Eli Lee I am doing research on Eli Lee. I see you have dates for his birth and death April 4, 1824 and Jan. 1, 1891. I was wondering if you could give me your source. I am sure he was my husband's great-great grandfather. Eli was married to Hannah Hinckley and had 6 children, they are all from Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. I have written to the National Archives for his Civil War records but they found nothing. My husband's grandmother tell stories that relate to her grandmother saying Eli served in the Civil War. His wife Hannah Hinckley must of died soon after her last child as so far, I find nothing on her except that in her father's history - Hannah married Eli Lee and died young. Eli and Hannah's children were Augusta Ann b. 3-19-1849 and married John Wall; Martha Clarene b. 3-0-1852 married Francis James Cottrell; Elias Elmer born January 25, 1855 and died December 1, 1935; Eurella Jane born May 7, 1856 and died April 22, 1936 married Isaac Myers (This is my husband's line); Emilius Oscar b. April 2, 1859 and died August 26, 1951. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Elaine
RE: grave info Hi Dave, I obtained her death information from her obituary, Steubenville Daily Herald, Thurs Dec 22, 1887 Delilah Higgins Revenaugh - WARRENTON, Frv 21. - Grandmother Higgins, a highly respected and Christian lady, died suddenly at her home Sunday about 12 o'clock, and was buried Monday at three o'clock at Warrenton cemetery, Rev. Meek officiating.
RE: grave info Absolutely... I have a copy of her obituary, do you descend from her also? If so, we 're cousins. She is my 4th GG. Please email me at email@example.com if you would like a copy of her obituary. I descend from her son, John Dallas Higgins. I have been successful in finding his burial location as well as his daughter's, in spite of them both being unmarked, except for a little white peg in the ground with a number on it. I get excited talking about my Higgins line. Can't wait to find out which line you are from. Myra
Patents of Mae Elizabeth Booth Dear David, I am researching the family of the Weavers and Mae Elizabeth Booth married Merritt Burdett Weaver in 1960. I don't have her married to your line. I see on the free website familysearch.org that she has two children by the last name of Hooker which didn't live a year. Can you please inform me of this other marriage. Thank You, Marsha Stevens
I'm glad to have been helpful. I wonder if you could tell me how you determined that this David was the son of Timothy and Letitia. It's very interesting that, unlike his brothers and sisters, he vanishes after his birth from Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy.
Are you familiar with Yardley Taylor's "Geneological Tree of the Taylor Family," published in 1851, complete with that misspelling? Timothy is the upper trunk, with only Benjamin Taylor and Hannah Towne at the base. David branches off, with blank spaces for two nameless wives and the following children: Timothy, Nancy, Mary, Bernard, Kirkbride, Catharine, John, and Letitia. How does that compare with David's will?
