RE: Possible Cousins!

So I looked at your tree as well as read your mail. It has been my experience that not many of my relatives ever left the confines of the little mountain town, San Lorenzo. My 2nd great aunt, Barbara lived all of her life in the barrio Florida near the town.

Yes, I have an online Ancestry DNA test, but does not have us as a match.

For what its worth, it has been my experience that there a lot of people with the same names in Puerto Rico, so keeping your search at or near your suspect towns is important. Other than moving to the US, I find very few of my relatives outside of their hometown and then its the next town over.

FYI My Barbara's husbands name was Eugenio Lopez. I do not know anything about him yet.

Good luck in your searches. It can take a long time but something eventually pops up!

RE: Possible Cousins!

What do you know of your Barbara? Was she from the town of San Lorenzo in Puerto Rico?

Are you on Ancestry? If you are, go to the Bartell-Gomez Family Tree and see what you find.

I would be interested in what you find but bear in mind I really did not know Dona Barbara. If it wasn't for my aunt Norma I wouldn't have even known about her. Funny, but Norma did not know this but through my work with Ancestry I was able to prove I was related to "Dona" Barbara. I was able to share this with Norma before her passing last year. Dona Barbara turned out to be me and my cousins' 2nd great aunt.

Keep me apprised,

RE: Head Family descendants!!
I was really thrilled to hear from you. I'm very new to all this and I'm kind of fishing in the dark on this stuff. But I'm the youngest of Marshall & Ethel Head and it looks like you have a real handle on this. Yes, My grandfather on my father side was Thomas Smith Head who married Katherine Carroll. She was the daughter of John Wesley Carroll. He had at least 3 wifes. I was really interested in him since I never knew a thing about his civil war record. I found out a few things from Find a grave. The way the researchers put all this on a lot of the articles that are included in the cemetery report. Sometimes they don't know too much. But I joined because I started looking up my relatives and saw some blanks and thought well maybe I could help to fill in some of them. My cousin started a few years ago about the head family ,but I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out some of it . It gets hairy. Ha There is about 70 pages from the old days of England to now and I'm a lost cause trying to figure it out. Our family all started in Virginia and went down the mountains to Georgia and from there a lot came to Jackson parish. Our relatives are basically buried in Jackson Parish-Mt. Pleasant/ Brooklyn, and in Chatham. and Ouachita out at Luna cemetery. Some over in West Carroll parish at Forest and Oak Grove. I hope we can talk more and see how we can help each other with info concerning our families. Thanks.

Hi Theresa,

Just found your note to me on your 'grandmother's memorial. You're welcome!

Do you have the email address of the researcher in Washington state from Margaret's line? I would like to touch base with him again.

Thank you,

RE: Elinor Whitney: Eleanor (Arnold) Whitney 48875311
Her father was Thomas Bray, her mother later married Thomas Arnold. I believe she used both the names. The picure on the grave site is the memorial stone of the Founders of Groton, Mass, Memorial which includes the Whitneys. If You send me your email, I will send images of these if you want. Hope this helps.

Yes, I was confused at first, also. Until I found that Grosvenors did that, sometimes. When a child died it was "replaced" by another of the same name.
