RE: Owen Thomas Curd correction
Dan Curd has indeed done great work. I'll let you know when his book comes out. Rod

RE: Owen Thomas Curd correction
Hi Michelle,

My great grandmother was Clara Winn Curd Overstreet Hill, daughter of Havilah Price Curd. I saw Clara nearly every week until I was 16, so I remember her quite vividly.

Dan Curd is descended from Price's brother, Beverly Daniel "Brud" Curd. He is the leading expert on all things Curd. I have seen an advance draft of his encyclopedic update of the earlier volume. He was born in Graves County (Owensboro), Kentucky, but, like me, his roots are in Barren County. He has traced over 4,000 Curds, not only their genealogy, but also, through extensive news clippings, their human stories.

RE: Owen Thomas Curd correction
Hi Michelle,

Thanks for the question. The dates are from a forthcoming volume on the Curd family from Daniel Smith Curd. They are also consistent with the dates in "The Curd Family in America," by Frank D. Fuller and thomas H.S. Curd, 1938, at pages 81 and 93.

RE: Ruth Forcher
Hi Michelle!

She may well have believed she was born in Georgia if they moved there shortly after her birth. Why would her birth be registered in Texas if she weren't born there? That is a primary, contemporary record. Everything else - census, death certificate - is secondary, based on hearsay. I personally take the Texas record as the correct one. Unless and until a primary record of her birth in Georgia turns up.

Guess I have no proof other than word of mouth of the Eimen family. I didnt keep records of every name change I made in my FTM file.

Family History
Laurel Grove Port Jervis
Hello, the records for Laurel Grove are held by the Minisink Valley Historical Society. They were very generous with their time and research when I contacted them about my ancestors in Port Jervis. They also have access to newspapers and other resources for the area. Good luck with your research.

Thanks for the transfer. No, we aren't in touch with Joe's kids. I have never met them. I met Jim, Sandy's oldest, in 1992. Sandy & Joe were living in Arroyo Grande then.

RE: Narp-Utarp
Hi Michelle,

I think I know now what the Narp-Utarp confusion is. Narp is actually a part of Utarp. It's not a separate town. I was just choosing the name of the place from the drop-down list and must have missed seeing that Narp was an option as well. But it's all good. :)

Thank you again,

RE: Rienelt Lahners
Hi Michelle,

Did I try to edit Rienelt "Reka"'s birthplace? I also have Narp. I thought that the March date was her birthdate and the April her baptism. But I could be wrong. My source was an email from Yvonne Prough back in 2006.

Thanks for all your work on these lines!

I couldn't find him that day, and it has been very difficult to get a response from Newark Valley regarding the layout of the cemetery. But I can make another attempt, and we will see what happens.

Since 1999...I spent hours on there, every day for about 12 years and have finally taken a break from it since last winter. I will probably return to it in the near future. It truly was a labor of love. I hope you find some information which can help you...feel free to copy anything I have.

RE: Lemira Ann Peters Talley
Thank you for the reply, but after I wrote to you, I found out I had the wrong "ancestor" - she is not mine after all. Between the brick walls and the same named people sometimes this searching is difficult. Just when I think I want to give up, I find someone. Thanks again for the reply.

RE: Mary Warren Bartlett
Michelle...she is buried exactly where my comment notes she is buried...."Mary Warren Bartlett was not buried here in White Horse Cemetery in Manomet...she was buried at Burial Hill, Plymouth". There are verifiable lists of unmarked graves in Burial Hill on the internet which confirm this to be true. Many who died were buried in unmarked graves and at night so the Indians would not see the population dwindling. I hope this helps you.

RE: Josiah Bartlett
Hi Michelle,

My husband and I lived most of our lives in Wisconsin but have been in Florida the last 15 years. We are on the brink of retiring (yay!) and so then I will have a lot more time for genealogy.

No -- different Josiah Bartlett signed the Declaration of Independence.

I may get in touch with you as I try to fill out my DAR paperwork, but I think it will be pretty easy as my paternal grandmother was a member and I have a copy of her original DAR certificate with the number on it.

I can remember going to visit her when I was little in suburban Chicago and she would go off to her DAR meetings.

I have a private family tree on and would be happy to share it with you if you like. It used to be public but I had problems with people abusing the use of the photos I had on there (which I think is a pretty common practice, unfortunately) so I made it private.

We've never been to Utah -- bet it's beautiful there. Right now we have the cutest little trick or treaters coming to our door (driven by their parents in Halloween decorated golf carts!)

RE: photo request
Hi Michelle --
My 6th Great Grandfather was Captain Josiah Bartlett, Elizabeth's older brother.
No -- I haven't applied for membership in the Mayflower Society yet.

I also plan to apply for D.A.R. membership in the future.

Please let me know if I can be of any help to your husband.
