My photos runneth over, so it's time to share with you these memorials to ancestors, kinfolk and their friends. I hope you will find your family among them. If you do, be sure to let me know. We might be cousins!
Please send me any corrections needed and kindly cite bio and photo credits when you copy the material. If you have photos of your own to add, they are most welcome.
This member is now deceased Judith Baker, better known as Judy Baker was a distant cousin and one of my genealogy helpers. I met her for the first time near Newcomerstown, Ohio in 2014. It was so sad to find out that Judy died on April 26, 2014 with cancer. She was only 65 years old.
Lakin and Cintha Wells Thank you for the lovely tribute to Lakin & Cintha. Although I am descended from the same person as Lakin was (Charles D Wells) my line goes through Francis Wells and his wife Nancy Moffitt/Moffett/Moffatt. Most family members believe that Nancy and Cintha are related (no one is sure, however, if they are cousins are sisters).
Rickenbach Family Hello Judy, I think we are related. My great grandmother, Sarah (Sallie) Laneta Rickenbach was the daughter of Jonathan and Anna, as was Rebecca. I was never able to piece together Rebecca's history until now. Thanks for that. You can see my tree at Evalthaus44 at Ancestry. I'd be happy to make another ancestral cousin acquaintance.
RE: John Fenton hello, Judy, as to Phebe Wells, I do not know any more than what you have about her.... as for Mary Fenton...in the Clark family history that I have it has Mary born 2 Dec 1779 d. 2 Dec 1807...she and Seth Clark were married 23 April 1797.... Seth married 2nd Mary Baily Smith, a widow with one daughter named Betsy......Mary Baily Smith was b. 28 Jan 1775 d. 11 Mar 1857 buried in Altay, NY next to Seth who was born 5 Oct 1772 d. 17 May 1851.
Seth Clark came to Romulus, NY with his parents and family in the fall of 1802. so he must have married Mary Fenton in Orange Co., NY....and Mary Fenton died after their arrival there in Romulus. James Clark, Sr. and his wife Elizabeth Boughton Clark followed their daughter Elizabeth who was married to Timothy Green, son of John Green who also was one of the early residents of Romulus. John Green and John Fenton are both listed as early members of Kendaia Baptist Church, as is Ezekiel Beach who married Susannah Clark afther the Clark family arrived in Romulus. Mary Fenton and Seth Clark had the following children: Lydia b. 1800 d. 1800; James b. 1801 d. 1866; Moses b. 1802; unknown female b. ~1805; Thompson M. b. 1807 d. 1880. I hope this helps you, Bev
John Fenton hello, Judy, in your bio about John Fenton, you mention that he and his 1st wife may have had a daughter named Mary....they indeed did. Mary Fenton was the wife of Seth Clark, Sr. she died and he married 2nd Mary Baily. Seth was the son of James Clark and Elizabeth Boughton. James and Elizabeth and family moved from Orange Co., NY to Romulus in 1802. James Sr. died in Dec 1804. I belive he is also buried in Kendaia Cemetery due to the notes I have on his family, but there is no record of his burial. he was noted on the Kendaia papers found online as being over the cemetery project for the new church. thanks, Bev Clark White
Edward Gifford Hi Judy, We have corresponded in the past about Bersheba Jenney and Eleazer Salisbury. Do you have any primary or secondary on the parents of Edward Gifford being Abraham and Lucy Sherman Gifford? Thank you, Garry Boice
