Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1705 Marriage of John Fisher and Abigail Smith in Medfield, Massachusetts

It's Treasure Chest Tuesday - 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 1705 marriage record of John Fisher and Abigail Smith in the Medfield, Massachusetts town vital record book:

The Fisher/Smith marriage record is: 

The transcription of this record is:

"[FISHER] John and Abigail Smith, Apr. 23, 1705*"

The source citation for this record is:

Vital Records of Medfield, Massachusetts to the Year 1850 (Boston, Mass. : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1903), Marriages, page 140, John Fisher and Abigail Smith entry, 23 April 1705.

This is a Derivative Source record for the marriage of John Fisher and Abigail Smith. It is Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the marriage date and place, and the names of John and Abigail. The original record is probably a Medfield town record that has been lost over the centuries.

John Fisher (1677-1727) was the son of John and Hannah (Adams) Fisher of Medfield, Massachusetts.  Abigail Smith (1686-1725) was the daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Clarke) Smith of Medfield. John and Abigail (Smith) Fisher are my 7th great-grandparents, through their daughter Abigail Fisher (1711-1785) who married John Plimpton (1708-1756) in 1731 in Medfield.

Dear Randy: "Can You Combine Three Ancestry Trees Into One Using RootsMagic?"

Reader Mary asked that question, noting she had just obtained RootsMagic and needs to combine three Ancestry trees into one tree.

Here is my response to Mary:

Yes, it is possible to merge three Ancestry trees into RootsMagic and make one tree.  

A)  There are two processes that can be used - here's the GEDCOM way:

1)  Go online to Ancestry in the "Trees" tab.  At the bottom of the dropdown menu is "Create & manage trees."  Click on that to see your list of trees.  Pick a tree, and click on "Manage tree" for that tree.  That opens the "Tree Settings" for that tree.  There is an "Export tree" button that will create a GEDCOM file for your Tree #1.

2)  Do the same for your Tree #2 and your Tree #3.  Know where those files are on your computer - find the file folders and file names for all three trees.

3)  Open RootsMagic, and on the "File" tab you can click "Import" and then select GEDCOM file.  You can import Tree #1 to RootsMagic by telling RM where to find the file on your computer.  Once you click on your Tree #1 GEDCOM file name, you want to create a new RootsMagic file, so select "Create a New Database."

4)  Once you have Tree #1 imported from the GEDCOM file, do the same thing to import Tree #2.  But select "Combine into the database" to add Tree #2 to Tree #1.  

5)  Then do the same thing for Tree #3 to get all three trees into one larger tree.

6)  If you have identical persons in the three Ancestry trees, then you should merge those identical persons into one person using the "Tools" and "Merge" feature in RootsMagic.

RootsMagic has a great "Help" button on the top menu bar.  click on that and select the "Search" tab and search for "Importing a GEDCOM file" to give you better step-by-step instructions.  For merging individuals, search for the "Manual merges" help.  

Note that by using a GEDCOM file, you will not download images from your Ancestry trees, but you will get your Notes and sources along with the names, dates, places, events, etc.  

B)  There is another option, and this one will download the Ancestry images using the TreeShare way:

1)  RootsMagic has a TreeShare feature that enables you to synchronize your RootsMagic and Ancestry trees one tree at a time.  Using TreeShare, the images attached to your Ancestry tree will be downloaded to RootsMagic.  You will have to TreeShare your three Ancestry trees one at a time in order to get everything.  When you have all three trees TreeShared, pick Tree #1 to be the Master database - and copy it (don't rename it!) to a new tree - call it Tree "M" - so that your Master tree is no longer named Tree #1.  You can save and rename Tree "M" anything you want.

2)  Open Tree #2 in RootsMagic, with "File" "Open" and pick Tree #2.  You should see Tree #2 in a 2nd window.  Then "Drag and drop" a person in Tree #2 over to Tree M.  You will be given a choice of who to drag and drop.  You can choose to drag and drop everyone in the Tree #2 database into Tree M. See "Dragging and dropping people" in "Help" for more detailed instructions.  

3)  When Tree #2 is done, you now have a bigger Tree M.  Close Tree #2 and open tree #3 and drag and drop everyone in Tree #3 into Tree M.  Now you have everybody in all three trees in Tree M.  Trees #1, #2, and #3 still exist as separate trees in your files and on Ancestry.  

4)  You will have to merge duplicate profiles.  I am not sure if the "Media" files will be in one file folder (for File "M" or in three separate file folders (for File #1, #2 and #3).  If they are in three file folders, then copy them all into the File "M" Media folder and see if that works. 

5)  You can then use Tree M to TreeShare back into Ancestry as a new tree if you wish so that your RM tree M is synced with your Ancestry Tree M.  See the "TreeShare for Ancestry" article in "Help" for more detailed instructions. 

C)  One thing that may be critical is to keep Tree #1 #2 and #3 separate on your computer so you can do the whole process again if you mess up.  Rename Tree #1 as Tree "M" (your choice of names) before you do the drag and drop work.

  I hope this helps.  It's complicated, but it can be done.

Lori and Tami at Easter 1991 -- Post 630 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! I found some more family photos hiding in Linda's family photo boxes. This is one of my favorite photographs:

This photograph was taken at Easter 1991, in front of our church in Chula Vista.  Daughter Lori on the left was almost 17, and was as tall as I am (in her heels).  Daughter Tami on the right was 14 years old and was still growing. Aren't they beautiful?  I was 47 in this photo and still didn't have any hair and my beard was graying.  The church has always had a wooden cross that parishioners could bring flowers and attach them to the wire mesh on the cross at Easter time.  I don't know who the little boy on the ladder is.

These photos were scanned from photographs created from developed film prints and are not particularly sharp, but they are what we have!

Several times a year when our children were growing up, Linda sent photographs to her parents and brother in San Francisco. When her father died in 2002, her brother sorted out the photos and gave Linda the ones that were of our family and the ones interacting with them. They were given to us in a big box of stuff back in 2006, and we finally looked at them last year! I've started digitizing them for use in these Wordless Wednesday posts.

Tombstone Tuesday -- Abigail (Fisher) (Plimpton) Clark (1711-1785) in Vine Lake Cemetery, Medfield, Mass.

I have collected a number of gravestone photographs from my own camera and from Find A Grave memorials over many years, and thought I would share them one at a time for Tombstone Tuesday.

Here is the gravestone of my 6th great-grandmother, Abigail (Fisher) (Plimpton) Clark (1711-1785) in Vine Lake Cemetery in Medfield, Massachusetts:


The inscription from the photograph is:

In memory of
the widow Abigail
Clark, who died Feb.
19 1785 in y'e
743th year of her
age

The source citation for this gravestone is:

Find a Grave, database and images (https://www.findagrave.com : accessed 10 August 2020), memorial page for Abigail Fisher Plimpton Clark (10 Sep 1711–19 Feb 1785), Find a Grave Memorial no. 17200320, citing Vine Lake Cemetery, Medfield, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, USA ; Maintained by Julie Nathanson (contributor 46867640) .

Thank you to Julie Nathanson for creating this Find A Grave memorial and for taking this photograph.

John Plimpton (1708-1756) and Abigail Fisher (1711-1785) 
are my 6th great-grandparents.   John was the son of John Plimpton (1680-1730) and Susanna Draper (1688-1769). Abigail; was the daughter of John Fisher (1677-1727) and Abigail Smith (1686-1726).  John and Abigail married in 1731 in Medfield Mass., and had 5 children, including Amos Plimpton (1735-1808), my 5th great-grandfather, who married Mary Guild (1735-1800) in 1756.

Monday Genea-Pourri - Week Ending 10 August 2020

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

1)  Attended the 1 August Chula Vista Genealogical Society board meeting where we decided to expand our Zoom program offerings to other San Diego societies.  Wrote, edited and published via email the August 2020 edition of the CVGS Newsletter.


2)  Watched the San Diego Genealogical Society program Zoom webinar on Saturday, with Marshall Clow and Claire McKarns in two sessions.

3)  Participated in Mondays With Myrt today.  We discussed the MyHeritage search improvements, JewishGen, the Ancestry sale, British Newspaper Archive, personal history and memories, Zoom bombing, and Zoom meetings.

4)  Watched one Family Tree Webinar -- "Using DNA to Solve Adoption and Unknown Parentage Mysteries" by Michelle Leonard.  Lots of great techniques and tips here.

5)  Wrote and posted a biographical sketch of 7th great-grandfather #552 John Plimpton  (1680-1730) for my 52 Ancestors biographical sketch on Friday.  

6)  Transcribed the 1704 Division of the real estate of Joseph Clark (1642-1702) of Medfield, Mass.  for Amanuensis Monday.  The real estate totaled £775.

7)  Added 1 AncestryDNA ThruLine to my RootsMagic tree, and added Notes to 4 more AncestryDNA matches with cM values, relationships and known common ancestors.  Ancestry added 78 new DNA Matches this past week.  Reviewed new DNA matches on AncestryDNA, MyHeritageDNA, FamilyTreeDNA and 23andMe.  

8) There were several sessions 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 36,918 of my RootsMagic persons with FamilySearch Family Tree profiles (up 14).

9)  Used Web Hints and Record Matches from Ancestry, MyHeritage, Findmypast and FamilySearch to add content and sources to my RootsMagic profiles.  I now have 58,543 persons in my RootsMagic file (up 8), and 125,400 source citations (up 259).   I TreeShared with my Ancestry Member Tree one time this week updating 132 profiles, and I resolved 776 Ancestry Hints.  I've fallen behind on the Ancestry Record Hints with 132,193 to be resolved, but I work on them almost daily.    

10)  Wrote 17 Genea-Musings blog posts last week, of which three were a press release.  The most popular post last week was Blackstone to Acquire Ancestry.com for $4.7 Billion - My Comments with over 562 views.  

11)  We are still fine here at the Genea-cave, hunkered down and not going out much.  I went to the grocery store on Monday and Friday, and it wasn't too busy.  Church opened again with an outside service and we attended on Sunday.  Linda had a dentist appointment on Tuesday and an eye appointment on Thursday and I got a haircut on Tuesday.  Other than that, it was stay-at-home on the computer doing genealogy, eating, sleeping and a little yard work, watching the Padres games, and reading a book I read a portion of back in 2002.

The source citation for this probate case file is:

Suffolk County, Massachusetts, Probate case files, Packet #2,794 (11 images), Joseph Clark of Medfield, administration granted 1703; "Suffolk County, MA: Probate File Papers, 1636-1893," indexed database and digital images, New England Historical and Genealogical Society, American Ancestors (https://www.AmericanAncestors.org : accessed 22 July 2020); from records supplied by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Archives, digitized images provided by FamilySearch.org.

Joseph Clark (1642-1702) died intestate on 4 September 1702 in Medfield.   He married Mary Allen (1642-1702) in 1663, and they had 12 children between 1664 and 1685.  Only five children (Joseph, Esther, Solomon, David and Aaron) were alive, or had heirs, in 1702.

This probate packet contains 11 pages, including the Letter of Administration (with administrators sons Joseph Clark and Solomon Clark), an inventory of the real and personal estate of Joseph Clark,  The inventory was taken 13 March 1702/3 and totaled 1,023 pounds, 4 shillings and 1 pence, of which the real estate totaled about 775 pounds.  There is no account or indication of how the personal property was divided. 

The committee of five Medfield men had a challenge dividing the real property.  Each child's portion amounted to about 129 pounds (since the eldest son received a double portion of about 258 pounds).  In 1725, the committee men informed the probate court that the division should have included another half parcel of land to Aaron Clark, but it was overlooked.  The Court ordered the half parcel of land directed to Aaron Clark. 

Joseph and Mary (Allen) Clark are my 8th great-grandparents, through their son Joseph Clark (1664-1731) who married Mary Wight (1667-1705) in 1686.
