|Bio and Links|
When I was about 8 yrs. old, my grandmother showed me the rifle, or musket, my gggrandfather carried home from the Civil War. She told how he nearly starved, after he was captured, and sent to Libby Prison, near the end of the war. All they had to eat and drink was chicken feed and dirty water. This would probably be dried corn, and most of the water, at the prisons, was contaminated, as they were overcrowded at the war's end. Food was scarce, especially in the south.|
She also said, his wife was an Indian that practiced medicine, and she disappeared one day. When Indians were discusted with a marriage, they just walked away.
My cousins heard the same story, and it was more then enough to get all our attention, and interest in our family history.
We did find out all about our gggrandfather, Albert Clark, but not much about his wife, Julia Goff, except she was burried in Meriden, Ct., and their fourth child died a few months later, while Albert Clark was away at war.
Julia's mother is listed in the Meriden Ct. directory, her occupation is listed as Vapor Baths.
Link onto Talcott Goff's page for new information, to do with our Indian heritage?
I wanted our site to show anyone interested in genealogy, how we went about doing our family history. Also, a chance to thank the many volunteers that helped us in our search, especially Jan Franco of the Meriden, Ct. Public Library.
I want to dedicate our Clark and Manville sites and related lines, to my cousin Cathy Carter. We started out together, but unfortunately, Cathy came down with macular eye disease a few years ago.
She was my teacher and followed me every step of the way, until her sudden passing on Oct. 11, 2003.

Barbara, I have a picture of Uncle Gene and Aunt Hazel if you would like me to send it too. I spent a lot of time with them in Upton at their home in the late 80's and early 90's before Uncle Gene's death. Aunt Hazel was my grandmother's sister.

You are very welcome! Salisbury National Cemetery is a very beautiful, solemn, respectful place and I was honored to walk among the heroes there.
All the best, Julie
You have a very nice site. I was happy to see your listing for James E. Thomas and family in Scott Swamp Cemetery in Farmington Ct. He is my 2nd Great Uncle. Thanks. Ann Kilduff

|Krisfamilytreesearch||Received More Family Information.|
I was recently very blessed with lots of Family Photos and infomation concerning the Minders, Manvilles, and Patchens. I have a nice photo of Emma Elizabeth Minder Patchen and Joshiphine Amelia Minder Clark together. Also a nice picture of Ella and her Aunt Joshiphine Clark. I have some photo copied pages from an old White Family Bible that has handwritten birth info. etc. inside. It mentions John D. Minder (from Alsace France), Mary Ann Mandeville, many Patchens, Emma E. Minder, & Eastman Manville Page for a few. It also talkes about Charles Alexander Minder from CT who served in the Civil War and was in Co.D, 34 Infantry from New Jersey who is buried in Marietta Ga. not far from us. He died at 19 from disentry. There are also many news clippings about the Manvilles, A full page (10 X 12)article on Horace Manville Celebrating his 100 birthday on March 19, 1895. If we can share any information with anyone please let us know. We are still looking for any history on Ada Frost White. We have many of the old bullitens on the Patchen Family Association meetings also.
I am looking for information on the Clarks/Minders/Manvilles. Arthur George Clark and Helmi Aho were my great grandparents. I am looking for copies of vital records for both as well as any other information that is available.
I also want to thank you for all the information that I have found posted by you on this and other websites. It has given me a lot of information about my ancestors that would have otherwise been very difficult to find.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org . I would love to hear from you.
I would be very interested to know if we are part native american. Like I said I am Jennie Minder Patchen Whites grand daughter. I see that after her Mother Emma Elizabeth that the Manville connection starts to come in. I would like any help you could give.

The Moseleys you have listed in Church St. Cem, Newington, must be somewhere else. the cemetery wasn't in use until after 1797.
