Creating a Book on our Ancestors

I want my relatives and descendants to know what wonderful ancestors they have. Making a whole book of them all is too much to contemplate. I have started by making small booklets of specific immigrants and their families. Here is a link to a G2G discussion where members discuss their efforts and results on making a book of ancestors. Do you want to make a book on your ancestors?.
Here is a free page with some links to sources I've found useful. How to Put Together a Book of Your Ancestors

Our Ancestors Made History

History is the sum of actions by our ancestors - the explorers, immigrants, Colonists, soldiers, pioneers, and farmers who plowed and planted, built and settled this vast country. Here's a sampling of our ancestors' biographies.

1776 - Revolutionary War

  • Johann Philipp Dellinger [DAR Patriot number is A207928] was in his seventieth year when the Revolution began in 1776. On 4 October 1783, the Morgan District Board of Auditors issued a voucher for £9.9.0 to Phillip Dellinger reimbursing him for service to the War effort. Philipp was accepted in August 2011 as a DAR Patriot. His contribution was not for active service.
  • Heinrich Dellinger (DAR No. A088225) served active military duty in addition to supplying provisions to the Patriot cause. He was a son of the above Johann Philipp Dellinger.
  • Jacob Harris - 18 March, 1777, Jacob fought at the Battle of Quinton's Bridge, where he was horribly wounded and left on the field for dead by the enemy. He slowly recovered and lived to old age.

1776 - Battle of King's Mountain

The Battle of King's Mountain was a turning point in the American Revolution. If the colonists had lost the battle, the two armies of Britain would have completed their pincer movement and forestalled any further rebellion. Joshua Sherrill, his father Capt. William Sherrill, and Burt Moore all fought under Col. John Sevier on October 7, 1780, at Kings Mountain, North Carolina.
Here is a sample of the "Relationship Finder" on our "Family Tree and Tools" page
April is the daughter of Kenneth A. Dellinger.
Kenneth is the son of Charles A. Dellinger.
Charles is the son of Elizabeth E. Anderson.
Elizabeth is the daughter of Joshua G. Anderson.
Joshua is the son of Betsy Moore.
Betsy is the daughter of Burt Moore.
Burt, therefore, is the fourth great grandfather of April.
  • James Litton - private in the North Carolina Revolutionary Army. Circumstantial evidence indicates he may have been in the Battle of King's Mountain. He lived in the Piedmont area from which most of the King's Mountain soldiers came. He was probably acquainted with the Sherrills who fought at King's Mountain - his son married into their family.

Biography

I was born at the end of The Oregon Trail, at the end of WWII - two events which remain strong influences in my life.

My father joined the Navy during the war, and after being trained in electronics was shipped to the South Pacific, where he was a radioman in a two-person airplane, a T-34, which patrolled the ocean around New Caledonia.

After the war ended, my father engaged his new opportunities for a career in electronics. In such a dynamic growth industry, opportunity often meant moving to a new city, and I literally saw the United States from one side to the other and back as I was growing up.

I soon realized that my friends enjoyed extended family relationships and knew their grandparents. All but one of my grandparents were deceased by the time I was born. My curiosity about who they were grew with the passing years.

Meanwhile, the age of television and the Hollywood Western blossomed. I watched entranced as Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger, Annie Oakley and other characters made the West safe from the bad guys. I loved the Cisco Kid and Calamity Jane. My favorite shows were Wagon Train and Rawhide. Do you remember the Rawhide theme song? "Roll 'em, Roll 'em Roll em - keep those doggies rolling, roll 'em - roll 'em - roll em - Rawhide!"

Little did I know then that my own great-grandfather Barchus came over the Oregon Trail in a covered wagon in 1864; my great-great grandmother Bacon also was on that trip. My Welch great-great-great grandparents Evans/Toone traversed the Oregon Trail in 1852, bringing with them their newly married daughter and her husband, and a widowed son-in-law and grand-baby.

Those discoveries and more came into my life because some young men decided to get high and go for a joy ride. I thought when they crashed their car into ours that my life was ruined, but the long recovery simply meant I'd have time for working on my family tree - something I might never have done otherwise. That is how, for me, what had been an interesting hobby became a passionate vocation.

April, just connected us to an interesting Cooper cousin: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cooper-16726

Nice to hear from a cousin -- as you probably can tell I'm new to this wiki project and I don't really understand it very well. For example, I don't know how much information is proper for posting on a person's profile page.

I'm not even sure if that terminology is correct. So thanks for the offer to turn over management of Francis Test's profile over to me but I don't feel up to speed yet to know exactly what or how a manager is to manage. For example, I have quite a bit of information on my own website about John Test -- Is is alright to include a link to one's own site or is that too much self-promotion? Running out of characters.

I think I'll spend most of the evening looking at your blog and checking out the Magna Carta project and other projects on this site.

Thank you for the page on Samuel Bacon. You have done a fantastic job. The biography is a model for everyone to emulate but your references and links to the sources showed me that I had no information about this family. I had known about the sources you link to but I never looked at them closely.

Samuel is the grandfather of Elizabeth Bacon who married one of my ancestors, viz., Francis Test. So, this is really meaningful to me. Thank you again.

This page on Samuel Bacon reflects really professional work and so you probably are familiar with the marriage certificate record of Francis Test and Elizabeth Bacon. There are a couple of siblings and a cousin who signed that certificate. Link: http://testfamilygenealogy.net/Narratives/Branches/frame.html

I have a copy of Dorset Pilgrims on semi permanent loan from the library, no-one else seems to want it.

For the social and religious history of Dorchester itself , I would recommend Fire from Heaven by David Underdown. https://yalebooks.yale.edu/book/9780300059908/fire-heaven .It mentions but doesn't focus on the emigrants. I live just outside Dorchester and so have good access to the records office and the museum archives, hence my interest.

I try, to keep tabs on 'my 'Dorchester (England) emigrants though I think this is the only one I'm PM for. I'm related to none.

I think that there is a possibility that Henry was the son of a Rev. Henry Smith and apprenticed as a child in Dorchester to a wealthy Mercer. Who the Rev. Henry Smith was, I haven't a clue.

April, I will remove those 3 images on Brewster-4 pronto! Thanks for what you do at WikiTree. I look at some of your work and I am so happy we have you here.

April, take a quick look at my comments on https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wood-981 -- we might want to merge both duplicates into either an Unknown or wouldn't it be nice if I can find her true LNAB. I have researched other Quaker Woods in this area so perhaps I can connect them. I'm related to myself so many times, lol. The Salem MM records are digitized but very hard to read.

Hi, April,

I do not know why George Langton could be named Sr. My grandfather was Jacob Daniel Langdon. It seems the name change came with George's son, John. My cousin, Robert Langdon, did the DNA test. Have you looked up the lostlangton website?

Thank you April for all your work on George Langton. I admit I had hit a brick wall and you breached it.
