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: Johann Gebhart (John Gerhardt) Hibshman 1708-1771 Immigrant
This is a hard line to research and document, partly because the surname is spelled so many different ways in so many different records.  The simplest spelling (and the one I will use) is shown above.  From there it can go into Huppman or Huebschmann or any...

Holbrook line: Richard Brackett Immigrant 1610-1680
Richard Brackett is yet another of our immigrant ancestors. Fortunately, more is known about him than about many of our immigrants, and it is well documented.  Still, motivations are missing and we will probably have to leave it at that. Richard was born to...

Allen line: Bonus post George R Allen 1867-1915
Just to let relatives know:  As my birthday gift, I've ordered the Civil War military service records for George, and the pension records for his wife, which will include the pension records for George. I ordered them a week ago and it is supposed to take 4...

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...

Beeks line: Simon de Ruine 1615-1678
Simon de Ruine is one of those ancestors I'd just love to see, in person, and share a day in his life.  I'm not sure on which side of the ocean I'd like to be with him, but probably in the New World, since he was one of the first settlers of Harlem (yes, th...

Allen line: Robert Day Immigrant 1604-1648
Robert Day, another immigrant ancestor in the Allen line, was born in Kilburn, Yorkshire, England on or shortly before July 31, 1604 according to some sources, and origin unknown according to The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, volume...

This ancestor doesn't fit the Harshbarger line "mold".  Why did he live his life as he did?  I'd love to know more!

The "fun fact" at the end shows another version of the old "Telephone" game, I think.  Things sure got mixed up somewhere along the line!
