Bio and Links
I became fascinated with Vermillion County many years ago. My people settled there in 1839. They travel in groups and came from Caledonia County, VT. I have visited the area 3 times. I started borrowing the microfilm with the old newspaper Hoosier State to find information on my various families. It started in 1868. I then decided to abstract information on all the families to help others with their research. I have completed books through 1895 and plan on continuing through 1900. I am trying to add as many obits to entries on Find a Grave as I can. I have various lists for many of the cemeteries in the area. My people settled in Helt Township which includes many cemeteries that I don't have complete lists for. I also abstracted the Wills through 1927. I will check for you if you send me the name. I wish I lived closer, but I live just north of San Francisco.

I just copied a film on early New Jersey Cemetery readings. I am in the process of updating and adding to Find a Grave.

I have added the information to James' memorial that you requested. Sorry it took me a few days to get to it. I have been out of town assisting my 93 year old cousin who is having heart issues.

Thanks for taking the time to document the First United Methodist cemetery in Bridgeton NJ. I'll have to look to see if you have any more of my relatives! :)

Harriet W. Newkirk 1851-1862
You have done an awesome job and I really appreciated all your input of so many of my ancestors -with almost 400 years of South Jersey farmers that have intermarried all that time. Was wondering though if this Harriet wasn't my 3 GGP's daughter (Clement & Mariah Prickett Newkirk) I have their children as: Isaiah W. (mine)

Lorenzo (whose daughter Eliza m. her first cousin Wilbert Elwell Newkirk, their daughter Mildred Elizabeth (1/20/1899-8/31/1939) was close to my Grandma and Grandma lived w/ them in Burlington Co., NJ when she got her first job cause Eliza had died and Wilbert's parents Isaiah W. & Sarah Elizabeth elwell Newkirk and Sarah's sister Maggie Elwell Ayers had moved in w/ them to raise Mildred -from Grandma's stories & census of 1910).

Lemmon e-mail
Hi Carolyn,
I sent you a separate e-mail about the Lemmon family. I didn't include that my question was referring to Daniel Lemmon # 81653994.

Thanks so much!
