|Bio and Links|
Currently working on several trees. Born in Tampa, Florida, raised in Bayside, Queens County, New York City, New York, currently living in Northern New Jersey. Retired in 2008.|
On my mother's side there are Irish and German immigrants (mid 1800s) who lived and raised families in the New York City area. My grandmother on my father's side is the link that makes me a direct descendant of Edward Doty who came over on the Mayflower in 1620. There are generations of colonizers and pioneers on this side. My family on my father's side were pioneers who went from New England to Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Iowa and finally into the western states. I am trying to organize everything for future generations and to honor my ancestors who have been forgotten and struggled greatly to just to survive.

You created the memorial below and I am wondering where you got this information. What was your source?
I am writing an article about Willard Sears. You mention in the memorial below that she was married to WILLARD Sears.

|Sharon Leon||RE: EDWARD DUNN - ANCESTRY.COM|
Ok, thanks! Sharon
|Sharon Leon||RE: DOTY SURNAME|
I have a couple of cousins with Mayflower ancestors, but those ancestors didn't have the surname Doty. As far as I know so far, I don't have Mayflower ancestors. If you encounter any Bruens in NJ, they are probably descended from my Puritan immigrant ancestor Obediah Bruen, who was one of the founders of Newark. Sharon
|Sharon Leon||RE: EDWARD DUNN|
Where was this posted on Ancestry.com? It sure looks like the right Edward. Same date and the family was living in Morristown. Different middle initial, but with the penmanship in those days an "A" might be mistaken for a "K." The cemetery record says that Edward was a child, so 10 yrs. of age would match that. Sharon
|Sharon Leon||RE: Edward Dunn|
I assume that you don't recall who gave you his birth date to post or you would have mentioned that. Thank you anyway for all the good Findagrave.com work you've been doing. While trying to research these Dunns at Ancestry.com, I recently stumbled on what is probably a completely different Dunn family buried at that cemetery, so posted memorials for them. Someone who's going to be visiting the Madison Public Library soon to look up obituaries offered to add Jeremiah & Catherine Dunn of Chatham to her list. I've been trying to figure out if they might have been the parents of James J. Dunn, the husband of Frances. I recognize Doty as a NJ surname that goes way back. I have a copy of the 1852 book by John Littell on the first settlers of Passaic Valley & vicinity. Sharon
|Denine Urquhart||RE: Elizabeth Ann Sears|
You entered Elizabeth Ann Sears into Find a Grave. She is buried in the Christ Episcopal Church Cemetery. You noted that her husband at the time was Willard L. Sears.
The Willard Leonard Sears that I am researching was buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Sonora. He left Connecticut permanently in 1861 and went North to California.
I publish a newsletter each month and it includes a featured grave. This month I chose Willard Sears for the featured grave so I am researching his story.
I found on Ancestry.com that Willard L. Sears was married at least twice, but there is a lot of inconsistencies. I was hoping you could tell me where you learned about Elizabeth and the death of her and her daughter.
|Denine Urquhart||Elizabeth Ann Sears|
I am writing an article on Dr. Willard Sears and I found that you show him married to Elizabeth Ann Sears who died during childbirth. I have searched so many websites, including ancestry.com and never found a record of him being married to Elizabeth Ann. I am just curious where you found your information?
|J L Bryant||Marker for Erastus M Briant|
Dear Ken, Thanks for posting the pic. Yours, Jeff
I have more question about that grave. Can you email me at email@example.com
