RE: Updates in Brookfield Cemetery
Yes Pauline, Rebecca first married Obed. They had twelve children together.He died in 1779. She married Lt. John Muzzy sometime after his first wife, Mary Ball passed away, so that's after 1786. They had no children together.John and Mary had 11, but that is besides the matter. I see that things could get tangled up as Lucy married a son of Lt. John and Mary named John Muzzy [Mussey] and had daughters she named Lucy and Lydia!!

Reverend Daniel Wait
I found an 1870 census record today showing that Rev. Wait lived in Oxford in 1870, so it is more likely than not that he was minister of the church I attend (1869-1871). As soon as I can absolutely determine that they are the same, I will submit additional information and a photo of. Rev. Wait, and one of Mrs. Wait.

RE: Update - Oscar Rice in Brookfield

Can you transfer Wendell Holmes 64507405 to me? His sister is my great-grandmother. Still a mystery to us why he is in Brookfield. His mother and 1 sister were in Worcester in factory work and the other sister was in Boston. The immigrated from Canada after the father had died. Thank you!

RE: Your edit for Bethiah Nichols in Brookfield
Bethia (Miller) Nichols is included in the Ware Genealogly; Robert Ware, of Dedham, Massachusetts, 1642 - 1966, and His Lineal Descendants. Compiled by Miss Emma Forbes Ware, of Milton, Mass. 1838 - 1898. Published by Charles H. Pope, 221 Columbus Ave, Boston, Mass. 1901. I have a reproduction copy acquired from The New England Historic Genealogical Society.

Page 73:
"Bethia, Feb. 14, 1815; d. Nov. 11, 1865, Chicago; m. Rev. Washington A. Nichols, now of Lake Forest, Illinois."

I have not further verified her death date or location.

Lt. Albert H. Mellen
I am sure I am late to the game on this one, but I just ran across a grave for Lt Albert H. Mellen in Brunswick County, NC, where he died. You have one for the same person in MA.

Soooo, what is the ruling on the duplicate graves?

My husband's family has a marker for a son who died and was buried in a Civil War prison camp. But there is no grave for the young man in the family plot, just the marker.

Lt. Mellen is not in my family tree. Not long ago I was in the Old Brunswick Burial ground taking pictures of headstone art. Today I was going through the pix. One is Lt. Mellen. I looked up info for him on Find A Grave and found the duplicates.

Looking forward to your response.

RE: Johnsons in Brookfield, MA
Hi Pauline - My dates for Mary Abbott Johnson came from a book called "The Stowell Genealogy" by William Harrison Stowell in 1970. Mary is listed on page 406. You can view the book at My family is in the book too and I have not found errors yet. Gloria Barnes

RE: Rev's Henry & James Kilbourn
Rev. James Kilbourne was in Conn. until 1857, Illinois until 1867 then Racine. No mention of Ohio in his bio. Kilbourn book 1 p. 272 & Kilbourn book 2 p. 143

RE: Rev's Henry & James Kilbourn
Rev. James Kilbourn was alive on June 3, 1880 (census) in Racine with 2d wife and four sons, he was dead the next month, it's nearly obvious he was buried with family in Mound cem., Racine, other wise it's a good place holder, until a burial record can be located. No?

I'll get back to you on the Kenyon College question soon.

Thanks, Andy (1/2) Kilbourne

I would like to know more about his hard life. I have been thru hell and back and since his grave is on my way to work, I will adopt him. I take care of many soldiers in this area. I can't stand to see someone who gave his life for our country go forgotten. They deserve a clean space and a flag; at the least!

RE: Chester Weller photo
Can you tell me about him?

Added by Magnus Carrero on Dec 11, 2015 11:01 AM

RE: Phille and Joel Hawes
This is what I found in the Find A Grave Rules.

First Name
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial. Do not include titles or other prefixes in the First Name field.

You are welcome. There are other ATWOOD family with Martha. Let me know if you would like pictures of them. Also,I noticed you have a Nina Cole LAUTENSCHLAGER listed in your Atwood family. Pierce Hollow cemetery is close to me if you are looking for her.

Thank you for your response. I will get back to you on the dates. I am researching them today but ancestry isn't cooperating. There are Abijah Hydes born MA and I need to figure out death dates and sort out the problem.
