|Bio and Links|
I'm a native of Utah now living in Raleigh, NC. I'm a genealogist and all around history buff. |
Please let me know if you find errors in my memorials so that I may correct them. Also please feel free to use any photo's I post as long as it's not for profit(if photo's are used "courtesy" of someone, please note that if you repost them).
I HAVE UPLOADED THE PRICE CITY CEMETERY database (Price, UT is my hometown). My goal is to eventually research each burial, post obituary's and link to family members where possible. Besides all my family members this cemetery is the resting place for many friends, and people I knew or knew of, and so is very special to me. As of 7/14/12 THE DATABASE IS COMPLETELY ENTERED FOR BURIALS PRIOR TO AUGUST 2010. Please be careful posting a new memorial in Price City Cemetery with a death date prior to August 2010, as it will likely be a duplication. Sometimes the burial is recorded under a different married name, or a different spelling. There are instances of burials NOT being recorded in the cemetery records (likely one of the "unknowns" listed in the database), however, those are the exception. Only a portion of those I've entered have been researched and completed, but I'm working on it :)
I'm also a contributing Editor for the "Greeks in the West" tree on Ancestry.com. We are attempting to document the Greek immigrants who came to the Western states for the Western Hellenic Family History Library at The Magna Ethnic Mining Museum
If I have posted a memorial for your loved one, please let me know so that I can transfer them to you if they are not a relation of mine. However, due to numerous problems with transfer requests, I have had to adopt the practise of only transfering per Find a Grave's "direct 4 generation rule". I am happy to transfer your immediate family (spouse, children, grandchild, parents, siblings, or grandparents). I will no longer transfer outside of these relationships. Please use the "edit" function on the memorial you are requesting; state your relationship; and include your contributor #.
I am always happy to add or correct information, add links or update information.

You are very welcome. Thank you for your kind message.
|Old Friend||RE: Angus Dewey Russell|
Good Morning Lucia,
Thank you so much for the transfer, I didn't realize he was in the 4 gen rule, but I was sure hoping :)
No worries on the obit, I haven't been able to locate one, so I'll have to put one together.
You've done a beautiful job. Thank you again.
Seeing that he was buried in a wood coffin built by the carpenters at Dorothea Dix Hospital, and probably not embalmed, I highly doubt he was exhumed. I'm glad to see the memorial cenotaph with his wife in the family plot, with the link to his burial at Dix. It gives him some dignity back. Thank you for the note

If you have a connection with Elizabeth Mooney and would like control of her memorial, we are willing to transfer memorial to you if you wish. Just drop us a request for transfer if interested. Elizabeth is no relation on our part.

Thank you for taking time to send valuable information for the memorial. It is terrific information and will be a wonderful asset for future generations.
Good catch on the father link

Lucia, I've been working on these folks in the 1850 census for several days trying to determine the relationships. My deadend is Dewitt Clinton Smith. I recently heard from a DNA researcher 4th cousin, we know not how.... she has a dead end Rathbone- all out of NY. Maybe a coincidence that there is a Rathbun and possibly our Smith in the 1850 Otsego census. At any rate trying to figure out the exact relationships in the 1850 John J Vanderwarker(sic) household; and hoping you can offer some direction. I'm the dau of Helen, who is dau of Lela Calvin, dau of Lenora Smith, dau of D C Smith b 1829 Dutchess, d 1896 Wood co OH. Thanks for any guidance.
|Parish-940||Honor Hurlbut Burr Find A Grave Memorial# 62210146|
Part 2: The explanation regarding husband Nathaniel vs. Jonathan is pretty convincing. The statement that David bought land next to his brother-in-law in 1745 when Honor died in 1741 does not dissuade me. Time and again we find in-laws referred to as "brother" or "sister." It seems to me that Nathaniel would still be referred to B-I-L even though Honor had died previously.
Of course, I am an armchair genealogist, and so I would have to say that this marriage is unproven, though I think it is correct.
|Parish-940||Nathaniel Burr - Find A Grave Memorial# 22567394|
Hello, I've been doing some work regarding Sarah Burr, a daughter who is not listed as a child on this memorial. The conundrum is whether she is a child of his first wife or of his second. However, that's not why I'm writing.
The memorial recites: "CT birth records (Barbour Collection) list March 28 1716/17. As his stone says he was 86, the 1716 year is probably correct." I disagree with that statement. I would take a record made at that time over a gravestone. The double date 1716/17 means that 1717 was the birth year for the Gregorian calendar, which was in use then but not official adopted. Forgive me if I'm explaining something you already know. The gravestone photo is too worn to be read, but I'm betting that it says he died "in his 86th year." That would mean he was 85, going on 86, and would have been 86 his next birthday, that is, September 12 of 1802. That would make 1717 the correct year. That way of expressing age is common on gravestones of that era. Again, forgive me if I'm explaining too much.
Further, I've got some research to do, but several genealogies have shown his first wife to be unknown. One suggests that her name was Martha Hubbard or Martha Knowles. Now I've got another name to research!
