RE: Elizabeth SULLIVAN Collette Miller
Oh my gosh! I did not see your memorial until after I responded to you. You know who Betty married! I found a Betty J. Collette alive in Michigan but that can't be here since she is married. Wow! You are good! Many thanks!

RE: Elizabeth SULLIVAN Collette Miller
I'm not directly related but my husband is. My husband's mother is a Collette. Paul Elior Collette is my husband's maternal grandfather. I knew he first married Elizabeth S. but I didn't find out what her maiden name was until last night. Sullivan. I was told that she married a Miller who owned a store and that she had a daughter by Paul Collette named Betty. Betty is still alive in Lansing, Michigan, I believe. Anyway, FYI, her birth record below.

Tennessee, Delayed Birth Records, 1869-1909 about Estella Elizabeth Sullivon
Name: Estella Elizabeth Sullivon
Gender: Female
Birth Date: 28 Oct 1905
Birth Place: Graysville, Rhea
Father: William Franklin Sullivon
Mother: Elizabeth Carpenter

She went by Elizabeth and used Estella as her middle name. She shows up as Estelle on one census record only. I don't know when they got married but going by the 1930 census, and the ages when they were first married, I calculate 1922. She was only 16 when they got married. Very young. She was working at the Miller store and that is where she met Felix. The rest is history. My father in law said she was drop dead gorgeous. I would LOVE it if someone found a portrait of her.

I have a tree on Someone emailed me about this line so it prompted me to get back on it. If you have any more questions, you can email me at

Birth / death dates
Hi: on the memorials of Isaac Scott Welch (71941542) and his wife, Jean Gallaway Welch ( 71941659), you have mistakenly placed their birth dates and info. into the death date slot. They are probably still living. Thanks, Tom

Hi Again, I posted the pics I took to your memorials. Myrtle's dates are on the headstone. You can also do a google search for California death records (I use and possibly you could get more information on Myrtle. Good luck!

Gorlinski transfers

Transferred the three memorials I created and managed; Joseph, Valentine and one of their sons. Primary reason for latter, despite not knowing where he's buried, was to allow me to make connection between Joseph and his grandson, Shirley.

My input about Valentine's burial location which is still reflected in her memorial was based on info in her obit which apparently was accurate when she died since the Catholic cemetery didn't exist. Didn't see any method to reflect her re-interment in the Catholic cemetery other than deleting the current memorial and then creating a new one with the same data except the burial revision. Logic would indicate there's a better way, but.................. Will leave it up to you to handle the update however you prefer.

RE: Valentine Gorlinski memorial #134307425

I assume you're familiar with the "Polish-American" work of Edward Pinkowski at

If not he has a detailed write up for Major Joseph and Valentine Gorlinski

and one of their grandsons, Colonel Joseph Shirley Gorlinski

Since I'm not related to the Gorlinski's my interest in their genealogy largely stems from some work I've done about a "historic families" from my hometown, Stockton, CA. One of these are the Oullahan's (again no relationship). In reviewing some local history I found that they played a significant part in the early politics of the city as well as the State. Of particular interest was a mention of the Stockton visit of General/President US Grant that apparently was prompted because Grant's wife Julia Boggs (Dent) had a brother Lewis Dent who lived in Stockton. Lewis was married to an Alice (Baine) who had a sister Julia who was the wife of an Oullahan.

If you're familiar with Civil War history, one reason Grant became head of the Union Army was his success in taking Vicksburg, MS after a siege. As indicated in the write-up for Major Gorlinski, he performed some mapping of Confederate works that I suspect were used as part of the Union bombardment strategy. I haven't seen any evidence that indicates they did, but I don't think it would be much of a stretch that Grant and Gorlinski met during the siege and a "stranger than fiction" that they were subsequently related (if somewhat remotely).

As far as handling the Find A Grave booking, from your write-up I take it you you have a greater interest in the family than I do. Consequently, I'll be happy to turn management of the memorial to you and you can make whatever mods are appropriate. Need to confirm your # is 47514355.


Vern D

BTW: In case your interested in what I've done in trying to sort out the relationships and I didn't pass it on, my Rootsweb World Connect DB name for the family is Oullahan-1. (I use the same name from update to update)

Welch family
I was wondering what information you might have on Elizabeth Welch and Theophilus C. Carlton and how you are related to them. I am their third great grandson through their daughter Lucy. Everyone who knew Lucy, including my grandpa and his first cousin who was raised by her, swears she was native american. Both of her sons, one of which was my great grandfather, said this as well. I have a picture of her with her sons and husband. She definitely looks like an indian.

RE: Widney Home in Ireland
I have a copy of Beulah's book but haven't looked at it in years. She and I corresponded at length in the 1980s and 90s. The thing that's been standing in the way of those researching Widney origins is Dr. George Linn's assumption that, if "Colonel Widney" fought for William of Orange at the Battle of the Boyne (as one of his elders told him), then he must have been Dutch. What Dr. Linn apparently did not know is that fighting for William at the Boyne were not only his own Dutch army but also regiments of Scots, Ulster Scots, and Welsh.

As you probably know, Beulah recognized that a variant spelling of Widney in Ireland was Woodney. One of the notable things discovered in my research is that, 37 years before the Battle of the Boyne, there was a Lieutenant Woodney among Scots Presbyterian landholders of Lecale, County Down [The Anglo-Norman Families of Lecale in the County of Down, J.W.H., Ulster Journal of Archaeology, Vol. I, Belfast (1853), p. 98].

When you have time, I think you'll find my article on the Widney/Woodney/Udny family in Ireland enlightening.

Loretta Lynn Layman
Widney Home in Ireland
It turns out the Widneys lived in Killymurry, County Monaghan at least as early as 1713 and continuing until 1784, when James sold his interest in Killymurry the very year he left for America. It appears further that the Widney name was a corruption of the Scottish name Udny, which is pronounced Widney by local Scots. The Scottish Captain Oliver Udny received a grant of land in Ulster roughly 70 years before the Battle of the Boyne, and in County Cran rather than Tyrone. Cran shares part of its border with County Monaghan. You might be interested in my web page, which includes sources:

Grusch - St. Mary's Cemetery

Last summer I took some photos at St. Mary's Cemetery on Mt. Troy in Pittsburgh, PA. I am just beginning to post them and saw that you had a request for Clara Grusch. Unfortunately, I don't see a photo for her in my batch of photos. However, I do have a group shot that shows the graves of Augustus and Elizabeth Grusch near graves of Bopp, Buckalew, and Aulbach. It may just be random proximity, but I thought I'd ask if your Grusch family had any ties to the nearby families.

Best regards,
