All of these new additions come from Archdiocese of Cincinnati and have been published as part of Findmypast’s exclusive Catholic Heritage Archive. The Archdiocese was erected by Pope Pius VII in 1821 and has a long tradition of being a place of worship for pioneers.

The Church supported the growing influx of German and Irish immigrants and by 1910, around 70% of Cincinnati's citizens were Roman Catholic. These exclusive records detail some of the most important events in their lives.

Cambridgeshire, Licensed Victuallers

Did your ancestor run a pub in Cambridgeshire? Find out with this unique resource, including new records from Newmarket, Ely, Whittelsey and Thorney. Each record normally includes the name and abode of the victualler, the name of the alehouse, tavern or inn, its location and the name and abode of the person providing surety.

The surviving records for Cambridgeshire 1764-1828 are kept in the Cambridgeshire Archives in Ely. They have been photographed and transcribed by members of the Cambridgeshire & Huntingdonshire Family History Society, which has kindly licensed the records for the use of researchers on Findmypast.

4)  NOTES (with source citations as indicated in brackets):  

The family and biography of the descendants of Robert Fletcher has been extensively researched by:

a)  Edward H. Fletcher, "The Descendants of Robert Fletcher of Concord, Mass", published by Rand, Avery & Co., Boston in 1881[1].  However, this family sketch for Samuel Fletcher is relatively poor. 

b) Winifred Lovering Holman, "Robert Fletcher of Concord, Mass. Bay, 1637," 1930[2].

Samuel Fletcher was born in about 1652 in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, the son of William and Lydia (--?--) (Bates) Fletcher.  He was baptized on 1 February 1656/7 in the Chelmsford church which is included in the Chelmsford vital record book, which indicates he was about age 4 at the time of his baptism[3].

He married Hannah Wheeler, daughter of George and Katherine (Pin) Wheeler, on 5 July 1673 in Chelsmford[4].  They had ten children, all recorded in Chelmsford vital records:

* William Fletcher (1673-1753), married 1716 Maqry Foster (1686-1768).
*  Hannah Fletcher (1676-1759), married 1697 Ebenezer Wright (1663-1730).
*  Elizabeth Fletcher (1679-1715), married 1701 Benjamin Butterfield (1679-1715).
*  Samuel Fletcher (1683-1683).
*  Samuel Fletcher (1684-1749), married 1712 Hannah --?-- (1689-1759).
*  Mary Fletcher (1686-1768), married 1715 Jonathan Wheeler (1683-1739.
*  Lydia Fletcher (1689-1766), married 1711 Peletiah Adams (1682-1746).
*  Susanna Fletcher (1692-1717), married 1715 Joseph Chamberlain (1687-1755).
*  Isaac Fletcher (1694-1772), married 1716 Persis Shattuck (1695-1747).
*  Sarah Fletcher (1696-????).

Hannah (Wheeler) Fletcher died on 11 December 1697 in Chelmsford.

Samuel Fletcher married, second, to Sarah (Merriam) Ball (1654-1703), widow of Eleazer Ball (1651-1698), in Concord, Massachusetts[5-6].  They had no children.

After Sarah died in 1703, Samuel Fletcher married, third, to Elizabeth Proctor (1656-1744) on 20 December 1705 in Concord, Massachusetts[7-8].  They had no children. 

Samuel Fletcher of Chelmsford wrote a will on 18 March 1713, which named his eldest son, William Fletcher, as the executor[9].  

Samuel Fletcher died before 18 December 1723, when his widow, Elizabeth, brought the will to the Middlesex County, Massachusetts probate court requesting her thirds and noting that no action had been taken[9].  

When two of the three witnesses under oath on 7 June 1726 stated that they were unsure that the testator was not of sound mind at the time of writing the will, the will was not allowed on 20 June 1726 by the Probate Court judge[9].

The will mentions wife Elizabeth, children Samuel Fletcher, Mary Wheeler, Sarah Fletcher, Susanna Fletcher, Isaac Fletcher, Hannah Wright, Elizabeth Butterfield, Lydia Adams, and William Fletcher (executor), and witnesses Jonathan Barrit, Joshua Fletcher, and Joseph Fletcher[9].

The probate file refers to those present at the hearings on 7 June 1726: Jonathan Wheeler who had married Samuel's daughter Mary, Ebenezer Wright, Sira Butterfield, Sarah Fletcher, Pelatiah Adams, Joseph Chamberlain, Isaac Fletcher, William Fletcher, Samuel Fletcher, and the witnesses[9].

An inventory of the personal property sold, the debts collected, and the debts owed was taken in 1726 but no appraisal of the real or personal property was made.  There is no distribution of the estate included in the probate file[9].

Seavers in the News -- Leonard C. Seaver Dies in Florida in 1950

 It's time for another edition of "Seavers in the News" - a weekly feature from the historical newspapers about persons with the surname Seaver that are interesting, useful, mysterious, fun, macabre, or add information to my family tree database.

This week's entry is from The Miami [Fla.]Herald newspaper dated 29 November 1950:

The transcription of the article is:

"Leonard Seaver Dies; Rites Today

"NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Leonard Calet Seaver, 83, resident of this area for nearly half a century, died Monday at his home in Edgewater.  Mrs. Seaver died last month.

"Services will be at 3 p.m. Wednesday art the First Baptist Church with the Rev. J. Alvin Inman, pastor, officiating.  He will be assisted by the Rev. J. W. Hinton, pastor of Edgewater Baptist Church.

"Surviving are four daughters, Mrs. Ernestine Rogero, this city; Mrs. Helen Widdis, Edgewater; Mrs. Winnie L. Pitts, Newberry, S.C.; Mrs. Marty Hallett, Fern Clermont; Paul L., Jacksonville; Robert F., Boston, Mass.; Henry G., Winter Park; 23 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

"Settke Funeral Home is in charge"

The source citation is:

"Leonard Seaver Dies; Rites Today,The Miami [Fla.] Herald newspaper, obituary, Wednesday, 29 November 1950, page 2, column 3, Leonard C. Seaver obituary;  Newspapers.com   (https://www.newspapers.com : accessed 8 April 2021).

This obituary provides a name, an age, a death date and place, and the names of his children.  However, there is nothing about his occupation or interests, birthplace, wife's name, parents or siblings.

Leonard Calhoun Seaver was born 26 May 1866 in Jefferson County, Florida, the son of Enoch Edward and Angeline Caroline "Ansy" (Thomas) Seaver.  He died 23 November 1950 in Edgewater, Florida.  He married Mary Lovinia Simmons on 25 December 1893 in Osceola County, Florida.  They had eight children:

*  Ernestine E. Seaver (1894-1976), married (1) 1912 Earl Raymond Murray (1882-1935); (2) 1940 Joseph Augustus Rogero (1890-1952).
*  Clarence Raymond Seaver (1896-1940).
*  Robert Franklin Seaver (1898-????), married 1923 Gertrude Shea (1898-1974).
*  Paul Loren Seaver (1900-1992), married (1) 1921 Lola Yarborough (1903-1954); (2) Noreen Whitehead (1905-1993).
*  Gilbert Henry Seaver (1904-1964), married 1931 Anna Lulu Grindle (1907-1964).
*  Winnifred Louise Seaver (1909-1991), married 1926 Levi Clarence Pitts (1904-1961).
*  Mary Anzy Seaver (1911-1978), married Clement John Southcote Hallett (1886-1980).
*  Helen Ruth Seaver (1914-1996), married 1930 James Wesley Widdis (1910-1974).

I am not related to Leonard C. Seaver since he is descended from a line of Severs in Georgia, the earliest known being John Sever (1760-1799) in Georgia. 

There are over 10,000 Seaver "stories" in my family tree - and this was one of them.   Life happens, accidentally and intentionally, and sometimes a person has a short obituary with many children. I am glad that I can honor Leonard C. Seaver today.  

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

Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1656 Baptism of Samuel Fletcher in Chelmsford, Massachusetts

 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 1656 baptism entry for Samuel Fletcher in the Chelmsford, Massachusetts town vital record book:
The birth entry is near the middle of the page:
The baptism record transcription for Samuel Fletcher is:

"[Fletcher] Samuel, s. W[illia]m, bp. 1: 12 m : 1656, a. abt. 4 y. P.R.1."

  The source citation for this record is:

Town of Chelmsford, Massachusetts, Vital Records of Chelmsford, Massachusetts to the Year 1850 (Salem, Mass. : The Essex Institute, 1914), Births, page 66, Samuel Fletcher baptism entry, 1: 12 mo: 1656, aged about 4 years.

This is an entry in a transcribed and alphabetized vital record book for Chelmsford, Massachusetts, so it is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the baptism of Samuel Fletcher and the name of his father.

Samuel Fletcher (1652-1723) was the son of William Fletcher and his second wife Lydia (--?--) Bates (1622-1704) of Chelmsford, Massachusetts.  Samuel married Hannah Wheeler (1649-1697) in 1672 in Chelmsford, and they had ten children,

Samuel and Hannah (Wheeler) Fletcher are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son Samuel Fletcher (1684-1749) who married Hannah --?-- (16881759) in about 1712 in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.

Uploaded a New GEDCOM to MyHeritage, and Created a 10-Generation Fan Chart

 Every 12 to 18 months I try to upload a new GEDCOM to MyHeritage so that I can received Record Matches to the new profiles I have added to my RootsMagic family tree, and also to try to help MyHeritage find common ancestors for my MyHeritageDNA matches by expanding the descendants of my 4th and 5th great-grandparents.

I make excellent progress every fall and winter in adding new profiles - mostly descendants of my ancestors - to my RootsMagic tree (I lose 2-3 genealogy hours a day due to baseball games on TV in the spring and summer!).  I now have three trees on MyHeritage:

*  October 2018 - 50,883 profiles.  This one is connected to my DNA and I haven't figured out how to delete it.

*  January 2020 - 56,012 profiles.  This one is probably superfluous now.

*  April 2021 - 62,622 profiles.  This is totally up-to-date as of today, but it will be out-of-date soon.  I want to connect it to my DNA test.  Maybe someone can help me figure this out!  

In RootsMagic 7, I created a GEDCOM file using File > Export and selecting the information to include.  Here is the progress near the end of the GEDCOM creation:

The GEDCOM creation took less than 5 minutes, and resulted in a 59 mb file.  I saved it to my RootsMagic > GEDCOM file folder on my computer.

Then I uploaded it to MyHeritage using Family Tree > Import GEDCOM and telling MyHeritage the file path and file name:

This took about an hour to complete because it's a BIG tree.  I went out and did some yard work and got some sun and watered the plants for the first time in months.  They loved it!

When I came back in, the GEDCOM file had been uploaded and I made myself the primary person in it.  MyHeritae lets the user make a 10-generation fan chart - here's part of mine:


As you can see - I'm not done with my family tree!  I have significant brick walls in every quadrant.  And the tree continues back in time because I have a LOT of New England colonial ancestors, mainly from England, and some from Germany, France and Netherlands, and few from Ireland, Scandinavia or other European countries.  Then there is my 1% Native American DNA - which is probably a 5th or 6th great-grandparent from eastern Canada.

Now I'm all set for the next calculation of Theory of Family Relativity and for new Record Matches for my new profiles.  MyHeritage calculates all of the Record Matches for profiles soon after they are uploaded, and the Record Matches include all of their record collections (unlike Ancestry which provides Record Hints from only their largest record collections, and provides them only when a profile is changed or stimulated).  

I use the RootsMagic Web Hints to add MyHeritage Record Matches by hand to my RootsMagic tree.  I also synchronize (using RootsMagic "TreeShare") my RootsMagic tree with my Ancestry Member Tree every week.  I need to add an updated tree to Findmypast now, especially since I've added many new profiles of UK and Irish persons in the past two years.

C'mon MyHeritage - bring those new Theories of Family Relativity on, and bring on the Record Matches for my new profiles - I'm ready!!

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

Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and have received other material consideration in past years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product. This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.

My Sailor Father Animated in 1944 -- Post 663 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

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


My father, Frederick W. Seaver (1911-1983), married my mother in July 1942.  He enlisted in the United States Navy in August 1944, and this is a photograph from about that time.  I animated it using the MyHeritage animation tool with the "Kiss and wink" animation.  

This photograph was originally black-and-white and I colorized it and enhanced using the MyHeritage InColor photo tools.  I don't see any significant flaws in the colorizing of this photograph.
