RE: Sarah Ann Thompson Parmenter
George,
in Wisconsin, there are towns aka townships, villages, cities. Clayton in Winnebago County, Wis., is a township, not a village or city; there is a village in Clayton Township but it's called Mikesville. Sarah Ann Thompson's mother Susan Tipler is a member of the Tipler family that I have been researching for 40 years. The Tiplers came from Lincolnshire, England, to Wisconsin and settled in Winnebago County for the most part. I am descended from a Tipler daughter. Sarah Ann Thompson's grandfather was William Tipler Jr. born Lincolnshire, England, 1 March 1820. If you were to search for Tiplers in the 1860, 1870, 1880 US censuses, you would get many hits in Winnebago County, Wis. Another way to see that Clayton is a township in Winnebago Co., Wis. is to google old maps of Winnebago Co.; the county is a grid of township. try this site: www.historicmapworks.com/Atlas/US/9340/Winnebago+County+1889 and you'll see Clayton Township.

So, bottom line, I'm absolutely sure. Judith

Ellen Bruso memorial
George, I don't know who supplies the information in these memorials, but Ellen's birth year is incorrect.

Thank You
The Gravestone photo you took and placed on Rhett Chessher's site was Awlsome. You got down level with it and got some of the background trees and grass and it's just wonderful, one of the best ones I've ever gotten. Thank you so very very much George. Arvis
