Kristi,
Hope you are doing well. I was wondering about Wm. Peadody who married Eliz. Alden. You have the Joshua Bailey Richmond book titled "The Richmond Family," as a source. Do you know how they are related to the Richmond family. I am related to the Richmond's through Isaac Brock Winegarden 1812-1881 who married Elizabeth 'Betsey' Richmond 1819-1885. I have already proved my Mayflower descendant from John Howland and Thomas Rogers. So now I am wondering if I am also a Mayflower descendant from Wm. Peabody and Eliz. Alden.
Thanks and have a great Friday!

Admin reply: Hi, Patti --

It's very nice to hear from you again. Joshua Bailey Richmond is a descendant of William Peabody and Elizabeth Alden in a maternal line (a granddaughter married a Richmond descendant). Neither you nor I descend from that same lineage, so we don't trace back to the Peabodys and Aldens that way. Of course, as you know, we both do trace back to Thomas Rogers, since one of the earliest Richmonds in America did marry the granddaughter of Thomas Rogers.

I'll try to send you a direct email very soon. It's been hectic last few weeks... very little time for my favorite hobby.

cheers,
Kirsty

I have found this fascinating. Helen Hanning Stewart (Aunt Helen) first of all married my great uncle Anthony Thomson Gowan. Anthony had an elder sister Euphemia (Effie), a younger brother Alastair and a further brother Ian Gowan. Ian was killed at the Battle Of Arras on 9th April 1917. I have just returned from the commemorative events there and also visited Vimy Ridge.

Admin reply: Hi, Alastair --

Thanks for stopping by my website. If your great-uncle Anthony Gowan and Helen Stewart had any children together, then we would share some relatives in common. Perhaps we can share information.

I will contact you by direct email later this weekend.

cheers,

Wow, this stuff is amazing. I searched my grandfather David Boyd Haining (1901-1975) and you have traced the line back to 1730. I knew my grandfather was a postman and his father was a shoemaker.SO...How are WE related?

Admin reply: Hi, Jackie!

I'm so pleased to hear from you. We are 4th cousins -- which basically means that you go up 4 generations from your grandfather to get to our common ancestors. That's relatively close, genealogically speaking.

I'll send you a direct email soon. I'm eager to compare notes.

Admin reply: Hi, Elizabeth!

How very nice to hear from you. We are related through your grandmother's maternal line, the Vincents -- we are third cousins twice removed (to be exact). I'll send you a direct email shortly and we can get better acquainted.

Thanks for stopping by my website!

Re Robert Haining Hunter and Marion Denholm

Their marriage was recorded on 12 June 1857 at Brownlie, Carluke (information from Marriage Registration held at National Records of Scotland)

They had two children in addition to those you have listed:
Jane Hunter born about 1877 and James Hunter born about 1880 (both children are with their parents and most of their siblings in the 1881 census in Cambusnethan, Lanarkshire, Scotland and both are listed as born in Wishaw, Lanarkshire, Scotland)

Admin reply: Hi, Robert --

Thanks for the additional details on Robert Haining Hunter and Marion Denholm. The question about the marriage date was because a usually reliable source made a transcription error and gave the wrong date for the marriage. It's a widely used source, so the incorrect date will show up again and again in trees all over the place. Since the last time I updated my website, I've obtained a copy of the marriage certificate (and also verified that it wasn't one of those extremely rare cases where there were two SR marriage entries). But I hadn't seen the 1881 census, so it's nice to know about the additional children. Are you related?

I should warn you that the connection further up the tree is still theoretical. At the time I tied the families together, I thought I had good reason to do so -- but I'm no longer sure they should be connected. So take Janet Haining's paternal grandparents with a very large grain of salt!

Thanks for visiting my website!

With respect to Hainings, Harrowers, Powells, Richmonds, and Related Families unde the listings for Ingrid Inez Nelson (aka Nilsson, the Swedish name), you have her mother's name wrong. You have Sigrid Olson and her name was Sigrid Hansdotter. Sigrid Olson was actually her daughter. Easy mistake to make.

Thanks for all your work on this genealogy.

Gordon

Admin reply: Hi, Gordon --

Thanks for visiting my website.

Sigrid's surname comes from her death record in Washington, where her father was listed as Olof Olson. Admittedly "Olson" is an Americanization of her surname -- on Ingrid's birth record and the family's emigration records, Sigrid's surname was given as "Olsdotter."

It is actually Ingrid who had the surname "Hansdotter" (in the traditional Swedish way), but she also had the surname "Nilsson" (as her modern variant). Likewise, Ingrid's sister Sigrid also had the maiden surnames Hansdotter or Nilsson (but then she later also had the married surname of Olson).

Hi there, I came across your website whilst looking up Maurice Gibblett (an ancestor of mine) and I was delighted to find you had the records of many other Gibblet ancestors of mine going back to the 16th century! Other Gibblet ancestors of mine include my great great grandfather Joseph Arthur Gibblett and great great great grandfather Joseph Gibblett. Being a bit of a history geek I was very interested to see that Joseph Gibblets wife was a Mary Seymour, I don't suppose you know if she was related to the famous Seymours? I don't know how common the Seymour name was.

Admin reply: Hi, Jessica --

It's nice to hear from you. Seems like we're distant Giblett cousins. Without knowing your exact lineage, I'd guess we're probably 7th or 8th cousins. Some of the research is mine, but I'm greatly indebted to another Giblett cousin for much of our Giblett ancestry. I'll tell you more by direct email.

I don't know if Mary Ann Seymour is connected to the famous Seymours or not. In general, the surname is about 20 times more common than "Giblett" is as a surname. So -- not the most common surname ever (I think "Johnson" and "Williams" are in the running there), but not unusual either.

Thanks for stopping by my website! Expect to hear from me by direct email fairly soon.

cheers,

Hello. I am the great granddaughter of Sabina McManamion from her second marriage to Hugh Bell.
Neither Sabina or her daughter, Sabina Burke had the name Josephine, so that name may have came into the family from Sabina Burke's children.
I would love to hear from you to share some details.
Karon.

Admin reply: Hi, Karon --

How nice to hear from you. It was a descendant of Sabina Burke and David Jeffrey Cochrane who gave Sabina's name as "Sabina Josephine Burke" -- but I see that you are correct. The "Josephine" comes from the Cochrane side and applies to their daughter, rather than to the mother. It's much easier to verify information like this now that ScotlandsPeople has made index searches free!

I look forward to exchanging some information with you. I'll contact you by direct email soon.

Thanks for visiting my website!

good morning I am looking for details of the death of Henry Keeliing died 25th dec 1941. I think he may have been with a man from our village who died on the same day - they were both gunners.........thanks

Admin reply: Hi, Morag --

I can't tell you too much more than what you already saw on my website. Henry -- or Harry as he was known -- was born in West Derby, Liverpool in 1Q 1909, to Thomas Keeling and his wife, Ann Jane "Jane" Spelman. He grew up in Liverpool, and married Alice Evelyn Jowett there in first quarter 1935. He had a daughter in 1936. I don't know exactly when he enlisted, but he was a gunner in the Royal Artillery. His service number was 1473604 and he was with the Royal Artillery, 181 By., 60 Lt. A.A. Regiment. He died on 25 Dec 1941 in Chichester, Sussex, England (wasn't that where an RAF base was?). When his estate was probated on 11 Nov 1942, the home address was given as 22 Church-road in Rhos-on-Sea, Denbighshire, Wales. I assume his wife moved sometime during his war service. Harry was buried in Kirkdale Cemetery, Section 9, Church of England, Grave 265. In 1943 his widow Alice married again to George Stewart Cameron (1897-1967).

That's all I know. If you can confirm the regiment of the man from your village (check the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, http://www.cwgc.org), you can see if they served in the same unit. You might also try searching historical newspapers for additional details -- you can access those online or sometimes through your local library. I've had some success before with British Newspaper Archives (http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/).

Best of luck!
