RE: Capt. Benjamin L'Hommedieu
Thank you for updating the memorial for Benjamin. His father is my 7th great grandfather. So, this makes Capt. Benjamin L'Hommedieu my 6th great grand uncle. Pretty far down the line, but I'd love to have the transfer to maintain. Thank you for the offer.
Regards,
Sharon

Additional John May
Forgot to add...

John May's only child by the widow Dwight, Catherine Pond May, married and moved to Pittsburg, PA. It is the only daughter of the widow Dwight by her 1st husband that I am tracing. But, Catherine Pond (May) Edwards may also figure into the picture as Pittsburgh is where her elder half-sister resided and raised a family of 13 children.

RE: Capt John May Sr. [62353505]
Joseph,

Thanks for the reply. In 2012 a religion professor published [short title] "The Notorious Elizabeth Tuttle...", who was my "crazy" 1670s ancestral grandmother of Hartford, Conn. However, the work opened pandora's box to the forgotten U.S. eugenics movement in the early 1900s. Elizabeth's grandson was the 18th century theologian Jonathan Edwards of Northampton, Mass. In 1900 the eugenics movement used the Jonathan Edwards descendant family as the shining example of everything that was good and wholesome in American society versus an anonymous made-up "Jukes" family that exhibited everything wrong with society. Unfortunately, in 1922 a pro-eugenics author attached all manner of people to the Edwards family. Elizabeth's daughter, my ancestor, is wrongfully claimed as the ancestress of two presidents and a then nationally-recognized sociologist, who were not of Edwards blood. I'm reverifying and desire to denounce the Edwards descent claim before the eugenics movement reappears. The U.S. eugenics movement was adopted then corrupted by Adolph Hitler ultimately leading to his intent to purify the German race and Nazi extermination of 6 mil Jews and the death of 100 mil people in WW II.

I'm not interested in history repeating itself, and the Edwards family used again for the same purpose.

The children of John May's 2nd wife, Margaret Dewitt, by her 1st husband, are descendants of Jonathan Edwards. My desire is to authenticate that descent down to a then nationally recognized America author Winston Churchill. Thus, the reason for my inquiry.

Capt John May Sr. [62353505]
Hello,

In the sketch you provided for this memorial you wrote:

"Dolly [Dorothy Arnold] died on 28 Jan. 1804. John Sr. remarried, 14 Nov. 1804, to Margaret (VanHorn) deWitt (a widow) of Milford, CT. Only one child, a daughter, issued from this marriage."

I would appreciate the source of the marriage date to 2nd wife Margaret (14 Nov. 1804) as I cannot find any such record of that date. John's 2nd wife was Margaret Dewitt, not Margaret (VanHorn) Dewitt, the widow of Dr. Maurice William Dwight. Margaret (VanHorn) Dewitt was Margaret (Dewitt) (Dwight) May's mother who died of record at Milford in 1793. The widow May married as her third husband [his 2nd wife] Reuben Cone at Haddam, Conn. in 1812. Reuben died at Haddam in 1813 and Margaret as his widow was dismissed from the Haddam Church in 1814 to the Brick Presby. Church at NYC. Presumably that is where her only surviving son was then living.

I am tracing Margaret's only surviving dau. Margaret Van Horne Dwight.

Look forward to a reply.

RE: Capt. John Masson
You've done a lot of research on SSH, haven't you? I'd never heard of it until encountering an obit for Capt Masson in a SC paper. Why were the stones removed in the 80s and what happened to them, if you know?

Thanks for the photo of John Baker's memorial and the information. It is sad that the stone is so weathered.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

RE: John and Nicy Darling
Oh what I wouldn't give for photos. Trying to search from Minnesota is hard, but from my understanding the Darlings were big in the boat business in Long Island so maybe I'll give that angle a try

Thanks Again

RE: John May Sr.
the best way to make additions/corrections is to click the edit button on the persons memorial.
This way the holder of the memorial gets email with a link to memorial.

thanks
