    1. [BAXTER]Leave a Farewell Message
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Leave a Farewell Message*_/ This post was by Judith to MODAVIES: suggestion: People may want to post a "farewell" message on the mailing list before it goes to archive, and in this message include an email you plan to keep for the foreseeable future. A separate email could be set up expressly for this purpose if it is more convenient/secure. (You'll want web-based, not provider-based.) That way, if someone peruses the archive & finds a possible connection, they would have a way to get in touch with you privately. I have been on a couple of lists that went archival at some point, and I really wish I had done that, as our old email was provider-based and - once that provider went defunct, people looking through the defunct mailing list had no way to contact me (nor I them) It's easier to track people down these days, but I'd still suggest this. I think this to be an excellent idea, wish I thought it. I would like to expand to suggest that a post to include Your name, best address to reach you (one that might be dedicated to your genealogy research), a list surname(s) of interest, a list to places of interest (country, region, state, county), subject of interest, snail mail address (at your own risk), telephone number (again at your own risk), web address if you have a website, where you “moved.” Please keep in mind these to be suggestions and you should only provide what you would be comfortable for “ibots” to find. Might not want to wait to last minute. This would give system to process information and have it posted. With this in mind, please do not be concerned when you see my post to the nearly 300 (took inventory; final count was 298 – just sharing) mailing lists I admin. I will be leaving my time capsule to the list(s) in the coming days. But I will be here til Roots Web turn off the lights and lock the door. Let me take a few lines to acknowledge all the “thank-you” I have received. I started with a few surnames and expanded to counties more recently. But you are all “welcomed.” I try serve with the volunteer spirit and a happy heart. Please overlook my frustration that may boil to the top in the coming days. Susan

    1. [BAXTER]Ramblings from the Backseat
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Ramblings from the Backseat*_/ Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. I have already announced that as of March 2^nd , when Roots Web ceases to function as a mailing list that I will be hanging up my administrator's hat. These are my observations and suggestions going forward. First and foremost, someone needs to step-up to be new administrator, chairman, leader, whatever title you like. Next a decision should be made whether to remain a mailing list or a bulletin board. Of course, what is to say both could be established. I personally have not read, but Dick Eastman has endorsed Group.io as a venue for mailing list. From what little time I have had, I would lean toward Group.io to maintain mailing list format. I have no experience with bulletin boards therefore I have no input. I am hearing Facebook, but I have issues with privacy and whether someone would make the site secure enough. I am sure there are other venues for bulletin board format. Can not stop someone setting up FB account, just do not bother to invite me. Also, Ancestry has an established bulletin board area, it is functioning. Due to the activity on most state lists, my next suggestion would be that county mailing lists consolidate to form one state list. When activity is established divide into regions. Too much activity then establish a county list (start at the top and drill down). Under the blanket of a state list posting could use subject line to keep the identity of the county ie; SUBJECT: [AL-SUMTER] Looking for … Surname lists are a horse of a different color. Suggestion here would be to make use of subject line. Kinda like reading a newspaper, the subject line is like a headline of a newspaper. Personally I pay attention to an informative subject line. A worry in the back of my mind is with the “mass exodus” from Roots Web to other venue on whether that venue can handle the new activity or whether “we” will cause that venue to crash and burn. Here's hoping that is a needless concern. Once the list is established … there needs to be centralized place where a directory or a place of registration that searching community would go to find the list. Since I am US based, USGenWeb comes to mind. This maybe more difficult step. USGenWeb sites are individually maintained. Hearing rumblings that this may be solved in the near future. Last concern (for the moment) would be “being nice and playing well with others.” Personally, have not experienced this problem. Frustration, maybe. Especially when Roots Web fell apart and returned “fixed” with continuing problems. For example, I still have to push through a post from someone using AOL. AOL users … this is why your post takes a little longer to be seen. Sorry, I do my best with the tools I have to work with. Patience is probably going to be the keyword in days to come. Patience with the leaders that will step forward. They are going to be putting a lot on their plates and will need support in establishing a new venue and getting it working, establishing their rules, etc. Congratulation to those lists that have found a “new home.” From what I see you are in good hands! Will try to make this last posting to those newly adopted lists. (Posting to all lists today.) At this point in time, Family Trees, Message Boards, Web Sites, & Wiki at Roots Web are not effected to my knowledge. Of course, Message Boards are already part of Ancestry. So open conversation. Work on finding a volunteer to lead the list forward. I'm gonna stop rambling for the moment. I'm here till they turn off the lights and lock the door. Susan

    1. [BAXTER]Genealogy of Roots Web
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Genealogy of Roots Web*_/ Since most of us are genealogists or family historians, I write this to answer the primary questions I am receiving in “genealogy speak.” Mailing lists were scattered about the Internet prior to the conception of Roots Web (ie: AOL, Prodigy, Compuserve, and others) BIRTH: Sometime in 1996, Karen & Brian Leverich, conceived what it is now known as Roots Web. Roots Web grew to host uncountable mailing list of many subjects, surnames, places, etc. These mailing lists were free to its users/subscribers. MARRIAGE: June 2000. Roots Web was married (purchased by) Ancestry, Inc. with prenuptial agreement that mailing list services would remain free. I believe to be sometime in 2015, our beloved Roots Web began to suffer health issues. My speculation is outgrew its existence and its host was unable to keep up without a major and costly overhaul. After a year plus, Roots Web reopened its doors, but a lot of her faithful subscribers had lost interest or found other vehicles to convey their passages of information. During this time, other updates on the Internet have occurred. These changes have caused some subscribers unable to participate. Not qualified to expand on this other than to say that some folks have lost connection with Roots Web, DEATH: 2 March 2020. Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. BURIAL: Archives will be available to peruse. No further information as to where, how long, or whether a price tag will be added. Hope this helps. Susan Penn Groover -- --- Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.

    1. [BAXTER]Update
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. Hi everyone! This has been heavy on my heart since Ancestry / Roots Web announcement. I have been admin / moderator for various mailing lists for 25+ years (some lists that predate Roots Web). The options for change do not fit my personal criteria. This is, also, not happening at a time I am able to give personal time for this change. Plus, I think Ancestry is not given an adequate “heads up” for this change. (I personally admin 200+ lists) So I have made the decision to become a subscriber as opposed to an administrator. I will remain admin to the mailing lists I currently admin till Roots Web makes the changes they propose on March 2^nd . I am leaving the decision for change to the list members. I am still gathering options. I will post suggestions in the next few days. The major option I am hearing is Facebook. I suppose this could work. But Facebook, in my humble opinion, would be turning a mailing list into a message board. And various mailing list members have stated they would not Facebook. Personally, I am in this bucket. I have personal issues with Facebook. Open discussion on the list. Voice your opinion. Enough for now. Will post more on other options in the future.

    1. [BAXTER]Roots Web no longer supporting mailing list in March 2020
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. For those that have not heard the news ... Rootsweb will no longer be supporting mailing lists in March 2020.  It will remain read only, so archives will be accessible.  In my mind, I question how long. Please keep in mind that each mailing list archives is the property of RootsWeb and will not be able to moved, removed, etc. Only the mailing list members list will be accessible by the admin for that list. I am looking for alternatives which I have started listing below. Alternatives: Ancestry -- as I understand, this alternative is platform based. Meaning one would have to long into to post a message as opposed to simply sending an e-mail. Groups.io -- would keep mailing, but to get full function a fee would be required. Google Groups -- I have not researched this option.  Personally, I have issues with Google and will not pursue this option as admin. I suppose the major decision is whether to remain an e-mail based Group or platform based? My personal prerequisite is that it must be FREE. Discussion in open...

    1. [BAXTER]Lawson Eaves (NC), 1832-1920. Shipwrecked?
    2. Glenna Kinard
    3. Doing some digging this morning in Newspapers.com to see what I can find there on my great-grandfather, Lawson Eaves (1832-1920). (He was the son of Spencer Jonathan Eaves/Jennie Lee Baxter).) Lawson, who was a farmer and a teacher, was also a poet and I found several of his poems published in the Charlotte (NC) Observer ca 1903. What completely threw me was one particular poem. It was titled “Tortugas.” The poem was prefaced by this statement: “Written after the author had been rescued from a shipwreck off one of the Tortugas Islands.” You can imagine my surprise. Heck, my shock. What was a farmer from Rutherford County, NC, doing on a ship??? (Lawson Eaves served in the Confederate Army but I have seen no evidence that his service relates to being in the Tortugas.) I badly want to know more. Where can I go to find more information about Lawson Eaves and his time on board a ship?

    1. [BAXTER]LECKRONE - BAXTER Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as that of T. W. LECKRONE of Delaware, OH. The photograph was taken at the T. A. Beach Studio in Delaware, OH and likely related to Ohio Wesleyan as others belonging to Professors at that school were recovered as well from this same source. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1860's or 1870's with the young man likely in his 20's at the time. Thanks to researchers I have the following information regarding this man and his family: Thomas West LECKRONE was b. 1851 in Ohio to parents John & Eliza LECKRONE. The family was living in Jefferson OH by 1860 with four children and remained there in 1870 as well. Thomas married Florence in Walnut, OH and by 1900 he was a doctor. The couple had a daughter Helen LECKRONE b. 1896. Thomas died 12 Feb 1908. His daughter Helen married Dr. Leland BAXTER on 3 Nov 1913. By 1930 Helen and her husband were living in Newark, OH with a son, E. Leland BAXTER (b. 1920 in OH). Helen died 30 Mar 1961 in Newark, OH and is buried in the Cedar Hills Cemetery in Newark along with her parents. Helen's husband and her son both died in April 1936 within weeks of each other and they too are buried in the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Newark. I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [BAXTER] Judge John Baxter (1819-1886), who are his children?
    2. Glenna Kinard via
    3. Hope someone can give me the straight scoop on Judge John Baxter's wives and children. He was born in NC in 1819, son of Wlm. Baxter and Catherine Lee of Rutherford County, NC. He died in 1886 in Tennessee. Wife #1. Mahalah H. Hines Baxter (where is she buried?). Married in 1836. I have one child for them, Mary Margaret. b. 1837. She married Michael Moore Miller. She died in in the 1860's (when?). Her daughter was Orra Anne Miller (b. 1859). Or was the daughter's name Leonora Anne? (This is important later on.) Wife #2 for Judge Baxter. Orra Ann Alexander. married 1842. She died Dec. 1859 in Tennessee. Their children: Nancy Catherine (b. 1846), Delia Elizabeth (b. 1849), William Mitchell (b. 1850), Lewis Thompson (b. 1852) and John Alfred/Alexander, b. 1857. Wife #3: Catherine R. (Kitty) Alexander (sister of Orra Anne). Married between 1859-1860. Did they have children?? She was previously married to George Washington Baxter, brother of Judge Baxter. They had two children, Dr. George Alfred (b. 1851) and Gov. George White Baxter (b. 1855). Wife #4: Kate White (1834-1885). Married in 1867. They had one daughter, Mary Hume (b. 1869). The 1860 census in Ancestry is a total mess (names wrong, etc.; they have the family as Barter instead of Baxter), plus it does not give the relationships of the members of this household. I have placed in parenthesis my guess as to who's-who in that household. Please share any corrections with me. 1860 Census, 1(?) District, Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee Page 99, dwelling/family 777/705, July 18, 1860 John Barter (Baxter) Age: 41 Birth Year: abt 1819 Gender: Male Birth Place: North Carolina Home in 1860: District 1, Knox, Tennessee Post Office: Knoxville Family Number: 605 John Baxter, age 41, lawyer, $41,000 value real estate, $50,000 value personal property, born in North Carolina Nancy C.
