|sticksandstones||Madeline Grubb Traver, Mildred and John Lamora|
Perplexing, to say the least. We could try it another way.
1. You delete the links from Madeline to the two husbands, then let me know when you've done that.
2. Next, I'll add the link for her first marriage, from her fist husband John Lamora, including the year they were married.
3. Then I'll add the link for John's second
marriage to Mildred, including the year they were married.
The only other thing I see occurring is the marriages are appearing in alphabetical order.
If this doesn't work, I'll put out a plea for help on the forum and see what is suggested as a fix.
One more time....
|sticksandstones||RE: John Lamora - Madelines husbands links|
I had deleted my link, so you could add the link from your end, with the dates of marriage added, so they would populate in the correct order. Did you try that yet?
|sticksandstones||John Lamora - Madelines husbands links|
I believe I figured out how to get the marriages in proper sequence. The family links to multiple spouses need to be from the wife back toward each of the husbands, with the year married entered. Once that is done, the names appear in the proper sequence.
I've removed the link from John Lamora to Madeline Leora Traver. Now you can add the link back to John(113547365), along with the year of marriage, 1929, making sure you have the year of marriage to Andrew Traver set to 1940. The names should be in proper timeline sequence.
(I just had such an instance occur for me personally, so I know it works)
I tried removing one year of marriage, then the other, then both, each time refreshing the page on Madeline's memorial. Unsure why the order is showing up correct. You might try removing, saving, then re-adding your links back for her second marriage to Mr Traver. You might try asking on one of the forums for some assistance on how to fix this issue.
|Carol Page Tilson||RE: Mr. Powers|
Mr. Powers was somewhat a mystery man. It's too bad the guy didn't have any descendants to tell his full story.
Records indicate he was Gaylord C. Powers from NY National Guard duty on the Mexican border in 1916 and when the unit was mobilized and sent overseas for WWI, 1917-1919 [advancing in rank from private to corporal then sergeant]. And Marine Corps muster rolls identify him as Gaylord C. Powers, private first class, from his enlistment in July 1942 through July 1944.
His middle name is never given. Only on the 1900 census, when he was 7 and living with his folks in MA, is he identified without the "C."
He's only enumerated once  with his wife, Myrtle; thereafter she lived with her parents, Harry and Mary DeBoakes of Albany, but always as "married." In 1930, Gaylord C. Powers can be found as a "lodger" in Manhattan, a railroad conductor and married too.
As far as I can tell, he was the only Gaylord C. Powers who ever lived in the U.S.
P.S. Thanks for all the memorial transfers. Looks as if I have a lot more old obituaries to find.
|marsha haney||RE: Thomas L. Stemp|
I unfortunately do no have much to add to the Stemp family - you actually supported that they lost a daughter Rosa that I wasn't aware of - I am still trying to find out what their connection is to Mechanicville - they lived in Clyde and Hoosick Falls but Rosa their first child, James another child were the first two to be buried there and then mother Helen Candall Stemp - baby Arthur is in an unmarked grave around 1904 - father Thomas and other sibling Minnie didn't come along until much later.
My family has a genetic disorder that has traced back to baby Arthur's mother Maud Van Der Kar Stemp and I have just about ruled out that it came from the Stemp side and either came from her mother Margaret Van Wormer Van Der Kar (of Glenville) or possibly her father Barna Van Der Kar (of Waterford). Records get really sketchy when you get past 1880.
I am fascinated by what you do and may have to look into it further - I live in Florida and there isn't the history here that I am accustomed to growing up in New England.
|marsha haney||Thomas L. Stemp|
Alice - thank you so much for finding this grave - I was visiting from FL and went to Hudson View with a friend in Aug of 2012 and we looked all over for this family plot and couldn't find it because of the overgrowth - the caretaker had also told us that many of the gravestones had been destroyed due to vandalism - I have always wanted to go back and figured a Spring trip would be best but wasn't sure if I would ever be able to do so now that I live in FL.
Thomas and Helen were my great-great grandparents and there are other family members buried here.
|Caroline Hoag||Thank You!|
Thanks Alice for Betsey Hoag gravestone photo! That is great!
|Gillian Wilson||RE: 101033936|
no need to transfer. I just know the family. Thank you anyway. Jill
I hope you have had a good day. I do not need you
to send this memorial back. I have been having some health problems & have transfered a lot of memorials
as I am not able as of now to take care of them.
If I have any more that are related to you I will be glad to transfer them. I just like to put in info
in because it has helped me with 5 Family Histories.
Have a great day,
