RE: Eleanor Choate "Jonas' reputation as a man of good character, kindness, and integrity brought such support in the petition from the community. Whether or not he fired at the soldiers really isn't the point, but that the community demonstrated such support. Interesting also that he remarried Eleanor Choate (the "blooming buxom lass"), who is the sister of Rufus Choate, who married Jonas' daughter Amanda."
RE: Link Dale, Thanks for the information. I am sure it will come in handy. I have found a couple more of my mothers brother and sisters in South Carolina. I saw the grave site you added, the pictures look really good. I noticed that at Arlington Park there is around 8000 graves submitted but only around 1500 with pictures. It seems that a lot of people just submit some info without any pictures. I have found a lots of mistakes on the dates. I will be going back. I intend to make sure all the graves in the Ascension section have been submitted and have pictures. There are a lots of grave in that section. I'll be seeing you. It was nice to meet you.
