|Bio and Links|
As a teacher and with a BA in history, genealogy became a natural outflow for learning the past. Learning of ancestors being involved with major historical events have made those historical events become more personal and alive. My wife, son, and I live in historical New England and enjoy the ability to visit many of the historical places of our country's beginnings as well as some of the oldest cemeteries. The photo you see is of my grandfather, Goduise Joseph Lagace, in the 1920's.|

|Cemetery Hopper||Mary Howard Whittier #23014265|
You say her mother died in 1844 but I just connected her to her parents and Jane Kincaide Howard's headstone (with Stillman) gives 1884 as her death. I don't know about Jane Lincoln. Let me know if I'm missing something. Thanx.
Are you sure of the birth date of 1799? The stone clearly says 1800. I know the stones aren't always correct, just checking.

Thank you for your input. I have added their plot location and changed Minna's name on Find A Grave.

Thank you for your input on the three Howard's in Elmwood Cemetery, Detroit, Michigan. I agree that it is most probable that the Child Howard and Roswell B. Howard are children of Joshua Dearborn Howard. This certainly makes sense and would agree with the 1900 census for Lusanna Williams (Kimball) Howard in Easton, Bristol County, Massachusetts, USA, where she indicates hat she is the mother of four (4) children, only one (1) of whom is living at the time of the census, June 11, 1900.
I have more trouble with Alexander Keith Howard, born about 1846 in Michigan. I do not know for sure if he is a child of Joshua Howard, but he is listed with the family (as Keith) in the 1850 census, so I am presuming he is a member of that family. If you have any evidence of whose child he is, I would be more than happy to consider it, but for now I am going to keep him as a child of Joshua Howard (1807-1868).
P.S. There is also an individual named Nancy C in the 1850 census and Mary in the 1860 census, born about 1843, who I presume is a daughter of the same Joshua Howard (1807-1868), but I am not certain either about her, but as I have no date or place of death for her, she is not on Find A Grave.

|Tim & Grace||Martha Howard Willis in Old Graveyard in West Bridgewater|
For the time being I have declined the edit to link Abigail (Tisdale) Howard (1692-1758) as the mother of Martha (Howard) Willis (1739-1792).
I found the IGI record of Martha Howard born 11 Feb 1739 in West Bridgewater to Ephraim & Abigail Howard... but I couldn't find any records supporting that this was Abigail Tisdale born in 1692.
There were at least 5 children born between 1722 and 1741, when Abigail Tisdale would have been age 30 to 49.
If you feel strongly about this being Abigail Tisdale, I am willing to transfer control of Martha's memorial so you may take the credit/blame for the information it contains.
Sincerely, Tim Cooper

You're welcome! ~ Her name was Rebecca 57643301. There is 1 stone that is face down that MIGHT be hers. (It probably is hers. The person who transcribed that cemetery was a town Cemetery Commissioner). It is face-down, and slightly covered with encroaching moss. One would need permission to touch it. That's a project that I won't be able to pick up just yet. Your request will be a constant reminder! ~ Chip

Actually I found two other memorials in various versions of her name and deleted two of them. I used readings from two printed sources to put up the memorials in Northview and there were some slip-ups.
