RE: Hobby/Slauson @ Middle Patent Hi Margot ..... my link to William Hobby and Josephine Slauson is via Josephine as I'm a direct Slawson/Slauson descendant. We both descend from George Slawson of Stamford, CT.
William Finch Mead I am looking for information on WFM. My great grandfather was Edwin R Mead. The was born in New Orleans, la. It appears WFM was in NOLA around 1860 as a school teacher and may have been married twice. It appears my great grandfather's mother was Mary C Wood Mead.
Can anyone share info on how or why WFM was in NOLA?
Thank you for the picture Thank you so much for the pictures of Simon and Minnie Jacobson from Hebrew Friendship cemetary. I know absolutely nothing about my mother's family, she was very secretive. I have found out a lot thru help from folks like you. Thanks again.
RE: Terance McCart's Grave Margot, you certainly are on the case to unravel the mystery. All of Terance's son James S. McCart (my g-g grandfather)and family were buried at the Holy Cross Cemetery and moved to Woodlawn. As you pointed out, I have not been able to locate Terance there.
The oldest son of Terance named John had his funeral at St. Pius according to the 1894 obit but don't know where he and his family are buried.
Next daughter Alice married Henry Lee Kendall and her funeral was at St. John's according to the 1892 obit but I don't know where she and her family is buried. She was taking care of her mother "Ann" McCart who died in 1885 so I suspect that at least Terence's widow was buried with the Kendalls. Alice Kendall's daughter Susan Clark ran a boarding house in the late 1800s and seems to be taking care of other family members including cousins.
Next son George McCart (funeral at St. Vincent's in 1902) and family were buried at what is now New Cathedral Cemetery but I have not located their graves there yet.
I will send you a list of genealogical data of what I have about the descendants of Terence McCart by email.
Thanks for digging away at this for me. This has been so difficult to figure out. - Bill
