Treasure Chest Thursday - 1749 Baptism of Anne Angel (1749-1795) in Lacock, Wiltshire

  It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1749 baptism entry for Anne Angel in the Lacock, Wiltshire parish records:

The baptism entry is the first entry at the top of the page:

The transcription of this record is::

"[Feb.] 26 [1748/9] Anne Daughter of Tho's and Betty Angel."

The source citation for this record is:

"Wiltshire, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812," indexed database with record images, Ancestry.com (https://www.ancestry.com), Lacock > Parish Registers > 1717-1780, image 53 of 172, Anne Angel baptism, 26 February 1748/9.

This is an entry in the Lacock, Wiltshire parish register.  It is an Original Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the baptism of Anne Angel on 26 February 1748/9 in Lacock.  Anne Angel was the daughter of Thomas Angel and Elizabeth Hiscock of Lacock.  She married John Maishman, the son of John [and Jane (Crook)] Marshman of Lacock, on 2 March 1767 in Lacock.  
   
John Marshman (1747-????) and Anne Angel (1749-????) are my 4th great-grandparents; they had at least 6 children, including my 3rd great-grandmother Ann Marshman (1784-1856).

Rabbit Holes With Randy - Really Deep This Time!

 This week's Rabbit Hole is typical for my "play time" research - when I am bored and need something fun to interest me.  Here is what happened:

1)  I checked the new record collections on MyHeritage - lookee there, they have a new record collection for "Connecticut Marriages" added on 15 May 2022 - the description says:

This collection contains an index of marriage records from Connecticut in the United States from largely the first half of the twentieth century. Records may contain the first and last names of the bride and groom, the date of the marriage, and the city where the marriage was performed.

2)  I said:  "I wonder if they have some of my Richmond family marriages in this collection?"  I recalled that I have several descendants of my 2nd great-grandparents, James and Hannah (Rich) Richmond, for whom I don't have an explicit marriage date.  So I entered "Thomas Richmond" in the search fields to see what I can find:

I don't have the first one in my database, but I do have the next two, and this collection provides a marriage date and place.  There is no image, but I can use this information to see if I can find an image.  

3)  Because this is a derivative source with primary information and direct evidence of the marriages, but is from a vital records collection, I added it to my RootsMagic (replacing my "about 1923" and "about 1847" dates) profiles in my database for the two marriages.  I sourced the date and place to the MyHeritage collection because that is where I found it.  If I find a record image on another site with better information, I will source it also in the RootsMagic profiles.  

4)  I reviewed my RootsMagic file for other Connecticut marriages from this family line (they are all my cousins) without an exact date and found five or six more that I can add to my database.

5)  I said:  "Some of these folks in my tree were born in the 1900-1940 time frame, but I don't have death dates or places for them.  I wonder if Ancestry has death dates for some of these people?"

6)  I went to my Ancestry Member Tree (AMT) and searched for persons from within my AMT (that's usually the best way to search on Ancestry, IMHO) methodically down through the children of my second great-grands, and sure enough there were Connecticut death records and obituaries for about 20 descendants of James and Hannah (Rich) Richmond.  I was able to add several children to their descendants because there were records for them.  I added source citations for the information. 

7)  As an added "bonus," I found a World War II draft registration card  for my first cousin, twice removed, Thomas H.M. Richmond (1902-1987), that gave me his full name as "Thomas Henry Marshman Richmond."  Marshman was the maiden name of his great-grandmother, Ann (Marshman) Richman (1788-1856) of Hilperton, Wiltshire.  

8)  This was a very profitable (well, no money came my way, but it added significant content to my tree!) three hours down this rabbit hole, and I accomplished something for the descendants of my 2nd great-grandparents.  I like doing these "play time" free-styling searches - it keeps me fresh and usually feeds my RootsMagic family tree with added content and sources.  

NOTE:  I checked the Ancestry record collection for some of the marriages, and they are in the Web: Connecticut, U.S., Marriage Records, 1897-1968 collection.  I guess I haven't searched Ancestry well enough or checked the record hints for these folks!

It's time for my afternoon snack - I bought some more carrots the other day and they have replaced my afternoon ice cream snack.  I have to take care of this bunny's heart!

Best Friends Diane and Linda in 2005 -- Post 720 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

  I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs: 

It's always fun times when Linda's best friend in high school and college visit with us.  We were up in San Francisco visiting Lori and her family in May 2005 when Diane and her family were visiting her family in San Francisco.  so we met at a restaurant in Daly City (I think) and had lunch together.  Diane and Linda went to Abraham Lincoln High School and San Francisco State College together in the 1957-1964 time frame.  We have enjoyed visiting Diane's family in Kansas (we attended two weddings of her children there!) and they have come to San Diego on vacation and to celebrate our daughter Tami's wedding and Linda's 74th birthday.

This is all part of our family history!

Rest in Peace, My Friend - "Cousin Russ" Worthington (1943-2022)

 The genealogy community was shocked and saddened on May 11th when the news came on Facebook that our friend and colleague Russ Worthington had passed away, perhaps from a heart attack.  I have known Russ for about 14 years and enjoyed his presence, his wisdom, his thoughtfulness, and his work.  He was a kind, smart and gentle man.  Russ was a Coast Guard and Vietnam veteran, and was very good - and methodical and precise - working with computers, genealogy and software.  According to FamilySearch Family Tree, Russ was my 10th cousin with Bridget (Scudder?) (Verry) Giles (c1600-1680) our common ancestor - truly my cousin, Russ!

I posted this on Facebook on May 11:

"I am so sad to hear of the passing of my dear friend and colleague Russ Worthington today. What a shock. Russ was an excellent, meticulous, knowledgeable and wise genealogist. More importantly, he was a fine friend, and teacher, and Zoom host. We roamed all over downtown Salt Lake City during RootsTech and I always enjoyed his company. Cousin Russ will always be remembered by all who participated in Mondays With Myrt and attended conferences and seminars. Russ was selfless - he was always willing to help someone - he helped me with New Jersey research and cemetery photos and tried mightily to solve my Knapp brick wall. Russ was one of a kind, and I am proud to have know him for over 12 years. The photo below is with Pat Richley-Erickson because it's fitting, and because I'm always taking photos and resisting being in them. Rest in peace, Russ. I send Linda and my condolences and love to Patti Applebey-Worthington and family."

I found that I didn't have many photos of me with Russ, so my Facebook friends helped out:

The RootsTech conference was where we met up for almost every year since 2012 (I missed 2019) and it was the best of times - the Expo Hall, the Keynote talks, the MyHeritage parties, the FamilySearch dinners, the DearMYRTLE after-parties.  Here is a photo of Russ, me, Pat and Gordon Erickson:

Russ's Family Tree Maker blog is at  https://ftmuser.blogspot.com/.  There is a wealth of material here - text and how-to videos for users of Family Tree Maker.

Russ's YouTube channel is at  https://www.youtube.com/c/FtmuserBlogspot.  There is a wealth of Family Tree Maker and general genealogy videos on this channel.

Russ was the co-host for Pat Richley-Erickson's webinars, study groups, hangouts and Zoom meetings over the past 12 years.  Pat's YouTube channel has hundreds of videos chronicling their work together - see https://www.youtube.com/c/DearmyrtlePage/videos.

The family wrote an obituary for Henry Russell "Cousin Russ" Worthington III at  https://cochranfuneral.com/obituary/worthington-iii-henry-russell/.

Rest in Peace, my friend.  The Genea-Bloggers and genealogy community will never forget you.

Vauxes in the News -- Charles Vaux Dies in 1946 in Bloomer, Wisconsin

 It's time for another edition of "Vauxes in the News" - a weekly feature from the historical newspapers about persons with the surname Vaux (my 2nd great-grandmother's maiden surname) that are interesting, useful, mysterious, fun, macabre, or add information to my family tree database.

This week's entry is from the Leader-Telegram [Eau Claire, Wis.] newspaper dated 15 November 1946:

The transcription of the article is:

"Charles Vaux, 76, Buried at Bloomer

"BLOOMER, Wis. {Special) -- The Rev. A. R. Boer officiated at funeral services Wednesday afternoon for Charles Vaux, 76, who died at his home of a heart attack Sunday at 8:45 p.m.  The services were held at the St. John's Lutheran church here.  burial was in the City cemetery.

"He is survived by wife wife, Augusta; a son Ernest, Bloomer; three daughters, Mrs. Helmuth Grossmann, Charles City, La., Mrs. Ray Fullard, Chicago, and Mrs. Ray Schumacher, Webster Grove; one great-grandchild.  A daughter, Mrs. Herman Dallman preceded him in death in 1944."

The source citation is:

"Charles Vaux, 76, Buried at Bloomer," Leader-Telegram [Eau Claire, Wis.] newspaper, Friday, 15 November 1946, page 3, column 1, Charles Vaux obituary;   Newspapers.com   (https://www.newspapers.com : accessed 16 May 2022). 

Charles A. Vaux was born 21 May 1870 in Dunn County, Wisconsin, the son of Josiah and Amelia (Mittlestadt) Vaux.  He married Augusta Dietsche (1870-1952) on 5 November 1892 in Dunn, Wisconsin.  Charles died 10 November 1946 in Bloomer, Wis.  They had five children:

*  Elsa C. Vaux (1893-1944), married 1924 Herman F. Dallman (1897-1953).
*  Ernest Louis Vaux (1896-1968), married 1936 Helene A. Boer (1912-????).
*  Dora Emilie Vaux (1898-1968), married 1921 Helmuth Wilhelm Grossmann (1900-1943).
*  Agnes Anna Vaux (1901-1984), married 1945 Ray Fulford (1902-1978)
*  Aimee Elizabeth Vaux (1904-1987), married 1835 Raymond Emil Schumacher (1898-1982).

I am a first cousin four times removed to Charles Vaux (1870-1946), with common ancestors of James Vaux (1787-1839) and Mary Palmer (1790-1845), who migrated from South Petherton, Somerset, England to Erie County, New York in the early 1830s.

There are hundreds of Vaux "stories" in my family tree - and this was one of them. Life happens, accidentally and intentionally, and sometimes a person has only family members listed in his obituary.  I am glad that I can honor Charles A. Vaux today.

You never know when a descendant, relative or friend will find this blog post and learn something about their ancestors or relatives, or will provide more information about them to me.

                                  =============================================

Disclosure: I have a complimentary subscription to Newspapers.com and have used it extensively to find articles about my ancestral and one-name families.

Genealogy Pot-Pourri - Week Ending 16 May 2022

 Here are the highlights of my family history and genealogy related activities over the past week.

1)  Hosted and moderated the Chula Vista Genealogical Society Research Group meeting on Wednesday with 33 in attendance.  We discussed the 1950 U.S. Census results, Who Do You Think You Are returning in July, the SCGS Jamboree and Genetic Genealogy conferences in August, transcribing records, and decluttering.

2)  Attended the San Diego Genealogical Society program meeting on Saturday, featuring two talks - about Passports and Naturalization - by Rich Venezia.

3)  Published a genealogy biography of  #83 Anne (Angel) Marshman (1749-1795) of Lacock, Hilperton, Devizes, and Trowbridge, Wiltshire, England for the 52 Ancestors series.

4) Transcribed a probate record - 1856 Will of Jesse Seaver of Townsend, Massachusetts - for the Amanuensis Monday series. 

5) AncestryDNA now has 40,065 DNA matches (up 47) for me this past week, with no new ThruLines. MyHeritageDNA now has 10,387 DNA matches (up 18) for me, with no new Theories. Reviewed the new DNA matches on AncestryDNA, MyHeritageDNA, FamilyTreeDNA and 23andMe. Researched and added notes for 2 AncestryDNA matches and added one new ThruLines to RootsMagic.  

6)  There was one session working in the RootsMagic software program to match with and update FamilySearch Family Tree profiles for Seaver families and my ancestral families, with occasional additions to the RootsMagic profiles. I have matched 48,026 of my RootsMagic persons with FamilySearch Family Tree profiles (up 31).

7) Used Web Hints and Record Matches from Ancestry, MyHeritage, Findmypast and FamilySearch to add content and source citations to my RootsMagic profiles. I now have 69,614 persons in my RootsMagic file (up 40 from last week), and 144,880 source citations (up 53). I TreeShared 0 new or modified profiles with my Ancestry Member Tree, and I resolved 612  Ancestry Hints. My current Ancestry Member Tree has Ancestry Record Hints with 25,250 to be resolved, but I work on them almost daily.  

8) Wrote 17 Genea-Musings blog posts last week (Sunday through Saturday), of which one was a press release. The most viewed post last week was 
Rabbit Holes With Randy - Record Hints and RootsMagic Data Entry! with over 182 views.

9) I am still fine here at the Genea-Cave, hunkered down and not going out much after Week 113 of COVID-19 semi-isolation. Linda is at a memory care and skilled nursing facility in Chula Vista 7 miles from home and I visit her for an hour every day - we usually play Uno and she wins about half the time. Visited a cardiologist and learned I will have an angiogram sometime this week before my heart ECG and ultrasound test on Friday. I went to the grocery store on Monday and Friday.  I watched the Padres games and we are now 22-13 on the season (3-3 the last week).  Other than that, it was stay-at-home on the computer doing (mainly) genealogy, plus eating, sleeping, laundry, cleaning, cooking, watching TV news and sports, reading books, napping, and a little yard work.

The transcription of this page is:

a)  Middlesex County, Massachusetts Probate Court Records - Case File 41275, image 2 of 8:

Be it remembered that I Jesse Sea-
ver of Townsend in the county of Mid-
dlesex being as I trust of sound dis-
posing mind & memory but mindful of

heretofore made, in manner following viz

1st. I order all my just debts & Funeral Ex-
penses & the expense of settling my estate
to be paid as soon as convenient after
my decease out of my estate.

2d. I give, devise & bequeath all the rest &
residue of my estate Real Personal & Mix-
ed of every kind & description wherever
situate & however bounded as described
unto my wife Elizabeth Seaver to have
& to hold the same to her, her heirs & as-
signs to her use & behoof forever.

3d. I constitute & appoint my wife Eliza-
beth Seaver sole Executrix of this my last 
Will & Testament.

In Witness whereof I the said Jesse Seaver have
hereunto set my hand & seal this nineteenth
day of December AD 1856.

Signed Sealed Published & Declared
by the said Jesse Seaver as his last
Will & Testament in Presence of us who     Jesse Seaver
in his presence & at his request
have set our hands as Wit-
nesses hereunto.
  Granville Wood

  F.A. Worcester

The source citation for this probate record is:

Middlesex County, Massachusetts, Probate case files, Case file 41275 (8 images), Jesse Seaver of Townsend, 1860; "Middlesex County (Massachusetts) Probate File Papers, 1648-1871," digital images, New England Historical and Genealogical Society, American Ancestors  (https://www.americanancestors.org: accessed 15 May 2022).

Jesse Seaver was born 12 March 1786 in Townsend, Massachusetts, the son of Thomas and Hannah (Wood) Sever.  He married Elizabeth "Betsey" Warren (1786-1865) on 13 October 1810 in Mason, New Hampshire.  She was the daughter of Henchman and Esther (Taylor) Warren.  Jesse died on 18 December 1859 in Townsend, Massachusetts.  They had one known child:

*  Sarah E. Seaver (1832-????) who was in the 1850 census with her parents.

The 1830 and 1840 census had other young persons in the family who may have been children or perhaps boarders or employees.

In his will, he named only his wife as an heir.  Perhaps the daughter Sarah died after 1850 or married and moved away from Massachusetts, although we would expect her to be named if she was living in 1856.

The papers in the Probate File 41,275 in Middlesex County Probate Court records include:

*  10 January 1860:  Order by Probate Court to appear on the second Tuesday of February in Cambridge.  She appeared and made oath on 14 February 1860.

* 14 February 1860:  Elizabeth Seaver of Townsend, Middlesex MA, widow, filed the will of Jesse Seaver late of Townsend, yeoman.

*  14 February 1860:  Will presented, witnesses testified under oath, and will proved.

*  14 February 1860:  Bond of $8000 presented by sureties Elizabeth Seaver and William Adams.  

There is no inventory or account for this probate case.

Jesse Seaver was my 4th cousin 6 times removed, with our common Seaver ancestor being Robert Seaver (1608-1683) of Roxbury, Massachusetts.
