Amaneunsis Monday: Seymour High School Room1 1891-92

Posted by Jim Sanders on Monday, 10 June, 2013

The following is a transcription from the Seymour School records for the academic school year 1891-92. Clearly the ages of these individuals are most likely not in a high school level class. Perhaps there was an extra room at the high school which was needed for younger students.

Genealogy by the States – Week 23 – Maine

Posted by Jim Sanders on Sunday, 9 June, 2013

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Maine. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Maine. If you don’t have any connections to Maine, find a Maine resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 6/9/2013 – 6/15/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.

———————————-

Given my early colonial New England roots, I was surprised to find out that I did not have a lot of connections to the state of Maine. My closest connection is a first cousin, twice removed. As it appears to be a common theme lately, he is also a descendant of John Charles Sanders and Mary Clark Tripp.

George Joseph Sanders was born on 03-Nov-1906 in New Britain, Hartford County, Connecticut. He married Ethel H. Pichard on 22-May-1943 in Waterbury, New Haven County, Connecticut. He died in February 1985. His last known address was in Waldoboro, Lincoln County, Maine

A have a few notes my father had recorded about him including;

  • He was a retired toolmaker at Lewis Engineering Co. in Naugatuck, CT
  • He was also a licensed amateur radio operator since 1923. His call sign K1GZI
  • According to his mothers obituary, George lived in Cheshire, Ct in 1956

Genealogy by the States – Week 22 – Alabama

Posted by Jim Sanders on Sunday, 2 June, 2013

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Alabama. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Alabama. If you don’t have any connections to Alabama, find a Alabama resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 6/2/2013 – 6/8/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.

———————————-

William Clifford Sanders was my second cousin one time removed. We both descend from John Charles Sanders and Mary Clark Tripp. John Charles Sanders and Mary Clark Tripp have quite a number of descendants. This particular line of Sanders, we kind of lost contact with.

He was born on 23-Aug-1937 in Waterbury, New Haven County, Connecticut. married to Rheba Kay Nobles in Alabama. He was married to Rheba on 28-Sep-1963 in Opelika, Lee County, Alabama (my family connection to Alabama). He died on 03-Apr-2001 in Oshkosh, Winnebago county, Wisconsin.

William Clifford Sanders is a former professor at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh. According to the faculty and staff directories he last appears in 1999-2000. According to some notes I have, he was a professor of German. I’m not sure where he picked up his German as our family, at least the Sanders line, doesn’t have a strong connection to Germany.
