I don't write a lot, but I do a lot of research, and the articles that I print or will be printing are "original" with MUCH of the information being "completely unavailable anywhere else" [but has been out there even for 100's of years, if people would just do their homework] ...

Such as?

Such as my assertion that Edward Davy was in fact the true inventor of the telegraph [its out there, read it], that Alexander James Dallas' great grandfather was Sir Nicholas Trevanion [its out there, but just recently published], or that the mother of Claudius Smith was in fact Miriam (Williams) Carle – relict of Jacob Carle and the daughter of Samuel Williams of Hempstead, L.I., New York [its out there, read the books].

I am one of several persons doing the genealogy charts of the family and associated families of Major General Robert Taylor Burton of Mormon fame, Brigadier General Joseph Dwight of the Colony of Massachusetts, Governor Theophilus Eaton of New Haven Colony, and others; and I plan to be doing individual bios on each.

I will not be forwarding any new scientific info and such, just things that have been there.

My Images[edit]

Deposition of Mary Walcott, August 3, 1692

Linked Here: Mary Walcott

As of 12:46 AM 6/19/2005 PST, I am currently watching the Mary Walcott page to make certain that this image is in compliance with any and all Copyright laws Copyright Talk

The University of Virginia isn't 100% clear as to what is and what isn't copyrighted on their disclaimer page, and I don't think that they have a right to copyright this sort of document, even though it was taken by a former government.
