Hi Barb...
 
Just hoping that you are the Barb I think you may be!
 
Lost all contact, been searching for a while so fingers crossed!

Hi Liz
 
 Of course I am the right Barb - how did you find us??  I guess I changed our email address since we were last in touch!! 
 
What is new with you and family?  We talked about your coming for a visit - is this the year???   B

I took only a few pics yesterday and this was one of them...Is it you?


From Barb

No, This is my Cousin RoseMarie Vessio and her brother Richard!  Great picture though!  They are the children of Joan (my mothers sister)  Joan died sometime ago and we never had a lot of contact with
them, but probably should try to get in touch again. 
 
    Included Anne in this since she has email!   Never met any of you but would love to. 
 
       I scan whatever I can get hold of like a madwoman - try for high resolution but it is easier to see details, especially on the old photos.  Unless you already have it - I thought you would like this photo of Alexander Taylor and Elizabeth Tindall Taylor (your grandparents!)  
 
          So glad to have reconnected.  The website you found me on is one a friend and I did for our town (history and genealogy)               Barb

Ohhh Thanks so much for that!! (I have to say it looks like dad with a hat on!)
 
I have sent it to Ed and Alex.
 
Apparently I think Harvey was doing some Taylor stuff
 
So...How far have you come in doing it?
 
What are you looking for now?
 
I have had much of my stuff 'stolen' during the many moves and housefires and car thefts (including those tiny tapes) but I do still have a lot of documents around.
 
I will get a scanner...I just decided yesterday to start saving them via photos for now.
 
Probably good for now if I just send the emails on to Alex and Ed as opposed to you having all our addies and different info back to each person...Would be nice to keep it all in one place...but I'm sure it would be OK to give it to you if you wanted it.
 
Heres a few pics of my two...Jesse is 22 (and his girlfriend Ashley) and Tamara is 23


From Barb
Thanks for the photos - but what does the caption on your photo mean????  ;-)
 
It is fine for you to be the conduit for info and photos (especially if Alex is  worried about security) - I sent to Ann because you sent her email address and since she is new to the internet I thought it might be good for her to see how easily you can connect with people and get and send things that way. 
 
If Harvey is doing any family history please give him my email address - I have tons of stuff from researching LDS microfilms as well as what is online - it would be a shame for him to spend time on what I have already found (and vice versa)  I have a subscription to Ancestry.com which has a lot of information. 
 
I had finally found Alexander's mother (since he was born in Peru I had wondered if his mother was South American but she is English) - Alexander's father Alexander was born in Scotland - I have been unable to track his ancesters.   Alexander's mother was Sarah Austin, born in Hampton, Middlesex.  She had 8 siblings and I have tracked many of them.
 
Re photos - as I said, I have a really good scanner (can even scan negatives and slides) and I enjoy making good copies of photos, to be able to share them and especially to save them!  If you would like to send me a packet of photos I would love to be able to scan them for you and can send them back quickly with both good copies and a CD with all the photos.  One of our big projects for our town has been to borrow old photo albums and scan and copy all the pictures (many from the 1800s - some on daguerrotypes or tintypes)   I am cheaper than buying a scanner and have become very proficient at getting the best out of very old photos.    So consider it.    What kind of documents do you have - anything really old????
 
With that.........here is the photo of the day (I dont have many Taylor photos, but this is especially nice)
Taken in about 1916 when Leonard was home from Australia - you may remember that my mother had said they all believed that Leonard had died in the war when he went back to Australia after this photo - but I found information that he had lived there until 1973.
 
This photo is - Left to right - Front Row - Leonard, "Mother" (Elizabeth) "Dad" (Alexander) Rose (my grandmother) and Steve (Shoosmith - my grandfather)   Back Row - Margaret, Ted and Poppy. 
 
I can see a resemblance between Ted as a teen and his father - especially around the eyes. 
 
                                                                                                  Barb
 
PS  Tell Harvey I am anxious to hear from him (he is my daughter's age) and I do need updated information (have "Valerie" as Doble) ??

Subject: Odd pics

Ohh Barb...That picture is amazing...
 
I have taken a portrait of dad from it and, just as you said...the resolution is great!
 
One story that dad often told was about the last time he saw Leonard...
 
He spoke about being 14 and, as I recall it was August.
 
He remembered being very upset about him leaving....and that was the last time he saw him
 
Thanks to you I was able to tell him (before he died) that Leonard had continued to live in Australia (Brisbane).
 
I had tried to contact the cemetary that he was buried in, but I was unable to get any personal information from them..I wanted to find out the details of (as I recall) his daughter that may have been on  the grave registration...
 
At that point I lost contact with searching and dad died shortly after...I would have loved to have found his niece(s) to have given us more information about him that dad would have loved.
 
You sent me a copy of Rose's bio..Many times I read that...absolutely fascinating. I may (and hope) still have  the copy you sent...though until I check through everything I have I won't know if it succumbed to 'loss' along with other stuff I cherished.
 
I also had the copies of Leonard's papers from the forces and the documents of him trying to locate the 'medal' that was lost in the flood.
 
I remember you telling me that your internet friend lived in Brisbane, close to the house Leonard lived in and visited it to give you a description...
 
As afar as the documents I have...
 
Many pics of dad, and of course mum from most timeframes.
 
I am a packrat...so I still have my NHS card and ration card
 
I have mum and dads marriage certificate as well as a letter from the registrar to mum and dad about my wedding in 1969..though those documents would be what mum had saved.
 
At a guess I would say I have at least 20 or so old documents etc..probably more...Dad insurance papers...his application to the forces...(1918 I think) You name it...mum saved it and I still have it! (hopefully)...lots of old letters..etc etc.Some of course is related to mum's side of the family.
 
I would love to help add info for future generations to see...as well as the current fascination it holds for me..
 
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm in doing this so we may all see the results of your hard work..
 
BTW...The pic of me was named quickly as a portrait from a photo of me stirring a pot at a barbecue we attended...TMy pics have some weird titles...but I know what they mean..
 
I will include the original pic...
 
Also a pic of my wedding which happens to be handy...The Tullett's wedding June 28th 1969 (Jerry's 21st birthday)
 
left to right...
Jerry's brother Nicky..His brother Julian, His Gran..His Dad Ern , his mum Rene...his brother Rod.. My sister's daughter Christine...Jerry...Me...My sister's other daughter Susan....Mum....Dad..Terry my best friend..Ken Doble..Anne holding Adrian...Harvey (page boy)..Edward...Joan....Alex
 
While I'm at it...here is the letter from the registrar as well.....lol
 
I will try to resist temptation to send your our dinner menu from our Butlins holiday in 1963...lol ;o)

From Barb
Hi Liz,
 
I guess I sent you all I have about Leonard then - I forgot you were going to contact the cemetery.  I still may follow up on that one day.  So if I repeat things I have already told you - let me know.  I guess I didnt send these photos though?? Or did I? 
 
Love the photo of you - "toil and trouble".......what was in that cauldron anyway???  (Our barbecues usually include a grill)   ;-)        
 
I really liked the wedding photo - nice to see lots of faces to go with names (though I imagine most have changed a bit since then) ;-)  Do you and your siblings get together very often?  
 
When I scan, the copy is usually 2-4 megabytes (unless it is a tiny photo).  Then I make smaller copies (like I did with the 1916 one) to send via email.  But usually I can print a full page print of many scanned ones and have them come out pretty nice (depending on the original of course) 
 
So what is new with you - are you still painting?                 B

Wow...Amazing to get these pics eh?

Liz,
Yes great picture, possibly the other guy may of been the one that they went out drinking with a lot.
Alexander had a bet, that they would kill themselves, he put his head in the oven, and turned the gas on? Alexander went through with it, but his mate dit not.
Am only going by what dad told me. I think he said he was drunk at the time.
Remember also, that he used to be hard on Elizabeth when he came in from drinking down the pub?
 
I think Ed has the large picture of when he rented a bus, to take his workers out on a picknick?
 
Thanks

Hi Liz,
Thanks for the old pics.
I was going through some of my old files, and found some history stuff that mum wrote about dad, also some about the Wallis family. I know you said that Barb and Tony were trying to put together a family history perhaps they may be interested in the info i have?
Who has dads birth certificate, do you have it Ed? Pobably Ed has some info also that we do not have.
 
How far have you got with the History Barb, have you just started with it.?
 
Anyway folks keep me posted.
Thanks

From Barb

Hello Alex,
 
How nice to be included in your message - it is great to finally "meet" my cousins.  I met your Dad and Mum once when they came to visit my parents (who are also Barbara and Tony) ;-) and Liz and I have talked on the phone.
 
I started on the family history in about 1993 (when Tony took early retirement and we moved to Vermont)
Spent many many hours with rented microfilm at a VT (Mormon) Family history center - going through parish records - and then on the internet.  Attached a pedigree chart giving you the bare bones of the ancestors - and a "report" of the Taylor side.  I am pretty much stuck in Scotland - Alexander's father gave his fathers name as John and occupation farmer, on his marriage certificate - dont know how I could ever recognize the correct one. 
 
I can send a similar report on Elizabeth Tindall's ancestors (she was Alexander's wife) if anyone is doing family history (Liz said that Harvey may be....)   Would also like to know how Alexander (your grandfather) came to be born in Peru - maybe his father was working on the railroad there?
 
Do not have anything on the Wallis side but would be happy to see what I can find.........
 
                                                                                  Regards,  Barbara   (from snowy Vermont)

Barb,
That's great what you have accomplished, looks like you have spent much time on research, and putting this project together.
I would like to support you with any info I have.
 
Liz, are you doing the same thing, or is your project different about dad?
 
Maybe the best thing to do, is to pass any info to all of us, depending how much we have got. Because I do not know what Anne, Edward, and you have got Liz?
Probably best, if you all respond to everyone on this e mail advising of your interest, and whether you want to be involved.
 
I don't mean to be bossy Liz, it looks like Barb has done a super job, and it would be a shame if one of us had info, and not passed it on. Liz your other project with the graining about dad was great, and I do not want to undermine that.(but also I don't want to stand on your toes for the other project you plan?)
 
 
Please advise
Thanks
Alex 
ps Barb, you have my birthdate incorrect. Alexander Thomas Taylor born Dec 28th 1940. Born in Salisbury.District of Amesbury.Wiltshire ( Residence 20 Torriano RD. Larkhill, Durrington Wiltshire)
Fathers rank/profession Builders Foreman.




Alex, from what I know of Liz, from our little contact - you couldnt easily "boss" her into anything she didnt
want to do.   ;-) 
 
Thanks for the corrections in dates and especially Liz, for the added "personal" info - they really help make a "real" picture of the people involved.    Auntie Poppy came to Rhode Island once to visit us - all I remember - a rather round woman with a lovely smile and photos of her two little dogs - she made marmalade while she visited.
 
Alexander's father (Alexander) was a baker so that is likely what he did in Peru - wonder how he happened to be there?   He and Sarah Austin married in London but their first three children were born in Tacna Peru.  I wrote to the British Embassy there but they had no birth records.  All 3 were baptised on their return to England.   Alexander (Sr) death record
 
DEATH:   St Olave, Southwark,  Rotherhithe
 23 June 1882  at  St Olave's Union Infirmary
 Alexander Taylor, 56 years, Baker of Bermondsey
 Cause: Phthivis 3 years
 Informant: Caroline Jones, Matron, St Olave Union Infirmary
 
Attached is another (almost the last) of the great OLD photos that I have  - Alexander taking his employees on an outing. Elizabeth in the far back beside Alexander.  My gran said that he would periodically be very well off - then lose it all.   Not sure how he lost it - did he gamble?                
                                                                                                                   Barb   
 
PS  I have lots of detailed info from census records - occupations etc.  but dont think you want to be "inundated" - they are only of interest when one is really "into" genealogy.  But let me know.
 
And I "misspoke" about the Workhouse master being the father of Margaret/Marguerites baby Edith.  He was the informant for the birth but didnt say he was the father (my assumption) ;-) She was a dressmaker at the workhouse.

If it comes in on site, how can we get in??
I see i have got two logins, One should be deleted. Its confusing.
Please advise

Liz,
 
I have only been through a little of your postings - you have done a wonderful job!!   Can you please send me a larger scan (higher resolution) of the old picture of the Taylor outing that I did not have??  I can see Alexander on the right but would like to look for Elizabeth.   Was it among your father's things?
 
Please also send me whatever information (dates and places) you have for your mothers family (and the Grogan's whoever they are)  I can try to see if ancestry.com has any information - though only census info to 1901 is available so far.  Some limited transcripts of the 1911 are available but very pricey so I havent gone after any of those yet.   Need dates/places to be able to research though.               Barb

Since it worked last time I am pasting the passport document (which is wonderful) into this eamail.   I also converted the word document into a pdf so let me know if you can view it that way (there is a free adobe acrobat reader which can be downloaded if you dont have it)    I am in the process of downloading Edwards attachments - (my ISP wont automatically download if attachments are too many/too large :-( so I have to do them one at a time. )  I am especially excited to see a photo of Lily - the Taylor sister who died!!   Among us all we will have quite a collection!!           Barbara
 
Hi Edward,
Did you get my last e mail? you have not responded yes or no. Have you been on vac?
Liz has created a great secure family site, with all kinds of interesting info, you would enjoy it.

 Harvey, still not heard from you either.
Will you get back to us and let us know if you are interested.

Liz,
I got a failed message back saying you did not receive, Perhaps Barb can send to you in a different format, if that is the problem? But maybe you should of received and not able to open up?

Alex,
 
I havent downloaded everything yet - my ISP wont download messages with large or many attachments but I can do them one at a time.  What wonderful documents - especially your mothers family notes!!  She had all the info on the families inclucing her mother's family!!   So...........you are Scots on Alexander's side and Irish on Sarah (Wallis) side.........  ;-)    Look forward to reading it more closely.  what an awful story of Alexander's "end"!! 
 
Alex - at the risk of seeming terribly ungrateful - could you take another photo of the painting of Lilly (image 4257) - from a little farther away so it includes the entire frame and if possible without the date stamp from the camera.  I would love to print a large copy of it - it is lovely.  I'm sure it will be clear enough even taken a little farther away.   My grandmother's (Rose Taylor) memoirs say (then there was a diptheria epidemic, two of my sisters died.  Your mothers
 
Attached a photo of my Aunt Marie (Shoosmith) and her husband Jimmy Kilcoyne (now deceased), since you included a 1973 letter from her..... 
 
Liz, let me know if you were able to view the pdf - thats the easiest way to get "word" documents to you. 
(by the way, semi-colon between names works the same as a comma - its what my email program puts in automatically)  I would guess Alex' email to you bounced because of size limitations (same as my server not downloading to my computer)  
 
           THANK YOU AGAIN, Alex.            Barb

Barb,
Yes of course i will get another picture copy to you. Am busy right now, will forward in a day or so. Am trying to fix my sump pump right now.
I sent another e mail to Liz, and only put qty 6 attachments, hopefully she will receive.
Thanks for the picture of Jimmy and Marie, sorry to hear they died?
We had some good times with them at there trailer, (they had an Airstreem) also with Sharky their friend that lived around the corner at their house. We even met them one year at 1000,000 islands holiday park with their camper they put on the back of their pickup
I remember we then went to visit Joan and Tony at their cottage ( Big cottage) with the lake, what happened to that place? I remember Tony worked for Coka Cola.
Thanks
Alex




Barb and Tony,
Sure nice to meet you, Yourself and Liz are dooing an excellent job With this family history stuff.
I have gone through some of my heritage info, and included them in the attachments. I did not choose to make smaller for an e mail attachment, because i thought you would not be able to read them. However if you want clarification, just advise.
The horse and buggy is in Derby rd. The house on the left is #33 John Murray's. #26 would be opposite the second long wall, which was Dr Tuens(not sure of spelling) Dad did tell me, he used to do jobs there to earn money, and also he lived above the garage. All it was was rafters?
Some of other info was letters that we asked mum to write down, (for just an occasion like this?)
Hopefully this wont take too long to download.
Love to all.
Alex and Joan.



Liz,
Hanve not got lot of time, trying to fix sump pump.
I will remove a few.

Hi Alex,
 
Take your time on sending the photo - but it is wonderful. 
 
Jimmy died in 1998, but Marie is still "going strong" at almost 92 (in May) - in fact she was golfing almost every day a few years ago and went on a cruise with my folks - also a few years ago.  Sharky died several years ago.  Joan died of cancer in 1984 and we never had much contact with my uncle Tony (you have a good memory) or Rosemarie and Richard for that matter.  :-(   Their big place in the Catskills was wonderful - I seem to think Richard may have gone to live there, but Im not certain.  
 
So now that we know you do travel, WHEN are you coming to Vermont - we have a pretty large house, lots of land (pretty rural area)  We would love to have you visit!  
 
And Elizabeth!!!  If you dont stop jumping on the bed - all you will get is emails from eveyone else saying how wonderful the attachments are!!!!  ;-)  Did you get Alex' email with fewer attachments?   Could you open the PDF?  If so I will send Edwards other word document with your dads seaman papers that way.      Barb 



Liz,
Here is the rest that i sent this morming, let me know if you receive.
Thanks
Alex

 
Attached Lilly's portrait - how do you take a date out???  Tell me what you are missing tomorrow and I will try to send - but it looks from the website like you got several (including your dads seaman papers)         Barb




Very early in my family history research I corresponded with a very nice person who checked the archives for Alexanders service records - attached a synopsis (I have the actual documents)    He was (as we can see from that document Alex sent - and Mary's family history report) - not the best behaved sailor but as my friend wrote
"he sounds like a fairly typical jolly jack tar"  I was surprised at how small he was - only 5 ft. !  
 
                                                                                                                  Barb
                                       



Liz has done a wonderful job retouching!  It is so exciting to have a one of a kind portrait of someone who died so young (wonder why they had her portrait done and none of the other children - was it after she died??)
And who is the second sister who died? - I have never seen/heard/found her name. 
 
Although this group is more about Ted and Mary and families - I thought you would like to see this photo of my Gran (Rose) at a similar age to Lilly - they do resemble each other.                               Barb

Hi Alex,
 
Take your time on sending the photo - but it is wonderful. 
 
Jimmy died in 1998, but Marie is still "going strong" at almost 92 (in May) - in fact she was golfing almost every day a few years ago and went on a cruise with my folks - also a few years ago.  Sharky died several years ago.  Joan died of cancer in 1984 and we never had much contact with my uncle Tony (you have a good memory) or Rosemarie and Richard for that matter.  :-(   Their big place in the Catskills was wonderful - I seem to think Richard may have gone to live there, but Im not certain.  
 
So now that we know you do travel, WHEN are you coming to Vermont - we have a pretty large house, lots of land (pretty rural area)  We would love to have you visit!  
 
And Elizabeth!!!  If you dont stop jumping on the bed - all you will get is emails from eveyone else saying how wonderful the attachments are!!!!  ;-)  Did you get Alex' email with fewer attachments?   Could you open the PDF?  If so I will send Edwards other word document with your dads seaman papers that way.      Barb



Barb,
O dear, i thought that Marie was dead, Please dont tell her.
We lost contact with her after she moved from the the small bungalow she and Jimmy had next to a golf course in Florida, i remember visiting her, that was the last we heard.
 
Thanks for the invite to Vermont, it would be great to visit with you, however i dont see that happening in the immediate future, but we would like a rain check.
If ever you want a trip to Ontario, you will alway's have a place to stay. It would be nice if you came here.
 
Again, Liz and Barb keep up the great job you are doing, you have exceeded expectations with all this info.
Its coming together so fast, it is hard to absorb
Thanks
Alex  



From Ed

Hi Liz,

 

It was great to be in touch together a couple of weeks ago and to catch up with all your news, and naughty of me for not replying straight away to your pages and pages of email. Have been busy at work and am now recovering from a hernia operation. Everything is o.k. I’m fit and dandy.

 

Thanks for all the info you passed on to me, it took a couple of days for me to get through it all. It’s fantastic; it must have taken a long time for you to do all of that. What a narration, you will have to take it further.

 

What about this genealogy project! It is so fascinating, and for Barbara and Tony to have started it off, they have done a great job already and from what I can see already deserve a commendation. I will certainly help in any way I can and have included copies of Mums passport and Dads seaman’s log. There are some photographs still to come, after I get them copied. Let me know if sending it in this WORD format is alright or not because I can put together a copy of the photograph with the writing which is on the back of the photograph on one page.

 

It’s a good idea to keep everyone informed together, so I will send copies of this to those who you have been communicating with.

 

Yes, I do want to go on this new link you have created, it sounds a very good idea. I will try when this is sent off to you.

 

Love and Best Wishes to All,

 

Edward.


What do you think about using this thread to 'chat' as opposed to emails?

It keeps everything in sequence and easy to refer back to information..

I can put links to the pics that each comment refers to

Emails are still useful but its been getting quite confusing...

Can everyone reply and let me know what you think?

Just go to the bottom of this page you are reading...type in your comment and click on Post Reply....You can also choose to open up a REPLY by clicking on the reply box and then you can add smilies and fancy text  pics etc.

Hope everyones having a good day!

Hi Liz,

Now I will have to change the family tree again!!! (to add your twin)  ;-)  Nice outfit.  

As to the email question I will go along with what everyone prefers - but I am personally more used to sending emails (and to groups)   - genealogy, family, etc).  I make  Lots of folders so easier for me to find things.  The site is wonderful, but already getting soooooooo much stuff I am not sure exactly where to look for things - old photos, information etc.    But whatever people want to do - I can always copy from the website and store in my folders.  ;-)    And we are bound to run out of stuff to add eventually, right??? - unless you want me to start sending census info, info on Alexander's mother and her siblings etc etc etc....................  Barb

I'll answer you in a sec Barb...just posting your email..

Dont see that you have this on yet (or have I missed it somewhere?) and it is such a nice picture.  Maybe you dont have it in digital format?                     Barb
 


Posted on this thread...
http://taylorfamilyinfo.aimoo.com/General-Discussion/Mum-and-Dads-Pic-1-1405755.html


Barb...by all means continue doing what is best for you...I will add your emails to here to not only keep the continuity going, but to make it easier to refer back to older info that I have already noticed, during posting, that I missed or have forgotten.

A quick scroll down this thread reminds us of every little comment and I have given everyone their own colour so its easy to glance at who wrote the post.

Regarding the complexity of the site....I tried hard to make it as easy as possible..

It may not be apparent HOW easy it is...EVERYONE has difficulty until they 'get' the concept.

Think of it as a filing cabinet...

First page (home) is the filing cabinet with names on all the drawers.

Once you open up a drawer you choose the folder that interests you.

Open up the folder and thats where you will find all the info on the subject.

eg...You want to check on info about mum and dad.

Open the home page and scroll down to 'Mum & Dad'

Click on that and then choose the 'folder (thread) that interests you.

There may be one on their pics...One on Dads accomplishments..0p-.09999999999999 one on what you do with an ELMO who decides to walk all over your keyboard!

If you have a pic of them, or want to look at pics of them...open the pic thread.(folder)

Filing Cabinet (Home Page)
Drawers (Gen Discussion...Mary and Ted....Shoosmiths etc.)

The General Discussion is the TOP DRAWER and the one that is being used for all current stuff...Ill then file it away afterwards...so no need to go to the Filing cabinet...just open up the top drawer and check all the posts ive been working on that day.


Once finished...go to 'TITLE' and click on General Discussion to return to General Discussion
I will be adding some links to make it easier just under the top pic...its HTML though so it takes me time to do it!

Don't worry if you dont get it yet...

Gen Discussion...Open choice thread...Close thread when finished...Return to Gen Discussion...open another thread...close thread...return to Gen Discussion.

Want to research the bigger pic of everythig filed away?

Go back to home page...Choose the drawer open and then choose thread...open..when finished return to home page...

you can make this thread a favourite...or create a shortcut icon on your pc...RIGHT CLICK...choose CREATE SHORTCUT...and there will be an icon on your pc to open when you want to access

You can do that with any page.

Hy Barb,
Great job, really appreciate you 1st, taking the time to gather all this info, and 2nd sharing it with us.
I was looking at the picture of Elizabeth Tindall, Ted Taylor is the splitting image.
We have got more smaller pictures we will sort eventually, and put up for all to see but not right now.
After you gave me Marie's phone # i gave her a call, she is getting on fine, and told me she is 91, and enjoy's her cruise once a year with her sister Barbara, also play's golf twice a week.
I asked her about Caroline, because we did meet her 35 years ago at Marie's. she is age 50 now.
I tried to give Marie my e mail address for Caroline to contact me, but kindof gave up, bit too confusing. Anyway Caroline will hopefully call me.
I asked Marie about the other brother that died, she did not know anything about it. She did not know about Lillian either?
Perhaps some time down the road, before we conk out. we could have one big reunion, like a barbeque or??
Not sure if anyone would be interested, or the location. Just a thought.
Thanks again Barb
Alex   



Oh, I LOVE the idea of a reunion - we could certainly do it here!! ;-)  Lots of space - we can put some up and there are a lot of inns etc nearby. 
 
So glad you called Marie - she must have loved that!!  I am copying this to my last known email for her daughter Caroline - it was from some time ago so not sure it is okay anymore.......  
 
And I hadnt noticed before - but you are right - Ted did look like his mother!           Barb

OK Liz,
Will try and use this thread for some stuff, am more comfortable with the e mail though.

Barb, can we get a photo of yourself and Tony, would be nice to put a face to my cousin.

Thanks

Alex...by all means continue using whatever you are most comfortable doing...I will be adding all the emails here anyway so they can be viewed easily and with links to the threads with info from the emals

I have added 'stuff' to posts and they are not only easier to view but I included the text for mums 'history'.

The benefit of email is transferring good quality pics...just adding comment here is good  and far easier to view back over old comments...Like I say...do what you are most comfortable with..



Well, Liz you have certainly started something - ;-)  since you said you wanted info on "all" the descendants of Alexander and Elizabeth - and so I could sort of "meet" my cousins......  I put together the attached on "my family" - from my Mum and Dad...    Liz I know you can get the pdf but does it work okay for you to put on the website?  (Can you cut and paste??)    You are certainly keeping me busy!    ;-)    Barb  













Heres the thread that all the info and pics are posted
http://taylorfamilyinfo.aimoo.com/General-Discussion/Family-of-Anthony-Parisi-and-B-1-1407538.html

Barb...I couldnt copy paste pics OR save to computer from the pdf files..so I had to take a screenshot

Suits the purpose of the thread anyway...How great to see all those pics..

I remember meeting Frank and Johnny in Derby Rd...don't remember the year.

I was wrong...I was thinking it may have been the medal that Leonard lost...but of course not...This is the medal you mean right...the one mum spoke about in her story...

William Wallis died during the war while on service in France during the Battle of the Somme 18th April 1918 (exactly the same date as Harriet 1928 and Jamie 1984!)
 
It was reported that he was killed (Alex!! camera date...lol)
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
 
one of his own guns while in the line of fire
 
He was given the Recommendation Medal and the Cross and two others (not known) also a high honour of the Freedon of France including the oriod? de Guere with picture (not known what has happened to them over the years)

Also hopefully Caroline may contact you, did you see the e mail i sent her.

"Received with no prob...THANKS
 
Need some help with your sump pump? lol"

.
Also hopefully Caroline may contact you, did you see the e mail i sent her.


I received all the emails but my pc is so bad (I had dowloaded SKYPE for another forum I am moderating and it used up all my memory which is less than half the recommended minimum..128MB) i tried for about 15 mins to post it and gave up...

I uninstalled Skype so I can post a little better right now and will probably do so in a minute...(If I can get Elmo off my lap!)

I find it amazing that Mum's father,  Harriet and Jamie (my first)  ALL died on the same date...April 18th!

Mum died on April 10th.

I have also noticed that there seems to be a lot of birthdays around the end of the year..January in particular....or maybe its just that I noticed them because thats my birth month.

Hi All,
 
  I told you we lived in the "middle of nowhere"   ;-)   This is looking down on our house from "Vulture Mt" - (small "mountain") ;-)   The White River is behind the house.   The house was new in 1996 - you can see a bit of the old barn toward the front of the property - it was built in 1847.        Barb

Hey Barb,
Nice place, especially next to the river. How about snow, do you get much? Do you ever get snowed in.
now I know what you meant when you advised in the middle of nowhere, kind of the Boonies. Looks like you have to pack a lunch to go to the store for milk? But really picturesque.
What happened to the original house?
The river dosent look too deep, does it ever crest the bank.
 
Hope fully you will hear from Caroline.
Thanks
Alex

Where we live Click to open in new window

Hi Alex,
 
I had received an email from Caroline from my original "cc" to her (before she wrote to you) and had explained what the deal was with the new Taylor contacts. 
 
Attached a view out our front door last December - the old barn and the 1847 farmhouse (which we owned until we sold it - that side of the road).  We do get a lot of snow in the winter but in Vermont they take good care of the roads and they are usually plowed first thing in the morning.  Tony has a snow blower on his John Deere so takes care of our driveway.   Our house and field is on a bank - the woods behind slopes down to the river (maybe 50 ft below) - it doesnt usually overflow its banks but wouldnt affect us if it did - though the nearby village (called Gaysville after the Gay family) was completely wiped out in a flood in 1927 (if you are interested in it and my town - a friend and I have created a history and genealogy website - more than 30 pages - at
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vtgenweb/vtwindsor/StockbridgeVT.htm  )                       Barb

Barb,
It looks just like a picture postcard with the snow.
Also looks like a very nice place to have a family picknic? (I was just thinking of your offer previously) Would be nice to get as many of the family together as possible. ( so we could all meet) Obviously this is something that would need to be planned a year or so down the road, also how many would be interested?
I kind of get a sense of some little rifts among families, hopfefully these can be overcome?? It would certainly be worth it.
Anyway Barb, I am just thinking aloud, but it would be good to get some feedback.
Logistics is something that can be worked out later depending on the interest.
 
Thanks
Alex

Hi Caroline,
I got Marie's phone # from Barb, she said she was going to try and contact you, but was not sure of your e mail address. Barb has don a fantastic job of the family tree.
Also me sister Elizabeth has done a great job with family photo's etc. She also lives ion Canada. Edward (MY brother Edward )still lives in England.
My Sister Anne also lives in Canada.
My father was Ted Taylor, your mums brother. You Know Barb?
It is great that we have finally been able to make contact. Elizabeth has a family site, she can perhaps give you details on access codes etc. Am sure you will find it interesting. Glad to hear that your mom is still going strong, and enjoying herself.
Last time my wife  Joan and I saw you, was 35 years ago with Jim and Marie. We have two sons Marc and Harvey 36 and 45.She was pregnant at the time. Marie had the Airstream Trailer.
I have been a volunteer firefighter for 25 years, just retired.
My full time job, I was working for an American company Called "Tennant" out of Mnpls. They manufacture industrial sweepers and scrubbers and floor coatings.
Any way Caroline I have to go so please stay in Touch,
Thanks
Alex and Joan.

I would love to meet all of you again, I sure mom would too.   Maybe this summer sometime?  I don't have vacation planned yet.  Or you could come here I have an extra 2 bedrooms and I'm near all the attractions.

Hi, Carolyn,
Sorry for spelling your name incorectly, i will be humble for a couple of minutes.
Liz, can you contact Carolyn, and give her info about the site.
We met you at Jim and Marie's house in Florida. Yes you were young then. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. and we are all older. (except Joan my wife, she stays at 39?)
Ok.
Thanks
Alex
 


Hi Carolyn,
 
Gran and Uncle Ted were brother and sister - (she was the oldest - he was the "baby")  Anne, Alex, Edward and Liz are his children and your (and my) mother's first cousin.  You and I are "first cousin once removed" to them since we are another generation "down" the chart.  But "cousin" is close enough!  ;-) 
 
See, I am in a good spot - halfway between you and Ontario (more or less) - of course Edward is in England, a bit farther for him to travel.                                          Barb
