My husband, Rick & I are researching our family history. We live in Northeast Pennsylvania and enjoy visiting cemeteries where our relatives have been laid to rest. Along the way we sometimes take extra photos as time (and energy) permit. We have found Find A Grave to be a great help to us & hope that we can help someone else along the way. Some family lines that we are researching are- Cook/Koch, Rought, Pallman, Dodge, Johnston, Bender, Bahr, Corson, Hibbard, Forrest, Drake, Stevens, Fitch, Dickinson, Benjamin, Wierzbowski. Anyone wishing to use any photos I have taken are welcome to, but I would greatly appreciate a note sourcing them to me. Thank you.
Could you check this out? I found something in the descendent's index for an Oliver W Dodge will in Book 24 page 40 on familysearch. We would be willing to pay for the record. It would also be good to know if Oliver sold any land. His wife would have had to sign off on the sale. I have the page downloaded but I can't attach in this format. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
RE: Elizabeth Latimer Dodge I can use before or after for dates. I have used the birth of the last child or remarriage of the husband. Do you have any documentation, like a death certificate with birth date for the last child of Elizabeth and Oliver? A copy of Oliver's will? We know she was alive when the last child was born. Do you have a date of his remarriage? I thought I had this application complete but know need an approximate date for her death.
RE: Elizabeth Latimer Dodge I am working on Oliver's father who is a proven patriot. The older applications do not have enough information on Elizabeth by current standards. Your husband would be eligible for SAR on his service. Dianne
Elizabeth Latimer Dodge I am helping someone with a DAR application. Can you provide me with a source for the birth and death dates for her? The stone is not readable (at least by me) and I would love to have more info. Thanks so much for all you do.
E Wellie I found a duplicate profile for him... 148142833 I left that guy a msg about it.
I found EW in the 1920 census and his name was listed as Wellington E. Not that census takers were ever accurate in their name transcription! He was living with his sister Amy D and no one else in the household. Also looked at another census and found Jerusha's maiden name as Forrest, so more than 1 official document with her maiden name.
RE: Jerusha Mitchell She does have one. LOL. I get so lost sometimes. Anyway, it's already posted on her page. her # - 157354842. And the photo of her is one I have of her. I see she has a sibling Erastus. So, will add him and see what there is to see for him!
RE: Jerusha Mitchell Hey there! I don't have Jerusha and Erastus having a son Erastus. They have a grandson through Amy Mitchell. But with that being the maternal side of the family, I don't have hard copies to confirm or refute it. I wish I could help you with that! Here is what I found http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Forrest-778 I think they made a bad assumption of sex since I have multiple jerusha's and they're all female. I you are related to the Mitchells, I have photos of later generations. Some were labeled, some weren't, but am willing to share them with you. I'll post the death certificate to Jerusha's profile. The daughter doesn't have a profile that I can find.
RE: Jerusha Mitchell Yes. She's my greatx2 grandmother on my father's father's side. I only edit pedigree and their siblings w/ spouses. If I tried to do all of thwir kids too, OMG, hell to the no. LOL. Some day, I hope to photograph surrounding graves, but it'll be at least another year.
