Bio Photo My current project involves the siblings and children of Revolutionary War Veteren David Skinner (1742-1814) of Marlborough, CT, and Geneseo, NY.

Photos: If you use one of my photos please send me a thank you email. If you can figure out some way to get money for pictures of gravestones then you are a financial genius and deserve what you can get. Again, please send me a thank you note. If it's a lot of money please send me a 15% commission. :)

RE: Elizabeth (Hale) Thaxter

I guess we are all totally at a loss. I was going by what is on the gravestone as this is the only date that has been found at this time. I will keep searching, you never know what you can find in other sources.

Thanks for the heads up,
Mary Jane

RE: Rev Benjamin Ellery Hale
Hi Cousin, Am sorry I do not have a copy of the Richarson Memorial on my computer. You may be able to search for one. I have a hard copy. My aunt accidentally found a copy in the St. Petersburg, FL library thirty years ago and somehow sourced out a reprint copy for me. It is 900 plus pages long. I will probably never get all the information entered in my Ancestry tree.

Hi Tom.
We will certainly delete the 2nd memorial!

I'm stumped that we duplicated her in the first place! We were trying to be so diligent!

However, I think it was because we actually took the photos of that cemetery in Sept 2011, along with many others in Nebraska. It took us a few months to sort all of our photos, and create the big spreadsheets for the several cemeteries. I'm thinking that while we were working on the uploads, you had created Laura, and we didn't catch the duplication at all!

I'll get the photos uploaded to your memorial right away.

Please sing out if you spot any more like this.

RE: Jacob Thayer

Hello Tom,

Information on Jacob Thayer and his wives are from Patricia Thayer Muno, historian of the Thayer Families Association.

Patricia is the author of several books on Thayer family genealogy.

Rev Benjamin Ellery Hale
Regarding Rev Benjamin ELlery Hale, Find A Grave Memorial# 79704465.

THere is another daughter, Sarah Marie Hale, Find A Grave Memorial# 134710585.

In an short book, written by grandson, Frank William Thaxter titled "Recollection of Half a Century - The 'A' Class of Iowa Falls", 1909, THaxter provides a short biography of ten men who graduated high school at Iowa Falls, Iowa. Frank WIlliam THaxter was one, GEorge Ellery RIchardson (my great grandfather) was another. In the book he speaks to his family's travel from Massacusetts to first Batavia, Illinois.

The trip took place in 1853 and included: my gr. gr. grandparent's (Joshua Richardson and wife Sarah MArie Hale)family; the family of William Thaxter (and his new wife, Elizabeth Hale died in 1852); and the Benjamin Ellery Hale family.

Here, at least the Joshua Richardson and Sarah Marie Hale family started a "car manufacturing business" at Batavia. I can only assume this referred to rail cars. It was not sucessful. This family moved on to first Independance, Iowa and them by 1865, Iowa Falls, Iowa.

Thaxter reports his family moved on to Minnesota where census records show they were in 1860 and later to Iowa Falls, IA.

There was no further mention of the Benjamin ELlery Hale Family.

RE: Elijah NORTON - Greenwich NY
The stone states she is Elijah's wife, and it is located right next to his. I have posted the photo. Glad to help. I agree that anything posted to a memorial should be shared with the memorial manager.

RE: Hale family in Oak Woods

I did get a pic of George's famous stone and I added it but the public won't see it for a day or so. I think find a grave people will have to confirm it. After I posted it that's the message that I got.

I did get photos of the other graves, the Pope's, and I made memorial for them...

James Hale Pope, James Brown Pope, and Mary I Hale. You can check them out.

Glad to help!
