I was just looking to see what information I could find on my family history. About 10 years ago I went with my father to a reunion and received pictures and information on my history. I thought I would follow it up. I have never known very much about my Nelson/Mudge background, so I thought I would look into it.

I am very interested to find this website about part of my family. I have never met any of the extended Mudge family. My grandmother left Minnesota as a young woman and never returned. However, my son now lives in St. Paul.

I would be happy to give you some corrections and updates about the history of my grandmother, Nina Mudge, and her descendants, including my father, Rollin Onstad.

Under Frederick Arthur Remick you have his second child marrying Joos. This child would, I believe be Margaret Remick married to Robert H. Joos the brother of my grandmother Anna Gertrude Joos. Margaret is still living with a Remick family member in Texas. I am contacting them to verify a lot of this data.

In October 1969, I visited Edmund T. Mudge, IV at the Selsed Place guest house. We were both in officer candidate school at Ft. Belvoir, Va. I have often wondered what became of Ted Mudge. It is good to know that he is alive and well.

Hello Mr. Mudge;

I, too, am a descendant of Roland and Lovina Edson Sackett and have traced Lovina's lineage back to John Alden and Prescilla Mullins of the Mayflower. Over the years I have collected sufficient documentation on all preceeding and subsequent generations to meet the Mayflower Societies membership requirements EXCEPT for that of Roland and Lovina.

Thanks to you I have their dates and places of birth, marriage and death, but I have been unable to find any of the original documentation necessary to support those dates and places.

Can you provide any insight as to where these documents can be found? I traveled back east last fall (I live in Arizona) and was delighted to find the graves of Zavan and Abigail Bills Sackett in Meadville. However, I was unable to locate those of Roland and Lovina. Do you happen to know where they are buried?

I see from your various postings that you were able to obtain a photocopy from the National Archives Civil War Mothers Pension file which provides evidence of the date of Roland's death. I would deeply appreciate your assistance in telling me how to go about obtaining a copy of this document for my records.

Knowing that you understand how difficult it is to break through genealogical brick walls, any information, advise and assitance that you may be willing to share will be everlastingly appreciated!

Thank you!

Kay Prindle Corwin

I have an Elizabeth Smith Mudge, 1666-1743, who married a first cousin numerous times removed, William Carpenter, 1688, in Jamaica, Long Island, New York. I have info on the Carpenter family back to the 1540s or so, but nothing at all about Elizabeth. Do your studies happen to include her?

Cleophas Duboid was Nelson Laurence's godfather.
Mose Lavallee was the brother of George Lavallee who married the widow of Alec Laurence, Nelson's uncle.
Mose Lavalle was the brother of Sophie Lavallee who married the widower Leon Laurence, Nelson's uncle.
The Lavallee, Rivers (Rivet) and Laurence families were very intertwined.
