Thomas Goetz
Thomas Simmons 1609-1680
Hello, I just wish to ask if you found the dates for his birth and
death on a headstone, if there was one, or find it in cemetery records. Same question for his wife, Elizabeth Nash.
Thanks for all your research. Tom Goetz

Birth: 1602, Netherlands
Death: 1682
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Thomas Simmons (1602-1682) was born in the Netherlands.
In 1628, he married Elizabeth Nash (1609-1680). They came to Massachusetts in 1633. ( records are contradictory on this couple. They show Elizabeth born in Massachusetts in 1623 - unlikely - then Thomas coming to Massachusetts in 1633.) Thomas Simmons died in 1682 in Boston, Massachusetts. CHILD: Elizabeth (Simmons) Brooks, (1628-1687), first wife of Gilbert Brooks (1621-1695), married in 1644 in Massachusetts. Find a Grave #38414206.

Karen Hay
Elizabeth Henchman 1610-1668
Would you please add this to her findagrave page? I requested a photo and someone tried to get if for me and came across the following information.

Cemetery office confirmed that this burial is unmarked.It also reported, specifically:
The oldest surviving headstone in the Forefathers Burial ground is for Grace Livermore (Find A Grave Memorial# 18168775) and the cemetery records do not show any plots for colonial period unmarked graves. So if Elizabeth Henchman is buried here (and she certainly could have been), she does not have a headstone and there is no record of a plot location.

Thank you.

I made the corrections. I don't remember are you a Brewster descendant? If so what is your line to you?

Anthony Morse Sr's other wife
Hi again,
I think you asked about Anthony Morse Sr's other wife. See

Also, the 'First Witch of New England' article said Anthony's father was Samuel. I believe this is in error. It was written 200 years after the fact and I think the writer was just trying to make it more interesting for the reader.

Website on Morse Family
Hi again, You need to check out
Here's another SUPER good website about the Anthony Morse family history in England and the witch trial. It's 8 pages long. Elizabeth Morse was the FIRST New England Witch. Predating the Salem witch trials.

Joseph Morse 1707-1777
Joseph's 2nd wife was Ruth Warren. Ruth was previously married to Orloff Williams. Orloff died and left her a widow. That's all I have on Ruth.

Joseph's and Ruth's son, Charles Morse, is the only child I know about. It looks like Charles moved his family from CT to MI about 1820-1830. Charles findagrave memorial # is 55611904. You can follow (most of) his descendants from there.

I wish I had more info on the family. Unfortunately, they didn't even have a camera until the 20th century and what photos were taken, weren't identified. I got more from than my grandmother Morse ever knew.

Thanks for sharing what you know. You did fill in a few holes I had. :) Stuff I have to share is ...

An interesting tidbit I found on was that the family name used to be spelled 'Morss'. Joseph's father Peter's record is found under that spelling.

Anthony Morss Jr.'s (1631-1677) 1st wife was Elizabeth Knight. She died in 1677. I don't know of any children.

The earliest Morss I have found is Anthony Sr. whom you know already about.

Q: On Mary Barnard's memorial 10856998, it says, "Son: Philip EASTMAN husband/cousin of Mary Eastman". Can you elaborate on that? Did he marry his cousin?

Hi Again,
After poking around in, I can see you've been doing your homework. :) Would you share what you know of Joseph Morse 1707-1777's ancestry with me please? Thank You Very Much!

Kezia Cleveland Morse 1711-1758
We're almost related. :) After Kezia died, her husband Joseph married Ruth. I'm a descendant of Joseph and Ruth Morse. Nice to meet you. :)

Mayflower & New Netherlands
Thanks for the info on the folks from Langendyck. I also have ancestors on the Mayflower, in my case, John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley. But I have found it harder to locate info on my family in New Netherlands and appreciate your entries on those folks. Are you by any chace related to the Rosenkrans or Van Campens from new Amsterdam?

RE: Jonah and Jonathan Brewster
I had saved a copy of my suggestion emails in my email sent folder and have now forwarded them to you. I too am very interested in the Brewster family. In fact I am currently putting the info from The Brewster Genealogy book into my Family Tree Maker. I still have 340 paged left until I finish. I amde about 5 pages a day and so will take awhile yet. Once done I would be willing to send a gedcom to you. My line is from the pilgrim through his daughter Elizabeth. From her to her son Joseph Emerson to his son Ebenezer to his daughter Susan married Isaac Burnap. To her daughter Bethia married John Nichols. To her son Samuel to his daughter Susan married Joseph Bradley Hall. To her son George Washington Hall to his son George Washington Hall jr to his son Frank Eugene Hall to his daughter Bonnie Jean Hall married Louis Franklin Moody jr. Bonnie is my mom and all these have memorials on Find A Grave.

I think her husband was there also, but I'm not sure. It's probable that she was buried near him.

RE: Willis Cook
Elizabeth S. Cook's sister Sarah Jane Cook was my great-great grandmother. I believe that would make you my 4th cousin. Small world. I just visited the Old Callao Cemetery again this last weekend with my nephew. He is interested in the Civil War and wanted to see several of the veterans there. There is a Civil War Medal of Honor winner there, Oliver Hughes (no relation to us). There is also a P. W. Cross headstone in Old Callao that I suspect is some sort of relation but I have not been able to find any thing about him yet.

RE: Willis Cook
With his marriage (I found the record) to Sarah Hackler in 1846, I take it that with Elizabeth S. Cook born in 1830 that Elizabeth S. Cook would have another child of Willis & his first wife Sarah Croom (they were married in 1822?

RE: Willis Cook
Thanks much for the information. I had Elizabeth S. Cook listed in the family tree along with her husband James Slater Bonar, and also had Willis Cook but did not have her mother, Sarah Heckler (Willis second wife). Your help has enable me to fill in the missing link between those branches of the tree.

Nathan B. Morse
I am searching from my Great-Great Grandfather. His name was Nathan B. Morse. He had a son also named Nathan B. Morse,Jr. The junior volunteered during Civil War, came south, married Rebecca Summerall from Laurens, S. C. He never returned to New York. The junior died in 1919 in Cherokee county, S. C. When Nathan Jr. came south, he used the name MORRIS and MORSE. All of the children of Nathan, Jr. use the name MORRIS. When Nathan, Jr. entered the Civil war, he may have had the name MOSS.

I cannot locate the parents of Nathan, Jr. Do you have any additional information. Any information will be helpful.

My mother is the granddaughter of Nathan, Jr.
Thank you for anyleads............

Your Welcome, You can get the full size original and others under the Morse Tiffany names from my "Ancestry" tree. I do just requests here as my photos are 5 to 6 times larger than F.A.G. allows you to post. Its a real pain editing them down to fit. (And I add here only when I'm burnt out from working on my tree) I don't have to go through that on Ancestry so its a lot easier to add pic's there. I'll send you an invite.
