Beeks line: David Rees 1655-1706 Immigrant
This will be a very short post, for such an important person in the Beeks line. We know that he was born about 1755 in Redstone, Pembrokeshire, Wales, that he married Elinor Lloyd, and that he purchased land in Pennsylvania in 1686.  At the time, he was ref...

Allen line: Samuel Chester, Immigrant died about 1710
Researching Samuel Chester would be fascinating, if it weren't so frustrating!  He led a very intriguing life, on sea and on land, but we don't know his origins. He came from somewhere in England, and was born about 1625.  His wife is believed to be Mary Co...

Beeks line: Jacob Wallinges Van Winkle Immigrant 1599-1657
One of the things I like best about the Beeks family line is the great mingling of countries and cultures.  There are the New England ancestors, and the possible Virginia ancestors, and then there are those from the middle colonies.  The New England ancesto...

Allen line: Daniel Scofield's ancestry, revisited
In September of 2014, I wrote a post about Daniel Scofield that was mostly wrong.  When I write my blog posts, for the most part I am depending on what other people have "learned" about an ancestor, and I try to filter out the most obviously incorrect infor...

Thank you so much for your comments.  It's always fun to meet new cousins!  I am not sure how much I "like" our Puritan ancestors, but I sure do respect them.  And Ephraim is a favorite of mine.

Ephraim is a favorite of mine too. I often wonder how he died. I know what you mean about the Puritan mindset. On the Fyler line one of my ancestors, Climene Fyler's sister married the descendent of one of the Mather brothers, not Cotton but his brother. I feel sorry for those men having to oversee what was going on at Salem. Can you imagine? Some of their decisions about the tragedy were interesting, to say the least. Othniel Williams, their descendant was also a minister.

I would like to post what you wrote, giving you credit and the web link on my ancestry account but I am not sure how to go about it. If I get your permission I will work at it a little harder. It is a fine document you have written about our forefather and contains some great information about Grampa :)

Hobrook line: Isaac Willey 1614-1685 Immigrant
I would not have wanted to carry the surname "Willey".  I'm guessing young children made fun of the name, rhyming it with Silly and tormenting him with their teasing.  I hope as he got older the teasing stopped. Unfortunately we don't know for sure where th...

Holbrook line: John Dixon, Immigrant
John Dixon is one of our Maryland ancestors.  His name needs to be mentioned and known in our family tree, even though I haven't found a lot of information about him yet. I've found two plausible sets of parents for him in England but am currently unable to...

Holbrook line: John Merryman 1614-1674, Immigrant
Usually when I write about the Holbrook line, it's about ancestors in New England.  I've also written posts about our few German ancestors,  We also had a small representation of ancestors who settled in Virginia or Maryland, and John Merryman is one of our...

Harshbarger line: Henry Matthias Braun died 1814
Usually I have enough information about an ancestor to write at least a few paragraphs.  I'm not sure I have enough for a few sentences about this gentleman, so this is mainly a plea for help. Henry Matthias Braun is believed to have been born before 1750 i...

Beeks line: Isaac Malin 1681-1750
A few months ago, I wrote about Randall Malin, Isaac's father.  Since Isaac was born about a year before his family came to America, technically Isaac was also an immigrant, although not "The" immigrant.  It seems that little is known of his life, but here'...

Thanks for reading this blog post.  I really appreciate my readers, especially when they contact me.  I haven't tried to trace the John Myers family, I regret to say.  I'm glad this post helped you a little and am sorry to not be able to help you more.
