You may have noticed when looking at what your ancestors did, where they moved, etc., that when they saw a good thing, they shared the info about it with their relatives. When they found new land to pioneer in, or a business opportunity that was becoming available, they told their relatives about it. Those relatives who shared their eagerness in the "land of opportunity" then jumped at the chance to succeed together. That's how much of the Lamson and Dodge families from Exeter, NH became successful by sharing the secrets and business of pottery. The Robinsons with lumber, the Dotys with farming, and many more you'll see throughout family trees.
Now I'm continuing the tradition by sharing an opportunity with you... AMSOIL. This is a proven business that is exploding with new products and innovative marketing! Some of our ancestors made fortunes in the age of pioneering the American frontier. Now we can do the same on the information frontier.

FIRST GENERATION 1. Arthur WORMSTALL. Children of Arthur WORMSTALL and Rebecca SCADLOCK were: +2 i. Rebecca WORMSTALL. SECOND GENERATION 2. Rebecca WORMSTALL was born in 1663.

"Daggett" was also at one time spelled with one "t", and at times with one "g". Nothing has been found of the birth or parentage of William Daggett. There is a tradition that he came from Scotland. His name first appears at Saco, ME., Dec. 3, 1861, when he is granted ten acres of land at the head of his father Wormstall's lot. William Daggett may be descended from William (5610) Doggett, who "28 2nd mo 1647" bought house and land at Rehoboth, MA; but this is only conjecture, and the writer has not found any further record of William of Rehoboth, or earlier record of William of Saco, to aid in proving or disproving this theory. "The early settlers of Saco and vicinity were not like other fathers of New England, religious sectarians flying from the intolerance of their native land. "They were emigrants from motives of interest, brought hither by the same impulse that even at the present day (1893) carries men of an enterprising character to the very corners of the earth."
