Hamlin-Sawyer-Grant-Murray families Tersea, You mentioned that you recently "inherited" several binders full of family research from your grandmother and aunt. Ironically, I did also! Although, in most cases, the information is what I call genealogy gold, in some instances, the information leads to many more unanswered questions, and in my case...a brick wall.
In my information I inherited, there is a bio written for an Orlando Sawyer, my great, great grandfather, born Knox, Waldo, Maine to Betsey Ann (Murray) and Thomas Sawyer. The bio states that Thomas Sawyer (1806-1884, son of John Sawyer) was of old Hannibal Hamlin stock and that Betsey (1810-1893) was in the maternal line of the Grant family, prominent in Maine History.
I cannot make a connection from my Sawyer ancestors to either the Hamlin or Grant families. I am considering hiring a professional researcher when I saw your post and am wondering if your inherited info might mention the Sawyer family. They are all buried in the Knox Ridge Cemetery, Knox, Maine. If you have any info I would be most appreciative.
Isaiah Hamblin Photo The "new" picture I have for Isaiah Hamblin may not be for this Isaiah, but perhaps for his grandson, Edwin Hamblin's son, Isaiah. I am trying to verify this information if I can and will let you know. However, I am pretty certain the picture you have here is of John Albiston. If you would like the information I have on this, I will be more than happy to email it to you. Let me know. Thank you!
Isaiah Hamblin Hi, Ann! You have posted a picture on Isaiah Hamblin's memorial (#42030)and it doesn't belong to him. Someone somewhere along the line must have gotten something mixed up, somehow! It's an easy thing to do, but now I am trying to notify everyone I can to make this correction before it gets too far spread. This picture actually belongs to John Albiston, memorial #44044054. Consequently, both of these men are my GGG-Grandfather's. I recently "inherited" several binders full of family research that my grandmother and aunt had been working extensively on for years. I have original photos for both that I will be posting. Could you please remove your picture and let me know when that is done? You can use the picture that I post or I can email you a copy if you would like. I also have a picture of Isaiah with his father, Barnabus! Thank you SO MUCH! BTW, how are you related? Isaiah's son, Edwin, is my GG-Grandfather.
Baby Draper Anne: I was doing research on the Draper family line and in the Sandy city cemetery in plot C-1-58-5 I found an infant. I then went to the state of Utah--Death certificate on the internet--the record shows that the baby was a still born baby that was born and died on the same date (14 June 1929 the child was the daughter of Levi J. Draper of Utah and Fern Cowdell of Utah. The complication that caused the death was a knot in the cord. Do wish that you would update this record in respect for the baby and her parents.
RE: can't find Hi Ann, I read the newspaper article thats posted on her memorial page, such a tragic story! We walked around for 2 1/2 hours but theres 3500 people in that cemetery - it was quite an overwhelming task. We live close so I'm sure we'll try again and I'll keep you posted.
