Stokell family
I stumbled upon your family history grave site searching for my Stokell ancestors. It looks like these Stokells intersect with your family lines. My Stokell line leads to Thomas Stokell (b. 1832) who emigrated to Germany where my grandmother, Mary Stokell was born, in 1871. She later emigrated to the U.S., where she met and married Johannes Brugge. They settled in Connecticut.

I'm also tracking down what may be a twig on my Stokell tree. It's a long shot, but an interesting one. There is a tribe of Stokells that reached and settled in Australia. One member is of particular interest, Hannah Stokell from Durham. In 1829 she was arrested and convicted of 'larceny upon a person' and sentenced to 7 years transport to Van Diemens Land (now Tasmania). I have her birth documented in Durham, but the trail beyond that has gone cold. If you ever come across her I'd very much appreciate the information. The same of course for any other Stokell connections.

Thanks for all your work.

Mathern?
I do not recall if I have written to you in the past or not but I notice your name on many of the Mathern memorials and am curious about your "connection". I am intrigued by the fact that four Matherns' married four Brechts' as the same thing happened with my mothers' siblings (four marrying four from another family). One of those Matherns' was my Great-Great grandmother. Mary Eva married Adam Brecht, and their daughter Marcella married my Great grandfather John Wesley Gettis (which must have been when the Methodist Gettis' became Roman Catholic). John Wesley and Marcella's third daughter as my grandmother Antonetta Rachel. My mother Ellen Mercedes Henle Olsen was her daughter. Mother is still alive at 91 1/2 in a Nursing home back in Tama, Iowa where I grew up. I have really caught the genealogy "bug" and enjoying making connections with "relatives" etc. and doing what I can to connect the dots and put the puzzle pieces together of our ancestors for our descendants. I would love to hear from you. Bob Olsen obob7852@sbcglobal.net

Thank you for creating this memorial for Thomas Lamar, Jr.

My records indicate that he had a Montgomery County will and I believe that he might be buried there. Leave him where he is for now and I will see what information is available as I have never looked for him since my line is through the son John. I have 9 named children for Thomas and Martha (Blanford) Lamar.

Today, I created a memorial for the mother of Thomas, who was the first wife of Thomas, Sr. Her name was Mary but no surname is mentioned in any records that I have located.

Mary Lamar: Memorial 167014197

Please link Thomas to Mary.

Hope that this helps,
Margaret

Donna, great... see you have mentioned Emmazette by setting up a memorial. May bring us more info for sure.

RE: Henry Newton Kennedy
Noticed he was married to Emmazette on his death certificate. Haven't found anything about her either; wonder where there would be more info? Must have married her between 1928 & 1939. Came across Henry Newton Kennedy's interesting bio in the History of Northwest Missouri, vol 3 from a search on his 2nd father-in law, Jacob J Lindsay who was spoke of there. Might mention Emmazette in Henry's Find A Grave bio. Maybe another researcher can help solve. Keep on sleuthing🙂

RE: Cole family & Gage/Kingsbury
Donna: So glad you responded so quickly! Now, for Henry Kingsbury what I have is b. England, 1618 and mrd. Susanna Gage and d. 1 Oct 1687. For James Cole, my records are b. 1 May 1625, mrd. Mary Tibbes. At least one of my sources is: Barnstaple Parish Register of Baptisms, Marriages andBurials, 1538 a.d. to 1812 a.d. She d. aft. 7 March 1659/1660. I have several other sources for James. I descend thru' Moses Cole, several generations down. My Cole/Kingsbury connection is Samuel (1677-1760) mrd. Mary K. (1679-1746), she was the gt. granddaughter of Henry Kingsbury. Does this match up with your information? Would you like my email address?

I would like to know if you are a descendant of Thomas Gage and Johanna Knight, as they are my 9th Great Grandparents. Also Benjamin Gage and Elizabeth Lombard my 8th Great Grandparents.
Would you turn over maintained of their memorials to me should they not be a descendant of yours?

Job Harrington 1701 - 1777
He is my 7th great grandfather. I know he served in French & Indian War but understand he also provided service in American Revolution - just do not know what kind of service - can anyone help? I want to submit his name to S.A.R. to honor him.

I descend through his daughter, Lydia who married Abraham Wilcox, who I am also attempting to get proof of Rev War service.

RE: Melinda Ayars Vanneman 150117633
You're welcome Donna! Capt. Hiram and Melinda are buried next to 2 women, Helen and Anna, I'm assuming they are their daughters. I created a memorial page for each. Would you like me to transfer the management? Also, I've sent date edits to the owners of the Captain and Melinda. It's a shame that their stones are tipped over. Their names were all buried, I had to dig them out, that's why they look dirty.

The following extract is posted on your findagrave entry for William Ring II. Would you be able to clarify as most records I find indicate that William Ring b 1565 was the Father of Andrew Ring whose wife was Deborah Hopkins. William's wife was Mary Durant and everything else seems to coincide with the information I am finding


>>>William Ring
Posted on June 4, 2010 by markeminer

William RING (1565 – After 1620 Before 1629) was Alex’s 11th Great Grandfather; one of 4,096 in this generation in the Shaw line.

William Ring was born in 1565 in Pettistree, Suffolk, England. His parents were Andrew RING and Debrah HOPKINS. He married Mary DURRANT 21 May 1601 in Ufford, Suffolk, England. William had been aboard the Speedwell, sister ship to the Mayflower, intending to voyage across the Atlantic in 1620. William was, however, among the passengers who could not fit aboard the Mayflower when the Speedwell was deemed unseaworthy. He returned to Leiden and died there sometime between 1620 and 1629.<<<

I noticed that your family tree includes the names of Dodge and Moore. Mine also, specifically from Boothbay and Edgecomb, Maine.
I have very little information on the Moore line which is more direct than the Dodge line.

Hi Donna
I saw that you were researching your mother's Newby line. I did some research and family links to that line in the Los Osos Valley memorial Park and though I would give you a heads up to add them to your tree. (See # 116677598 Belva Carol Newby)
