One day while searching for my Weatherburn Grandparents We found the cemetery where they were buried. The Caretaker pointed to the ground and said "Here they are." There was no marker. I felt kind of lost at this time. I figured after all these people had done something had to be done so they would not be forgotten or lost to the sands of time. We have taken it upon our selves to build a family tree and history and put it where future family member's can find and appreciate it. We welcome all help in getting information on any of my family members we have over 10,000 names in my family study and enjoy sharing information. We have wonderful Conversations and traded info and pictures with family members we never knew. we would like to thank all of the people that have graciously transfered our relatives Grave sites over to us. My Corser/Courser family members number into the thousands and we are gathering information and pictures daily to add to our study of the Corser Family in America. We have started adding the G.P.S. Cords to the tombstones of the people we enter or take volunteer pictures for. This will help locate any grave without running all over the cemetery trying to find them. We feel this will be of help especially when the stones are flat in the ground, or the cemetery office is closed or has none at all. |
On September 28th 2010, I was in Berwick upon Tweed,England the home of my Weatherburn Grandparents. At this time I became a Freeman of the town of Berwick upon Tweed having been granted freedom of the town following in my Grandfather Robert Weatherburn's footsteps. I signed my name in the same Book he had signed in 1895 thats 115 years after he did,Just the site of his hand written signature, put my family tree into a totally new perspective. It was a great honor.
We will gladly transfer any memorial We have entered that Is not part of our family. We are very grateful for all the transfers of our relatives Gravesites so as to fill them in as complete as possible. Find a grave is a wonderful website. I have been with it since its inception and it keeps getting stronger every year. Al & Sandy (Cottingham) Weatherburn.

|Gene Shaw||RE: Margaret Reeder|
Eliza Jane Tanner Shaw was born after 1850, I have Lucinda Milner and Timothy Tanner married 14 Nov 1850. Mr Tanner is gone and Lucinda marries Beale (Bale) (Bailey) Shaw. Some say, mistakenly, Eliza married her second cousin William F., because she was in the Shaw household. William F and Eliza Shaw had three daughters Margaret, Mary Ellen b: 10 Apr 1872, Clara Belle b: abt 1874 and a son who died young. Haven't found Mary Ellen or Clara Belle. Mary Ellen married a Justice. Eliza may have died in childbirth with her son, but doesn't seem to be buried together. William F and (Hoda) Johoda marry 21 June 1877. William split up the children until his second marriage so Eliza probably died abt 1875Can't find anything on Tanner yet. Lucinda isn't on findagrave. Hope this helps. Any info you have would be appreciated.
Thank you for the link!

I found her death certificate on FamilySearch. I also found her birth record for her date of birth. I am only related by marriage. She was my 2nd great grand uncles wife.

I have started a site in ancestry.com and invited Othella to join if you would like to as we'll let me know. My mother's maiden name was Lockerbie.

While doing geology research for my own ancestary.com pedigree. I came across this site and found that you have documented my parents gravesite here and mentioned my nephew in the commentary under my fathers page.
I would be more than happen to assist in adding fidelity to these pages, or if you prefer, to transfer ownership if you would that would be fine too.

My name is Kay Bridge. I live in NM.
My 5th great grandfather and his family are buried in the Mt Carmel Cemetery in Franklin Co., Indiana.
Is there any way that you might have pictures of their grave markers?

Thanks so much!!
|JaniceS||RE: John G. Courser|
His wife Narscissa was buried nearby, but it seemed like there was room for a grave between them. I didn't see any other stones but this cemetery has grass growing over some of their stones. It looked like the Courser stones had been uncovered recently.
One of the Courser daughters married a Rath and lived in Walsh County, and there are Raths in the Drayton cemetery. I don't know how they are related.
Please ask for a transfer of Narscissa?
Glad to help!

I'm so glad you found the information helpful. I so appreciate having a reference to resources when they are available, it helps a great deal, and saves me so much time. I can also appreciate the challenge of piecing together families who have many members with the same given name. I have a branch in my family that falls into that same category!
As I mentioned, my mother-in-law, Henrietta (Phelps) Kenney has a great deal of information about many families in the area, and I'm positive she knows the Corsers who have or still live in the Webster, Boscawen area. I will ask her if she knows whether Tabitha could be connected to the Kenney family, and will let you know.
So glad the information in my message was helpful to you.
All the best,
|Brenda Kenney||RE: Corser Family|
Thank you, for the reply. No, I'm certainly not offended in any way. It is important to verify all information given, and I would expect you to want to be sure the information you are being given is accurate. I would do the same in researching my own family, etc. I hope I haven't contributed to the confusion by posting to the memorials.
Just to note...the pictures of the headstones I posted to the Corser memorials at Find-a-grave were all taken at the Corser Hill Cemetery in Webster, rather than the Beaver Dam Cemetery.
I found a Corser genealogy online, at this URL:
This shows Joseph #39 & Elsie (Elcy) Downing, and their son, Rice #86, and Sarah J. Page. It also lists the children of Rice & Sarah; Ursula, Joseph H, Elmer E., Joseph B, and Atherton P. Of course, this too is posted by another genealogist, Cheryl L. Wilkinson. Source information is given, and it accurately matches the information on the stones I photographed at Corser Hill, except for minor differences relative to the large headstone. All of the above are buried in the same plot at Corser Hill.
This information concerning the Corser Hill Cemetery was given on the Webster, NH website;
"The land for the Corser Hill Cemetery (See Map) was purchased in 1910 by the Central New Hampshire power Company of Maine in anticipation of a power generation project on the Blackwater River that would necessitate moving the graves from the yard established in 1813 at the original site of the Old Meeting House. That project never materialized, but the planned move took place in 1941 when the Corps of Engineers undertook construction of the Blackwater flood control project. A total of 774 bodies were moved to the new location. In recent years, an additional portion of the property was cleared to enable future expansion."
If you have any questions about a particular relative, my mother-in-law Henrietta (Phelps)Kenney, is quite a historian, with a terrific knowledge of families both in Webster, and Boscawen. She grew up in Webster, and has many relatives buried at Corser Hill. She always has many records for the area. I'd be happy to relay any questions to her, or search the records, if that would be helpful to you.
All the best,
|Brenda Kenney||Corser Family|
I hope you will find this message helpful.
In filling a photo request for Ursula Corser, I also photographed the other stones in the family plot, in case they weren't already added to find-a-grave. I've noticed in looking at the memorials that some of the pictures that were added may not be correct. All of the stones are in Corser Hill Cemetery, rather than Beaver Dam Cemetery.
The inscription for Elmer E. (son of Rice and Sarah) is on the bottom of the front of his parent's stone. Dates 1861-1937.
There is a small white stone, basically unreadable, to the left of the Rice Corser headstone. I added this picture to Atherton's memorial, as the TO seem to indicate this is his. There is also an inscription for Artherton (son of Rice and Sarah)on the left side of the Rice Corser headstone. Dates 1846-1847.
There were two sons named Joseph that died young.
Joseph H. is inscribed on both sides of the parent's stone. The dates read 1856-1865, and 1857-1857. The first, has a small stone to the left of the Rice Corser headstone, inscription reads: Joseph H, son of Rice and Sarah J. Corser, died July 27, 1856, AE 9 yrs, 2 mo. (I believe this may be the same Joseph H with the 1856-1865 dates on the parent's stone, and an error may have been made on the large stone). The second, also has a small stone to the left of the Rice Corser headstone, inscription reads: Joseph B, son of Rice and Sarah Corser, died Dec 27, 1857, AE 9 days. (I believe this is the Joseph H. on the parents stone with dates 1857-1857) The pictures on the find-a-grave memorials are not posted correctly.
On the back of the Rice Corser headstone the inscription reads: Joseph H. Corser 1786-1873, Elcy his wife, 1795-1847. Elcy also has a marker stone to the right of the Rice Corser stone.
I hope you don't mind the long message, and I do hope it's helpful.
All the best,
