RE: Charles Dickinson
Hi Jane,

Thanks for your reply! Now you will be cursed with a longer response. :-) Hope you don't mind.

I think I'm a 7th great grandson. My great grandmother was Fannie Dickinson, the daughter of Samuel Dickinson. He and his father Amos settled in Steuben County, New York sometime before 1820. That much is absolutely certain.

As an aside, and not important, the Samuel Dickinson family and Major Jones family had all sorts of connections in Addison, NY. It's kind of funny.

-- Major Jones (my great grandfather) married Fannie
-- Major's sister Ann married Fannie's uncle, the wonderfully named Amos Benjamin Coomer Dickinson (ABC Dickinson)
-- Major's daughter Anna Eliza married Samuel Dickinson's son, Samuel Dickinson, Jr.

Major Jones and Samuel Dickinson lived across the road from each other. The Joneses on the Rathbone side and the Dickinsons on the Addison side of the town line which ran down the middle of the road. They were farmers.

My g-g-grandfather Samuel Dickinson (1798-1886) was the son of
Amos Dickinson (1774-1850), born in Rensselaer County, NY
son of
Samuel Dickinson (1750-1824) born in Columbia County, NY
son of
Christopher Dickinson (1728-1814) born in Narragansett, RI
son of
Samuel Dickinson of Narragansett son of
Charles Dickinson

I appreciated your Findagrave entry because you had clearly done your homework. :-) Showing that Charles could not have been tied to the Mayflower family mentioned in the entry. I love good research! I'm a researcher for a consulting firm so I'm kind of the same way, although I am guilty of occasionally 'stealing' stuff from someone else's tree when there are no records, but I do try to revisit them to see if there is any plausible support for the relationship in the form of documentation. A healthy degree of skepticism is required on

Your entry on Charles D was very useful because I had been checking out Charles Dickinson and noticed some people had parents for him, and I didn't, which eventually led me to your wonderful entry.

Again, thanks very much!

Hello Jane, in regards to Congressman Denning's portrait I posted on his memorial I acquired it from
Wikipedia. (link is below) The image is public domain, so it's opened to everyone. Thanks,

Chappells and Heath in Nepeuskun Cemetery, WI
I added photos to several of your memorials in Nepeuskun Cemetery, Winnebago Co, WI. There is a wide shot of the area they are buried in with a caption on it explaining who is buried where.

I hope these photos are beneficial to you in your research.

RE: Pauline Chappell

I am going to remove the parents. The rest is absolutely correct. I don't have time to research further since we are vacationing and have very limited time. With parents removed the memorial will correct.

RE: Pauline Chappell
Her dates are already correct and that is the same person. The M. in the one record is the initial of her maiden name, which is common , but causes confusion. After viewing the records I know they are the same person. I will add her middle name, everything else is correct.

I declined linking the father edit as it would have unlinked the mother.

RE: Chappells at Riverside

We walked and photographed the entire cemetery last fall, but that does not mean he is not there. Maybe he did not have a marker. If you have an obit that names that cemetery I would go ahead and add him with a note stating his obit lists that cemetery. We did not have a transcription, we went by our photos .

Minnie Chappell Young
Hi Jane,
I "found" Minnie Chappel Young and already suggested links and updated birth/death info, but thought you might want to request management:
