Can we add Categories for Descendants of Roger Williams

+3 votes


I am a 10th great grandson of Roger Williams. 

Can we create categories for Roger Williams Descendants and His nearer descendants who are listed on the Roger Williams Society website?

Here is my line to Roger Williams. Interesting note is that Many of my ancestors through the Pease's were well respected citizens of Salem Massachusetts when Roger Williams was banished. 

1. William is the son of Thomas Pease [confident] 
2. Thomas is the son of Edward Andrew Pease (1891-1967) [confident] 
3. Edward is the son of Alice E (Batchelder) Pease (1862-1939) [confident] 
4. Alice is the daughter of Elmina Sophia (Bowen) Mason (1838-1916) [confident] 
5. Elmina is the daughter of Sophia Buffum (1806-1866) [confident] 
6. Sophia is the daughter of Caleb Buffum (abt.1781-1857) [confident] 
7. Caleb is the son of Jemima Esten (1759-1854) [confident] 
8. Jemima is the daughter of Lydia (Colwell) Esten (1732-1818) [confident] 
9. Lydia is the daughter of Martha (Winsor) Colwell (1703-1797) [confident] 
10. Martha is the daughter of Samuel Winsor III (1677-1758) [confident] 
11. Samuel is the son of Mercy (Williams) Winsor (1640-1705) [confident] 
12. Mercy is the daughter of Roger Williams (abt.1606-1683) [confident]

Hi William, you may want to place this sticker on the associated Profile(s) to denote their descendancy..

Sticker Template:Descendant


I hadn't thought of the stickers. They could be placed on Profiles of people mentioned on the Roger Williams Society website.

I think that you could also create a one name study focusing on a specific branch.

I think that would fit more as a personal category for yourself or under a One Name Study (ONS), since for one thing Roger Williams is unlikely to be rare, probably quite frequent.  A category only named Descendants of him would run afoul of all the other men of the same name who are unrelated.
