Find A Grave Memorial# 139191015 David Linnel
I have found David Linnel's will under the Massachusetts, Wills and Probate Records, 1635-1991 řźDavid signed his name as David Linnel, one L. David also states the name of each of his children. Each one spelt Linnel. Thank you.

RE: Joy Cousins (Ken Kelly)
I have access to those Mayflower records, but I'd love to see your Kosers and Wentzes.

Cousins in more ways than one
Looking at your list of family names, I find that we share Koser, Wentz, and Wyatt, as well as the Joy names, and Bartlett and Warren which are my Joy-Mayflower connection. My husband is a Howland descendant.

RE: Parents of Thomas Joy, #11974856
Yes, we are cousins. I am a lineage specialist and so a bit picky about generations connecting. I have only seen the Mostern parents for Thomas at,, where a lady names DavaLynn Joy asked to connect them, without any sources at all.
My tree is at with the Joy generations at

Parents of Thomas Joy, #11974856
Thanks for linking our Thomas Joy to these parents. Is there a polite way to ask for your source? It is reasonable to think he may have been from Mostern, as that is where his wife's family, the Gallops were also from.

RE: Benjamin & Lydia Joy Eldred
Hi I will keep an eye open for their burial sites. I suspect that they may be unmarked or possibly unreadable due to age.

Good luck

RE: Mary Clendennen Calhoun #87549321
Hello Ken. She was my second cousin 4X removed. Too much to trace,she married a Calhoun as well. However a fact is,also, two of my great aunts married Kelly brothers. I go cross-eyed trying to find origins, but I suppose I am not alone. Keep the faith. Cc

RE: Mary Clendennen Calhoun #87549321
she married Samuel Calhoun. He was my dad's first cousin and my second cousin, 4X removed. Their offsring would have my dad's yDNA. And I am feverishly working on having those descendants tested. They are all new to me.........

RE: Mary Clendennen Calhoun #87549321
Her husband, Samuel Calhoun was my second cousin 4X removed. Very distant. However,generations of direct male offspring would have my father's yDNA.

RE: James Bearse
Hello Cathy,
Thank you for contacting me. I've both made changes to your direct ancestor: James Bearse's Memorial and transferred management to you, as requested. I'm a direct descendant of James' sister: Priscilla Bearse Hall. So, we're appar-ently related in some way.. cousin. It's nice to make your acquaintance. Do you have a Family Tree online for review to share? Thank you.
Ken Kelly

Hi Ken, I don't know if I replied to this, so....I haven't put my genealogy on line yet. I'm descended through James and Experience's son James. If you'd like more info, pleas email me at, it would be easier to communicate that way.

RE: Moses Kelly #137621257
Dear Ken,

I believe he is my 6th Great Grandfather who married Mary Spencer through their son Matthew a Patriot in the American Revolution.

Sending you a invite to my Chesley Family Tree I descend through my Great Great Grandfather Thomas Boon when you provide an e-mail address.

I have not proved these lines they are a work-in-process.

Moses Kelly it seems died in his attempt to immigrant to the PA Colony. Mary Spencer widowed married widower John Means. To my surprise and my neighbor here (about a block away) in Cape Coral, FL; Mary Spencer my 6th great grandmother's new husband is my neighbor's 6th great grandfather a widower. I am still taking a look at these facts discovered in a Patterson Family Historical publication.

Thank you for contacting me the more the merrier in researching these records,

Jolene Chesley

Jacob Joy's parents
I declined your links to his parents as I will not link to an unknown burial. This is a grave registration site not a build a family tree site. Per the FAQ, burial unknown is only supposed to be used for 30 days not 5 years. His parents already are listed in his biography. I have changed the date to reflect that the burial locations are still unknown.

RE: Jonathan Hatch #5846925

I am not a descendant of Jonathan and Sarah (Rowley) Hatch. Due to your note I re-read, revised and edited the memorial to make certain elements more clear.

The reason why I sought to maintain Jonathan's memorial is to primarily provide a sketch and summary of the children that is historically correct, and not one based on some frivolous Ancestry, LDS or other form of internet tree. In part, I wanted to state the claim recited that Jonathan's mother was perhaps related to Jonathan's Falmouth neighbor, Isaac Robinson, as impossible.

The claim that Jonathan's wife Sarah died in December 1710 per her linked memorial by someone else is false. She was dead by Sept. 15, 1705 when Jonathan wrote his will.

Regarding his children, several married into my extended ancestral family of Isaac Robinson, the wife or husband to three of the children were my ancestral cousins, etc.

I am more than willing to share what I known of the descendant Hatch family, but it would help if you told me which child your descend from.
