Hi Debi:

Angeline didn't have a twin ... that I'm pretty sure of. Art, gggs of Anna Maria, researched this branch extensively in Collinsville and Canton, CT. It's interesting though that he's never mentioned the infant Henry! What I'm wondering is if the elder Ella could be a niece of Henry Asher. This whole branch of the family seemed to end up in either Pittsfield or Westfield, MA. Henry Asher is also my ggg grandfather. Asher Hinman was my gg grandfather through his son George Henry. Asher died in Westfield; his son George died in Springfield, but practiced veterinary surgery in Westfield for over 20 years after marrying Martha Cronin. My Dad, Edward Henry, was born in Westfield, grew up there and never moved more than 20 miles away. I too was born there and moved to Granby, CT (18 miles away) when I was three and a half. I've lived here all my life.
This search for Dad's half-brother George A. Deming (son of Harriet Burden [1st wife] and George Henry), has lead me to a deadend in Rochester, NY at the end of WWI. That's where Art came into the picture. My son also lives in Rochester ... so I'll be making another trip to the library and town hall there this fall. I've found lots of other Demings, but no George.
Ella the elder is just one more mystery! A trip to the cemetery with my niece was when I realized that the faded names on the back side of the family monument included this second Ella .... I'd only really paid attention to Martha and Dad's sister Ella, Granddad George and Grandma Martha. Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes can reveal some interesting stuff!
Someday I'd love to figure out how we may be related ... probably have to go back to Wethersfield!
Thanks for your interest ... I'm getting hooked on this and would be happy to help you out if I can. One day I may just find GEORGE and that'll be the icing on the cake!
Thanks, Chris Levandowski
