RE: Lewis Latham
No, just decided to delete mine. But those numbers are how the records were recorded in the church logs.
Just went thru this with a similar situation. I had her by her 2nd marriage name, she had her by her 1st marriage name, slightly different dates, burial and a unknown.
It is called Find A Grave, not she died, guess where she's buried.
And I have seen a memorial where is says "burial at private family cemetery, location kept unknown to public". Kink of hard to find this type of burial.

RE: Lewis Latham
I went through the Parish records, and that is how they were registered. No book number, I assumed they was all in numerical order. And I don't know if or how they are related, I just documented all the Lathams buried in the Parish cemetery.
Some of the records says "son of", etc. Others just had names and dates.
When I did a search, Elizabeth didn't show up, possibly because she was a "burial unknown". In fact, she didn't show up just now either. Many times, burials unknown don't come up in a general search. One of the problems with the site.
I was just trying to document the burials of Lathams in St Mary and St Helena Churchyard.

RE: Mary McKee
Hi, I emailed you a reply and am excited to hear about it. Looking over the bible records in George Wilson McKee's book, I don't see the second Mary yet. Crossing my fingers.

RE: Hittson surname
I don't find another branch of the Hitt family that changed to Hittson, other than my own. My documentation is authentic and well-researched and it has taken years to understand that this may have been where my name came from. It is very typical that names changed to add "son" in Great Britain and Northern Europe. I have personal DNA records to authenticate and establish it. When my son's DNA is completed, I will present my information to the Germanna Foundation.

Can you tell me why so many of the Hitt cousins are trying to prove me wrong lately?

John McGee, #145809183,
I added the name of John's older sister, Nancy McKee, 1792-1864 and finished his bio and that of his spouse. I am not related to this family in any way and do these bio's hoping that a relative or descendant will materialize or someone that would care for them until a descendant is found. I am hoping that you will care for him and his spouse until that time arrives.

RE: Nevada Davis, 6056051
a little more info - from Ancestry today. Earl davis was born april 3 1906 in la Plata county Colorado . He died 1984 in Brush Colorado. His wife was "Helen" who was born 1910 in New mexico. They married about 1927, probably in New mexico since they do not have a Colorado marriage certificate. In 1925 he was in Kansas, but they were both back in la Plata county by 1930. They seem to have had only one child , Albert, born 1928.

RE: Nevada Davis, 6056051
I found her real name on a family tree on Ancestry. Albert was born Ohio 1866 and Nevada in Nevada 1863. Her father James Davenport died in Cortez Colorado 1896 and her mother in Mancos Colorado 1883. She and Albert married in Colorado in 1893 (not sure where) and all her children were born here. They had at least 5 children - Earl being born in 1910. Several (can't tell how many) of their children are buried with them in Hermosa. They were general farmers in Rockwood, which is just north of Hermosa. Albert was active in politics and a member of Woodsmen of the world. He also played in the Silverton Colorado band. There is a Davenport family still in the Mancos area - don't know if they are related or not, but suspect they are.

Abigail (Adams) Baxter
I came across your sentence, "Abigail Baxter and Gregory Baxter were children of John Boxter or Baxter." in the flowers/notes part of Abigail's memorial. I would like to let you know that I have Abigail in my tree, too. Your sentence above is not correct. Her parents are Gregory Baxter and Margaret [surname unknown]. Gregory immigrated to Massachusetts on the Lyon ship between 1630-1632. In late 1632, he married Margaret (her surname is rumored to be Paddy, but there's no proof). I have records saved to Gregory, Margaret, and Abigail. If you wish to see them, let me know at mnich5 at In the meantime, you may want to delete your comments at Abigail's memorial.

Adams Child
In the bio I do have the information that the baby is the son of Charles, but I will change the name to Son of Charles in the name. You are right, too many babies without names.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 20711144
They requested all obits to be removed. Newspapers clippings and bios are probably fine. Sounds like Ancestry. Com owns Find A Grave. Obits are public access info but my guess is since Ancestry owns the site they can make the policies. It's a shame because obits are difficult for families and genealogists to access unless they pay people to do it and I was doing for free. Someone probably complained and ruined the access and great info sharing for everyone.

Re: Jeremiah Swayne (120875178)
If you read about the town of Wakefield's history at Wikepedia, you will see that the old town of Reading or Redding, is now called Wakefield. The cemeteries they are talking about are all in present day Wakefield, not more than hundreds of yards apart from each other. This source

or do a search for the book:

Reading's "Old Burial Ground" now in Wakefield, Massachusetts, 1688

describes their locations and all about them, and lists Jeremiah Swayne's grave.

"The first burial place, of Ancient Redding, was on land, at or close to the present location of the band pagoda, in Wakefield's Park, north of Church Street. Here for about fifty years, was interred the remains of the early settlers and members of their families". Also if you look at Wakefield on Google maps you will see that the "Lower Common", where the pagoda is located, is on the corner of Church and Main streets.

I know it's confusing, but the area that Jeremiah lived in and went to church in, formerly called Reading, or South Redding, is now Wakefield.

I can change his death location to Wakefield if you like, but I don't think he died in Charlestown.

Re: Jeremiah Swayne (120875178)
Thanks for sending the additional info about Jeremiah Swayne. I have made most of the suggested corrections. I have one question though- his death record is in the Vital Records of Wakefield (then called Reading). Is there a source for his death that lists it in Charlestown?

Sabria Matilda Latimer Brown.
Thanks for the last two messages. Will file with my records. I have a copy of the will of L. L. Latimer and it shows several times this spelling for her name. Of course, someone else wrote it for him. The will was written and attested to in Kosciusko County, IN.

I've found many times that when someone writes for another, they make mistakes - even in public records. I've found the name Latimer spelled several different ways. The original seems to have been the French term "latiner," meaning someone who wrote or interpreted Latin.

We just do the best we can with old hand-written records, don't we? Glad to know of our family connection.

Re. your question about the father-in-law of Sabria (Latimer) Brown. (#113308451) I have no info on this man. My family records show that Elisha Kirk Brown was born in Maryland, 9 July 1825. (No county nor town.)

Thanks so much for bringing to my attention the period before Sabria's name on her Find A Grave page. It has been removed and I linked her to her parents, something I had neglected to do.

In her father's will her name is given as Sabria.

Also thanks for the work you are doing.
