Matches

The large majority of Lita's DNA Matches at ancestry are through her paternal lines. This can likely attributed to the fact that many of her maternal ancestors were recent immigrants, such as her Great Grandmother Herta Baierlein Schenck who immigrated in 1947 from Bavaria, Germany and her Second Great Grandfather Magnus Eliassen Swee who arrived in the US at the Canadian border and crossed into Vermont before heading to South Dakota [2] in 1909 from Sør-Trøndelag, Norway.
Other immigrants include John Olson from Akershus, Norway, Rev Carl Schenck from Mecklenburg-Strelitz Germany, John Perrett and wife Sarah Saunders from England, Karen Eli from Børsa, Sør-Trøndelag, Norway, and Eli Ingebrigtsdatter Klefstad from Melhus, Sør-Trøndelag, Norway, most of whom settled in Wisconsin, South Dakota and even Illinois.

Hello,

During my attempts to locate the parents of my 4x great grandfather James T. Dailey, I found strong evidence that Pirthena Templeton Ferrell was his mother. He was born in West Finley PA in 1829-1830. He married Sophia Pond with whom he had 3 children. She died and he remarried another woman (I believe Rebecca Dixon). When James died in the civil war, his new wife abandoned his children so a family friend named Hannah Templeton came and picked them up and raised them. Hannah ended up taking the wife that abandoned James' kids to court to get his pension (I think that's what it's called) to use to take care of the kids. In the court documents, Pirthena testified on Hannah Templeton's behalf and stated she was James T. Dailey's mother! So I was so excited to finally find one of his parents, but I have been unable to find anymore information on her. She signed the court documents as Pirthena Ferrell so I am 95% sure this has to be the same Pirthena you are all looking for. I found these documents on Fold.com, but I no longer have access to the website. I'm sure they are still there if any of you have access. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Lita. I have my ancestors from Norway back to the 1400. I just haven't added them on Wikitree yet but I'm working on it. I will be sure to ask for your help if need be, and same goes to you. As I said I have a good tree of my Norwegian ancestors known.

Thanks Lita for your resources, encouragement, and actual work on the profiles of my ancestors. I'm taking it a little slow since I'm aware of how little I know. I'd be happy to see any comments about the work I've done since you visited my Akerhus ancestors' profiles. Thanks again!

Thanks, Lita!

Much of the information I received about my Norwegian ancestors came from a cousin's research that was handed out to family, but I've been working on finding the sources to confirm the information. They left Norway about 1868.

I'll look over the links you sent me!

Hi Lita,

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified.

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many decendants,coordination is essential. Thanks for joining the NORWAY Project.

Hey Lita,

I see that you mentioned adoption in your bio. By adding your branches to our shared tree, there may be an opportunity for someone to find you!

Adoptees: How to Set Up Your Profile is a WikiTree help page specifically designed for new members who indicate they are adoptees. It is also helpful for non-adopted members who have adoptees in their family tree. The page includes links to more resources, like our Adoption Angels Project, basic search techniques, information on DNA, etc.

Good luck!
