- Here's a good starting point for genealogical research on
Resources on the Net
- A page full of information on using the Net for research.
- Lots of good links with descriptions.
- A genealogy forum with many discussion groups on various
family lines. I watch the ones for Wadsworth,
- You can visit the page I have put up at the the Family
Tree Maker website, though it does not actually contain
as much information as you'll find right here on this
page. What is really cool is
the family tree I published there using Family Tree
Maker. It can be accessed at the bottom of the page but
I've also put a copy of the link right here: Linda
Blanchard - InterneTree which you can use to run the
java aplet that lets you explore our family research,
such as it is thusfar. This applet will let you ask for
an index of all names (just press the letter F once the
aplet is running), an index which includes:
- Howard Malcom Blanchard and Mabel Fowle, m. February 3,
1889 in Duxbury, MA
- Malcom MacQuarrie and Minetta Murray, late 1800s in Nova
- Henry Franklin Moberly and Anna Morton Laidley, m.
February 14, 1895, in Summersville MO
- Thomas Richard Redd Shacklette and Mabel Williams, late
1800s in Missouri
- George Fowle and Susan Hunt, m. August 31, 1866 in
- Seth Hunt and Huldah Wadsworth, m. May 12, 1801 in

Blanchard Family Research
Actually, the Blanchard line is pretty complete back to Thomas
Blanchard, who arrived in Charlestown, Mass in 1636. But we are
working on collateral lines to that, plus my paternal
grandmother's line (MacQuarries) and my mother's line (Moberlys
and more). Below is a short list of connections -- more properly
they are the broken ends of threads I'd like to reweave. If
anyone has information on these, I'd appreciate it. Someday I
hope to have more information about these lines up on the Net,
but that will not be for a while. In the meantime, if any of
these names are familiar to you, please feel free to Email Me.

- Huldah WADSWORTH
- born (probably August 4, 1783) (probably daughter of
Joseph Wadsworth and Anna Drew. I am having trouble
proving her connection to Joseph, though I have a lot of
peripheral evidence that points to it, like her age being
the same and her birthday falling in the same quarter as
the Huldah Wadsworth who was clearly Joseph's daughter.
She married Seth Hunt, in Duxbury, MA, May 12, 1801.
Their children were Adeline, Wadsworth, Seth, Huldah,
Elisabeth W. Judith, Samuel W., Joseph W., and William F.
(born 1802-1827). Samuel W. Hunt married Susan Holmes,
November 25, 1844. Their children were Charles E. Hunt,
Sarah and Susan E (identical twins), Mary E., Samuel W.,
Helen B., and Lillian G. It was Susan E who married
George Fowle (circa 1860). Their daughter, Mabel W. Fowle
married Howard Malcom Blanchard February 3, 1889.
- James K. KENDALL
- born in the late 1700s to early 1800s, probably in
Massachusetts (though he may be an immigrant). He married
Caroline Kendall November 9, 1823, in Boston, MA (then
Suffolk county). The only children I know they had for
certain are Caroline (b. Nov 4, 1823-1825? d. Oct 13,
1890 in Marshfield, Mass) and Edward (b. March 4, 1827,
d. May 30, 1891). While it is Caroline who is my
ancestor, her brother, Ned,
was famous for playing the bugle. The family history
has the Ned play the bugle for the Queen of England, and
there's a story of a famous phrase associated with his
carreer, "That's either the Devil or Ned Kendall
playing." Caroline married Bradford Blanchard, March
Edna MacQuarrie was born May 2, 1901, in Westville, Nova
Scotia. I have a sketchy outline of her family history, but not
enough. She died in October 1997, my last living grandparent. And
I miss her.

We are always trying to find more information on the Moberly
line (Mobberley) in Belmont County, Ohio. Our John Moberly who
married Mary Ann Street, and their parents John and Lucinda
Moberly are the last really solid connections we have there,
though the Moberly
researchers on the Net have given us some pretty good leads
back into the poorly recorded years beyond.
We are also working on Pipes, Redd, and Streets that connect
to this line, and have some very good information on Shacklettes
