Harshbarger line: Tobias Miller 1731-1805
Tobias Miller.  I could pretty much end this post right there, because that is almost as much as I know about him.  There seem to have been several Tobias Miller's in this time period, one who stayed in Pennsylvania, one who went to North Carolina, and ours...

Holbrook line: Simon Burr 1618-1691 Immigrant
I'd like to know more about Simon than I know now.  My folder for the Burr line deals with folks going back to Nicholas de Bures, born about 1224.  However, there was nothing in the folder for Simon.  Oops! So, Simon is our immigrant ancestor.  He was born ...

Harshbarger line: Christopher Kitterman about 1730-1806 Immigrant
Looking rather desperately to find another name to write about in the Harshbarger lineage, I noticed Christopher Kitterman.  He was just sitting quietly in the family tree, with no folder, no information, and nothing to indicate he was really a person.  Now...

Holbrook line: Edward Inman abt 1620-1706 Immigrant and also interesting!
I keep finding these ancestors, or rather, re-finding them.  I've known of Edward Inman for quite a while and even have his supposed family back for a few generations, but hadn't researched him at all.  As is turns out, he is another person that I would lik...

Harshbarger line: Georg Lindemuth 1709-1772
Here's another Harshbarger line ancestor, an immigrant, about whom very little is known.  We know he was born about June 12, 1709 in Bodigheim, Baden, Germany to Georg Lindemuth and Anna Catharina Bauermann or Baueman.  I have been unable to locate informat...

Libraries, a genealogy gold mine and a reader's rant
This is the best of times and the worst of times for book readers, especially for those of us who love history and hope to find out more about our ancestors and the lives they lived.  It's the worst of times because so many public and even university librar...

Beeks line: Johann Jacob Weber 1694-1744 Immigrant
Here's another Beeks ancestor who came from Germany. I don't know much about him yet but his is the start of another American success story, if raising a family in colonial Pennsylvania, with descendants down to this day is a success story.  Jacob was born ...

Allen Line: Nicholas Corbin about 1650-1696, Immigrant
First, I am not joining in the controversy as to the parentage of Immigrant Nicholas.  I know there are those who think it "proven" that his parents are Thomas Corbin and Margaret Goodver, of Halls End, but I don't have any reason to think that is correct. ...

Beeks line: Nicholas Lehew 1656-1719 Immigrant to Virginia
Nicholas Lehew's origins are a mystery.  Some say he was from France and a Huguenot, some say he was English in origin.  So far as I'm aware, no one has found a document that proves his origins, or his family.  The first we know of him is in 1670, when he i...

Allen line: Foulk Davis 1615-1687 Immigrant and interesting
It had to happen.  I had to find an immigrant who had real problems in his life.  At first glance, we can't be particularly proud of this ancestor, we may even want to turn away, but nevertheless, he is in our line and he must have been an interesting, if s...

Beeks line: Johan Wilhelm Altomus 1675-after 1719 Immigrant, or not?
First, I take absolutely no credit for the information in this post.  It was mostly taken from the Altemose Family Genealogy site at RootsWeb, authored by Dale Berger.  He has tons of information there so head on over after you've read this very much conden...

300 posts and " Only in Andrews"
I'm taking a break this week from regular ancestor blogging.  Today's post may be news to one or two of my readers.  Besides working on genealogy and reading history to better understand the lives of our ancestors, I've been researching and writing a book f...
