Bio and Links
Bio Photo My direct ancestral line in America begins with the Robinsons of Cambridge, MA, with William Robinson (1640-93) and Elizabeth Cutter (1645-92) being one of the first 56 members of Cambridge Village, MA and also the lineal family of Captain Richard Olmsted (1612-87), an original proprietor of Hartford, CT.


If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not,
Or don't you really know?

Some strange discoveries are made
In climbing family trees,
And some of them, you know, do not
Particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps,
You wouldn't care to know.

But here's another question, which
Requires a different viewó If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?

Stephen Rice # 91564039 & Thankful Rice # 91564172
Thanks so much for posting the memorials for these two folks. I noticed a slight error, their death dates have been reversed. Stephen's death date is actually Thankful's death date and Thankful's death date is actually Stephen's death date, according to the Bennington Vermont death records. I am sending you corrections via the findagrave edit feature. Just wanted to let you know the purpose of the edit in case you had any questions.
Thanks again & regards,

Dear Mr. Robinson
The picture of Holy Rosary Church is in Taft,LA
and has nothing to do with Msgr. Woods who lived on Dumaine (3400)Street. His parish church is located on Esplanade Avenue near Bayou St. John and City Park.
I wish you could get a picture of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary in New Orleans, it is a beautiful church.
Thanks for all you do.

RE: Skeel/Skeels/Skeele
Re: 78666796 & 10386358

Hi Again Douglas - Thank you for your kind responses.

Yes, you are obviously correct, that there are many different spellings for the same name through the ages - and all of them can be considered correct. I apologize for my assertion that one spelling was right and the other was wrong. In fact, I have Olmsted ancestors myself. They mostly spelled it without the "a." BTW, I also have Robinson ancestors. It's a small world.

However, I think we should still try to eliminate one memorial for the individual who now has 2 of them - John Skell/John Skeel - the memorial #'s at the top of my message. Please work with John Whalen to merge your memorials so there will be only one for John.
Thanks a lot! - Janet

Hello - I believe the correct spelling of the last name of this person is Skell. It was the spelling on the original gravestone. The spelling you use is from the replacement stone and I believe it is incorrect.
The correct spelling of the name of this person and of his relative with a similar name also buried in this same cemetery and whose name is on both the original and replacement gravestones, is Skell.
Please see if you can transfer the bios and photos to the original Find A Grave memorials for these people which were created before yours were.
It's very confusing to have all 4 of these Find A Grave memorials for only 2 individuals.
Thank you. - Janet

Hi: The Hon. John Munro U.E.L. (1728-1800) is on Ontario Hydro's list of Lost Villages Cemeteries as being buried in the Trinity Anglican Cemetery, Riverside, Williamsburg Twp, not in the Cornwall Trinity Anglican Cemetery. Two different cemeteries. I have people buried in both cemeteries, so have been studying them.

You have shared some incorrect information about my great great grandfather and his family. Additional information supplied by: Douglas Robinson

She was born Elizabeth Birchard 1770 in Fairfield, CT and in 1788 in Highgate, VT she married Simeon Hungerford. Simeon Hungerford b. 14 May 1767 in Fairfield, CT to Samuel Hungerford (1725-89) and Mary Graves (1727-1793).
this information is incorrect.

The correct information is as follows:
Based on the book Additions and Corrections for Thomas Hungerford of Hartford and New London, Conn. and His Descendants in America By F Phelps Leach. This was published in East Highgate, Vermont 1932.
Simeon is the son of Daniel Hungerford (B 09 Sep 1738) and Olive Warner (1740) of E. Haddam, Middlesex, Connecticut and Daniel is the son of
Jonathan Hungerford (1714- 1771.) and Martha Welles (1717-1740)

Thank you for your time.
Have a great evening.

Hello - I just discovered that someone created another memorial for this person and his father, spelling the name a little differently - Skell instead of Skeels. I've notified that person of the fact that there are duplicate memorials and asked him to work with you to make it just one each.
Yours were created first, so he should delete his. But you might want to consider the alternate spelling of the last names in the bios since the spelling he has may be closer to what was on the original headstone.
Thank you. - Janet

Robinson Family Documents
The Robinson Family Heritage document that my father compiled is over 300 pages and documents the Robinson family genealogy from early 1600 through 1995. It includes all public and family documents my father was able to locate at the time.

Robinson Family heritage
Hi my name is Benjamin West Robinson from Coral Springs Florida. I am a descendant of Dr. Benjamin West Robinson from Fayetteville. In fact I have his original portrait and Benjamin Robinson's portrait as well in my home office. My father (John Huske Robinson Jr.) spent several years researching and documenting the Robinson family heritage before his death in 1997. He spent a lot of time in Fayetteville while doing his research and acquired some family items from the 19th century. Anyway, should you have an interest in this stuff I would be happy to share with you the documents I have etc.
Best Regards,
Benjamin Robinson
