Graveyard crawler since childhood. Right now interested in the Grace Church Cemetery, and North Burial Ground both in Providence RI, plus Pocassett Cemetery in Cranston RI.
I am a local history buff - any local history -
I recently got the ancestor bug and with my father and a good friend, professional researcher - Ian O'hara are climbing through the branches of a great family tree. I would love to discuss and share common ancestors.
Some key surnames are:
- Fosters and Fowles of Newburyport, Ma. I am researching this line presently.
Dorr/Dore of Westboro MA, Amesbury MA, Neburyport, Portsmouth NH, Ossippe NH and Sacco Maine. Most of this line is completed thanks to help from several folks. I would gladly help others sharing this lineage or just compare information.
- Bowmans of Westboro and Cambridge, Ma again mostly complete, but would love to hear from others.
- Porter of Westboro,Ma, Newburyport, Ma, and Portsmouth N.H.
-Decedents of David Knox Hunter (b. 7March 1870 Alloa Clockmanna Scotland d. 14 Dec 1953 Westboro MA) - Hunter of Westboro Ma. and Alloa Clockmanna Scotland. I am glad to have this line to Scotland and several generations linage to James Hunter (b. 1747 ?? Scotland d. ?? Alloa Clockmanna Scotland. m. Isabells Frasen)I would love information before 1747 or information on other lines. I believe a different descendant immigrated to North Carolina much earlier that my family line (Abt 1770).
