100 Profiles
Dave created 100 new profiles during the February 2021 USBH Connecting Challenge.

I'm the 4th great grandson of Joseph and Theresa Ebaugh, who arrived in America at the Port of Baltimore in 1834 and settled in Indiana. My Y-line is a pretty straight shot; I've known the sequence since I was a kid. I started formally studying my family's history around a decade ago. I completed 95% of my maternal domestic ancestry and much of my post-1830 paternal ancestry over the next several years the hard way - pouring over records. Four or five years ago I finally started using ancestry and discovered that the ancestry I wasn't aware of was quite a bit more extensive than I ever would have imagined. The key to my paternal line is the women. My grandmother, Helen Harbeson descends from 18th century Scotch-Irish immigrants. And the gold miner who married a Swede. Ethel (Worden) Ebaugh, Hattie (Deuel) Ebaugh, and Nancy (Applegate) Ebaugh, my 1st-3rd great grandmothers, all have colonial roots. My 4th great grandmother Theresa (Fridman) Ebaugh's living brothers and sister came to America with Theresa and Joseph, and have interesting stories of their own.

WikiTree Projects

US Black Heritage Project

Quakers Project

I'm (slowly!) studying members of the Sandcreek Monthly Meeting (later Driftwood) in Bartholomew County, Indiana.

Accessibility Angels

I'm on the Accessibility Angels Technology Advisors Team.

My Personal Projects

Not every project is being actively worked right now; none will ever be "complete" - there's always more to learn. Each link below leads to a description of the project with useful resources and a list of profiles belonging to it.

Ancestor Projects

As I hint at above, I conceptualize my ancestry as a stacked set of maternal lines, each terminating in a marriage with a man in my Y-line.

Ancestor Improvement Project

Improve the biographies of my ancestors with other profile managers, where necessary.

Descendant Projects

Other Projects

  • Boyle to Haughville - Tracing descendants of formally enslaved people in Boyle County, Kentucky, some of whom were enslaved by my ancestors. Many were involved in the Migration, ending up on the west side of Indianapolis.
  • Grafton, Iowa Families
  • Exploring Ebaugh families not descended from Joseph, John Jacob, Roman, or Reinhart.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Dave or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Dave:

Amazing work on Jack Johnson. Thank you!

P.S. The reason I was working on Jack at all was the bit about the car race. I wanted to drop that anecdote on, but the existing profile was very very short. So I added to it. :)

49 sources! 1700 words! Daaaaang ...

You outdid your self! :-O Have you ever read the book, "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie?" You start doing one thing and end up doing 15 others. It's my daily burden :-)
I made a link through the Pitts family that shows a new member Cynthia Mason is your third cousin. :-)

Hello, Thank you for linking me! I am new to this site and have my tree on Family Search. Nellie Pitts (one of your Great-Grandmothers) is the sister of my Great-Grandfather, John Daniel Pitts. I am on vacation now but will look at your tree closer when I get home. It looks like you have a lot of information that I dont have. John Daniel Pitts married Bessie Miller and her mother's line goes back to early Colonial America. It looks like several of your lines do as well.

Fleshing out the Pitts is pretty much permanently on my "Do Real Soon" list. :) I was surprised that the most recent Pitts of our line already on WikiTree was John J. (1754 - 1823). Given how many kids these people had there should be plenty of descendants adding their ancestors to the tree! I have a lot more info than I've put on WikiTree. We should definitely chat when you have the time All I had on John Daniel was 2 censuses and unsourced birth and death dates. Now I know his wife too (thank you)! And he went by John Daniel? I had Daniel John, because of he's 'Daniel J' on the 1910 census. Good to know he went by John Daniel. Our ggm Emma 'Tishey' Pitts was probably one of the toughest folks I figured out before I started using Ancestry. And to toot my horn a little bit most people online have John Luther's mother wrong. VERY interesting story there ...
