Bernadine Fawcett’s discovered intimate accounts of British terrorist’s activities and a connection to a L.I. patriot spy ring. Bernadine Fawcett, B.A. G.S.S (Fordham University) Author, Columnist, Lecturer, Counselor, Television / Radio Personality; researched that the Burr’s revealed in this book were of Vice President Aaron Burr’s genealogy. Rev. Andrew Eliot’s wife was a direct descendent from Alfred the Great as was Aaron Burr, and Burr’s first cousin, Thaddeus Burr. Thaddeus Burr informed Rev. Andrew Eliot of Gen. Washington’s secret correspondence which he sent (which on occasion John Hancock also personally delivered.) to his father/reverend of the same name in Boston.

 Time travel Revolutionary War; Thaddeus Burr, Sheriff  counterspy to prevent Bristish terrorism . Family members correspondence revealing facts about Gen. Geo. Washington, war activities, the political polarities, everyday customs and attitudes in the 1700’s pertaining to the views: of equality to represent religion, men, women, children, and slaves.

Every step of the research is disclosed in this book “Missing Links To The Culper Spy Ring?” which led to the theory which connects Fairfield Connecticut’s spy ring to the Culper Spy Ring including how and why this information is offered for public consumption. 

Moreover, the Burr family genealogy is traced from Fairfield Connecticut Rev. Andrew Eliot’s wife whose maiden name was Mary Pynchon, Thaddeus Burr (sheriff whose document shows payment for supporting the patriot General Assembly). and  AAron Burr (not yet the Vice President of America) as directly descendent from Alfred the Great ; therefore they are cousins. Moreover, all of them held the common purpose of freeing the colonies from Britain’s rule.
I had determined not to write by the post which has been expected all day-because I had no news of any importance to communicate-but as Capt. Burkes, who lately made his escape from the prison ship at New York-favors me with a visit I embrace the opportunity-to send a line or two by him

Missing Links to the Culper Spy Ring? by Bernadine Fawcett, pages 336, price US $22.95, A 4 size 8 x 11.5 inches, published by Infinity Publishing. com, USA ISBN 0-7414-2159-3. < www.>

The book is a result of Bernadine Fawcett’s research on the war letters she inherited through her husband’s stepfather. Her curiosity led her to discover the intimate account of a Patriot Spy Ring. The main links were Rev. Andrew Eliot, Vice President Aaron Burr, George Washington, Thaddeus Burr, General John Hancock and Col. Jackson. Author argues that the present American freedom is due to the co-ordinated works of the patriots against the British colonialists. To prove her point she has included liberally, in the book scanned letters, photos and artifacts of that time. The book is a sort of investigative journalism. It is also a part of history of American war against the British Crown. Research students of American history and the academicians will find {the} book immensely helpful.

Patchogue author has history buffs buzzing
Patchogue author has history buffs buzzing
by Brian Curry The Long Island Advance (newspaper)

Though her book was published in 2005, Patchogue author and practising relationship counselor Bernadine Fawcett’s historical Missing Links to the Culper spy Ring? has kept Revolutionary War buffs buzzing straight up to today with her convincing argument of a spy ring that kept information flowing to General Washington and the rebels.
The added fact that the author herself is related to Vice President Aaron Burr and his relatives formed an information highway with everything from troop movements to battles being waged gives these facts a personal connection.
A great majority of the book is the correspondence from two relatives of the Burr’s: Reverend Andrew Eliot and his father of the same name. Mixed in between their seemingly benigh letters that includes everything from how good the harvest went to how children kept themselves occupied in the period from 1774 to 1778 are reports of troop desertions and English ships sailing up Long Island Sound.
Though the younger of the Rev. Eliots was in Connecticut and his father in Boston, there are also numerous mentions of movements or battles in Huntington, Setauket and Southold, showing that the north shore of Long Island played a part in the war to make us free.
What impresses the reader is the thorough and painstakingly cross-referenced research that Fawcett has put into these handed down family heirlooms. Though she has reproduced the body of each letter in easy to read font and highlighted or underlined the spy related passages, she also includes as a matter of authenticity and proof the original letters, written in the handwriting and spelling of the time.
To further establish the timelines of both the letter writers and the revolutionary war news contained with their correspondence, she has exhaustively conducted further research with outside historical groups such as the Fairfield Historical Society. Fawcett makes liberal use of footnotes, using them to further flesh out and explain people, events or things alluded to with the letters.
While the evidence of the information passed back and forth convinced me that these two men of the cloth were indeed passing info that would easily be of help to the colonies and have them arrested as traitors if they fell into the wrong hands, what is almost as fascinating is the tidbits of life in that day.
In everything from alluding to bouts of dysentery and smallpox in their town, to the passing on of their feelings about leaders of their day, the letters bring history alive in a very human way. It’s one thing to think of General Washington as the “Father of our Country” here in 2000, but you start to look at him in another way when you hear him described and praised by men who knew him and are judging him from his actions as they happen.
Whether it is the Eliots, the Burr family, Washington, or John Hancock, you realise that these letters are not an early form of name-dropping, but are instead the actual thoughts and doings of at least some of our founding fathers who knew and broke bread with our letter writers.
This book is not a novel so don’t expect battle scenes or a romantic subplot, but it is a fascinating look at the everyday life in the midst of a war where information took days and sometimes weeks to reach the person who needed it.

Missing Links To The Culper Spy Ring?
Bernadine Fawcett
1094 New Dehaven Street, #100, West Conshohocken, PA 19428-2713

The American Revolution was more than opposing forces meeting openly on various fields of battle. There was also a covert conflict of spies and what we would call today 'cover operations'. In "Missing Links To The Culper Spy Ring?", counselor, columnist, author, radio and television personality Beradine Fawcett shares her years of personal research and her genealogical resources (which ties her to the family of Aaron Burr). Vice President Aaron Burr corresponded with the Reverend Andrew Eliot's wife. Bernadine Fawcett inherited these letters through her husband's stepfather, and through these letters uncovered intimate and hitherto unpublished accounts of what is known to historians as the 'Patriot Spy Ring'. It turns out that Reverend Eliot was an obscure spy for the colonial rebellion and provided information about the British and passed information to and between key American leaders: George Washington, General John Hancock and Thaddeus Burr( first cousin to Aaron Burr). If it hadn't been for the efforts of Reverend Eliot and his co-spy father in Boston, the British might well have succeeded in crushing the American Revolution. The pivotal role played by Reverend Eliot and a patriot spy named Thaddeus Burr will prove to be fascinating reading for students of American history in general, and the Culper Spy Ring in particular. Comprised of photocopies of the original letters along with a printed text of their contents, as well as historical photographs and period newspaper articles, "Missing Links To The Culper Spy Ring?" is a seminal contribution to American Revolutionary History Studies and an important, strongly recommended addition to academic library American History reference collections.
