RE: Hi Robin
I don't have a burial location for J L Sandlin, either. Here is what I know:
Born: 24 Feb 1830 in Blounts Ferry, Columbia, Florida and died 1893 in Columbia County, FL

He married Caroline E. Phelps on 4 Jun 1850 in Blounts Ferry, Columbia County, Florida

He married Lucy Lee on 16 January 1876 in Clay Landing, Lafayette County, Floirda

Lucy remarried William M. Peed and is buried in the Santa Fe Cemetery.

I cannot find James or Caroline's graves. He would have been my Great Great uncle. Thanks for writing.

Sandlin, Pattersons
I am so glad to meet you! Robert Sandlin was my 3rd great grandfather. I am descended from his daughter Elizabeth, who married James Jackson Knowles. James and Elizabeth's son, my great grandfather, married Virginia Adella Patterson, daughter of Nathaniel John Patterson and his second wife Mary Ann Brown (who was the sister of his first wife). Such great family history and such wonderful stories you have included in your entries. Just wanted to say hello to a new found cousin.

Thank you for sharing information
Some of my ancestors are Joseph Harris; General George Aldrich, Joshua Howe and Matthew Pratt.
You can see these people behind my great great grandfather Harrison Harris on my Ancestry tree. Harrison came from Ontario, Canada about 1865 to be a founder of Pelican Rapids, Otter Tail County, Minnesota.

RE: Oxford history
Great thanks John.

Oxford history
I just double checked the History of Oxford I found on line:

In the genealogy section under Amidown see Jeremiah. His son Isaac b. 1772 married Hannah dau. of Ebenezer Foster.

So this corroborates that it's not Hannah dau. of Timothy.

age difference
p.s. - Plus there is the fact that Isaac Amidon was born in 1772 and it is possible but unlikely that he married the Hannah Foster born in 1750 - 22 years older than he was.

RE: Hannah Foster Info
Hi John - thanks for getting back to me.

Here's what happened. Charles Baker originally created the memorial for Hannah (Foster) Amidon (1773-1840). Contributor ASB took the photo of her stone. She put a caption on the picture that you can read if you click on it. It reads "Stone identical & next to husband Isaac. Age 67 yrs legible at bottom."

He transferred the memorial to you. I'm not sure if you changed any of the info after acquiring it. But the current info is definitely incorrect.

If look at the vital records of Dudley, massachusetts to 1850 online at the link below:

You will see there were two Hannah Fosters born in Dudley:

First one was Hannah born March 18, 1750 to Timothy and Mary.

The other was Hannah born April 4, 1773 to Ebenezer and Mary. That is who this memorial is for when Charles Baker created it before he transferred it to you.

The 1st Hannah b. 1750 did marry Amos Hooker March 10, 1768 in Dudley as you can see in the Vital Records link I gave you.

The 2nd Hannah b. 1773 married Isaac Amidon, intentions filed in Dudley March 1, 1794.

If you click on the grave photo for Hannah on her memorial you can see contributor ASB typed a message saying "Stone identical & next to husband Isaac. Age 67 yrs legible at bottom."

The death record for Hannah Amidon is in the Vital Records link as well she died in 1840 and it says she was 67 years old to the day. And if she was 67 years old that would be 1773. Also on your memorial under Note is says "age 67yrs; wife of Isaac" So this cannot be the Hannah you think it is. Your Hannah was born in 1750 and her gravestone nor Amos Hooker's have not been found yet.

I hope this helps and I hope you can fix it for me. The Hooker part of her name should be deleted and her birth date should be April 4, 1773.

Thanks so much. Sorry about the long message.

Timothy Foster, Find A Grave # 93902412
How great to know that history about the Summerall cemetery and thank you for passing it on to me.

As for being related, one never knows down the road; however, I believe Timothy would be called a cousin-in-law to me. Here is how I see the picture.

1) Abijah 'Habijah' Foster, born Ipswich, MA, 1707 = 2nd cousin 7x removed

2) (son) Samuel Foster, born 1742 New Ipswich, NH = 3rd cousin 6x removed

married Tabitha Hodgkins, born 1745 Hillsborough Co NH, married in New Ipswich, NH, 24 Oct 1764.

Samuel Foster died 01 Oct 1778 in Hartford, CT.

Per a letter found in his pension file, Tabitha remarried 31 Dec 1789, to Jonathan Onion (III), in Shrewsbury, Rutland, VT.

Jonathan Onion (III) born 1747 MA is son of Jonathan Onion Jr. and Sarah May.

Sarah May is sister to Mary 'Molly' May (born 1719) who married Ensign Timothy Foster Sr. (born 1715).

The round-about way Ancestry explains their relationship of me to Ensign Foster of: husband of aunt of husband of wife of 3rd cousin 6x removed !

You are more than welcome to your great-grandfather's memorial. I am glad that it was there for you. MHN

RE: Callie Parker
"It is this rule( I am referring too that falls within the rules and since,Callie Stuart Parker is my Great Great Granndmother."

Great-great-grandparents are 5th generation

1. Yourself, siblings
2, parent
3 Grandparents
4. Great-grandparents
5. g-g great grandparents and so on

As soon as I get the request for your great-grandfather I will transfer to you.

Callie Parker
You did not ask for a transfer of Feddy only that I change his name. I did this immediately. As he is your great-grandfather, I will transfer him to you if you use the edit tab and request. I have never refused a transfer within the guidelines. 2nd great-grandparents are not in the guidelines and I do know the four-generation rule. Siblings, Parents, Grandparents and Great-Grandparents.
