A couple of the obituaries, that I thought might be either uncles or great uncles for the Blanchard side, turned out to not look like they are related to me, at least not directly. I will hang onto them though. Might be able to help someone else out down the road, searching their Blanchard line.
A couple things pop out at me:
-I knew that my grandparents, great grandfather (paternal) and my maternal great grandparents were buried in Spring Grove Cemetery, Stamford, CT. What I didn't know, is that so are my great great grandparents, along with various other members of the family. I am currently trying to convince a counsin who lives locally down there, to go get me some photos.
-My great grandfather, Milton S. Ede, according to family history, died fairly young, due to getting hit in the head with a roll of fencing that fell off a truck while he was working. According to his obituary, the poor man suffered for nearly 2 months after the injury, before he finally passed away. From what I heard, it probably was some sort of brain swelling or bleeding.
I have decided, since there are so many obituaries, that I will set up a separate page here on the site, and transcribe them there. Feel free, if you think you are related to my lines, to get in touch with me. Sharing what we know is half the fun!!
