Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since the late '70s, when a cousin showed me an old genealogy, "The Descend- ants of William Wood" in which my late grandmother was mentioned. I like this site and have made an effort to try to locate all the ancestor graves I can. I'm always available to take grave photos in the Twin City area.

In this memorial you state that only one child Richard survived to be an adult. Can you tell me where you found this information please.

Ken, I want to thank you for all your additions to members of the MANSFIELD and related families. My husband is a MANSFIELD descendant and a lot of info that I had found on-line and at to be contradictive and confusing. Your additions have helped me to begin sorting out & through conflicting info. Again a big THANK YOU!

Dear Ken Smith,

Thank you for sending me the information about Officer Besner. I have added what you sent me along with a little bit of my own research.

I wanted to let you know how much I personally appreciate Police Officers. My Father was a Police officer and my Grandfather was a Police Chief. I was a police and fire dispatcher for a few years.

Thank you for your service. If I may be of further assistance please don't hesitate in letting me know.

Kindest regards,

I added your bio for John Babcock (#82913716). He currently is linked to each parent which makes him show up twice on his own page. I'm not sure which is the best solution to this problem.

Hi again Ken, I have linked Mary with both parents as requested.
I'm sure your grandkids treasure their grandmother's quilts as much as mine do, but tanks for the compliment! Paula

John Ayers

In my research of John Ayers, 1582-1657, I found two Find a Grave Memorials. Yours, 3370 8326 and then 5329 4269, in different cemeteries. Maybe these are different John Ayers but their dates are the same. My interest is a daughter, Sarah Ayers Lamson. I've seen a lot of different articles, comments, etc. and now believe she was not his daughter. She was not mentioned in the Will that I read. I read that her brother, John and brother in law, Wm. Fellows (husband of Mary Ayers), petitioned the court in the interest of her children when she remarried. John Ayers did have a son John and daughter Mary., both mentioned in his Will. There is a cemetery photo on your memorial. Do you have any information?

Thanks, Gay Hockman

Lt Josiah Barber
Thank you for the information on Lt. Barber. There seems to be some confusion as to the year of his death. His headstone reads 1733, so I went with that. Until I can ascertain which is correct, I'm keeping it as is. As for the biography... Please understand, Lt. Barber is my ancestor. It is not a matter of "allowing" bios. As he is my ancestor, I would like the bio to be my own. And you'll forgive me if this is not a top priority in my life at the moment. Thank you for understanding.

RE: James Smith
Yes, way too many Smith and Jones'. I descendent from James Smith born 21 Dec, 1724 in Weston. His wife Lucy is buried in Weston, but as I said, his parents and brother William are buried in Rutland. As he would have been in his 63rd year in 1787, seems this would be him.
I also noticed a James Smith born 1721/2 (based on how they figured his birth date...actual year of birth or "in his 90th year") who died 1811 in the same cemetery with your Margaret Lockert.
I am not trying to step on any ones toes, do not think you are a findagrave nazi... spent the better part of 2 months dealing with a true F.A.G Nazi...
I am just trying to determine who James really is.
I have been researching your James and his family to determine if he and Margaret died while living with a child, which so often happens.
I am hoping there is a headstone. Maybe the vicinity of where James is buried will give us clues on whether he is you James or mine... family plot??
