RE: Joel Grow Stimson
You are right that this is confusing indeed. My sources are the headstone inscriptions and census records. The headstone inscription is difficult to read in the photo (bad day) but it clearly lists Betsey Perry Stimson as Joel's wife. I cannot locate a marriage record for them. I found two Vermont marriage records for Joel G. Stimson:
Juliette Walker - married in Stafford VT 29 Aug 1838
Cynthia R. Stone - married in Waterbury VT 8 Aug 1848

So I guess the answer to your question is that I don't know. I'll keep poking around on this one.

I agree completely. The broken old stone is (was?) laying on the lot marked as owned by Thompson Pierce. This is significant as Pierce married Samuel's daughter, Harriet. There are no other known burials on the lot although I wonder if his wife Elizabeth might be. That is all the information I have. Where did you find Samuel's death date and do you know Elizabeth's?

Hi Nancy:
My grandmother Elfa Rose Babcock, Foster, Monks
had a cousin Rosetta Violet Babcock married many times. Her oldest daughter Ada Leona Mattison's 3rd
husband was Harry M. Bissell. After her death Harry married Sigrid Anderson and they had two children.
One died in 1924 a daughter and is buried Lakeside Cemetery in Muskegon, MI next to Rosetta Violet Babcock McCoy.
A Cathy Colon is the granddaughter or great granddaughter of Rosetta and finally found the resting place in Lakeside cemetery and just asked me wasn't their a Bissell in the family? Yes, Rosetta's ex son-in-law was Harry M. Bissell.

You can read about Rosetta Violet McCoy in Find A Grave buried in Lakeside Cemetery. Do you have any
pictures you can scan onto their memorial sites in Find A

Susan Walker (Morse) Lind
Susan died at sea on 5 December 1885 near Havana en route to her home in Puerto Rico. Reference: New York Times, page 1, 8 December 1885.

"Havana, Dec 7 - Miss Susan Morse, a daughter of Samuel F B Morse, inventor of th4e telegraph, while enroute this place on the Spanish mail steamer, disappeared shortly before arrival of the vessel. It is supposed she threw herself into the sea in a temporary fit of mental aberration.

Her obituary is in the New York Times 9 December 1885 page 8.
