Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am fascinated with genealogy and have 39,000 plus people in my My Heritage gedcom. Findagrave.com has been a great place to find information and images to not just add data but to feel closer to my ancestors. I had often wanted to add flowers or contribute information so I joined the site. It has been a joy to add sites and manage sites of ancestors to share their lives with others who are seeking as I was. Thank you to all memorialists who tend to our relatives and ancestors.

RE: Mary McCartney
If I did not have a picture of the stone on the record the chances are that I got the information from the grave book at the Library.

I suggest you contact the library or the cemetery for more information

RE: Isaac Swain Sr
It's so much fun to have interesting ancestors. Also fun to find cousins no matter how distant! I was able to find out the name of the Barbara in the photo. She is Barbara Williams Honey and she descends through Rebecca's son Ezra's first wife (I descend through the 2nd wife Electa Jane). Her side of the family is very active in family history. There were many children from the first wife - only one from the 2nd so we are kind of the "black sheep" at the Williams family reunions. Because Rebecca and Ezra joined the LDS Church and came west, most of our line live in Utah, Idaho, and Arizona. Where has your line of the family settled?

RE: Isaac Swain Sr
Hi Barbara. The photo of Isaac Swain's house is one I found on familysearch.org and was posted by Pam Pratt. I don't know who Barbara is. Not from my line. I am descended through Isaac's daughter Rebecca. She was disowned by her father for joining the LDS Church in 1830. It's an interesting story. So is the story of her half brother William who was involved in the California Gold Rush. I have all my information uploaded to ancestry.com. Thanks for the message cousin!

RE: DANIEL BURT
Yes indeed! Wasn't that some story? Just think if that little girl hadn't hid in the tobacco shed we would not be here today! Have a great day!

RE: DANIEL BURT
Daniel Burt (1716 - 1805)

is my 7th great grandfather
Here is a copy of my Burt line. If you have not done so look up his mother Sara Foote Belden and her mother Elizabeth Foote from Deerfield MA. Look up the Deerfield Massacre . It is a wonder we are here! Only because Daniels Mother hid from the Indians while her family was all killed.


Martha Burt (1743 - 1817)

daughter of Daniel Burt


Huldah Whitney (1769 - 1852)

daughter of Martha Burt



Esther Bailey (1794 - 1850)

daughter of Huldah Whitney



Matilda Mott (1813 - 1886)

daughter of Esther Bailey



Matilda Allman (1840 - 1925)

daughter of Matilda Mott



George Shelby Bogert (1862 - 1917)

son of Matilda Allman



Wilbur Barlow Bogert (1891 - 1954)

son of George Shelby Bogert was my grandfather.

I am not in any way related to the Jamison. I just take tombstone pictures and put the memorials on line. The info of birth place and death was sent via edits by some one.
All the connection were also made by someone via the edit tab

RE: Francis Jamison Jr (reply)
Barbara,

I assume you are refering to the memorial I posted for Francis Jamison, Sr. b. 1721 d. 1792 buried at the Middle Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Mt. Pleasant, Westmoreland Co., PA?

I was NOT aware that Francis Sr. and wife Margaret (who very curiously died the very same day) had a son named Francis Jamison, Jr. I am not a Jamison descendant but rather related by marriage many times over, as one of Francis's descendants had 10 sons and the town of Greensburg, PA, that I grew up in - now has scores of Jamisons because of that.

I got the information about Francis Jamison being buried in this cemetery from my godfather, a David Jamison of Greensburg (now deceased). He and I both looked for the man's stone (and that of his wife) but fear that they are no longer extant (as with many others in this old cememtery). Son Robert Jamison is buried there.

Please do send me any information you have about son Francis Jamison, Jr. I would be happy to include it in his father's biography. I would also be happy to transfer this memorial over to you if you like and if you show me definitively that Francis Jr. connects to his father. I am not aware of anything else about Francis Jr. his spouse or Ohio descendants so I can't help you much with any DAR application.

None of the Greensburg Jamisons (and there are many) other than David seems to be much interested in genealogy, so I have endeavored to be the keeper of the flame for that family in our town (my first cousins are also Jamison descendants of Francis, but I have many other second cousins and many third ones, aunts and uncles who are descendants as well).

I hope you noted that I linked son Marmaduke (love the name) to his father - he never married. He is buried in Lawrence County, PA.

I live in Florida but am currently staying at our summer cottage near Mt. Pleasant for the next few days. I took lots of photos at the Middle Presbyterian cemetery the other day, but if you have other families from there you want me to look for I would be happy to.

Kind rgds,

Arthur Humphrey

RE: DANIEL BURT
Hello Cousin!
My line and yours go back to Daniel Burt and his daughter Martha who married Daniel Whitney. Then my line takes off in a different branch. One of Their daughers was Huldah Whitney who married a Bailey and they had a daughter Ester Bailey who married Charles Mott. They had a daughter Matilda Mott ( my great great great grandmother) who married Issac Bailey Allman and they had a daughter named Matilda Allman who married John C. Bogert (who was killed in the civil war) and they had a son George Bogert who had a son Wilbur Bogert who had a daughter Rita Bogert who was my mother.
Recently I have been doing quite a bit of work on our mutual line, that is Daniel Burt and beyond.
His mother was Sarah Foote Belden whos mother was Elizabeth Foote (Belden) who was killed in the Deerfield MASS (Indian) Massacre in 1696. Actually Daniels mother Sarah barely escaped by hiding but the fate of her brothers and sisters and mother was not as lucky. Most of the children were killed with their mother. A son Samuel was struck in the head with a hatchet but lived. You can read about the massacre on line. This line is a very old American Colonial family. In Deerfield Mass there is a monument to all those that were slain there.And a mass grave. We should be so proud to be decendant from them. If you are on ancestory.com my tree is open to the public and you will find all my documentation there.
I hope you enjoyed reading this although a sad story.
Be well,
your cousin Joyce
