RE: Witter Genealogy
Thanks Bette - Your finding Ebenezer at Westfield was very helpful to me. Finding grave stones that far back is surprising given the type of stone used. Many more modern era stones are hard to read.

Capt. Ebenezer Witter
He is my 4X great Grandfather. I am from his son Ebenezer who married Zerviah Spalding buried at Lagrange cemetery in NY. Then Robert Witter and James Witter who moved to Wisconsin. I have grave photos for all but Joseph 1698-1791, Josiah 1638-1685 and William and Annis Churchman who started it all. I did visit cemeteries in Conn last week and took photos at Avery and Preston City. Another cousin posted a photo of the grave of Josiah's wife - Elizabeth. Do you have any info on where Joseph and William might be buried. Can not find anything on Find A Grave. I have the 1926 book as well as updates for my line published by Harold Witter back in the 90s. Thanks!

Hi Bette, if you would like to transfer Sophia Sherwin Belknap to me, that would be great. I plan more additions as soon as I can find her parents: Elnathan Sherwin and Abigail Bacon, who should be buried in Clermont County, Ohio.

Best regards,

Ah, that is a good one.....!
Don't worry, just finished correcting all 330 Elzabeth to Elizabeth. Some 14,000 corrections done, but I could spend another 10 months and not finish...

Have a nice day.

RE: Anna Cutler Jones
OK, Anna has been re-linked, and that seems to have done the trick. Thanks!

Kristin Jones
RE: Isaac Jones 1728-1813
Hi Bette,

The marriage year was already entered; I don't know why it is not sorting correctly. I tried un-linking and re-adding her and it did not help.

Perhaps it is because they are linked from different pages? Maybe if you un-link Anna from her page, and I re-add her from his, that will get it to sort correctly.

David Sumner 40132403
I am a descendent of David Sumner, #40132403 & just visited his grave in Milton. I have a photo of his headstone and would also like to have his memorial transferred to me so that I may maintain it - add bio info, etc.

Would you be able to transfer his memorial?

Thank you!

RE: Sally Young
The source is the book Milton Records: Births, Marriages and Deaths 1662-1843, in the Births Section, page 78. The entry reads: YOUNG, Salley, Dau. of John and Melatiah, Jan. 27, 1786.

The book is available at the Intenet Archive website.

Thank you for asking.

RE: Carrie Pease
Did I give you a date of birth? I know I looked long and hard and don't remember if I came up with it. Having trouble finding it again. The place of birth is what is written in her obituary published in the Berkshire Eagle June 25 1957.

Jones Family in Weston
Hi Bette.

You've done a great job with the Jones Family in Weston's Central and Farmer's Cemetery. The Golden Ball Tavern, which was built by Isaac Jones, factored in Revolutionary War activities in the area and was home to six generations of his descendants, is now a National Historic Landmark and museum. The Golden Ball Tavern museum Facebook page has a lot of images and great information on the tavern and the Jones family, if you're interested.
