DEAR FOLKS, I AM WRITING THIS MESSAGE WITH THE HOPES OF HELPING SOME OF YOU OUT WITH FAMILY HISTORY. I RECENTLY PURCHASED A SET OF DIARIES FROM THE LATE 1800'S WRITTEN BY A LADY NAMED ROSE B CHEGWIN. HER MOTHER WAS SARAH ELLEN WALLIS. THIS SET OF 6 DIARIES IS UNIQUE DUE TO THE FACT THAT SHE SHARED THESE WITH HER BROTHER WILLIAM CHEGWIN. WHEN SHE STARTED WRITING HER FATHER GAVE A BRIEF 6 PAGE HISTORY OF HIS LIFE AND THE FAMILY JOURNEY TO CANADA FROM ENGLAND. SHE HERSELF DOES NOT GIVE MUCH FOR INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT HER FAMILY WITHIN THE DIARY BUT AT THE END OF ONE OF THE BOOKS IS A LIST OF FAMILY MEMBERS, INCLUDING BIRTHS, DEATHS, BIRTHDAYS, PATENTS ACQUIRED, ETC. THE FOLLOWING IS A PARTIAL LIST OF NAMES WITHIN AND THEIR BIRTHDATES GIVEN,
GRANDPA WALLIS (MAY 1, 1791),
GRANDMA WALLIS (JULY 15TH,1798),
JANE K. WALLIS ROGERS ( FEB 20, 1823),
WILLIAM WALLIS ( OCT 18, 1824),
MARY WALLIS VINCENT (SEPT 30, 1826),
GRACE BOWDEU WALLIS (JULY 28, 1828),
JOHN WALLIS JR (DEC 21, 1828),
E. WALLIS CARPENTER (MARCH 8, 1831),
ANN WALLIS CATES ?? (DEC 4, 1832),
Z.CATES (SEPT 19, 1830),
THOMAS WALLIS ( NOV 1 1837),
JAS. WALLIS ( DEC 16, 1839),
SARAH ELIZABETH CHEGWIN WALLIS (JAN 22, 1842) ROSES MOTHER,
WILLIAM CHEGWIN (JUNE 30, 1839),
WILLIAM VINCENT (MAY 1, 1820),
S ROGERS (MAY 11, 1806),
AUNT E. WALLIS (JULY 20, 1830),
JAMES CHEGWIN (MAY 16, 1837),
JENNIE CATES (NOV 7, 1855),
SERRA CATES (JULY 20 1857),
CHARLES WALLIS (AUG 11, 1859),
ROBERT H WALLIS (OCT 15 1859),
WILL CATES MAY 22, 1860),
JOHN R. WALLIS (MARCH 17, 1862),
LAURA E. WALLIS ( APR 5, 1864),
LIZZIE W. CATES (JUNE 21, 1866),
JOHN CARPENTER (FEB 2, 1866),
WILLIE CHEGWIN (MARCH 8, 1868),
SALLIE WALLIS (MARCH 29, 1867),
LILLIAN VINCENT (SEPT 15, 1868),
LIZZIE WALLIS (NOV 14, 1865),
MAGGIE CHEGWIN ( JUNE 20, 1836),
FRANK COOTE ( DEC 2, 1872).
ALSO IS A LIST OF MARRIAGES AND DEATHS OF SOME OF THESE FOLKS. WE ALSO FOUND ANOTHER LITTLE BOOKLET TUCKED IN THE ONE DIARY THAT HAS THE SAME LISTS. THIS WAS AN EARLIER 1885 VERSION AND DOES VARY SOME. IT IS OUR INTENTION TO TRY TO LOCATE THOSE OF YOU WHO WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE COPIES OF THIS INFORMATION. WE ARE NOT RELATED TO THE WALLIS FAMILY IN ANY WAY WE ARE SIMPLY TRYING TO SHARE THE INFORMATION WE HAVE.
THANK YOU & BEST WISHES, MIKE
