Beeks line: Civil War Records and Pension Records for David Wise
It is such a joy to read the records for David Wise, because there is much genealogy material in them, but also because it helps make one man, and his experiences, come alive.  It is one thing to know about the end battles of the Civil War, in Georgia and t...

Allen line: John Steele 1591-1665 Immigrant
This immigrant ancestor is a little easier to trace than some.  John Steele was born to Richard Steele and an unknown wife on or about December 12, 1591 in Fairstead, Essex, England.  There is a later marriage of Richard Steele to Elizabeth Bredy in 1595 in...

Allen line: Hugh Calkins, Immigrant, about 1599-1690
We know a little more about Hugh Calkins than about some of our other immigrant ancestors.  Research done by Mr. Roy Edwards in 1998 finally pinpointed his parents' marriage and his christening date.  Since they were both in the same location, we are taking...

Beeks line: Robert Carter abt 1648-1686, immigrant and mystery
Robert Carter was born most likely in England, about 1648.  This is a common name so it's hard to know for sure that family historians have found the right person.  However, a boy by that name was christened at St Peter's, Bedford, Bedfordshire, England on ...

Allen, Beeks, Harshbarger, Holbrook lines: My 200th post
It's been close to two years since I started this blog, and when I began, I had no idea of when I would be "done".  I still have no idea.  I know I'm running out of people in the Harshbarger line (direct ancestors) to write about.  Almost the entire line ar...

Holbrook line: Roger Mowry 1610-1666
There's so much information about Roger Mowery (Mowery, Mawry, etc.) that some of it has to be wrong.  He was born in London, or he was born in Brimpton, Dorset, England.  His parents were Thomas and Anne, or they were Thomas and Elizabeth.  He came to Mass...

Harshbarger line: Anna Maria Geis or Geise died 1813
This will be a short post.  We know nothing about her, except that she married Daniel Kramer in Pennsylvania about 1765 and that she had 12 children.  We have a death year, but no date, of 1813 in Haines, Centre County, Pa.  That's what we know about Anna M...

Holbrook line: Happy dance for another find!
You never know what you don't know, until you find out you don't know it...That's one of the joys of studying family history.  I love to get pieces of information that I didn't even know I was missing.  Yesterday I found the following article on Newspapers....

Thank you. I wanted that one to be good. It is getting better. Except for certain days. It doesn't help that July is so full of storms -- he was killed by lightning.

I'm sorry for your loss of your sister. You're right, people don't seem to understand unless it has happened to them. I appreciate your understanding.

Harshbarger line: Peter Jacob Fehler died 1753
Peter Jacob Fehler is the last immigrant in the Harshbarger line to write about, unless of course, someone breaks down any of several brick walls in this line.  There is discouragingly little to write about the man, but we know enough about the life of the ...

Allen, Beeks, Harshbarger, Holbrook lines: This and that
I'm a creature of habit, and I write about the Beeks and the Harshbarger lines one week, and the Allen and Holbrook lines another week.  So, here I am with an extra "fill in" blog, until I can get back on schedule next week. Looking to the future, I've orde...

Holbrook line: About Amariah Holbrook's estate (died 1797)
I intended to do a transcription of the court records for Amariah's estate for this blog post, but I find there are too many words I can't decipher (my copies are dark in places and light in places).  So, this will be a summary of as much as I can make out ...

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