RE: Nathan Whitney & Nancy Hay
That was a quick response! I am not a descendant of your Whitney ancestors. I'm' just working on Winchendon families and noticed you added them recently to New Boston Cem. which I photographed a few years ago. I'm working on ridding the system of duplicates as well. Hopefully someone will photograph Nathan's and Nancy's stones for you one day.

Take care,

RE: Oscar Harvey- your requested edit
Just guessing, based on info provided on his memorial. I figure a near miss is better than nothing at all. Mostly for searching purposes, and helps not having to open the memorial when there are a lot of results.

RE: Wife of Ebenezer Norton
Hi Sunset! I hope you're doing ok. :) Let's put this 'Elizabeth' suggestion the back burner for now, can we?

I've got some other research I kinda need to squeeze in before i can get back to this. I surely want to see what prompted me to suggest this, tho. :)

I would say . . . maybe by the end of summer? I should be able to put 2plus2 together for this. I humbly apologize for not having this on my fingertips for analysis when i made my suggestion.

I believe I was relying on the fact that this was all in the Old Burying Grnd (GR I) per pg 52 . . . but I didn't catch the Eb "Junior' part.

Thanks for the followup; Let's chit-chat later re this. :):)

RE: Wife of Ebenezer Norton
Hi Sunset!!

Letsee . . . this'll take a cpl days. :) Note that the pg 52 ref is for an Eb. JUNior; according to findagrave, the gravestone is marked Eb "Esq" . . . which (if I'm not mistaken) is his pop. :)

But I'll have to spread my stuff out, & check my notes. :) I think it was in Banks Hx MV - vol 3 that I discovered all this.

The dates are the key as you suggest. :)

RE: Wife of Ebenezer Norton
Hi Sunset!!

I hope you're doing ok. :) mmm . . . what caught my eye is that this grave site is right next to Ebenezer . . . who was married to an Elizabeth, who had a family; which included a male child named Elijah whom i was researching.

I have to check my notes for dates & stuff. . .but on pg 52 of VR of Edagartown(NEHGS 1906) you'll see a reference to these folks.

The "GRI" notation there refers to: "gravestone record, Old Burying Ground".

Sooooooo . . . I'm assuming this is most probably Ebenzer's wife, Elizabeth. :)

Brian Hunt
Hunt Family
Hi name is Brian Hunt. I saw you posted Ephraim is your 10th great grandfather, he is my 9th. How are you related? His son Ephraim Jr is my 8th great grandfather. I know Ephraim Sr was married twice. Had 6 kids with the two diff wifes. He worked as a shipwrecker. He came to the new world in 1639 with his dad Enoch Hunt Jr. His dad went back to England for some reason. I havent found out why yet.I have info on Ephraim Sr's dad and grandfather which is the farthest I go back in the family.

I can't even remember the correction to be honest, but I regularly cruise through Find A Grave and make corrections and connections when I can find them. (Like I have nothing else to do with my time!)

RE: Dr. John F. Hay
Many thanks. I am delighted to hear that John F. Hay's portrait has been resurrected (it is Easter after all!). That would be great to see when it is completed. I also have Hay's on my Mother's side. Would love to see if I can connect them! Could well be we are related. Both the Nichols and the Kimball's go back to the early 1600's in Massachusetts.
Many thanks, again.

thank you so much for adding my great uncle to Find A Grave and thanks for the photo of the cemetery. Would you know how I might find out who took charge of his burial? I live in Europe so I can't get access to the cemetery.

John B. Collins
Hi Sunset; have you had any luck finding the burial location for John? You mentioned the death certificate for him, but I cannot find it on Ancestry. Does it mention his parents? Give me a shout by email, or you can reach me through the memorial of Barnard Collins (1776-1839). Warmest regards-- Stan

Thank you for all that additional information! I've printed out the pics and some other info. and will try to look again soon. It's 14 degrees with a windchill factor of -6 degrees today, so it might be a little while lol. I'll let you know if I find it :)

RE: Harriet MacLeod
You're very welcome! I've checked a couple of times and even with a map printed out at the cemetery kiosk, I've been unable to find anything. I'm going to try one more time - I try to give it 3x before I give up :) I'll let you know if I find anything this last time.
Happy Thanksgiving!

RE: Derby-Whitney photos
Hello Sunset!

We have *lots* of photos of the Derbys and will be delighted to share them. Pics. of Nathan, Adell, Mary Eveleth Derby, Carrol Whitney, Robert and Norman Whitney. It would be best to send the images as attachments to you.

Please contact us at my e-mail address:

Ruth and my wife's grandmother lived around the corner from each other in Somerville. Carrol Whitney lived about a five minute walk down Clarendon Hill. We have a photo of Ruth and baby Norman at Oak Bluffs in 1922. Also a cute pic of Robert and Norman at Norembega Park in Waltham in 1923. So glad to have found a Derby-Whitney descendant!

All best regards,

RE: Gen. Asa Bacon Carey
They were all living together in Memphis, TN in 1910; M L Walker, Edith C Walker, A B Carey and Laura M Carey.

Asa Bacon Carey died 4 Apr 1912 in Orlando, FL.

Laura M Colby is back in Tisbury, MA in 1920

I would assume they brought A B Carey to Tisbury and buried him with the rest of the family.
