Would you transfer management to me, please. I am married to Marilyn Munzenmaier, Sister of Ed. I have created many memorials of her family and would like to tie Donna in with the rest. Bill Grother #47239674.

William Hardy 1651-1723
Good morning, Terry.
I just printed out William's probate. It is dated 30 Jan 1722/3. This means he probably died in Dec. 1722 or Jan. 1722/3. He couldn't have died as late as April, 1723. It's going to take me some time to transcribe it. I'm out of practice reading early 18th Century hand writing. :-) Also, his birth had to be around 1651. Read Thomas's will. The first will, written ca. 1670, states that William was not yet of legal age. Legal age was 21. This makes William the youngest of Thomas's children. The Great Migration Begins as gives Williams's birth as abt. 1651.
I know that you have Thomas as being buried at the Old Bradford Burial Ground. But, our cousin, John, who has done so much to clean up the cemetery and map it, says that Thomas is not buried there. John says that Thomas and Anna were both buried behind the house. I think that's the one on King Street. He also told me that they have preliminary evidence that Anna's maiden name was French. Did you know that Anna died the same day as her granddaughter Ruth? What a hard time for William. He lost his wife, daughter and mother in the space of 5 days. As common as these things were, it's still hard to fathom the loss.
I realize that you have a link to William and Ruth Tenney/Sarah Savory, but I would appreciate it if you'd consider transferring their memorials to me. William is my 8th ggrandfather and I'm descended from his son William by Sarah. Julie Miller has already transferred Eldad and Hannah (Savory) Hardy to me and I've requested the transfer of William and Hannah (Burbank).
Thank you.

P.S. I tried writing to the e-mail address on your bio and it bounced.

Daniel Hardy
I was a little surprised to see a second Daniel W Hardy - but the practice of recycling a name is common. I think he belongs with you.

RE: VERNON ATTEBERRY
Terry,

Thank you for the note. Do you mean Vernon #162826043? That was created by cmpress member #48548417. I have been working on the Groveland Mass Riverview cemetery with many of your Hardys - that may be where we have run into one another.

Regards,
Jack Parker

Another Hardy
Unsure what to do with #6011283. He is listed as "husband" to his right are two other names, one of which is Yvonne - his wife, the other is Ida Mary 1893-1965, I would assume a first wife, there is no memorial for her. I hesitate to make assumptions here, tell me what you would like done.

Regards,
Jack Parker

Hardy Children
Sarah B Hardy is buried with a string of children to her right. Same style stone and inscriptions. Many of them dying young. The dates don't make a lot of sense to me, they do not appear to be grouped or spaced evenly. I sent corrections, take them as you see fit. I did not note a stone for J.H. Hardy.

I see there are still two memorials for Nadine L Anderson.

Would you please ask the other contributor to merge theirs with yours or just delete your since it has the least information and no family connection.

Thanks

I see there are two memorials for Nadine L Anderson. You had created the first one but I wondered if you would mind deleting it because the other contributor has more info, an extensive obit, and family connections on their memorial.
See Memorial# 51632635.

Thanks so much.
