I was wandering around the interwebs searching for information on some of my ancestors in New England in the 1600s when I found what I had always known from this and that and the other but never bothered to nail down wham wham wham and now it is, the olde Cogswell homestead in Essex, Massachusetts. Fortunately for me it has been transformed into a historical place called Cogswell’s grant, and is open to the public so I may hope that one day I, or to put it better, we, may go there and visit.
