    1. [N-E-MEM] How is everyone? Any October or November memories ?
    2. Ms Betty Fredericks via
    3. Hello, It seems like we haven't had any good discussions, or offering of memories, for most of this year ! I don't have time today to think of memories of mine - need to babysit in an hour -- but I wanted to mention that we "lost" one of the long-time researchers a few weeks ago. Mrs. Priscilla "Pat" Haines passed ! She was a very nice lady who I first started e-mailing with because we both had a connection to our childhoods in Winchester and Arlington, MA. I just checked my Membership List and she is still subscribed. So, I think her daughters have not, yet, gotten around to checking that. .. I've been on the Lists and Boards for 14 yrs., and I can think of 3 or 4 of long-time researchers who have .passed. during this time. One lady had a fatal heart-attack - well before her time. One lady in Canada was a caregiver for her ill husband, and then she got ill. One was a very active researcher who also spent a lot of time "transcribing books" so they could be put on-line. A few yrs. ago she moved out west to live with her daughter. I haven't heard from her, and someone told me she might have passed, also. .. Anyways, in regard to Winchester and Arlington, MA, I've been thinking about the "HUTCHINSON Farm" in Winchester for a few days. And, I think I'm getting closer to the mystery of --- why I can't find a picture of the original farmhouse which might have stood from ~1750 until it burned down in 1883. It turns out I was looking for a house that existed at 21 Ridge St. in like 1870. That's where the front door of the replacement house was. I was reminded that the house from 1870 might have had the front door on what is now Hutchinson Road. But, it wasn't that name in 1870. It was Fruit St. (part of Oak St. coming up from Arlington). So, during October I'm going to write to Winchester Town Hall and ask about a "nice farmhouse" which had the possible address of .1. Fruit St. (Reminder that I lived in the replacement farmhouse from Age 2 to 9, and visited it until my "Grandma Kidder" passed in 1958. So, I have memories of the entire house and the entire property. And, we have a few pictures of what was going on at the intersection of Ridge St. and Hutchinson Rd. in the 1900-1940's timeframe. But, I can't find .anyone. who has the pictures from the 1850-1880 timeframe.) Enjoy your AUTUMN !! Betty (near Lowell, MA) List Administrator

    1. [N-E-MEM] FYI: "Betsey Ross" and .designer. of US Flag
    2. Ms Betty Fredericks
    3. Hello,   On this morning's news they showed a picture of Prince Harry of England standing in front of a crowd.   Some of the people were waving a .tiny.  British flag.     The thought popped into my head:    I wonder who .designed.  the US flag.    Of course, almost everyone knows who sewed it.    I just looked on-line and found this page:   http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/   Betsy Ross's daughter, Rachel Fletcher, testified in 1870, the following: "[The committee] showed her [Betsy Ross] a drawing roughly executed, of the flag as it was proposed to be made by the committee, and that she saw in it some defects in its proportions and the arrangement and shape of the stars. That she said it was square and a flag should be one third longer than its width, that the stars were scattered promiscuously over the field, and she said they should be either in lines or in some adopted form as a circle, or a star, and that the stars were six-pointed in the drawing, and she said they should be five pointed." Then it mentions this part of Betsey's life: The story of Betsy Ross's Life is one of triumph through adversity. She was disowned by the Quakers. She lost one husband to an explosion at a munitions depot that he was guarding. Her second husband died in a British prison. She survived her third husband, who was sick for many years. She had seven daughters, two of whom died in infancy. She maintained a business through it all. By the way, her pew was next to George Washington's at Christ Church. Since she didn't have any sons, the ROSS name didn't continue from her,  but there are many people with the ROSS name.   ...  A trivia question for you:   What was the name Betsey was born with? http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/flaglife.html Elizabeth Griscom — also called Betsy, their eighth child and a fourth-generation American, was born on January 1, 1752.   Betty             (near Lowell, MA)

    2. Ms Betty Fredericks
    3. Hello,   For those of you who have an interest in Lexington, MA,   they are celebrating their 300th anniversary this year.   http://www.lexingtonma.gov/   http://www.lexington300.org/ (Parade -  today)   Lexington was first settled circa 1642[ as part of Cambridge, Massachusetts. What is now Lexington was then incorporated as a parish, called Cambridge Farms, in 1691. This allowed them to have a separate church and minister, but were still under jurisdiction of the Town of Cambridge. Lexington was incorporated as a separate town in 1713. It was then that it got the name Lexington http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexington,_Massachusetts   http://lhsoc.weebly.com/ (Lexington Historical Society)   .. And, don't forget that in at least 2 states ....  tomorrow is "Patriot's Day"  where parades and other activities are going on.    Including the events in Concord, MA:   http://concordchamberofcommerce.org/   (Maine is the other state, and I can't remember the other one at the moment.)   Betty             (near Lowell, MA)   (on Lists and Boards  for 12 yrs.;  now an Admin for 10 Lists and 5 Boards)

    1. [N-E-MEM] Old Photos of Lowell in "Lowell Sun"
    2. Ms Betty Fredericks
    3. Hello,   I keep forgetting to tell researchers that "The Lowell Sun" has been publishing old photos of Lowell (or Greater Lowell) in the newspaper.    It's a series called "Remember When."     You can view them at    www.lowellsun.com/rememberwhen   And, you can submit an "historical photo" for them to consider publishing.   In this morning's paper, there is a picture of a "milk truck" and it's parked in front of a pick-up truck, probably taken in 1940.     It was submitted by a member of the KIERSTEAD family.   Betty           (near Lowell, MA)   (on Lists and Boards for 11 yrs.;  now an Admin for 10 Lists and 5 Boards)     P.S.    Just a reminder that you can find many, old "picture post cards" of places in MA or New England for sale on-line.    And, you don't have to purchase them.  Just save them to your computer, so you can look at them any time you want.

    1. [N-E-MEM] Spam on Lists
    2. Ms Betty Fredericks
    3. Hello,   How is everyone?    Has everyone remained healthy this winter?    Or, at least dealing well with whatever health problems you found out about?   I wanted to mention that for at least a month there's been a lot of .spam. coming in on the Lists.     It is usually coming in from someone who is not aware that their e-mailed address has been .targeted. or .used.      The subject line is usually the clue that you don't want to open that e-mail.   Sometimes it's a strange set of words, or sometimes it's the sender's name.     I've not heard that the URL in the text area is dangerous or scary,  but it is very recommended that you .not. click on it.   The RootsWeb office is aware of the problem, and they are trying to track down the e-mail addresses which have been attacked.     Please pass this info along.   Two holidays are this month.   St. Patrick's Day is coming up this weekend,  and for some religions, Easter Sunday is early this month,  March 31.   Does anyone want to mention a .memory?      What my parents always did when I was growing up is that we always got dressed up for Easter Sunday,  new dress, hat, shoes, purse, etc.    This would have been the 1950's/1960's mostly.    And a family photo would be taken.    So, me and my 5 younger siblings have pictures of us every Easter for many years.   That's all I'll say for today.      I've been at the computer all morning, working on 2 projects,  and I can't .sit.  anymore.   Betty                 (near Lowell, MA)   List Administrator   (on Lists and Boards for 11 yrs.;  now an Admin for 10 Lists and 5 Boards)     (I think I mentioned before that last summer I had several, unexpected health problems.   During the fall they were all, mostly, taken care of.    But, because of all the stormy weather in MA, my Osteoarthritis has given me a lot of trouble.    Mostly legs, hips, knees.    I'm very much hoping that we won't have too many storms this spring.)

    1. [N-E-MEM] Animal Stories ?? and "Brick Walls" ??
    2. Ms Betty Fredericks
    3. Hello,   How is everyone?     I hope all researchers are staying healthy or getting healthy.   This morning on the early news on TV they mentioned that at a Ski Resort a "moose" is running around scaring the people trying to ski.    The news anchor wondered what a female moose is called.    Being curious I looked it up and they are a bull and cow.    But, I also read that "moose" is a Native American word.    (In the UK the same or similar animal is an Elk.)   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moose   That made me wonder whether anyone had an animal story which involved their grandparents or ancestors !     I can't think of any at the moment.     But, going back to the 1600's and 1700's there must have been people arriving  in North America who met up with an animal or 2.   And, possibly animals they had never seen before.     And, up in Canada, when my ancestors arrived along the Maine / Nova Scotia / New Brunswick border, in late 1700's, probably met up with animals in the wilderness.    And, in the 1820's when another set of ancestors arrived in Canada and settled in the Prov. of Quebec,  but way north in the Laurentian Mountains,  they most undoubtedly met up with animals.   And, that reminds me of a documentary I watched part of last week which mentioned how "beavers"  almost became extinct.   The North American beaver population was once more than 60 million, but as of 1988 was 6–12 million. This population decline is due to extensive hunting for fur, for glands used as medicine and perfume, and because their harvesting of trees and flooding of waterways may interfere with other land uses  ...   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaver   ...  Also,  I mentioned on two of my other Lists whether anyone wanted to discuss or mention -- which "brick wall" you will spend a lot of time on during 2013.   (On my family-tree, I divided them into categories:    "brick walls,"  "concrete-block walls,"  and "concrete-block walls put together with reinforced cement.")   Betty             (near Lowell, MA)   List Administrator   (on Lists and Boards for 11 yrs.;  now an Admin for 10 Lists and 5 Boards)     (I'm fine.   I had 3, unexpected health problems last summer which meant trips to doctors' offices and 2 Day Surgeries, and tests, etc.   But, starting 2013 they are all fixed or fixable.    Within a month I need to decide which "preventative treatment" I will have.  ...  The annoying health problem is that my Osteoarthritis has gotten worse, esp. my knee and hip,  and I can no longer .sit.  at my computer as long as I used to.     I'm starting a piggy-bank so I can save up for an IPad so I can e-mail from the couch.)

    1. [N-E-MEM] Aug. 1920 - when all States ALLOWED Women to VOTE
    2. Ms Betty Fredericks
    3. Hi everyone,   When my parents were being born,  their mothers were just then being allowed to vote !      And, when their mothers were marrying in 1916 and 1911,  they were not allowed to vote.      But, they were of the age to have a husband go off to fight in World War I.     And, a few years later, their children would have been old enough to go off and fight in World War II.   http://womenshistory.about.com/od/suffrage1900/a/august_26_wed.htm   Votes for women were first seriously proposed in the United States in July, 1848, at the Seneca Falls Woman's Rights Convention organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. One woman who attended that convention was Charlotte Woodward. She was nineteen at the time. In 1920, when women finally won the vote throughout the nation, Charlotte Woodward was the only participant in the 1848 Convention who was still alive to be able to vote, though she was apparently too ill to actually cast a ballot.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women's_suffrage   That web page reminded me that that was not the same as women being allowed to "run for office."     Oh, this says we got both .rights. in 1920.   Margaret Chase SMITH was the first woman from to go to Congress from Maine.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Chase_Smith   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_the_United_States_House_of_Representatives   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_the_United_States_Senate     Betty           (near Lowell, MA)   List Administrator   FYI:   Well, the last few months have been a little stressful.     My Osteoarthritis started being worse.    But, I had two "female problems" to deal with.     The doctors were concerned about my Mammogram, and "one" doctor wanted me to follow up.    Two "day surgeries" later and I find out I am now "all clear."    But, being diagnosed with "pre-cancer" means they'll be checking me much more often.     And, the other female-problem turned out to be - just a minor problem - but also something to be checked out more often.    ...    Since I also might now have Psoriatic Arthritis,  I need to learn how to deal with that.     I just wish I could .sit.  at my computer for more than an hour at a time !     But, the doctors all say you're supposed to limit your "sitting" anyways.   October was "Breast Cancer Awareness" month,  and I hope all women get their Mammograms and then ask for a 2nd opinion -  family history or not.    I had .no. family history of it.

    1. [N-E-MEM] When "Ether" was first used !
    2. Ms Betty Fredericks
    3. Hello,   In this morning's  MassMoments  e-mail there is a story about when "ether" was first used in an operating room.    It was at MGH in Oct. 1846.          http://www.massmoments.org/moment.cfm?mid=299   I don't even want to think about all the .surgeries. in the 1600's to 1800's where "ether" was not available.   And, I don't even want to think about going to a dentist where Novocaine is not used.    When my parents could finally afford to send their children to a dentist, probably after 1950, I'm pretty sure even the first (old) dentist used Novocaine.     But, in the 1950's in Cambridge, my husband, as a teen, he had dental work - with no Novocaine or Ether, or anything.     :o(   Betty                 (near Lowell, MA)

    1. [N-E-MEM] Losing a genealogist, etc. (or, defending your spouse)
    2. Ms Betty Fredericks
    3. Hello,   While reading through my many Digests this morning, I read of 2, unfortunate stories.     An important member of the   KERR / CARR genealogy (DNA) project just passed.    (Another researcher found out accidentally.)   And, a List Admin for a List in Ireland just passed.     That reminds me that  "genealogists don't last forever."     I remember 5-7 yrs. ago when I accidentally found out that a popular List Admin in MA had passed unexpectedly.    "Bunny" had run several Lists and helped many people for years, but a "fatal heart attack" stopped all that.   There are way too many ways for a person of any age -  to end up in a hospital's ER.        And, if we think about our ancestors,  when did  "Emergency Rooms" first get invented?       On a lighter note,  there was a local, news story on TV this morning.     A senior-couple was sitting in their living room in Lowell last night - watching TV - when a young man, high on drugs, broke into their home.    He asked to use their bathroom, and then started tearing it apart.    But, when he went back into the living room, and started hitting the husband,  the wife got mad !!     She jumped on his back, put him in a head lock, and twisted his arm.    That gave the husband enough time to call 911.     When interviewed, the wife said,  "No one ... hits my husband !" :o)   Now, we are a senior couple,  but my husband did "martial arts" from Age 20 to 50.    Even though he hasn't done it for 20 yrs., his training - remains with him.    So, he could probably defend himself.    And defend me.    I asked him just now if he thought I could do what that wife did.   He said, Sure - you have strong arms.     But, I said,  I don't know how to put someone in a head lock !    :o)   Betty              (near Lowell, MA)   List Administrator     (just adopted 2 more Boards,  one for  MOURA,  and one for  Washington Co., Maine)

    3. Hi Betty, Two cups of sugar is a lot, but many of the recipes seem to call for that much. You could use Stevia which is a natural plant sugar replacement. Here is a recipe for zucchini bread with no sugar. I never made it, I just found it on line. http://myyearwithout.blogspot.com/2010/10/sugar-free-quick-easy-zucchini-bre ad.html It's a blog from someone who doesn't use sugar, so there are probably some other recipes there. The other day, we had roasted vegetables on the grill. Now that the tomatoes are here, we do caprese salad - sliced tomatoes, sliced mozzarella and basil. We also do another version of that with cherry tomatoes cut in half, mixed with mozzarella cut in cubes, or the fresh mozzarella that you can get in tiny balls, basil, and italian salad dressing - we use balsamic. We also make green bean salad - beans, tomatoes, onion, olives, basil or whatever seasoning you like, croutons, and italian dressing. My aunt makes a corn salad with fresh corn on the cob, cooked and taken off the cob. Mix with thinly sliced red onion, red pepper diced about the same size as the corn, tomatoes diced very small, dressed with red wine vinegar & olive oil. I only made it once or twice myself, because no one in this house likes it, but I think it's great. I finally have a garden this year, but the tomatoes are still a long way off. I should have green beans this week, and cucumbers too. We have been getting a lot of basil.

    3. Hi Listers, Well, Cranberries have to be a staple of my life from now on, as a chemo patient/survivor, you have kiddey and bladder issues often, doc said Cranberries daily rest of my life...3 oz daily. lots of water. The Ocean Spray guys are a hoot, related or not... that i knew of. We here on the West Coast have to travel to Oregon or Wash, states to see the harvests in November. Veggies on the table, we from our garden daily, until frost took the fruits away. I personaly love the squash family, such a variety of flavors from one family, My parents always had the traditional "Turkey dinner, with potatoes, candied Yams w/mallows and honey(baked)peas and often aspargus/peas and green beans w/bacon. Will be spending today indoors, to be 94-98 here today, so must be outside to water the veggies this morning, Cukes are a bumper crop this year, fruit here may be at a premium this year, it was a hit and miss type of pollonization, to many extra cold days in the spring..don't think my Peaches are going to ripen this year, hardly have any size to them. Have a great day friends. ~hum.Linda~

And, of course, there is the well-known "Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie," etc. Actually, when I turned 60, I started having a problem digesting veggies, and I basically had to stop eating them. It's been getting better, sort of. I've always called it a "disagreeable digestive system." Because of a Message Board for the National Psoriasis Foundation, I just found out last week it has an official name: "Leaky Gut Syndrome." Several people suggested I go on the "Paleo Diet" for 3 mos. and that will make me much better. I requested 2 books from the library about it. I haven't gotten the book describing it, yet, but I did get the book, "Paleo Comfort Foods." Since you're supposed to eliminate dairy and grains for 3 mos., I thought there wasn't much else to eat. But, over the weekend I looked at this very nice, colorful cookbook, and I see many pictures of very nice foods. The first one I noticed was: Squash Casserole. They call it yellow squash; I call it summer squash. The ingredients include: onion, coconut milk, almond meal, paprika, and chopped pecans. With my digestive system, anything with skin and seeds are the worst culprits. For all of my life - up to Age 60 - I've always loved 90% of veggies. And I really miss being able to make a cucumber sandwich, or eating a Greek Salad, or eating a dish of summer squash with butter. :o( This is almost a Gourmet cookbook, as the majority of the recipes include coconut milk, coconut flour, or almond flour or avocado oil, etc. I guess we would have to have lots of money with us at supermarkets for these recipes. By the way, I just asked on Facebook if there are ways to make Zucchini Bread, Banana Bread, or Carrot Cake, without adding 2 cups of sugar. Someone wrote back to say to use Brown Sugar, instead (1/3 the amount). And, I just noticed a recipe for a bread in this book where .honey. is used. Am I making anyone - hungry ?
