|Bio and Links|
Charles V. Waid (Chuck) born in San Francisco, California, married his 9th cousin, Barbara L. Brown. We have 100's of Massachusetts ancestors.|
Lived in Oxford, Massachusetts in the early 2000's, for 3 years just to document our ancestors, and now back in Bonney Lake, Washington. Have been doing genealogy since 1979 and full time since 1996.
My wife and I both descend from Lot Conant and Experince Mitchell. Both men coming to America on the "Ann" in 1621.
I ONLY maintain our families and their family members. I will transfer members of those families if they are not direct ancestors of ours.
We are always happy to share genealogical information about our ancestors with our "cousins".

Thanks for the additional info. I've updated Zebulon's page re: the Newark meeting of 1794, also crediting you as the source.
|Nikita Barlow||"The Widow Abigail Jones"|
According to James Hoyt's "The Mountain Society, A History of the First Presbyterian Church, Orange", a local history published in 1860, Abigail Ball, the daughter of Joseph and Anna Ball of Bloomfield, had married Daniel Harrison (p.32). Hoyt doesn't mention subsequent marriages, but it's possible that Abigail's gravestone soubriquet, "the Widow", was inspired by her having survived 3 husbands: Harrison, Curry, and Zebulon Jones. Evidently Zebulon must have died prior to 1801, and Abigail may have returned to Bloomfield, which would account for her burial there rather than in the Orange churchyard.
|Nikita Barlow||Abigail Jones, nee Ball|
What a coincidence! I'd created Abigail's memorial page many years ago, after photographing many of the early American stones in Bloomfield Cemetery, including hers. She's ID'd as "Widow Abigail Jones" on her gravestone, but I don't know who her deceased husband was, only that she was buried near her father, a prominent man in Bloomfield.

I think we may have conflicting info. Zebulon's wife, the former Lydia Harrison, died on April 10, 1782, according to her relatively elaborate ledger-style gravestone in the Orange Presbyterian churchyard, which also bears an epitaph that seems to reflect the sentiments of a grieving widower. If Zebulon himself had died just 6 days later, in all likelihood the couple would have been buried side by side. Also, he's said to have later married a widow named Curry, which also makes it unlikely that he died just 6 days after his first wife. This is why I'm hesitant to add the death date you've suggested.
|Stephanie Myers Landis||RE: Anna Ribble|
Christopher Jr. died in 1880 at Delaware, Indiana. I have been trying to straighten out Christopher Sr.'s line to determine kinship. I have Surface (in early PA records spelled Cervas of Zerfas) and Myers in my tree. Magdalena who married John Myers is apparently linked to the wrong John Myers. I have not been able to Christopher Sr.'s will on Family Search. Do you have a copy of it?
