Family

Marion is the daughter of William Ceruti and Lucille Dawson. She married William F. Hoover, Jr. on New Year's Day in 1989. Now everyone can celebrate their anniversary while celebrating the new year!

Education

She earned a BS in Chemistry from SUNY Stonybrook, 1973; and the Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1979. Her dissertation involved laser spectroscopy of molecules in the gas phase, using computers not only for data analysis but also for data acquisition.

Career

Dr. Marion Ceruti’s career at Navy Laboratories started at the Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC), and continued with NRaD and ended at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Pacific. She was hired at NOSC as a physicist in June 1979. The first project was the blue-green laser downlink program, which resulted in NOSC TR 470 published that year. Taking assignment with the marine-mammals division in the Naval Ocean Systems Center Hawai'i laboratory on O'ahu, her next projects were associated with animal behavior and capabilities. She was a US Navy research diver and helped perform underwater experiments to test new devices based on advanced technology. In 1987 she transferred to the NOSC laboratory in San Diego, California, where she continued her interest in computing and became an internationally recognized leader in information management. Dr. Ceruti also supported the chemical- and biological-weapons defense community, having joined the Tactical Situation-Assessment Technology (TSAT) team, whose objectives included scientific and technical advances in the area of visual language, and chemical and biological weapons defense.

Professional Publications and Awards

Dr. Ceruti's early projects resulted in publications on echolocation, marine-mammal chemoreception and biochemistry, e.g. NOSC Technical Report 930 and a journal article in Comparative Physiology. As she developed her background in acoustics, she supported the aural enhancement of active sonobuoys and conducted time-separation pitch psycho-acoustic experiments, which resulted in several conference presentations and an article in the Journal of Applied Acoustics on how to train blind people to navigate in the absence of object cues. After transferring to the NOSC laboratory in San Diego, she received numerous invitations to write book chapters and journal articles, as well as invitations to speak in international meetings. For example, she wrote invited book chapters in the Handbook of Local Area Networks, the Handbook of Data Management, and Heterogeneous Information Exchange and Organizational Hubs. She delivered invited papers, for example, at the IEEE COMPSAC98 in Vienna and at the BMi defense conference in London, United Kingdom. Also a conference organizer, she was general chair of the Naval Security Group's and the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA)'s Federal Database Colloquium for 14 years. She managed a four-year program sponsored, in part, by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). The program, Knowledge Management for Distributed-Tracking (KMDT) was focused on data fusion, de-clutter, simplification of tactical information in command centers during naval warfare. This program resulted in many more publications, some in international conference proceedings, and a publication award. Dr. Ceruti published various papers on the next-generation chemical and biological sensors and their data fusion. Her paper topics have varied from soft-computing methods for diagnose and prediction of glaucoma, to the use of Maya hieroglyphics for military communications. Her publication-of-the-year award in 2003 was for her first paper in the Infodynamics series titled “States of Matter and States of Information.” Infodynamics is the information equivalent of thermodynamics, which includes other dynamic quantities in addition to entropy. Since then, she published five other papers on Infodynamics, one of which, an invited journal article resulted in a publication award of honorable mention. With the TSAT team, her haptic data-glove invention has won many awards. Out of over 120 publications, 23 have generated awards. Dr. Ceruti’s awards include: Cold War Service Certificate for service to the United States during the "Cold War;" Seven Honorable-Mention Publication awards between 1995 and 2010; Publication Award of Excellence, 1999; Distinguished Achievement in Project Accomplishment, 2000; Group Achievement Award of Merit, 2002; Distinguished Achievement in Leadership, 2005; Distinguished Team Achievement Award, 2006; Exemplary Civilian Service Achievement Award, 2008; 30-year Service Award, 2009; Federal Laboratory Consortium Far West Region award for outstanding technology development, 2009; Patent Application: “Wireless Haptic Glove for Language and Information Transference,” Navy Case No. 99084, 2009; Team SPAWAR Innovation Award for Science and Technology Product, Process or Service, 2010; Navy Meritorious Civilian Service Award, 2010; Patent: “Hall-Effect Sensor System for Gesture Recognition, Information Coding and Processing,” US 8,421,448 B1 awarded 16 Apr 2013.

Hobbies and Personal Interests

While at the NOSC Hawai'i laboratory she continued here life-long interests in surfing, diving, writing, and music. She also developed an interest in flying, having earned an FAA commercial glider-pilot's license with single-engine land privileges. She also became a flight instructor and joined the Civil Air Patrol where she became a safety officer at the state level. She is a member of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Suffolk Chapter, New York. She is also a member of the Hildreth Family Association. Dr. Ceruti is a charter member of the Historical Diving Society, having descended from the inventor of the diving helmet, Charles Anthony Deane. Decades after transferring to San Diego, she produced two compact discs mainly of Italian renaissance music and baroque music, which also included original compositions. She resides with her husband of over 30 years on Maui, Hawai'i, USA. She is an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church Monastery, a non-sectarian organization. Dr. Ceruti is a speaker and organizer for a study group that is focused on spiritual practice and experience. She is a member of the Kent, UK team. [1], and the Glamorgan team of the Wales focus group.

Research Notes

Some of the data in the United States Public Records, 1970-2009 are factually wrong. The record states that on 15 Nov. 2007 my residence was in Eastport, Suffolk, New York, United States. Actually, my residence on that date was in San Diego, California, USA. The entry regarding my previous residence of Eastport, Suffolk, New York, United States 11941 is correct.

In addition to her own family observations and private communications with various cousins, Hetty Stillwell Lee used sources from the New York Public Library, the Long Island Historical Society, and church records and from a family Bible. These sources included records from Staten Island regarding the early Stillwell family in the New York area. The titles of two documents were cited among the sources: 1. "Memoirs of the Stilwell family" and 2. “Notes on the Descendants of Nicholas Stillwell, the Ancestor of the Stillwell Family in America.” The first document was not found during extensive searches, whereas the second document is believed with reasonable certainty to be [WHS, 1883]. That either document could have been [Benjamin Marshall Stillwell's document (BMS), 1878] has been ruled out by the fact that some of the key information in [BMS, 1878] is inconsistent with [HSL, 1931]. The second document cited in [HSL, 1931] has been located and is present in the collections of major libraries. The complete citation of the second document, [WHS, 1883], is given below on the reference list. [2] N.B. Copies of [HSL, 1931] were distributed at the annual Stillwell Family Reunions, which were held from ca. 1923 to ca. 1948, mostly in the Woodstock Hotel in New York City. At least one copy of the document was received by about 50 Stillwell descendants who attended at least one reunion dinner. Many more copies could be in other private collections maintained by other Stillwell family historians. Therefore, it is not fair to say that Hetty Stillwell Lee's document resides solely in the collection of profile manager and family historian, Marion Ceruti, since anyone who attended the reunions is presumed to have received a copy, which could be in the possession of his or her descendent(s). It is fair to say that almost no adult who attended the last reunion is still living.

Hello Stuart, Thanks for contacting me. I have been minimally involved with contributions to Wales profiles lately. I have been most active in the Bahamas project because of the plethora of family mysteries on my father's side. My Welsh ancestry comes from my maternal grandfather. One thing that would help is to have a search tool that could find the profiles on watch lists with the Wales sticker or that would identify the profiles of people born, married or died in Wales (or anywhere else.) I have quite a few profiles on my watch list so a tool like this would help.

Best regards, Marion

It's time for our annual Scotland Project check-in!

This year we are hoping to learn what our membership would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. In case you aren't aware, this year is WikiTree's ""Year of Connections"" and the Project's leadership would like to contribute to this in as many ways as possible.

We would appreciate it if you would share your thoughts and ideas with us on how we can accomplish this goal. We would also appreciate it if you would provide some feedback on our existing goals, including:

  • If you have not yet signed up to help on one of the project's teams, which team(s) would you be interested in joining?
  • How often should we provide a Project Newsletter?
  • Have you participated in the Tartan Trail? If not, is this something you'd be interested in doing?
  • Do you have a question(s) that we could add to a Frequently Asked Questions page?
  • Any suggestions or ideas you have on ways to improve the Scotland Project in general

We continue to communicate with our Project members via Google Group (official) and Discord (unofficial), as well as G2G. You may also reach out to any of the Project leaders via WikiTree's internal messaging system at any time.

Thank you for all you do to help the Scotland Project become a knowledge hub for Scottish genealogical research! We wish you all the best in 2022!

Hello Amy,

Thank you for your message. Due to increased family and community duties, I have been unable to participate in the Scotland Project's activities. My efforts to trace my Scottish roots back further than five generations have resulted in dead ends. Most of my WikiTree contributions lately have been to identify cousins who have been disconnected from the family and re-connect with them. Thank you for your dedicated leadership. I wish you the best of success in the Scotland Project.

Hello Stuart,

Thank you for contacting me. I have made contributions to at least one Wales-related profile in the last six months and I would like to continue membership. I am not as active on the Wales project because I have had trouble finding sources about ancestors who lived in Wales. Maybe I am not looking in the right place. Do you have any ideas?

Best regards, Marion

Thanks for responding Marion. Your badge will be retained.

The best method for receiving help with research is on the Wales Project Discord. One of the channels is "research-help." You can post questions you may have and other members will respond if they can help.

I don't see you on Discord. If interested, let me know and I will send you an invite to join.

Hi Marion,

I would like to thank you for all your contributions towards the goals of the England Project during the past six months. We've achieved a huge amount during this period and we couldn't have done it without you and our other project members. As the England Project Leaders, we are completing our six monthly check-in with all project members. Are you happy to stay in your current project teams? Which teams are you most active in? Are there other teams you would like to join or become more active in? Also, do you have any feedback on what the project is doing well and anything we could do better in the future?

Hello Mike,

It's great to hear from you. Thank you for reaching out to me. You also have been very active in the England Project and I thank you for all of your contributions. I am happy with the Kent Team. I also am in the process of connecting my relatives in the Bahamas to their English origins as a member of the Bahamas team. The sun never sets on the British Empire and it rises proudly in the Bahamas, the team in which I have been most active lately because I have found family archives among my father's estate. It turns out that the majority of his ancestors were of English, not Italian origin. Who knew?

When this effort reaches a reasonable stopping point, I can switch to my attention to my maternal relatives with origins in Kent. My late cousins have accumulated a large body of information, including pictures, regarding the seafaring Deanes. I am excited to post this to WikiTree.

Best regards, Marion

Hi Marion,

Thank you so much for all your contributions to WikiTree in the last six months, and especially to the Wales Project. It’s been wonderful to have you as part of the team as we work together to increase the quality and quantity of Welsh Profiles.

I have you down as being on the Glamorgan Team here. Is this right? How are things going? Do you have any questions? What can we do to support you? Would you like to change any of your teams? Do you want to continue in the Wales Project moving forwards?

I also see you aren’t in on the Discord server. You’d be very welcome to join us where we have live text and voice conversations which really helps with collaboration. Just let me know and I can send you an invitation.

I look forward to hearing back from you with all the above.

Thanks once again,

Olivia, Project Coordinator for Wales :-)

Hello Olivia,

Thank you for contacting me and for offering support. It's always nice to hear from you. I am doing well and my projects are progressing slowly, with the help of others.

Can you tell me the best and most accessible online source of genealogical information available for ancestors from Glamorgan? I have hit a brick wall regarding my maternal grandfather's line of descent. I traced it to Wales. but I can't find the parents of Edwin Dawson (Dawson-7523).

By the way, using fan charts, I discovered that one of my ancestors, Amalach ap Beli, was the king of Wales who lived around the year 90 CE. Isn't that exciting? Who knew?

Thank you for volunteering to be the Wales Project Coordinator. I appreciate your dedication to collaborative genealogy.

Hello

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hello Amy, It's nice to hear from you. I am doing well and I have been very busy with various projects, including WikiTree projects. For the Scotland project, I plan to join the Twisted Thistles team for the Connect-a-Thon 2021, assuming that we have one this year. I don't really use Google Groups and Discord, other than to receive emails regarding Scotland Project developments.

Hi Marion, I just created Elixina Ceruti's profile. I'm about to orphan it if you'd like to take over management of it.

Hi Marion,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Joan, Amy & Lizzie.

Hello Joan, Amy & Lizzie, Thank you for checking in with me. I am doing well. Lately, I have been using the fan charts and responding to the weekly theme and photo topics. I am happy with my current teams. I have not used the Discord server because I am not sure how it would help. How do I get onto it? One thing I have had trouble finding is information about the branch of my ancestry from Kent county. I am looking for details about Jane Smith, who married John Cushier, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cushier-3. Any ideas?

I hope that the three of you are well and reaching your WikiTree goals. Best regards, Marion

Hi Marion,

As you will have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the Wales Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address? I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders, are in the Google Group, and receive an invitation to join our Discord server.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the Wales Project that you respond to these check-ins.

Many thanks,

Hello Marion! The DuBois line comes into my family with Leah Corlea DuBois (1687-1758), daughter of Abraham DuBois (1657-1731) and Margaret Deyo (1662-1741), when she married Philip Ferree, Sr. (1686-1753). Ferree is my paternal line. Are we cousins?
posted by Lucinda Ferree
Hello Lucinda,

I'm not sure I replied to your message earlier but I see now that you posted it a couple of months ago. Yes, we are cousins, both of us having descended from Chrétien du Bois. I think there is a way to tell the exact description of the relationship between two WikiTreers - a tool on the web site. If you know that, please check it out. In the mean time, I will try to determine the exact nature of how we are related.

Marion,

Have you read any of the sources given. Sitherwood has Thomas and Alice married and names Christopher born in 1716. Gives birth/death of Thomas and cites where is will is found. The Will book it is in is cited in the Sources. Alice's father and Hannah's father provided the Lippit-Taylor burying ground where they are buried. John E Stillwell has the Taylor family info in Vol 5. What else is there to be said? 2. Thomas son of Richard b 1666, died 1725. The opening sentence of Thomas Stillwell-1319 is correct. 3. He married Ann Hubbard 3. Thomas 3 son of Nicholas Sr, the emigrant, married Martha Balien/Balieu. died 1705.

Again, depending on Hay it is a copy of a family tree by Forest and Jean Ladd, alone and is not good. Please check the references. At this point I bow out. Good luck.

Absolutely keep relevant sources. All from John E Stillwell from "The Life of Captain Richard Stillwell" support the profile with Alice and Hannah and time line of the births of the children. Believe all of the are included in 46.

Communicating with Bruce now. Hope you got the note that Hannah Taylor is Christopher's mother based on the 1716 birth year and the 1712 land transaction of Thomas and Hannah. Sharon

Hi Marion,

It is a mess. See Thomas Stillwell-46 under research note. Sorted the three Thomas Stillwells with sources. Check all the Stillwell sources I used and Ladd tree and Life of Richard Stillwell by John E Stillwell has wrong wive for Thomas m Throckmorton and Taylor. Sharon

Hi Marion,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Kent. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current team and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)
