Dear Beth,
I cannot TELL you how much I appreciate everything you've posted on the Linthicums. Among other things you posted:
**1900 Chicago, Cook, Illinois dw 2420 / 104 / 123
Linthicum CHARLES C. b Nov 1857 IL f/b VA, m/b VA, age 43, married 21 yrs, patent attorney; wife Eva b June 1862 b IL f/b OH m/b Ireland, age 37, 4 children, 2 living; daughter Eda b Jan 1885 IL age 15; daughter LOIS b Apr 1887 IL age 13; m-i-law Graham Mary C. b Sept 1831 Ireland, age 68 Widow, 3 children, 3 living; servant Alexander, Kittie b Nov 1876 Ireland, age 23 single**

Charles C Linthicum was my great-great-grandfather, and Lois was my great-grandmother. My mother "Kate" was named after said Eva--her name was Eva Kate Graham, but (amazingly) no one surviving in my family knew anything else about her--now I have her mother's name thanks to you.

As for your Stones!
I have had a lot of luck finding Samuel Stone the Reverend from Hertford, England b. 1603 (wikipedia, web roots connect), and it would make sense if he's related to your Rev. Samuel Stone, considering HIS prominence as a Reverend and I did (finally) discover that THAT Samuel Stone (b. 1603) had a son Samuel Stone by his SECOND marriage to Elizabeth Allen, which is not always listed--most of the listings I saw left OUT that second marriage which may explain some problems finding your link to him...?

(I am also thinking Elizabeth Allen might be related to Ethan Allen who was from CT also and, along with my other g-etc-uncle Rev. Jehiel Hawley made a religiously-motivated move out of CT to found parts of Vermont instead. At this time (1600's-1700's) there just weren't multiple unrelated families in the same "state" with the same name, am I wrong...?

So the earlier Samuel Stone was a founder (and namer) of Hartford, CT. Lois Linthicum married Melvin Moses Hawley, and HIS g-etc-grandfather was Joseph Hawley, who, with a couple of other families, founded and populated most of the REST of Connecticut and were renowned Reverends. If you ARE related to that Samuel Stone, my guess is our families lines are connected in many ways!

AND as for William "G" living with Abe T...
I also found that Charles Clarence Linthicum's father, Noah T., had a son William S. who was married to a Laura Ann Clark (I think?), m. 1851 Adams Co., IL--perhaps this is the William "G" living with Abe Stone? He was married the year AFTER that census in A. Co, so that makes sense if he was boarding with friends maybe before marriage?

I believe the Sarah Ann Linthicum who died in 1823 was the sister of my g-g-g-g-g-grandfather Joseph (b. 1785); his other sister was Margaret Lyons, mother Mary Leeke, father Archibald etc.

The son of Lois and Melvin was Melvin Linthicum Hawley who was my MUCH beloved Grandfather, himself a well-known Sheriff, Lawyer, Judge, State Dept, tremendous philanthropist, pilot, hiker, accomplished sailor, etc. He could build a computer and make pancakes with equal flair--he was a true renaissance man and now, researching all this, I know where he gets it.

Before a month ago I knew no family history so I guess it should be no surprise now how little other family members take interest in the past--I am FASCINATED and feel like I have a whole new family I care about. It's so nice to have other ancestry buffs who out there who get excited about OTHER people's lines--I'm the same way now!

I am related to the Dunn, Hawley, Linthicum, Johnston, Morgan, Rickman lines which I find running through KY, VA, IL, CT, NY like bandits from the 1600's on. Just in case any of those cross with another line other than Stone...

Thank you SO much for the scholarship on the L's behalf--it's meant a lot to me. (And I'll keep looking for Stones!)

All the best,
