RE: Patrick Barry
is there away to attach a PDF file to this message board as I have it in that format. If not how about a link? I have the link but I don't recall the reel # etc. If neither is possible I will look it up later today I knew he was in Lower Canada but I didn't know he had petitions there. It's an incredible life story.

Patrick Barry Sr.
For anyone researching the Patrick Barry and Deborah Smith family, on the Library and Archives Canada site on-line there is a land petition for Patrick Barry Sr. (the date on the petition looks like it's 1811) and attached to it is the petition by his son Thomas (petition date 1819). The petition can be downloaded. The petition tells Patrick's life story and tracks his movements after his arrival in America. It's quite an amazing story.

Relative of Elizabeth brother Miles Conrad
Miles Conrad brother of Elizabeth Conrad Hooks married and had a daughter Sarah Conrad who married Dickens. They had a daughter who married Mooney, and they had a daughter, my mother. I think it makes him my mother's great grandfather.
I was hoping to get photographs of miles and his family and wondered what you could share with me regarding the family.
This site was most informative - did the stories came from journals?
I can be reached at

William Graves
I have built our family tree back to Henrietta and mother Harriet, but cannot seem to find any records on this William her father? Most other trees have Fredrick as her father? Do you have any other info on William? I noticed that when Henrietta signed her husbands death certificate she spelled her maiden name as Greaves?

Julia Townsend Hedge
I question the relationship of Julia to Gilbert and Armenia Gleason Townsend. I have a list of names with birthdates for Gilbert and Armenia and their children written by their daughter-in-law Adelia Schenck Townsend (wife of Absolem). Julia is NOT on this list. In checking census, I find Julia with Edwin M. Townsend and his wife Hester, and in turn they are living nearly next door to Chester Townsend and Delight (Wilbur) Townsend on the 1850 census of Livington county, Michigan. I do not believe that Gilbert and Armenia ever lived in Livingston county. When they came from NY they settled in New Hudson township of Oakland county, MI. I realize that there is a Julia Pebbles listed with Mr. Pebbles and that Armenia and her son Sylvester were enumerated under the Pebbles name in 1860, but Armenia is buried with her husband Gilbert as a Townsend. Julia Pebbles must belong to Mr. Pebbles and NOT to Armenia Gleason Townsend.

RE: Horace McGraw
I'm looking into it. I think the dates are too coinsidental. I used to correspond with Horace's daughter-in-law but she has since died. I'll have to go through her letters and see what I may have missed. I also have a call in to the cemetery. The nice man there is looking up old burial records and promised to get back to me. I'll let you know. Gale

John Franklin Horrighs
Riley J. Westcot
I was not aware there was a duplicate memorial for this man. Mr. Moody who has sponsored this memorial is related to Riley through his gggrandfather I believe. Sorry for the confusion, I did a fairly through search before creating the memorial.

RE: Harriet Bibby Conrad
I also have an written history about Harriette Phoebe Bibby that talks about Ann Bubb (her mother) and how she was a milliner (straw hat maker) for Queen Victoria and the Queens family. Ann sister tutored for the Queen's family. If your are interested in the story send me your email address and I will email you what information I have on the family.

RE: Harriet Bibby Conrad
What I have is a photocopy of a LDS Family Group Record. It states that William Graves was born about 1843 in Provo,Utah,Utah. He married in 1865 to Harriet Phoebe Bibby in Provo,Provo,Utah. The LDS Church Baptized him on 24 Sep 1965 then Endowed him on 20 Jan 1966. They had a daughter Henrietta Orlando Graves. There is a notation on the bottom of the Record stating that he was killed by Indians when Henrietta Orlando Graves was a baby and his daughter was adopted by Fredrick Conrad

William Graves Death
I am in possession of documents stating that William Graves was killed by indians when Henrietta Orlando Graves Conrad was a baby before Harriet Bibby's marriage to Fredrick Conrad. I was wondering if you possessed any documents or proof of a divorce. I am trying to determine which is accurate.

Aaron Hansen
Ann Crosby's father
hello, I'm trying to found more information on Ann Crosby and her father, Thomas. The death certificate says that her father's name was John, but other sites ( list him as Thomas Crosby. Do you have any further information regarding Thomas Crosby, father of Ann/Annie Crosby?

Rosa Ellen (Ward) Helms, Mem.# 93899851
I have been researching my wife's Great Grandparents, Philip W. Helms and Rosa Ellen (Ward) Helms, who lived in Kiowa County and later in Otero County, Colorado. I found your listing for Rosa in the Eads Cemetery along with that of her step daughter, Gertrude Lottie Helms.

I know that Gertrude's body was reburied there when the family moved from their homestead near Eads in Kiowa County in the mid to late 1890's. But I am surprised to see that Rosa would have been buried there also.

The family sold their homestead in Kiowa County in February of 1898 and were living in the La Junta area in Otero County when Rosa died in October of 1898. Family history records say that she died in La Junta. I would normally expect that she would have been buried there, not back up in Eads.

Do you know for a fact that she is indeed buried there? Is there a gravestone for her there, which would verify this for sure?

Any information you may be able to provide will be greatly appreciated. You may e-mail me directly at the address below. Thank you in advance for your time and efforts.

Alfred Robert Elmore / Memorial # 49178440
During the First World War Alfred R. Elmore worked closely with Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt on a "home front" campaign called "Eyes For The Navy" asking the public to donate binoculars, field glasses, and telescopes to the Navy for anti-submarine surveillance. I am writing a book about the "Eyes For The Navy" campaign and would like to include a Chapter about Elmore and his contribution to the project. Any information about Elmore that is available to you and that you could share with me would be most appreciated.

Dena West
Clara Townsend Info
If you go here- you can do a search on her name and find her death certificate. It says she died at the state hospital in Kalamazoo, she was married, age 34, the daughter of Fred C Wilkins and Helen M Towne, and she was born in Michigan. Children are not noted. I don't know if this helps you or not. Best of luck!

RE: Houghton family
My pleasure. I want to let you know that these Houghtons are actually buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Wellington.

I was told that many years ago alot of the bodies from the "old cemetery" were moved to Greenwood and actually, only the bodies and not the stones were moved. I don't know if that is actually true, but these Houghtons are at Greenwood Cemetery along with other Houghtons.

If there are any more you would like photos of, please let me know as it is just down the street from my house.

Thanx again for your efforts and interest.

Zephaniah Knapp Grave Posting
Hi, Just thought I'd share some info to your Zephaniah Knapp posting for Marcy Cemetery. This is also called the Methodist Cemetery for Duryea, Luzerne Co., PA. Zephaniah Knapp's (who is a Revolutionary War soldier) son, Joseph Knapp(an 1812 soldier)is buried in Marcy as well and the John Knapp you have listed is Joseph Knapp's son. Zephaniah Knapp was one of the first postal riders for the Wyoming Valley and his son, Joseph's hunting journal entitled "The Leather Shirt" is held by the historical society there. Just across from John Knapp is a headstone for my great, great grandfather, Peter Knapp and his wife Amanda(Knecht)Knapp. At this point, I don't know how Peter is related to these other Knapps but feel there must be some connection to be buried in such close proximity. When I visited Marcy Cemetery was told by the caretaker that most of the records for the church & cemetery had burned back in the mid-90's. Will welcome hearing from anyone researching Peter Knapp family.
