Mary Elliot, Woodland Cemetery
Hello. Yesterday, I searched for Mary's grave in Section 68, Tier 1, Grave 54, and I'm sorry to say that there is no stone. This section is comprised of hundreds of grave from late 1800s, early 1900s, and very few have headstones. I'm posting a photo to her Find A Grave memorial showing the empty area where her grave is located. Wish I could be of more help.

I transferred Ann & Leverett Cushman to you. I'm not related to them & since you sponsered them, I figured you should have them!

I'll be going back out to Greenwood tomorrow. If there's any other ancestors you want pics of put it up and I'll take care of it. Cindy

RE: Marsar Cussons
Just in case you didn't notice, I also added what I believe are two sons and a daughter or daughter in law. All buried next to Marsar.

RE: Rebecca Stanley
Sometimes I try to straighten up the gravestone if it is leaning..but most are too heavy and stuck in the ground to I leave them. I really don't do anything...I often don't feel that it is my place to disturb the stone because I am not a relative. Often the budget for cemetery upkeep is the first thing to get cut when there are town or private budget issues. There are some cemeteries that take such good care of their broken/leaning stones and others have stones broken/on the ground is a shame. I know that there are companies that for a fee that will clean/straighten etc a stone...but the cemetery needs to be notified before any work is done...sometimes they have their own company that does the work.

Hope I wasn't too much of a "pain" in trying to verify Rebecca's maiden name...saw the name on Ancestry and just assumed (will never do that again) that Barbour was correct...have never seen an error before in his records...makes me a little suspicious for anything I read there now!!

Yes the census records are full of mistakes(and not a primary source but secondary for the Mayflower Society) husband's grandmother's name was Cecelia but written Smetia in the census...what a challenge that was to find!! The census takers were not "super" spellers ..sometimes wrote what they thought it was...if the family wasn't home, they would get the info from a neighbor..and I have often thought that if the parent who gave the info had a thick brogue...who knows what name spelling would result..but like you I've never had a male put in instead of a female with the name Allen instead of Allice!!

The Mayflower Society is not without mistakes either. For years we thought we were related to Standish/Allen/Mullins and several family members joined under that assumption. Then a 2nd cousin who lives in Utah...researched some family papers/letters and we are now really related to Francis Cooke and I joined under that ancestor.

Give me some more info on John Bump..Alice Bump's (d 1804) husband and Allice Johnson. Did they both die in CT ?? Any death dates if you know and where they lived. Tough with Hanna and Sarah as you cannot be sure if they married and so have different last names.

Will do them one at a time...see if I can find any information that you don't already know.

RE: Rebecca Stanley
Maiden name solved...again I am such a doubting Thomas...need to see with my own eyes!! I went to the Ellington Town Clerk's office this morning and saw the original handwritten transcription...and they had great, clear handwriting at that time. It was one line only with the following information:
Date..1800 Dec 21
Groom..Roswell Stanley
Bride..Rebecca Bump

I could not photograph it and they charge $20 for a certified copy with the form available on their website. They were very nice there and I'm sure will help you with any questions you may have.

I received some edits from Anonymous this weekend with links to Rebecca's parents and her maiden name...will do those shortly.

Also if you wish Rebecca's memorial page to be transferred to you or Anonymous..I will gladly do it as she is not in my family.

I will call CSL tomorrow...for my own information too...and see if they just have the Barbour Records (which we know are sometimes wrong) or if they have a copy of the original documents.

It has been a pleasure working with you and if you need any photographs or have any questions, please ask. I enjoy doing research for others even if it is not my own family.

Good luck with your genealogy,

RE: Rebecca Stanley
I had a real problem with people coming to me and asking where I had gotten a certain piece of information from on a memorial page...I get many edits per day. Unfortunately edits won't give you the source/contributor's number. This way if someone has a discrepancy or doubt as to the validity of the information or wishes to get in touch with someone who is also researching a particular family..then the contributor's number is there. It has solved a myriad of "issues" for me.

RE: Rebecca Stanley
I just called the Ellington Town Hall...and she looked up the Roswell/Rebecca wedding in 1800...and it looks to her like the Rebecca's last name is Bump!! It costs $20 for a marriage certified copy so I won't do that (you can if you wish)...but will bring my camera along and see if that is allowed...if not...then my seeing it in person will have to do.
Will write more soon,
