Fanny Gilet
Since she died in her 37th year she had not reached her 37th birthday yet. Since you are the descendant, do you know if she was born in 1788 or 1789? She would have to have her birthday in Oct Nov or Dec for the 1788 date to be correct. Thanks, Kristen

RE: The administration of Cephas Gillet
Any time. Remind me now and then, and I will go back and search again--you never know what will be added, and each search seems to turn up new information. Good luck,

RE: The administration of Cephas Gillet
Yes I did. It is marvelous to find his grave. I found your queries on an ancestry message board, and I wanted to see if I could find anything connected to your Roderic since I still have no idea where he came from--but since he was administrator for Cephas, I hoped to find something new. I will look again and see if anything else pops up, but as I am not in New York I am limited to some of the same resources you have. But I will try. Have a great day!

I saw you found that document, now there is an early Vermont connection. Maybe you can make sense of it, posted below.

RE: Alex Turner, Greenwood Cemetery
I sent you a message back in Sept.? when you posted a request for Elizabeth. I looked for her but I couldn't find her stone. That is why I posted that other photo of the Turners in that same area. I'm not sure if her stone wasn't put on her grave, but she is suppose to be in that area where Alexander is and their daughter. There are other Turners gravestones in front of Alexander and his daughter. I listed them in that message I posted to you last year. There is an empty space between Alexander and daughter Lizzie, maybe this is where his wife is. I will recheck again in that area when I go back for her. Carla :)

RE: Rodric Gilet
Have you looked in Canada? There seem to be some Gilet tracks there. It is a French name and occurs frequently in Louisiana also. His name Roderick or Rodrick may be an American version of a foreign name, so what would be a French rendition of that name? Those are just some thoughts. I will keep trying,

RE: Rodric Gilet, husband of Fanny Joy
Fanny was only 37 years old when she died, so it would be reasonable to think that Rodric married again, and perhaps there are children of a second marriage--if so, he would be buried near a second wife. What I can say is that Fanny's father, Abiathar, is buried in Jefferson County, New York in the Clayton Center Cemetery. I added the links to him and her mother Elizabeth to Fanny's memorial. Grandchildren of Squire David Joy (father of Abiather) settled in DePauville, Jefferson County, New York. So the general drift of this family was to move West, with some of them moving first to Jefferson County.

I will give it a whirl and see if I can find him--the census seems the best bet. Do you know any of his later travels? Good luck--we are cousins through the Joy family, and I am eager to learn what you find out.

Best wishes,

Kristen

Turner's at Greenwood Cem,
Hi, I just wanted to let you know I tried to find your request for Elizabeth Turner at the Greenwood Cem. She is in the book at the cemetery but I couln't find her stone. There are six Turner's in that same area where she should be, but I couldn't find a stone for her. There is Alex Turner died Nov. 30, 1880 aged 65 yrs; Lillie I. daughter of A. & E. Turner died Apr. 9, 1883 in her 17 yr.; William J. Turner 1846-1884 Father; Abigail C. Turner 1846-1913 Mother; Chester Turner 1880-1885; and Alexander Turner 1873-1949. I went back several times to recheck for a stone for her but still couldn't find it. Carla:)

If you would like I can transfer the Joys I have added to you. They really aren't related to me so I don't mind..I also asked a cousin if she had any information to add..
