Today I will be looking at the oldest daughter of Edward Marden Jr. & his wife Elizabeth Annis.
Today I begin outlining what is known about Edward Marden Junior’s children. I am starting with his 2nd child and will cover his first born, Nathaniel, after all the other children. Nathaniel is quite a puzzle, elusive and colorful. He will take more than one post to cover properly. I will cover the possible 1st family of Edward Jr. by a woman named Rebecca Jamison in a separate post later.
I have used up my available online resources for Edward Senior and Junior. Today I will provide descendants with a list of suggestions for further research. If I receive any donations from this blogs, I will use the money to further my research using the following guide.
Today I will review what I discovered in my online search for additional information. I revisited all the original sites, since there have been some updates to databases that may relate to the family. I also explored some new research possibilities.
I have prepared a map of all the locations mentioned for Junior so far in my research.
In this post I will examine what I have learned about Edward Junior in historical records and cover some miscellaneous items.
What Am I Reviewing?
- Census records
- Land Deeds from Grafton County
Today I will create a timeline of events for Edward Junior. A timeline is a wonderful tool for discovering discrepancies and missing items.
Today I am going to analyze the Marden family correspondence found in the Annis Genealogy published in 1909. I don’t want to assume all the data is factual just because it comes from within the family. It is an important step in understanding what I know and what I still need to verify.
I need to review what I have already learned before I can decide on a plan of action for further research.
At the beginning of this project I found 3 published works that addressed the Marden family, as well as census records, and later I uncovered some Grafton County deeds. I will review what I learned from the published genealogies about Edward Jr. in this post. Part two will discuss the specific sources within the Annis Genealogy with an analysis of the reliability of those sources.
I have done about as much as I can do from my computer and with the available funds. Now it is up to descendants to clean up the loose ends or make donations that will allow me to do so. This post is intended as a guide to areas of further research.
