We go to the grocery store and we no longer take a cart from the outside. We go inside and select one that has been cleaned.


It is week three of my sequestration. The numbers of the Corona Virus patients continues to climb. Maybe only 1% of the earth's population is effected, I am scared. The United States of America continues to see it's numbers grow. The lack of coordination from local, state and federal government is disconcerting.

Working on Fayette Austin Census

15 Sep 2018

I find it "strange" that growing up I only heard about my father's father's parents and the Irish heritage that contributed to my makeup. "I was descendent from the ancient kings of Ireland" so my father said. I have done sone research on the Walsh side of the family, and still working on it.

My father's mother was German. I have hit a brickwall but I do go back and work on it when the opportunity arises. I hope to make another trip to Missouri to continue my research.

My mother's family is more interesting. I qualify to join the DAR from my mother's father DeGraff Austin family. Much has already been documented.

My mother's mother's mother was from England, and met her future husband in Illinois I think. My mother use to have their love letters. (Wonder where they are now.) I know I have distance cousins in Canada.


In what I believe was the summer of 1967, I was in Floral Park. My father, mother, sister, myself were probably visiting from South Carolina. It would have been my grandparent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. I believe that my grandfather (my father's father) was extremely proud that they had made it to 50 years as none of his siblings had done so. Most had either died or out lived their respective spouses before reaching that milestone. One of my grandmother's sisters was visiting (Stella or Hazel). She told us that my grandmother was older that she told people. She was actually older that my grandfather. There was some mention of her taking the birth date of a younger sister who had passed away. There was also mention of a twin. Originally I thought that either Stella or Hazel had a female twin that died and Laura had used her birthday. I have since learned that Laura was a twin. While they were christened together in 1888, there is no further information on Clara.

Hi Patricia, thanks for your work on Lafontaine-58. As you can see this profile has been reserved for teaching purposes, and has a sign on it saying not to edit it. It is generating errors, but fixing those errors is part of the training purpose.

In your changes to Elizabeth (Cockerill) Collins you cited pages 434 and 455 of "the same text" [presumably referring to Anderson] yet I am not finding anything on pages 434 or 455 referring to Francis Collins and Hannah. Would you please correct the source information for that? S

Looking to connect with you.

In old papers I have come up with original letters of Claudius and Philo Hurlbut. Would like to share them with you. Gil Hurlbut North Reading MA [email address removed]

Hi Patricia,

What is the source for the death date you updated for Mary Austin-1014 Lincoln? I don't see it referenced in the body of the bio (nor was the earlier date). It would be great if a source for her death date was added to the bio. Thanks.

Hi, Patricia.

Did you know that WikiTree asks us to put the references tag (the one enclosed in < / >) directly below the Sources heading and and above any bulleted sources? (Yes, it is hard to keep up with some of these directives. And yes, I will agree with you that the current version of Help:Biographies is not entirely clear on these points. But the perfectly formatted example at is unambiguous.)

What source shows John Browne was the son of William Browne and his wife Sarah Smith? According to quality sources on -1058's profile, their son John had different birth and death dates. I have not been able to find a source for John Browne-722's parentage, and any sources you can add would be helpful.

Thank you

Hi Patricia,

I'm curious why you removed the parents of William Browne-1052 when there is a quality source in his profile showing the parents?

Thanks for the source on Allen-6401

I appreciate your added sourcing so very much. Thank you. However, aren't the sources of vital records credible enough in the original sources, adding an outside source can lead to more errors and more places for errors to occur? Weird engineering ideologies...
