Followed Tags
Richard is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
Searching for the parents/siblings of Reuben Dalton from VA who married Elizabeth Shockley and settled in Grainger County/TN
Searching for siblings/parents of N S/Numa Smith Jordon/Jordan Esq. and Elizabeth Armstrong. He of MA? and she of Vermont. Married in Ohio and settled in Bernadotte/Fulton/IL
Searching for siblings/parents of John T Machen born about 1850 in Alabama. Our John T Machen married Rebecca P Whitehorn in Aug 1874 Bolivar/Hardeman/TN. There appears to be only one Machen family and that is the 1 in Alabama though I have not been able to find him in the many descendants.
Descendant of John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley; John Tilley and Joan Hurst; Degory Priest and Sarah Allerton; George Soule and Mary Bucket.
Many ancestors on my mother's side of the family: Bishop, Bridgman, Capen, Carr, French, Hannum, Hutchinson, Jackman, Langton, Nichols, Parker, Paul, Phillips, Pike, Prince, Putnam, Richmond, Silver, Strong, Thayer, Walker, Wildes, Willett -- to name a few
Allen, Archer, Beck, Coppock, Doughty, Greenaway, Hobson, Huff, Jones, Kinnison, Lindley, Medowe, Newton, Parke, Phillips, Ruddick, Short, Strickland
Searching for the parents/siblings of Francis Willett born 1634 Newbury/Essex/Ma married Martha Silver in Newbury/Essex/MA. Who were his parents/siblings? No records found yet of his birth. Was he actually born in Newbury? Or was he the immigrant ancsestor?

Hi Richard,

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.

First welcome to WikiTree, I saw that you just joined, on the 5th, this year!! Glad to have you aboard.

The reason I am writing is that I noticed you chose our Integrators Challenge for this month. Was you actually wanting to participate or was it in error?? Because what we do is try to find G2G questions that are a couple years old etc that ask for research of a particular family or ancestor, and then we create new profiles assisting them along the way.

For more information about our project please go here, it may help in understanding our work in the monthly Integrator challenges:

Thanks, Dorothy B. Integrator project
