Nicholas and Rhoda Weeks
I received your additions for the memorials of Nicholas and Rhoda Weeks. Are you certain that they are from Maine and that they are the same people?

In records of the U.S Dutch Reformed Church:
Sep 6, 1828 Weeks, Nicholas, father of Jacob W., grandfather of Stephen W.
Sep 16, 1828 Weeks, Rhoda, wife of Nicholas Weeks

Also in "A Record of the Services of the Commissioned Officers and Enlisted Men of Kittery and Eliot, Maine"
it says that Nicholas Weeks, son of Joseph Weeks, was baptized March 28, 1742. Married Rhoda Hutchings. Lived on the Eastern end of town (Kittery) and died there Jan 15, 1809, aged sixty-seven years, on the farm now owned by John Wentworth.

In New York Marriages records there is a marriage between Nicholas Weeks and Rhoda Craft 20 July 1762

I believe this Nicholas Weeks is the son of Amos and Abigail Weeks

Hi Joseph,

Sorry, I didn't realize from your message that you just wanted two of the kid's names in the bio section merged, I have done that.

Hi Joseph,

Someone has fouled up this memorial because the automated edits are so easy to process that contributors are putting through name changes and some of our volunteers are letting them go through. This is leading to confusion as contributors are now trying to change specific people into some other person they are looking for (Something I have seen a great deal of on This person (Paul John Scott) died on 15 Dec 1954 in Los Angeles County, this is corroborated by both the cemetery records and the California Death Index. I have put out a photo request for his marker but for now I have reverted his name to the original spelling as shown in the cemetery records and the California Death Index. We will make no more changes to this memorial until a marker photo is posted.

Anyway, thanks for your input. Hopefully we will get this all sorted out correctly.

RE: 6th cousins
Our Norwegian ancestor was pretty unhappy about being sent off to learn the shipping from the lower deck up...I wonder if he talked to the other John Foss or even met him.

If he was anything like my closer Foss family, he would not talk to him anyway unless it was to pass the salt. (I take after my maternal grandmother and her Irish relations...Grandfather was just amazed by both of us talking all the time.)

My uncle did most of that research of the Foss overseas and my cousin may have his files still. He had letters back and forth about the family of the young man thinking he was dead. The contact was my uncle's age and probably dead by now, so those letters are the best clues and information we had.

I have tried to follow in Uncle Larry's tracks but he had so much going on that I am knee deep in directions and pages of genealogy. (Literally)

Your work helps. This is a lot like a jig saw puzzle. Someone started some clusters but it is up to us to figure out what goes to what.

I am trying to keep up with the current generations, too. ... But they just keep having babies and dying. Seems like I have to update pages daily. Do you use the LDS Family Search much?

RE: 6th cousins
Wonderful to meet you! This is a work in progress....and the cousins keep having more babies. The current ones are as hard to keep up with as the earlier generations.

Thanks for all the work you do, too.

Phineas JR
I have actually 8 children. But have not acquired information on Phineas Jr b Jan 8 1814 in Leeds...yet. I just have my uncles books and have not yet found the file on this uncle.

John 1800
Harriet 1802 (died in the fire)
Allura 1805 (m John Stanley)
Verranus 1806 (m Nancy Hogan/June Saunders)
Alvin 1807-1819 (drowned)
Eliza 1809 (m Wingate Linscott-descendant in DAR)
Loring 1812 (m Mary Gott)
Phineas 1814

I think there was another baby about 1803/4 that died or was a still birth, but have not found much on that yet.

We have a family bible...pretty bad shape...but it gives clues.

I heard someone else has another bible but have not found the person's contact info in the boxes of my uncle's belongs, yet.

But so far, not Phineas Jr.

Is that what you have?

William Swift
Thanks for the note. But, since you leave no alternatie other than this your personal forum page to respond, what you sent me is, to be direct, garbage. There are more than six readily noticable factual errors in the material. Perhaps most important, William Swift, the Sandwich, Mass. immigrant, has no known and confirmed English ancestry and any claim that he does is erroneous. And, he was not from Bocking in Essex.

Did you attempt to read either of the two highly professional and well respected sources I mention in William's Find A Grave sketch?
