RE: Martha Wetherbee Foster!
I let her know it's been fixed. Thanks again!! By the way, I have a copy of the page from the Mortuary Records, showing the listing for Martha and Addison, if you need the documentation.

Martha Foster (#134385112)
In response to a request for a photo of the headstone, upon visiting the office at Tacoma Cemetery I determined that this person is not buried there. According to records compiled by the Buckley-King Funeral Home and the Tacoma-Pierce County Genealogical Society, Martha Ann Foster was buried in St. Paul, Minnesota. In addition, these same records show her husband, Addison G Foster, also being buried in St. Paul, not Tacoma.

Joseph Bardwell's Parents
Hi, I'm working on a sketch for the New England Historical Society for Joseph Bardwell and Lydia Morton, his wife. I have found evidence that John Bardwell is not the father of Joseph, but Ebenezer and Mary (Field) Bardwell are his father and mother. First the Bardwell/Bordwell Descendants book on explains that an error has occurred in the parentage and second the will of Ebenezer Bardwell clearly states that he is leaving land to his sons, Ebenezer, Remembrance, Jonathan, and Joseph.

Source: Compiled by Robert Bardwell Descendants’ American Ancestry Association, Editor – Chamberlain, Portia, “Bardwell/Bordwell, Descendants Book 2”, Printed Los Altos, California, December 1974, Page 22. (Copy can be found on under Title).

Source: Hampshire County Deeds [in Hampden County], I:597. Belchertown, established in 1761, was “formerly the plantation called ‘Cold Spring’” (William Francis Galvin, Historical Data Relating to Counties, Cities and Towns in Massachusetts, 5th ed. [Boston: NEHGS, 1997], 17).

"On 8 March 1736/7, Joseph purchased from his brother Ebenezer 75 acres in Cold Spring, a fourth of 300 acres that had been given to Ebenezer, Remembrance, Joseph, and Jonathan by their father Ebenezer Bardwell. On 29 August 1739, Ebenezer, Remembrance, and Jonathan Bardwell of Hatfield, Hampshire County, and Joseph Bardwell of Cold Spring [in Belchertown], exchanged 400 acres in “Housatonnock Township” for 500 acres on the east side of the Connecticut River “over against the mouth of Deerfield River.”

The sketch will appear on the website soon and you will be able to read the entire sketch. Please reconsider my requested changes. Thank you.

You can email at and I can send you copies of the sources as well.

Thank you.

RE: Chester and Sarah Hamant Walker
Nancy: Delighted to send along the photos of Chester and Sarah. They were in an old family album descended from David Hamant who was born in Sturbridge in 1800, and went west to Jennings County, Indiana.

RE: gravesites
Hi Nancy,

It is my pleasure to do this. I am going through the entire cemetery with the restoration documents on some of the stones from 20 years ago, and documenting and geolocating all the stones.

Almost half way done now. Woohoo!!! :)

RE: WAlkers

The copy I sent you was from the following book:

Church records, 1806-1861

Congregational Church (Exeter, New York) (Main Author)
Manuscript/Manuscript on Film
Salt Lake City, Utah : Filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, 1966
on 1 microfilm reel ; 35 mm.

If you are on, I looked through the whole book on there.
I am trying like heck to locate it again for you!

RE: WAlkers
The page was from the Exeter Presbyterian Church records. I would imagine it is located in the library in Cooperstown but it may be located at the Exeter Historical Society right in Schuyler Lake. I was looking at a scanned copy of the entire book. It is 64 pages of the church's mission, births, deaths, and records of meetings for the years 1825-1861, although there are earlier records in there, also.
I found baptismal records by accident while looking up the book title for you, for John and Norman Walker, sons of John Brewer and Laura Lucina Walker. I will send it, if you'd like. I'm not sure how interested in this info you are...don't want to e-mail you things you do not want.
