RE: Whorf grave Winthrop St. Cemetery Provincetown
Hi Joe: That's so interesting! I, too, am the 6th great grand-daughter of John and Sarah, descended through John, John, John, Henry, Isaiah, Harry and John, my grandfather. I have been trying for a while to connect that first John and Sarah to earlier generations of Whorfs but have had no luck. Also, I have not been able to locate anything about the first John Whorf. We know that he was married to Sarah because her headstone says so, but I've not been able to find a death record for him. Do you think that your family has any documentation that they might be wiling to share? Thanks for posting the grave on Find a Grave. Next time I am down there I will take a picture of the headstone which is still very legible. Best wishes, Amy

Whorf grave Winthrop St. Cemetery Provincetown
Hi Joe: I see that last year you submitted information for a John and Sarah Whorf/Wharff, buried in the Winthrop Street Cemetery in Provincetown. I am aware of the headstone for Sarah Wharfe which refers to her as the wife of John, but didn't have any information about John (1725-1790). Might I ask where you found the family information and his dates? Thanks very much for sharing what you might have.

RE: Helen Marie Skillings
Sure, I understand. Let me know when/if you can send along any source reference, and I would be happy to do so.

RE: Helen Marie Skillings
Sure; understood.

My question, though, is about the SOURCE of the information you are relaying to me. For example, the 1900 Gray census lists a birth date for Helen of Mar 1835, but the gravestone says she was b. 1836. Which is correct? Are there any primary records you can point me to where I can verify the info before posting it?

I have no problem with the census info... it is more about her date of birth and parentage. Where did you find this info?

Sorry to be a stickler for details, but once it is posted here on Find a Grave, many researchers will rely upon these details as "fact". I like to be reasonably sure the details are correct before posting.

RE: Helen Marie Skillings

The note I sent with the decline status requested source information for the couple of edits I declined, since the info conflicted with what was on the stone and I couldn't locate solid documentation online.

As to the name, I have seen family members go by Skillin, Skilling, and Skillings even from one generation to another, so it is difficult to determine which one might be "correct" for any individual. Without source info, I hesitate to change the record established at the time of their death (when the inscriptions were carved).

Please message me with any additional detail you might be able to provide.

Before I make the additions to this memorial, I would like to know the source. Have been burned by adding information without proof it is accurate.

RE: 151072406

I also have some O'Briens, but could not see that they are related to yours...
Thanks for the help on Sproul.

Added by history4sure on Feb 24, 2016 11:21 AM

Hi Joseph:

Regarding your edit on James Sproul - you suggest he is titled the III.

I really appreciate your help and always like to accept edits.

I have searched, it seems, "forever" and never found a father for him, let alone been able to go back 2 more generations...could you please send any vital data you have found on a father & grandfather named James?.... and I will add it to his bio.

Thanks so much for this help.

Cheers~ Shirleen

Hi Joseph: Inasmuch as I don't understand your request since all the chidren,except W.Henry, are already attached. I would gladly transfer the memorial to you for your updating. I did not enter the Bio info and don't know who did. Have a good day.

Thank you, Joseph, for the information on the "Trent" birth place of Robert Adams, Ye 1st.

The findagrave location options do not include Trent in the Somerset and the District is the closest option.

Thanks, Cheers ~ Shirleen

Abraham Adams FAG #67422320
Dear Joseph,

I now see that the death date does fit his son. I checked this last night but being tired got confused, and didn't think your bio applied to his son Abraham. Many thanks for correcting me. I've posted your bio on Abraham, Jr.'s Ancestry page and listed you as the source. Is there any other source I should acknowledge?

Happy Family Sleuthing,

Abraham Adams FAG #67422320
Dear Joseph,

The bio that you sent about an Abraham Adams who died in Byfield in 1763, is a completely different Abraham Adams, a much younger one.

My Abraham was born in 1639 and died in 1714, way before yours.

Adams is a very common name in Colonial Massachusetts.

Peter Worden/Ellen Winslow
You have Ellen Winslow listed as a daughter of Peter Worden. Do you have any evidence to support this? From what I've seen, this is a contested relationship, and I'd love to see it proven.
