|Scotty||I think you've got it|
Thank you so much for your prompt reply! Here's some info on the Minnie Taylor Derwent connection. Minnie Taylor (born 1857 in Illinois) married John Charles Derwent (born Massachusetts perhaps around 1846) on 1 August 1872. He was a Civil War veteran. They had three boys. John Charles Derwent died 17 March 1893 and is buried in the Coloma township Cemetery in Rock Falls, Illinois.
Minnie Taylor Derwent then remarried to John McCavett on 27 January 1898 per the Illinois marriage records online database. They're in the 1900 census, living in Illinois with two of her boys. John McCavett died 6 December 1918. I think I saw somewhere that he was buried in Illinois; not sure about that. In the 1920 census, Minnie is living in Illinois as a widow with one of her sons and his wife.
Minnie apparently died in 1920; not entirely clear since they tend to butcher the spellings of McCavett and Derwent. I haven't found burial records for her.
I think you're right about the divorce. Fascinating! Thanks again for getting back to me.

Greetings from Michigan. I'm trying to determine if your John D. McCavett is the same John McCavett that married the widow of John Charles Derwent, who was Minnie Taylor Derwent McCavett. The death date of 1910 doesn't quite correspond to the one that I have, which is 1918, so it may be somebody different. Do you have source information from which you pulled your John D. McCavett? Thanks in advance for any light which you can shed.

I am looking for an Asserson and I think it could Joseph Marcus. According to my grandmother's birth register, she (Joan Marjorie Asserson) was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on 14/06/1930 to Margaret Judith Ungerer and a J M Asserson.
She was told that he was from Belgium, had his own business in Port Elizabeth and died on his way abroad when my grandmother was only a few months old. I think my gran may have been born out of wedlock so I don't know how much of that story is true, but if you can help in any way I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you. Is he a Find A Grave member? If not, I'm pretty sure that one can't leave messages on behalf of a non-member.

You left a note on her grave stating she was your 7th great grandmother. Again, I ask, how are you related to her and to her son, Capt. Samuel Robinson? If so, we would be cousins and I always look forward to meeting cousins.
|Douglas Robinson||Capt Samuel Robinson|
How are your related. Always looking to meet a cousin. Thanks. Doug Robinson
