RE: Thank you for sponsoring the John Hoy memorial
You are very welcome. John Hoy was the husband of my great aunt Mary Jane Fox.....who was the sister of my great grandfather John R. Fox. The obituary was rich with history.
Are you a relative of John Hoy?

Surnames: Jacobsen, Hopkins
---------Source: OWEN ENTERPRISE (Owen, Clark County, Wis.) 08/08/1946
--------- Jacobsen, Emma M. H. (5 MAY 1868 – 30 JUL 1946)
Mrs. Emma Moses Hopkins Jacobsen passed away at her home in Scandinavia, July 30, 1946.
She was born at Ogdensburg, May 5, 1868. Her early childhood was spent in this vicinity.
In 1881 she was joined in matrimony to J. S. Jacobsen of Scandinavia. Nine children were born to this union: Ellery of La Crosse, Kenneth of Philadelphia, Sydney of Waukesha, Bernard of Curtiss, Howard of Portland, Ore., and Doris of Milwaukee. She is also survived by thirteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Three sons preceded her in death.
In 1892 they moved to Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.) where they lived on their farm for more than forty years. Two years ago they moved to Scandinavia.
Mrs. Jacobsen was a faithful member of the Lutheran Church of Curtiss and a member of the Ladies’ Aid.
She will be sadly missed by all her relatives and friends.

RE: William Brizzee
I think he was born in 1789. The will says he was 87 in April 1866 when the will was written. He died in 1867. The stone says age 77. If you look at the 2s and then look at the 7 at the end of the death date on the stone you can see it is not a 2. Census records are notoriously inaccurate and if you will look at all of them you will see a couple that make his dob at 1789 or 1790. It is the same person.

William Brizzee
Hi there! I received your message about the death date for William Brizzee. The memorial says 1867, not 1862. I think you mistook the 7 for a 2. Thanks for asking though!

Peter and Peter and William

Interesting document, but no, I can't really explain it! I do know there are mistakes often times on records and even in more recent times. Though, I don't and am not saying it's a mistake either, just not sure. His grandfather was Peter I believe. there seemed to be a bunch of Mallory/Mallery males along the way.

Their suggestion:
Can you explain this to me?

This website shows Peter, son of Peter Mallery baptized November 30, 1718. The FindaGrave Memorial lists the father as William. Is this a different Peter?

RE: Wrong Revolutionary War Record attached to
You're welcome, thanks for the info! Do you believe this referenced Henry Miller was the son of John Miller and Elizabeth Vassall? It looks like the link may not have "stuck" on your first message? Maybe removing the http:// will help it "stick"? :)

RE: Wrong Revolutionary War Record attached to
Hi Heather, thanks for the heads up. I'm happy to remove the image... did you save a copy of it yet to put with the "right" Henry Miller? You're right, it is too easy to inadvertently merge people in the genealogical world. Happy Summer! Lee

Violette May Avery
Good Morning, thank you for your message. At this time, I can't deny the information that I have. If you have anything that clearly denies William and Clorinda as her parents, please let me know.

I will say that is a possibility, as William Avery and Clorinda happen to be very mysterious in the truthfulness of the items listed in the census records.
