"Looking on the happy Autumn-fields,|
An thinking of the days that are no more."
- Alfred Lord Tennyson
"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.”
― George Cooper
The holidays are not far away. I love this time of year but get homesick for my New England. I identify as a New England gal through and through, even though I pioneered to California many sunsets ago. I grew up with beautiful East Rock right outside my window at 239 Everit Street in New Haven CT and miss it everyday.
The past is where my heart is and I discovered the infinite joys of family research and history when I was very young. A trained medieval historian and art historian, I planted my roots deep in scholarly research also and methodology at NYU and Columbia University.
Currently I am writing short articles about my famous and infamous cousins Aaron Burr, Matthias and Aaron Ogden!
I believe in the adage that harkens to find truth in everything. Needless to say, my ancestral background has had a profound influence on me.
Surmnames researching- Ogden, Augur, Battersby, Phelps, White, Vicknair, Boldt.
Email with questions anytime, especially as more grave sites before 1000AD are discovered.

|Daniel Gabehart||RE: nancy Vicknair California here|
That's the piece of the puzzle that was missing. Tom. Bernice is my Mom, we lost her at the age of ninety (sounds premature doesn't it) in 2013. My sisters (Loretta and Pat) and I went out to the Bay area last October to visit Mom's siblings. We went back for a "cousins organized" get together after Easter of this year. Nancy and Linda were the only Vicknair cousins in attendance. Theresa and Lyndy (that's what Mom always called him, so consequently we do too) seem to be holding up well for old-timers. Seems I saw some photos on the wall of your and Tom's progeny and +. Living in Texas has caused us to not stay in contact as much as we should or could have. We got our photos primarily from Mom and Helen. I bet there are a ton of photos in California that we have not seen.
Well it is nice to bump into you in the cyber graveyard. Now I know my second "Nancy Vicknair."

he also uses an iPhone 4S
and most of my mom's male ancestors went to Harvard ....

|Cinnamon Girl||RE: Sir Bubba|
Thanks for the reply. Today is his Angel Day and twice I have
placed a token of a small child. I will go back to his memorial
and delete those two and replace with correct tokens. So
very sorry! Hugs!
|Cinnamon Girl||RE: Thank you|
Hello Nan - could you clarify something for me? Is Sir Bubba
Boldt Vicknair a pet or a person? I am wondering so in the
future I can place the correct kind of token/remembrance.
Hugs, Jean Ann
|Cinnamon Girl||RE: Thank you|
You are so welcome. I enjoyed visiting your memorials and
will be back for more visits in the future. Have a great night
and God bless you and your family! Hugs, Jean Ann
|Bob O||RE: New Haven EWM photo|
You're welcome - glad I could find it for you. We've had a lot of snow since then so I won't be taking more pictures for a while. Hope you are not in the drought area of CA - sounds like it's bad there.
