|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in genealogy since the late '70s, when a cousin showed me a 1901 genealogy, "The Descendants of William Wood" in which my late grandmother was mentioned. I like this site and have made an effort to try to locate all the ancestor graves I can. I'm always available to take grave photos in the Twin City area, that is, when they're not under two feet of snow.|
Feel free to contact me with additional information or corrections. I will gladly transfer any memorial that I created that is your direct family member and not mine. You may use any pictures I add to memorials.
If I send you a biography or information about any memorial that you manage and you are no longer interested in maintaining that memorial, I will be glad to accept a transfer.

Ken - Thanks for your narrative bio on this person.
I've seen the various marriage records available from Ancestry.com that use the various last names for a woman named Mary that you also mentioned in her bio.
I think it's unlikely that the woman who married Michael Wood in England was the same woman listed on the New England marriage record who had the maiden name of Thompson & who later married Thomas Read.
Both "Mary" and "Wood" are common names so I think it is much more likely that Michael Wood's wife from England is not this other Mary.
So my best guess is that Michael Wood's first wife from England had the maiden name of Harlow. That marriage record does not list a location of the marriage, but based on the dates being prior to the Pilgrims' landing, it obviously took place in England.
Please let me know what you think about my theory.
Thanks a lot - Janet
That is Sarah Brechin.

Ken, thank you! Be sure to check your listed e-mail.

Hi Ken - I put in a photo request for this grave but just got a response saying they couldn't find any record of her having been buried at Wethersfield cemetery. Would you please check your information about this grave to see if we can track down where she is actually buried?
THanks a lot for your help on this.
Thank you so much !!! :) Have a wonderful *Christmas holiday.

Thank you for giving so much information about the Johnson family. It helped my American cousin to trace back her ancestry.
If you want to add to some of your information about the Johnsons, there is a book about Selbu on the Internet. It is in Norwegian, but you can still get the names of children and farms:

I'm sorry, but I don't have that obit.
If you are a Wisconsin resident, or know someone who is, the state of Wisconsin has recently digitized and put online many of the state's newspapers from that era. Only catch is, you have to be a Wisconsin resident to access them.http://badgerlink.dpi.wi.gov/
The Wisconsin Historical Society also has some searchable newspapers and newspaper indexes on line https://www.wisconsinhistory.org/Content.aspx?dsNav=N:4294963828-4294963805&dsRecordDetails=R:CS1590
Because I don't have any way to access the restricted stuff, I usually try to figure out various permutations of what I'm looking for,put it into a search, then hope that I can access a cached version that someone else has accessed in their own search. Sound strange, but it has worked for me!
Hope this helps a little.
|cchldrss||Aersen vs Middagh|
Found your Middagh FAGs interesting. I am an Arrison (Aersen) researcher. I noticed your statement regarding difficulty separating Jan Aersen of the ferry and Jan Aertsen Middagh. Seeing that I went back through your messages until I found two from K. Perry. As usual Bergen was cited. Here is the best item to send future such cites: From 1998,
"...Jan AERSEN (or AERTSEN), who is generally referred to as "Jan of the Ferry", never used the surname MIDDAGH. Rather, Teunis G. Bergen in his epochal tome "Early Settlers of Kings County in Alphabetical ..." and in his book "The Bergen Family or the Descendants of Hans Hansen Bergen..." confused him with a s/o Aert Theuniszen (or Anthonize) MIDDAGH who was named Jan Aertsen MIDDAGH who married Geertje Teunisse CLAERWATER."
From: Jack Middaugh email@example.com Dutch-Colonies-L Archives Archiver > Dutch-Colonies > 1998-04 > 0893717450
I, of course, sent a message to K. Perry, in which I pointed this out and noted that Jan Aersen of the ferry never used the name Middagh, nor did any of his children. Unfortunately, both of the Bergen books as well a Hoagland book keep perpetuating this confusion. Maybe its time for a Aersen researcher to team up with a Middagh researcher to see if we can cleanup some of this confusion. Interested?

No problem at all! This would probably make us distant cousins.
