Thank you for posting her obituary - not everyone does. Sometimes, it seems that may be all there is for a person's history. Thanks again, Linda.

Catherine Stanley Sears
Hi Charlie,

I don't know why that year is off by 10 years. Her death information which is online on Ancestry shows that she was 57 when she died in 1897. That matches up with 1840. She was 21 when she married in 1861. That also matches up with 1840. I have other relatives where the date on the headstone is incorrect.

Also, although there are some census records and the marriage record in Newton in 1861 indicates her husband was from France, his death information indicates he was born in St. Ann(e), PQ, Canada.

He was also a veteran of the Mexican War and Civil War. I found his obit on genealogybank.

Hi,

Her true maiden name was Shanley not Stanley. Her death information corroborates this as well as the fact that she is on several family lists that I have inherited and I also have a copy of a letter written in the mid 1950's from one of her daughters to a "Shanley Corcoran" of Brockton, Mass who was her cousin also corroborates this. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NWMN-83X

I also found an abstract of 1841 & 1851 census of Derrynaseer, Leitrim, Ireland has her in it with her siblings and parents. This is available on FamilySearch - 1851 mentions her too. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QV9D-QCJF
In 1851, she is 13 and living in America.

Her marriage to Joseph - in West Needham Ma (today Wellesley) - listed at Hattie (or Katie) Stanley. 21 years old. She made up her parents' names and also said she was born in Marlboro - where her uncle (my great great grandfather lived there). Her sisters and brother were after her not to marry outside the Catholic Church at that time so she had incentives to lie. This is on ancestry.com. http://interactive.ancestry.com/2495/40143_270483__0263-00020/13768918?backurl=http://person.ancestry.com/tree/16973311/person/444475956/facts/citation/155115077552/edit/record I can email you some of this if you want.

RE: Clorinda Thomas et al.
Hi Charlie,

All of these Thomases are distant cousins whom I found while researching my book.

Thanks for your offer, but I do not wish to do any more than to suggest edits which may help to clarify relationships and add information which could be helpful to those who are researching one line or another and are looking to make a link.

Best wishes,

Hollis

I have transferred the Churchills to you.
I am glad they are going to get the much

I wish you the best of luck with your article

Samuel, Sarah, & Elizabeth Churchill
Charlie:
Thank you for your very informative information
on the Churchills.
Would you like me to transfer to you Samuel,
Sarah, and Elizabeth?
To be honest I did not feel 100 percent
certain about the Samuel that I had found
in the "Churchill Family of America" book,
and knew there was something not right about
my memorials because he was buried next to
a Sarah and Elizabeth, I guess I did not spend
enough time researching.
I will be happy to pass these memorials on to
you and will also try to get better gravestone
photos.
Once again thank you Charlie.
Take Care,
Sandy

RE: Samuel Churchill #94727192
Thank you Charlie. It can be frustrating doing
family research, especially on such a large
family as the Churchills.
I will take every consideration to correct the
memorials, I am very open to all edits sent
to me. I will not be able to devote time to
correcting the memorials until next week.
We do have an excellent History & Genealogy
dept. at the public library here in Plymouth,
I will take a look to see if information can
be found. As far as Samuel Churchill and
Elizabeth (Churchill) are concerned,
I am a member of Friends of Burial Hill, there
was GPR done on the cemetery. There are many
graves with no headstones. Samuel and Elizabeth
(Churchill) may be buried there, but there is
no evidence of it. I think we can work together
and get the information straightened out on
my memorials.
Thank you,
Sandy

RE: Samuel Churchill #94727192
Charlie:
First of all, Samuel's wives were not the
subject of your edit. You wanted me to
change the birth date on the memorial. Now
you have changed to whole subject of your
edit.
I have found from "Burial Hill in the 1990's:
Plot B516, Sarah Churchill, d. 1791
Plot B517 Samuel Churchill, d. 1810
Plot 518 Elizabeth Churchill, d. 1839.
I will have to research this from the
beginning. Changes will be made accordingly.
My reference to his parents was due to the
fact that he was actually born on July 10,
1754, not Jan. 9, 1753 as you had stated,
the Samuel you referred to as being born
Jan. 9, 1753 died shortly thereafter.
As I previously said, this memorial will
be researched from the beginning.
Sandy

Samuel Churchill #94727192
Hi Charlie:
You sent me an edit on Samuel Churchill,
Burial Hill, Plymouth, MA. You would like
me to change the date of birth to Jan. 9,
1753. This would not be correct as far as
my research goes. Vital records has his
date of birth as July 10, 1754. I have
added the vital record information to his
memorial.
The only Samuel Churchill that I found in
the Plymouth vital records born Jan. 9, 1753
died Jan. 31, 1753, son of Barnabas Churchill
Jr. and his wife Lydia. They are not the
parents of my memorial. If you have other
information to back up your edit please let
me know.
Sandy

That was a typo. He was buried Feb 26, 1902. Here's the source for the burial records: http://archstl.org/app/cemeteries/burial_search

RE: Henry Meyer Find A Grave Memorial# 47753397
Not documented at all. It is estimated based upon the cemetery record of his age. I put it in because so he would show up on searches when people are searching on Find A Grave. Cemetery records indicate he was buried Feb. 26, 1907 at age 47. He is buried in a single grave in an area where people were buried one after another. Most are unmarked, as is his. If you think he may be a relative, I'm happy to transfer.

Re: Ernest Clark Overton
Hi Charlie,

Do you know if there's an Ernest C. Overton, or his wife, Evangeline M. (Smith) Overton intered in Evergreen Cemetery? Ernest was born at Henderson, Jefferson Co., N. Y., on 17 Aug 1894, and from 2nd hand information I received, died on 17 Oct 1987, in Pinellas Co., Florida. Too far for me to travel to Evergreen for a look-see!

Any help greatly apprecieated.

profile, etc.
Thanx, you will receive credit.

Another subject. Just after I hit the send button on my last, I surfed down your communications and noticed that you must have had a run in with ditdit. About three years ago I had a less than cordial exchange with (him/her/it) (that person). Somehow "IT" managed to post memorials and photos of my wife's parents in Massachusetts before I did. After many exchanges which became more and more adversarial, instead of either correcting the errors or transferring the management to me, he/she/it just erased all mention of the memorials including the links others had made. One of my cousins notified the Find A Grave management and I went ahead and posted new memorials with our photos. All is well and I should be over it.... apparently I'm not. Jerry

Hi Charlie:

I happened on a post you made sometime back on Bonnie Kehoe-Gove's page and was interested enough in the content to come to this page.

I really like your attitude and intend to plagerize (sp?)some of your monologue. Please consider it a compliment instead of an outright theft.
