Teresa Conant has English ancestors.

Teresa was born in Lorain, Ohio where her other other siblings, Henry Conant-856, Judy Conant-871, and Julie were born. She considered her childhood home the one at 331 Krotzer Avenue in Luckey, Ohio.[1] Her first pet was a dog named Sandy.


She dearly loved Sandy and Sandy was a major part of her childhood. Much of her care was entrusted to her beloved older sister, Judy.

Judy at 19
Judy also taught her the colors, numbers 1-10, beginning reading, prayers, and numerous other things. Judy read her bedtime stories and listened while she said her prayers.

Her brother, Henry, went off to a private military school, Howe Military Academy[2]

Howe Military Academy
shortly after Teresa entered school.

Her school was a brick building

Luckey Schoolhouse
which had a room for grades 1-12. The building was scheduled to be torn down this year. She went to school with the same 30 children till the 8th grade.
My Third Grade Class
She had most all of the childhood diseases and was one of the first groups to receive the then new "polio vaccine." One of the members of her class had polio.

She was part of a special group of children who took art classes at the Toledo Museum of Art. [3]

After she left her childhood home, she went to Toledo, Ohio where she stayed at the YWCA and obtained her first job in the bus station.

She then moved to an attic efficiency apartment in Cleveland, Ohio to be closer to her sister, Judy. There she worked for an engineering firm.

Teresa left Cleveland to marry her first husband, Wm. Paul Smith 19(?) Aug 1968. They began life together in Landover, Maryland.

Her first son, Paul, was born while she lived in Landover. She was the epitome of a new mother and everything about her son was "perfect." He never cried and used to let her sleep till noon--a great luxury.

Her second son, Ray, was born a little over a year later. He had been infected at birth with a severe intestinal virus while in the hospital. Even though he suffered from this virus for over a year, the following three years he was constantly sick due to his immune system being compromised. Fortunately, Teresa had a wonderful pediatrician, Dr. Wolf.

In (date) Teresa and her husband had a vicious and vitriolic divorce. After the divorce Teresa lived in Landover, Maryland and worked at various jobs. She met her second husband, Gene Hames-270, and they lived in a house they were renovating in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Unfortunately, this marriage was a "rebound" marriage and ended three years (?) later while they were living in Naples, Florida.

Teresa then moved back to the Washington, DC area. Her happiest time there was spent at George Washington University.

After her children graduated from Kennedy High Schoo,l [4] she lived a few more years in Silver Spring, Maryland and enjoyed very much spending time with her friends Charles and Lyliane Kramer, among many others. She still remains in close contact with almost all of these friends.

She had an opportunity to move to New York City and work as Assistant Editor for the publication Glasnost News & Review[5]. This is where she met the love of her life and third husband, Misha Kazachkov-1. They have been married for over 25 years, retired, and are now living in Massachusetts.

Teresa is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
I live on the North Shore of the Boston, Massachusetts area and have access to a 25 mile radius around the area.
I have an ancestry for the Conants going back to the 1500s in England [1] showing where I connect to the linage. On WikiTree I have only entered up to my grangfather, Carl Clinton's profile. I was hoping to continue adding my ancestors to till they connect with the larger tree and collaborate with someone who would work on the earlier Conant line.
Most of my family surnames come from England, e.g., CONANT, MANNING, NEWCOMER, RIPLEY, SEANOR, SUTTON, TOTMAN, WALTON and more. I would like to collaborate with others who are researching these names in England.

I have hundreds of VERY old family photos, including glass plates. Most are still in the process of being professionally scanned at extremely high resolution. Several are unidentified. I would like help in identifying and attaching the photos to individuals.
I am especially interested in England and Germany (KATZENBACH, KOSIER), as I have several family trees which go back to the middle ages.

Hi Teresa,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.

Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Profile Improvement Angels: Please note I am just a baby beginning here. I know my profiles are a mess, but I have signed the Honor Code and learned in my first week the word is: sources, Sources, SOURCES!

I also understand the need for proper style. However, there is just too much for me to absorb overnight, or even over a year! So please give me at least six months to gradually clean up my act here. 12 Jul UPDATE: I have been reformatting each and every one of my profile resources (some for almost the 20th time!). Currently I am beginning work on my grandparents. Hope to finish draft bios by the end of the week. I believe their descendants have at least a "minimal draft" profile.

Thanks so much for all you do!!
