Harshbarger line: Other names, other places
I don't usually write about ancestors across the ocean, but I want the Harshbarger family to at least know a little about their heritage over there.  The story is that the Harshbargers are "Pennsylvania Dutch" and in a sense that is true.  They came through...

Holbrook line: John Whitaker 1660-1713
John may or may not be the immigrant ancestor in this line, because there is some discussion in the world of the internet as to whether he was or was not the son of Aaron Whitaker.  I tend to think "not proven" so we will start with John.  It's not clear wh...

Harshbarger line, maybe: Peter Gearhart, maybe
Peter Gearhart is not yet connected to the Harshbarger family tree.  The reason I'm writing about him is that Mary Gearhart married Joseph Withers in Carlisle, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania in 1832.  The only Gearhart I have found in Cumberland County pri...

Allen line: Samuel Smith 1602-1680, Immigrant
As I write these sketches, I sometimes struggle to form an emotional connection to an ancestor, usually because I can't find a "hook" to draw me into the story.  With this man, I have tears running down my face.  Why?  He left instructions for each of his g...

Harshbarger line: Will of Christian Harshbarger 1744-1810
By 1810, when our Christian died, there were quite a few Christian Harshbargers in the United States.  I found this will on FamilySearch and thought that it was worth trying to transcribe it, in hopes that it will help someone prove or disprove their connec...

Thanks, Kristy.  It's nice to know you read my blog, at least while you're laid up.  Umm...I miss those wreaths!

Beeks line: Johann Gottfried Neimrich Immigrant, Revolutionary War soldier?
This will be a short post.  My hope is that by keeping this man's name alive, eventually someone will recognize the name and be able to provide additional facts so we can know more about this ancestor.  He is a bit of an anomaly in the Beeks line, because t...

Allen line: Edward F Allen obituary index: What does it mean?
I located an index for the obituary for Edward F. Allen on Family Search.  I was supposed to be able to view the actual image but the link isn't working, which is a huge disappointment.  However, the index alone makes me ponder some unanswerable questions. ...

Beeks line: Morris Rees, Thomas Rees and oh my goodness
I worked on the Rees line early in my genealogy life, and determined that this family, or these families, were too much for me to work on, at the time.  Looking back at my early work, I should have stopped several generations sooner than I did, and I would ...

Holbrook line: Edward Thurston, Immigrant
Edward Thurston is interesting to me because not only was he an immigrant, he was a Quaker.  Records of his immigration to New England have not been found, at least not by me, so we are left wondering when he arrived and when and where he became a Quaker.  ...

Beeks line: John William Teague
I don't know enough about this man to write about him, but I'm hoping that by posting the little bit I think I know, someone will see this and recognize him as belonging to their family. Part of the reason things are so confused about John, or William, or J...

Holbrook line: Washington Eddy and Joseph R. Eddy, Civil War Veterans
When I wrote my last post of 2015, I mentioned that there would be joys and unexpected finds along the way in 2016.  These men are the first fulfillment of that statement.  Who are these men?  They are my great great granduncles, two of the brothers of my g...

Seriously addicted to my family, current and past
Introduction
         
I'm newly retired, and eager to get to work on my rather large family tree. 
Bragging rights
I've deleted more people from my tree than anyone else in the world, I suppose!
