Bio and Links
I've lived in IL, MN, MO & PA. I've been working on my Family History, off and on, for forty (40) years. I've got Family Trees and Genealogy Posts on most Ancestry Websites. I just discovered 'Find A Grave' in 2011. Genealogy is my avocation, maybe closer to a vocation, since I'm retired. The surnames in my Lineage include: Alden, Andrews, Ayle, Bailey, Barlow, Bartlett, Bearse, Beatty, Beckel, Belz, Best, Bishop, Bottcher, Brandfuss, Brennecke, Bricker, Browne, Bruschett, Buhner, Burg, Burgenstock, Burrill, Calhoun, Carver, Chandler, Chilton, Clendennen, Constable, Davis, Diem, Diez, Dimm, Dornte, Eberling, Eckert, Eldred, Farmer, Frahm, Freier, Fricke, Gallop, Gamlett, Gebessler, Gift, Goodrich, Griffith, Gude, Haight, Hall, Harding, Hass, Hatch, Henderson, Howland, Hubner, Hudepol, Humphrey, Huston, Joy, Kahl, Kellerin, Kelley/Kelly, Kindt, Knodl, Koser, Krautter, Larose, Lauthers, Link, Linnell, Lumpkin, Lybrook, Manning, Mansfield, McCleary, Mueller, Muller, Mullins, Neal, Niedermeyer, Paulet, Phillips, Postier, Prince, Ream, Rider, Ripley, Rough/Ruff, Schadin, Shaw, Shelley, Simmons, Snow, Stratton, Studier, Swartz, Taylor, Tobey, Wagnerin, Walker, Walter, Ward, Warren, Watson, Wentz, Whelden, Whitmarsh, Wicke, Wing, Wispeinter, Wyatt, Young....

RE: James Bearse
Hello Cathy,
Thank you for contacting me. I've both made changes to your direct ancestor: James Bearse's Memorial and transferred management to you, as requested. I'm a direct descendant of James' sister: Priscilla Bearse Hall. So, we're appar-ently related in some way.. cousin. It's nice to make your acquaintance. Do you have a Family Tree online for review to share? Thank you.
Ken Kelly

Hi Ken, I don't know if I replied to this, so....I haven't put my genealogy on line yet. I'm descended through James and Experience's son James. If you'd like more info, pleas email me at, it would be easier to communicate that way.

RE: Moses Kelly #137621257
Dear Ken,

I believe he is my 6th Great Grandfather who married Mary Spencer through their son Matthew a Patriot in the American Revolution.

Sending you a invite to my Chesley Family Tree I descend through my Great Great Grandfather Thomas Boon when you provide an e-mail address.

I have not proved these lines they are a work-in-process.

Moses Kelly it seems died in his attempt to immigrant to the PA Colony. Mary Spencer widowed married widower John Means. To my surprise and my neighbor here (about a block away) in Cape Coral, FL; Mary Spencer my 6th great grandmother's new husband is my neighbor's 6th great grandfather a widower. I am still taking a look at these facts discovered in a Patterson Family Historical publication.

Thank you for contacting me the more the merrier in researching these records,

Jolene Chesley

Jacob Joy's parents
I declined your links to his parents as I will not link to an unknown burial. This is a grave registration site not a build a family tree site. Per the FAQ, burial unknown is only supposed to be used for 30 days not 5 years. His parents already are listed in his biography. I have changed the date to reflect that the burial locations are still unknown.

RE: Sarah Dix #139590356
Ken...Sarah Dix 's daughter Elizabeth married Charles Vincent. My gr gr grandmother was Malissa Vincent. The first Vincent Adrian came from Belgium about 1650. I havn't followed the Dix line any further than Leonard. I guess somehow we share the same family....Vern

Hi Ken,
Thanks for your note. I'm very new to family research; attempting to self-teach by trial and error. I would be happy to share my family history with you. Can you advise how we link up?

RE: Capt. John Gallup #114857534
He is my 11th Great Grandfather. I have a mostly updated family tree on under Rehus family tree. Let me know if there's anything specific that you need.

RE: Jonathan Hatch #5846925

I am not a descendant of Jonathan and Sarah (Rowley) Hatch. Due to your note I re-read, revised and edited the memorial to make certain elements more clear.

The reason why I sought to maintain Jonathan's memorial is to primarily provide a sketch and summary of the children that is historically correct, and not one based on some frivolous Ancestry, LDS or other form of internet tree. In part, I wanted to state the claim recited that Jonathan's mother was perhaps related to Jonathan's Falmouth neighbor, Isaac Robinson, as impossible.

The claim that Jonathan's wife Sarah died in December 1710 per her linked memorial by someone else is false. She was dead by Sept. 15, 1705 when Jonathan wrote his will.

Regarding his children, several married into my extended ancestral family of Isaac Robinson, the wife or husband to three of the children were my ancestral cousins, etc.

I am more than willing to share what I known of the descendant Hatch family, but it would help if you told me which child your descend from.
