Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm the great grand son of Walter Herbert Kendrick. I've been doing Genealogy for about 5Oth. years. The photo left is the begin of my Family History Researching. I'm with my grandmothers. I'm in the process of writing the Kendrick Family History, and have about 9 Generations done.
They lived in Cape Cod, and Plymouth, Ma., and also Nova Scotia. And I'm willing to take additions, and correction.
I'm also writing the Family History of Oswalt family, and I have about 8 Genearation done. It is my wife Family. They have been having the Oswalt Family Reunion, for 74 years, since 1938, on every third Sunday of July. At the Grange Park in Sanborn, Clearfield Co., Pa. AND NEXT YEAR WILL BE THEIR 75 YEAR !!! They also have replace, and place several gravestones for their relatives, and others. We are working on adding a gravestone for William Henry Merritt in the Old Clearfield Cemetery, in CLEARFIELD, Pa., He never had one.

Let me known if there any corrections, and if there is any Transfer need. I'm related to most of them.

Mercy Freeman (1659-1737) of Eastham, Barnstable Co., Massachusetts

Thanks for the correction and her removal from Riverside Cemetery. The confusion may stem from a LDS posted transcription that was itself a poor abbreviation of the Hale transcription of April, 1933. The earlier and far better transcription contains the exact verbiage of all the ancestors of the Carter/Taylor/Brewster families that were once listed on four bronze plaques, each to a side of a grand granite obelisk. The plaques have since disappeared. Fortunately, we have what they said. Unfortunately, on, you'll find the mistaken LDS transcription that from these plaques, identifies every Carter ancestor back to Mayflower pilgrim William Brewster as interred in Riverside Cemetery, Barkhamsted CT - including Mercy Freeman and Brewster himself! You might have found one of these citations so placed Mercy there. . . . .

An interesting side note is that Charles Evans Hughes married into this Carter family, marrying the bosses daughter, Antoinette Ellen Carter, in 1888. Hughes went on to become the 36th Governor of New York (1907-1910), 44th United States Secretary of State (1921-1925), and 11th Chief Justice of the United States (1930-1941).

Here's the obelisk built by her father (my 1st cousin 5x removed) and Hughes:

RE: Mercy Fuller (Nickerson) Kendrick
Hi Reg:
I'm not at the library anymore. It will not
be a problem for me to go and do the research
for you. They have microfilms of the local
newspapers. I can also look into the court
documents for his estate and when it was
proved. I will also see if the "Town Annual
Reports" have a death date on Mercy F., if
so, I will look for a obit or death notice.
There will also be other research involved.
I will probably get back to you within a few
weeks. I do not mind helping you out.
Take care,

Is this one of your ancestors? A lady I am writing to has the Shurtleff genealogy. I notice you have questions about where some of them are buried.

Also, how is your Kendrick book coming?

Benjamin Crosby Kendrick/Kenrick, jr.
Reg, you may be interested to know that Benjamin, jr., who was born in Massachusetts, son of Benjamin and Julia, actually died in New Zealand in 1920. He was an American Civil War soldier who served in the 43rd Massachusetts Infantry, and applied for the Civil War pension, from his residence in New Zealand, in 1893. He is buried at the St. Paul's Anglican churchyard cemetery in Christchurch. His pension papers, available from the National Archives in Washington, will provide further details, and confirm his date and place of death. Hope this helps.

George Osewalt/ Oswalt 1886-1957
You have him linked to Reuben as a "son"-I believe he is a grandson of Reuben; a son of Ellsworth Ellis Osewalt and Hannah Brough?

Chatham library is a wonderful place for research - right on Main Street. For any cemetery info the best is the lady whose information I gave you previously. Happy Researching!
