Adding Photo
Good evening Janet,

My father and I were just in Pawlett for his mothers funeral. My father had asked me to take some photos of his mothers headstone and the cemetery as he is getting older and won't be able to travel and lay flowers and so forth. Could you do this massive favor for me and perhaps email them to me? It would mean a great deal to both him and I.

Dear Janet,

RE: Phillip Crain photo
Too funny, Janet...we've been talking about bringing along a mirror (your tips) to compare it with the fabric reflectors. If you see a family of three out in a Vermont cemetery, stop and say "Hi!" (it's probably us). ~Cheers

RE: Fox edits
hi- this family is rather extensively covered in "a history of that part of the Fox family descended from thomas fox of cambridge" pg 105. it is readable on line. i know a document record is preferable but i didn't find one either and the book proved quite accurate in most cases. it's your call to accept it or not. thank you for all your work, cheryl

RE: Lucinda (Hulbut) Miller
No problem, Janet - I thought it was a typo because of all the Hurlburt research I have been doing [Census records, death certificates, birth cert., etc. are notorious for errors]....I was surprised to see "Hurlbut" is a recognized surname.

Early stone masons also made spelling errors and that complicates things. I wish findagrave had a soundex feature because I also noticed many duplicates created for Hurlbert as opposed to Hurlburt - makes it difficult to search.

Thanks for your kind reply. Cheers, Shirleen

Never mind question about sex of babies. I was able to make out the carving on the base of the headstone. Someone during period obviously paid to have 3 son 3 daughter carved.

Sorry to bother

72580740 sex? of infants
Have you got something other than Merrill Memorial page 490 family #2001 for sex on the 6 infants Betsey & Ashbel lost in Castleton VT?

Normal family Merrill boys to girls ratio is 2:1 rather than average American 1:1

RE: Susan Barker
Janet, I posted a pic of the line for the source, which you may delete after viewing. The birth section of "Washington County, NY, Quaker Records" published in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, vol XLVI, April 1915, pg 124, said she was the child of Slocum and Hannah Barker and gave her birthdate as 10-8-1811 in Cambridge. Memorial 65051996

I, like you, don't give much credibility to on-line trees. My grandfather (lived and died in Michigan) is attached to someone of the same name and birth year who lived and died in New York! Refuses to correct the tree even after I sent naturalization and other sources for her person. Go figger!

I also mentioned in my email that I found an index to a marriage record that should be avaliable at Cumberland Town Hall, but it mentions in the index that George's father was William Wilkinson, and his wife was Lydia Whipple.

Thank you for your attention to detail.

RE: Jonathan Colvin Coombs

Pursuant to "The Fish Family in England and America," by Lester Warren Fish, 1948; page 164:

"Jonathan Colvin Nelson Coombs (always known as J.C., or Jake), son of Charles and Alice (Howard) Coombs, was b. at Clarendon, Vt., Apr. 12, 1874 (the year in which President Hoover was born; also the year in which the elephant was first used as a symbol of the Republican Party, in a cartoon by Thomas Nast), and attended school in Rutland and Bennington, Vt. He worked for a time in the Batcheller Fork & Hoe Works in Wallingford, Vt., and on the Childs farm there. He then returned to his grandmother's farm at Ira, and later to the old Russell Fish farm. On Dec. 21, 1893, he m. Evy M. Kelley, dau. of Griggs and Ella (Lincoln) Kelley of Ira, Vt. She d. Jan 6, 1942."

I hope this helps. I have another source that indicated his nickname as "Jon," but since I am at work right now, I don't have that source at my disposal. I will send the reference along as soon as I can.

I hope this helps.
