I am a journalist and amateur historian from California.

I tend to jump around a lot in my research, but I'm currently focusing on:

  • My matrilineal line, currently stuck on Margaret (Johnson) Mussulman Roush (b. 1827 in Cumberland County, Pa.; d. 1901 in Mercer County, Ohio).
  • Early Mercer County, Ohio settlers, especially the Wrights, Halls and Bonifields.
  • The Miller, Runser, Stumm and Loutzenhiser families of Hardin County, Ohio.
  • The Catheys, Snows, Porters and Andersons of Carroll County, Arkansas.
  • The Ensors of County Armagh, Ireland.

Note for those doing genetic genealogical research: My dad and I don't share DNA.

I'm slowly adding my American third branch ancestors starting with 2x-great-grandparents (I don't know the non-American records well enough to feel comfortable adding those lines; I won't be going any more recent for privacy's sake):

Jacob Cayton and Nancy Brock married twice; first, in 1816, IL; and second, in 1840, Missouri. Back in 2013, when my original gedcom was entered here; I thought they were two different persons. Sorry to not have corrected this sooner. Thank you!
Thank you for contacting me, ma'am! I only found out about my Bonifield hertiage several weeks ago. Mrs. Sarah Joanna (Goff) (Loughrey) Conn had an affair with a Mr. Knotts after the death of her first husband. Their union produced my illegitimate great-great grandfather, William George "Bill" White. He was legally adopted by a George William and Marcella (Mason) White, both of whom I am related to through my great-great grandmother, Frances Melvina "Fannie" (Auvil) Beavers.

It's been my hope that the Bonifield family has royal ancestry. Conn's paternal side doesn't seem to. The Order of the Crown of Charlemagne is an organization I've longed to belong to since my sixteenth--year. Unfortunately, I can't find a line which hasn't been disproven or unproven. Just absolutely vexing for me.

HI K I took a look at Bailey Lovin and found another William who lived in Tennessee born in late 1700's. That is most likely why that William was attached to him. He is however, the wrong William as you said.

I want to REALLY thank you for the note however because searching for that William helped me through a marriage I spotted to an Isbell to knock down a tremendous brick wall I have been banging on for 30 years. So, that a LOT! And I do mean a LOTTTTT!
