Charles grew up in Montana, spending the school year in Helena and the summer months in West Yellowstone where his parents had a business. He obtained degrees in chemical engineering from Montana State University and later the University of Texas in Austin. He began his engineering career in Southern California, working for C. F. Braun for eight years. Then he brought his young family to Idaho, and worked at the Idaho National Laboratory. Now retired, he spends his time fishing the waters of Idaho, Montana and Yellowstone Park, working on his cabins in West Yellowstone, and doing research in a variety of areas.

If you're research goes better than you expect and you find that you will be adding pre-1700 profiles, a quick review of the project list linked in my earlier message is recommended. Even if you don't join project, the project page often have helpful hints about sources to check and/or avoid, special naming patterns, etc.
I look forward to seeing you in the branches,

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a Pre-1700 Project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Collaboration is essential because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants.
It looks like the Massachusetts Project would be a good fit based on your recent Marshall connection.
Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)

For some reason, you came back on my radar and I looked at your tree. If you are confident that Reuben came from Bertie, you are probably not related to Brinsley's line. We think that Solomon came from Bertie but if you are confident that Reuben is Irish, you can also rule out Solomon who DNA recently shows was English.

I noticed you uploaded a GEDCOM. Here's a link to a great step-by-step of the process including screenshots that you might find helpful.
The help pages give lots of information about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.
