Being a Marlborough native born on 7/18/36, I enjoyed so very much viewing your materials on Marlborough. I remember so many of the events listed. I have been President of The Friends of the Marlborough Public Library for 42 years and a Trustee of the Library over 40 years and have witnessed so many changes in the City.
Best regards, Ray Johnson

Hi John;

I'm one of a few residents fighting the City from taking land from Ward Park for the proposed Senior Center.

We are preparing another news release (for June 10), One point several people keep bringing up is a 'spring' in Ward Park. I can find absolutely no reference to a spring, and was hoping you could shed some light on that.

If you'd like to throw in you two cents about anything regarding Ward Park, it would be appreciated.

Thanks

These photos brought back many memories for my husband Ray and I. Our former High School, now the Walker Building is certainly an impressive site when coming down West Main St.
We are happy to say we still enjoy living here and have no plans for moving from Marlborough.

The books that hold so many photos and stories about our fair city are sold by many businesses in and around Marlborough and also available through the Historical Society. They make great Coffee Table books. They are well written and hold so many memories.

I am a Mohawk Native American,I believe a direct descendant of Timothy Rice, Indian captive from Marlboro in 1702. Timothy married a Mohawk woman on our reservation Kahnawake, the non-natives used the name 'Caughnawaga' until we finally were able to have it changed to its original Mohawk spelling. A few items of interest; John Taiaiake Rice, born in 1811 (died 1892) was the only steamship pilot on the St. Lawrence River, to take the ship over the Lachine Rapids. In the 20th Century most of the Rice families lived Brooklyn, N.Y., they were structural iron workers, building N.Y.'s skyline

Gwe Gwe (Hello) - I am a decendant of Silas Rice and Marie Tsiakohawi. Silas Rice and his brother Timothy Rice were taken from Marlboro, Mass. on August 8, 1704 by an Iroquois raiding party and taken to Canada. Silas was born on April 10,1695 and died in Caughnawaga (modern name Kahnawake Mohawk Territory) in 1779. I trace my Iroquois lineage from Silas Tookanowras and Marie Tsiakohawi. Silas's lineage was Edmund and Tamazine Rice, Samuel and Elizabeth Rice and Edmund and Ruth Rice, who were the parents of Silas and Timothy Rice. I stopped by the St. Francis Xavier Mission Church in Kahnawake on one of my many visits back to see my family and asked about the church records. They were kept by the Jesuits who wrote down my family tree along with many others in Kahnawake. I was so intrigued by the history in my possession that my husband and I stopped in Marlboro, Mass. and asked about the Rice family and were given copies of their records. The Rice family history was the same and I had the rest of the history of Silas from the Mohawk/Iroquois side. I only recently discovered your website and it's great. Now you know that Silas lived on through the centuries through my people. My father was Joseph Katsiehaien Hemlock from Kahnawake Quebec Canada. He was born March 2, 1922 in Kahnawake. My dad married my mother, Vivian Seth (Irish) in 1948 and made their home in Johnstown, PA. We traveled back to Kahnawake several times a year all through my life to visit family. I am his daughter, Susan Kaienteres Hemlock-Vizza and live in Johnstown, PA. There are many Rice families in Kahnawake and my great-aunt and great-uncle were Angus and Ida Rice. Just wanted to share the history of Silas and I hope if there is anyone who can add to this or has any questions that I could answer, please get in touch. Ona (Good-bye)

Received the following email

John -

If you haven't seen this new material that I have spent the last five years sorting out - you might want to add it to the notes on Marlborough families -- or put it anywhere you deem logical --

Thanks,
Judy Schreiber


The first William Kerly, born abt 1602 at Ashmore, Dorset, England, married an Ann White in England in 1625. They had 3 recorded and surviving children, Mary b. 1627, married Richard Smith, Sr; Henry b. 1632; and William, Jr b. 1633, all at Ashmore. He is noted in the History of Sudbury as having been there by 1637 and is known to have married two more times after the death of Ann White Kerly in 1658 at Lancaster, Britchet Bradstreet Rowlandson and Rebecca Jude Josselyn, Rebecca having survived as his widow when he died in 1670 at Lancaster.

A second William Kerley, Capt., b. 1621 according to "Ages from Court Records 1636 to 1700, Vol.I: Essex, Middlesex, and Suffolk Counties,Massachusetts"; Melinde Lutz Sanborn, Gen.Pub.Co., 2003
-William Kerly....age 45 in 1666....MCC folio 40
-William Kerly.....46 in 1667....MCC folio 44
is the William I believe to be the William who came to America aboard "The Confidence" in 1638 with whom is commonly believed to be his brother Edmond, b. 1616 according to the listing of passengers for that ship. He (William) is thought to have gone directly to Sudbury but I have found this listing in a posting on the internet which has since been removed, probably because of it's inflammatory content -
http://members.aol.com/wdwylie6/1600-1649.htm
1641 - On December 7, “William Kersley shall personally appeare at the next General Court of our said soueraigne lord the King, to be holden for this gouernment, to answere to all such matters as shalbe (on his said master's behalf) objected against him for vncleane carriages towards men that he hath lyen withall, and abide the further order of the Court, and not depart the same without lycence; that then, et cetera.ö 241
http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?rank=1&gsfn=william&gsln=kersley&=&f5=&f6=&f7=&f16=&f17Day=&f17Month=&f17Year=&gskw=&prox=1&f17=++&db=greatmigrationindex&ti=0&ti.si=0&gl=&gss=rfs&gst=&so=3
With ANTHONY ANNABLE, Henry Rowley was bondsman for William Kersley of Barnstable on 7 December 1641 [PCR 2:28].
(The name Kersley is also noted as a spelling for Kerley.)

We know this second William appears in Sudbury around 1645/6 as that is when he married Anna King, daughter of Thomas King, another of the first settlers of Sudbury. This William is noted in Marlborough in 1669 where he died in 1684, his widow Anna surviving him there, and I believe this couple to be the parents of Bartholomew, b. according to: "American Genealogical-Biographical Index (AGBI) about Bartholomew Carley
Name: Bartholomew Carley
Birth Date: 1650
Birthplace: Massachusetts
Volume: 25
Page Number: 70
Reference: Gen. Column of the " Boston Transcript". 1906-1941.( The greatest single source of material for gen. Data for the N.E. area and for the period 1600-1800. Completely indexed in the Index.): 22 Mar 1933, 6185 " -- (This Bartholomew is commonly attributed to be a son of Capt. Henry Kerley and his first wife, Elizabeth White Kerley, who was killed during the Massacre at Lancaster in 1676, but there is no mention of any other survivors of the Kerley family, other than known children of that couple. [Henry married the following year, Elizabeth Ward Howe, daughter of William and Elizabeth Ward of Sudbury and Marlborough, widow of John Howe, Jr., and they had at least 4 children, two daughters named and noted in his Will and at least two sons, unnamed, but noted by one of Henry's biographer's, as being the Mariner, William Carley, who was married to Mary Bowden in Boston in 1703 by Cotton Mather, and whose son, William, Jr was the founder with wife Martha Patty Carter Kerly, of the Kearley family later of VA and NC.] Bartholomew appears to be the only child of William and Anna.)

The third William, b. 1633 in England, son of the first William, married a Jane Unknown at Sudbury in 1666 and was buried in the Robbins Cemetery, East Village of Lexington in 1719 along with his wife Jane, who also died there in 1721. This William left Sudbury and appears to have lived from 1670 to 1675 at
Lancaster, but not at Marlborough at all. Their children were all females and are noted in his Will of 1719 along with his widow, Jane.

Almost all of the written history of this family is centered around this second William, b 1621, although it is noted in the Sudbury history that there was a William, Sr, (b 1602), who most attribute to be the second William and claim that he, the first William, is the one who came to America on the Confidence -- an impossibility when one stops to thoroughly read this above information. This William, Sr was the person responsible for the laying out of roads and designing of bridges in the Sudbury/Lancaster area and was generally associated with other settlers of the same age group, whereas the second William was tied to the Colony Artillery and involved in the defense of these townships during the King Phillip Wars.

I was just wondering how you know that Ella Warren Freeman is the daughter of Barzilla and Elizabeth Freeman? And how you know that Eliz. is the wife of Barzilla Freeman? The gravestones do not indicate their relationship. Although it certainly is a good conjecture. Just wondering.

from your site:

This is the best city website I have ever seen. It's very user friendly, and it really gave me a feel for Marlboro, where my families lived from 1830 to 1965. I really appreciate the information you have included.

Are you planning to add anything regarding the industry of the town? I saw the postcards of the 3 shoe factories. Will there be anything more?

Oh, and by the way, I'd be happy to tell you the reason that no member of my family will ever vote for a Kennedy! It's a Marlboro story.

Thank you for all your good work.

I just found this website as I was researching my ancestors. Edmund Rice is my 10th Great Grandfather along a direct line. I knew I was related to the Wheelock family but only recently found out more about the Rice line. (Samuel Wheelock married Lydia Rice in 1692)

Thank you for creating this website. I love reading all the stories and knowing more of the history instead of just names and dates.

Thanks,

Back in 1962 through 1985 Marlboro was my home. Mechanic Street and the surrounding streets, Where a lovely place to grow up. This area was what Movies could have been based on... neighborhood & Family cookouts, outdoor sleep overs, playing "tin can oleno" with my neighborhood pals until we couldn't see in the dark any more, and going to the corner store (Marciarelli's)for my Mum or Memere and and while I'm there maybe 1 or 2 peices of penny candy for me. French Hill for years (where my Memere and then my Mom and her siblings grew up) - was just that "French Hill". But as they say, all good things must come to an end and alass my Marlboro is not a "Country Kind of City anymore" It is just a city. No more knowing just about everybody that lived there, no more walking home from the park or local tavern after 10:00 P.M., no more French Hill. But I am so Glad I knew Marlboro when, and no one can take those glorious memories from me and that is the Marlboro I think of when I hear that city's name and it makes me smile every time...

There are five entries of Payments made to him with certificate numbers that correlate to the Seventh and Fourth (old ninth) Regiments of Massachusetts. From Massachusetts, it would appear that he headed north to New Hampshire.

We are trying to connect and Ebenezer Pratt who settled with Abel Stevens and a group of Baptists among Loyalist settlers in Bastard Township, Kitley, Leeds, Ontario. He is not on the loyalist lists. We believe he came from Shrewsbury, Mass. to Marlboro,Vt. and may have been the son of Alpheus Pratt. There are "no records" other than those in Ontario and this Ebenezer born in 1757. If he is our Ebenezer then there should be a marriage to an Anne, births of children either in Mass. or Vt. We are trolling the records to see if we can find the key.

What a wonderful site on Marlborough! I grew up in the city of Somerville and spent my summers in the "country" in Marlborough on FORT MEADOW LAKE. My great uncle built the "cottage" in the early 1940's, where my dad spent many days at the lake. My parents re-built the cottage 4 years ago and now live there full time. I am making a scrapbook for my dad for x-mas about the history of Fort Meadow, and the info you have as well as the pics are great! If anyone has any other postcards or pics of the lake feel free to e-mail me. Thanks again for all your work!

My uncle from Westport, MA has an old bottle with stopper that says "I. Sasserville, 532 Lincoln St., Marlboro, Mass." I have a similar one but it reads "I. Sasseville & Co., 290 Lincoln St., Marlboro, Mass." Note the two spellings of "Sasseville". From one of the Marlborough directory listings it seems "Sasseville" without the "r" was prevelant in town (that's the way our family spells it too). Any clue on the bottles and the business that I. Sasseville had on Lincolm St.? I could e-mail you photos of the bottles if that helped. Thank you.

Pat,

My great great grandfather was William Brewin who lived in the Old Arcade on South Street. A number of families lived there. I put something on this site once from a different reference book - published in 1895 and about the History of the Archdiocese of Boston which my father's father had in his house on Rice Street in Marlborough:

"The Catholic Church of New England" I believe that the James Sullivan is the editor and it was published in Boston in l895. This book has many additional details on the founding of the Immaculate Conception Church than was provided by the Ella Bigelow version and also has some details at variance with that version.

It states that, by l848, there were six Irish Catholic families in Marlborough.

"These Irish people were, above all things, ardent Catholics, and their faith was as much a part of their individuality, and more so, as their bone or sinews. Nothing was too hard to be overcome, if it interfered with their religion and conscience. So that, although they had at that time neither priest nor church in Marlboro, they would ride or walk to Worcester, sixteen miles away, of a Saturday night, after their week’s toil was over, in order to hear Mass on Sunday and return home on Sunday evening. P. 787

According to the text, by October, 1850, the Catholics in Marlboro made an effort to obtain a visiting priest and Rev. George Hamilton of Saxonville indicated he would be coming. Catholics in Marlboro, Feltonville, Rockbottom, Maynard and Southboro were notified that a priest was coming. Mass was said at the residence of William Brewin in the old arcade on the west side of South Street, in a small room, about 15 feet long and 12 feet wide. Although Fr. Hamilton stated he would be returning before Christmas, when that time came, he was unable to get to Marlboro. A committee was sent to Worcester to find a priest and they were able to find a priest, Fr. Mulledy, SJ at Holy Cross. After that, Fr. Mignault came from Webster to minister to the flock of both Irish and French Catholics. By May, 1851, Bishop Fitzpatrick sent Fr. Edward Farrelly to Marlboro to say Mass and he came every month. Eventually, Mass was said at the Town Hall. He was an excellent French scholar."

What do you think will happen to the Old Arcade?

My Brewin relatives came from the Drumshanbo area of Leitrim - I suspect that many other Irish in the South Street neighborhood also came from Leitrim - Kelleher, Campbell, Vaugh, McGee, Mee, Lynch, Giblin and Martin to name a few. Any other Leitrim-Marlborough connections?

03-06-06 FYI! IC Church -- The Old Arcade, South St. This house is up for sale.

I was at a combined meeting of the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists and Marlboro Historical Society for a lecture about Burke's of Marlboro. The speaker talked about this house and, it caught me quite by surprise because it is my friend's house. Her sister, who recently died, and her daughter live in the house. Since her sister's death, they have put the house up for sale.

Do you know why the house was called the "Old Arcade"?
_____________________________________________
I.C. Church

From Ella Bigelow's Book

Coming from overseas as did our own American forefathers from the oppression of England, the early Irish settlers were remarkably law-abiding and patriotic race. In the war of the Revolution and in our Civil war, Irishmen held their own with heroic deeds. Quoting Mrs. O. A. Cheney, "we place the name of Theobald Mathew, the Apostle of Temperance, beside that of John Eliot, the Apostle to the Indians, and we speak of John Boyle O'Reilly in the same breath with Henry W. Longfellow."

Few houses in Marlborough have greater interest than the one pictured to the left "The Old Arcade on South St.. Here lived William, father of Bernard Brewin ; Michael Burke, father of Michael and Thomas Burke; Walter Wall, father of Patrick Wall; and Patrick Quirk, father of John Quirk. In this house the first Mass in Marlborough was said by Father Hamilton (Rev. George Hamilton) who came from Saxonville to officiate.

After this first Mass in the Arcade, Father Hamilton never came to Marlborough, but Rev. John Farley of Milford used to come every Sunday to celebrate Mass in the old house of Lawrence Carey on Mulberry street, now Lincoln. In the latter house in 1851, Father Farley celebrated a midnight Mass the night before Christmas. The Catholic population of Marlborough then numbered we are told not more than twenty-five people. Today there is an attendance in the Church of the Immaculate Conception of 4,500, and in Saint Mary's church of 4,000, making a total of 8,500 souls.

The next priest to visit Marlborough was Rev. Napoleon Mignault of Webster, there being at this time several Catholic French families. At these services the French and Irish Catholics attended together, and the priest, a very eloquent gentlemen, preached both in French and English. When Father Farley first celebrated Mass the congregation was too large for a private dwelling, and as the weather was fine, Mass was celebrated in the open air on South street, an altar having been erected under the beautiful old tree in front of the house pictured above. After this, Mass was said every month. In those early clays, the Catholic settlers felt more and more strongly as time went on that they needed a church of their own, and upon Mt. Pleasant was the first little church built.

Rev. John Welch was the first resident clergyman and Rev. John A. Conlin, the second. The latter in 1867, was succeeded by Father Maguire who died in 1870. Rev. J. Delahanty was his successor and resided here over five years. Rev. James Donegan was settled here in 1876, and was followed by Father P. A. McKenna at whose death Father T. B. Lowney, the present pastor, succeeded. When the little church was erected on Mt. Pleasant, which commands an extensive and delightful prospect, the tower first built was extremely high. This was carried off by a terrific gale and a shorter tower was substituted. Later on the church itself was destroyed by fire, and in 1866 the Church of the Immaculate Conception was erected. It -,vas intended at first to build this of granite from the quarry near Jabez Huntington's homestead, but the stone proved so hard that brick was substituted. Some years later the church was remodeled to the present fine edifice.

Surnames Researching Kerly/Kerley/Carley/Carlile
You are from what State? IL, MO, AL, GA
Comments:
Almost all of the information published in this site related to the Kerley family is incorrect. The Henry Kerley noted in the family history is not that of the senior Henry (Capt. Henry Kerley, b. 1632 in Ashmore, Dorset, England, m. 1 Elizabeth White who was killed in the massacre at Lancaster in 1676; m. 2 Elizabeth Ward Howe in 1677 Charlestown, MA; resided in Marlborough where he died in 1713. The Henry cited is Henry Jr, and leaves us with the impression that he married his step-mother, Elizabeth Ward Howe, widow of John Howe, Jr of Marlborough.
The bodies of William, Kerley/Carley,Jr, his wife Jane, and daughter Elizabeth are buried in the Robbins Cemetery of East Lexington, MA and are noted in Flint, James, ed. Robbins Cemetery Records, Orem Utah, Ancestry, Inc, 1999.
William's headstone states that he died May 13, 1719 ae 86yrs. As he is buried with his wife Jane, whose date of death is January 12, 1721 ae 70, we have to point out that this is proof beyond doubt that Jane did not die before him, that he did not remarry and that the William, Jr, who you are detailing is not William, Jr.
The William to whom you refer is probably the William who came to America in 1638 along with an Edmond who subsequently disappeared. This William is the man who married Anna (Hannah) King and who died in 1684 in Sudbury, but this is not the William, husband of Jane, who was in Lancaster, Marlborough or Lexington. The William who married Anna King is noted in court records -
"Ages from Court Records 1636 to 1700, Vol.I: Essex, Middlesex, and Suffolk Counties,Massachusetts"; Melinde Lutz Sanborn, Gen.Pub.Co., 2003
-William Kerly....age 45 in 1666....MCC folio 40
-William Kerly.....46 in 1667....MCC folio 44
By this reckoning, this William was born in or about 1621, whereas Capt. Henry and William, Jr. were born in 1632 and 1633, respectively. William, Sr is commonly estimated to having been born before 1600. Further, although the William b. 1621 did leave a Will noting Henry as his "brother", we have not been able to identify him as such, unless William, Sr had been previously married before his marriage to Ann White, or, that he was a close enough cousin to have been noted as "brother", which often occurred in those earlier times. We do not know. Nor does the New England Historical and Genealogical Society.
We also do know that the Mary who married the Richard Smith in your chronicle, was Mary Kerly, also the child of William, Sr. and Ann White Kerly, born in 1627 in Ashmore, Dorset, England.
Also, noted in William Kerley, Jr's Will- as published in Volume 2 of the History of Lexington by Hudson:
"William Carley died 13 May 1719, aged about 86, g.s.; wife Jeane ( ), died 12 Jan. 1721, aged about 70. He was taxed in Lexington May 1692, and subscribed to build the first meeting house. His will dated 22 Aug. 1716, probated 15 June 1719, named his wife Jane; son-in-law Samuel Locke; grandson William Whittaker ; daughters Mary Johnson, Sara Arms, Lydia Tidd, Elizabeth Cerly, Hannah Whittaker, and Rachel Carley; he also left a bequest of twenty shillings to the Church of Christ in Lexington.
Children:
Elizabeth, d. 7 June 1719, aged 34, g.s. b. 1684
Rachel, d. 11 Sept. 1725, b 1675
Sarah, m. 23 Oct. 1714, Richard Arms of Lexington. b. 1668
Ruth (?) m. Samuel Locke b 1677
Hannah, m. Nathaniel Whittaker , b 1670
Mary, m. John Johnson, of Lexington, b 1667
Lydia, d. 14 Aug. 1727, aged about 55 g.s., m. 21 Dec. 1694 Daniel Tidd. b 1672"
(I have taken the liberty of adding each of the daughter's years of birth.)
Someday, someone will get this all correct - hopefully!!

Ok folks here goes nothin, The year is 1966, My mother Sherri Findley works at a diner/restaurant as a waitress in Marlboro. Taxi Cab driver named "Pete" comes in most days. They sit and talk sometimes. She thinks he is funny and charming. One stormy evening Pete offers a ride home. They park and one thing leads to another. (9 months later I arrive born at Marlboro hospital in 1967)
She continues working for several months, getting bigger. She never tells him. She leaves the diner before its obvious she is with child.

I was raised in Lynn but have relocated to Fresno Ca. where I work as a homicide detective for the Sheriff's dept.

I believe in living forward but this is a mystery I would like to solve if possible. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

I am curious about the way you have worded info on his brother Martin Luther........you stated that he graduated from Williams College in 1813 and went into practice first in Marlborough and then in Northborough....do you know what kind of practice?

I've researched my family tree from Marlboro(paternal side) and Framingham (maternal) back to 17th century Italy, I am now preparing to write a family history. Having researched the social,political, and economic conditions in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th century that explain why all my grandparents left Italy to start new lives in the U.S.A., I now want to determine the the factors that made my paternal grandparents and their paesani from their small town in Italy settle in Marlborough. My research at the Marl. Pub. Lib. failed to uncover any documentation about the major wave of Italian immigration into Marlboro that occurred from the last decade of the 1800's up to about 1930.

It was in the local paper and also Ella Bigelow's book, but no mention of exactly where on Maple Street it was located. Al Brigham thinks it was where the bank is now near McDonald's close to the beginning of Framingham Rd. If you have any information on this I would really appreciate hearing from you.
This is a great web site. I can't believe the amount of information you have gathered.

Hi, I loved your site. We are trying to find out anything about the Pollen's, my maternal grandfather was James Pollen, he was born in Bristol, Ct. about 1892.
In the 1900 census it has him listed with a brother named Michael J. We know very little about him or the rest of his family, as he died in 1920 when my grandmother was pregnant with my mother. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Sincerly, Cindy R. Wagner

Hi, I've done a great deal of research on the 13th Mass. Vols. My GG Grandfather was in Co. K. I travelled to Marlboro and Westboro in 2001. I'm seeking any photos of 13th Mass vets. I give talks to the Pasadena Civil War RoundTable on the regt, including the John Brown Bell story. I enjoyed the detail in your story account. Also the photo of Lysander... Could you contact me to share info? I've collected all 35 issues of the 13th Mass Circulars, I've been in touch with authors and descendants. I can't get to Mass. to often and I'd like to build some contacts for more info. Thanks

Great historical sight with much hard work and effort by many people. This sight helped me make connections between the towns of Northboro, Southboro, Westboro, Lancaster, etc. I have Alqonguin lineage Abenaki/MicMac and was interested if there was any connections on my side of the family coming down from Canada during the early 1600/1700's. They were of the St. Francis Abenaki bands near Montreal and surrounding areas. I was also trying to make any connections to the Deerfield attacks.

I am looking for other Newton and affiliated lines which might have living descendants, as there are no Newtons in my line (descendants of Nahum Newton, md. Thankful Parker), in my generation, to carry on the name. Nahum was the younger brother of Stephen Newton, md. Sally Fay; their parents were Nahum Newton, md. Damaris Brigham. This early history involves Marlboro, Northborough, Paxton, Southborough. Stephen's brothers Nahum and Dexter both left MA for Windsor and Greene, NY respectively. I know that Damaris Brigham was born in Marlboro, MA; but I have no other information on Nahum Newton's birth other than MA. Please contact me with any Newton and allied information available.

Fab site, just love it. My Newton line also goes back to Richard, one of the first 13. Anyone got any ideas what happened to Samuel Newton & Rebecca(nee Concord?) after they got in trouble for her marrying her dead husband Isaac's nephew, Samuel? They were both from Marlborough, and their son Gershom died in the area, but I didn't find mention of either Rebecca or Samuel's deaths in the Vital Records. (maybe I just missed them?)... the plot thickens...

Can I offer a suggestion? Might it be possible to add a search engine to this great site?

To date I have discovered only one immigrant who came as late as the 1800's - but of course I have a number of "dead ends" who may well have come to this country later.

Thank You for allowing us to view all this wonderful info. I have read the "Howe Genealogies Book" several years ago, through the short term inter-library loan. I have wished I could have it on hand to keep referring back to, as we find more info on my Howe relatives. We can't make the connection because no one knows the first name of my Gr. Gr.
Grandfather Howe,nor anything about his wife. My
Gr.Grandfather was William Ruey Howe b. 1813 somewhere in VT. d. in Central Kansas about 1888; he had a brother Charles C. Howe b. 1821 somewhere in N.Y. Please, how can I find this first name without any paper trails? Family story goes, He was suppose to be a 50 yr. Sea Captain Howe around "Lake Champlain". Does anyone connect to my family?

Hi, I was walking along in Marlborough, headed downtown, when I decided to stop at an old cemetery because I was curious about how old the stones were. On my way out, I spotted the marker for "Four Praying Indians" Died 1665, Disturbed 1951, Reburied 1992. This *really* got my curiosity up, I was thinking "Disturbed how?" and "What took 40 years?". Your site has cleared that up quite nicely; thanks for posting that story.

When I saw the name on the Marlboro cemetery site, it brought it home to me that they are mostly in this area. Susan Pinke

I have been doing genealogy on my grandmother's family. Have discovered her uncle, Cornelius Flynn, became her legal guardian after her mother died in 1888. I recently visited Marlborough and located the house Cornelius Flynn, I believe, owned. It is one of the homes listed on your website under consideration for historic homes...63 W. Main Street. I have been told and according to census he was a policeman in Marlbourgh. I have e-mailed the police dept. in Marlborough to try to get any information on Cornelius Flynn that would be of interest to our family, but currently have not heard back from them. Do you have any suggestion as to how I could obtain such information? Your website is very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed browsing thru it. Thanks so much.

Another source "Howe Genealogy" by Daniel Wait Howe, publ.1929, page 3 states that the place no longer exists.

I have been, for several year been writing a novel, and Marlborough is the central location for most of the story. Part of the novel is set in 1777. And I am looking for good background data, I have a copy of a survey map made in 1794

Your Web page is just great some of the pictures of the homes are ones that my husband and I visited many years ago.

These homes look like they are still in good shape thanks to the owners at this time.

I am in hopes someone will read this and contact me if they happen to know the maiden name of Rachel 1704-1784 that was married to Jonathan Barnes b.Nov.26,1703 d. Oct.23,1783 Marlborough, MA both are buried in the Spring Hill cemetery.

I am also hunting for the burial place of Silas Barnes the son of Jonathan Barnes.b.1753 d.Jan.6,1813 Marlborough and his wife Betty Bigelow Barnes) b.1735-d.Sept.3,1801 Marlborough. she is the daughter of Thomas Bigelow and Elizabeth (Nurse) Bigelow.

Several years ago we were in the Marlborough Library and they had a painting of John Bigelow and Mary Warren supposed to be of them dancing at there wedding. It was in the basement on the wall as you went into the gen.room but when we went back after that it was gone.

Does anyone know what happened to this painting.

Please help if you can, I have hunted information about there burial for several years. Thank you for any help.

I am maternally descended from the Howe-Rice-Ward-Hardy-Bailey lines.
My children are descended also from the Brigham line and are their own cousins. Their father was descended from BOTH wives of Deacon Edmund Rice, and I am descended from his 1st wife (Tamazine). I do know there are many other intersections within these lines.
I have contacted or have been contacted by many others who are distant cousins and several who have multiple cousinships to me through these lines.
My paternal ancestry (Perreault)is French-Canadian and my paternal cousin has researched this line back to the mid- 1500's in Quebec.
I would also be interested in information on the Heath line which has recent intersections with the Bailey line. I believe the ancestor would be Bartholemew Heath, as he located in Haverhill MA and the family is in the general area. The recent generation had 5 children all born near the early 1900's in Essex County MA. The names were Edgar, Raymond, Warren, Estella, and one more son whose name I have forgotten. I do have the Bailey line from that family, given to mev by my late mother-in-law. If anyone out there could give me more info, I would appreciate same.
Thank you

WOW! I happened on this site earlier today and have had time to surf around it a little bit and I am very impressed. I was born at the Marlborough Hospital in 1947. Most of my family lived in Marlborough all of their lives. My grandparents lived in a beautiful old house at 231 Lakeside Ave. (do you have any pic of it?) My grandfather had been living there since 1910 as his family (Samuel, father; Jeannie, mother; Ruth, sister and Arlene , sister)KINDER appear with his name on the 1910 Federal Census and perhaps were living there prior to that date. My grandmother, Dorothy Alberta Fuller is also found with her family; Frederick Rashleigh, father; Mabel Florence Tourtelotte, mother; and Rowena Olivia Fuller on the 1910 Federal Census. Prior to that, they were living in the Ware/North Brookfield area. My grandfather was married once before he married my grandmother to a Lillian Lee (also residents of Marlborough, MA and daughter of Smith Lee) They had one child, Mabel Kinder prior to her death sometime in March 1920. My grandfather married my grandmother (Dorothy Fuller) around 1921/22. They had six children: Dorothy "Betty", Lorraine "Juney", Shirley, Marilynn (my mother), Arthur S Jr "Dicky" (he died as a POW in the Korean War in 1951) and Joan. I remember as a young child, my grandfather was the parade adjencent for the Memorial Day Parades. One year he met then Senator John F Kennedy and his wife Jackie and there was even a picture of it in the newspaper--I wish I had copies of this. My grandmother also belonged to the Gold Star Mothers. My grandfather worked for the United Shoe Manufacturing Company until his retirement. I would love to get all the information I can on my family----Can anyone help?
Thanks

I have been riveted to this ever since I found it. I left Marlboro in 1950 at age 15. I have been in St. Petersburg ever since and know very little about Marlboro. I did , however remember some things on maps and such.
I believe the section that Trombetti's built their last greenhouse belonged at one time to my family at on time and was sold to Charley before I came to live in the last house on Vine St. in 1938 just after the big hurricane.
And I remembered the Walker house where Anna lived, but I thought her husband's name was Robert because she always called him "Bobby Dear" Did you know she had two toilet in the bathroom? I guess they did everything together.
I started out at classmates.com and started looking to find out "who" took the bell from John Browns' tower and "why" it was brought to Marlboro.
I hope to find out more about my family as soon as I find a way. I remember my grandfather Beaudreau but have no idea who he was married to or even his first name as they were always "Meme and Pepe" They lived on Crescent St. in a two story house where I was born. If you walked up the street there was a cemetary where I have had pictures taken after 1st communion and confirmation at the Immaculate Conception Church. I lived there until I was three.

Comments:
Any info would be appreciated. I am very interested in finding an Ephram Morse who lived in Canada, supposedly, and had lived in Portland ,ME, maybe around 1880-1898. This is a big mystery in the family, as we need his wife's maiden name and the only one who knew was a granddaughter who just passed away at the age of 94, and had refused to to talk about it at all. this is really puzzling and our curiousity is high. The only name on the daughter's death certificate for the mother was Jeannette with a blank and ? mark for the last name. The grand dau. who just passed away was the supplier of the info on the death certificate of her mother, who she claimed came from Canada, but the marriage record from the old family Bible, says she was of Portland, Me. . Alice S. Morse married George H. Pratt of Bath,Me May 13,1901 in Portsmouth, N.H. we need to know who her father, said to be Ephram Morse, and his wife "Jeanette, ?", are. Census records from 1910 say they gave information as Alice S., George Pratt's wife, being from Canada. Provincial Archives have searched for me for her father and for her, and can't find a trace in any record. I found an old devotional book written in, and dated 1900 saying," To Miss Alice Hodgdon from your S.S. teacher, Carrie B. Garland , Xmas 1900" Is this a lead ? could she have changed her name for some unknown reason ?George Pratt is a son of Thomas Pratt originally of Malden,MA who's father is Jacob Pratt( I am very interested in this lineage also). So now the question is ,who is Alice Hodgdon, maybe from Bath,Me? and is she the same as Alice S. Morse? The census said that Alice's marriage to George was her first(and we know her last). They had two children, Sarah Jane born 1903 and Harriet Wright(a family name?) born in 1908. Does any one know who Ephram Morse was and who his wife "Jeanette" was? We are searching not only out of curiousity, but to find out nationality for genetic/medical needs as well. As I said , any info would be great. Thank you for this site. The Rook/Rooke family is another mystery,it stops for me at John Rook of Phippsburg,Me/Coxe's Head who married Frances Rogers in 1800. We don't know who his parents were or where he came from, I am guessing,Massachusettes. Thank you again. glocoffee@aol.com

John,
I'm here again, catching up on your updates. I visited with you in Marlborough a couple of years ago. I've been in contact with Mr. George Quintal Jr. of Lincoln, MA. He has been documenting participants of the Battle of Bunker Hill. I sent him my sources for my g-g-g grandfather, John Baker's participation in the battle. Mr. Quintal has entered him in his database as a participant. He had quite a record with the 4th Regt. of Massachusetts in other battles, including Saratoga, Monmouth, and that wonderful winter at Valley Forge.
John Baker was born in Marlborough, 3 Aug 1749. He was one of 15 children of Robert Baker and Lydia Harwood. He married Mary Hayden, 21 Aug 1783, in Sudbury.
When I visited you, I was searching for his burial place. I was unsuccessful in this attempt. However, I've found enough about him that I have written a little story. If you'd care to read it I'll be happy to e-mail to you.

I have a hand-written eulogy completed by Mary Kinsey written in December 1800 regarding the drowning of 12 persons off the shores of Marlborough - I'm assuming its Mass. Its quite a poem and the paper and writing of course is ancient. I'm am Mary Kinsey's great, great (maybe another great) granddaughter. I cannot find the Kinsey name very often and haven't seen it on your web page so maybe there is another Marlborough. would be very interested if this makes sense to anyone to have them contact me.

Our forfathers were from England, and then to Nantucket, and on to Amesbury - Salisbury, MA Searching for more into on Thomas and Eleanor - have most of it now, but want to confirm as much as I can before calling it quits. I have one book out, but I know only all of the grandparents and their wives, children, and who some of them married, and a few offspting. Now, it would be fun to know just how we got to Lincoln, Franklin, and many others. I did not think I would want to run the whole line, but then, what good is it to know just who the grandparents were and their children, if we know nothing of all of those that came after. Thanks for your help - I will probably never find this page again - getting frail and never did lnow anything about this computer game - of this I am sure, I recieve about 40 e-mails a day, and none of those are from friends - just people trying to sell. I have about had it with them. Rosanne
If this will put me on another list of fourty people trying to sell me something, just delete the whole thing. I will soon have to call the attorney general - certainly people are selling our names and e-mails. That is stealing your privacy, and I am sick of it.

John we had the great fortune of being referred to you today after meeting Little John Rowe at the mortuary. Can't wait to see what we discover from your research and monumental task of the web pages. My wife and I have traveled out to Marlborough 3 times over the last twelve years and I bet you have the info we need to make the connection with her French-Canadian forebears. Thanks in advance for the work you are doing and have done.

I'm enjoying your website. It seems I'm descended from several of the early families of Marlboro, and you've made my research easier. Thanks so much for putting this all together and making it available to us researchers.

Looking for any information on Nathan Goddard born June 26,1780 and marr. Nancy Parker in Royalston,MA in 1802. They lived in Athol and went to Bethlehem,NH in 1806.
Also, any information on the artist, Edgar Parker who was born in Framingham in 1840-1892. Any photographs or biography would be great.
thank you,
Cynthia
