|Bio and Links|
I grew up in Ohio and currently live in New York.|
HIVELY - STRATTON - MILES - TABER - BRAZIEL/BRAZIELL - MCCAUSLIN/MCCAUSLAND
I have tons of information on my side of the family from my father who has spent many years researching. He was a scientist so he is very meticulous and does not show anything he has not verified in some way.
BOWN - BAINES - CARNAHAN
Researching this joined family: Bown in England and Pittsburgh, Baines/Carnahan in Pittsburgh, ongoing. Much information in late 2009.
SCHAMBERGER/SCHAMBERG - RAMSPERGER
I have spent about three years (as of Mar 2009), most painstaking research of finding just one descendant who had any information at all, finding censuses on line, newspaper articles. What I have so far is slim but solid.
BRAZIEL/BRAZIELL - LAGRAVE
Most of this information has come through (after my father's research of 3 generations back) very slow results then finding a whole lode of information through Abenaki websites and through an Abenaki anthropology doctoral candidate who is researching the breaking down and the scattering of the Abenaki communities in St. Francis and the Northeast; and from one descendant who had many records and contributed original research for the Lagrave family.
BARBER - VANDERMEID - MACOMBER - CHRISTIE - REED - PITTS
On my husband's side, the information I have collected since 2007 comes from a genealogy book filled in by Ruth Barber (1886-1966) who was interested in family history; and a briefcase of notes from my mother and father in law, some from his father about family history. I have built on that through census records, church records, and cemetery records, where available and a few ancestry books, specifically Don Barber's Connecticut Barbers.

|Jan Armstrong||John Burk grave|
You have a memorial to John Burk "soldier of the Revolution." Do you know much of anything about who John was?
I am related to a John Burk that fought in the American Revolution. He joined the Continental Army while living in Spencer, Massachusetts. He fought at Bunker Hill. He also participated in the Battle of Bennington, and he was taken captive during the Battle of Bemis Heights (Saratoga).
I have never been able to find his place of burial and did not know whether this was his grave or not.
|David Jenkins||RE: Elihu Taber|
I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and insights into the family of Thomas Taber.
Elihu (second child to Thomas and Mary Bennett) and Anna Snow Taber have been a kind of brick wall for me. The idea they may have been Quaker hadn't occurred to me. I thought Thomas' embrace of Quakerism occurred later in life....after his older children reached adulthood and had not influenced them.
Elihu and Anna had their first child (Isaac Snow Tabor) in Easton, NY in 1792. Then removed to area of Montpelier, VT where their remaining 7 children were born. Ferrisburgh/Starksboro/Lincoln is not that far from Montpelier - I guess a desire to be closer to father and family.
I never thought Quakerism was that strong in North Central Vermont, but a Quaker cemetery does exist in East Montpelier right next to Pinkham Cemetery - where Sarah Snow, wife of Freeman, and probable mother of Anna Snow Tabor, is buried.
That's the task - a closer look at the Easton, NY Quaker Records and finding any records that may exist for the Montpelier area of Vermont.
Thank you again. Dave
|Anna Otto||RE: Mary A and Mary L Taber|
I regret to inform you of an error on my part. The Taber graves are in the little cemetery behind the Short Creek Meeting House on the Harrisville/Adena Road. This cemetery is not listed on Find A Grave. I plan to create the cemetery and transfer the grave memorials to the proper cemetery on Find A Grave. I had contacted Rev. Smith and discovered the error which I hope to correct soon. Thank you for all of the wonderful information on the Tabers. I will include it in the newly created memorials at the proper cemetery a.s.a.p.
|David Jenkins||RE: NY Meeting Records|
Thank you for that Hazard reference. I didn't realize it had some Vermont meetings as part of its records.
I didn't recognize Ferrisburgh as not being part of the State of New York. I'll have to examine the chronology of events more closely to determine if Elihu Taber son of Thomas Taber/Mary Bennett was possibly Quaker and with wife Anna Snow were blessed with first child Isaac Snow Tabor in Easton, NY in 1792
|Anna Otto||Mary & Louis Taber|
Thank you for the info. I looked on your bio and saw you were looking for Mary Taber & Louis Taber. I will be adding them to the Short Creek Cemetery(1/2 mile outside of Mt. Pleasant, Jefferson County, Ohio) according to Rev. Lloyd Smith's hand written inventory sheet. Rev. Smith lists Mary A. Taber 1848-1870 sch. A-8, Louis Taber 1811/1877 sch. A-9, Mary L. Taber 1848-1870 sch. A-10 & infant Taber sch. A-11. I believe an error exists in the Mary Tabers' dates and one of them should be 1822-1910. Please send info to make this correction. The Short Creek Cemetery is owned and operated by the Mt.Pleasant Friends Church in Mt. Pleasant, Ohio.
|David Jenkins||RE: Elihu Taber|
I wasn't aware of that publication. Its narrative is a great insight.
|David Jenkins||Thomas Taber (Mem. #34657025)|
Thank you for establishing Memorial for Thomas.
I am trying to track down information on Elihu Taber, son of Thomas and first wife Mary Bennett.
Elihu was b. May, 1769 in Dartmouth, MA, d. 1828 in Montpelier, VT (per LDS), married Anna (Annas) Snow Aug., 1789, Rochester, MA. Elihu/Anna's son Isaac Snow Tabor is buried in No. Montpelier, VT, Poplar Hill, Cemetery.
I'm wondering if you know of any burial records/ location for Elihu or Anna. Thank you.
|Colin Chatfield||RE: Phebe Goodrich Green|
You look like my dream American of a certain era.
Now back to business. I have the 1870 cencus when Levi Green had remaried, Harriet ShimiaShimis who appeared to be 30 years younger! Not doing too well with her. The only reason of interest is Lovina Green, his daughter who married William Horace Chatfield. I have pictures of the two of them but lack a marriage.

I can ring worldwide free if it might help.
|Patrick Arthur Teater Sr.||RE: Anna Erts birth year|
I actually took all four sides of the monument, but since the other pics that were up seemed okay - it was just the one side that was not clear.
|Zim||RE: Louisa A Bown|
Not a problem. Glad I could be of service.
