Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been active in family history, in Massachusetts since 1975, Nova Scotia & Europe since 1980, and in New Brunswick, Maine & world-wide since 2000.

My research is focused on eastern Massachusetts, southern New Hampshire, the upper Connecticut River Valley, nearly all of Maine, nearly all of Nova Scotia, Kent York & Queens Counties in New Brunswick, Pelletiers & Ouellet(te)s of Salem MA and Kamouraska in Quebec, Bonavista & Trinity Bays in Newfoundland, Castle Rock & Tower Washington, Metro Portland Oregon, Ostholstein Ploen Segeberg Kiel & Hamburg in Germany, Sarreguemines L'Havre & Paris in France, Faial in the Azores of Portugal, Valparaiso Limache Olmue & Santiago in Chile, Lochaber Great-Glen Ardnamurchan Sunart Muck Mull Perth Blair-Atholl Galloway Dumfries Annan Gretna & KPF in Scotland, Tyrone Derry Londonderry Fermanagh & Armagh in Ireland, and Suffolk Norfolk Herts Bucks Dorset & Middlesex in England.

If I've taken a photo of a grave, please ask for permission before republishing elsewhere, online or offline. If I maintain a memorial, and it's for one of your ancestors or relatives, I will almost certainly transfer management of the memorial to you, gladly, if it is not a nearer relative to either myself or my wife.

I'm the US GenWeb Project Volunteer Town Coordinator for Middleton & Beverly, in Essex County, Massachusetts. I'm glad if I can help you out with any searches in these towns.

Or feel free to drop me a line, if you are looking for sources in the areas I've researched, or you find we are cousins, and I'm missing you folks, or if maybe we can share sources or tree info.

9 Great Grandparents
Hi Barry, hope you can help me. I have John Chew,s/o John and Sarah Bond Chew Ann Gates d/o Stephan & Ann Veare Gates. I know the 10 GGP's landed in Jamestown, VA. John Sr sailed on the Charitie, 1621-1622 from Somerset, UK to Jamestown His wife and son, John, sailed in 1623 on Seaflower to Jamestown. I have John and Ann Gates Chew having 8GGF, Richard Chew in 1655 Flushing, NY. I believe the story goes 2 of their sons were chasing runaway slaves to NJ, liked it and stayed. I got this info from a Chew Genealogy Book.
So question is have you seen any mention of another daughter, Ann Gates???
Best regards, Cindy Tunnicliffe Guerin

Helen Tipert
Well, hopefully Mr. G will delete his record and leave yours as it is the most complete and has a cemetery attached to it. He has gotten more responsive about adding a cemetery location (I have sent him hundreds of edits adding the cemetery location), but he is not very responsive about deleting his duplicate records. So good luck.

RE: Helena Lach Tipert
Hi Barry,
Social Security says Helena Lach Tipert was born January 11,1914 in Salem to Marek Lach and Rose Blaszczak. She married Louis N. Tipert on April 14, 1934 in Salem, NH. She died October 23, 2007 in North Andover, according to her obituary and Social Security, although Social Security does not record place of death, so it is not always reliable. I have submitted edits to John Gibney to correct his record as it was the earliest Find A Grave memorial. He hasnít done it yet.

RE: Ava B. Swett - Amherst Maine
Seems like a fair assumption. If you can find the cemetery records it would answer the question. Good luck with your research!

Sarah Proctor Dodge wife of Lt. John Dodge

Welcome to the Lt. John Dodge, Capt. John Dodge, Sarah Proctor Dodge, and Sarah [unknown] Dodge merry-go-round.

First, Capt John Dodge did marry Sarah Proctor on 10 November 1659 in Salem, Essex Massachusetts Bay, British Colonial America. Keep in mind that Capt. John Dodge was a Lieutenant before he was a Captain.

Second, Lt. John Dodge married Sarah [unknown] about the same time probably in Beverly.

Capt John Dodge is an uncle to Lt John Dodge. I have seen them merged, their children shuffled together and some merged away.

I can provide documentation for Capt John Dodge and Sarah Proctor's marriage. I can also show that Lt. John Dodge had a wife named Sarah. I have seen Sarah Porter used but I find no documentation.

There is a good reference book, "Genealogy of the Dodge Family of Essex County, Mass, 1629-1894" Originally published in 1894 by Joseph Thompson Dodge, Ph. D. T two Johns are numbers 4 and 7, pages 17-18 and 21-24. The book is not perfect but is probably the best available. It can be found on several of the websites in PDF including and

Good luck,
