Maj. Miner Owen - Sheffield
The note from the Sheffield Historical Society must refer to the War of 1812. Regular American soldiers in the Rev War didn't have uniforms (or much else).

Also, Owen was 10 to 15 years old during most of the Rev War and wouldn't have been married - let alone being called an "old fool" by his loving wife.

Siblings of Asa White
Sherry, I was fascinated by your account of Asa White (1820-1880), a pioneer settler who died in Blue Earth Co., MN. His father, Ezra White (1772-1848), was married to Lydia Evans, from Bainbridge, Chenango, Co., NY. Lydia was the daughter of (Major)Henry Evans, a Rev. War veteran and a "Vermont Sufferer" who settled in Bainbridge, NY after the war. Chenango Co. was where "Vermont Sufferers" were granted land after being dispossessed in Vermont over a dispute between Vermont and NY.
In your article you stated that Asa was "the 9th of 10 children". Do you know the names of any of his siblings and where they resided? I think that one of them may have been one of my ancestors. I have White family roots in Bainbridge, NY from the late 1700's and/or early 1800's.
According to family notes there was a Dr. Asa White (abt 1772-1819)living in the Bainbridge area. (This Asa was born about the same time as Ezra White---any connection?)He was married to Sarah Corbin (1774-1846). He was also a "Vermont Sufferer". They had a son, Dr. Devillo White (1801-1880's or later).Some of these people lived Sherburne, a community nearby to Bainbridge.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Thank you, Sherry. William Fields, buried in Union Cemetery, St. Clair, MN (Blue Earth Cty) is the father of my great-grandmother, Mary Fields Lynch. I went to the cemetery and saw the monument has fallen over. Who would I contact about repair? Do you know where Sara Backner, William's wife is buried? Same place? If so, I would appreciate the information. I really could not read all the writing on the tomb stone as the years have worn away the writing.
I have looked high and low for a death date for William and Sara but have not been able to find them.
Thank you!

RE: Fisher Family Burials - Corder Cemetery
Sherry, I'm not a Fisher nor do I know of anyone. Both of my parents families lived in Decatur and Wayne Counties. I'll will copy your request to see if any of my cousins live in the area if they know of any Fisher's that are living there.

RE: Hilton Family in McPherson-Union Cemetery
Thanks for your offer to copy pages of the Hilton book, but I am not related to them. One of my Cummins cousins married Frank, a son of Augustus Hilton. Frank and Daisy are buried somewhere in another cemetery.....

RE: So happy to meet you.
I am not aware of a Methodist church in the area, but then it may no longer exist either.

RE: So happy to meet you.
What I am using now are records that were put together for the county, I have no idea to which person you are wanting, as far as the McWilkins/Wilkins, per the records that I have, all are McWilkins except for Jemima and there is an extra note also know as Wilkins, I tried searching for him in the Civil War records but did not find anything.
Glad to have you back!!

Jemima Truitt McWilkins aka Wilkins
Jemima Truitt McWilkins aka Wilkins / 94241226
I have these Church Records listings with husband and many children, from what I have, I have no idea the correct name but hers in the only one that shows "Wilkins" as well as "McWilkins", I would really appreciate if you could take the time to check this, please??

RE: Mary Parthena Tillotson Matteson
Decorah is named after the Winnebago Tribe of Spoon Decorah. There is a Reundevoux in Sept at Ft Atkinson where the Winnebago tribes had been moved to in the 1830's and then moved to Blue Earth for One in MN. The Fort is very interesting as it has many artifacts in a small museum nearby in the town and at the Fort.

I went to McPherson Union Cemetery in St. Clair, MN to photograph your Matteson graves. I am sorry to say it is one of the most run-down cemeteries I have ever seen (and I've seen a LOT!) The Matteson stones are next to a tree that has grown up and pushed them aside. Albert's stone was deeply buried in the sod. Fortunately I had some gardening tools in my car and I cleared away the overgrowth. Frank/Ady stone had fallen face down. I lifted it up and leaned it against the tree to photograph it. Mary was no where to be seen. I think the broken rocks behind Frank's stone might be hers. Just wanted you to know I gave it my best shot!

RE: Mildred I. Losey Truitt
Hi Sherry,
With a name like Losey, we are all related to each other, Mildred is a distant cousin to me.
Yes I would like to have Mildred transfer to me, and I will update their information.
Thank you very much for your time.

RE: Joseph Huggins - Hewins Cem.
Burrill, Burrell, Burrall--all show up on the records. Abraham Burrell and Rebeckah Huggins headstones are the same design even--Joseph, Jerusha and Hannah are all later and an entirely different look to them.

RE: Joseph Huggins - Hewins Cem.
There is a headstone for Rebeckah along in the same line with Joseph and both his other wives but it is in very poor condition (being the oldest in the group). There is a memorial stone for her father Abraham Burrill right behind them.

RE: Joseph Huggins - Hewins Cem.
I'd taken it quite a while ago and just noticed today that you were looking for one. The wives stones aren't in nearly as good shape especially Rebeckah (Burrill) his first wife.
