RE: Christopher Allmy
I don't recall this additional question. Need more detail.

RE: Christopher Allmy
The Christopher Almy referred to is my ancestor through son William. I'm the one who provided Nareen with the will record of Christopher included in Christopher's Find A Grave memorial. Contrary to the frequent claim, there is no document stating, or inferring otherwise, that Avis (purportedly Almy) Stanton was Christopher's daughter and the sister of William.

Anna Jenkins Havens
Thanks for the information. It looks like she might be related to you, whereas she is not (as far as I know) related to me. Would you like me to transfer her memorial to you and then you can add what ever you like?

(After I read Catherine's fascinating diary I was inspired to connect and create missing memorials for her relations. I even hoped that I might be able to photograph the graves in the Marble Cemetery that she mentions as containing the remains of 3 little girls, 2 of whom were supposedly named after Anna Jenkins Havens, but the folks who open that cemetery--only a few times a year since it's a very small plot in downtown Manhattan--said they are not sure which vault their remains are in. I thought Vault 9 because it is listed on their website as containing "3 Children" interred before 1845 and once containing some adults with the last name Webb who were removed in 1845 (Catherine's own mother's maiden name was Webb) but those who caretake that cemetery said they could not confirm that the "3 Children" are the sisters of Catherine).

You are correct about the dates. Someone sent me the link last week and I accepted it without looking at the dates. Thanks!

Jessie O Converse-Pray/ Poplar Hill Cemetery
Hi David!

First let me say how very much I appreciate all the work with the Pray Family at Poplar and the Converse connections. I noticed on the photo of Ephraim and Jessie's marker they have a daughter Edith S(1885-1889) and Ephraim's second wife, Elizabeth but they have no Memorials. I thought, since you have the Memorials you would like to create their memorials too. I have the 1880 census, showing Ephraim had not yet married Jessie and the 1900 census with him and Elizabeth and their son George. If you would like me to send those to you, you can reach me at and I will be most happy to send them to you. I am a descendant of the Converse Family through my mother but, have a lot on my plate so, am not requesting any transfers. I am happy just to find family members.

Most sincerely,
Claire Zahn

RE: Willard/McKnight
I am a VT SAR member and I work with our historian, Herman Charlie Brown, who manages the vtssar findagrave memorials. I have forwarded your questions to him. The SAR & DAR have information records of all known AR war veterans. They are always adding new information and new veterans to the db. Our historian has access to this db information plus he also researches the veterans family & history available online. We will check out the info you gave us about the possibly Patriots in the Short Cemetery.

FYI: Although born in East Montpelier, I grew up in Maple Corner, Calais, and have many related family members in that area.

The vtssar findagrave link is: page=mr&MRid=47884768

Hope this helps !

RE: Willard/McKnight
Thanks for the info. Here's what I have.
Laura Ann McKnight married Kelso Gray 27 Dec 1835, Montpelier, Washington, Vermont.
They had 4 children; Lucy A, Abby S, Mary J, & Otis.
Her parents are Elijah McKnight, b: 1782, Mass.
Polly Allen, b: 26 Apr 1783, Mass.

I do have the Henry D. Willard line info from Ancestry, However I have not proved his family line to the Willard genealogy.

RE: Calais/E. Montpelier research
Regarding Henry D. Willard, it is noted that he is the son of Jonathan Hubbard Willard, Sr. and Abigail Johnson, however I have no record of that, not to say he was not a son.
I do have all the lineage of Jonathan Hubbard Willard, Sr. and he is my 4th cousin 5x.

RE: Calais/E. Montpelier research
Hi David,

This Henry Willard is not in my lineage and I have no record of Sarah McKnight. I do have a Laura Ann McKnight who is a cousin 2x married to a Kelso Gray. Do you know of Henry's lineage? I do not find a grave for him in Washington Co. VT
I am my family genealogist and would be very interested in of Henry's family line. I couldn't find him in my db or in my reference books. If you have more info please email me and I will research this further.
Best regards, Chuck

Thank you for the information from her death record. I didn't have the names of her parents. Upon further research I strongly believe the Isaac in short cemetery is her father and will link them shortly. Thank you!

RE: Jenkins Memorials
BTW, Emmeline and William Bunker Jenkins had a third child, a son, William who died before he was 3. I have that information in the documents, Emmeline Danforth signs an affidavit indicating that she is the sole survivor, the others being unmarried and deceased....

RE: Jenkins Memorials
David, WOW! Thank you. I have been having such a hard time confirming Bunker as Mary's last name. My grandmother (Siedenburg-Starr)put that name down in the genealogy she compiled, but I haven't been able to confirm it. And I assumed it was Bunker based on William Bunker Jenkins, but couldn't 100% confirm it.

So, are you a direct descendent of one of those brothers? I am trying to build out the Young family and having trouble there, too.

Thanks for you help, (cousin?)

RE: Capt. Gamaliel Fuller
Hello David,

I am trying to remember. I found one captain that was killed in Africa while slave trading. I never found out if he was killed by the Africans or if there was a mutiny and if his body was brought back home but I doubt it. I think I posted that info on his site but this is a possible avenue for Gamaliel also.

Fuller is in my distant lineage also, somehow, via marriage/marriages.

Good luck with your searches. I am going to search for real treasure now at a 1700/1800's location which will remain a secret.

RE: Capt. Gamaliel Fuller

I descend from four separate New England Fullers that arrived between 1620 and 1645. My effort regarding the respective lineal descendants is to separate them as the lines all ended up in the early 1700s at greater Windham, Conn. with some unrecognized cross-over marriages.

I created the additional memorials solely to prevent someone pre-empting their creation then refusing to transfer. While I applaud those who took the time to create and photo associated gravestones, I object to the few who consider their effort to be personal property and no genealogical relation to the people they created memorials for. I have no problem transferring to you if so desired. The primary focus being to assemble the resulting lineal family(ies) into a coherent whole.

I would appreciate you emailing me what details you have regarding the Fullers you are interested in so I can track them. It appears I have access to better primary data sources than you.

Elihu Taber
Ah, he may not have been a Quaker though many many Tabers were, cousins, uncles... I am not familiar with his family.

Ferrisburgh was not in NY but part of the meeting of NY - NY settled first (Nine Partners area) then they sent meetings into Vermont. Montpelior area would probably have been in a New England meeting oversight, so not in these records. If he were a Quaker.

I am not sure how far west into NY they go, mostly along the Champlain area.

NY Meeting Records
Another great resource is the Hazard Index at Swarthmore:

New York Meeting records. It has some of the meetings in western Vermont and Farnham in Quebec, associated with the NY Yearly Meeting.

I find that the Tabers are sometimes Tabor, Tabar, Tabour. My Tabors were in Starksboro and Lincoln mostly, and were often in the outs with the NYYM - not all records are there.

Unfortunately these records do not include Montpelior but perhaps you will find someone else in here that you are looking for.

No I dont. I just found Russel Taber's "Genealogy of the Taber Family" online and was searching through it...1893:

RE: Message to Elizabeth
Hi David,

Yes. Edmond Freeman & his wife Sarah (Mayo) are my 7th great grandparents. So their daughter Thankful & her husband Jonathan Snow are my 6th great grandparents. To the best of my knowledge they had seven children. Their son Mark Snow was my 5th great grandfather. He marr. Hannah Sears and their son Jonathan & his wife Lydia (Hammett) ended up in Montpelier. I believe they had twelve children: Hannah, Polly, Charity, Barnabas, Abner, Mark, Avis, Horace, Elias, Nancy, Alonzo, & my 3rd great grandfather Jonathan Marcus Snow. He marr. Hannah Vincent. They ended up in the midwest -- where I'm from originally. Hope this helps, if you have more questions just let me know. My mother knows much more & I could ask her if I don't know.

RE: Mrs Thankful Wing King Snow (Memorial # 104502073)
I believe I have gathered the information for the Rochester records and it could be an error on their paperwork but I have looked on Ancestry and the majority have her listed as a King. She must have married a Wing and then Snow.

Thank you for your input.
