    I absolutely love OneNote. (And no, I don't work for the company and I'm not getting any compensation for this post.) Last year I shared how I use OneNote to create my Fab Finds Posts.

    Today I want to share another way I use it. I've discovered that OneNote is a fabulous way to save my place while I'm doing genealogy research. You can think of it as digital scratch paper.

    So, here's a real life experience I had while trying to find the death record for my Grandaunt, Edna Lillie Webster. I was looking through a record set on FamilySearch.org when the time came for our family to go to the movies. Hurray! We were off to see The Hobbit! But, I hadn't finished looking at the record set in FamilySearch. Bummer! So what did I do? I just used OneNote as a research bookmark.

    It was super quick and easy!

    In OneNote, I created a Research Bookmarks Notebook.  I organized the notebook like this:

    • Sections (top tabs) = genealogy websites
    • Pages (along the right side) = ancestor(s)

    OneNote for Genealogy Research 1

    Saving my place using OneNote -

    To save my place while I was researching Edna Lillie's death record, I copied the URL from the record set in FamilySearch.org, and then pasted it onto Edna Lillie Webster's page in OneNote. (see above)


     

    OneNote for Genealogy Research URL

    When I'm ready to continue searching for Edna Lillie's death record in FamilySearch, I'll just click on the URL on Edna's page in OneNote, and I will be taken back to the exact location in FamilySearch.org where I left off.  How cool is that?!


    OneNote for Genealogy Research 2


    But wait! There's more!

    Let's say you don't want to create a separate Research Bookmarks notebook. Perhaps you've organized your genealogy research in OneNote by creating separate notebooks for different ancestors, surnames, localities or whatever. And you want to just add your research bookmarks within those notebooks.

    But what about the possibility of these research bookmarks getting buried and forgotten inside all of those notebooks?  Will they be found again easily without having to go through each notebook? That's a valid concern if you're anything like me. I tend to research more than one ancestor at a time.

    Well, there's an easy way to find those research bookmarks again. How? By using the "tag" feature in OneNote.

    Simply create a "Research Bookmark" tag in the "Tag" drop-down menu.



    OneNote for Genealogy Research Bookmark Tag

    Then place that tag next to each research bookmark you create. Tags help you "remember" where you have placed your research bookmarks.


    OneNote for Genealogy Research Bookmark Tag 2

    To find all of your research bookmarks again, just click "Find Tags" at the top of OneNote.


    OneNote for Genealogy Research Find Tags

    You will then see this handy-dandy box (below) on the right side of your OneNote page. You can search for tags by Tag Name, Section, Title, Date, or Note Text in the drop-down menu.

    Now you're all set to find the Research Bookmark you are looking for and resume your genealogy research.  Once you've found the bookmark you want, just click on it and you'll be taken to that page in your OneNote notebook.

    OneNote for Genealogy Research 3 Tags

    So, that's it! I hope this will be a helpful tool for you in your genealogy research.

    Thanks for reading!

    Asbury Bateman Webster Tombstone
    From FindaGrave.com
    Photo by Crystal Vannest Danko


    Asbury Bateman Webster was born on October 20, 1840 in Racine, Meigs, Ohio.  He was the son of my maternal 3rd Great-Grandparents, Moses Augustine Webster and Amanda Melvina Carlisle.  Asbury was the second of eight children born to Moses and Amanda.  He passed away on December 2, 1849 at only nine years of age.  According to the United States Census (Mortality Schedule) for 1850, Asbury's cause of death was "Inflammation of the Lungs" with the duration of the illness being 60 days.1

     


    Asbury Bateman Webster in the US Census, Mortality Schedule, 1850 for Ohio, Meigs County Cropped

    I wondered what "Inflammation of the Lungs" meant in today's medical terminology.  I also wondered if this term meant Asbury could have had Asthma.  My understanding is that the tendency to have Asthma can run in families.  Asbury's older brother, Ebenezer (my 2nd Great-Grandfather), suffered from Asthma.  How did I find out my 2nd Great-Grandfather had Asthma?  It was documented in his Civil War Pension File.

    In today's medical terms, Inflammatory Lung Disease includes Asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, etc.  But, what did "Inflammation of the Lungs" mean in the 1800s?

    I checked the website
    Nineteenth Century Diseases, and it stated the following:
    "In the last century, cause of death often was listed as inflammation of a body organ; such as, brain or lung, but this was purely a descriptive term and is not helpful in identifying the actual underlying disease."
    I did a bit more sleuthing and found different information in the website  eHistory's Common Civil War Medical Terms.  According to this website, "Inflammation of the Lungs" was the equivalent to pneumonia today.

    So, with conflicting information, I guess it's really not clear what the underlying cause of death was for poor little Asbury.


    Unfortunately, Asbury wasn't the only child of Moses and Amanda's children who died before reaching adulthood.  They lost three more children:  two under the age of five, and one when he was fourteen years old.

    US Consular Registration Applications 1916-1925 Frederick Webster 1917
    United States Consular Registration Application
    for Frederick Emory Webster
    Ancestry.com (see footnote)


    My Great-grandfather, Frederick Emory Webster, traveled a great deal during his life.  He didn't stay in one place long enough to be listed in all of the U.S. Censuses.  In fact, I've only found him listed in three census records.

    But, there can be benefits to having an ancestor who liked to travel.  Especially if they traveled in and out of the country, like Frederick did.

    One of the benefits of ancestors who traveled is the possibility that they left a paper trail behind them.  I recently discovered this document on
    Ancestry.com.  It's a United States Consular Registration Application.1  This application is for my "Traveling Dentist" Great-Grandpa, Frederick Emory Webster.  Because Frederick traveled so much in his life, I've been able to find other documents related to his many travels such as a passport application and passenger lists.  I plan on sharing these other documents in future posts.

    After thoroughly looking at the details and information in this document, I was able to glean the following interesting and important genealogical information.



    • Frederick's full name
    • Frederick's date and place of birth
    • Frederick's father's name and place of birth
    • Date Frederick left United States – October 20, 1911 (new information)
    • Arrived at Curitiba, Brazil around 1915 and he and his family were residing there at time this document was filled out (new information)
    • The purpose for living in Curitiba was to practice dentistry (new information)
    • Legal domicile was Ironton, Missouri and permanent residence was the same at time this document was filled out (new information)
    • Frederick applied for registration at the Consulate in Santos, Brazil about 1915 (need to check for that document too) (new information)
    • Wife's name, birthdate and birthplace are listed
    • Timeline additions for Frederick's whereabouts from 1907 to 1917 (new information)
    • Names, birthplaces, birthdates and present residence of his children
    • Middle name and birthdate of oldest daughter, Carlota (new information)
    • Middle name and birthdate of Eugene Rollin (new information)
    • Physical description of Frederick
    • Added bonus – Frederick's Signature

    So, if you have an ancestor who traveled a lot (or even a little), make sure you search for any and all documents related to their travels.  Even if you don't know if one of your ancestors traveled, it's worth checking for travel-related documents, just in case.  You may be surprised at what you find.

    I had no idea Frederick had registered at the US Consulate in Brazil.  What a find!  Thanks for traveling Great-Grandpa Frederick!  I love the paper trail you've left behind.

    Thanks for reading!

    This is part of a series of posts dedicated to the immigration story of Debs Webster and his family.

    About seven to nine months after my Grandpa Debs and his family
    arrived in Glendora, California, they bought a new house.  It turned out that their Sponsor, Mr. West, was a home developer.  Debs and his wife Willis bought a home in one of Mr. West's housing tracts in Pomona, California.

    GoogleMaps


    Debs and his family moved into their new house in early 1953.  The house was brand new.  Grandpa kept this photo postcard of their new house.


    Debs Webster Family Home in Pomona California 1953

    Debs Webster Family Home in Pomona California 1953

    I really don't know the particulars regarding this photo postcard that was sent to my grandparents.  And I don't know who Ernie Kearns and Bill Tillman were.  An interesting thing about this photo is that it looks like it was taken after my grandparents moved in.  Upon closer examination of this photo I noticed two little boys sitting on the front lawn.  They're my two uncles.

    Debs Webster Family Home in Pomona California 1953


    This house wasn't very large.  It was a 1,008 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 1 bath home.   I found the home listed on Trulia.com.


    Debs Webster Family Home in Pomona California

    Within the walls of this modest 1,008 sq. ft. home lived six people - Grandpa and Grandma Webster, Helena Quillin (Grandma Willis' mother), my mom, who was fourteen at the time, and my two uncles.  Remember, there were only 2 bedrooms.  I'm sure Grandpa and Grandma Webster got the master bedroom.  So, who got the second bedroom?  My mom thinks she may have shared it with her Grandma Helena.  I guess my two uncles must have slept in the living room.

    My Grandpa Debs was a very generous and kind man.  He helped his relatives a great deal.  A year or two after my Grandpa and his family immigrated to the United States, other family members emigrated from Brazil as well.  These were my Grandma Willis' relatives.  Where did they stay?  At this very house.  My mom remembers that at one time there were eleven people living in this modest little home.  I really can't imagine eleven people living in this 2 bedroom, 1 bath home!  I'm not sure how long they stayed at my grandparents' home.  Probably long enough to get themselves established in the United States.

    US Consular Registration Applications 1916-1925 Frederick Webster 1923
    U.S. Consular Registration Applications
    1916-1925 from Ancestry.com (see Footnote)
    Frederick Emory Webster 1923

    In my last "Thanks for Traveling Frederick!" post, I shared a U.S. Consular Registration Application from 1917.  I also mentioned how beneficial it is to have an ancestor who liked to travel.  The paper trail left behind can be invaluable.

    The travel-related document I'm sharing with you today is another U.S. Consular Registration Application,1 only this one is from 1923.  Just like the 1917 application,
    this document is full of interesting and valuable genealogical information.

    Here's a list of the information contained in this document:

    • Frederick's full name
    • Frederick's place and date of birth
    • Frederick's father's name and place of birth
    • Date Frederick left the United States – April 15, 1922 (new information)
    • Frederick arrived at Irapuato, Mexico on August 15, 1922 and he and his children were residing there at the time this document was filled out (new information)
    • Frederick's purpose for living in Irapuato, Mexico was to practice dentistry (new information)
    • Timeline additions for Frederick – Mexico from 1902 to 1911, Brazil from 1911 to 1921, and Mexico from 1922 to date document was filled out in 1923 (new information)
    • Frederick's legal residence was Brinkley, Arkansas (this would explain the photo of him and his children at a dental office in Brinkley, Arkansas) (new information)
    • Frederick intended to return to the United States within one year or when business permitted (new information)
    • Frederick did not pay American Income Tax because his total annual income was insufficient (new information)
    • Frederick applied for registration at the Consulate in Santos, Brazil (I think that's the one I already have from 1917)
    • Frederick's wife, Esther, was deceased at the time this application was filled out
    • Esther's place of birth is listed
    • Only three of Fred and Esther's five children are listed in this application (little Eugene Rollin is no longer listed.  I believe he and his younger sister Alice passed away before 1923.)
    • Bonus again – Frederick's signature
    • Frederick's age and physical description

    As you can see, this document is full of amazing genealogical gold nuggets.  So, remember to check travel-related documents for your ancestors.  You never know what you may find.

    Thanks for reading!

    Last year, I shared a post about my Grandpa Debs Webster's brown briefcase which contains lots of genealogical treasures, including photos and letters.  Well, guess what?!  It turns out that Grandpa Debs had another briefcase too.   Here it is in the photo below.  This black briefcase contains some additional genealogical treasures.

    Grandpa Debs Websters Briefcase

    Inside this briefcase I found many fascinating documents such as school records, tax records,  and many other interesting items.  One of the fascinating items I found was this metal tube.  I don't know what kind of metal it's made of.  It's somewhat heavy and measures almost 16-1/2" long and almost 2" in diameter.  It's a bit dented in a few spots.  My mom said it's from Brazil, but I don't know how old it is.  I don't know if it belonged to my Grandpa Debs or to his father, Frederick Emory Webster, a.k.a. "The Traveling Dentist."



    I wanted to share a photo showing the bottom of this metal tube.  Just what is that on the bottom of the tube?  Could it be welding material?



    You must just imagine my delight as I pulled the top off of this tube and excitedly examined what I found inside.  I couldn't believe what I was holding in my hands.  What did I find?  Well, I'm not going to tell you just yet.  I'm excited to share the contents of this old metal tube with you in future posts.

    Have you checked with your relatives to see if they have any boxes, briefcases, or anything else in their attics, basements, closets, etc.?  You just never know what kind of genealogical gold an unassuming box or briefcase may contain.

    Thanks for reading!

    Remember the mysterious old metal tube I told you about in my previous post Treasure Chest Thursday ~ Grandpa Debs' Black Briefcase?  Well, it's time for "The Big Reveal."

    IMG_2313

    When I took the lid off of this unique metal tube, I pulled out something wrapped in a brown waxy paper.  Unrolling the wax paper I discovered several amazing documents.

    One of these documents was my Great-Grandpa Frederick Webster's Doctor of Dental SurgeryDiploma from the Western Dental College in Kansas City, Missouri, dated April 2,1896!  Unbelievable!  Here I was holding a document that was 116+ years old!  How cool is that?!  I just had to share this amazing find with you.

    So here it is!

    Click to Enlarge


    I'd say this document is in remarkably good condition considering how old it is.  The diploma measures approximately 19" x 14" so it was too large for my flatbed scanner.  I used my Flip-pal to scan the diploma and it worked great!

    My regular readers may know that I sometimes like to crop and enlarge portions of the images I share in my posts.  I chose to do this in this post as well.

    Let's start with the college name on the diploma – Western Dental College of Kansas City, Missouri.



    Frederick E. Webster Dental Doctoral Diploma 1896 Cropped Western Dental College Cropped

    I did a little research about Western Dental College and this is what I found:

    The
    University of Missouri-Kansas City website states the following,
    "The lineage of the UMKC School of Dentistry reaches back to the 1881 founding of the Kansas City Dental College, then a department of the Kansas City Medical College. Eventually, the Dental College merged with the Western Dental College to form the Kansas City-Western Dental College. In 1941, the Dental College affiliated with the privately supported University of Kansas City and became that institution’s School of Dentistry. Twenty years later, the University of Kansas City joined the four-campus state University of Missouri system, and became the University of Missouri-Kansas City. As part of the merger, the dental school became the UMKC School of Dentistry."


    Congratulations on your wonderful achievement Great-Grandpa Frederick!
    "By virtue of the authority vested in this College by the State of Missouri and upon the completion of the prescribed Course of Study and the fulfilment [sic] of all requirements of this College it has this day conferred upon Fred E. Webster the Degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery, who shall be accorded all the honors privileges and legal rights pertaining to the Degree."

    Frederick E Webster Dental Doctoral Diploma Name Cropped


    It was actually nice (and kind of a relief) to know that my Great-Grandpa Frederick really did become a Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.), and that he wasn't just traveling around on his dental boat "practicing" the art of dentistry.  Yes, I did say "dental boat."  Below is a photo of the "F.E. Webster Dental Boat."

    1896-1902 at Lake Charles, Louisiana

    I love that Fred had a Photo Boat too.  It's the boat next to the Dental Boat in the photo above.  And, believe it or not, Fred also had an Optical Boat with a sign out front that said "Eyes Tested Free."  You can see a photo of that boat here.


    And here are the official signatories on Fred's Doctoral Diploma.


    "In Witness Whereof is affixed the seal of the College and thesignatures of the Directors and Professors.  Done at Kansas City Missouri U.S.A. Second day of April, 1896."

    Frederick E. Webster Dental Doctoral Diploma 1896 Cropped Witness Signatures Cropped


    I thought it would also be important to transcribe the signatures at the bottom of the diploma, in case any descendants of theirs may be reading this blog post. It's always fun to find an ancestor's signature.  Some of these signatures are difficult to decipher, so I'm afraid this transcription may not be as accurate as I'd like it to be.  (Trying to decipher doctors' signatures…what was I thinking?)

    A few weeks ago I wrote a post about Asbury Bateman Webster, who died of inflammation of the lungs at nine years of age.

    Today we remember Asbury's youngest brother, Fred Lincoln Webster.

    Fred was born on  October 28, 1863 in Pecatonica, Winnebago, Illinois.  He was the youngest of eight children born to Moses Augustine Webster and Amanda Melvina Carlisle.  His oldest sibling, Ebenezer Perry Carlisle Webster (my 2nd Great-Grandfather) was 25 years older than him and had already served in the Civil War by the time Fred was born.

    Another older brother, Watson Emery Webster (not to be confused with my Great-Grandfather, Watson Emory [Frederick] Webster, a.k.a. "The Traveling Dentist") had also served in the Civil War before Fred was born.  Both Ebenezer and Watson were discharged from the service in Feb and Jan 1863 respectively due to disability.

    I've only found Fred in one federal census.  Here's Fred living with his parents, Moses and Amanda in the 1870 Blairstown, Benton, Iowa U.S. Census.
    1 His brother Watson and his family are living in the household as well.  Sadly, one year after this census was taken, Fred's mother, Amanda died.  She was only 51 years old at the time of her death.

    

    1870 US Census - Blairstown, Benton, Iowa - Moses Webster Family
    1870 U.S. Federal Census, Blairstown, Benton, Iowa
    Ancestry.com (see footnote)

    As you can see, Fred was six years old at the time of this census.  A short seven years after this census was taken, Fred passed away.

    According to the History And Genealogy of the Gov. John Webster Family of Connecticut, Volume 2, page 1185:
    2
    "Fred Lincoln Webster, b. Oct. 28, 1863, was killed by accident, Aug. 21, 1877."
    Fred was just two months shy of his fourteenth birthday when he died.  I don't know anything about the accident that caused his death.  I've tried to find newspaper accounts regarding Fred's death, but haven't been able to find anything yet.

    I'm not even sure where Fred died.  He could have died in Iowa or even Kansas.  Why Kansas?  Because in the 1880 U.S. Census, Fred's father, Moses, was living in Marshall County, Kansas with his son Ebenezer.  It is possible that sometime following the death of Fred's mother, Amanda, in 1871, Moses and little Fred moved from Iowa to Ebenezer's home in Kansas.

    As I related in my post about Fred's brother, Asbury, four of the eight children born to Moses and Amanda Webster died at young ages.  I'd like to remember the other two children in future posts.

    Thanks for reading!

    Last week I shared with my readers the Doctor of Dental Surgery Diploma which was awarded to my Great-Grandfather, Frederick Emory Webster in 1896.

    Today I have another treasure to share with you.  It'sFrederick Emory Webster's business card.  This little gem was included in a bag of photos my mom brought over to me.  I wish I knew just how old this business card is.  I know it's at least 67 years old because Frederick died on July 21, 1946 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.



    Frederick E. Webster Business Card

    It looks like Frederick, or "Frederico" in Portuguese, had a businesspartner, aMr. Benjamin Tomas.

    Frederick and Benjamin's business was in Santos, Brazil.  This business card is written in Portuguese, and I neither read nor speak Portuguese.  But my mom does, so I asked her to translate this for me.
    Original:
    Escriptorio Commercial, Cartas
    de Chamadas, Naturalizacao,
    Certificados, de Reservista, e Licencas em geral.

    Horarios
    Das 8:30 as 12: e
    Das 14: as 17: hrs.

    Praca Ruy Barbosa 14, 2 andar,
    Santos.

    Translation:

    Commercial Office, Calling Cards,
    Naturalization,
    Certificate of Reservist and Licensing in general.

    Office Hours
    From 8:30 to 12:00 and
    From 2:00 to 5:00

    Praca Rui Barbosa 14, 2nd floor,
    Santos


    Well, this is a rather surprising translation.  Why?  Because I thought this business card was for Frederick's dental practice.  But, according to this business card, it seems that Frederick was involved in another type of business venture as well.  And I'm not really sure what kind of business it was.  Calling cards, naturalization, licensing, etc.?    It's a mystery to me.  But, whatever kind of business it was, it appears that Frederick had a side business in addition to his dental practice.

    I shouldn't be surprised that Frederick was involved in more than just dentistry.  After all, he did have an Optical Boat and a Photo Boat docked next to his Dental Boat.  And speaking of his Dental Boat, have you seen the photos of the shark hanging in front of the Dental Boat yet?  Whoever caught that shark must have had a great fish story to tell!

    Oh, Great-Grandpa Frederick!  You were such an interesting and colorful character.

    Thanks for reading!

    Luther Waterman Revolutionary War Pension File pg 1

    Dr. Luther L. Waterman was my 4th Great-Grandfather.  He was christened 25 March 1753 in Norwich, New London, Connecticut, and was the son of David Bassett Waterman and Anne Bartlett, both of Connecticut.

    Luther entered the Revolutionary War in 1775 as Surgeon's Mate under Doctor Spaulding in Colonel John Durkee's Connecticut Regiment, where he served nine months.  In 1776 he served as Surgeon in Colonel William Bond's Continental Regiment.  In 1777 he joined Colonel Webb's Continental Regiment.  He served as Surgeon under Colonel Webb for one year.

    According to Luther's Pension File, he was at the Siege of St. John's and was present at the following battles:  Isle aux Noix, White Plains, Stamford, Horseneck and Rye.

    On January 1, 1778 at Franklin, New London, Connecticut, Luther married Phebe Barker, daughter of Dr. John Barker and Phebe Hyde.

    Luther and Phebe had nine children:

    1. Samuel Waterman (1778-1857)
    2. Erastus Waterman (1780-1859)
    3. Child Waterman (died 1784)
    4. Jerusha Waterman (1786-1867)
    5. Phebe Waterman (1789-?)
    6. Asher Waterman (1791-1875) [my 3rd great-grandfather]
    7. Eusebius B. Waterman (1795-?)
    8. David Bassett Waterman (1798-1851)
    9. Lucinda A. Waterman (1803-1879)
    The conditions for both surgeons and patients during the war must have been appalling.  According to the article Surgeons and Butchers by Elizabeth Rorke at ushistory.org,

    "…Revolutionary War surgeons did a notable job of attempting to save lives. Most were competent, honest, and well-intentioned, but conditions and shortages in medical supplies placed an overwhelming burden on them. Besides caring for those wounded in battle, the camp surgeon was responsible for caring for the camp's diseased soldiers. The camp surgeon was constant alert for unsanitary conditions in camp that might lead to disease. He spent a good deal of time aiding patients rid their bodies of one or more of the four humors. Common diseases suffered by soldiers were dysentery, fever, and smallpox. Most illnesses were caused by unsanitary conditions in camp."
    If you'd like to learn more about the Revolutionary War, the website The American Revolution is an excellent resource.  It contains information about battles, people, commanders, events, and more.

    Luther Waterman passed away on September 9, 1807 in Cazenovia, Madison, New York. He is buried in the Union Cemetery, in Cazenovia, Madison County, New York.

    I love military records and have found some fascinating and unexpected documents in Luther Waterman's pension file.  I will be sharing more from his pension file in future posts.

    Lisa Alzo, author of The Accidental Genealogist blog, has once again presented us with the opportunity to honor our "fearless female" ancestors by providing 31 blogging prompts for the month of March.

    Blogging Prompt for March 9 — Take a family document (baptismal certificate, passenger list, naturalization petition, etc.) and write a brief narrative using the information.


    Hilda Maria Carlsson Gillberg
    Hilda Maria Carlsson Gillberg

    On August 12, 1939 in Los Angeles, California, my great-grandmother, Hilda Maria (Carlsson) Gillberg, signed a Declaration of Intention1 to become a United States citizen.  According to this document, Hilda was born in Eskilstuna, Sweden on February 17, 1878.  She and her husband, Carl Albert Gillberg, were married on April 3, 1901 in Eskilstuna, Sweden.  Carl was born in Stockholm, Sweden on January 8, 1882.
    Hilda Maria Gillberg Declaration of Intention 1939
    Hilda Gillberg's Declaration of Intention
    From Ancestry.com
    (See Footnote)
    Hilda and her mother, Karin Johnsson Carlsson joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sweden.  They decided to come to America.  Carl agreed.  Karen emigrated from Sweden to the United States several years before Carl and Hilda.  The 1910 census states Karen's year of immigration as 1891.

    Carl, along with two of Hilda and Carl's three daughters, emigrated from Sweden to the United States next.  Hilda and Naomi, the youngest daughter, stayed behind in Sweden.  Carl entered the United States at Chicago, Illinois on September 18, 1909.  Karen, Hilda, and Carl all worked to earn the money needed for Hilda and Naomi to immigrate to America.

    This document states that Hilda entered the United States at Sault St. Marie, Michigan on July 4, 1910 on the
    Canadian Pacific Railway.  At last, the family could be together again!

    On the date this Declaration was signed, Hilda was residing in Los Angeles, California.  The document also states that Hilda had eight children and provides the names, birth dates and birthplaces for each of them.  Also mentioned is that these children were all residing in Los Angeles, California at the time this document was signed by Hilda in 1939.

    1. Margaret Gillberg –  Born July 20, 1902 in Sweden
    2. Naomi Gillberg – Born October 4, 1907 in Sweden
    3. Ruth Gillberg – Born June 17, 1911 in Salt Lake City, Utah
    4. Ingrid Gillberg– Born November 5, 1913 in Salt Lake City, Utah (my grandmother)
    5. Helen – Born September 4, 1915 in Salt Lake City, Utah
    6. Ida – Born October 26, 1916 in Salt Lake City, Utah
    7. Edith – Born October 26, 1916 in Salt Lake City, Utah
    8. Ruby – Born July 15, 1910 in Salt Lake City, Utah
    Hilda actually had ten children.  She didn't list the other two, Judith Maria and Carl Martin.  Judith was the oldest child and died in 1914 in Salt Lake City, Utah and Carl died in Sweden when he was only a little over a year old.  Hilda must have only listed her eight surviving children.

    Hilda became a United States citizen on November 20, 1942.  I have her Certificate of Naturalization which is contained in one of my Grandma Ingrid's
    Books of Remembrance.

    While doing research for a future post about my 4th great-grandfather, Dr. Luther L. Waterman, who was a surgeon in the Revolutionary War, I stumbled upon an absolutely amazing document.  I was looking through the following website:

    The Register of
    William Bond Papers
    1768 - 1777
    MSS 0080

    Mandeville Special Collections Library
    Geisel Library
    University of California, San Diego
    Here's the link to the website: The Register of William Bond Papers 1768-1777.  Clicking on this link will provide you with a long list of fascinating documents from the Revolutionary War.   I clicked on the link, List of men to be discharged due to illness from Colonel Bond's regiment, and to my absolute amazement, this is what I saw:

     

    List of Soldiers Being Discharged Due To Illness  Luther Waterman Signed Document 1776
    Page 1


    Here I was, staring at a document that was written and signed by my 4th great-grandfather, Luther Waterman.  It was truly an unbelievable moment!

    I knew I wanted to have a copy of this incredible document and I also wanted to be able to share it with you, my wonderful readers.  So, I called the library at UC San Diego and  was given permission to download this historic document and also to share it on my blog.  Of course, I needed to include a link to where I found it, which I've done.  The document contained two pages.


    Here is the transcription for Page 1 (to the best of my abilities):

                                                        Mount Independence August 23 – 1776

    Barnard Newel Ens of Cpt Draper’s Company
    Joshua Jacson Sargt of Cpt Child’s Compy
    John Hackelton Sargt of Cpt Cook’s Compy
    Nathan Newel private of Cpt Flatcher’s (?) Comy
    Abner Molton private of Cpt Mahew’s (?) Compy
     
    All of Col. William Bond’s Regiment being sick & infirm for a considerable time & in probability will not be fit for farther service this Campaign I do therefore recommend them to Your Honor as proper subjects for a discharge
                                                                                      Luther Waterman Surgn
    To the Hon.bl Maj. Ge. Gates



    Luther Waterman was a surgeon serving under the command of Colonel William Bond in 1776. He was present at an engagement at Isle aux Noix, at Lake Champlain in 1776.  To give you a historic perspective and background for the amazing document I'm sharing with you today, here is a partial biography of Colonel William Bond.  It's from the same website containing Luther Waterman's document.
    Biography of William Bond (partial) 

    "William Bond and the 25th Regiment participated in the campaign to conquer Canada during 1776. Congress had requested that General Washington send four regiments to reinforce the army in Canada. On March 15, 1776, the 5th and 25th Regiments received orders from General Horatio Gates to march to Norwich, Connecticut. On March 30, the Massachusetts regiments led by William Bond, John Patterson and John Greaton, along with the New Hampshire regiment led by Enoch Poor, arrived in New York. On April 21, the four regiments sailed in sloops up the Hudson River to Albany under the command of General William Thompson. 

    In early May, the 25th Regiment was preparing to cross into Canada by boat and reached Sorel by June 14, Chamblee by June 17, Isle aux Noix by June 18, and Crown Point by July 11. On August 10, the 25th Regiment was camped at Mount Independence, a hill near Fort Ticonderoga. The stagnant lakes and swamps around Mount Independence contributed to the diseases already suffered by the regiment, including smallpox. Desertions and discharges for medical reasons severely reduced troop strength. On August 31, 1776, Colonel William Bond died of illness at Mount Independence."
     
    The document written and signed by Dr. Luther Waterman was dated August 23, 1776, just eight days prior to the death of Colonel William Bond.

    I wanted to know where Mount Independence was, so I did a little research.  I found the following information from the website Vermont State Historic SitesMount Independence is located in Vermont, along the shores of Lake Champlain.  During the Revolutionary War it was the location of one of the largest colonial military encampments.  Originally named Rattlesnake Hill, it was renamed Mount Independence on July 28, 1776 after The Declaration of Independence was read at the new fort.

    Was my 4th great-grandfather, Dr. Luther Waterman, there at Mount Independence when The Declaration of Independence was read?  If so, what were his thoughts and feelings?  I wish I could read his journal.  I wonder if he kept one and where it is today.

    And here is Page 2 of this historic document:

    List of Discharged Soldiers Due to Illness during Revolutionary War Pg 2
    Page 2


    I tried to transcribe this page as well.  Here's the transcription for Page 2 (to the best of my abilities):

                                                                        Mount Independence Aug. 24 1776 

    Having examined into the cases of the within mentioned persons find them to be as there set forth & do concur with the Surgeon in recommending them for a discharge 
    To the Honbl Maj. Gen. Gates                       William Bond Coll 
    The within named Ens Newel  Sargt Jackson & Hackelton, & Privates Newel and Molton --- are hereby dischargd from the service of the United States --- on the request & Certificate of the Surgeon & Col. of the Regiment to which they belong. 
                           The Col. of the Regiment has liberty to give a (?) Discharge to each one of them --- Signing his Name                          “by the Genl’s Orders” 
    TiconderogaH (?) August 25th 1776                                      J Trumbull Depty Ag Genl

     
    I did a little research to try and figure out the name at the bottom right side of Page 2.  I found out that the name is John Trumbull, Deputy Adjutant-General.

    The second page of this document was signed by several people on two different days, August 24 and August 25, 1776.  The recommendation by Luther Waterman was agreed to and the men listed on Page 1 were discharged from duty.

    The discovery of this document is very exciting to me.  And I'm thrilled I was able to share it with you.

    Thanks for reading!
