Dwayne Crandall
Alden Crandall part 2
Ah... I think I have my answer. Emma Gorton Crandall was divorced by the census date in 1910 and later (Oct) of that year married Ed Linsey.

Alden Bradford Crandall

I noticed in your bio you listed mother as Emma Lindsay; however, I have her as Emma Gorton. My reasoning is the name given on the marriage license as well as Alden being in a Gorton family in the 1910 census listed as a grandchild. I realize that Emma might have been earlier married to a man named Gorton. Do you have any definitive answer? Thanks for your work on find a grave. Dwayne

Joseph Abair Jr.

I appreciate you linking Joseph Abair, Jr. to his parents Joseph Abair and Virginia Laurion Abair. Unfortunately, due to a potential conflict with some of the descendants of Joseph and Virginia, I deleted their memorials from Find A Grave. I won't get into the specific circumstances, but I won't go near with a ten foot pole any of the ancestors of these people. I have also deleted the memorials of many others in St. Patrick Cemetery for the same reason, even though I can legally post photos of their graves, which I have in my possession. Again, sorry for doing this but I didn't want to deal with the descendants of these people. But that doesn't mean someone else can't photo the graves of their ancestors and create memorials for them. It's just not going to be me.

RE: parents of Harriet VanValkenburgh

I don't have any information about this family. I did, however, find cemetery records for her parents and added them to Find a Grave. There should be church records for her birth, marriage & death somewhere. The only thing I can suggest is to contact the Lexington Historian or the Vedder Library in Coxsackie, NY.

Good Luck!

RE: Forsberg
Hi Betty

Thanks for permission re the photo. Just to be clear, I want to use both the Forsberg photo and the Decker photo. OK?

The connection is through Bertha Forsberg. 2nd cousin 2x removed. She was a Steckley and born in York Co, Ontario. Eventually her family moved to Manitoba, Canada where she married Henry Forsberg. Then they moved to British Columbia, Canada.

I think they ended up in Westport because that's where their daughter Blanche lived. She was a nurse who moved the US in the 1930s presumably for work.

Thanks again.

RE: Sophia Lavalley Gardner
thank you ... I will be placing a copy of the marriage record on Family Tree if you want to reference more information on the family can be found there under ID #KLBX-ZGV. Again, thanks for all you have done; I used so much of your entries to fill in gaps on this family! You are a treasure ...

Betty, I wrote too soon - I do have proof of Sophia's parents being who we published in our book. Whew! So I need you to change the Memorial entry and perhaps it would be good to know who gave the information George and Mary Farnsworth Gardner ... maybe that is someone else in the family. In any event, Charles Gardner Dejadon and Sophie LaValley were married in St. Joseph's Church 6 September 1851 in Champlain,Clinton, New York. Charles' surname is spelled Dejadoux. He is 30 years old at the time of his marriage, and Sophie is 19 years old. The ordinance of marriage is performed by Rev. Louis Tepic. Charles' parents are listed as Charles & Dedelaide or Adelaide (Perreaux) Dejadon and Sophie's parents are listed as Oliver & Amable (Langevin) LaValley. The two witnesses are Jean Baptiste Boudrieau (husband to Charles' sister, Adelaide) and Denis Sedetotte or Leverinoix. Also, on the back of the marriage certificate the parish priest has written information pertaining to Delima's birth (their first daughter) and the names of her godparents (Denis Sedolotte and Genievieve Deshormais); and pertaining to Charles' birth (oldest son) and the names of his godparents (Moise LaVallee and Marie Angele). This is all copied from our published book entitled "A History of the Family of Joseph Charles Gardner" by Sarah Elizabeth Gardner Johnson with Andrea Osinchak (that's me) and Kristina Eide." So we are still interested in who George and Mary Farnsworth LaValley are? Does anyone know? Thanks again - sorry this was so long but I felt like we should place our footnote-reference in full so others related could see this. andrea osinchak bartley.

Hi Betty - Always grateful and amazed at what people have done to make this Find A Grave so wonderful for finding people. I've got a question and wonder if you are related to my person or it was one of the ones you extracted from St. Philip Neri Catholic Church Cemetery. On the entry it states that Sophia's parents are George and Mary Farnsworth LaVallie. When we started this research back in the 1980's we received a letter from the priest at the church that gave Sophia's death as 1 February 1910, the tombstone says 14 Feb 1910. somehow with her age and we knew her husband's story of his name going back and forth as Charles Gardner and Dejadon and finding all their children; we never questioned a researcher's finding of Sophia's parents. We have a reference for her birth and christening as follows: "Eglise catholique. Nativite-de-la-Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine (La Prairie, Quebec) (Main Author), Registres paroissiaux, 1821-1835, SLC, Utah: Film 1,288,837 Volume 12, p. 155. Microfilm des originaux dans le Presbytere de La Prairie." We all know there can be people with the same name and I'm not sure at this point how the researcher connected this entry to our Sophia but her parents in this entry are definitely not the same as you have listed on your entry on Find A Grave. If our information is incorrect then we need to correct it and get the proof and search more for her parents. So I'm wondering where the names of her parents came from. Sorry this is kind of long, and I'm putting it on public message just in case someone else out there knows the answer and this isn't your ancestor. Of course if our entry is correct for her christening and parents names then we would ask you to update your entry on Find A Grave. Thank you so much again for all you have done. Andrea Bartley (on behalf of Sarah Elizabeth Gardner Johnson).
