Philip Henry Hale[edit]

Hello. Just created Philip Henry Hale. Please help me expand it and add more references if you can. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 08:31, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

He (like Bush) is not among the people I usually follow. I'll take a look but I'm doubtful I'll be much help here.- Nunh-huh 15:09, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
The backbone is from the e-book I requested. I only found one obituary on though, which is odd.Zigzig20s (talk) 16:53, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

William Henry Bush[edit]

Maybe you can help me find his daughters's names? I wonder if the land is still owned by his descendants.Zigzig20s (talk) 14:47, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

His daughters were Caroline Gentry Bush b. 1909 and Ruth Emmeline Bush (1910-1955). Caroline Gentry Bush married Frederick Latham Emeny and had at least one daughter, Ruth Bush Emeny; Ruth Emmeline Bush married Francis Thomas O'Brien (1901-1986) and had at least two daughters, Gwendolyn Bush O'Brien b. 1937 and Caroline Bush O'Brien b. 1939. Can be reffed to [1] - Nunh-huh 15:13, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. Is the reference on p. 412?Zigzig20s (talk) 16:54, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
The link should take you directly to the right page; it's p. 412 in the Google book though the page itself bears the page #6. I think it's in an appendix to the book, Descendants of General Richard Gentry, which started a repagination. - Nunh-huh 23:59, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
I've added his daughters, not his grandchildren though (not sure if they are notable). Was he a descendant of Richard Gentry? If so, do you know if the book explains how?Zigzig20s (talk) 16:14, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
He wasn't a descendant of Richard Gentry. His wife Ruth Russell Gentry was. Richard Harrison Gentry was a son of General Richard Gentry, and the rest of the descent is on the referenced page. She was a great-granddaughter of the general. Probably not important enough to include a wife's descent. - Nunh-huh 16:21, 7 October 2015 (UTC)


In case you are interested, I have started William D. Orthwein and Frederick C. Orthwein. Maybe you can help expand them with in-line referenced info, etc.Zigzig20s (talk) 05:02, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Also, more recent: Adolphus Busch Orthwein. Will try to connect them all.Zigzig20s (talk) 15:49, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Could you please upload this picture to Wikimedia Commons and add it to the infobox?Zigzig20s (talk) 05:49, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

There's no copyright information there; the photo is marked as being from the Harvard Archives, and there's no year for the photo or when it was published. Without copyright info, it won't be accepted at Commons. - Nunh-huh 15:08, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
Are you able find his fifth child's name?Zigzig20s (talk) 08:40, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
I will look. There were at least two daughters, Rosamond and Mary Emerson Forbes, but I don't know their married names yet so I can't say if one was Mrs. Carl Pickhardt.- Nunh-huh 15:08, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
  1. Rosamond Forbes. She was born in Milton, Massachusetts, on 14 October 1908. She married Carl Emile Pickhardt (an artist). He was born in Westwood, Massachusetts, in 1908. He died in 2004.
  2. John Murray Forbes. He was born in Milton, Massachusetts, on 14 July 1910.
  3. Mary Emerson Forbes. She was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on 26 October 1912.
  4. Elliott Forbes. He was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on 30 August 1917. He died in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on 10 January 2006. He married Kathleen Brooks Allen.
  5. Anne Forbes. She was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on 18 May 1919. - Nunh-huh 16:43, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
Do you have a reference from a book or newspaper please?Zigzig20s (talk) 07:02, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
I haven't found a reference in which the whole family is mentioned. - Nunh-huh 19:06, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Grenville Lindall Winthrop[edit]

FYI. Perhaps you can help me expand it too. I think I'll try to create an article about his brother Frederic. (I found an obit on Jstor). I am surprised Grenville's article hadn't been created!Zigzig20s (talk) 07:03, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Oliver Harriman[edit]

Are you able to find a picture for User:Zigzig20s/Oliver Harriman please? I will try to expand his page with more articles from over the weekend. I think his son, Oliver Harriman, Jr., should also have his own page. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 03:32, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
