Bio and Links
I have been researching for 14 years. I have mainly focused on the Clement Corbin line. I have been collecting tombstones/headstones to add to my file. I have typed the entire 1905 book by Harvey Lawson into my computer, plus Bowen's History of Woodstock Connecticut. I am now in the process of editing the file. Any help is appreciated. I am always willing to help others as well.

Deborah (Howland) Smith
Regarding your email concerning my bio sketch for the first wife of my ancestor, I clearly stated that in effect someone other than myself claims that Deborah died on a specific date in 1665, but that I could find no extant record to confirm this claim.

Bob Anderson in his Great Migration Begins work decided to use an average New England marriage age of females at 22 and males at 25. These ages are greatly exaggerated but his own decision. Unfortunately, these average marrying ages are not verified by historical fact. After my study of nearly 500 of my early immigrant New England familes and their subsequent children, from the 1600s to 1800s the predominate marriage age of females was between 17-19 years of age. Hence, my estimate of Deborah's birth year circa 1630 based on her known recorded marriage date of Jan. 4, 1648/9.

Re: Sarah Corbin
I believe you are correct. The stone at the bottom reads age 41y 9m 11d. I have corrected & will send Dave Thompson on his site Richland County cemeteries to also correct the mistake. Thanks for letting me know.

Regarding the recent message you sent to me saying that "Margaret is his wife, not his mother" - I believe you are mixed up with which Carson Robert (son) and Robert Carson (father) you are referring to - As you'll notice upon looking at all the links, the Margaret (mother)(1835-1922) is correctly linked to her husband, Robert Carson Quiggle (1831-1916)and their son, Carson Robert Quiggle (1865-1936).
I have confirmed this is correct with info from other genealogical sources and info supplied from one of their descendents. Margaret would have been about 30 years old when her son Carson was born in 1865.
Let me know if you have questions regarding this Quiggle family.

I enlarged the stone photo and the death year looked like 1908 this time and I made the change. The birth date looks ok to me so didn't do anything there. Thanks for your help.
