The Mexican Branch of The Platt Family

Updated December 29, 2012

Ricardo G. Platt

rgplatt@cox.net

We are researching the Mexican Branch of The Platt Family. We are looking for descendants of Richard Platt of Ware, England (1604-1685), who arrived in New Haven CT, USA in 1638 and settled in Milford, CT in 1639. Seven generations later, Frederick Platt (1831-1893) went from Huntington, Long Island, NY, USA to the state of Sonora, Mexico. My info is at left.

Please feel free to exchange information about Frederick Platt ascendants and descendants. I am a descendant. Any comments, corrections, and additions will be appreciated.

You might also be interested in The Platt Family Association. It is for the descendants of Richard Platt of Ware, Herts., England and settled in Milford, CT in 1639 and/or of Thomas Platt settled in Burlington, NJ in c.1710. Their newsletter carries queries about these and other Platt lines. The newsletter editor is Richard N. Platt, Jr., richard.platt.sm.55@aya.yale.edu (permanent forwarding address)

The section "Trees, Reports, and Books" contains the Book: Frederick Platt. It has extensive information about its descendants (The Mexican Platts). Information for this Book gathered by myself and Jorge Platt, jorgeplatt@live.com

Frederick 1 is #121-151-24 in Charles Platt, Jr.'s Platt Genealogy_, 1963, on p. 123 and in this book he would be Frederick 8. No birth date is given, but he is son of Richard 7, who was bapt. 10 July 1786, Huntington, NY; d. April 1845, New York, NY; mar. 1)_____? ,2) Harriet Elizabeth Kirk (mother of John and Frederick). The rest of the line is: Scudder 6, Zophar 5, Jesse 4, Jonas 3, Isaac 2, Richard1.

Other Reports of the same "Trees, Reports, and Books" section show Richard Platt descendants. Information provided by Rondi Frankel, rondi.frankel@gmail.com
