Ducrays at Mt. Carmel
Carol-I have a printout from Mt. Carmel of the 14 DuCrays buried in the Justin Ducray lot. I will go back next week and get some photos. I can send you a copy of the printout if you send me your E-mail address.

Correction & addition
Carol, correction to my July 9th message. Eva DuCray Brunot 1882-1967 is buried in St. Hippolyte Cemetery at Frenchtown with her husband Basil (Buzz) 1886-1951. Julius C DuCray's five children, Frances (my grandmother) 1875-1960, Nestor 1876-1963,Laura 1880-1962, Eva 1882-1967 & Julius P. 1886-1960. Nestor, Laura & Jule never got married & lived on the family farm on Oil Creek Road until their deaths. I made hay with them when I was a boy. Their graves are in the front left corner of St Peter & Paul cemetery at Pettis, all three names appear on a family headstone. The woman from Colorado in my first message was probably Judy Herr or one of her relatives. At that time she lived in Grand Junction Colorado & mentioned there were 10 DuCray families in the area. Her mother was Frances Christina DuCray 1901-1946 & her G G Grandfather was Charles DuCray, the brother of Julius C, my G Grandfather. I hope this is helpful...Bob Rickert

I am a Decray relative
Carol, I was just telling my neighbor about my relative's shipwreck when they came to this country. He was interested so I thought I would go online to see what details I could find. Wow, was I surprised to find there were other Ducray relatives around. My name is Robert (Bob) H.Rickert & I live in Meadville Pa. My Grandmother was Frances Durcay Richard LeComte. She was the sister to Jule, Nestor,Laura & Eva Ducray. I believe they were descendants of Julius Ducray, son of Nicholas Ducray. Four of the five are buried in Pettis Cemetery except for my Grandmother. She was married to a Joseph Richard first, they had one son that lived, Joe Richard. Than she married Arthur LeComte who was also married before with two sons than his wife died. They married each other & had two daughters, Marie LeComte Rickert, my mother & Dorothy Lecomte Connor, my aunt. Even though My grandfather & grandmother were married over 50 years, they were buried with their first wife & husband, therefore my grandmother is buried at St. Hipployte in Frenchtown with the Richards & my grandfather is buried in Pettis near his family. The LeComte family lived within site of Pettis Cemetery. I am not sure where you live but I remember some 20-25 years ago a lady came to see my mother to catch up on Ducray history from Colorado. I was thinking her relative was Charles, probably a brother of Julius & Augusts. I have a lot more detail filed away I could find with dates & places, I also have a reprint from the 50's? of the newspaper describing the shipwreck with a picture of Uncle Nestor holding the cross. The cross is still around by the way. Please contact me when you get a chance & we can touch base.
Regards, Bob Rickert, distant cousin

Bairds and DuCrays
Hi Carol, I went to Kiser Hill today to fulfill your request for Aurella and Benjamin Baird. I did find a few other Bairds in the cemetery and will add them if they are not already added. There were no DuCray's that I could see. Here are the others I had found: Joseph Almon and Vinnie; Alex and Bertha; Paul and Elizabeth Baird Hood; Frank, Mary and Baby.

Again, I have not checked the cemetery listings on Find A Grave yet to see if they are already posted or not.

Frank & Elizabeth Wood
I'm glad that I can transfer Frank & Elizabeth to family, no matter how close or distant.
I know how I have tried unsuccessfully to get some of my distant family transferred to me. In my family, there are very few of us still alive.
Thank you for the praise.

Howard l. Sawyer
Hello Carol,
My name is Michael.I live in San Pedro,ca.I found something belonging to a Howard L. Sawyer.There is also a Mrs.G Sawyer listed on the item and a San Francisco address.I did a little research and feel this may have been your Mr.Sawyer.I love a good mystery and would love to return this to the closest person to the original owner for sentimental value.If you are related ,maybe you can provide me with a San Francisco address of Mr.Sawyer for confirmation.The item is worth nothing of monetary value,but is something that would be important to me if it was my family.Thank you for your time.Sincerely,Michael Main.
p.s. If you are not related,can you leave me a message S well so I can look elsewhere.Thank you.

RE: Captain John Dart and Amy, continued
Thanks Carol - if you could find a record confirming Capt. John's parentage & marriage it would be awesome !!

RE: John Dart family, continued again
HI Carol - I think it is wonderful that you have created a memorial for those now gone. I am not related to the Dart family, but am to the Creelman family and John Creelman Dart's mother was a Creelman. Actually I research all of the Founding Families of Colchester County, Nova Scotia and both the Dart & Creelman families were among the earliest settlers there. Although everything I've seen online it would appear that your Capt. John and my Capt. John could be the same gent..... and if they are that would mean that Capt. John had a family living in California in the 1890's and afterwards AND ALSO a family in Green Oaks for the census of 1871, 1881, 1891 & 1901 - these families overlap, so unless he is not actually Geraldines father, but her step-father, that would mean Capt. John had 2 wives at the same time.... If a marriage record for Capt. John and Amy Stover could be found, that confirms his parents as David and Esther of Nova Scotia I would then be able to complete his life story in the family records. OH the tangled webs we sometimes get caught up in !! Thanks so much for your lovely reply Carol and please do keep me in mind if you learn more and I will do the same. Cheerio !

Senninger connection
Thank you for posting information on the DuCray line. My great, great grandmother was Celestine DuCray daughter of Nicholas. In a trunk that my grandmother Edna Bourquin Reynolds had were photos and etc from the DuCray, Stitzer, Bourquin, Monnin and Reynolds families. Several pictures of Aunt Jane Senninger, fron the 1900 to 1904 period were there and up until now I have not been able to find any trace of who she was.
Do you know where the name comes from as Charles named his son with this as his middle name? It is the same pattern that Celestine's son Augustus used to name his fourth child, Warren Ducray Bourquin who named his first born the same, and I suspect it may have come through the maternal family.
Any help or direction you can provide would be great. You can contact me at
One picture shows Aunt Jane in front of the house on North Main St. in Meadville, Crawford County,PA with my great grandmother Martha Jane Stitzer Bourquin and since Norman is in the picture it had to be before 1904 and after 1900.
Thank you
