Grandpa Rust had a lot of ancestors that were on, in, and around Nantucket Island and County in early Massachusetts history!
I am going to start to document some of this here on this page, starting with a great online source, the Nantucket Historical Association, Research Library and Archives, and the Barney Genealogical Record.
Here is another link for more information: the Starbuck/Coffin Family at Geni.com.
Grandpa’s FIFTH Grandfather was Timothy WHITE, a Graduate of Harvard, and a teacher on Nantucket Island where he met and married Susanna GARDNER.
Nantucket Surname Connections Include
Susanna, and her father John GARDNER.
Abigail, and her father Edward STARBUCK.
John, and his father Timothy WHITE.
