About Murma-Enman-Caldwell Connections
Please sign in to see more.
There is a destiny that makes us brothers, 
 No one goes his way alone; 
 All that we send into the lives of others, 
 Comes back into our own. 
              Edwin Markham, on brotherhood

We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted... Each of us contains within us  this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations,  sacred memories and future promise. 
  - Edward Sellner -


The information was gathered by Walter A. Murma (1918-1981) from family members in the United  States and by correspondence with the Lithuanian branch in Vilnius and Australia.  Current  information on the family has come, via e-mail, from Sigitas Sulcas in Lithuania. 


All information is from extensive work done by Mildred (Enman) De Nooy,  (Prince Edward Island Archives has 12 binders of information compiled by Mildred, copies sent to Norma Falconer),  Richard Mark Enman, and Norma (Milligan) Falconer (see "The  Enman Family" at tribalpages.com). The McInnis family and the families of the children of Evelyn Enman were researched by Saralee M Caldwell.


Research by Dorcas (Pratt) Caldwell and Patricia (DeCuio) Caldwell; this information was input into a data base by Susan M Caldwell and can not be retrieved.  Sue did a printout before the data was lost and I have worked from that and from a box full of documents she sent me, some original, some copies. All documents were returned to Sue in 2015.


From Arlene (Somers) Gillian, Patty and Heather MacInnis and Sheila Wigmore, and information and photos left by Mary B  (McInnis) Enman.


Information, biographies and photographs from Cathryn (De Nooy) Smyers of Montana, and Karen Lynne  Zisko of California. Karen also provided me with a printed genealogy 'The Horak-Pavlicek Families  Through the Years' prepared for Richard Zisko by Paul V Kosek, which contains family narrative and  photos, but no references. (See photo section)


The majority of information came from Dennis Lee Garrehy, a genealogy he prepared in August of  1989.


Historical information is from "A Genealogy of Selected Northumberland County, Pennsylvania,  Pioneer Families, from the Arrival of the Immigrant Ancestors to the Present Time; Part XI, The  Johan Jacob Hummel Family", compiled by Joseph A Meiser, Jr., B.S., Ph.D., Sarah Roadarmel  Meiser, and Dorothy Schuck Amerman. Published by the authors 1983.  Current family information on  the George Phillip Hummel, b. 1727, branch can be found in "The Hommel/Hummel & Lewis Families" on  tribalpages.com, research by Michael E. Hommel. 


From William MacLeod and Marjorie (Matthews) Bemont, both late of Massachusetts. Two wonderful genealogy and email friends, both missed so very much.


Information from Veryl Geraldine Cates and from a manuscript entitled "The Ancestry of Paul R.  Phillips, compiled by Helen M. Phillips". The manuscript, of which I have a copy, was originally typed with photos, documents, family group sheets and charts. The copy was returned to Mrs. Dean Barnette in 2009. Additional information and research by Saralee M Caldwell.


All this information was given to me by Susan M Caldwell and/or Dorcas (Pratt) Caldwell, and was prepared, apparently, by one of the children of Charles G. Pratt as references are made as: "dad's second brother" (Thomas  Franklin Pratt) "mother's father" (John S. Jewett).   This person obviously had access not only to many living persons in 1962, when this hand typed document was prepared, but also access to the family Bible or Bibles.  Many family photos provided by Betty Lou (Baker) Honaker from an album kept by Grace L Pratt. Historical research by Saralee M  Caldwell. I found a set of photos on ancestry in July 2020 which were posted by PattersonS294; wrote to the gentleman who posted the photos asking where they came from and received the following email: Hi Saralee-this is Steve, I purchase civil war era photo albums that have pictures with names attached so I can build a family tree and put in photos to preserve them forever on ancestry! That way any ancestors in the future will know what they looked like. I purchased this beautiful blue album off EBay from Lincoln, Michigan in May (of 2020). I believe it was Charles G. Pratt’s mother’s album - Nancy Hawks McClure - or it was Charles G. Pratt’s album because he seems to be the focal point of album! Steve


From Dorothy (Schuck) Amerman via Dorcas Jean (Pratt) Caldwell.
