Norman was born in New York, USA in 1954

Our American roots include many ancestors with Military records in the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, WW1 and WW2.

A number of my direct ancestors were part of the "Great Puritan Migration" from 1600-1680 and were the first pioneer settlers to establish the towns of

  • Hartford, Connecticut
  • Rye, New York
  • Warwick, Rhode Island
  • Gardiner's Island, New York
  • Italy Hollow, NY
  • Reed's Corners, Ontario County, NY
  • Brookhaven, Coram, Southaven, Mt. Sinai, Long Island [22] Elnathan Davis Profile lists many of his descendants and is a work in progress
  • Saybrook, Connecticut
  • Frontier towns after leaving New York in the early 1800's in Ohio, Iowa,

Many of my New York ancestors are interred in Canandaigua, NY at various cemeteries. There are associated branches of the family from Connecticut and Massachusetts there as well. [23]

Maffett-21 Frances Emma Maffett, 1832; I suspect that she is the daughter of Norman Moffitt, but have found nothing to prove that. He was possibly married to Phebe ____, and research into Phebe Moffitt in the geographical area of Frances Emma Maffett is very suggestive of that connection. But, no proof to date.
Werner-1562 Catherina Werner, 1837: records found to date indicate her parents Jacob Werner and possibly Catherina Engel, but no proof. The trail ends with them, so far.
Mitchel-419 Peter Mitchel, 1782: The name is so common in Scotland. There are more than one, married to Margaret. The notes for his profile are based on his daughter's records, and that's the end of the trail for Peter, so far.


A special note here to my relatives or others who may be following: For many years, family lore has held that one of my ancestors Adolphus Flint Flint-1961 was the son of an unknown Flint, who married to an Onondaga - or possible Canandaigua - tribal woman. My father spent a good deal of time researching this and found nothing to support the story, yet it persisted because nothing was found to refute it, either. Recent research, and the discovery of records not previously available in Ontario County, New York, have shown that the story is not true. The full story is at his profile page.

The Davis/Davies question: There are a number of Davis/Davies family interments in the Reed Corners Cemetery who do not appear to be related; they are descended of William P. Davies b.1789 in Wales, d. 11 May 1853 in Pennsylvania. It is his son Ezekial S. Davis (1818-1888) who establishes the Ontario County NY line of this family. I can find no familial connection to date but the coincidence of two Davis/Davies lines in such a remote and undeveloped part of New York is intriguing. The fact that William P. Davies is known to have come from Wales sometime after 1823, and the fact that our "New World" ancestor Fulke Davis/Davy also came from Wales, but around 1640, is especially intriguing, but to date the Welsh records have not provided a clue as to whether they are of the same family, or completely unrelated. There are living today a number of Davis/Davies/David families in and around Glamorgan, Wales - the place they may have both been born. An interesting place to start is here with a Glamorgan Davies family: [29], and also, FreeBDM [30]

Hi Norm,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Hi Norm. I created Isaac Lyon(4517) (or maybe I adopted him, I forget) mostly to distinguish him from the Isaac Lyon I am descended from. Lyon 4517 is something like my 12th cousin umpteen times removed, so I would be happy to pass the profile on to you if you wanted, and I knew how to do it.

We have a mutual ancestor in Robert Drury (50). I am Stewart 27807.

Thanks for performing the merge of Israel Parshall Wicks/Wickes, Norm. I usually loose data when trying to perform a merge, so I tend to want others to do it. I still wish Wikitree had an "Oops, I goofed" way to delete a profile. It would certainly be a lot easier.

Norm, have you run into any information on my ancestor Barnett Davis, married to Sophronia Vandeveer, Davis-45562. I believe I have his parents correct, but absolutely have had no luck finding a papertrail on them. Interestingly in 1799 his mother's, Elizabeth Hobbs family, lost at least 6 family members in Maryland and then my line of the family moved to Kentucky, then to Indiana 10 years later and settled in Illinois.
