RE: Sharon Elizabeth Johnson
Hi Kati,

Would you please share the source of your information for Sharon Elizabeth Johnson? I have not been able to find information on Elizabeth Allen's maiden name (or Sharon as her given name). Thank you!

RE: Minnie Van Rensselaer
Thank you. I have still not located Georgiana. I did find this which might be of interest: > Historical Obituaries Prior 2015 beginning with “S”
> - s. pdf
> Siselburger, Anna d. 1 Apr 1872 70 yrs. Havenner Vault Sisselburger. In this city, on Monday, April 1st, after a brief illness, Anna Sisselburger, aged 70. The deceased was the daughter of Major Burton Benton, a distinguished officer in the War of 1812. Her remains will be taken to Salem, N.J. for interment.

I do know that Capt. Thomas N. Orton died in Charleston S. C. on Sept 8, 1854. This was the date of the "Great Charleston Hurricane" with 26 deaths. If you look carefully at the picture of his tombstone you can see he died in 1854 (not 1856) and was born in 1827.

Thank you for any help you can give. K

RE: Minnie Van Rensselaer
Dear Ms McSweeney:

Thank you for your response to my question about Georgiana Orton. I can find no trace of this person after the 1850 Pennsylvania Census and a brief reference to her in a grandmother Orton’s (1884) will where she is referred to as the daughter of “my son Thomas”. Can you tell me what happened to her?
I also have newspaper copy from The San Francisco Call of 1906 which indicates that a Mrs. Sarah Bissell, formerly Miss Sarah A. Benton of Salem N.J. with a sic correction to Penton. This article speaks of Sarah’s daughter identified as the wife of Tallmadge Van Rensselaer and her son as Thomas Orton from Cape Charles VA I believe the Rensselaer wife would be Minnie?
Thanks, k

RE: Selden cousin
I forgot to add this fact.
My Jonathan Selden, 1711-1776 married Mercy Ingram. Two of their children, Jonathan Selden, 1740-1808, married Mehitable Cady, 1740-1825 and Mercy Selden, 1733-1790, married Eliphalet Green, 1731-1777. So I have two different Selden lines.
Are you confused now. lol There is more but it's much later. Cousin Diane

Oh my goodness. So nice to meet you too. Will get back to you with my lineage. My grandmother was a Selden on her fathers side. Her mother was a Spencer. Both sides when back many years and then a Selden and a Spencer married again. Small world. Selden's have an amazing lineage. Your cousin Diane

I noticed you left some flowers on a find a grave site for Hulda Ann Radley. I ran across this site researching information on Melissa Noyes. Would you happen to know if Hulda Ann was previously married and if Melissa was her daughter? The Radley family is listed with Melissa in the 1870 census in Nebraska. Thank you for any help. Emalee

Memorial 50186478 Benjamin Kline

In researching my family tree involving a Benjamin Kline, I came across your memorial for a Benjamin Kline. Your memorial states that burial place is unknown. I found these memorials that seem to be similar to yours.


I do not know if we have the same Benj. is the same as mine as mine is married to Salome Schell.

I'm still working on it.

Happy Hunting!
