Abigail Kirkman Smith place of death
Hi, Joan--During the Wisconsin trip when I took the photos of Abigail's and Stephen's tombstones at Oxford, I also visited the State Historical Society in Madison and found her death notice in the Kilbourn (now Wisconsin Dells) newspaper. It said she died from "an internal cancer." She was still married to Stephen Miller at the time. This squares with what Frank Howard Smith had told my grandfather and father...that the family (Stephen and Abigail, Clifford and Frank) had moved to Kilbourn after losing their land in Marquette County.

RE: Susanna Brockway Petts
DAR Applications: National Number: 531253
National Number: 256273 both have Susannah Brockway Petts death date as April 16, 1837 and James's death date as April 6, 1837. I will need to send a copy of the photo's to Nationals to get this corrected.

RE: Susanna Petts
There are three photos on this page. The first one states she is the wife of James and that she died in 1837. The third one also says she is the wife of James and died in 1819. They can't be the same person.

Susan Petts
I believe that there were two Susannah Petts buried here and they have been combined into one page. See the two photo's on her page. The Susan Brockway who married James Petts died in April 1837. Her tombstone picture is on the page. Her husband James also died in 1837. The other Susan died in 1819. Would it be possible to make another page for that Susan?

Augustus J & Elsie S Heath-Plymouth

Been working on Family Search effort to document MA marriages.  Input is still in review process but records indicate following which may be of interest;

Augustus J Heath, age 33, married Elsie S Lewis, age 30, in Middleboro MA on 14 Feb 1925. Marriage was officiated by Arthur G Cummings, a Middleboro Minister.
Groom was living in Plymouth MA, occupation Carpenter, PoB Plymouth
Bride was living in Middleboro, occupation At Home, PoB Middleboro
His parents are listed as Michael F and Josephine (Boudrot) Heath
Her parents are listed as Frank A and Julia E (Sears) Lewis

Based on above and proximity of markers it appears that

Augustus is Find A Grave Memorial# 137429908
Elsie is Find A Grave Memorial# 136720857

Capt James Howard
Dear Joan,
I am somewhat confused. I have found Capt James Howard at Burial Hill and at Oak Grove Cemetery. Both burials have headstones and plot numbers. Can you determine where he and his wife are actually buried? One headstone can be read very clearly showing both the Captain and his wife Hannah Churchill. The other can't be read but there is an epitaph record stating it is for Captain James Howard at Burial Hill.
The other site is at

photo of grave?

Could you take photo of the grave of Elizabeth Churchill no. 44253297, and her sister Sarah Churchill no. 44254985. Also if you could connect to their parents William Churchill no. 125085237, their mother Sarah (Rider) Churchill. Both parents are buried behind them without at gravestone. This can be proven in hand written Massachusetts Vital Records 1620 - 1988. Or if know someone who could do it.

Thank You,

Reg Thompson

Joseph Rounsevel 1796-1858
I forgot to mention that Joseph 1796-1858 and his wife Betsey lived and raised their family in Coos County NH, which isn't close to Washington NH. Joseph 1796-1858 did die in Unity, NH, which is close to Washington. Although both her parents had passed in recent years, Betsey and her youngest daughter moved to Vermont after Joseph's death.
