I am looking for the "missing links". I have, through tattered family histories, found that I am a descendant of Prudence Wright, whose daughter, I'm told, married the son of Capt Job Shattuck. My mothers maiden name was Anna Jean Shattuck, and I'm told my grandfathers name was Mason Shattuck. I cannot find any reference anywhere to my grandfather or any connection to the earlier Shattuck lines. My mother was born in Groton, MA. Her Grandparents were Edna (Beal) Martin and Frederick Martin, also of Groton, MA. If anyone has any ideas who my missing links may be, please let me know....and I can fill you in on this end of the family. Thanks.

Kelly and Selinda: The best source of Shattuck familoy geneology is called the Shattuck Memorial. It is book put together by Lemuel Shattuck in the mid 1800's. You might be able to finda copy at or one of the other sources. My mother has her Dad's copy and it is very interesting. The story of Job Shattuck is also in some of the papers about the early days of Groton Mass. Job was involved in Shay's Rebellion and was sentenced to death for this conspiracy. He was later given a pardon. Hope this can help some with some of your research. Lynne

My father, Gilman Shattuck has a bunch of good info from about 1800 on. We are related to the Barnes and Withington clans in Hillsboro, N.H. His number is 603-464-3850. Our ancestral farm was in Salem N.H. where the HP plant is at. Also, we are related to Roger Conant, a former governor of Salem, Mass.

It has been two years since your request was posted. I, too, am a descendant of Prudence Wright. Her daughter, Caroline Matilda married Samuel Hartwell, one of my ancestors. Are you still trying to establish a connection to the Shattucks? Unfortunately, I can not find the documentation at this moment but I was thinking I had read that Mrs. Job Shattuck was Prudence's sister.

I live about 25 miles from Groton, MA, and have visited their public library. They have an excellent local history section. If you are still trying to make some connections, I might be able to help you. Please contact me at Please be forewarned, there are a lot of Shattucks around this area!
