Harshbarger line: Maria Magdalena Kunkle abt 1725-
This post is intended as a tribute to all our female immigrant ancestors.  It is much more difficult to trace them back.  They usually leave no trace of themselves, and once they are gone from this earth it is up to the family to keep them in their memory. ...

Holbrook line: Ralph Wheelock abt 1600-1683 Immigrant
There is so much written about Ralph Wheelock, including an easily accessible article on Wikipedia, that I am not sure why I am writing this post.  However, because my family may not be aware of their connection to him, I will give just the bare outlines of...

Beeks line: Thomas Conway abt 1654-1689 Irish Quaker Immigrant
We don't know a lot specifically about Thomas Conway.  One paragraph would probably suffice to fill in the known details of his life.  He was born about 1654 to Thomas Conaway and Mariah Tanney in Lisburn, County Armagh, Ireland.  The parents apparently are...

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...

Beeks line: John Smith, 1614-1710 Immigrant.pastor and mill wright
Any family historian groans when his or her path leads to a John Smith.  We have several in our lines, but this John Smith is only moderately challenging.  By that, I mean we do know a few things about him, and they are only slightly confusing.  Naturally, ...

Allen line: John Graves 1622-1677 A sad ending
I was all geared up to write about Deacon George Graves today, but I decided to first double-check my facts.  My facts were fiction, as it turned out.  So I've been spending some time learning about John Graves today, and his story needs to be told and hono...

Harshbarger line: William H. Withers estate 1936
On one of my trips to Whitley County, Indiana, I copied down the basics of the estate of William H Withers.  I may have had a copy of it at one time, because this isn't dated although I believe it would be from 1936, since he died January 24,1936.  I will m...

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...

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!
