Events in My Family Tree: June 13

Suddenly there's only one marriage.  Maybe my relatives were superstitious and didn't want to get married on the 13th?


Jacob Gantt, son of Joseph Gaunt and Mary A. Lobaugh, was born June 13, 1801, probably in New Jersey.  He is my 1st cousin 5x removed via the Gaunts (and the brother of Joseph Gantt, who was married on June 12, which was a Saturday in 1813; did people generally marry on Saturday rather than Sunday then?  Otherwise, why not choose his brother's birthday?).

Dorothy Pamela Allen, daughter of William Daily Allen and Fannie Goldsboro Brown, was born June 13, 1916 in New Jersey, possibly in Burlington County.  She is my 5th cousin on my Gauntt line through the Allens.

Robert Warren Townsend, son of Clifford Barclay Townsend and Beatrice Fannie Allen, was born June 13, 1935 in New Jersey, also possibly in Burlington County.  He is my 5th cousin once removed on my Gauntt line via the Allens and the nephew of Dorothy Pamela Allen, above.

Deborah Jean Allen, daughter of Jack Allen and Gloria Funiccaro, was born June 13, 1957, possibly in New Jersey.  She is my another 5th cousin once removed on my Gauntt line through the Allens.

Maureen Randell, daughter of Ernest Randell and Mary Jane Wickham, was born June 13, 1958, possibly in Massachusetts.  She is the 3rd cousin of my half-sister Laura Sellers on her Bowen line through the Wickhams.

Tammy L. Brewer was born June 13, 1968.  She is/was the wife of Andre Joachim Rocke, who is my 2nd cousin.


James Earl Gaunt, son of Lewis Allen Gaunt and Sylvia Belle Black, and Mary Helen Burbank were married June 13, 1937 in Peru, Miami County, Indiana.  James is my 4th cousin 2x removed via the Gaunts.


Mark Edward Gaunt, son of Mary Wayne Gaunt and Minnie Louise Lotter, died June 13, 1954, probably in Indiana, at the age of 5 years and 5 days.  He is my 6th cousin via the Gaunts.

Jean Katherine Baptiste died June 13, 1964 in Woodbury, Gloucester County, New Jersey at the age of 37.  She was the wife of George Edwin Gaunt, son of John Webber Gaunt and Marian Hannah Livezey, who is my 6th cousin once removed via the Gaunts.

Ronald Gaunt, son of George Edwin Gaunt and Jean Katherine Baptiste (above), also died June 13, 1964 in Woodbury, Gloucester County, New Jersey, apparently during or very soon after childbirth.  He is my 7th cousin via the Gaunts.
