Gant, married Mary Harvey and they became the parents of Theodore S. Gant. He and his wife, Clara Shafto, were the parents of Bruce Bronson Gant, Sr., who married my dear grandmother Leta Ward and they had my daddy, James Gant. From the time of the second David Clayton, through my grandfather Bruce Gant, the family remained in New Jersey. My father was born in Atlanta, Georgia and this is where our family (mostly) lives today. I never knew any of our New Jersey ancestors as my grandparents divorced when my dad was very young and had no contact with his father’s family.
