Jim, Thanks for photographing the marker for Anselme Carrier's grave. He is my granmere's uncle and I just started working on his line. What a great marker with all of that genealogy on it! Thank you for your fine work. I hope it is all right if I share your photos with my father. Being from Maine, I am sure he has not visited this cemetery.

RE: Relationship of Addie Warren French
DUH! I'm so sorry....I read the wife....too!!! I'll blame it on "Senior Moment". I guess I was just intrigued by the fact that the second wife was near the age of a possible daughter. I was in MA last weekend.....from KS....and will now have to make another trip back just to do some more research on the family......because of ALL the FACTS that YOU have put on

RE: Relationship of Addie Warren French you just assumed that the second name was also a wife? I was thinking that it could have been a daughter, so I'll just keeping digging for more info.

Relationship of Addie Warren French
Since my husband is related to Ruth A. Reed Mosher (his GG Grandmother--Mary Ann Reed Pillsbury was also a daughter of Alden Reed and Roby Sampson, I was curious where you got your information stating Addie Warren French was a second wife to Charles H. Mosher?

Hi again Jim,

it appears I asked too soon, I did find a record of him. His wife sued him for divorce due to desertion in 1877 and that, according to the article, he was living in Chicago.

Not sure where the Whaling Museum got there info but it appears more research is needed.

Thanks again!

Hi Jim,
I'm looking for information, death date etc, for Silas W Kempton's brother Charles HS Kempton and am hoping the record you found Silas W's death would also include Charles HS's death.

According to the New Bedofd's Whaling Museum's website, Charles HS Kempton was also lost at sea,

He was married to Susan H Jennings on Nov 7 1867 and probably died between 1867 and 1879.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer, Mj

The photos you have posted on Find A Grave #83384587 family memorial on 1/13/2012 are the exact same photos I took on 12/22/2011 and posted on the Westport Cemetery project. Can you explain?

Hello again, Jim!

Thanks for your message. How interesting that you were able to interview Mrs. McElroy! While her famous grandfather had died 25 years before she was born, she must have heard some wonderful stories about him from her grandmother and her aunts. (BTW, if you would like to add her first husband's name to the Family Links section of her memorial page, Col. Glasgow's is #115497875.)

Best regards,
