The biography for Donnita Clem:

Most all of my lines date to Colonial or pre-Colonial America
I am a descendant of
Jemima Crockett and Adam Clem of AL.
My direct family lines are:

Clem, Crockett of Burke county, NC, Madison County AL and Limestone county AL.
Shelton, Munday's of VA, NC and TN.,
Rikard's of SC AL,
Smith and Taylors of Franklin county AL.
Hays, and Brewer of VA, NC and TN.,
Hampton, Albert and DeLones of TN, NC.
Cooper, Clem, DeLones of Northeast AR, TN, AL, NC, SC

My Arkansas Coopers:
Choctaws removed from their Lands/Homes during Forced Removals of 1830s, who settled in AR.

I am from a very long line of US Soldiers.

My grandfather to my 7xGreat Grandfathers, serving in the
American Revolutionary War down to WWI and WWII.
Almost all my grt grt granfathers served in the US Civil War, CSA. And POWs
from Pvt to 1st Lt.

Magna Carta Barons
Early and Pre-Colonial America
Lords, Knyghts, and Royals

And my Maternal Grandfather and Uncle were Outlaw Moonshiners

One of my Grandmother's people even told stories of FRANK JAMES sleeping in their barn, and little did they know he had robbed a paymaster and was hiding out for the night
Until after he left

It has been an interesting and long journey into my
Family's links into the past

I have been taking notes since the 1990s.
Vikings, Dukes, Kings, Queens,
Native Americans
Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw Nations
And the Great Sioux Nation

Tenplars, Rebels, Revolutionist, to homesteaders and hard working poor cotton farm labor in the Arkansas Cottonfields.

Wyatt's Rebellion
(Sir Thomas Wyatt)

Merovingians, Carolingians
And many more!

Early immigration to the mysterious New World
In the 1600 and 1700s
Uncovering several ancestors who
Fought in the Revolutionary War
The War of 1812,
Venturing from Virginia into North and
South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama,
Into early Tennessee
Venturing the Wilderness Trail
With Mr Daniel Boone
Part of the early Westward migrations
Into new territory.

Numerous taking up arms again
Brothers and Fathers together
And against one another in the
Civil War.
To recent past Ancestors in WWII
And Vietnam

I never imagined that 20 years ago
I would uncover so many links to so
Interesting events and people.

Who knew I would find links relating me to George Washington? And realizing the Native American saying:
Mitakuye Oyate
"We are all related"
Would have a huge meaning

I look forward to uncovering more
Leaves and branches in my tree
Learning "Who I Am and "Where I Come From"

And how We All Relate to One Another
All Over The World

Hi Donnita.

I just joined WikiTree today, so I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. But there seems to be an error on the profile for Baroness Margaret (Clare) de Badlesmere. The profile indicates that she was married 3 times. But I understand she was married only twice (to Umfraville & to Badlesmere). Therefore, I think the statement "Wife of William (Montfichet) De Montifex — married [date unknown] [location unknown]" is incorrect. This also means that she was not the mother of "Mary M. (Montifex) Drummond", as reported on the site. How can this be corrected? Thanks HLT

Donnita -

Thank you for merging Gilbert, Richard, and Amice.

This is in reply to your message on my page re: Crispin Eli Shelton. Are you thinking we need to merge duplicate profiles? I thought you may have been saying you have people in your tree who may be the same family, but I don't know how to answer that question or what action to take.

After 20 years, still trying to locate.documentation on Jemima Crockett and Adam.Clem's parents.
He does not appear to be the son of Detrick "Teter" Clem or Johann Davidt (David Clem) of VA (from Ittlingen, German).

I have researched this.line of Clem/Klemm at.length and found NO connections.
Some have Adam's birth listed as 1765 St Pauls Parish, Georgia Territories (possible his parents are listed in Parish Records?)
Other show him born in NC
Jemima is even more elusive!!
I DO know that Jemima and Adam are the beginnings of a LARGE and LONG line of Descendants!!!
I will keep searching!!
