Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I am Cindy Elschide. I began doing genealogy in 2000. Since then I have expanded my family tree in one place back to 1080 and in others several generations also. I started out with just a few names and now my house is over run with (about 30) 3 inch binders and tubs of papers, folders and pictures etc. I always say I get more fun going to a cemetery and finding an ancester's grave than most people do going to an amusement park and riding the roller coaster.
My husband & I have been known to center a vacation around cemeteries, libraries and courthouses. With visits with family and a little bit of site seeing thrown in.
My father's line includes Brooks & Haybron(southern Ohio); Gandee, Harper, Shafer or Shaver, Tanner, Hinzman, Raines and more (West Virginia); the famous Indian Scout Jesse Hughes who has many things written about his life; and I am cousins with Presidents Washington and Herbert Hoover.
My Mother's line includes Collard (originally from Belgium), Curwick, Kerouac (Jack Kerouac, the author and including being related to Madonna and Celine Dion); Newells' from Cambridgeshire England and Snows from East Riding Yorkshire England; Brownfields, Sallee's & Cox from Ohio, and other places of ancestors are Netherlands, France, Italy and more.
My husband's line includes Peter Kappis/Cavis a Germany Mercenary in the Revolutionary War; Peter's son who was the Engineer for the John Bull Train which currently sits in the Smithsonian in Washington DC; Ehlschides from Germany; His grandmother Helen Robertson was born in Scotland (her grandfather died while building the Firth of Forth Bridge) and his grandfather (Gerald McCann)was descended from Irish (Boyle and Corbett)who fled the potato famine to come to Canada.
I had visited the Find a Grave site before but just recently realised that I should have been adding to it--a long time ago! I find it has brought great enjoyment to me to share the photos I take with everyone on the web in hopes that they help others.
Cindy

I don't have a copy of the trial, you might be able to get one from the State Libary in Hartford. I do have bits and pieces from it that you can find on the internet, now. Mine were handed down a few generations. She was my 11 th great grandmother. As I stated on her memorial a lot of the information that is out there contradicts itself so you have to draw your own conclusions on some of it. Wish I did have a copy.

RE: Harvey Page
Sorry it took me this long to answer you. Uncle Harvey Page is in front of the cemetery. I think he does have a head stone. You know his wife died a few years back. Did you ever find out where Christopher is buried at? Could you send me copies of the pics you have of my great grandparents. Thank you so much for helping finding out information about the Newell side of the family. Did you ever meet my grandparents? I know that my dad telling me about going to Indiana to see family.

Haybron Family
Hi Cindy - I saw your post and noticed you said your Father's line is Haybron. I am the grandaughter of Lucille Margaret Haybron Smith, her father - Ira Sylvester Haybron, her Great-Grandfather - William Jackson Haybron, her GG-Grandfather - Richard Hayburn, and her GGG-Grandfather - William Haybourn. I'm wondering if your Father is related to any of these Haybrons.

Thanks for any additional information you may have.

RE: Samuel Brooks #42689046
Hello Cindy,
Yes Samuel Brooks is my 3rd Great Grandfather. I've input a Joseph Brooks as his dad (which is probably wrong) from a 1830 Census: Athens County, Ohio, United States ~ CENSUS - BROOKS, Samuel MALES: Under 5 (1), 5-9 (2), 30-40 (1) FEMALES: Under 5 (1), & 20-29 (1) TOTAL 6 *Living next door is Joseph Brooks & wife 50-60 yrs. Could be his dad & mom*.
What difficult is that there's another Samuel Brooks in Athens County but in Athens Township. Same age with same number of kids. I've input both Census's on my tree.
Are you related to Samuel? If so I could add you as a guest on my tree if you want.
Let me know,
Joy Kettell Clarridge
