Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Ohio and currently live in New York.


I have tons of information on my side of the family from my father who has spent many years researching. He was a scientist so he is very meticulous and does not show anything he has not verified in some way.

Researching this joined family: Bown in England and Pittsburgh, Baines/Carnahan in Pittsburgh, ongoing. Much information in late 2009.

I have spent about three years (as of Mar 2009), most painstaking research of finding just one descendant who had any information at all, finding censuses on line, newspaper articles. What I have so far is slim but solid.

Most of this information has come through (after my father's research of 3 generations back) very slow results then finding a whole lode of information through Abenaki websites and through an Abenaki anthropology doctoral candidate who is researching the breaking down and the scattering of the Abenaki communities in St. Francis and the Northeast; and from one descendant who had many records and contributed original research for the Lagrave family.

On my husband's side, the information I have collected since 2007 comes from a genealogy book filled in by Ruth Barber (1886-1966) who was interested in family history; and a briefcase of notes from my mother and father in law, some from his father about family history. I have built on that through census records, church records, and cemetery records, where available and a few ancestry books, specifically Don Barber's Connecticut Barbers.

Maria Noll headstone.
You included a comment in your description from an email from someone who said they were descendant from Maria "she was my GGG grandmother".
I would like to contact that person as Maria Noll was my 3rd great grandmother. Do you recall who sent you the information?

Joseph Taber and Twin Brother
Do you have any documents proving Joseph Taber and his twin brother Dr. Benjamin Taber were born to Thomas Taber and Hannah Davis?

I am trying to prove my ancestry in order to join the Mayflower Society and they are very particular on documentation.

Thank you,

FAG Cynthia T.W. Cameron
Good evening; I do a lot of Vermont Civil War research, and share my info with the '" site, as well as the Sons of Union veterans. Would you give me permission to use this monument photo of Cynthia Cameron to use on the site and share with the Sons of U.V.? Part of the research is finding the resting place of all veterans with any ties to Vt. Many Thanks,

RE: Lidia Rix Barber/Erastus Barber
I just realized that I probably got the relationship between you and Donald Roy Barber wrong. I was thinking he was your husband. He is your father-in-law??
