Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding this group of family members:

 

Richard Church MILLER was b. 17 Apr 1820 in Hartland, CT, to parents Isaac Denison MILLER (1799-1857) and Deborah CHURCH (1799-1868) who were married 20 Feb 1819. Richard was one of 11 children born to this couple including, Richard Church; Jane Angeline; Amelia; Emily; Lester Recompense; Martha Edwina; Mary Adelia; Enoch or Enosh; Elijah Talcott; Lucinda or Lucina Elmira; and Adeline Deborah MILLER, all born between 1820 and 1841.  Richard married Nancy C. CARPENTER (1820-1898) on 26 Dec 1841 in Orion Township, Oakland Co., MI and they had  three children including, Oscar Carpenter MILLER (1844-1925); Chester Austin MILLER (1846-1928); and Helen Aurora MILLER (1851-1873).  Richard died 5 Apr 1898 in Greenville, MI and is buried in the Forest Home Cemetery in Greenville, MI.  Richard was a farmer moving to Fairplans, MI in 1854 and then to Greenville, MI.  He was elected to the Michigan State Legislature in 1871 and again in 1873.

CARPENTER (1778-1854) and Hannah Margaret TAFT (1782-1857) who were married 30 Jan 1801 in Uxbridge, MA.  Nancy was one of 10 children born to this family including Eunice; Orsmus or Erasmus T.; Joseph Rawson; Charlotte Taft; Charles A.; Mary Taft; Hannah Taft; Nancy Carter; Henrietta; and George CARPENTER, all born between 1802 and 1825.  Nancy was brought to Uxbridge, MA as an infant and then moved with her family to Orion, MI when she was 18 years old.  She was a prominent member of the Temperance Women’s group.  Nancy died 15 May 1898 in Greenville, MI and is buried in the Forest Home Cemetery in Greenville as well.

 

Chester Austin MILLER was b. 30 Apr 1846 in Orion, MI to these parents and married Florence E. JOHNSTON (1850-1933) on 8 Mar 1871 in Oakland Co., MI.  They had one daughter, Elnora Belle MILLER b. 1877 who they adopted.  Chester died in Los Angeles, CA on 18 Dec 1928.

 

Florence E. JOHNSTON was b. 13 Jul 1850 in Johnston, OH to parents Herman JOHNSTON and Phebe J. GLEASON.  Florence was there only child.  Florence died 2 Feb 1933 in Los Angeles, CA.

 

Helen Adelaide DANFORTH was b. 20 Nov 1873 in Michigan to parents Vanness G. DANFORTH (1836-1921) and Lucina A. MILLER (1837-1907).  Helen was one of 6 children born to this couple including a brother DeWitt W. DANFORTH (1866-1924).  Helen married Saxton Patton KERR (1857-1914) and they had a son, George Saxon KERR (1894-1970) and two daughters Marguerite Emily KERR and Florence Louise KERR HOEFFEL.  Helen died 1 May 1953 in Los Angeles, CA and is buried in the Riverview Cemetery in Portland, OR.

 

Lucina A. MILLER was b. 14 Apr 1837 in Pontiac, MI to parents Isaac D. and Deborah MILLER noted above and she married Vanness G. DANFORTH in Greenville or Eureka, MI on 6 Dec 1860 and they had six children including, Dewitt W.; Florence Alma; Lloy A.;  Helen Adelaide; Maude Ethel; and Mandly DANFORTH all born between 1865 and 1875.  They moved to Portland, Oregon in 1898.

 

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

WARNER Family Photograph

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Leona WARNER of Putnam, CT which was taken on 29 Aug 1900 at the Lake in Westfield, VT. The photograph was a gift to "Mable" with Leona appearing to be in her 20's at the time it was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Leona and her family:

 

Leona Jane WARNER was b. 28 Jun 1879 in Lowell, VT to parents William George or H. WARNER (1837-1891) and Mary Sophia WAKEFIELD (1842-1931).  Leona was one of 10 children born to this couple including, Alvin  or Alvah Charles; Vercil; Effie; Wilmond “Willie” A.; Mark Richard; Eva;  Vernon Waterman; Leona Jane;  Wallace Alvin or Alvah; and Elmer WARNER, all born between 1863 and 1885.  Leona married Charles Francis BODGE (b. 1877 the son of Joseph F. BODGE and Jenny B. NICHOLS) on 2 Sept 1905 in Westfield, VT and they had a daughter Arline or Arlene Ruth BODGE (1924-1965).  Leona died 30 Apr 1965 or 18 Jun 1967 in Newport, VT and is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in Lowell, VT.

 

Census records provide the following details:

 

1880 census of Lowell, VT:

 

William WARNER, age 43

Mary S. WARNER, age 38

Willie A. WARNER, age 17

Mark WARNER, age 11

HUTCHISON Family Photograph

Shelley Cardiel
 

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph identified as that of Agnes HUTCHISON at age 5 years.  The photograph was taken at the C. T. STUART Studio in Hartford, CT sometime in the 1880’s.  It appears that there were a number of possible matches in that area at the time so I’m not sure which Agnes this might be.  I’m hoping to locate someone from her family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of her family.  If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.

 

Thanks,

SMITHIES Family Photograph

Shelley Cardiel
 

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph identified as Edith Elizabeth SMITHIES which was taken at the F. W. M. Havee Studio in Stamford, CT.  The photograph is dated “Xmas 1887” with Edith appearing to be in her teens at the time it was taken.  I was able to find Edith in census records as follows:

 

1880 census of Stamford, CT:

 

George E. PARKER, age 40, a Hotel Proprietor, born MA, parents born MA

Loratha L. PARKER, wife, age 40 , Keeping House, born MA, parents born MA

Edith E. SMITHES, boarder, age 6, at School, born MA, parents born MA

 

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

 

Thanks,

Family Surnames: Prindle Springsteen Bigelow #New-Haven #Hartford

RandyC
 

I have been researching the Prindle family for years, lately I have been trying to nail down all the places my Joel Prindle and his wife Deborah Bigelow lived with their family.

Joel was born 16 Jan 1725 in New Haven Connecticut

I have seen online that he is mentioned in a Canaan, Hartford County Deed on March 30 1749 - I am not sure it is the correct Joel Prindle

and deeds showing Joel living Salisbury, Connecticut  Feb 8 1753 to Oct 15 1753 and Danbury Connecticut  27 Feb 1754 to Jan 1755

Their children: Joel the younger, William, Timothy, Doctor, Lois and my Joseph.

September 24, 1752, Timothy was christened in Rhinebeck NY

Joel and Deborah with children and grandchildren were living in Skenesboro (Whitehall) New York -  1773 Feb. - Tim family of 3 - Joel Sr family of 5 - Joel Jr family of 2 - Wm family of 2

Joseph Prindle married Anna Marie Springsteen on 14 Feb 1779 in the Reformed Dutch Church at Albany.


I would love ANY more info on this family

Thanks Randy

Sorting out the John Bakers #Litchfield #New-London

Wes Baker
 

I am trying to sort out the John Bakers who may have started out in New London, but moved to Litchfield County. There is a John Baker Sr, Deacon John Baker, Lieut. John Baker, etc., and it is possible that some of the titles are shared by the same person who went by them at different points in his life. The John Baker I know for sure was born 11 April 1703 in New London and died 07 May 1787 in Roxbury, Litchfield County. He married Patience Hurlbut and his children include Mary Baker (b. 1730; m. Joseph Allen) and Seth Baker (b. 1735; m. Abigail Woodruff).

There are a number of published genealogies since Mary was the mother of Ethan Allen and most of them point back to Alexander Baker who arrived Charles Town, Massachusetts Bay Colony, in 1635. However, I recall seeing a reference to an article written some time ago that suggested John Baker of Roxbury was not a descendant of his. I am now trying to find that article again since I didn't make a copy or write down the reference at the time.

I am trying to document the connections, so any help in sorting out all the John Bakers would be appreciated!

Thanks Ann for the feedback.  I see Columbia County is quite close to Northwestern Connecticut and so this could indeed be the Utleys Betsey Ann descended from.
