Re: Query re Mary Grant Cecil #Middlesex

Chris Klemmer
 

Douglass,

From indexes online at CT State Library,
MARY CECIL died 1938-07-12 WATERBURY
DANIEL CECIL married MARY GRANT 1934-06-21 FARMINGTON

From city directories, it appears they met in Waterbury and lived together in Middletown starting in 1934.
See the attachment for citations and details. If further explanation is needed, don't hesitate to ask.

I suggest contacting Town clerks in Farmington and Waterbury for Mary's marriage and death records and possible children.
CT State Department of Health is another option. Vital records are not at the State Library.
Farmington Town Clerk, https://www.farmington-ct.org/departments/town-clerk 
Waterbury Town Clerk, http://www.waterburyct.org/townclerk
CT Department of Health, https://portal.ct.gov/DPH

If you don't mind me asking, where are you researching from?
Are these towns accessible to you?

Best wishes,
Chris



Query re Mary Grant Cecil #Middlesex

Douglass Grant
 

Mary Catherine Grant, b. 1900 in Glace Bay, Cape Breton County, Nova Scotia, Canada (d/o James & Dollena), migrated to the US in 1920 and married Daniel Cecil (s/o Carmine & Rose) on a date not yet discovered.  She died in Middletown on or about 12 July 1938, and her body was returned to NS for burial.  Her widowed husband was living with his family in Waterbury in 1940.  There is no evidence of children from the marriage.  Can anyone help me with the date of their marriage, or any information about the circumstances of her death?

The Silas Bronson Library in Waterbury will do obituary look-ups.  They have been very helpful to me in the past and offer a quick and courteous service at no charge.

Here is a link to their site that provides instructions.:

Obituaries For Petrauskas in CT

gwgehoyt@...
 

Friend------

If you go to "obituaries.com" and select on "CT."  Then type in the name of "Petrauskas" and then select on "all."
You will find there are six people with that surname with Obits in CT. One of them might be the one you are looking for. If that doesn't work for you, contact me and I will pull them up and try to help you directly.

Re: Looking for obituaries - Petrauskas

Chris Klemmer
 

Try contacting libraries in the towns where each of these people died. This has worked well for me. Please note,  they sometimes charge a modest look-up fee. 
The CT State Library is also a good resource at https://ctstatelibrary.org/contact-us/email-us/ .

Looking for obituaries - Petrauskas

Julie
 

I've got genealogybank - unfortunately I didn't find any of the ones you asked for.  

I found an article about Joseph Petrauskas becoming a citizen in 1919

There are quite a few obits of Petrauskas in the Chicago newspapers - but not many for CT

sorry
Julie

Hannah Buck married John Bartram, my ancestor but nothing to prove that she was first Hannah Craw.

Orange Bartram was son of John Bartram and Hannah Buck (maiden name Craw).

I am trying to find something that proves that Hannah Buck Bartram was Hannah Craw.

Re: BARNUM - SHEPARD Family Photograph

Heather Gray
 

I am a Barnum descendent. If I'm correct, doing this off the top of my head, the Reverend's father, Daniel, would be a brother to my direct ancestor Caleb or Thomas. I may be confusing the generations. I don't have access to my tree at the moment so can't clarify. All Barnums from Danbury in that time frame do descend from a Thomas Barnum, who immigrated to Connecticut early 1700's. He was a lawyer. I'm sorry I can't be more exact, as I said I don't have access to my tree right now. If you don't find any other takers, I would be thrilled to add to my album of Barnum family photos.
Great find!
Heather

Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding this couple:

 

Rev. Frederick Shepard BARNUM was b. 3 Feb 1837 in Bethel, CT to parents Daniel E. BARNUM (1799-1881) and Charlotte or Charlotta SHEPARD (1807-1886) who were married 17 Jan 1827 in Danbury, CT.  Frederick was one of 12 children born to this couple including, Baby Girl; Sarah B.; Joanna; Baby Girl; Emily Augusta; Oliver Shepard; Baby Girl; Rev. Frederick Shepard; Julia Shepard; Baby Girl;  Oliver; and Edmund Bragdon BARNUM, all born between 1827 and 1844.  His Father Daniel was married previously and had to additional children including, Lewis Smith BARNUM and Isaac Williams BARNUM born in 1822 and 1824 respectively. 

 

Frederick married Esther M. LEE (1835-1929) on 19 Apr 1860 and they had four children including, William Johnson; Frederick “Fred” Lee; Louis Lawrence; and Oliver Shepard BARNUM, all born between 1861 and 1867. Frederick died 27 Mar 1911 in Kingston, NY and is buried in the Wiltwyck Cemetery in Kingston, NY.  Esther M. LEE was b. 13 Feb 1835 in New York to parents Ashbel B. LEE (1808-1872) and Isabella HILL (1810-1891) and it appears that she was their only child.  Esther died 25 Jan 1929 and is buried along with her husband in the Wiltwyck Cemetery in Kingston, NY.

 

I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family.  If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
