  • First-hand information. Entered by Donald Daniels at registration.

Donald Herbert Daniels was lived in Medford, Or until he was 4. In 1957 the family moved to Leavenworth, KS and lived on the grounds of the VA Center where his Dad worked. In 1960 his 3rd grade class was part of the 1st stage of the desegregation of the Leavenworth Public Schools. A black teacher was placed there and a select group of around 13 students and the teacher were housed in a former store room in the school. This gave them a unique opportunity to do things, especially art, that the other 3rd grade classes did not do, e.g. ceramics. He graduated from Leavenworth High School in 1970 and enrolled at Kansas State University. He had a 2s student deferment from the Viet Nam draft. In 1971 his birthday was number 16 in the draft lottery. He graduated from KSU in 1974 Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Mathematics. He was reclassified as 1A for the draft but his draft board had met their quotas and he was never drafted. He was employed as a computer programmer with IBM's Federal Systems Division in Owego, NY. In 1975 he married Nancy Knopp in Woodbine, Ks. In June of 1975 he stared employment as a computer programmer for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas in Topeka, KS. He remained there for 32+ years and took early retirement at age 55 as a Project Leader. He later worked as a data analyst for the Kansas State Employee Health PLan for 4 years.

Descendant of PGM migrant Rev. Thomas Hooker II.

Yes the how-tos were helpful. The learning curve would be a bit difficult for many.

Don, both of those two Jabez Lewes/Lewis profiles are nearly unsourced, but if you agree that they are the same person, they should be merged. The Barnstable vital records page that I linked on Lewes-54 is very possibly the best available source. It has his parents' names, his birth, his siblings' births, his marriage, and his child. And the records there consistently give his last name of Lewes, so Lewes-54 should be the destination profile for the merge. (We merge to the correct LNAB, not to the page that currently has the best sourced content. The content of the two profile pages can be combined, with judicious editing to remove duplications and garbage conten, as well as to write a coherent biography.) I can protect Lewes-54 to ensure the merge goes in that direction.

Don, I have Samuel Fuller as well, through his son Timothy Fuller 1670-1748

Samuel Fuller –1676 father-in-law of 4th cousin 8x removed

posted by Marsha (Cramer) Baker
There are so many Samuel Fullers among the descendants of Robert Fuller that it is hard to keep them straight. I believe you are descended from Edward Fuller-13 who is the brother of my ancestor Deacon Samuel Fuller Fuller- 11 . When Edward and his wife died sometime in the first winter Deacon Samuel took your Samuel into his home. Then when my 8xGGM Bridget Fuller nee Lee arrived in 1623 they had a son Samuel so there were 3 Samuels in the same household.

Hi Cousin Don....

Don and Marsha are 11th cousins once removed

Don Daniels and Marsha (Cramer) Baker are both descendants of Thomas Hooker II.

You were born in Oregon, so was I, I'm still an Oregonian.

I am a proud descendant of a Hooker. I have tried to read Rev. Hooker's theology books and they are very difficult to understand. I think you need to have a Calvinist background to read between the lines. Happy New Year, cuz.

Hello, Don,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

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.
