Robin Lee! Thank you so much for this very kind recognition. What a wonderful surprise to wake up to this morning!
I could not have done this with out the support of several people who have 'gone to the mats with me' on cleaning up and adding to the Walton/Roosevelt line with a few Beekmans and Gerrys along the way!
Thank you, Robin, for your dedication, help and support. This has taken a Wiki-village and also includes kudos to Jillaine (PGM for Thomas Lawarence), Ellen Smith for her support with the Netherlands group, and Chase Ashley and Joe Cochoit for helping me to track down sources in the late days of June 2020 to dig up some resources. Robin, your mention of Elbridge Gerry led me to one of the Walton/Thompson clan and they are all connected. It's now going back and adding all the Walton kin, who are interesting interesting in their own right.
I'll be posting the 'line' from Thomas Lawrence to FDR this week as the bios and sourcing are near complete so that M Cole can add stickers (much appreciated). This revised connection also makes FDR a direct descendant to Charlemagne through Thomas Lawrence.
Again, all concerned, please take your fair share of this Wonderful Wikitree honor. Stay safe and healthy! cmb
And yes, Robin is much appreciated for this accolade.
