Carl, I noticed your message on Genforum.Timothy Aldrich, Sr. and his son, Timothy Aldrich, Jr. were my gg and ggggrandfathers on my maternal line.Timothy Aldrich Jr. whose first wife was Temperance Wyatt, had a daughter Almira who married Abram Foust in Delaware County, Ohio in 1845.Their only son, Orson Foust(1858-1928) married an Alice Elizabeth Johnston in Sauk County, Wisconsin and they were my great-grandparents.Their oldest child, Iona Foust McGinnis (1880-1969) was my own maternal grandmother and her daughter Hazelle McGinnis, who is still living, was my mother. Timothy Aldrich, Jr. was still living in 1860 with his second wife, Sophia Smith Russell.I do not know of his death date.Temperance (1801-36?) is buried in Waldo, Ohio.My gggrandmother Almira Aldrich Foust (1826-1898) is buried in Cogswell, North Dakota in the Sargent Cemetery.My great grandparent Fousts are also buried there.My gggrandfather Abram Foust supposedly died in Deadwood, South Dakota about 1892.Perhaps somewhere near Sturgis, South Dakota.My mother was raised near Oakes, North Dakota and moved to Washington State during World War II where I was born and raised.I teach school here in Ellington, Missouri.My father, Paul Conder, was from Missouri. The DAR came up with the tombstone of Timothy Aldrich, Sr. (1762-1837) about 1943 and declared him to have been an American Revolution War veteran.Where is their source?My grandmother McGinnis told me that her grandmother, Almira Aldrich Foust was part French.Wouldn't that bloodline had to have come from Lucina, second wife of Timothy Aldrich, Sr?We don'tknow her maiden name but the name Durfee comes up as the first wife of Timothy, Sr. and that seems very French.I have portrait pictures of Almira Aldrich and Abram Foust.She had a sister, Lucinda who married a John Dearholt of Reedsburg, Wisconsin.I don't know where her brother Sylvester went.South Dakota?Her younger brother David who married a Warner (so did Sylvester) was the father of Anna Aldrich who wrote quite a bit of genealogy of the Aldrich family in Wisconsin and referred to Timothy Aldrich, Jr. as her grandfather. I have always tried to find out who the parents of Timothy Aldrich Sr. were.I read a message on the genealogy forum that they were Abram Aldrich and Ruth Sheldon of Smithfield, Rhode Island.Rhode Island is where Timothy Aldrich Jr. was born. I won't try to bombard you with more information right at the moment.Please email or write to me.My address is:p.o. box 773, Ellington, Mo. 63638(573) 663-2257 firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks!
