Jeremiah Greene (1785-1877) of Coventry, RI and Canterbury, CT was a Farmer (Blog 34)

The book The Greenes of Rhode Island, with Historical Records of English Ancestry, 1534-1902 pretty much sums up all we know about Jeremiah Greene, my 3rd great grandfather – he was the son of Stephen and Sarah (Chase) Greene, was a farmer, married Mary Ann Smith and had three children.

1664. JEREMIAH7 GREENE “of Connecticut” (Stephen6, Job5,
Fones4, James3, James2, John1) was born in Coventry, November 17,
1785, died May 23, 1877. He married April 12, 1818, Mary Ann Smith of
Norwich, Conn, born February 9, 1797, died December 31, 1878. They
resided at Westminister, Windham County, Conn. He was a farmer.
CHILDREN:

We also know that Jeremiah is listed with the last name of Green in the census records.  He had real estate valued at $2,000 in 1850, $1,500 in 1860 and $2,000 in 1870, lived in Canterbury, Connecticut, and was buried in Westminster Cemetery in Canterbury, Connecticut.

CHILDREN:

Ann Eliza Greene (1818-1867) – married John Chandler Bartlett

Albert Chace Greene (1829-1929) – married Mary Elizabeth Bemis – my ancestor

James Tracy Greene (1832-1852)

We’d love to find more vital records, land records, and probate records to learn more about Jeremiah but it appears that requires a trip to the Canterbury Town Hall — sounds like a future road trip!

Note:  There is a different Jeremiah Greene, son of Abel Greene who was also born in Rhode Island and married Freelove Hopkins who is mentioned in the Commemorative biographical record of Tolland and Windham counties, Connecticut.  This Jeremiah also had a son named Albert C Greene born in 1823.

John P Davis, my 3rd Great Grandfather of Wales and Cincinnati, Ohio, Cistern Builder (Blog 33)

 

Burial Record John P Davis Springgrove

Spring Grove Cemeteries, digital images (http://www.springgrove.org), John P Davis

We don’t know exactly when or where John P Davis (also known as Davies) was born — from his burial record, we calculate that he was born on October 7, 1822 in Wales and learn that his father’s name was Paul.

An article about his son, David Paul Davis, written in 1889 when John would have been 67 states that his parents were “two of the oldest settlers of that locality.” but our first record of John P Davis is the 1860 census where he is listed with a birth in Wales with his wife Martha P Jones also born in Wales, and five children all born in Ohio.  In 1860 John had an occupation of day laborer, owned $2000 of real estate, and had a personal estate of $70.  By 1870, John had an occupation of cistern and valet builder, had real estate valued at $5,000, and personal property of $150.  He appears in the 1878 city directory on 15 Chestnut Street as a cistern builder but by 1880 he was working for the water department where he became a district officer for the city water works.  He possibly retired at the age of 68 and remained in his home until his death on October 30, 1892.

John’s wife Martha had predeceased him – he left a will leaving his property on 15 Chestnut street to his son David Paul Davis, with income going to his son John P Davis and personal property split between his children David Paul Davis, John P Davis, Gowen Paul Davis, daughter Margaret P Edwards, and daughter Martha P Diggins.

Sunday’s Obituary – Elizabeth (Jones) Edwards of Aberystwyth (1814-1816), my 3rd great grandmother (Blog 32)

We don’t know much about Elizabeth Jones, of Bow Street, wife of Edward Edwards (Pencerdd Ceredigion), Aberystwyth and my third great grandmother.

She’s mentioned by name in her husband’s obituary which is where we’ve learned her last name and that she came from Bow Street.  Based on her death announcement and census records, we believe she was born about 1814.  We find her with Edward on 14 Popular Street in 1851 and again with him in the 1861 census.  She died on December 13, 1865 and has two obituaries, one in English which we can read, and one in Welch which we’ve translated thanks to some assistance from the Facebook Group “You Know You’re From Aberystwyth When….”

Death Elizabeth Jones Edwards Deaths, The Aberystwith Observer (Aberystwyth, Wales), 16 August 1865Deaths. …

On Tuesday, the 12th instant, aged 52 years,
Elizabeth, wife of Mr. Edward Edwards, of Great
Dark gate-street, in this town.

Obituary Mrs Edwards - Elizabeth Jones MARWOLAETHAU [Deaths], Baner ac Amserau Cymru (Denbigh, Wales), 20 December 1865

13th, in Aberystwyth, 13th, Mrs Edwards, wife of Mr E Edwards, (Pencerdd Ceredigion), 53 years old. She died peacefully, resting entirely in her Savior’s or Redeemer’s merit [according to the great folks from Aberystwyth this is an old religious reference”

So very glad to have found these obituaries — hoping to someday learn more about this Elizabeth Jones from Aberystwyth, Wales.  Note:  There is a Mary Jones buried in the same plot who died May 23, 1885 but we’re not sure if or how she’s related.

CHILDREN:

Mary Edwards (1841-1887) – married James Hughes

Ann Edwards (1842-1909) – well known Welch scholar, one of first women students to attend college in Aberystwyth

Edward R Edwards (1845-1923) – moved from Wales to Ohio where he married Margaret Davis. [my ancestor]

Elizabeth Edwards (1852-1899) – married Rev John Austin Jenkins

Jack John Edwards (1853-1943) – lived with his brother Edward in Ohio for a few years, then returned to Wales where he continued his father’s profession as a bookseller and stationer

Sunday’s Obituary – Mercy (Rose) (Shackford) Newell (1795-1875) “OUR MOTHER” (Blog 31)

My third great grandmother, Mercy Rose, the daughter of Eber and Elizabeth (Green) Rose was born on January 24, 1795 in Newburyport.  She was their second daughter named Mercy – the first Mercy was born in 1792 and died in 1793.

Mercy was 17 when she married 22 year old William Shackford, son of Levi and Tampson (Greenleaf) Shackford.  They had ten children, nine (ages 1-19) who were living when William, a mason, died of pleurisy on May 15, 1831.  We don’t know how Mercy supported her large family after William died — this may be why on January 18, 1834, she married Joseph Newell who was thirty years her senior.  In 1850 Joseph was head of household with Mercy and children Abner and Emeline in the home but by 1855 Mercy was living in her son Abner’s home with son Thomas.  Joseph died shortly thereafter in Boston at the age of 89 of old age in Brookline, Massachusetts on October 31, 1856.

After Joseph’s death, Mercy lived with her son-in-law Edward Cushing and her daughter Louise in Weymouth.  In 1865 she was living with her son-in-law Joel Whittemore and daughter Caroline along with son Abner.  Death Record Mercy Rose Shackford NewellMercy died on March 21, 1875 of old age at the age of 80 in Brookline.

Wedding Wednesday – George W Patterson and Melinda Cranmer Wed in Manahawkin, New Jersey on Feb 16, 1852 (Blog 30)

We’re sharing the limited information we know about George W Patterson, my second great grandfather in the hopes of finding others who may know more about him.

George was buried at the Greenwood Cemetery in Cedar Run, New Jersey and his gravestone which can be seen at FindAGrave gives us his birth date as Jan 19, 1830 and his death date as Nov 25, 1889.  He’s buried next to his wife, Melinda Cranmer Patterson, 1835-1901.

Marriage Record George Patterson and Melinda CranmerWe found this index of his marriage record to Melinda Cranmer which tells us he was the son of Cortenus Patterson and his wife was the daughter of Elias Cranmer. We’re hoping we can see the image of this document when we visit our local Family History Center next week.

George can be found in the 1850, 1870, and 1880 census records which show him working as a laborer, ship carpenter, and unemployed ship carpenter respectfully. He’s also listed in the 1885 New Jersey census with his family.  George registered for the draft on December 22, 1863 but we don’t know if he served in the Civil War.

That’s all we know about George other than a list of his children which have been compiled from the census records and additional sources at Ancestry and FamilySearch  Some have descendants have been flushed out further as we share DNA with a few of George and Melinda’s descendants.  We done an intensive search for information without the ability to visit distant libraries and archives in New Jersey but this is all we’ve found so we hope that other researchers of this line can share some more information about him.

CHILDREN:

Phebe A Patterson (1853-1913) – married George H Lamson

Lenora Patterson (1856-1918) – married Jonathan M Cobb

Cortenus S Patterson (1859-1945) – married Ellen Howell

Wedding Wednesday – On September 6, 1915, Albert C. and Mary Elizabeth (Bemis) Greene Celebrate Their Golden Wedding in Danielson, Conn! (Blog 28)

Albert C Greene DANIELSON COUPLE MARRIED FIFTY YEARS Golden Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Albert C. Greene Observed With Many in Attendance, Norwich Bulliten (Norwich, Connecticut), 11DANIELSON COUPLE MARRIED FIFTY YEARS

Golden Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Albert C. Greene Observed With Many in Attendance

An interesting occasion was the cel-
ebration of Mr. and Mrs. A. C.
Greene at their home, 197 Main street,
Danielson, on Monday, Sept. 6th, 1915,
says the Windham County Transcript.
At this time were gathered in informal
manner four of their five sons and one
of their daughters and a goodly com-
pany of relatives, neighbors and
friends to observe the unusual event of
a golden wedding, which is so seldom
the lot of a married couple to enjoy.
Time and place will not permit the
telling of the pleasing and interesting
romance of the wooing and wedding of
these two estimable young people.
They were married at the bride’s home
in Oxford, N. Y. September 6, 1865,
soon after the bridegroom was dis-
charged from the United States ser-
vice, where he had served three years
in the Civil war for the preservation
of the Union.
Albert C Greene DANIELSON COUPLE MARRIED FIFTY YEARS Golden Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Albert C. Greene Observed With Many in Attendance, Norwich Bulliten (Norwich, Connecticut), 11Albert C. Greene was born in Plain-
field near Packerville (then so-called)
on September 24, 1829, so in a little
more than two weeks he will be able to
celebrate his eighty-sixth birthday.
When not more than two weeks of age
his parents moved to Canterbury where
the marority of his life has been
spent, although he has resided in Bos-
ton and other cities for a number of
years, and for the past seven years
has been a resident of Danielson,
where he has enjoyed the esteem of a
large circle of friends. He had pre-
vously spent five years in Ballouville,
in this town, as manager of the At-
tawaugan Co. store in that village.
Previous to coming to Danielson he
had resided on his farm in Westminister
where he and his estimable companion
reared their now interesting family of
five sons and two daughters all of
whom are occupying places of re-
sponsibility, honor and trust, seldom
enjoyed by any one family. The
prosperity they enjoy, the bridegroom
is want to say is due to the devoted
mother, whose well cultivated ind
and excellent judgment has been a
grand inspiration to all of her child-
ren, whose affection and devotion for
their mother shows no bound.

Oxford, N. Y. April 16, 1842, and has
recently passed her seventy-third year.
She spent her young life in her native
town and was graduated from the Ox-
ford academy, at that time the pioneer
and most popular institution of learn-
ing in the state of N.Y., and previous
to her marriage had een a teacher.
She has always enjoyed excellent
health and has been able to engage in
the activities of charitable, patriotic
and church work, the latter for fifty-
five years.
The day for the observance of the
golden wedding nature truly smiled
upon, it being a perfect golden Sep-
tember day. The sun had risen in
golden splendor, which later on gave
a bit of anxiety for what it might be
as the day rolled on, but it was only
for a few moments when its smile
reappeared for the perfect day it was
to the finish.
