There were two principal founding clans (progenitor born before 1800) in the northeast U.S. with three or more consecutive generations of Deaf people; these were Brown-Swett-Sanders and Jellison-Lovejoy-Berry. The latter includes twenty-five Deaf members and presents several major nodes in the network of kinship relations. The progenitor of the Jellison family was Nicholas, probably from Kent. His great great grandson, Samuel, moved far north in Maine and had a son, Moses, who married his cousin, Esther Ham. They had seven children, three of them Deaf, all of whom married Deaf, thereby creating important links for themselves and their descendants. Moses and Esther's Deaf child, IsaacD, attended the Asylum and married Lydia LovejoyD, whose branch of the family had eight Deaf members. The Berry clan had twenty three Deaf members spread over four locations, two of them in Maine.
