Mrs. John McBain
Charlie,
Wanted to give you some additional information about Mrs. John McBain that is buried in Willow Grove Cemetery. Her given name is Ellen Davis. She was born in England. I know her mother's name was Letitia but don't have her father's name. She married my ancestor John MacBain who at the time was living in Indiana. They were married on February 2, 1854 in New Brunswick, NJ. Witnesses to the marriage were her mother Mrs. Davis and a Miss Walker who was living in their household at the time. A Rev. Alfred Stubbs preformed the ceremony. John's age is listed as 25 and Ellen is listed as 22 at the time.
Unfortunately Ellen died on April 18th, 1854 and was buried on April 19 1854. I have no idea what she died from although I am still in the process of finding that out. Again, Alfred Stubbs did her funeral. If I find out anything else I will let you know. Thanks so much. Anne Maesaka

This memorial is a duplicate of Find A Grave Memorial# 23843814 which was created in 2008. This memorial needs to be deleted.

My memorial has the named spelled correctly and uses the name on the headstone. I had no way of knowing if she had married.

Hi Charlie,
Wanted to let you know the above individual, Captain Joseph Kinsman you entered at Western Cemetery, Cumberland County, Maine has a stone at Riverside Cemetery, Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I am pretty sure it is the same man, since his wife is Lucidna Jordan Kinsman. He has three sons also engraved on the stone. The names appear on the back side of the grave of Lucinda's parents (Rufus Jordan) Take a look and decide if you may want to delete the entry at Western Cemetery.

Thanks so much,
Nora K

RE: Timely Attention to Edits
Charlie,
We moved here because our daughter also lives in South Portland. It is a really beautiful area. The beaches and coastline are magnificent. I hope I am not overwhelming you with all the edits from Riverside. Like your quote in your profile,genealogy evolves from a hobby to a passion, and I have immersed myself. The Riverside Cemetery has so much rich history. Thanks for your reply.

Best Regards

Timely Attention to Edits
Charlie,

You did a considerable amount of work at Riverside Cemetery in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland County, Maine. We recently relocated from New York to Maine, and Riverside Cemetery is very close to our new home. I want to thank you for your timely attention to the edits I have submitted to you. You do a wonderful and thorough job of including documentation about the person or persons. I appreciate your efforts. Thank You.

Regards,
Nora K

RE: Mckenzie family
Ok thanks, this is an odd part of a family where I think it might be related to mine but can't find the proof for it.

You added a bunch of memorials to the Shelburne area of NS and some have pictures and others a note about more info needed. Are those ones a headstone was not found but burial is within the cemetery? Thought id check before requesting photos.

Find A Grave Memorial# 136949650
Hello, Charlie,

You certainly have the thanks and appreciation of many, including me, for the invaluable results of your work with Find A Grave.

...Concerning this memorial for John William Croes, I suppose it is not entirely impossible, but I find it rather implausible that he was born to my GGGGgrandmother Martha (Crane) Croes when she was 67 years old. John William was more likely the son of her son, Rev. John Croes, JUNIOR, and his wife Eleanor (Van Mater) Croes. There seems to be an error in the Christ Church burial records, or in the transcription of them. Are you in any position to tackle the chore of making appropriate corrections?

Appreciatively,


David

You sent an edit wanting it changed from died 1970 to died May 1, 1970.
I had to look at that and make sure that was right and wonder why I only put 1970 and not the rest of it.
Fred did not die May 1, he died May 10.
There are two different entries in Ancestry.com's OR death index for Fred.
One says he was born about 1879 and died May 10, 1970.
The other entry does not say a year born, just died May 1, 1970.
Then, besides that, I have an Oregon death index on cd that I got some years ago. It only has one entry for Fred, that he died May 10th.
In "all the years" I have never in my life seen a state death index with so gosh dang many errors in it. It is almost "laughable" sometimes in places. Don't know why that happened? If careless people made the transcription of the state death index, or if the state index had so dang many errors in it for anyone to transcribe from or if it was hard to read the state index or what, I am not sure??
Anyway, Fred's funeral notice was in the newspaper May 12 and they just don't wait two weeks before they put a funeral notice into the newspaper.

RE: Samuel Stewart
I will see what I can find out in my containers. I have also. I do have a copy of that General Stewart's A Family Record, that he had his family publish. That is one thing I have been adding to my personal file.
Plus I have from the Stewart Clan Magazine, PG:291-292 Stewarts In Tolland County, Conn.
I have also learned from others that those that wrote some of these histories from ancestors back there, have made mistakes as we do today.
So I agree in many things that are put out there and must find the right sources for it all. I can't stand to not have things wrong and will try and make it right.
Thank you again.

RE: Samuel Stewart
Thank you for getting back with me. I will give you what I have but my proof is in containers because I have moved around a lot and my parents are passed away and I have a lot to sort through from their books and mine.

This is what I have
Patience Miriam Hungerford
B. 13 February 1753 New Fairfield, Fairfield, Conntecticut
CHR: 25 March 1753 same place
Died: 807-9 Gurley Cemetery recorded her name is Menam, died age 39 yrs. PG:96; FHL Film #: 0003343
Parents: Samuel Hungerford and Mary Graves
This is what I also found on Samuel Hungerford

(Stuart Clan Magazine; FHL Film #: 1,018,913
Born in Millington Ecclesiastical Society, East Haddam, Conn. Marriage recorded in 2nd Congregational Church, Rev. Ephraim Little, Pastor. Samuel moved to New Fairfield, Comm., before June 21, 1749. He was appointed representative for Deputy of the Freemen of New Fairfield in 1777 and again in 1778 (see records of the State of Connecticut, 408, 411 and 436).
Mrs. W. Himebaugh's Hungerford Genealogy, I find the following:
On Aug. 16, 1763, Gov. Wentworth granted a patent of a township named Hugerford...
From State papers of New Hampshire, VOl. 26, pp. 713-714 &c, regarding land grants of Samuel Hungerford. He was one of 70 grantees of 23,040 acres in Merrill, H..H., in Peacock, Fairfield, Smithfield, Linington, Hungerford, &c, &c. In Nov., 1766, he with many others petitioned the King for relief, it having been found that at least part of the lands did not belong to Vt., but to N.Y.
"Many of the grantees having put in all of their savings were about to be reduced to absolute poverty.
Samuel Hungerford and several others were chosen by the petitioners to look after their rights and to obtain a full confirmation to them of the lands on such terms as they could.
The grants provided that every grantee should plant and cultivate five acres for every fifty contained in the petition on penalty of forfeiture. That all white and other pine trees suitable for masting the Royal Navy, should be carefully preserved and not felled without special license.
That before any division of land be made that a tract in as near the center as possible be laid out and reserved for town lots of one acre to each grantee. In payment the grantee was to pay therefore, for the space of ten years from the date of the grant, the rent of one ear of Indian corn, only on Dec. 25, annually, it lawfully demanded and after the expiration of ten years, one shilling proclamation money for every hundred acres, the owners to be in lien of all other rents.
In Mr. J. Phelps Leach's Hungerford Genealogy, I find:
And 1763, he obtained of Gov. Benning Wentworth, grantes of three townships on the N.E. of Lake Champlain, chartered by the names of Fairfield, Smithfield, and Hungerford (Sheldon).
In 1783 he sent his son Isaiah to manage the prudent affairs of the townships, and Isaiah and Hubbard Barlow were chosen to lay out the divisions of land to each proprietor (see first book of records of Fairfield, Vt.)
Died at age 64 years 3 months.)

I thank you for your help. I do have Samuel with a second wife named Mary. but that is all I have on her.
Again, thank you for your help. I can use all the help I can and will be glad to give you anything I have.

Hello,

I noticed that you have memorials for Thomas and Nabby Starr Durant in Newton, Massachusetts. Do you have information on all of their children? I am doing research on a different Durant/Durrant family and I'm trying to find out if this Newton Durant family is related.
