RE: #71908015
Unfortunately, no. In the 1630s Texel was a port on the outer northwest barrier island of the Netherlands, used by those sailing from Scandanavia to England and North America. In 1639 my namesake Dutch immigrant sailed from Texel aboard a Swedish ship with the first group of Swedes to settle Christiana, now Wilmington, Delaware. Texel Ensworth early caught my eye when researching my ancestral family of early Hartford, Conn.

For whatever its worth, due to the later multiple misspellings of his given name after he left Hartford for Canterbury, Conn., probably due to his ancent I personally think Texel was either a Dutchman, of an English father and Dutch mother, or of English parents who grew up in the Netherlands, was bi-linqual but spoke only broken Dutch and broken English.

No, don't need that. The memorial you created for the only Tyxhall Ensworth recorded at Cleaveland Cemetery at Canterbury, who in the 1930ish inventory of that cemetery had no other data than his name, was likely of the immigrant Texel (aka Tyxhall, Tixhall, Tixwell) Ensworth (aka Ainsworth) who died of record at Canterbury in 1712. He was the patriarch of the Ensworth family at Canterbury and the paternal grandfather of the person you have assumed to be the person the gravestone record refers to. Texel's estate, who apparently died without a known will, was probated at the Windham Probate District at Willimantic, a copy of which record I have.

That neither Tyxhall,3 (John,2 Texel,1) Ensworth, his wife Jerusha Fitch (whose family lines I am well aware of), nor any of their children appear with gravestone records at Canterbury is highly suggestive that the family of Tyxhall and Jerusha are interred other than at the Cleaveland cemetery at Canterbury.

Accordingly, I would greatly appreciate if you would consider transferring the related memorial to me so I can add related bio material for the immigrant, his probate record and summarize his children.

RE: Jackie Knight
I am not related to the Knights but I knew many of them. It amazes me that I was from the community where the Jack (Jackie) Knight cemetery is located and never knew it was there. I did visit the Mount Olive Cemetery as a young person because there was a road there back then. I was doing a photo for a lady in Nebraska for one of her long ago kin folks and was able to connect her to a family she never knew existed. In that process I got the landowner, a childhood friend, to take me to the cemetery, in that process he showed me the Jackie Knight Cemetery and told me that Ethel Knight had done the monument. Ethel wrote the 'Echo of the Black Horn'
But I also had been reading 'The State of Jones' which is a more recent book and seems to be more factual. Both are basically about Knewt Knight a very interesting character. I knew many of his offspring. The later book is available on line if you are interested. People in the Jack Knight and Knight Cemetery in Covington county, as well as many other cemeteries were related to him.

I knew most of Ethel Knights family and was just curious if you were from this area. Ethel was the one that placed the memorial stone and the flag pole in the Jack Knight (Jones County MS). I recently visited that cemetery when I was looking for the Mount Olive (also located near Jack Knight Cemetery) Wish so much that I had taken photos there but my camera was acting up. So I only got what I went for and that was the memorial of where they moved most of the Hebron Lodge graves when Hy 84 was four laned ( )
If you knew the Ethel Knight group would love to hear from you (

RE: Joseph H. Bacon
No leave them as separate memorials. I will contact Find A Grave and ask them to remove the listing for "North Burial" in Providence because it is the same as "North Burial Ground" in Providence. I just didn't want someone to inadverently add other memorials to the "North Burial" cemetery listing.
So how many great grandfathers is Lt. Bacon to you? Do you know how to add relationship links? That will only show on a memorial you created. If you go to your grandfather Bacon's memorial on findagrave and write down the memorial number then go to your father's memorial. Click on add relationship link and type in the memorial number of your grandfather. After you save it, he will show as a link on your father's memorial AND your father will show up as a child link on your grandfather's memorial. Great feature when a line is scattered amongst different cemeteries.
You can go back into the "add relationships" area at any time and add mother or spouse or correct an error.
