Bathsheba King Whelden (1785 – 1863) memorial (# 74181391)
Hello Dawn,
I noticed that you requested that the parent grave links be removed on Bathsheba King Whelden (1785 – 1863) memorial (# 74181391). This is your reasoning “Nathaniel King that is listed as her father, I believe should be the Nathaniel King born in 1727. As it is it is showing Reliance Clark as Nathaniel King Jr. (1751-1832)spouse and Bathsheba as his daughter which means Reliance gave birth at the age of 57. So is Bathsheba Nathaniel Jr. daughter or sister? Please correct the information. Thank you!”
These are two different generations of people.
Firstly the parents of Bathsheba were Nathaniel King Jr. (1751-1832) (# 39559111) and his wife Hannah Taylor King (1750 - 1824) (# 39559181).
Nathaniel King Jr.’s parents are Nathaniel King (1727 - ____) ( # 42407902) and Reliance Clark King (1728 - 1819) (# 42407995)
Reliance Clark was Nathaniel King Jr’s mother.
Nathaniel King Jr.’s wife Hannah Taylor born 1750 would have been 35 when she gave birth to Bathsheba in 1785.
The Nathaniel King born in 1727 should not be listed as her father but is in fact her grandfather.
Bathsheba King married Gershom Whelden (1783-1840) (# 74181419) around 1810
It is also interesting to note that Bathsheba King’s sister Hannah King Wheldin (1778 - ____) (# 39088900) married her husband Gershom’s brother Prince Wheldin (1773 - 1847) (# 39088861)
So we have a case of two siblings marrying two siblings.
Bathsheba King also named her daughter Thankful King Whelden Warner (1817 - 1882) (# 58776191) after her sister Thankful King and she named her son David King Whelden after her brother David King.
I have resubmitted Bathsheba’s parent links and hope that you will agree that they are correct.
Out of curiosity are you related to this family and person?

RE: Barkley Eakins Berdan
In Oakwood/Morningside Cemetery (Syracuse, NY) - in Section B, Lot 44 - there are only 3 graves (which I entered): Barkley, Edna, and Miriam. Someone else (J. Scoles Clark) entered Lillian and linked her to Barkley (Lillian is in a different cemetery). You can see a daughter Amy (linked to Lillian only) - and when you click on her, in her obit it mentions her mother was Lillian. So I suspect Barkley married (1) Lillian (and they most likely divorced since she is not mentioned in his 1965 obit, but she lived until 1974); (2) Edna Croft - she died in 1950; (3) Miriam Johnson.

I located obits for Barkley and Edna and posted them - maybe that will help?

I can't answer about the confusing 1940 census entries. But you said - "We do not find him with Miriam at all and he would have been married to her prior to 1950 since she died in 1950" - your statement doesn't make sense - Mirian lived until 1990 - he would have married Miriam AFTER 1950 (after Edna died). You wouldn't find them together since the census is only available up to 1940.

Thanks for catching the typo. Wonder why F/A/G didn't catch that he died before he was born. I thought they had a fail safe. Are you related?

Hi Dawn, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. From my notes that i have for him the Old Camden Point Cemetery was originally called the Pleasant Grove Cemetery and it was an adjunct of the Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church which was located at the site but which has long since been torn down. The cemetery has also been known as the Confederate Cemetery because six confederate soldiers were buried there after the Battle of Camden Point. Patty

Haynes request
I was in Oneonta Plains Cemetery this morning and took a photo of Lafayette Haynes(1875-1949) and Hattie M. Haynes(1878-1961). They are buried in Section 8. I did not fiind Lafayette and Mary. Happy to send you this photo if you would like. Also found a LaGrand Haynes and Waldo Haynes on same stone. I also have Haynes in my family.
