Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started working on my Family Tree when I was just ten years old. My mother's sister got me started, I think today she would be arrested for child endangerment. I was the only 10 year old in my neighborhood with a five drawer government issued gray filing cabinet filled with files of birth, marriage and death certificates, census reports and Civil War pension files. By high school I was skipping school to take the Metro bus into downtown Washington, DC to go to the National Archives to spend the day in a room filled with big gray manually operated microfilm machines scanning census reports one page at a time looking for my ancestors. We're talking the mid 70s, before indexes, computers, Family Tree Maker or Ancestry.com.

I split my time between my homes in Los Angeles, California and Deposit, New York so I can do my historical and genealogical research.

I am very thankful for Find A Grave, all your entries have helped me greatly. I research not only my line but all the siblings of my line. As a British lady friend of mine so aptly put it, "your not doing your family tree darling, your doing the whole bloody forest!"

When I create a memorial, I research the individual and write a biography for them. Even when I am "doing the whole bloody cemetery!"

If I have made any errors in their history or have any typographical error, please let me know and I will gladly correct them. I am sure I have OCD and mistakes really bother me.

"The man who feels no sentiment for the memory of his forefathers, who has no regard for his ancestors, or his kindred, is himself unworthy of kindred regard or remembrance." ... DANIEL WEBSTER

RE: William Lovejoy Nesbitt
John there are just a couple of changes. It's Thomas Lovejoy not William. I am the granddaughter of Sterling Robert so the great granddaughter of Evelyn and William.not Ruth. Other than that it looks great. I've been working on this family for years and it's been a challenge. I'm in upstate NY also and have had contact with Bev Beard. She has filled in a few blanks for me. Norene

William Lovejoy Nesbitt Sr.
darn fingers. Con't. his father died when he was young and was raised by his grandparents. I think he might have used there name out of respect but changed it some.

I think everything else is correct.

Thanks for editing his bio.

William Lovejoy Nesbitt Sr.
John,
You have a listing for William Lovejoy Nesbitt Sr. 47658591. I have a few corrections for you. I won't say he lied about things, but he sure has been quite the brick wall for me to break down. He is my great grandfather.

1st he was born 29 Jan 1878 in Lambeth, London, England. He did come into the US from Canada. He married Evelyn Phelps, but she didn't died in 1913. The divorced and she also remarried. She died in 1935.

William's parents were Thomas Lovejoy and Mary Ann Nisbet. He was born, William Ernest Stroud Lovejoy. I wouldn't change his name but make a note of it. His father died when he was

I do not believe that Georgia died. Georgia is fund to be married to Atherholt who listed as in the household in 1800 I found James and submitted edits.
The Wilkes-Barre Record 1/7/1936 – Mrs. Georgia Atherholt 77, of Evans Falls died yesterday morning at her home. A son Leland Atherholt of Hop Bottom, two grandchildren and a sister Mrs. Luella Evans of Niagara Falls, survive. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 from Brick Church, Eatonville, Interment will be in Eatonville Cemetery
The Scranton Republican 10/3/1902 – Wyoming County Tunkhannock Oct. 2 – Among the guests registered at the Warren street hotel yesterday appeared the name of James E. Lamphear, of Falls. Mr. Lamphear was an old time resident of Tunkhannock and was visiting friends here, most of them being necessarily old timers. While living here Mr. Lamphear was engaged in the shoemaking business and his home was down in “Limerick” now known as East Tioga street only a little ways below the Montrose railroad crossing, His wife was somewhat literary and, under the nom de plume of “Colleen Bawn,” contributed to different newspapers. Many will remember some of her contributions to the Wilkes-Barre News-Dealer.
The Wilkes-Barre Record 7/7/1906 – Noxen – James E. Lamphear expects to leave in a few days for the Soldiers’ Home at Bath, NY.

Antoinette Lamphear Gravel Hill
I looked around Gravel Hill in Tunkhannock but haven't yet found Antoinette's grave. I thought that would be the end of it, but she keeps popping up in my other research. I am trying to put together information on County Cornet Bands and have found that her father and husband both played in the Tunkhannock Band. Both men appeared to be shoemakers and both men's final resting places elude me. In the band her father was known as "Daddy" Baker. I have now discovered, again unexpectedly, that Antoinette was a fiction writer for a couple of local newspapers. We may investigate her further in conjunction with the local historical society. Do you have any information you can share about her, her father, or brother?

Manlius Hulce
My 3great grandparents, David & Mary Rose Barteau/Bartow, had an adopted son Manlius, aged 11, in 1850 Colesville, Broome, New York. In 1860 he was living with them as 21 year old Manlius Hulse. Wondering if this might be your Manlius Hulse born 1835. Thanks.

RE: SGT JOHN THOMAS WHITAKER
The stone can be changed. They do it all the time. The problem is proving that they're wrong. But records being what they were back then, someone else might claim him as theirs with the spelling as it is...

Either way, good luck in your searches. ~Jan

The VA had him listed as:

WHITTAKER, JOHN P

DATE OF DEATH: 10/02/1863
BURIED AT: SECTION 28 SITE 2637

If you're a relative, they might change it for you.
