Allen line: Samuel Lane, Immigrant 1628-1682
There is a lot of information about Samuel Lane on-line, but of course some of it contradicts other information and some is just not very clearly explained.  I'll try to pick and choose and leave the contradictory parts out of this post, or at least point o...

Vacations Allen style
My daughter and I were recently discussing a boating incident she saw which resulted in one boat having to sit out in the water until someone came to rescue them and tow them back to the marina.  That led to my casual comment that on my family vacations, wa...

Holbrook line: Richard Adams 1605-1674 Immigrant
Once again we have an immigrant ancestor about whom little is known.  His like is fairly well documented in Massachusetts, but his earlier years, about 30 of them, are more of a mystery.  Richard was born about April 21,1605 in Batcombe, Somerset, England, ...

Harshbarger line: Thoughts about Hans Jacob Loewenguth or Liebengud
I've long had the story about this family as that they were killed by Indians in the horrible attacks in Berks County, Pa in 1758.  In double-checking the facts before I wrote up this story, I am confused.  I may be missing a generation, it seems to me. My ...

Holrook line: William Comstock 1595-1683 Immigrant
We know a lot more about William Comstock than we know about some of our other immigrant ancestors.  In this case, that might not be such a good thing, because there is at least one troubling event that we'll need to discuss further. But in the beginning, h...

Harshbarger line: Tobias Miller 1731-1805
Tobias Miller.  I could pretty much end this post right there, because that is almost as much as I know about him.  There seem to have been several Tobias Miller's in this time period, one who stayed in Pennsylvania, one who went to North Carolina, and ours...

Holbrook line: Thomasine Belgrave 1562-1653 or sooner; Immigrant or not?
I mostly have been writing posts about immigrant or colonial ancestors, and I'm not sure whether my subject today qualifies.  I have seen her death given as "undoubtedly about 1620 in England: and as 1653 in Sudbury, Middelsex, Massachusetts.  As I write th...

Beeks line: Richard Bodkin 1710-1773 Immigrant?
Richard Bodkin may or may not be the immigrant ancestor for his line.  No one seems to know for sure where he was born, but it seems to be either Pennsylvania/Virginia or Galway, Ireland.  There were several Bodkin families in America by the late 1600's, an...

Allen line: John Riley 1625-1674 Immigrant
Oh, my goodness.  The "Life of Riley" is giving me an old-fashioned headache.  I've been trying to figure out which Riley's have proof or at least some semblance of plausibility and which are wrong, or at least, not so plausible.  The only "facts" that I've...

Allen line: Thomas Noble, 1606-1666, Immigrant or not?
I thought I'd found an immigrant to write about, but now I'm confused as to whether I should be writing about Thomas, or about another Thomas who was born about 1632. According to very sketchy information I've found, the Thomas I intended to write about was...

Beeks line: Johann Jacob Weber 1694-1744 Immigrant
Here's another Beeks ancestor who came from Germany. I don't know much about him yet but his is the start of another American success story, if raising a family in colonial Pennsylvania, with descendants down to this day is a success story.  Jacob was born ...
