RE: Charity Howard # 23939649
Hi Carole, I believe that Charity's date of death must have been on 18 Feb 1748 rather than the 5th. According to "Genealogy of the Waldo family" her son Jonathan was born on the 18th. Below is a link to that page.
Regards, Robert Blechl

RE: Eaton Sawyer family
Asa's dau Anna is Martha A Stuart/Stewart.
She in the 1850 as Anna age 20.

NH marriage record [4APR1854] shows as Martha H, but the 'H' is likely a hasty 'A'.
Martha's birthplace given as "Eaton"

RE: Sarah Donaldson Wilson
Hi Carole, thanks for the reminder, needed to fix that and then forgot and still waiting for relationships to be linked. My note should have said HIS father (James Wilson) not her father died at sea. Her father is 40913840 James Wilson born 1762/63 d 1855, and his father was the James Wilson who died at sea 1812 on his third Voyage from Europe running a British blockade at Norfolk. I have deleted my note and will rework it when I have time and once the links are done. Working with two different posters for the father and husband. Cheers, Beverly

RE: Edward Boggess 35996331
If you go to google and put in Early Settler's Cemetery in Bethel, Clermont County, OH you can find a website where you can look at the headstones. I looked at the picture and it looks like 1812 died I believe it said 1 day.
Please look at it and see what you can see. I have not been able to find him anywhere else.

Nancy O,
Martin Drew (more)
I just located an obituary for Martin that gives his DOB as 10 Mar. 1854. Search for "martin W. Drew" (Perry NY Record).

Added by Nancy O, on Oct 15, 2015 2:16 PM

Nancy O,
Martin Drew
The Tug Hill Cemetery plot map on file at the Cattaraugus Co. Museum shows a plot for Martin (owned by John Drew). I have added a note to the memorial directing anyone searching to the Wethersfield Cemetery memorial. I am reluctant to remove the memorial since he is shown on the plot map. If you can send me a private message with your direct email, I'll send you the file. If I have time to stop by the cemetery, I'll look to see if there are stones for any of the Drew's and will post pics (it's a tough cemetery to get into, though).

Your memorial 52532104

Your memorial regarding Capt. Michael Pierce and memorial at Pierce Park and Riverwalk.

Two people who were part of that fight and died on March 26, 1676 are of great interest to me - Lieut. Samuel Fuller (my ancestor) and John Sprague. I would appreciate you contacting me directly at my forum page email address regarding the source of the "Newman" text in the memorial. Although not an official cemetery, it is however, a cemetery location and need to suggest a specific map location be associated with the memorial.

Hoping to hear from you. Don Blauvelt, # 46932939.

Beatrice Drew 98557149
Hi, I saw you left flowers for Beatrice Whipple Drew. Do you know for sure what her mother's name was? I have seen it Hibbard, Hubbard and for some reason Maine records show it as Morrill. Also the date of their marriage is 1899 in the NH records and Jul 1900 in the Maine records. I am researching the Whipple line, thanks, Beverly

Mary Agnes Robinson
Hi, Carole; I'm researching the Joseph and Thomas Robinson families of Chase Kansas. Henry A. Bohrer married Mary Agnes Robinson, a cousin of my grandmother. The Robinsons married Winn sisters and I am interested in learning more about the Winn's parents. Hopeful that you may have information concerning those families.

RE: Sarah True d/o Thomas True
Hi, Carole,

I searched a few of my sources for Sarah True who married Elisha Drew, and could not find any additional information. The sources all list 1851 or 1852 as year of death. I don't believe in coincidence, so maybe everyone is relying on the same error when reporting her death.

David Seward
John Seward
Hi, Carole... Thank you for the information. Jim Kuttler and I thought we had the correct John Seward in the first edition of his book but he later found the Mason connection which placed our John in his correct place, identification verified by birth date. Though I have some information, you have included a couple new facts. I'll tell you what I know. John T. Seward was my great-great grandfather. His son, Oren Perry Seward is my great grandfather followed by his son, my grandfather, Richard Marion Seward. I learned of the middle initial (T) probably from the same source you found, the roster of Captain David Holt's company. I knew also of his two wives. I'm not certain you are correct with Polly's name. I believe, from family stories that her name was Mary and Polly at that time was a nick-name applied to Mary--don't ask me why. Albeit, family lore can be amiss I have learned. I do know that Polly was married prior to John Seward to a man named Pate. She had several children who maintained that last name, one of whom, John Pate, enlisted at age 34 along with my great grandfather, Oren Perry Seward (I believe at age 19), in the 78th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment. A new book by a gentleman named Steve Raymond details the history of this regiment in his work titled, "In the Thickest of the Fight." Oren Perry Seward was captured on November 30, 1864, and was a POW at Andersonville till the end of the war. Concerning John... He was shot by his own troop while waking the gentleman to stand guard. He received buck and ball in his right shoulder rendering his right arm useless for life. He accompanied the company to Erie, PA, where he served as a nurse and sugeon's assistant in a military hospital till the end of the war of 1812. I have several hand-written testimonials of comrades who assisted him in acquisition of a pension, some of the documents signed by John Seward. I know he taught school and farmed in Rushville, IL, (conincidentally also in Schuyler County but Illinois) then moved to Pontoosuc, IL, where he was a member of the Pontoosuc Independant Military Company, the actions of which are detailed in an out-of-print book by Suzanne Miller of Rushville, IL. This militia was instrumental in driving the Mormons from Illinois and likely burned the tabernacle in Carthage. Along with John Seward, his neighbor and step-son, the aformentioned John Pate also served in this capacity. John Pate died of streptococci on a river boat near Nashville, TN, before the 78th saw action (this detailed in Raymond). I have a photo of John Seward that may have been posted on find a grave. I will verify that and make certain it gets there if not already posted. I don't have a lot more information but hope this gives you something.

RE: Susannah Drew Patch
I'm from Charles Drew's wife's side of the family, but there should be Drew descendants still in Stronghurst. I'll ask our local genealogist and see if she knows.
