Looking for the grave sites and location of farm of Moses BUCK and his wife, Mary (Polly) Adams Buck who lived at Georgia about 1790 to 1811?. Also grave sites of his sons, Luther, Alsa, Moses II, John, Samuel. Luther's wife, Asenath, is buried at Georgia Plains Cemetery but can't find anything on the rest of the family. I have copies of land deeds describing the location of the farm if you could put me in contact with someone who could interpret them for me. Thank you. E-mail: <Joanne_Buck@msn.com>
I am seeking information on Cordelia
WILLIAMS b. 12 Sep 1813 in VT. Cordelia marries Myron
RUBLEE abt 1849 most likely in Berkshire, Franklin.
Their children are Herbert Ashton Rublee b. 23 Feb
1842 in Franklin Co. & Manville William RUBLEE b.24 Mar 1850 in St. Albans,
Franklin, VT. Cordelia & Myron on listed in the
Berkshire, Franklin 1850 census & the Myron as head of the house in the
1840 Berkshire, Franklin, VT census.
I have much on the Rublee line but have no information on Cordelia's parents or her town of birth. Family tradition handed down from my great grandmother states that Cordelia is a descendant of Roger WILLIAMS founder of RI. Two of Roger WILLIAMS' descendants through Goliah WILLIAMS, Stephan & Roger WILLIAMS settle in Danby, Rutland in 1776 possibly Cordelia comes through either of these brothers. Any assistance would be so appreciated.
Thank You, Robert K. Conlee, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org (28 Nov 2003)
The 1870 Franklin Co VT census reflects a Joseph GILMORE, age 23, b in Canada, apparently living in a boarding house in the St. Albans area. I believe it is possible that he is the son of George GILMORE of Toronto Canada. Siblings of Joseph would have been: James (b 1829), Robert (b 1835), George Wallace (b 1837), Meria / Maria (b 1839), Thomas (b 1842), Zani Ann / Janie Ann (b 1844), Charles (b 1846). All born in Toronto - Joseph in 1848. Nothing further is known of any of these individuals except for George Wallace GILMORE, who appears in the 1860 Stephenson Co IL census, served the Union briefly, and later lived in KS. George's pension packet offers an official document with his siblings names and birth years. Would be most interested in communicating with anyone who has any knowledge of the Joseph GILMORE found in Franklin Co VT. Contact: Janis Walker Gilmore, E-mail: <email@example.com> (12 Sep 2003)
JOYAL - KEITH
I am looking for information on the Joyal/Keith family of Swanton, VT. Minerva JOYAL was born in Swanton around 1828. To date, I have not been able to find a record of this. She married Frederick Benjamin KEITH. His death record states that he was born in Deforester, NY (approximately 1818) to Eunice & Jonathan Keith, but there seems to be no such place as "Deforester, NY". They had four children in Swanton:
Frederick Benjamin (1859), Orpha Ann, Lilian Matilda and William Joel (4/1870.) William Joel is the only birth that I have found recorded. The family left the area after Frederick Keith died, relocating to western Mass in the 1870's. I have found them on the 1860 & 1870 census in Swanton. In 1850, I find Frederick, the father, prior to their marriage, in Sheldon (at least I think it's him.) I cannot find any record of Minerva Joyal prior to 1860.
Can anyone help me out there? Nancy, E-mail: <firstname.lastname@example.org>
