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: 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.

please provide a viable resource for changing the name since the marker does not reflect the name you would like in your edit

D. Middle Name:

Is on hold. I am currently working with the lady at the cemetery who has access to the records.

Do you have a source for your information on the family? This Charles D. Morse was gleaned from newspaper accounts and therefor won't be updated unless sourcing is included.

Additionally, there are 5 Charles Morse's listed in the cemetery… because some of the dates given are interment or re-interment dates… they possibly are not death dates at all.

Right now all I am sure of is that Charles Morse b. 1804 - d. 1885 was married to Luna b. 1806 - d. 1886. This matches genealogical research and headstone… the other 4 Charles's are being researched & looked into.

If you have information you'd like to add, please use the EDIT tab and click on the "Suggest any other correction or addition" link with your sourcing information…

Thank you for your patience while we sort all these Charles' out.

RE: Woodlawn
I dont get that at all either! seems silly that families pay money, and it is a public place. Sad. I will definitely try if I hit a warm day.

RE: Woodlawn
I will ask for the location it's no problem. I always try to ask requesters to call and try to get it because some offices don't like people coming in multiple times or with a whole list of names. Thanks!
