 "The Battle of Gorton Heights" by William W. Harris. This book is a "collection of narratives, official reports, records, etc of the storming of Fort Griswold, and the burning of New London by British troops under the command of (the traitor) Brig. Gen Benedict Arnold, on the sixth of September, 1781. Stanton men were killed and wounded there that day.
 "An Uncommon Union: Henry B. Stanton and the Emancipation of Elizabeth Cady" by Linda C. Frank. Both Henry B. and Elizabeth Cady are descendants of Thomas and Anna Lord. From the author's notes: "When Elizabeth Cady met Henry B. Stanton in 1839 she was the privileged daughter of a wealthy New York lawyer who was expected to marry well and live quietly and gracefully. Instead, over the objections of her family, she married a passionate abolitionist and entirely changed the trajectory of her life by soon becoming the leader  of the nineteenthcentury woman suffrage movement,"
