I am searching my direct maternal line. There is a genealogical controversy (how rare!) about my most distant maternal ancestor, Katherine UNKNOWN (1649-1690), and whether or not she was a daughter of Giles BRENT and Mary KITTAMAQUUND. See details at My mitochondrial DNA appears to confirm she was not. But I am not good at interpreting the results

Other researchers have come to the conclusion that she was Katherine FISHER,, an indentured servant to Robert Brooke, I tend to agree with this conclusion.

My maternal line is thus: Great Grandmother: Christine PERCY b. 1884 d.1912 LA

2xG Grandmother: Catherine B. DOHERTY b. 1840 d. 1907 LA

3xG Grandmother: Sarah B. COBB b. 1808 d. 1898 LA

4xG Grandmother: Sarah BINGAMAN b. 1788 d. 1858 LA

5xG Grandmother: Sarah "Sally" BRASHEAR b. 1760 MD d. aft 1825 LA

6xG Grandmother: Catherine Lucy BELT b. 1729 d. 1773

8xG Grandmother: Katherine MARSHAM b. 1672 d. 1712

9xG Grandmother: Katherine UNKNOWN (maybe BRENT, probably FISHER) b. 1672 d. 1690

Hi M,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
