RE: TItus Lyon

Good to hear from you again. It has been a while. If you run across Titus and Phebe in your journeys. Can you keep an eye out for Titus' mother, Thankful Mattison. Her husband Jacob Lyon is in Mettawee with his second wife Anna.

Thankful was the daughter of Ishmael and Deborah Parris Matteson. They have to be up there someplace. Last I knew Ishmael died in Danby area. He had quite a few kids.

I found a mention of one daughter married a John M. Bishop. She was a daughter of Ishmael and Deborah.

Thanks for your help. Maybe this year, I will make another trip up to the area.

RE: headstone photo
Cool! Maybe your husband's ancestors and mine were neighbors! I'd love to go back to Vermont. I was there 5+ years ago but was concentrating my effort on southern Vermont. Never made it up to Rutland County. Anyway, I do so appreciate it, Janet. Seeing the photo made this little girl real for me somehow.

Thank you so much, Janet, for taking the photo of little Carolina. I live in California, so it would be quite a trek for me. I really appreciate your trudging out there to take the photo!

RE: Satterlee Miller
The source for Satterlee's middle name came from the book, "God's Strange Work: William Miller and the End of the World" by David L. Rowe.

And actually, he lists Satterlee's name as Ebenezer Satterlee Miller.

RE: Joseph L. Vose
I couldn't be sure if it was a typo or what is on the stone, so I sent the request and posted the certificate.

If it is what the headstone shows, I have no problem with you changing it. The posted certificate is enough to show that there may be a mistake about the exact date. As to which is incorrect we may never know unless other documentation is found.

RE: Meeting House Cemetery
Just to let you know..I don't lift anything from a published work such as the book that Margaret Jenks has written. All of the cemetery burial information and listings that I have done are from the internet. I don't have that particular cemetery listing in front of me but will know next week where I obtained it from and will let you know so we can clear up this possible confusion.

RE: Meeting House Cemetery
I just found the cemetery transcription and then put the memorial pages in based on it. I didn't realize that someone else was working on this cemetery as there were no restrictions listed.

What can I do to make this ok?? Do you want me to delete the memorial pages that I have done for this cemetery because someone else is planning to put them in???

Thanks for bringing this to my attention,

RE: Edit for Col. Thomas Halsey
Also, some additional information; Thomas Halsey served as a US Army paymaster from June 1861 until February 1877.

RE: Edit for Col. Thomas Halsey
Hi Janet,

I resubmitted my edit, but this time I did not change the rank. If his gravestone identifies him with the rank COL, it's better to keep it that way.

The Historical Register and Dictionary of the US Army gives his highest rank as LTC, which is why I decided to change it.

Would you happen to have a photograph of his grave? It might avoid confusion in the future.

Maple Hill, etc.
Hi Janet, remember me? I know the weather in the east was bad this past winter, and in some places continues to be bad, but I was wondering if you could help me when you get a chance. I've had a few photo requests that have been sitting for over a year. Some at Maple Hill, and one at Factory Point. I had hoped that last spring/summer when there was good whether, there would be a volunteer that was willing to go there. Are those two cemeteries hard to get to? My grandmother's is the one request I have at Factory Point and it looks like no ever goes there. I thought maybe you might know why.

Hope you are well. Are you here in CA right now, or in VT?

RE: Lura adams and the Potter family
Janet Hi,
Well that made me laugh too! You become a detective with this kinda stuff and I find myself looking for that connection around every corner. I must figure out how it all fits....but yes the potters are my grandmothers mothers people. Victoria wilder potter1851-1935 I think and Alvin Wade Branch 1848-1929 were her Grandparents from Rutland Vermont. Victoria's great grandfather would have been David Potter 1767-1846 . David's wife Phobe was also named Potter! I would like to know anything you have or if you could suggest a book let me know! Thanks so much and we are all immigrants I m pretty sure ! However I really had no idea my family had been here for so dang long! I was looking forward to European relatives to visit! Thanks for all you do!

Oak Woods cemetery Chicago
Hi Janet

I noticed you have a few postings of people I am looking for grave info for Samuel Faulkner and his wife Cornelia. I was wondering if you know of a www site on which grave numbers are listed for people buried there? It is such a huge cemetery and I know local history and genealogy groups in some cities have started indexing large cemeteries so there is a place where one could go to get grave site locations when visiting. Was wondering if you know of such a site for Oak Woods on 67th? Thanks for any help you cans end my way

RE: Lura adams and the Potter family
Dear Janet,
I was just wondering , since you seem to be there for all the relatives I'm looking for, I thought maybe I'm related to you.
I noticed some great photographs you have posted on their memorials ! Even paintings and I thought well maybe....are you part of the Potter family from Rutland Vermont? Or are you just everywhere!
Thanks for all you do's inspiring . Sincerely, Jen Hart
