    1. [NJUNION] MYGATT Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Royal Elting MYGATT which was taken at the F. C. Langhorne Studio in Plainfield, NJ. Royal was one year old at the time the photograph was taken. His birthdate was identified as 10 Dec 1907. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Royal and his family: Royal Elting MYGATT was b. 10 Dec 1907 in Plainfield, NJ to parents Frederic Eli MYGATT (1871-1942) and Elizabeth "Bessie" DANIELS (1872-1947). Royal had three siblings including, Frederic Eli Jr.; Henry Daniels; and Philip or Phillip Faxon MYGATT, all born between 1897 and 1911. Royal married Katrina Sanford AUCHINCLOSS (1907-1991) and together they had a son, Samuel G. MYGATT (1943-2010) and three other children. Royal entered into the New York Guard in 1934 in New York City, NY. Royal died 31 Mar 1948 in Stamford, CT and is buried in the Center Cemetery in New Milford, CT. Census records provide the following information: 1920 census of Plainfield, NJ: Frederick MYGATT, age 49, born CT, parents born CT, a Lawyer Elizabeth MYGATT, wife, age 47, born CT, parents born CT Henry MYGATT, son, age 17, born NY Royal MYGATT, son, age 12, born NJ Philip MYGATT, son, age 7, born NJ + 1 Servant 1930 census of Washington, CT: Frederick E. MYGOTT, age 59, married at age 36, born CT, parents born CT, a Lawyer Elizabeth D. MYGOTT, wife, age 57, married at age 34, born CT, born MA/NY Royal E. MYGOTT, son, age 22, born NY, parents born CT/NY Philip F. MYGOTT, son, age 18, born NJ, parents born CT/NY I'm hoping to locate someone from Royal's family so that this wonderful old 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. [NJUNION] Relationship and parents of Samuel S., Ralph R,and William Conover, Middlesex Co., NJ
    2. Rodger
    3. I would appreciate help in documenting the relationship of Samuel S. and Ralph R. Conover to William Conover who was born in September. 1816 in Cranbury, Middlesex Co., NJ. The Civil War pension of Samuel and Sarah Frances Weeks Conover has some proof of the brotherhood of Samuel S. to Ralph R. Conover of Middlesex Co., NJ. Ralph’s wife was Ellen/ Elnore Snedeker , a daughter of John Snedeker and Margaret Smock.. Samuel and Ralph were born in either 1811 or 1812. Samuel was a blacksmith/ spring maker, Ralph R. a brick/ stone mason and William a plasterer/ fresco worker. Ralph was living in Newark, NJ between 1834 and 1840 though he had been in Terre Haute, Vigo Co., Indiana for business by 1838. William and his wife Anna Catherine Warth moved to Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., Ohio by 1838. They moved to Ohio with Catherine’s sister Verena Warth Wendt and her husband Johan Ernst Frederick Wendt. By 1857 all three Conover families were in Terre Haute, Indiana . After 1878, Samuel and Frances returned to Rahway, New Jersey and are buried in the Rahway Cemetery. William, Catherine, Ralph R. and Elnore Conover are buried together in Terre Haute, Indiana.There is no death records for Ralph. William’s stated his father was born in Washington County, Pennsylvania and the mother was Anna J. Keer. My family first began to try and document the men in the 1920’s. We have never found any reference to a Conover, Covenhoven, Knover, Crownover, etc. that married a Keer. Thank you. rreedy1923@gmail.com Marie Reedy

    3. Ancestry has been fixing the RootsWeb websites and mailing lists that have been offline for the last year or so. A couple of days ago, I received a notice saying the NJUnion email list is back up. Let's start the conversation again! PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted. HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to njunion@rootsweb.com <mailto:njunion@rootsweb.com> WHAT SHOULD YOU POST? 1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can. 2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list. 3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission. 4.

Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem. 7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.

    1. [NJUNION] FAUNTLEROY - CLENDENIN Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" four old photographs belonging to the FAUNTLEROY Family of St. Louis, MO. The first is one of Thomas T. FAUNTLEROY which is dated 10 May 1920 in St. Louis, MO. Thomas appears to be in his 50's at the time it was taken. The second and third photographs are identified as "Grandmother FAUNTLEROY" and were also taken in St. Louis, MO likely sometime in the 1920's with the woman likely in her 60's holding a toddler in one of the photographs. I believe that these are photographs of Thomas' wife Bessie FAUNTLEROY. The fourth photograph is of the FAUNTLEROY Twins when they were about 8-9 years old. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding this family: Thomas Turner FAUNTLEROY III was b. 22 Feb 1862 in Winchester, VA to parents Judge Thomas Turner FAUNTLEROY II (1823-1906) and Elizabeth "Bettie" Smith HITE (1841-1929). Thomas was one of 10 children born to this couple including Thomas Turner III; Cornelius Hite; Ann Magill; Robert Randolph; Joseph Whittlessey; Griffin Guilford; Elizabeth Dangerfield; Mary Barnes; Charles Magill; and Kathleen or Katherine or Catherine "Kate" Whittlessey, all born between 1862 and 1884. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1882 and practiced law in St. Paul, MN for 14 years before coming to St. Louis, MO where he practiced law for 39 years. After the death of his wife Bessie he remarried Lucie V. LEDUC (1881-1968). Thomas died 30 May 1947 in St. Louis, MO and was buried in the Mount Hebron Cemetery in Winchester, VA. His obituary notes that he was survived by three sisters Mrs. Randolph BALL of Asheville, NC; Miss Mary FAUNTLEROY and Mrs. Lewis WOOD both of Washington DC; and two brothers, Randolph R. FAUNTLEROY of Atlanta, GA; and Dr. Joseph FAUNTLEROY of Saluda, NC. Elizabeth "Bessie" Stuart LEE was b. 18 Dec 1868 in Somers, NY to parents Dr. Charles Edward LEE (1842-1918) and Mary CRANE (1840-1921). She lived most of her childhood in St. Paul, MN and married Thomas Turner FAULTLEROY in St. Paul, MN in 1890. The couple moved to St. Louis, MO in 1896 or 1897 and she spent much of her time due to ill health in Altadena, CA. The couple had four daughters including, Mary Lee; Janet Rankin; Elizabeth "Bettie" Lee; and Margaret Guion FAUNTLEROY, all born between 1892 and 1901. Bessie died 1 Apr 1930 in St. Louis, MO and is buried in the Mount Hebron Cemetery in Winchester, VA. Her obituary lists her daughters as Mrs. Edward (Janet) CLENDENIN of New York, NY; Miss Bessie FAUNTLEROY and Miss Margaret Guion FAUNTLEROY of St. Louis, MO; and a sister Miss Mary Ranken LEE of St. Louis, MO; and a brother Dr. Henry T. LEE of New York, NY. Bettie (aka Bessie) Lee FAUNTLEROY died Feb 1991 and is buried in the Mount Hebron Cemetery in Winchester, VA. Bettie was living in Spartanburg, SC when her father died in 1947. Janet Rankin FAUNTLEROY was b. 3 Sept 1898 in St. Paul, MN and married Edward Hume CLENDENIN (1900-1993) and together the couple had two children including a son, Thomas Fauntleroy CLENDENIN (1927-2013). They were living in Plainfield, NJ when her father died in 1947. Janet died 22 Jul 1959 in Plainfield, NJ and is buried in the Mount Hebron Cemetery in Winchester, VA. Margaret Guion FAUNTLEROY was b. 14 Jul 1901 and died 26 Jan 2001 and is also buried with the family in the Mount Hebron Cemetery in Winchester, VA. Census records provide the following details: 1910 census of Pasadena, CA: Charles E. LEE, age 68, married 44 years, born NY, parents born NY, a Physician Mary C. LEE, wife, age 69, married 44 years, 4 children/3 living, born NY, parents born NY Mary R. LEE, dau, age 43, born NY Bessie L. FAUNTLEROY, dau, age 41, 4 children/3 living, born NY Bessie L.

    1. [NJUNION] NJ State Archives Alert
    2. Robin M
    3. Hello Everyone The following important notice and information was released by the New Jersey State Archives yesterday. *********************************** Attention, State Archives Patrons: The Division of Property Management and Construction, in the Department of the Treasury, has advised New Jersey State Archives management of its intention to relocate the State Archives operations in the near future to accommodate Governor’s Office staff during the projected 5-year renovation of the State House. The current proposal entails moving the Archives’ public research facilities to 2300 Stuyvesant Avenue, in Ewing Township, outside of Trenton. The current proposal also retains the bulk of the State Archives’ paper-based collections in their current location at 225 West State Street, Trenton (this facility). State Archives and Department of State management are waiting for a detailed plan and projected timeline. We do not know, at this time, how the proposed relocation will affect and/or potentially curtail public services, access to collections, and open public hours. We will keep you posted as developments occur. *********************************** The impact to researchers is clearly unknown at this time. If the state could find another space, rather than the Archives, that would be far preferable! GSNJ will be update our Facebook page as soon as we have any new information. Please like and follow us to get the latest news first! Please spread the word. Share to any other Rootsweb lists you think appropriate. Thanks very much.

SCHEDULE 9:00-4:00 Exhibitions open: * Atlantus * Recovered Public Treasures 12:00-1:00 Civil War Flags Unveiling Ceremony: * Nicholas Ciotola, New Jersey State Museum, welcome/intro * Dr. David Martin, NJCWHA, flags/battle history 1:00-1:30 New Jersey Day Program: * Sara Cureton, New Jersey Historical Commission, welcome/intro * Nicholas Paleologos, New Jersey Council on the Arts, the story of Atlantus * Joseph Klett, New Jersey State Archives, overview of Recovered Public Treasures exhibit; acknowledgement of donor organizations 2:00-2:45 Lecture: * Joseph R. Klett, “Back to the Archives: Reclaiming Public Records” Descriptions of events: Atlantus Exhibition – Atlantus is a trans-oceanic photography project inspired, in 2014, by the 350th anniversary of the naming of New Jersey in 1664. The American province was so called in honor of original proprietor Sir George Carteret, Bailiff of the Isle of Jersey in the English Channel. The exhibit was curated in “old” Jersey by photographers Martin Toft and Gareth Syvret at Archisle: the Jersey Contemporary Photography Programme. Atlantus asks how two places that share a name, on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, perceive each other within archives and cultural memory. It will be on display for several months, opening on New Jersey Day. Recovered Public Treasures Exhibition – This one-day exhibition will feature a selection of recovered New Jersey public manuscripts from the pre-Civil War period. Since 2014, the State Archives has been involved in numerous cases relating to alienated records, resulting in the restoration of several hundred historical documents to public custody. To celebrate this, the Archives will display a selection of 18th-and 19th-century treasures. These include monumental items from all three branches of government, as well as local records: enrolled laws relating to Indian lands and Revolutionary War damages, the 1752 answer to the Elizabethtown Bill in Chancery (major land-rights litigation), estate inventories of notable New Jerseyans, and other items. Civil War Flags Unveiling Ceremony – The State Museum will hold its semiannual unveiling ceremony in the Civil Flags Gallery. The event will feature remarks by Nicholas Ciotola, Curator of Cultural History, and Dr. David Martin of the New Jersey Civil War Heritage Association. The story of each flag will be presented as it is uncovered for public display. Included in this rotation is a stunning regimental flag containing an ornate, hand-painted New Jersey State Seal. The flag was presented to the 23rd New Jersey Volunteers by the Sunday Schools of Burlington County. In March of 1863, residents of Burlington City organized a grand concert to raise the private funds used to purchase this flag. New Jersey Day Program – Sara Cureton, Executive Director of the New Jersey Historical Commission Director, will welcome attendees with brief remarks about New Jersey Day. Nicholas Paleologos, Executive Director of the New Jersey Council on the Arts, will speak about the Atlantus exhibition (see above). Its installation exhibit, and also circulation of reproductions of it to New Jersey’s public libraries, were supported by the Arts Council, the State Museum, and the State Archives. State Archives Executive Director Joseph Klett will offer an overview of the Recovered Public Treasures exhibition (see above). He will also publicly recognize organizations and individuals instrumental in the return of these invaluable historical resources. Lecture: “Back to the Archives: Reclaiming Public Records” – Mr. Klett will give a 45-minute presentation on the recovery of alienated public documents during his career. He will discuss the challenges and complexities of legally claiming documents offered for auction or known to be in private hands, and securing their restoration to the people of New Jersey. <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/author/jerseyroots/> jerseyroots | June 22, 2016 at 10:55 pm | Tags: <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/?tag=archive> archive, <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/?tag=new-jersey> New Jersey, <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/?tag=njsa> NJSA, <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/?tag=research> research | Categories: <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/?cat=22720> New Jersey | URL: <http://wp.me/p36wCP-4U> http://wp.me/p36wCP-4U <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/2016/06/22/304/#respond> Comment <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/2016/06/22/304/#comments> See all comments <https://jerseyrootsgenealogy.wordpress.com/2016/06/22/304/?like_actor=63228320&like_hmac=4d5f9034cba83fa7a19b1ccb17f9aafb&postid=304&like=1&source=sub_email> Like <https://subscribe.wordpress.com/?key=e490bf7bd33f34f617772de83cb67b17&email=rlcww3%40gmail.com&b=sfCh%26g%2CX%3FGxP.D2iFQRT9cbgNN%2FOE5t_E_eEXnyoM%2B_ZgDYwA%26> Unsubscribe to no longer receive posts from jerseyrootsgenealogy.
