Re: Mary Palmer Brown
I am touching base with you again about Mary Palmer, she would been my great-aunt - my grandfather was one of Blaney Jr.'s children. You can contact me via email (email.carol @ as I would love a copy of the group photo used for Mary and Niles Miller Brown's pages and wondering/hoping you may have some photos of her siblings (Isabell, married Sherman Connerly, Jane, married Welsh, and Blaney Jr. ) since they visited her several times according to newspaper clippings.

Related Via Mary Palmer Miller's Brother
Hello! I've been researching Blaney Palmer Jr (# 112827033), who would be my great-grandfather, and his second wife, Flora Belle Hess. It appears, through some sharings of various Palmer relatives, he remained close to his sisters and even visited Mary Palmer Miller after her family moved West. Would love to see the entire family photo scan of Mary Palmer & Niles Miller Brown that you shared portions of on their memorial pages. These are helping us piece together what my great-grandfather may have looked like as, so far, I've not uncovered any photos of him or his parents. Thank you for sharing what you have on FindAGrave so far as it has helped me on my research of this branch.

Joseph England and Martha Adams
Hello, I am a descendant of Joseph England (son of William England and Susie Ward England)and 3rd wife Martha Adams. I have found the information about William and Susie dying at Cadron Creek , but never had a link to when Joseph arrived in Indian Territory, or even if he traveled with his parents. Your information may fill in that missing information for me. Do you have any documentation or records for this?
Thank you, Kathleen Cowles Hawes

Pls ignore [below]: "Perhaps you'd like to add this vintage BIO info to your memorial? No credits to me, pls (all is Public Domain info)." That sentence was part of note posted for Gus Pendleton...

Jospeh Pendleton 1661-1706
Hi Bren! Have been doing a lot of research on the Pendleton and Clark(e) families they relate (collaterally) to: Hollister, Andrews, and Resseguie (formerly of RI., NY. and VT.) having emigrated to Wisconin in the 1830's and 1840's. Perhaps you'd like to add this "vintage" BIO info to your memorial? No credits to me, pls (all is Public Domain info). -RK.
BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH: Joseph Pendleton (son of Capt. James, of Major Brian), was born at Sudbury, Mass. 29 December, 1661*, and died at Westerly, RI. 18 September, 1706. On the 17th of September 1679, Joseph Pendleton took the oath of allegiance to the colony of Rhode Island, Westerly, on the same day that his father became a citizen there. In 1697, he was constable of the town and was involved with father in 1699 in the trouble with Gov. Cranston. In 1698, 1699, 1704, and 1705, he was chosen to apportion the rates (assessor of taxes). 2 February 1698/99 Joseph Pendleton of Faversham, alias Westerly, RI. deeds to Nicholas "Moorey", two acres of land Portsmouth, NH. "One acre of which was given to my brother James Pendleton" (Rockingham Co., NH., Deeds, ix, 321). Three days later, Joseph gave another deed to Nicholas "Moorey" of Taunton, Mass., for two acres of land lying on the Great Island in Portsmouth. "One acre that was Philip Eussel's in his life time, the other was given to my brother James Pendleton." (Ibid., ii, 55.) These deeds appear to have been for the same property. On the 24th of May, 1702, Joseph Pendleton was admitted to First Church of Stonington (Ch. Rec.). 25th of June, 1701, he was elected Town Clerk of Westerly, for one year. He was again elected on the 25th of June, 1702, and re-elected the four years following. In 1703, he was styled Ensign. He was a grand juryman in 1706 (West. Rec.). Joseph's handwriting, which appears in the old town records in these years, is remarkably legible; his penmanship was far in advance of that of the average Town Clerk of those days. Joseph Pendleton married (1st) at Westerly, RI., 8 July, 1696 {to} Deborah Minor, daughter of Ephraim and Hannah Avery Minor. She died, 8 September, 1697 (West. Rec.). He married (2nd) at Westerly, 11 December, 1700 {to} Patience Potts, daughter of William, 12 August, 1683. Not long after Joseph's death she married (2nd), as his second wife, 28 April, 1707 {to} Samuel Rogers. The following 8th of June, Samuel Rogers gave bond to administer estate of Joseph Pendleton, and a draft of 202 acres was laid out to him, "In the behalf of Joshua Pendleton, his son-in-law [step-son], it being part of ye Land held in possession by Capt. James Pendleton deceased." (W. L. E., ii, 33.). On the 26th of April 1731, William and Joseph Pendleton of Westerly, gave to Samuel Rogers and his wife Patience, mother to William and Joseph, receipt for all their legacies in the will of their father, Joseph Pendleton. (C. & P. rec., 1719-1731, p. 248.).

CHILDREN (Issue of Joseph Pendleton, from Westerly vital records, confirmed by his will [see Appendix VIII of the book cited below]. By first wife.):
i. Deborah Pendleton, b.29-Aug-1697, d.????, m. Nicholas Frink b.????, d.????.

Children of Patience Pendleton
I have added the names you suggested under biographical info. The best way to link them, however, is to create a memorial for Joseph and Joshua and then link them to their parents. Unfortunately, you cannot add children links to a parent's page but you can add parent links to a child's page. Hope that makes sense.

I would create the memorials for them but I do not know where they are buried. Also, particularly if you are a descendent, you may want to create their memorials yourself, that way you can add biographical info and other links as information becomes available to you. Thanks.
