Colburn/Coburn Family

I notice that you posted both Benjamin Colburn's here on F.A.G. and they are my ancestors. I was wondering how much information you have on the Coburn/Colburn family? How are you related? Would you be willing to share any information?

Rice County KS. Research
84870043 Thomas Dow
In searching out headstone for a many times Great Aunt of mine "Dorcas Kimball", I found this and wondered, could this be her husband? Sure enough, I did the research and THEY ARE husband and wife.

Dorcas Kimball was born about 1649 to Henry Kimball and Mary Wyatt in Ipswich,Essex,Ma. She married Thomas Dow Dec.1,1668. I'm about to add their children to my files from the book listed below.

In the online book; "The Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, Massachusetts: With Some Related....
Just type the couples names into the search bar and click "books", it'll come up in the list. Bottom of page 136 and continues onto page 137.

Please add her to his memorial!

Harriet Dow

I updated Harriet's vital information via the fill-in form. I was doing a lot of research on my Dow family and had some luck with researching papers from the area. I came across her obit (transcribed) and it corresponds with my census and other vital records data.

I'd be happy to chat with you further about the Dow family, as my line comes from the Canterbury/Dow Settlement region in N.B. and ventured south to Wisconsin and Maine.

Hope this helps! :)

Joiner / Joyner clans
Hi Jay -- I thought I would post a message on Find A Grave with what I found -- you & Sue (my sister) may have already found this but in case other family members are also 'stumped' I found where several of the Joiner / Joyner clan are buried.

Virgil Rural Cemetery (see Find A Grave Cemetery listing)

Virgil Rural Cemetery records can be found at

Catharine Lewis Joiner is listed as Catherine (I've let the Contributor know and she's working on the duplications). She's done an amazing job entering!

Other family links on the same site & Cemetery several with headstone photos for:

Baker, Beardsley, Canedy, Carpenter, Hall, Hutchings, Joiner, Joyner, Lewis, Weeks and several others.

Nice to connect with another family member on the Joiner/Joyner side!

*Sue -- we have them entered as Joyner and now we know which Cemetery many rest in.

RE: Dow family
Hi Sue - nice to hear from a Dow cousin! My 4th great grandmother was Ruth Dow, daughter of Enoch & Ruth Morton Dow. I'm always looking for more connections!

All the best,

Hi Sue
I was happy to see your contributions to the Joyner group on findagrave.
I live in Minneapolis. My aunt and I have done lots of research. I am creating a table of the hundreds of my ancestors to keep track of the located graves.

One of my lines is Albert K., Albert A., Herbert S., Albert, Horace, John, John, WIlliam Edward, etc.

Catharine Lewis has been a brick wall for us.
Do you know anything about her parents?

Headstone for M. Rybchuk
Thx for taking the time to capture and post these important family history pieces. This particular headstone is my maternal grandfather's. My mother had only seen it once, as her father died when she was only 5 years old, and the last time she was in Regina to search for it in the cemetery she wasn't able to find it. I've sent the link to this page to her now, and she's also very appreciative.

Thank you, again.
