Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy and am attempting to locate and link all of our family members and any others that I come across on Also tryng to add photos, vital records, census records and any other family photos that someone might enjoy.

I would like to thank all the people that have put my family on findagrave and have been kind enough to transfer my family memorials to me for management. Corrections are welcomed. Please use the edit tab on the memorial for suggestions.

If you copy pictures, markers or obituaries, etc. from my memorials, it is much appreciated and expected to include my memorial and findagrave name and number as the source.

"The Chosen"

We are the chosen. In each family there is one (or more) who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes (hopefully) have at least one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves.

Barbara - thanks for the temporary removal. Hope we can find out who Phebe's parents really were, be they Nathan/Lydia or other. A grandson of Nathan/Lydia (Danforth) had a daughter, Phebe, born in Stockbridge, but she was born in around 1811, I think (I'd have to check my records), but that's not anywhere near close to your Phebe's age. I've PLOWED through HUNDREDS of pages of Town records, and have been ALL OVER the Vermont Birth records, but still haven't found her. That doesn't mean she's not N/L daughter. We'll keep plugging away, I would LOVE to find another family member! (and therefore a current relative!) Bear with me. I've always got it in mind. (and I'm pretty good at finding these 'Strays.' Have another family member searching, too. BTW, many claims on who Nathan's parents are, but NEVER ANY VALID PROOF. Just word of mouth in other books like the one you cited.... and they're SO often wrong.... ONWARD, and thanks! Warmly, Victoria

Phebe Abbott Cleveland
Barbara, hello.

I have every record I could accumulate regarding the children of Nathan Abbott and Lydia Hatch. However, there is no documentation that I have found that connects a child by the name of Phebe.

They were married 10 October 1765 in Sturbridge, Massachusetts and youngest daughter, Thankful Abbott Parish, was born on 15 February, 1769 in Sturbridge, Windsor, Massachusetts, so it is pretty unlikely that another child was born within that year, (although possible.) HOWEVER - The family did not migrate to Stockbridge until 1787.

Unless you have some other documentation (besides any written genealogy - i.e. an actual birth or death record that cites her parentage), I believe this is not correct. I've done some very extensive research on this family, and I don't think your information is correct, and I would appreciate you removing her from this family line, which is my own. I find no records that show her as their daughter.

Warm regards.

RE: Jacob and Agnes Ringler
I apologize for leaving wrong impression, It was NOT the use of photo I questioned; it did not belong with that individual. I do have it posted with the correct individual d. 1896.

RE: alfred Silva
Hi Barbara,
Alfred Silva was born Anebel Angelo, son of Manuel Joseph Angelo (nee Machado). Manuel came to America as a Machado, but due to some confusion with the mail in Clarksburg, CA he changed his name to Angelo according to my Dad. My Dad, Alfred (nee Anebel Angelo) left home very early in life and changed his name to Alfred Silva. He got upset with me when I was trying to "dig" into his background. I have two spellings for his name; one as Anibel, and the other as Anebel. Can you verify the correct spelling? Also, thanks for the info on Mary Leal Angelo. I have had many problems trying to put her family together.

Dora Z Trill photo request
Your photo request for Dora Z (Trill) Douglass in East Nelson Township cemetery can be fulfilled by searching for the name under Dora Z Douglass. There is what amounts to a duplicate memorial with a photo. The inscriptions are on a base that was fully buried until I dug it up last year.
George N Douglass/Douglas is a full brother to my 2nd great grandmother, Minnie Maude (Douglass/Douglas) Marvin. Their Douglass parents are also in East Nelson cemetery.
Some older death records will say DeCou cemetery, as this cemetery sits on the old property of George DeCou, and the white bronze monument of the DeCou family is a readily identifiable feature. Nelson Township was not even aware of this alternate name.
Dora was married under the name Celma. The parents are David B and Margery (Fleetwood) Trill. She is shown as a 20 year old on her wedding day 3 July 1897. The 1880 census of the David Trill family does show an Isadore Z Trill of the right age. I believe the marriage record should have shown her name as Zelma. I conclude her given name is Isadore Zelma Trill.
Several members of the Douglass family began dropping the second S of their name during this period.
Your contributions are very helpful to the related families!
Thank You, Timothy Douglas Marvin

Manuel & Sebastian Anaya pics
Monday I went to San Patricio Cemetery. My wife and I searched the cemetery but could not find the graves of Manuel & Sebastian Anaya. Unfortunately, there are many, many graves that are unmarked or have wooden crosses with no names. Leave the request up because I am sure I will return there. There are many graves not recorded in findagrave. Melvin Sands, East Bernard, Texas.
