Bio and Links
Bio Photo

I identify as a New England gal through and through, even though I pioneered to California many sunsets ago.

I grew up with beautiful East Rock right outside my window at 239 Everit Street in New Haven CT and miss it everyday.

The past is where my heart is and I discovered the infinite joys of family research and history when I was very young. A trained medieval historian and art historian, I planted my roots deep in scholarly research also and methodology at NYU and Columbia University.

I believe in the adage that harkens to find truth in everything. Needless to say, my ancestral background has had a profound influence on me.

Surnames researching - Ogden, Augur, Battersby, Phelps, White, Vicknair, Boldt

Email with questions anytime, especially as more grave sites before 1000AD are discovered.

RE: Memorial Day
Thank you for thinking about me. I will be going to dinner at 6 PM our time with at least 3 of my siblings, hopefully maybe more. We will see.

I hope you will be with your loved ones.

Too bad that Great American Desert stood between Texas and California, it was hard for my Mom being separated from her family. I think we all missed something, not knowing our cousins better. I talk to Uncle Tom O'Brien now and then.

Happy Holiday.

If you have some researched and documented historical information that would be appropriate to add to each persons memorial please contact me as I would be more than happy to add that information.

Very historical people buried there and it would be nice to get it out in the public!

Memorial #: 53184276 William Sage
Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me the source of the bio for WIlliam Sage. He is a relative but I cannot find any information where he fought in the battle of Bunker Hill in the Revolutionary War , his militia service or any information on what the "Footit" House is.

Thanks so much,
Carolyn Dalton

Jack Clifford
I noticed you posted on Evelyn Nesbit's site.
I am no relation to Jack Clifford who was Virgil Montani. Evelyn married him in 1916 and he abandoned her in 1918. Would you by chance know where Virgil went after he left Evelyn?
Thank you,
Jack Clifford (no kin to virgil)

Find A Grave Memorial# 134448100 & 134448119. Grave marker has been added and an obituary to one of the memorials. If you are researching these two information is now available. Thanks for the flower, and stopping by.

RE: Thank you anyway! Re
You're very welcome. I would bet that John is buried somewhere in the churchyard or even in the church itself as was sometimes done. But if he had been buried within the church the crypt would have been destroyed when the British burned the church down in 1780. And even if it had survived that, it would not have survived the later fire which destroyed everything but the brick walls of the church.

RE: augurs
No, no Californians in this clan. We are mostly near Portland, with a few scattered elsewhere. One group is actually in Kyrgistan currently!

Your career as a medievalist sounds very exciting! If I had started on the family genealogy earlier, I might have been drawn to that, as well. When I learned that my Viking ancestors plundered Lindesfarne, I was both shocked and fascinated. :-)

I look forward to hearing from you again. Feel free to use my email.

Hello Nan. Apparently we are some kind of cousins, as we both descend from John Augur who married Barnes. This is my line:

john III Augur (1748 - 1827)
son of rachel barnes
capt. daniel page Augur (1781 - 1834)
son of john III Augur
julius smith Augur (1817 - )
son of capt. daniel page Augur
julius Augur (1873 - 1924)
son of julius smith Augur
Frank Miller Augur (1883 - )
son of julius Augur

Frank Miller Augur was my maternal grandfather. Frank and his wife Nellie left CT after nearly 300 years of family history there, in 1924. They packed up their six children into an open touring car and drove all the way to Vancouver Washington where Nellie's father awaited. It was a momentous adventure, in 1924. There are about a hundred of us descendants living out here in the wild west now and we are a happy crew.

Please jot me a note and let me know what kind of cousin you might be. :-)
