Family Charts

length. In some cases, we go beyond three generations when the information is readily available.

In other cases, when information is lacking, the charts are two generations. We have shortened some family chart branches because no one in the truncated branch is buried in the cemetery. However, the information for the truncated branch is available to those who wish to have it.

The following conventions were used in the family chart diagrams:

>>       Persons we know (or strongly suspect) are buried in the cemetery are shown in a gray, double-lined box and thus are readily identifiable.
>>       All other family members are shown in white, single-lined boxes
>>       Marriages are indicated by lines with arrows on each end. The date above such a line is the date of marriage, when we have that information.
>>       In cases where an individual had more than one spouse, we indicate this by referring to a first and second husband or wife.
>>       A line descending from the marriage line lists children issuing from a marriage.
>>       Some names have an asterisk (*) next to them. The reader is being referred to one or more family charts listed in the upper right portion of the chart where it says “*See ___ Chart.” The * indicates this person can be found on more than one chart.
>>       We have identified married females by their maiden names when we can. The reader should be mindful of this in going to the obituaries where the woman will be identified by her married name. When we have been unsuccessful in locating a maiden name, the wife’s married name is used.
>>       A short, descending from a marriage line with a plus sign (+) beneath it refers to a truncated portion of the chart. More information is available upon request.
We believe the data are reasonably accurate. Much of the information we have used was culled from Census data from 1850 to 1910 (there is very limited data available from the 1890 Census because a fire destroyed most of it). The obituaries presented in Chapter 4 were extremely helpful in listing spouses, parents, children, and/or siblings and provided an initial core of information for developing our charts. We have attempted to correct errors we found in the obituaries when the information was available.

Generally, the family charts are listed in a rough alphabetical order. In order to fit several charts on a page, it was sometimes necessary to violate strict alphabetical placement.

At the end of this chapter, there is an extensive, alphabetized list of all people (3000+) who are included in the charts and the chart(s) on which they are located. This should make the search for a specific person relatively easy. People who are buried in the cemetery are listed in CAPITAL LETTERS. Women are often listed twice or more: based on maiden name and also by married name(s). We think this will also be helpful to researchers.
