Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find myself the only one in my family interested in our history...I have been doing the research for 15 years now and I love the hunt for the information and I am trying to get as much accurate info as possible. I like to have a personal photo and burial/headstone photo of each person if possible. I am in RI a native of MA so quite often I do most of my research there.

Alton O Pickering

As you know there are two memorials for Alton O Pickering.

Memorial Find A Grave# 30906297 for Alton O Pickering had the best photos and information. So I made the family links to that memorial.

Then I tried to delete Alton O Pickering Find A Grave# 30747986 and because I did not create the memorial Find A Grave will not allow me to delete it. Would you please delete Find A Grave# 30747986 ? Thank you so much.

I will be adding more information to the memorial, like place of birth, etc. Is that OK?

Alton O Pickering

Thank you for all the GREAT photos. The Pickering Burial Ground is just a short distance from the farm that my grandfather owned, and was later owned by Alton O Pickering. The farm is on Pickering Hill.

And thank you for transferring Uncle Alton's memorial to me. There are two memorials for Alton O Pickering in findagrave. I will be deleting one of them..

Happy New Year. And isn't findagrave the best!!

Evening Kathy:

Going out of business? Will take care of your 2 transfers. Actually, I may transfer them to someone else if that is OK. I had loaded the majority of memorials from a transcript but a few months ago transferred almost all as I am slowing down a bit. Local person I work with.

Hi Kathryn
I noticed you had added a memorial quite some time ago for Israel and probably the rest of those mentioned on the headstone to St Marys cemetery in North Attleboro. They have recently added a link on the cemetery page of St Mary's to the old St Marys, which has its own database. i had added the Precourts there but will delete if you plan on moving your entries to that database.

Pickering Burial Ground
Kathryn, I'm so sorry to make so much work for you! I would happily take them if you are sure. My number is 47263728. I'd be happy to ask for them each individually through the edit function if you'd like or if that makes it any easier for you.

Thanks so much for all your efforts!

Pickering Burial Ground
Thank you so, so much for all your hard work on Pickering Burial Ground. It was amazing to find all that today. I'm terribly greatful. Are you related to any of them? I sent you about a bizillion edits today, I'm so sorry to send so many but I had a lot of time to work on ancestry and find a grave and was able to sort out a lot of who is related to who thanks to all your wonderful photos.

Thanks again so much! Please don't hate me for all the messages!

A long lost Pickering cousin,

Israel Precourt
I am a direct descendant of Israel Precourt. Albini Precourt of North Attleboro was my paternal grandfather. I am the lone male of my line. I got curious about the Vanasse/Precourt connection and have found a few folks on-line. How are you connected? Many of my people (including my father William Precourt Sr.) are in St. Mary's.

Omer Precourt (1879-1942)
Here is a dilemma for you that I have uncovered in reviewing the birth and marriage registers. Although Omer Precourt (findagrave # 30169016) used Fall River as his birthplace on his marriage and 20 July as his birthdate on his WWI draft registration, his actual birth is registered as Omer Precourst on 20 June 1879 in Westport, Massachusetts.[page 156 line 30] His twin, Eva, is also recorded on this register.[p156 ln 31] The parents whose names were listed as Arthur and Emma (Heon) were residents of Westport.

Now the dilemma, Westport was originally part of Dartmouth and was incorporated in 1878 and the boundary between Westport and Fall River was not actually delineated until 1894, so depending upon where they lived, the Precourts may have been in what is now Fall River, hence Omer's use of Fall River as his birthplace may be an accurate description. Being technically inclined, my take on this is that if the birth was registered as of the town of Westport at the time of birth, his birthplace should be listed as Westport, but I will leave that up to you to decide.

You asked for records on the Precourts. I have been looking at these towns for the Precourt family prior to their time in North Attleboro and do have many of the children's U.S. birth registrations, marriage registrations, WWI draft registrations, and census records Would any of these records be of help to you?
