Joseph Morgan

Thank you for creating a memorial for my 3rd great grand uncle Joseph Morgan (30689575). I am writing for 2 reasons:

1) May I have your permission to use a copy of the photo you took of his marker in my family tree? I will give you proper credit for taking the photo in the caption under the picture.

2) Do you have information about Joseph's parents? If so, I would appreciate you sharing whatever information you have on this family.

Jemima Smith Brown Vermont

Jemima Smith married Seeley Brown and had a son
Smith Brown....who married Lucinda Curtis. They
are on the 1850 Census Adamsville, Cass Co., Mich.

1860 Census Smith Brown is enumerated with D. Fitch (Dorastas Fitch???) His sister married
Hubbard Fitch and they had a child Dorastas.
Bunker Hill, Ingham, Michigan for S Brown and
Dorastas..........Lucinda is not with them.

No further info and I "assume" Smith and Lucinda
Curtis Brown died in Michigan. I have not found
them or their graves.

A daughter of Smith Brown (Josephine Elizabeth
Brown Penoyer) has them buried in Iowa. I have
talked with her but she believes they are buried
in Iowa. Other children of Smith Brown are in

I don't know that you care but I do disagree.
Just info for you.....I HAVE NO PROOF

Smith Brown & Lucinda had Sarah...Benoni..New York...married Fanney Swan...Julia Angalina b.
Vt married Jonah Stratton b. N.Y
Josiah...Josephine married Ira Penoyer and lived in Iowa...& Harvey died in Michigan. Informant
said his father was Smith Brown...

I don't know that you want all of this information but ..... I send it anyway..OH WELL

William Underhill of Dorset
The Underhill Society's Bulletin of 1984, The ancestry of "William Underhill of Dorset, Vermont", corrected the long held belief that William was the son of Nathaniel, youngest son of Capt. John Underhill. William was in fact proven to be the son of Abraham and Sarah Townsend Underhill. Abraham was the son of John Underhill,Jr., who married Mary Prior.
The 1984 Bulletin is available from the Underhill Society and gives a complete line a descent from Capt. John.

William Underhill of Dorset, VT
William's parents were long thought to be Nathaniel Underhill and Mary Ferris of Westchester, NY. but research published by the Underhill Society in 1984 proves that in fact William was the son of Abraham Underhill b 1679, d 1713, who married, 1702 Sarah Townsend, b 1679 and d. after 1731. Abraham lived on his father's land at Wolver Hollow, Long Island, and was a Justice of the Peace.

Abraham's father was John Underhill, Jr., b. 1642, d 1692 and his other was Mary Prior, b 1652, d 1698. He was a member of the Friends Meeting and a farmer and owned a large part of his Killingworth land, including the Underhill Burying Ground where he and Mary lie buried.

John Underhill, Jr., was the son of Captain John Underhill, son of John and Honor (Pawley Underhill, born ca 1597 in Warwickshire, England.

Hope you'll be able to make these corrections!

Abigail Buell Porter
Linda Mac created tons of memorials in the wrong cemetery including Abigail Buell Porter. If you check you will see that she thought "Town Hill Cemetery" was the same as "Town Hall Road" cemetery aka Center Cemetery, which it is not.

I entered them from transcript because the individuals had no memorials, and then shortly thereafter started receiving edits like yours because of Linda Mac's mistake. I am going to place a message on her wall to let her know.

Dear Chazmanbr,

Thank you for all your doing, have done, and shall do. It is quite well. History is not only what was but is. Some want to write it differently than the factual and actual. Not you. Many kudos.


Please add me as your friend. on Find A Grave here now too.

William Halleck Brown and Polly Brown of Bureau Co, IL

Hello --we looked at this family together with the will of Levi Brown and all the nieces and nephews listed. Hope you remember me. Anyways, I was looking at your Wm H. Brown information and wondered where you got the information that he and Polly had two children, Mahala Brown Page (mine) and brother, Marvin. Marvin is new to me. Thanks, Rita

Laura Stevers/ Updike
Hello Chazman, I am searching for my Stivers family.
You posted a memorial for Deborah Stivers/ Vredenburgh buried in the Brick Church Cemetery in Whitehall NY.
My 2xg grandfather Isaac Stevers (changed from Stiver) lived and raised his kids in Whitehall. He is buried in the Bethany Cemetery in Truthville NY.
I have been searching for his father who I am assuming is Benjamin Stiver listed on the 1800-1820 Whitehall census's. Deborah's Husband Robert Vrendenburgh (whom you wrote some history about)is listed on the same census's. Going by Deborah's birth date I am hoping she is Isaac's aunt and you might know who her father is?? Thanks for any help. Laura Stevers. # 47732890
Deborah S. V. # 21578373
Robert V. # 21578048
