Holbook line: John Field 1616-1686, Immigrant
John Field is another mystery.  He is important to our family because he was the immigrant ancestor, and because he seems to be the grand son of the famous John Field, English astronomer and mathematician.  However, little is known about his life. It is bel...

Harshbarger line: Catherine Mancer Harshbarger 1830-1914
I don't often write about women in the family, simply because they are not easy to research.  I think about them a lot, though, and when I find a bit of information about someone I rejoice.  This is the obituary for Catherine Mentzer (Mancer), who married L...

Allen line: Robert Royse 1605-1676 Immigrant
Robert Royse is another of our immigrant ancestors in the Allen line.  (Stay tuned for a fun fact at the end of this post.)  Like many ancestors, we aren't really sure where he came from but it is looking more and more likely that he was christened November...

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...

Allen line: Thomas J. Knott, builder of Nevada
It would take more than one post to write about Thomas J. Knott's life.  I've previously blogged about his response to the murder of his son, Elzy Knott, in Nevada but I haven't really given details of Thomas's life in Nevada.  This is just a brief run down...

Beeks line: The Wise men of Lagro
I've learned a couple of things in the past week about David Wise and his father, Andrew. One is that I found David's veteran enrollment card for the 1890 census in a book prepared by one of my heroes, Ron Woodward.  In my last post about David, I had wonde...

Holbrook line: John Lazell c. 1620-1700
John Lazell is believed to be an immigrant from England, although I haven't found any information regarding his port of origin, the ship he was on, or the date of arrival.  He is also believed to be of French Huguenot descent, but whether that was one gener...

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...

I'm newly retired, and eager to get to work on my rather large family tree.
