Brick Walls

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. Update Jan 16, 2020 Recently added profile Phebe Moffitt Arnold-14764, b. 1795, d. 1888 in Stephentown, New York. She married Claudius Moffitt. She was a sister to Joseph Hopkins Arnold; he was father to Mandana Arnold, who was the mother of Lucretia Arnold Morgan Davis in Cayuga, New York. More research needed.
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: [40], and also, FreeBDM, a volunteer UK records transcription site [41]

Ancestors Report

WikiTree Members: The Ancestors Report is generated each time you, or anyone, accesses your Profile page. It pulls your ancestral data from everything you have entered into your Family WikiTree, and displays the results as a percent of each generation that you have identified so far. It will only display the first 8 generations but that is still a very useful tool for showing where you need to concentrate your research. Feel free to copy and paste the entire series of code lines that follow, and place it at the bottom of your profile.

Hi Norm, per Spencer Mead, Moses Husted (abt.1705-) was the only child of Angell's second wife. Why did you change him to the first? I switched it back, but if you have a stronger source than Mead, let us know and add it to the profile.
posted by H Husted
Hi Heather, good catch! I did it, but I'm not exactly sure how he got linked incorrectly. I rely pretty heavily on Spencer. I created both of Angel's wives' profiles back in Dec 10 2017, based on Spencer's data.

I looked over the changes to Moses' profile. I actually don't see him linked to either "Mary" except in the bio text:

The correct source Data on his page was deleted Dec 2017 by Cynthia B: "Spencer P. Mead reports that Moses Husted was the son of Angel Husted, Jr. and his unknown second wife.<ref name="Mead Ye Hist">Mead, Spencer P. Ye Historie of ye Town of Greenwich, County of Fairfield and State of Connecticut with Genealogical Notes ... (New York: Knickerbocker, 1911) (Pages 581-89, citing p 589).</ref>"

Same source was added back Sept 2018 by Anonymous Winter. But Moses' profile still was not linked to a mother.

On 19 Dec 2018 I added a note to Mary#2 profile that she was the mother of Moses. But he was still not linked to her at that time.

Oddly, when I look over the changes to Mary#1 Unknown-399292 and Mary#2 Unknown-399294 I don't see either one ever being linked to the profile of the son Moses.

I think what happened is I just grabbed the wrong profile #.

Hello, Any interest in the descendants of Daniel Davis (1763-1825)  ? I'm working with a friend whose brick wall ancestor is Wilbur Morton Davis (abt.1825-1864) Wibur may be the great-grandson of Daniel Davis

best regards,


posted by Darryl Rowles
Hi Darryl,

I don't think I have anything of genealogical value on that particular (British) Davis Family, not related (as far as I can tell) to my own. We are from the (Welsh) Davis/Davy/Davies line. I have found some marriages between the two families* in the British colonies of Long Island, NY, but nothing for the descendants of Daniel (1763-1825), and no connections between the two Davis lines in the British Empire prior to 1600. I'll take a look at my older "paper" records nonetheless. Good luck!

  • for instance, Wilbur's grandson George married Rose Marshall; her gg grandfather Robinson Crockett's brother Daniel (1742-1800) married Mary Noyes; her grandmother Mary's brother Mark Whitney (1700-1760) married Tabitha Mellen; they are my ggggggg grandparents on my "Davis" side but that line doesn't join up with the Davis line until Carrie Wood (1870-1936) married Charles Willoughby Davis. So the links between the two Davis lines did happen, but very indirectly.

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,


Congratulations on making more than 100 contributions to WikiTree for the month of June!

We all appreciate your efforts to make our Shared Tree the best it can be.

Keep up the great work and THANK YOU!!

Lyon 881 is the Isaac Lyon I am directly descended from.....
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.

Hi Norm,

Congratulations on your Pre-1500 badge, Maria is impressed with your efforts.

Hello Norm,

RE ...the descendants of Fisher Whitney; it's actually his granddaughter Sophronia.... I have not ventured that far off my line, sorry but I can not be of any help, but I will keep an eye open. Sorry for delay in response. Richard E Beason

Hi Norm and thanks for your post on G2G.

Welcome to the UK, Scotland and Wales Projects. I've added your name to the members interests pages of each.

Good luck with your research.

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.
