Interesting Finds

List interesting finds to share with the guest at the end of the week
Elizabeth Montgomery's Homestead Patent
  • GGG-grandfather Moses Henry Chatham was killed at age 40, leaving 8 children and a widow. (Gena has written a blog post about this) His eldest son, Henry was killed by being struck in the head about 2 years later.
Murder in Austin County
C. R Donn victim of Insane Horse Thief
  • A Donn Family Quirk? I believe this article may refer to your GGG-Grandfather, Casjen Donn's grandson, Casjen Reiners Donn (1899-1963) and his son James? A little more investigation would be needed, but quite a detailed story.
A True Story that Rivals Fiction
  • Oscar Philibert's ancestors Jean Baptiste Toupin and Marie Gloria married on 3 June 1669 at Notre-Dame de Québec, just after their widowed parents, Toussaint Toupin and Marie Bourdon, married each other. You can view the respective marriage acts here.
  • Oscar was a descendant of more than 20 filles du roi. They were recruited to help expand the population of Canada, and were provided financial assistance by the royal treasury. For specific examples, refer to Oscar Philibert's Ancestral Tables linked below.
  • Gena's 10X great-grandfather Thomas Skidmore (1605-1684), is her immigrant ancestor on this line. It is estimated that Thomas immigrated in 1636 and he is included in Robert Charles Anderson's, The Great Migration Directory: Immigrants to New England, 1620-1640 on pages 306-7. There is a Skidmore One-Name Study at [Skidmore and Scudamore Family History]
  • Gena's 7X great-grandmother, Agnes "Ann" or "Granny" Skidmore was a nurse mid-wife in the 1770s (nurse mid-wives were called "grannies" back then). Her transactions at the local store are noted on her profile page.
