The Family Tree - July 2007
I have just completed updating the entire site with research information, and additions to the Tree. In particular, I would like to thank Elizabeth Janson for allowing me to include her research to the Furneaux family. Matilda Mary Taggett and Joseph Hicks granddaughter Beatrice Pascoe married William James Furneaux. You will find a link back to Elizabeth's web site on the family pages, as well as on Page 2 of the "Thanks" section.
2007 Hard Copy of the Family Tree
On July 10th I have just completed the Word Documents (hard copy) of the Family Tree, and will gladly send the materials in a zip file to anyone who asks - as my gift. This year I decided to do something different. I have produced the book according to the lines. There are separate sections for the descendents of Josiah, William, Matilda and Henry, each complete with a generation and names index.
In February 2007, I was overjoyed to be contacted by Julia
Clarke who has provided me with the details of Matilda Taggett's marriage to John Sayers Roper. Matilda was the daughter of Josiah Thompson Taggett and Grace Moon Spiller. This was the last brick wall of that family.
Further brick walls were solved upon having contact with the family of Emma, eldest daughter of Josiah Taggett and Grace. She was registered at birth as Emma Tagget Spiller, and Emma Jaggett on the marriage registration record. I am sincerely grateful to Philip and Wendy Stevens for sharing their family history.
In January 2006 I was delighted to find that my great-aunt, Maud Mary Taggett married Joseph H. Baskerville, in Devonport, Devon, England. The marriage was registered during the December Quarter of 1913 on the England and Wales Civil Registration Index.
