I have been researching my families tree since 1978. I have three children, and 6 grand children, one deceased, and two great-grand children, I have added many relatives, and I am grateful for this site.
RE: Jane (Wray) Nutter Both i guess! I didnt even know my grandmothers last name was Wray until yesterday in here. I dont know anything about my family on that side. Or my grandfathers side (Golden) I have some pictures and i have no clue who they are. My aunt has been no help.
Albert Nutter memorials There is another memorial # 98573034 Eureka Center, Polk co. WI. Pleasant Hill Cemetery WITH a grave marker photo, same name, same dates. ?? Is he buried in 2 different places, or was there an error on the obit? or? Thanks
Jacob Collins 1773-1837 Hi - I am researching Jacob Collins, who settled his brother George's estate in Warren County, OH between 1822 and 1827 (lots of debts, lots of work). It appears there was a second George Collins who died with a will in 1830. They lived in different pieces of land (listed in the Warren County taxes in the late 1820s). So it seems there was more than one George, and perhaps more than one Jacob.
I am curious about what statements are made in the 1880s journal/diary you mentioned at Jacob's memorial site. Jacob died in 1837 with a will, naming his children, so it's clear that he did have two wives, and Amos was by the 2nd wife Clarinda and apparently got cut out of the money.
But Jacob's daughter Hannah had married Edmund Collins, from New Hampshire. I wonder if he might have been her cousin. I'm confused about when exactly Jacob was in Virginia. The Jacob I'm working on (Hannah's father) cannot have been anyplace but Ohio between 1822 and 1827, because he was settling his brother's estate.
Rev. John Collins seems to be the father of the George who died in 1830 with a will. But I think he cannot be the father of Hannah's dad, Jacob, because that guy had a brother named George who died intestate five years or so earlier than 1830. (I'm not clear when Jacob's sickly brother George died - I think Jacob was handling his brother's affairs long before his death because he was so ill).
Hannah's husband Edmund Collins (perhaps her own cousin) was the son of Benjamin Collins Jr. (1771-1818) from NH. I am eager to know definite proof that the Jacob who was Hannah's father actually came from New Jersey. If he didn't, I'm guessing he came from New Hampshire, although I have not worked out who his father could be (IO'm working on that).
So, if it wouldn't be too much trouble, I would be very grateful if you could transcribe the journal, or check the information there so it's clear nobody is making any assumptions about a person named Jacob Collins. Thank you so much for your help - I know I'm asking a lot. Thanks.
RE: Elizabeth (Boyle) Oliver-Page Elizabeth is my husband's great grandmother in his mother's line. I am working on updating findagrave info on all of this line and would love to have you transfer management to me as it would make it easier to make changes when it is necessary.
I am curious about your connection - are you related or is this a genealogy/history interest on your part?
My daughter got me started with findagrave when she was living in France for a year - she wasn't allowed to work while there so she looked up info for findagrave requesters and while in a Paris cemetery one day she met a man who was able to introduce her husband to the widow of the very man he was doing research on - serendipity in the cemetery!
