Fall break

I have quite a few pressing matters to attend to between now and the end of the year, so posts between now and then will be infrequent. But I will be monitoring the blog regularly to respond to any comments/questions/new information. And, as always, feel free to get in touch via chipsoff at gmail dot com.

Happy Autumn!

Death Certificates — Thomas Trewin and Mary Ann Phillips Trewin

According to death records held by the state of NJ, Thomas Trewin died (1875) of consumption (pulmonary tuberculosis) & his wife Mary Ann died (1878) of apoplexy (a stroke). Both were just 58 years of age.

They’d left England in 1857, so they had been in this country for about 20 years. Thomas worked as a carpenter. You may remember that in his teens he served back in England as an apprentice to master carpenter Joseph Binks.

They were buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Union County, NJ. Two grandchildren who died as infants were buried with them.

Elizabeth Sargent, newly discovered photo

I recently came upon this new (to me) photo of my great grandmother Elizabeth Sargent (her family’s original surname, Slaymaker, was changed to Sargent prior to 1870), second wife of William Trewin. Seems many of us descendants are blondes/redheads, and though the photo is in black and white, I think it is fairly safe to say that her hair may have been ginger/chestnut in appearance. Her daughter Zillah’s hair had reddish tones. The photo may have been taken circa 1882 — around the time she married William.

(Image from my family’s personal collection) Elizabeth [Slaymaker] Sargent Trewin, wife of William Trewin; she emigrated to the US from Northampton, England, with her parents Mary (Wills) and William Sargent and siblings in 1870.

(Image from my family’s personal collection) William Trewin, emigrated to Canada from Woolwich, England, in 1857 with his parents, Mary Ann (Phillips) and Thomas Trewin, and siblings Emma and Thomas; they all relocated to NJ two years later.

From Boys to Men

These two photos are precious, and when placed side by side, even more so. Charles Brodhead–son of Frank M. Brodhead and Fannie Woodruff–is pictured together with his cousin Richard “Dick” Brown, son of Dr. G. Carlton Brown and Wealthy Mildred Woodruff (“Aunt Mil”). The second photo was taken on July 4, 1942, Charles’s last time home until November 1944. He went overseas with the U.S. Marines (Pacific theater) a month after this photo was taken.

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
