Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for 40 years or more, started out with my mother and looking in the Seattle Libraries for information on my mother's family. My father knew mostly about his Morse family, where they came from and how they got to the USA. My mother on the other hand didn't know much except for the maiden names of her mother's people. Needless to say it has been a great journey and adventure in not only the history of both sides but a great pleasure in finding out where our people are from and where their final resting places are. I never would have found out or had been able to see where they are had it not of been for other's kindness and love for the same reasoning of being able to find a loved one lost so many years before. Credit is due to others who have helped in this journey, thanks to all of you who have added a picture or information, very much appreciated!

RE: French, George
You are very welcome Melody. And I will follow through on this. I don't know how long it takes but as I get more information I will pass it along for you.

Take care and have a wonderful day.

RE: Yerrina Frances
No, that was the only piece that was a bit unclear. I did not want to assume what you meant in that one slightly unclear area. I really appreciate when I find family history beyond dry facts! Thank You again! BTW it was Richard's next (2nd) wife Chloa that had my great grandmother Leeta. She passed at the young age of 45. She must have helped raise Yerrina's children.

Yerrina Frances "Rena" Garrett Rhoades
Dear Melody,
I have a question for you in regards to Yerrina Rhoades. You state that "On 5 Apr 1881 Yerrina gave birth to a set of twins Chloe and Irene and by the 5 Apr 1881 all three of them had died." The wording suggests that the births and deaths might not have been on the same exact day. Can you please clarify this for me?
Thank You so very much!

RE: Elizabeth Titscombe Morse
So true...unfortunately. Even today, it seems that maiden names can get lost. When my precious Mama passed I insisted that her maiden name be part of her tombstone. Thankfully, Dad didn't have a problem with that.

William & Diana Wilson
Hi Melody! William & Diana were my 3rd great-grandparents. I'm descended from their son, Roscoe Elisha Wilson (Eli's younger brother). I just recently located the death certificate for Roscoe and from this I learned that William Wilson was born "near Watertown, New York" which is in Jefferson County. I also learned that Diana's maiden name was Woodward and confirmed that she, too, was born in New York state. I've consulted over the years with a Wilson cousin (a descendant of Eli), and this is the first new info we've found on William and Diana in ages. Just thought I'd pass it along to you! I'll be happy to send you a copy of Roscoe's death certificate if you'd like it for your records. Just drop me a note and I'll email it to you.

Best wishes!

Minnie Warren
Lavinia was born in 1842 and Minnie 1849.

I was born and raised in Middleboro where the family lived. There are hundreds of sources that support the fact they were sisters.

Minnie Warren Bump
Sorry but I have to disagree with your request. Minnie was Lavinia's sister born 8 years apart. Your suggestion based on a photo is incorrect. If you have additional support for your claim that she was Tom Thump's daughter, please provide it.
