Hello JW,

Frances A. Groves would have been the wife of my 2nd great grand uncle. I have her son as Frederick Down Wakefield and never made the Downing connection. Emma Downing was Frederick's grandmother. My line and yours descend from John H. Wakefield and Emma Downing of Smithfield ME. The father of your Frederick, Frederick K. Wakefield, was one of 15 children of John and Emma. I decend from William H.
You should have no trouble finding your history in Chico. Frederick settled in Durham. I visited there some years ago and also the cemetery in Chico and I found all the local Wakefields and Stanleys. I have photos. You have a cousin in the area, Tim Wakefield, who has the entire line, as do I. I'd be happy to share facts and photos and such. Please contact me directly at as I've canceled my Ancestry subscription as I'm no longer finding anything new. The children of Frederick and Frances (all born and died in Chico) were William Varney b 1872, d 11/2/23, premature stillborn twins b abt. 1875, Frederick Downing b 1876, d 4/10/28, and Robert Stanley b 1882, d 1/15/46.
