Sarah Hall wife of Daniel Hall
Caryn - just a quick note about your memorial in the Dennis Village cemetery. For many years I thought that her maiden name was Doane. But in fact I recently learned that she was born Sarah Haugh/Hough, in Boston Oct. 15, 1713. Her parents were Samuel Hough and Margaret (Johnson) Haugh/Hough. She was married 1st to a Doane. Then she was widowed and married Daniel Hall as a second marriage. Therefore, her parents were not the Doanes. You will see in her marriage record - Yarmouth March 1, 1740 it says "Decon Daniell Hall of Yarmouth and Mrs. Sarah Doane of Chatham Designe marrage as enterd Feb 27th 1740: and ware published March 1 1740 /s Judah Thacher town clerk." She is referred to as "Mrs." indicating she had been married before. Hope you don't mind this suggestion. I have more info on this if you would like to discuss.

Hi Caryn, Thanks for the heads up on this memorial. I wondered about the last name. Also, thanks so much for posting the gravestone photo. I've touched base with Zoe who created the other memorial for him. Janis

RE: Claire B H Paddock
Caryn: I don't know why but I thought Claire was female. What is your husband's name. My father was Sidney Paddock, who was Claire's brother and Florence's brother.

Here is my email

Claire B H Paddock
Caryn: I just found this grave after finding in my grandfather's papers a small note for payment to this cemetery of $49.00. It did not identify who the payment was for so I took a chance and entered Paddock and there it was. Claire was my father Sidney's sister.

I see you are descended from Francis Cooke as I am. Also, from Mary Chilton. Both from the Britain side of my family. My mother was Lois Paddock ( Britain).

If there is no connection in your genealogy to the Paddock family, would you consider turning this site over to me.

Thank you

Norman Paddock

Thanks, I have contacted the cemetery for info. I did not realize that this cemetery is privately owned and not under the jurisdiction of the town of Middleboro ~ Dawn

Caryn...don't panic if all the changes you sent me at Cedar Grove come back as "No change" computer shut down unexpectedly just before I finished making all the changes, and the Find A Grave screen came back up as "No change" for 30-something edits. I did make all the edits, and appreciate your efforts at Cedar Grove; it is one cemetery I just haven't had the time to research.

Hi, Caryn,
I was searching on my ancestor, Lot Besse, and came across the Find A Grave link, which brought me to your photo of his headstone.
Am I to surmise we have a common ancestor? I found other ancestry 'hints' on this line, and finally found the parents of Lot, who were Lot Besse and Sally Delano! Mystery I've been wondering about solved by accident, as to where the "Delano" name came into the family line as a middle name!

Your photo is a great thing to see, and it's too bad there isn't better upkeep at the cemetery, so the middle line could be read.
I see several common lines we share on the Mayflower descendants, as well; including John Howland, on whom I blame my 'klutz' gene. ;-) (He fell overboard at one point.) Actually, we come down from his brother, Zoeth, but hey--stuff like that runs in families, right? ;-)

If we also share the BESSE line, it would be interesting to track, if not, I wonder if you would transfer that memorial to me? (Member ##48335950). If it is also in your ancestry, that's fine; I can just as easily add it to my listing of virtuals.
Cheers, Liz

George W. Wilcox
Family rumor is that George W. Wilcox was killed in the hurricane of 1938 when the marquee of the Oriental Theater in Mattapan, MA fell on him - killing him. I have not found any death certificate. My mother and her cousin have been told this story. Can anyone provide any info?

George W. Wilcox
Thank you for your post. George was my great-grandfather and I have had difficulty in locating him and his wife Jennie (Scrivens). You may be interested in the grave I found in So. Walpole MA at the Terrace Hill Cemetary - it is the grave of Jennie Scrivens' father John who died in 1881 (age 25) and his parents Thomas Scrivens (age 102) and his wife Jane (Pagington) age (79/80).
