RE: Re: Capt. Peter Layton
Sure - here's my e-mail: jerseymap at (written this way to foil spam bot harvesting). I live in Morris county and periodically go through the "unmapped cemeteries" on Find A Grave to see if I can weed out those that are troubling (or if I can post the locations of those that do in fact exist).

I've worked with the Morristown Library folks a few times and they're usually pretty reliable, so I'm curious to see what they sent you.

Dear P. Vaughn

I thought I would go to the location of the Old Cemetery in Morristown and poke around, but I can't find the intersection on Google Maps.

I can see Elm St. very clearly (it's in an old section of town), and there is a "Lord Stirling Drive" in Morris Township, but they are quite far from one another.

Any thoughts? And is "Old" the actual name of the cemetery? It sounds odd....

Send this questions and all others to me at my email and please don't forget to delete the message with my email address in it bec others can see what people have sent you and will be able to get my email. I privatized it on here bec soooooo many people were sending me stuff that I had no idea why. I guess they thought since they knew I lived in IN I could help them out. And if I could, I would. But I don't have time to help all people. I with it were my job I would love it!!

If I can find out anything more or hear from them will let you know. The one thing was she told me it said his father was James M. Sr. sup Sr was on there, and to be a Sr you have to have the exact same name.

I am trying now to get the library that told me that to get me info on that marriage. They just said that it said in the marriag index that James M. Parvis to his 2nd wife said his father was James M Sr. I haven't seen the paper so that is why I want them to send me something or at least state to me again. I don't want to have to go to Marion it abt 1 hr drive.

RE: William T. McCord
I can tell you that he is buried next to Samantha A Parvis child of JM & Nancy. I don't have the memorial # off hand but she may be part of you McCord-Parvis family.

Happy Hunting!

Hello again,

I am not sure where you live but we live in Indiana abt 2 hrs from Wayne & Fayette Co IN.
We have been there many many many times (too many LOL :). Anyway, we have come to the conclusion that Thomas & Lydia make the most sense as being parents of James Madison (you have William) Parvis.

We sat down there and at my house comparing and comparing census', and other info that we could find to try to fit everyone together. When we saw the obit for (Mary) Elizabeth (Mott) Parvis we were so glad to find it. It only states that she had 9 children and 4 survive and it said two dts Mrs Williams (this would be Elizabeth who mar Alfred Williams) and Mrs Muzzy (this would be Sarah and her 2nd husb Marantius Muzzy).

We know for sure the names of children Of James & (Mary) Mott are:
1. William 9/1826 Delaware died bef 1910 we bel in IN
2. Thomas J. abt 1830 Delaware died bef 1870 IN
3. James Madison Parvis Jr 2/1832 Delaware - Dec 11, 1908 Grant Co IN
4. Sarah abt 1834 Franklin Co IN (as far as we can tell they were in IN abt 1833) - died aft 1887 but prob be 1900 in Wayne or Fayette Co IN mar twice first to John Robinette 2nd Marantius Muzzy.
5. Daniel abt 1839 Franklin Co IN - died bef 1870
6. Elizabeth 2/1841 - died ? mar Alfred Williams
7. Henry b abt 1843 died bef 1870.

Now the other two infants are unknown gender and birth & death. We don't know if they were born in Delaware and died there or born there and died in Indiana or born and died in Indiana. Bec we don't know when they were born so depending on yr then we would know where they were born & died. But we couldn't find anything at all on them.

From the dates of the other kids I assume one was born btw 1827-1839 (bec Wm was born 1826 and there is a gap btwn him & Thomas b 1830 and there is a gap btw Sarah 1834 & Daniel 1839. Then the other infant was poss born btw 1835-1838 bec of the gap btw Sarah & Daniel. So these infants could have both been born in Franklin Co IN and died there or one one could have been born in Delaware?? Not sure. I just put one as being born btw 1827-1838 Del or IN and the other 1835-1838 IN and both dying bef 1887. But I am sure they were dead way bef that prob at a young age.

I am not sure where James & (Mary) Elizabeth are in 1840 but do not bel that William is him. I think it is poss they are living in the home of another family member but no proof.

Do you mind me asking what kin you are? I am not but my cousin is and I help him with his research.

We have been to Brookville & Connersville many times, we only live abt 2 hr drive up in Madison Co. IN.

Now my cousin is family to Parvis and James Parvis whom you have as James Wm Parvis was his 2nd cousin 4x removed if we have everything correct. Even if we don't he is still related to him.

Now we have come to the conclusion that is highly likely that this James who mar Mary Elizabeth Mott is the son of Thomas & Lydia Parvis but we have no absolute proof yet.

Also, when James' son James Madison Parvis mar the 2nd time his father was listed as James M Sr. Now we bel that James name is James Madison Sr. but again no absolute proof there.

But I don't think the Wm Purvis is James Parvis. For one thing he should only be abt 49 and this Wm Purvis is 50-59. And son Daniel should be only 1 yr old and there is no son there that age. The youngest son is age 10-14

Nothing fits with James as being this Wm Purvis.
James & (Mary) Elizabeth (Mott) Parvis should have a son under 5 (Daniel) 1 son 5-10 James 1 son 10-15 Thomas and a dt 5-10 Sarah.

This Wm Purivs does not have a son under 5 nor a dt exc one female age 20-29 and then wife age 40-50.

So I really don't think this is James Parvis (who we bel to be James Madison Parvis, Sr.)

Please take a look at the 1840 census and compare his children to that.

I mean I guess that we could take a drive to Marion IN where the death for James Jr. would be and see what it says, however, we don't have any plans to do that.

RE: Jesse S Crocker - Marshall cemetery
Since you have a death date, check the newspapers for Marshall & Clark County. Here is the library web site and towards the bottom half is a link to the archives. It's easy to understand from that point. Use Internet Explorer though, Google Chrome just gives you a white page.

Also, here's IL pre 1916 deaths (some counties don't have any info)

and, 1916-1950

Marriages before 1900:

Jesse S Crocker - Marshall cemetery
Thank you so much for the information on Jesse. I updated the memorial. I was going thru the cemetery listings of no markers and have found a lot of error's in it. Now, I'm going a bit slower and investigating them as best I can..there are a lot of burials and very slow process. Any info is appreciated.

Hi again distant cousin. I do remember talking to you a while ago, not that you mention it. I was so happy to get the info you shared with me! Thank you ever so much! I loved the personal stories too, about the Saw Mill, etc. Thank you so much for sharing with me. Please feel free to share anything you find with me. I am so grateful! Thank you again. It is so fun to find cousins!

Hi... Are you related to Betsey Vaughn (1828 - 1903)? She was married to Henry Teachout. I noticed you left flowers on Hennery Benner's page. Henry Benner is the grandson of Henry Teachout & Betsey Vaughn. Henry & Betsey are my Great-Great grandparents. I would love to talk to you about the Vaughn line if these names are familiar to you. Hope to hear from you soon. Weezie Boyd

RE: Richard Vaughn
the pictures would be great, thanks, I will try and keep you posted on any other info. I am tracking her sister Ruth Magdalene Porter born 1917 and married Charles E Stegner. Next time I am in Sedalia I hope to search out info from their library. I think she died in KC and he in the state of Washington. Later Mike

RE: Richard Vaughn
there were aunts on the Zinn side and lived near by. A Mrs Walter Scott of Hughesville, Mrs Lee Jeffries of Lamonte and Mrs Ernest Jenkins of Kansas city. then their uncle is shown in 1930 with her in his home plus the grandmother Mary Zinn. that is about all I know of their upbringing. I do have the story as told in the paper about the shooting of their mother by the father and then the mothers father John Zinn shooting the Son in Law. Her mother was shot twice. Very sad I would have to say. I think the 3 kids were split up. You wouldn't know if she had any old pictures of the Zinn side would you. I kind of doubt it as most everyone were quite old and the kids would most likely have been moved around a lot..

RE: William Martin
Carbondale was first settled in 1854, the last burial in Woodlawn Cemetery was 100 years later in 1954. From the style and condition of this partial broken stone, I would guess it was from the first 50 years. Any person (of any age) who went by the name William Martin in Jackson County during that timeframe is a possibility. Some of those are easy to document elsewhere, so we can tell it's not them. However, I wanted to note that this stone was not recorded in previous Woodlawn cemetery transcriptions, so it may have been moved here from another cemetery at a later date. I have added all of the information you sent to the memorial page for this marker, as I agree he is the most likely candidate. I reviewed the records I had and added the rest of the documented Martin names to the cemetery. The majority (but not all) are the immediate family of "Charles and Sarah Martin," but Martin was a common name here (still is). I will check the county probate files for the death date you suggested, maybe that will give place of burial for your William. If not, hopefully someday the second half of the stone with the dates will be uncovered!

RE: William Martin
Unfortunately there are several other possible William Martins in the Carbondale area. I was hoping you had a source for birth, death, or burial in Woodlawn for your William. I will make a notation on the page for William Martin in Woodlawn of this information for one possible William Martin. Thanks for sending it.

Because Martin is such a common name here, I was wondering if you could share your sources for the info you sent? I want to make sure it's the right William Martin.
