|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, which, as a Captain of mine used to joke, is the only "island" surrounded by land on three sides.|
After nearly 11 years in the military, my wife and I settled in Moberly, Missouri where I have worked for the State of Missouri for 17 years.
I love walking through the local cemeteries and finding markers such as this one, which was for a young child. It helps me remember how blessed I am and how precious life is.

Thanks for the transfers. Susan and I have started on photographing all of Oakland, it looks daunting at this point. We have done 3 sections so far, but I haven't got all the pictures on yet. Those 3 small sections amounted to 1700 pictures, and a long way to go. We just finished Centralia's 2 cemetery's and added about 3000 pictures to them. Thanks for all that you do for the area on Find A Grave. David and Susan Sharp

Yes, I am a relative. Hubert was my great grandfather and I remember him well as I was nearly 25 when he passed. I would be happy to oversee his site on find a grave.

|Martin Wood||Teophilus Whale|
All the stories about Theophilus Whale were examine in detail in "Library of American History...." edited by Samuel L Knapp. Vol I. p.147ff. Published in 1836.
He recorded that Theophilus would never tell his true history only that he was of good descent and education in England.
His early descendants thought he was one of the Regicides (i.e. involved in the death of KIng Charles I) but he never revealed this to his family or to anyone else.
Knapp concluded that all that remained were "flying rumours and anecdotes". or "disconnected anecdotes and traditions.
Dates given for Theophilus' birth range from 1616 to 1622, but no one actually knows.
It was once conjectured that Theophilus Whale was an alias for Major General Edward Whalley who was one of the Regicides and who did flee to America after the restoration of the Monarchy in England. But Edward Whalley's place of abode and death are well recorded and do not correspond with those of Theophilus Whalley.
Edward Whalley was of the family of Whalleys of Kirketon and Screveton in Nottinghamshire, England.
It has more recently been suggested that Theophilus was really Robert Whalley, a brother of the above Edward. This has resulted in him being 're-Christened'with thealias Robert Theophilus Whale or Theophnilus Robert Whale.
Unfortunately for these claimants there is not one jot of documentary evidence to support this.
There is a well recorded 'Pedigree' of the Whalley family, first published by Robert Throsby in 1677 and later enlarged by Robert Thoroton (whose parents bought the Scrteveton estate from the Whalleys) published in 1790. This shows that Edward Whalley had only one brother whose name was Henry.
There is thus no evidence for claiming that Theophilus Whale was born at Screveton in 1616 or that he was related to the Kirketon and Scriveton Whalleys.
This is a good example of how, when proper evidence is lacking, family myths are born.
