Bio and Links
Bio Photo My direct ancestral line in America begins with the Robinsons of Cambridge, MA, with William Robinson (1640-93) and Elizabeth Cutter (1645-92) being one of the first 56 members of Cambridge Village, MA and also the lineal family of Captain Richard Olmsted (1612-87), an original proprietor of Hartford, CT.


If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not,
Or don't you really know?

Some strange discoveries are made
In climbing family trees,
And some of them, you know, do not
Particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps,
You wouldn't care to know.

But here's another question, which
Requires a different viewó If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?

Re: Robinson-Hopkins
Mr. Robinson: You contacted me back in 2011 before Find-a-Grave days. And I just recently found your Find A Grave listings for our Robinson and my Hopkins ancestors. I just typed out a message for you but it's too long for this forum. I see that you left no personal email address here, and I'd like to ask you to contact me at my address filed here, so I can contact you with my somewhat lengthy 'letter' regarding our Robinsons and Hopkins. I'm glad to find you again.

Hi Douglas,

I was reviewing your Findagrave #3257410 for Henry Waite, and notice you have him serving in the 10th Vermont Infantry before enlisting in the 14th NY Heavy Artillery. I couldn't find anything on him in the 10th. Do you know where that came from?

Thanks for the clarification on Cleveland Beard. My only real concern was having my facts correct. I am attempting to untangle a bunch of profiles for Hartshorns on and, as I tend to do, got swept away by following descendants as far as I can. I was going through all the children of Joseph Beard and Susannah Hartshorn and thus was trying to attach as many records on to Cleveland's profile as I could find on familysearch's database. That's when I came across the record in Vermont Vital Records showing a Lieut. Cleveland Beard born 1720 and with a death date just a couple days off your 4x great grandfather's. Made me go back to look at the gravestone photo but I could not definitively make out the engraving. Glad I was mistaken.
As for being relative, I am but very, very distantly. Your 8x great grandfather, Timothy Hartshorn, was half brother of my 8x great grandfather, Benjamin Hartshorn. (Think I have that correct). My mother is a Beard also but I can only track them down to coming from NC to Missouri about 1810 so not sure if there is any connection to Joseph Beard.

In doing so genealogical work on the Beard family I came across the memorial you manage for Lieut Cleveland Beard (1784-1813), however I also came across an entry in Vermont Vital Records, 1760-1954 for a "Liert Cleveland Beard' birth of c.1720 and death Aug. 18, 1819. It is difficult to read the inscription on the gravestone in the photo provided by Bill McKern but it looks like in might have death date of Aug. 18, 1819 not Aug. 18, 1813 and "aged 99 years" not 29.
I might be completely mistaken but it is possible that this gravestone belongs to a different person than the Cleveland Beard born in 1784 to Joseph Beard and Susannah Hartshorn.

RE: Hungerford
Hi Doug,
I have been so busy since past year. Starting back up again. Did you ever get the books? If not I can scan mine and send them to you in PDF files. Where is Simeon Hungerford buried?

Thanks & Merry Christmas.

Rider Family - Geauga County, Ohio
Hi Douglas...I see you've posted some great data on the Rider family in Geauga County, Ohio. MY Lemuel Rider (1776-187), who married Patience Eldredge is buried in the Rider Cemetery in Geauga County. I've been searching for his parents for about 35 years, with no luck. Because of all the other Rider burials, I've been trying to tie in in with one of them....with no luck. By any chance do you see in your files this Lemuel???

Thanks in advance for any help that you can give to me.
