  • I found the index entry for the estate settlement of Cyrel Green, died 1808 in Bethel, Vermont but I can't find the original record. :( #
  • I must say @stampsgal is AWESOME! She found Cyrel's estate docs! #
  • Parley is not listed as a minor on Cyrel's estate. That means either Cyrel wasn't his father after all, or his 1800 birth date is wrong… #
  • …and then @stampsgal in all her brilliance expressed the theory that the "Polly" in the guardianship probate is actually "Parley!" #
  • The angel Moroni is shining in the morning sun @ Temple Square #
  • Well, Parley Green and his siblings are nowhere in births, marriages, deaths or cemetery records for Barnard or Bethel, Vermont. #sigh #
  • I found Abner and his parents Parley and Maria in the 1855 NY State Census, Monroe Co, Wheatland, District 2. #
  • I still can't make the link between Parley and his true father. :( #
  • Schaar line jackpot! Friedrich's birth record (1851), his parents Johann & Anna's marriage (1837) and Anna Borusch's birth record (1815). #
  • My final evening at FHL was filled with many discoveries and a ton of leads to follow as I move forward with my research. #incredibletrip #
