Amaneunsis Monday: Seymour High School Room1 1891-92

Monday, June 10, 2013 Posted by Jim Sanders

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

Sunday, June 9, 2013 Posted by Jim Sanders

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

Sunday, June 2, 2013 Posted by Jim Sanders

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.
