My Squires family history spans twenty generations over a 6 century period. In this report it is my intent to briefly outline the family history after they emigrated from England to America. Many of my ancestors were influential in the shaping of this country and have served in all of the major conflicts to secure our freedoms. Ancestors that fought tyranny in the early colonies were loyalists in the American Revolution, fought for states rights in the American civil war, participated in the war of 1812 and in World War I.

Researching the family has been a long and arduous task but is infinitely rewarding when discoveries are made finding ancestors who made a difference in this world of ours.

It is interesting to study the reasons for the migration of the family from Concord, Massachusetts to Fairfield, Connecticut and on to New York, Indiana and Iowa. Early moves from Massachusetts to Connecticut were to escape the taxing policies of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and its strict living requirements. It is certain that many of the later moves were motivated by the opening of the western areas where cheap land was available.
