Rachel Blood
Hi Cynthia,
I had processed your suggested edits some time ago. I will leave them as is because most people will find Rachel through them. But even though most people agree she is Rachel Gilson (including myself) there is still no acceptable evidence. As long as people realize that it will be OK. Hopefully documentation will eventually be found.

Rachel Blood
Hi Cynthia,
I am going to process the parent links and birth place you sent me for Rachel Gilson Blood but be sure to read her bio. Currently I have found no concrete evidence proving her lineage to Samuel Gilson and Elizabeth Shed. The Daughters of the American Revolution do not recognize these relationships. It is probably correct but no documentation has been found.

Josiah Tinkham
Hi Cynthia, Thanks for getting the photo for Josiah's headstone. I'm contantly surprised at how many relatives I had in the Northeast and so early on. I'm tracking them down one at a time. Thank you for helping me with Josiah.

Fr. Patrick Peyton CSC
Dear Cynthia:
Thank you so much for sponsoring my memorial for Fr. Peyton. What a wonderful surprise, after all these years, to know that there is someone else who thinks that Fr. Peyton certainly deserves to be remembered in all sorts of ways .... including to be found in Find-A-Grave's list of truly famous people. I must admit that when I originally searched for Fr. Peyton's virtual-grave site, I was shocked to find that it it did not exist.

I was a Seminarian with the English-Canadian Province of the Holy Cross Fathers at Moreau Seminary on the campus of Notre Dame University way back in the early sixties! One day in 1965, at the Holy Cross Seminary on Via Aurelia Antica in Rome, I actually had a casual encounter with Fr. Peyton at a social function while visiting some Seminarian friends there. I eventually left the Seminary and married in 1971 taking up a career in Catholic health-care as a Registered Respiratory Therapist.

Currently, in my retirement years, I am a Volunteer Associate Program Producer and Host with Holy Mother World Networks [ ] Catholic on-line radio station here in the Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is my way of identifying with Fr. Peyton's appreciation of radio as a modern day medium of evangelization.

I plan to let as many people as possible know about Fr. Peyton's memorial on

Thank you again.
Yours sincerely,
In Our Lady of The Precious Blood,

Brian Moccia

Ephraim Tinkham chair
Thanks so much for putting the picture of the chair on my 7th g. grandfather's site. That is such a neat thing to see. Is the chair owned by you? Where can it be seen?
