RE: Duplicate Memorial
Thanks, Robert! As you probably already know, is now the owner of Find A Grave and is using these memorials as sources of information so having duplicate memorials makes this much more complicated.
Take care,

Duplicate Memorial
Your memorial for Mathurine Robin Guyon, Find A Grave # 122049530 is a duplicate and should be deleted. Her original memorial is Find A Grave # 76168908 which was created on 9/8/2011. Also, you have the incorrect burial location. She died in Beauport but was buried at Notre-Dame-de-Quebec in Quebec City.

RE: Daniel Goodwin or Maine
That's what I thought. I have found most early published family histories to be balderdash and rife with errors and local lore. As for Quebec records, I gave up on then a long time ago.. In fact, in general, Canadian records make me crazy. Thanks bunches for the response.

Daniel Goodwin or Maine
Hi --

I'm a bit confused and maybe you can help. The History of the Goodwins of Berwick Maine states that Daniel married twice: 1) Ann Thompson d/o Miles Thompson and 2) Amy Unknown. Has that been disproven and found that Ann Thompson and Amy Unknown are the same person? Hope you can help. Thanks!

RE: Blain
Hi Robert,
I am a direct descendant of Mathurin Abelin down through Francois and Louis to Abraham to Paul to Edward (my Dad). My mother was a Thompson and was born and raised in Owosso, MI. I had my autosomal DNA done through Ancestry and FTDNA. My Y67DNA was done through FTDNA(pending) and I just had the MTDNA
done so that'll be about 6-8 weeks. I have a group on Facebook called the Blaine Cousins. It is for family history, stories, photos. It seems I am doing 99% of the posts but I have over 60 cousin on it from the US, Newfoundland, and Australia. Still looking for cousins in the UK, Quebec and Ontario Provinces.Good luck in your research.

George Hubbard
The two George Hubbards cause a lot of confustion, but I do believe you have the wrong George Hubbard #126382215 linked with Elizabeth Watts Hubbard. Her husband was George Hubbard, but, the George H of Middletown. See memorial 15158027, Elizabeth Watts husband and Mary Ranney's father. and:

George Hubbard (1650) / Elizabeth (Watts) Hubbard

Name: George Hubbard

Birth: 1601, "probably in eastern or southern England" (Hubbard History/Day, 1895)

Emigration: To Hartford by 1639 from Dorchester or Newtown (Cambridge), Mass.(GBRC); to Middletown 1652.(MVR)

Death: March 18, 1684 (MVR, BCVR)

Occupation & Public Service: "About 1650, or when he left Hartford, he carried with him a commission from the colonial government as 'Indian Agent and Trader for the Mattabesett District.'" (In 1649 he had been "fined 10 pounds for exchanging a gunn with an Indian.")(Hubbard History/Day, 1895). George Hubbard was one of the 10 men who organized the first church in 1668(FFS); he contributed land for the second meeting house (1668), which was located in the middle of what is now Main Street, near Liberty and Grand Streets. (Hubbard History/Day, 1895)

Marriage: m. Elizabeth Watts, 1640, Hartford, Conn. (b. about 1622, Bocking, Essex, England; d. 1702, Middletown, Conn.) She was the daughter of Richard Watts and Elizabeth (Duck) Watts of Dorsetshire, England and later Hartford, Conn. (Hubbard History/Day, 1895)

Children: 8 children between 1645-1660.(MVR, BCVR)

Doderer family
Hi Robert,
MANY thanks for all your hard work- I have found, through you, my 9th through 12th grandparents and their families. What a gift you have given me! Bless you!
Can you tell me the difference between Andreas Schwartz [memorial #12213461](born 1589) who married Rosina (maiden name unknown) and had daughter Walpurga Schwartz and married Hans Jacob Doderer;
and Andreas Schwartz [ memorial # 122164772] (born 1586) who maried Walpurga Allgaeuar. Are the names Andreas and Walpurga common in Germany?
My line goes down through:
12th= Martin Doderer,11th= Blasius Doderer, 10th= Kasper Doderer, 9th Hans Jacob Doderer, 8th Hans George DoTTerer, 7th Hans Casper DoTTerer, 7th George Philip DoTTerer[ here we come from Germany to USA (Maryland)], 6th Michael DoTTerer [note: he was a famous Revolutionary War Vet!] 5th Sophia Dotterer who married John Troxell who was born in Egypt, PA and founded Gettysburg, PA! [very famous.]Best of luck with your grave location, Sincerely, Sharon Clements Hulton

Urbain Tessier (1624 - 1689)
You requested a photo for the marker of Urbain Tessier.
Here's a brief history of the catholic cemeteries in Montreal. The first catholic cemetery is situated undeneath the Pointe-à-Callière Museum in Old Montreal. No markers remain for the people buried there. Two other historical burial grounds opened in the same area were the Cimetiere de la Poudrière (corner of St-Pierre and St-Antoine, in Old Montreal) and le Cimetiere Saint-Antoine, on what is now la Place du Canada (corner of Rene-Levesque boulevard and Peel Street) across Marie-Reine-du-Monde Montreal Cathedral. Both cemeteries are now defunct, no markers stand and the remains were transported in the mid-1850 in mass bone graves, in the new Notre-Dame-des-Neiges (aka) Cote-des-Neiges Catholic Cemetery, on Mont-Royal.
Since the burial ground is instrusted to the Sulpician Brothers, owners of the Cote-des-Neiges cemetery, all the burial records are in the Notre-Dame Basilica church book.
Researchers might not expect to find a marker for people who died before the 1850's in Montreal (and in Quebec in general). The tradition of having a permanent marker was reserved to wealthy families and the permanent headstone became common at the wake of the funeral parlors business in the mid-1880's. The most affordable markers were wooden or metal crosses, which did not survive the test of time.

RE: Parent-Lalonde
Hello again, Robert =])
Thanks for your reply, and no need to worry about 'delays'. Few people on Find-a-Grave expect prompt responses, as we all have Lives beyond our contributions here. ;D

If you enter the email address I gave you into your usual email program, and use the @ sign instead of the (at), it should work. Hitting 'reply' to the message itself does nothing, as that's a remote server for out-bound messages only. And using the Public Profile messages for detailed conversation is not the best plan. Better to communicate directly by email.

Another way you could try, is find a memorial of mine, for example #47122629 for Maria Lucienne Marguerite Miron Leclair (my children's grandmother and 5th great-granddaughter of Antoine Emery dit Coderre). Then go to the Edit tab at the top-right corner of the page, select the option to 'Suggest any other correction or addition', and you can send a private message to me that way [just as I have been doing to you] :D

TTFN, =]) Beth

No problem Robert, thank you for carrying the Kimball line all the way back seven generations over there in England. The only problem that I am having is finding Richard Kimball's grave in Ipswich Mass. I have checked several cemeteries and only found one Kimball with a death date in the 1990s. I will check that out later, right now I am concentrating on Richard Kimball and his own family graves. If you run across any of their graves please place them on their Memorial Pages for me and let me know please. Thanks.

I would have made the links for Ursula Scott Kimball 131203162 that you requested a lot sooner and I would have let you know sooner but the Find a Grave web site was down for the last four or five days, for upgrades I believe. I was unable to do any work with Find a Grave during that time. However I have now made the changes that you requested. Thanks for your work with find a grave.

Thank you very much for linking my family tree all the way back to Thomas Kimball 128182781. For some reason the original creator of the Richard Kimball Memorial Page deleted the Richard Kimball and his wife Ursula Scott Kimball pages so I created new pages for both of them and linked Richard to your Henry Kimball.
