Beeks line: David Wise, Civil War veteran: Did anyone know?
David Wise is the great grandfather of some descendents still living, and the great great grandfather of more, and the "ancient" ancestor of many, many Beeks descendents.  I wonder if there is anyone in the family, though, who knows that this man was a Civi...

Holbrook line: Oops! Not Anthony Eames?
I thought I was going to write this post about Anthony Eames.  There is a fine amount of information about him on line, and it was going to be a pretty good post.  But a funny thing happened on the way to writing this...I stumbled upon facts, documented fac...

Harshbarger line: Daniel Sayler, Immigrant 1708-1778
I opened up my file folder to write about this gentleman today and found nothing.  I had no notes, no print outs, no documentation, nothing.  So what I've found in the last hour on the internet will be the basis for this blog post, with a go to the top of t...

Holbrook line: Short items re Joseph Holbrook and Molly Wright
Joseph Holbrook 1814-1881:  I found, on Newspapers.com, a notice from the Chicago Daily Tribune on Feb. 16, 1881, (page 11) under the notices for "Probate Court".  "In the estate of Joseph R. Holbrook, the will was proven and admitted to probate, and letter...

Harshbarger line: Johann Peter Behney 171-1784
Johann Peter Behney or Bene would be another German immigrant in the Harshbarger line, except for one thing.  He lived just on the other side of the border, in what was then Alsace but is now France.  It appears that the Bene family may not have been there ...

Holbrook line: Hiram A Stanard: Sometimes a little find says a lot
I've delayed writing about my second great grandfather for these many months, because while I knew a little bit about him, I didn't feel like I had a good "handle" on him.  I wanted something to point to what kind of man he was, before I could tell his stor...

Harshbarger line: George Harter (Herder) m. Eva Bracker
We know so little about George that it seems useless to do a blog post about him.  I'm writing this because he does appear to be an immigrant, and because I frequently review my posts to see what else I need to learn about the subject of the post. Johan Geo...

Beeks line: John W Beeks newspaper find
I came across a newspaper article mentioning John W Beeks on Newspapers.com.  It's from the Huntington Herald of December 13, 1911, page 1.  (You can also view this on microfilm at the Indiana room of the Huntington, Indiana public library if you want to se...

Allen line: George R Allen's Civil War records! Dance On!
Great joy and emotional discomfort are just two of the feelings I'm having as I write this post.  It is the result of my birthday gift from my husband, finally being able to order the Civil War records for my great grandfather, George R Allen (1837-1915).  ...

Beeks line: Morgan Abraham-not quite an immigrant
Oh, how cool!  I've just seen the will for this man, actual digital images on line at the National Library of Wales. I am supposed to cite the record thus:  http://handle.net/10107/934427.  Fortunately, the will is in English so I can read some of it. Other...

Allen line: Mary Adams Knott 1769 or 1773-1846
I would certainly like to engage some distant cousins who I know are interested in this line, to give some input into this post.  I think there are a few clues that are out there, that we haven't yet pulled together, that may enable us to figure out who thi...
