THIS SITE PROVIDES DETAILS OF DESCENDANTS OF PHINEAS UPHAM OF MASSACHUSETTS, WHO CAME FROM ENGLAND IN 163S, AND LIVED IN WEYMOUTH AND MALDEN. EMBRACING OVER FIVE HUNDRED HEADS OF FAMILIES, EXTENDING INTO THE TENTH GENERATION.
This genealogy has as its foundation the little book published in 1845 by Dr. Albert G. Upham, entitled ” Notices of John Upham and his Descendants ; ” and an incomplete, but very important Upham genealogy, showing many of the earlier generations in New England, collected by the well-known genealogist Thomas B. Wyman, a portion of which was printed in the JVeia England Genealogical and Historic Register, vol. 25, to which he had added notes as matter came to his knowledge, prior to his death some years ago. No attempt has been made to give particular credit to either of these pioneers in Upham genealogy for the reason that the entire work of each — omitting errors which have since been discovered — has been transferred to the pages of this book. Without the foundation afforded by the pains-taking labors of Dr. Upham and Mr. Wyman, this genealogy could not have been prepared.
I wish also to acknowledge that without the continued assistance and encouragement given me in collecting material, by Mr. Henry P. Upham of St. Paul, Minn., and the Rev. Dr. James Upham of Chelsea, Mass., my labor would have ceased, and the present end would not have been accomplished. So valuable has been the aid received from these gentlemen, I feel that while my name alone appears on the title page, they should share in any credit that may be thought to be due on account of its preparation.
The numerous others who have so kindly furnished records of particular branches, it is hoped, may find compensation with the re-appearance of their work in the pages which follow, and which are the result of a more or less connected effort, extending over the past seventeen years.
