Kindrick & Kendrick

Their Marriage Intent and Marriage in Harwich has it spelled Kindrick. Plus They spell their name in many different ways such as Kendrick, Kindrick, Kenwrick, Kenrick, Kandrick, and Cenwric, Kenricke.

Hi Lori:
I have printed both death certificates for
comparison. If you look up at the right
hand corner of each it will have a town,
one says Avon the other Plymouth.
Charles died in Avon so there is a death
certificate filed in that town for him.
He is buried in Plymouth so they also have
a death certificate of their own.
I did notice that the address where he died
is not the same on both certificates, one
says Sullivans Lane (I believe this was his
residence) the other has West Main.
Also the age at death is different on both,
one says 74y, 5m, xd, the other 74y, 4m, 26d.
The date of birth is also not the same on
the certificates. I don't know what happens
when a person dies in one town and is trans-
ported to another for burial. Maybe that is
why the undertakers are not the same? Maybe
the undertaker from Brockton transported him
to Plymouth, then the Plymouth undertaker
did the funeral service? His son Charles Jr.
was the informant on the death certificate,
he may have said "Oak Grove" as a place of
burial, I know you can be very confused when
somebody you love dies. Oak Grove/Vine Hills
do seem like the same cemetery. Personally
I would use the Plymouth death certificate,
it has the correct cemetery, the correct
address of Charles, good information on his
parents. For a date of birth on Charles'
memorial I would put Sept. 1839 with no day
of birth, unless you can verify the day he
was born.
I come across this quite often, a person
dies in one town and is buried in another.
There will be two death registers or certificates.
Most of the time the information contradicts.
The Avon certificate did help a lot, it lead
to the office at Vine Hills/Oak Grove, and
now we know that Charles is at Vine Hills.
I added a cropped version of Charles' death
certificate (Plymouth's) to his memorial.
Do you want me to delete the other one that
was filed in Avon? I also added the death certificate for Annie Mariah (Mitchell) Pierce.
If you want you can edit the order of the
photos on your memorials. If you rather have
the gravestone photo first then the
certificates you can change the order that
they appear on the memorial.

RE: Mary (Kendrick) Pierce

Thank You for copy of Death Register. Also she is listed in 1820 Census, but there mistake by census taker. He listed her, and her sister as been under 10 years of age. Her sister Olive was under 10 year, but Mary was about 12 years old.

Thank You, Thank You,

RE: Kendrick
You are very welcome.
I am glad Charles is getting the
recognition that he deserves, and
possibly a gravestone.
I found some information on who may be
Charles' second wife, it is actually from
her death certificate which I downloaded:
Annie Mariah (Mitchell) Pierce
Born August 31, 1845, Maine,
died December 15, 1910, Plymouth.
Daughter of Benson Mitchell.
Burial: Vine Hills, Plymouth.
Do you think this is Charles's 2nd wife?
F.Y.I. The three vitals in life are:
Birth, marriage and death. The best source
of a birth is a birth record, of a marriage
a marriage record, of a death a death record.
Even though the death record has a date of
birth on it, the best source would be the
birth record. You can use the date of birth
from the death certificate but it would not
be the best source.
If you feel this is Charles' 2nd wife and
you want to add a memorial for her I could
add the death certificate if you would like.
Have a good night,

Mary (Kendrick) Pierce

It looks like you prove that Mary (Kendrick) Pierce was the daughter of James and Mercy Kindrick. That is great!!! Do you have a copy of her Death Register record? I would like copy of it for my Genealogy.
Did you see what Sandra found on Mercy Fuller Kendrick age. She trying find any record of Mercy there is in Plymouth. I would love to know where she was buried, and put a gravestone for her, and Husband. Sandra Lennox is great, isn't she !!

That is great what you found,

RE: Kendrick
You are welcome!
I took a little look at your memorials and
came across Charles W. Pierce memorial
#136403295. I noticed that you were looking for
his burial location. I did not find him in the
Plymouth County gravestone transcriptions,
or in the town of Plymouth listing. So I looked
up his death certificate, it says that he is
buried at Oak Grove Cemetery, Plymouth. I did
add this certificate to his memorial for you
to look at. If you do not want the death
certificate on the memorial let me know and I
will delete it.
Why Charles is not listed in the Plymouth burial
record search, I do not know. He is not even on
Plymouth County gravestone transcriptions. What
I did find:
wife of
Charles W. Pierce

Anne M.
wife of
Charles W. Pierce

Harry T.

As I had mentioned Charles was not in the
Plymouth burial record search, neither was
Betsey who died 1884 or Anne M. who died 1910!
They were on the transcriptions but not on
the burial record search. Hope I didn't
confuse you. I am thinking maybe Charles does
not have a gravestone? Perhaps he is buried
near his wives?

RE: Kendrick
You are very welcome.
Vine Hills Cemetery is very large. Oak Grove,
St. Joseph, and Beth Jacob are all attached
to it. But if you go into the cemetery on the
route 44 side (Samoset street) you will notice
a sign for the office (it looks like a street
sign). They can help you locate where the
plot is. I'm not sure what time the office
closes but I believe it is between 4 and 5
When I go back to the genealogy and history
room at the library, I will look in the
Nickerson genealogy books and see if there
is further information on Mary E.
Did find some information on Benjamin N. Pierce:
Transcription of Wareham vital records:
Benjamin Nye Peirce, b. 10 Nov. 1799, son of
Richard and Joanna.
Also Benjamin's siblings were listed ( I do
not know if this is all of his siblings, these
are just the ones that I found):
1) Betsey Peirce, b. 4 Sept. 1804
2) Jabez Nye Peirce, b. 25 Jan. 1802
3) Richard Peirce, b. 2 Jan. 1809 (after his
name it says: LE has Feb., I don't know what
this means).
Benjamin's death register:
Died October 19, 1870, Plymouth, Mass.
Aged 70 years, 11 months, 9 days.
Occupation: Mariner
Place of birth: Wareham
Son of Richard, born Plymouth
and Joannah, born Wareham
Benjamin's marriage

I noticed that you left a public message for
Reg Thompson about Mary E. Kendrick.
Mary and her husband Benjamin are buried
at Vine Hills Cemetery, Plymouth, Mass.,
both do no have memorials on Find A Grave.
Benjamin N. Pierce died 10-9-1870, his wife
Mary E. Kendrick died 12-7-1883. They are
both in plot 1007W. I do not know what other
family members are buried there.
Mary's death register says that she is
the daughter of James Kendrick and
Mercy F. (Nickerson). It also states on the
death register that she was born in Harwich,
Mass., she died in Plymouth, Mass. It does
not give a place of birth of her parents,
that area is left blank. I know from doing
research that the Nickerson family is mainly
from Harwich, Mass.
Hope this helps a little.

RE: Rachael M Wood
Could you please add the photo to Lila's memorial (#135678779) and Weston's (linked in Lila's profile). Thanks!
Added by bshorey on Sep 10, 2014 6:04 AM
RE: Rachael M Wood
I was able to track down who the others are:

Lila B is Rachael's granddaughter by her daughter Sarah Adeline and her husband John Henry Kelly. Obviously, Weston is Lila's husband.

The marker for Charles Wood is now the mystery...
