Holbrook line: Thomas Holbrook 1599-1677, Immigrant
We have a lot of information about Thomas Holbrook, but one of the things we don't know is when he was born.  He was christened on March 1, 1599 at St. John the Baptist Church, Glastonbury, Somersetshire, England.  If you're thinking that "Glastonbury" soun...

Beeks line: William Jump 1632-1709 Immigrant
I love writing about the immigrants that have been found in the Beeks line.  They came to New England, New Netherlands, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia, that I know of so far, and all of the branches are totally interesting to me.  Thomas Jump is one o...

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...

Allen line: Nathaniel Ely, Immigrant
We know a lot abut Nathaniel Ely in New England, but not anything at all about his life in (presumably) England.  The best guess for his birth is probably 1605-1610, but that is based on his arrival in New England in 1634 as a presumably young man.  His son...

Harshbarger line: Johann Kasper Schnerr 1732-1790 Immigrant
German immigrant, Lutheran, married to widow of a man killed by Indians, veteran of the French and Indian war and the Revolutionary War-what more can I say?  This is the stuff of which heroes are made, and unfortunately, sometimes their stories are lost.  I...

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...

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