Yesterday I gave some misinformation in an eMail.If you received it please disregard it and replace it with this one:
Dear Sharron: My great great grandparents in Canada were Aaron Fitchett and Matilda Lavantia (Fox her maiden name).I show him as born in 1819 and died in 1900. THEIR CHILDREN: Twins:Elizabeth smothered at 3 months & Mary "burnt" age 25 Aaron died of typhoid at age 20 Elizza Jane died of typhoid at age 22 (These two died withina week of each other) Martha died at age 30 probably married to Robt. Wilson Hester Ann died at age 20 Nelson died at age 88 Stephen died in California at age 75 John died at age 73 Matilda Lavantiadied at age 73 .This is my great grandmother and a curious note is that her married name was Fitchett - the same as her maiden name.So she must have married a cousin or just happened to marry another Fitchett.
This union produced these children: Katherine Minerva William Albert Rachel (who married Thomas Rollins and is my GRANDMOTHER) George Franklin Edmond
Here is my lineage: I am Jean Winnifred Mayhew Jones Nettie Amelia Rollins Mayhew - my mother Rachel Fitchett Rollins - my grandmother Matilda Lavantia Fitchett Fitchett - my great grandmother Matilda Lavantia Fox Fitchett - my great great grandmother George Washington Fox- my great great great grandfather
So, Sharron Nielsen,we have the same greatgreat grandparents: Aaron Fitchett and Matilda Lavantia (Fox) Fitchett.And your great grandfather, Edmund Fitchett was a brother to my greatgrandmother Matilda Lavantia Fitchett (not to be confused with her mother of the same name).
Now thanks to your posting, Sharron, I can claim a great great great grandfather (James Fitchett 1766 - 1859, and a great, great great great grandfather (Joseph Fitchett 1736 - ?)
Small world!We are all connected!Jean Winnifred Jones
My information is from a snippet of paper in the handwritting of my deceased sister Louva.She must have queried my grandmother .
