|A Egan||RE: Joseph J. Torrence|
Yes, she was his wife. I just connected the couple and Corrine to her family. I am working on all of the descendants of a particular Redford who emigrated in Va. in 1838. Almost all of the Redfords were in construction and farming from the 1700s through the early to mid-20th century. As they moved into the city, almost all were in construction.
I don't know if this is helpful, but Corrine's part of the family is all in three burial sections with members of the Redford, Kain, Phillips, Wade, & Waymack families. It seems that the majority of the Redford's in Maury go back to southern Virginia. A few are linked back to Henrico.
Yes, it seems like there are all kinds of family secrets brushed under the carpet. Do any of the family names I mentioned fit into your tree?

|Jan||RE: Tozer Connections|
I am happy to share info. Do you have the Tozer line back to Samuel Tozer, 1716-1786, Conn. . His son, Col Julius Rozer served in the American revolution and the War of 1812. I found DAR # All 5790. Your daughters can join the DAR through him. I also found the Kinney name. Guy Tozer 1799-1877 married Wealthia Kinney. Let me know if you need my info on these. I found it online , esp on ancestry.com. I have a tree on there. If you are a member, I can share my tree with you if you are interested. I knew Leonare jr. My Dad knew Leonare Sr, Aunt Rosie, Leonard Jr and Betty. He is still alive, age 89 and has a great memory. Mits nice to meet you

|Scott Butler||RE: Butler|
Hi Karen...so nice to connect...hmmmm...great grand niece eh? Think I would peg that as 2nd cousins, once removed if these geneolgy charts make any sense...I much prefer just cousins! I would be delighted to take on the Butler's, but my knowledge of them runs mostly on the 'living' side, births, marriages and the like from a volume of family history I happen to have...but happy to make updates where I can with what info I do have. Thanks cuz, Scott

Thanks so much for the pic. I didn't get to see her much before her death so this is really a blessing. Thanks again
|Joel Shore||RE: Edgell Monument|
Alas, the monument is not really any more readable in person than it is in the pictures (at least if you click on the pictures to view them at full size). I tried to summarize what little could be read in the captions of the photos. Even in the mid-1980s when the survey of tombstone inscriptions was done for that section, the only thing that they appear to have gotten off the monument was the "Charlotte, wife of Joseph Edgel; d Mar 4, 1840 aged 27y" on the north side. I was able to read a couple of the first and middle names (but nothing else) on the south side largely because I knew who I was looking for.
|Joel Shore||Re: Edgell's in Mt Hope|
In regards to your photo request for the Edgell's in Mt Hope, you might find it useful to look at the plot map for Lot 261 of Section O (which is available here http://nyrgs.org/cemeteryRecords/index2.htm ) and lists those buried in that plot.
If you want to find out more about any of those people, you can look them up in the Mt Hope Internment Records here: https://www.lib.rochester.edu/index.cfm?PAGE=3310
This website http://mcnygenealogy.com/cem/mthope-sec-o.htm , which is a survey of surviving legible tombstone inscriptions, suggests that the only surviving marker for an Edgell (or Edgel) is for "Charlotte, wife of Joseph; d Mar 4, 1840 aged 27y", but we or some other volunteer will visit the site and see what we find. [Since the plot map does show a monument as being there, I am curious what if anything is on it.]
