Thank you
Hi Janet,
Thank you for making those changes, and so quickly too!
I put in a few dozen such requests and maybe half have responded, so I feel good having this one done.
I’d love to see Herrick done. He has been a special cause of mine since I was a kid, a mystery that I had no information on. A distant cousin of mine, Rebecca Bromley Guenther, we share a common ancestor, Bethuel Bromley 1737-1808, crack the case and determined he was my great great grandfathers little brother. They were buried close to each other but no one remembered who he was so now I feel glad he’s no longer forgotten.

Certainly no apology needed at all! I get so turned around just dealing with my own family, especially because they keep using the same names over and over again generation after generation, I can’t imagine how you can keep up with so many different names and families.

Once again, I’d like to thank you for all that you have done!

Hello,
Betsy Bromley Sherman #103109769
The text on her page says “daughter of Bethuel Bromley and Lucinda Burt”
The parental section has Barton Bromley as the father, which is correct.
She had a grandfather, uncle and brother named Bethuel but not her father.
She also had a brother that is not listed amongst the siblings,
Herrick Bromley #6666082
Could you please make these changes?
Thank you so very much!

RE: Parker Sawyer 87185926
The article is about Parker found not guilty of a charge filed by a servant.
I think that that paper is a likely source for his obituary.

RE: Abigail J. Pitkins
No problem. I think that the main reason I put in the edit..was that you had birth YEAR of 1808 for Abigail. Then I realized there were different birth DAYS ..after I put in the edit. That was why I mentioned mother's birth year.. in relation to the 1808 year for Abigail. Anyway.. thanks for all of your submissions. I use Findagrave a lot in my research.

RE: Abigail J. Pitkins
I'm sorry.. at that point I was probably confusing myself! I just went back and double checked two different links to the Cemetery transcriptions and they both match.
The discrepancy is between the transcriptions (Sep 6)and The Pitkin Family in America book (Sep 8).

Here are the two different listings:

PITKINS
Russell, d. 16 Mar 1863, 61, [soldier 1812, son of Stephen & Abigail [(BUCKLAND)] PITKIN, Vt.]
Clarissa Horsford, wife, d. 19 Jan 1852, 46, [Vt.]
**Abigail, 6 Sep 1832 - 27 Jan 1854
George W., 5 Oct 1824 - 8 Jun 1851
John H., 3 Jun 1842 - 2 Sep 1862
Ch. of Russell & Clarissa PITKINS

RE: Abigail J. Pitkins
Happy to give you sources. I was looking for somewhere to put that with the correction.

I've been researching the Pitkin family for over 30 years and have found many small errors in the A.P. Pitkin book.

I will admit that I have only recently started working on this particular line, so I haven't found proof of all items in Pitkin Genealogy, such as Russell and Clara's marriage date of 1824. That date, along with birth years of Abigail's siblings supports 1832 birth year.

For Abigail..
First.. her mother Clarissa was born in 1806 .. based on her own FindaGrave Entry..and the 1850 Census Clarissa is listed as age 44.

In same census Abigail is listed as age 19
Year: 1850; Census Place: Schroon, Essex, New York; Roll: M432_504; Page: 288A; Image: 207

I may have the wrong day..as transcriptions of the South Schroon Cemetery on Rootsweb has death date as 6 Apr 1832

PITKINS
Russell, d. 16 Mar 1863, 61, [soldier 1812, son of Stephen & Abigail [(BUCKLAND)] PITKIN, Vt.]

RE: Birdie Eva Coombs

The photo of the gravestone on the memorial shows birth year as 1888.

And page 240 of "The Fish Family in England and America," by Lester Warren Fish, 1948, states that she "...was b. Aug. 8, 1888, the dau. of Charles and Alice (Howard) Coombs ... ."

I hope this helps.

Nothing serious or problematic. Just busy with regular life stuff. Thanks again. I will be incrementally updating those memorials with more accurate transcriptions from your photos. The Wallingford Historical Society records were helpful summaries but precise reports of the actual inscriptions on the stones. Your photos with the right amount of dark shadows in the carved letters with rare exceptions, makes the stones easy to read for the transcriptions.

I finally got around to using your beautiful photos to update the transcriptions of the inscriptions. Thank you, thank you! I am also pleased that your suggestions and the suggestions of others for corrections to several memorials was processed by the F-a-G system as I have been M-I-A for a while.

RE: Parker Sawyer 87185926
My source cites "Jim Hier rec."
Mr Hier was seeking those records some years ago.
I guess nothing confirming was found.

I found Parker in the 1850 census in Batavia, Kane, IL under the name "Crockwell Sawyer" age 32 b. VT "clerk rr depot".

Eunice Warner Priest memorial# 143609444
Janet, Thank you for all your help on this. I did find a few interesting things about Eunice. For one, I don't think Ethan was the son of Elijah Priest. In 1790 Eunice moved with her parents and Ethan SPENCER "son of said Eunice" from Harvard, MA. to Bolton, MA. (Ethan was born about 1786. Ethan does have some records in Pittsford, VT).

Then when she tried to file for a Rev. War Widow's pension (unfortunately no date is given) she was rejected on the grounds of "no marriage between herself and Elijah". I have been unable to find a marriage record for Eunice with an unknown Spencer or for Eunice and Elijah Priest.

Thanks again, Shelly

Eunice Warner Priest memorial# 143609444
Janet, Thank you for permission to use Eunice's headstone photo. As to Elijah Priest, he was born June 20, 1760 in Harvard, Worcester, Massachusetts. A record has been found for that. He "is said to have died" April 15, 1813 in Pittsford, Rutland, Vermont, however, no record has been found for his death. The info is strictly taken from other Ancestry Trees and no one cites their source for the info., so that date is unverified.

Thanks for your help, Shelly
