Bio Photo Mayflower Connection: I descend from the following
Degory Priest, Francis Eaton, John Alden,Priscilla Mullins, Myles Standish, Peter Brown, Francis Cooke, George Soule, Isaac Allerton, Richard Warren, through my father, Member 27436, Society of Mayflower Descendants.

My uncle, Carl Glee Smith Jr is memorialized at Manila American Cemetery and Memorial in the Philippines. His life was lost during Typhoon Cobra, December 18, 1944 when three ships went down, USS Hull, USS Monaghan and his ship the USS Spence. I have attempted to leave notes at each of the memorials for the 793 sailors who lost their lives that day. I also see many other memorials that no one has left flowers or honored them, I am also honoring those as I have time. There are over 44,033 memorials at that cemetery. May God bless the thousands of families who suffered loss during WW II.

I am attempting to link many of Smith burials in an effort to help those who are just starting their family search venture. Descending from four Smith branches is a challenge. At the present time, I am linking Smiths from several states from Vermont, New York,Ohio to Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. From Virginia through Kentucky to Arkansas. From Georgia, Arkansas to Texas.

In addition, I am documenting my Jones from New Hampshire, through Ohio, Illinois to Nebraska.

A few of my family lines are Blatherwick, Farrow, Gilbert, Wood, Kelsey, Evans, Blake, Cady, Watkins, Stewart, McCormick, Jones, Stiles, McDermott, Hoffman, Smith, Black, Brazle, Roth, Martin, Cole, Morgan, Oswalt

If you use my personal photos, please give me credit for the photo, this includes family photos posted as well as cemetery photos. Thank you.

S.N. Blatherwick
I have been looking at your memorial for Samuel Nelson Blatherwick. Do you know if, he had another spouse? I am related through the Westbrook family. I found a marriage record for S.N. Blatherwick to Smithy nee WESTBROOK for 19 Oct 1875 in Brazos Co., TX. I also see the memorial for the infant child that died in 1876 exactly nine months after my marriage record. It makes me think this is my line and that Smithie possible died in childbirth.I would appreciate any help you can offer. I am also related to Weeks, Curd and several other families in Brazos Co., TX. Thanks, Connie

RE: Marriage Record
I do not know where Warren and Annie married. My husband is their grandchild. I found birth info. on William Anthony Gilbert 1928-1987 (uncle) born in Harris county TX. I had a copy of that cert. but computer crashed and lost.

Marriage could have been in Tennessee, Alabama or Texas.

I added the family connection for Walter and Nannie. My grandfather was Percy Torrence, Walter's brother. If you have any information for Walter, I would be happy to add it or I could transfer ownership to you so you can add it. Please let me know.

Suggest error correction
Dear Ms. Blatherwick,

On Find a Grave website in Nebo Cemetery, Henderson County, Tennessee, my great, great, great grandmother Seana Whitney (Brooks)Lipscomb died April 29, 1899. However, the Find a Grave website has the death written as April 29, 1829. The date of 1899 can be plainly seen on the photo of the headstone. Will you please let someone know? Thank you very much.

Sincerely, William W. Lipscomb II

The memorial page says that his brother was Dennison Streeter. Do you know of a source for that? It's exciting if that's definite -- I've been trying to puzzle out the relationships between the Monmouth Streeters. Calvin was definitely father to William, Alvah, and Lydia A Streeter (Ellison) (Warren), but I haven't been able to find how closely Dennison is related to any of them since I've never found a source to tie them together. Dennison is my 3rd great grandfather. Thanks so much.

John S Streeter, Warren County, Illinois
His wife Abbie Myers lived until 1946. She and John S. presumably divorced some time between 1888 and 1897. He remarried Sarah Jane Hunt Ostrom on 19 Aug 1897. She remarried Levi Ensign Dufoe on 22 Nov 1897, and they moved to Iowa. She's buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Oelwein.

Geraldine Wood's memorial
Thanks Vickye, for calling the duplication to my attention. Who knows what I did??? I start adding data & sometimes get carried away. I deleted one of the memorials. If you are a Wood descendant, I would be delighted to transfer the memorial to you. Let me know.
