|Abigail Banks Dennison||Pelham|
I forgot to add this. I can't remember who told me but it was said he was buried in secret. He prob. was buried where all of them are but in an unmarked grave.
|Abigail Banks Dennison||Pelham|
I thought you were the one who had the letters. They are listed under him or her in a private tree and for some reason I thought it was your "Lots of Fams" Tree but maybe I'm wrong. Will look.
|Abigail Banks Dennison||Margaret (Johnston) Pelham|
I wonder if she died in 1883 and was buried Congressional Cem., and then her mother had her moved in 1886 to Cave Hill. That might be one scenario.
|Abigail Banks Dennison||Johnston / Pelham|
Can I see the letters Charles Pelham wrote about her?
|Abigail Banks Dennison||Margaret Louise Johnston|
Thanks for article. Does it say Mary Louise Johnston as her name is Margaret Louise? I wonder if they're talking about same person.
|Abigail Banks Dennison||Margaret Louise Pelham|
Hav'nt heard from you in long while. Thanks for the update on her. There is a Find A Grave memorial to her in the Congressional Cem. in Washington DC, as well as the Find A Grave memorial at Cave Hill. Don't know which is correct as there is no picture of a gravestone. Could be they are both memorials.
|Gina Reardon-Gaddis||RE: Rufus Edger Reeves|
Transfer is complete. Thank you for wanting to care for his memorial.
|James W. Waters||Thayers|
Thank you for the transfer. Two Thayer brothers were among the first settlers of Braintree, and it was said in the 1800s that everyone in the town was related to a Thayer. The Wilds have also been there since about 1700.
When we were kids, we spent summers at my grandmother's beach house in Hull. From the third-floor attic, I had a spectacular view of Boston Harbor. I was too young to appreciate it, but I remember Fort Warren, not realizing that it had been built by Sylvanus. In fact, according to the 1850 Census, he lived there before retiring to Braintree.
A cousin told me about the resources of the Norfolk County Register of Deeds, which has been a gold mine. Unfortunately the pre-1900 records have not been indexed, although they have been scanned. I have not been able to trace the property from Sylvanus to my great-aunts, who were actually born in South Boston but moved there in 1886. They didn't purchase the house until 1926. Most of the land in that area had been acquired by two other families by 1900.
|James W. Waters||Livia Abigail Wild, #102221753|
Livia Abigail died in Boston in 1926 (Mass. Death Index, Boston, 1926, 2: 380). She had been residing in Dorchester. She and her mother were actually named Livia: the names were misspelled on the 1860 Census. Nowhere else does the name Olivia occur. The original Livia Drusilla was the wife of Caesar Augustus.
The birthplace of Gen. Sylvanus Thayer belonged to my great-aunts, before it was moved to So. Braintree Sq. My sisters and I grew up in that house. He died at the Wild residence.
Dr. Jonathan Wild died in Braintree 11 Nov 1861. (Mass. Death Records, Braintree, 1861, #39)

|Jeannette Rapley Sauntry||Thomas Hanna grave stone|
Thomas Hanna is my ancestor, I would like to know more about what is written on the side that is visible, yet not readable. Also I see the grave stone is in a private yard. Could you tell me more about the nearest town name?
thank you for placing this grave stone on the web site I have been searching for some time for his date of death and place of death.
