Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy on the various branches ofmy family since 2000. I'm currently working on my paternal Cursted/Curstead/Custead, Custard line. The spelling Cursted and Curstead originated in Norfolk, England. The spelling of my paternal family name I found in Norfolk, England records are Kyrsted(oldest), Kirsted, Kirstead, Cursted, Curstead, Curstick, Custick and Custead. The name original meant place of cherry trees. It is Anglo-Saxon or Danish. Some branches dropped the r in Curstead a few others changed the surname to Custard. I hope to one day write a genealogy book on my paternal line. I'm of English, Irish, Scot-Irish, French, Scottish, Dutch, German(Prussian & Hessian), Norwegian and Morisco(Secret Muslim) Descent.

RE: Bartholomew Memorial stone
I found the stone you were referring to and believe this is what is engraved:
Eli Bartholomew - Born Arp. 15, 1808, Died Mar. 27, 1887
His Wives:
Portia Sherman - Born Aug 6, 1810 Died Apr. 27, 1845
Minerva Custead - Born Feb. 7, 1826 - Apr. 6, 1856
Hanna S. Moore - Born Jun. 5, 1822 Died Oct. 30, 1877

RE: Bartholomew Memorial stone
Hello Douglas,
Your message: "Can you transcribe the Bartholomew Memorial stone you put on Eli Bartholomew's Memorial page. I'm having trouble reading it."

Please provide the memorial # you are referring to and I will see if I can transcribe.

Best regards,
Bev Thomas Sexton

RE: Norah Samantha (Geelan) Moriss
Hi Douglas,

I found the birth date of 23 MAR 1892 for Norah Samantha (Geelan) Morriss on the Social Security Death Index.

I believe the Lawrence Gazette was a weekly newspaper, and may have published the article the week after Norah's birth.

I suggest that you use Google News to search for more info relating to Norah Samantha Geelan. There seems to be a lot of articles on the family from papers reporting news from Big Springs.

John Custead
Thanks for the update for John Custead. I wish I could check the cemetery register for you for his death year but I do not have that information. I entered the burials from a 1920 transcription, which I believe was based on reading the grave markers. There may well be cemetery records held by the church as it appears from the cemetery photo on Find A Grave, to be an active church, the sign listing times for Sunday School, etc. Too bad there is no phone number listed on the sign in the photo.

Mary Agnes Logue married James Hamilton
Their son James Hamilton married Sarah Ann Boyle
James son Edson Jesse Hamilton married Nancy Agnes Logue. Who were Nancy's parents.
I read Hugh Logue and Agnes Mc Collough's daughter Sarah or Sally Logue married Darius Mead and is our MaryAgnes Logue her sister? How is Nancy Agnes related?
Vicky Thank you.
