Re: ATKINSON Family Photograph

Harvey Conklin Hilton
 

Hi Shelly, 
Below is info on Cynthia "Cindy"  Bartlett.  She would be age 80 and I believe still living in Harrington, ME 
Here is how I got there.
Oland's mother was Ella Blanche Ingalls. Oland had no children.
Ella's sister was Florence May Ingals 1894-1985 who married Eli John Barlett 1888-1955.
Florence and Eli had a son Thurland Arthur Bartlett 1912-1965 who married Gertrude H Reedy 1912-1986.
Thurland & Gertrude had a son Leonard Fredrick Bartlett 1938-1985 who married Cynthia Francis Small 1940-living (see above).
I don't know if or how many children they may have had. Any children would be blood relatives of Ella and son Oland. 
This is about the closest relative I could find.
Good Luck,
Harvey

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Oland I. ATKINSON age 2 years and Ella B. I. ATKINSON age 23 years which is dated 25 Dec 1915 and includes the inscription "A Merry Xmas".    Based on limited research I was able to find the following information regarding Oland and his Mother Ella:

 

Oland I ATKINSON was b. 5 Dec 1913 in Bar Mills or Buxton, ME to parents Laurence H. ATKINSON (1893-1970) and Ella Blanche INGALLS (b. Dec 1892) who were married 8 Jan 1913 in Buxton, ME.  Oland’s Mother died and his father remarried Maybell E. BOYLE (1898-1983) but it doesn’t appear that they had more children. Oland married twice, first to Margaret Etherl CORLISS EVELETH (1913-1992) on 11 May 1936 in Portsmouth, NH and second to Joy BLACKDEN SHANAHAN (1929-2017) in 1952.  Oland died 16 Mar 1969 in East Windsor, CT and is buried in the Arlington Cemetery in Windham Center, ME.

 

His Mother was Ella Blanche INGALLS b. Dec 1892 in Maine to parents Malcolm Vincet INGALLS (1872-1958) and Eva M. ELWELL (b. 1873).  Ella was one of three children born to the couple including Ella Blanche; Florence M.; and Elston Paul INGALLS, all born between 1892 and 1911.  It appears that Ella passed away sometime between the time this photograph was taken and about 1920.

 

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

FOWLER - THOMAS Family Photograph

Shelley Cardiel
 

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Charles FOWLER which appears to have been taken in the early 1900's.  Charles appears to be in his 50's at the time.  There is no photographer or studio location indicated on the photograph.  Charles is identified as "Grandfather" and also the "Father to Beth, Fred, and Lillian".  Based on limited research I was able to find the following information regarding Charles and his family:

 

Charles Sumner FOWLER was b. 26 Oct 1853 in Lebanon, CT to parents Edward Perry Clinton FOWLER (1818-1899) and Elizabeth “Betsy” THOMAS (1822-1883) who were married 8 Sept 1842 in Lebanon, CT.  Charles was one of 6 children born to this couple including, John Clinton; Nelsen L.; William F. or T.; Emeline Lydia; Charles Sumner; and Edward Perry Clinton FOWLER, all born between 1844 and 1861.  Charles married Alice Lord THOMPSON (b. 1856) on 20 Nov 1869 and they had three children including Carrie Lillian; Frederick Charles; Elizabeth M. Thompson FOWLER,  all born between 1881 and 1891.  It appears that Charles may have married a second time and had two additional child Winifred Susan FOWLER (1904-1973) and Lillian Alice FLOWLER (1907-1990) both born in Shanghai, China. 

 

Charles died 5 Dec 1935 and was buried in the Evergreen-Washelli Memorial Park Cemetery in Seattle, WA.

 

His daughter Carrie Lillian FOWLER was b. 15 Jan 1881 in Lake City, MN and she died 26 Aug 1955 in Seattle, WA.

His son Frederick Charles FOWLER was b. 18 Jun 1888 in Minneapolis, MN and he died 24 Mar 1923 in White Salmon, WA.

His daughter Elizabeth Thompson FOWLER was b. 25 Jun 1891 in Minneapolis, MN and she died 7 Mar 1980 in King Co., WA

 

I am hoping to locate someone from this FOWLER 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.

 

Thanks,

Re: May C Munson, artist 1902-1906, possibly from Waterbury - Who was she?

Harvey Conklin Hilton
 

There is a Miss May Munson of Southbury, CT who attended the 2nd Munson Family Reunion in New Haven, CT 19 Aug 1896.
A book on the proceedings of the reunion was published.
A book on the genealogy of Thomas Munson, founder of Hartford, CT also exists. 
 “The Munson Record: a Genealogical and Biographical Account of Captain Thomas Munson (A Pioneer of Hartford and New Haven) and his Descendants”, Vol.1, Myron A. Munson, New Haven, 1895  
There is a May E Munson b. 1868 living in Southbury in the 1900 census. She is single.  She is a nurse living with her brother.

Good Luck, Harvey

2. There was a marriage of a Mary Estelle "May" Munson to Isaac Ferris in 1906 in Greenwich, Conn.  This person was listed as May Munson, age 21, in the 1900 US Census, in a Munson family in Greenwich.  Her father, Arthur, was a sign painter.  She died 9 Jan 1917 in Stamford.  

3. May C Munson Sees (1879-1971), born May C Munson in Davenport, NY, (near Oneonta), twin daughter (with Maud) of Delas Munson (later known as Milton D), a grocer.  In the 1901 Oneonta City Directory, she was a clerk in her father's grocery.  In 1906 in Oneonta, she married Harry B.

Maybe one of these dabbled in painting??  If someone on this list has access to newspapers.com, maybe obituaries of these three ladies would help.  Thanks.

PORTER Family Photograph

Shelley Cardiel
 

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Grace D. PORTER and Henry J. PORTER which was taken at the Kellogg Studio in Hartford, CT. The photograph is dated 4 Jan 1888 with Grace identified as 9 years old, and Henry 7 years old.  Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding this family:

 

Grace Denslow PORTER was born 30 Mar 1879 and her brother Henry Joshua PORTER was born 15 Nov 1880, both were born in Windsor Locks, CT to parents Charles Austin PORTER (1843-1929) and Melissa Eliza DENSLOW DEWITT (1839-1880).  One additional child Lissa Agusta PORTER was born to this couple in 1875 and died that same year.  After their Mother died  their father had one additional child, a son William Dewitt PORTER (1891-1959).  Grace died 14 Feb 1949 in Monson, MA and is buried in the Grove Cemetery in Windsor Locks, CT.  Henry married Inez Philippa PHELAND (1882-1986) in 1907 and they had three children including, William; Charles Irving; and Daphne PORTER all born between 1908 and 1914.  Henry died 21 Nov 1973 in Montclair or Caldwell, NJ and is buried in the West Suffield Cemetery in Suffield, CT.

 

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

 

Thanks,

Shelley

Quickly off the top of my head, have you checked:

Torrey's Early New England Marriages (your marriage might be too late for this work)?

Jacobus' Families of Old Fairfield?

The Barbour Collection for the appropriate town?

Connecticut records are kept at the town level, so going to the town hall in the town you expect they married and examining the original records would be your best move for the most accurate results.
