RE: Walter Garrity at Evergreen
The Arizona Death Cert shows 21 Mar 1933. See:

I would just make a note that there is a difference in dates.

Well, the mess isn't over yet. Mom and son spelled name differently but supposedly death certificates got amended. Also Mom and son both had first name Harriett/Harry.
I haven't figured it out totally yet but think it is best at the present to go with the spelling on the gravestone.

RE: Eliza Ellen Simonds
I was a high school math and English teacher. My family has been in Wood County since 1794 when Andy Race (69664895) served as a scout for Gen. Anthony Wayne. The Race Family was also from New York but chose the lake route from Buffalo. As a former history teacher you might be interested in (79144543) and (53953878).

One last suggestion: Henry Simonds, Oneida County, NY, 1840. There is also an Isham Simonds in the same county's 1800 census who might be old enough to be the father. My thinking is that Otsego is a local name in Wood County and the person giving the information may have confused it and Oneida. But I've been accused of grasping at any straw.

Happy hunting. Judi

Are you interested in the obituaries of any of the Simonds.

Fred S. Simonds
If Fred is in your family, I can send a picture of him as a member of the BG fire department. Judi

RE: Eliza Ellen Simonds
I would bet that the person giving the information for the obituary mixed up the date for arrival in Wood County with that of Medina County. The early immigrants from New York to Wood County usually took the Lake Erie route because of the deplorable conditions in the Wood County swamps. Was Henry from Oneida County, NY? Judi

RE: Eliza Ellen Simonds
Hi, Linda, I'm just working from records because I'm not related, but I found Eliza and her family in Sharon, Medina County in 1850 with her father listed as Henry Simmond.

Would you like Eliza transferred to you?

Find A Grave Memorial# 68297842

This is a duplicate of your page, but not in the cemetery of removal - in the defunct cemetery of first interment. I believe Find A Grave guidelines make your entry the "correct" one so I sent the above person a "dupe alert."

His entry has the info I relayed to you in case he didn't pass it off to you. His says:

>Jose Segundino Miranda was born on 30 June 1870 and was baptized on 1 July 1870, son of Dolores Miranda of Sonora. His godparents were Antonio Grijalba and Francisca Ramires (Tucson Catholic Diocese Baptisms, 1:129). He was buried on 3 July 1870 (Tucson Catholic Diocese Burials, 1:43). <

Due to being baptized in Tucson only about two days after birth, in 1870, it would not have been possible (except by train or very fast stage, which a woman with a newborn would be unlikely to be traveling on one day after giving birth) for the infant not to have come to earth in the Arizona territory? I believe the info, if it is correct from the other entry, implies this would be the case.
