Hello all;

My purpose for joining WikiTree is selfish, but I hope also beneficial for others. The reason I joined is because I want to fill in the missing branches of my family tree. I look forward to working with other committed members who are also looking for answers. Who were the people before us? What makes me unique and or what special traits have I been blessed with? I have Native American blood in my veins. My wife has royalty of Kings and Queens of England in her veins.

My ancestors fought in our Civil War, WWI, WWII, and the Korean war.

I grew up in Southern California, and just recently moved to Northern California. I love to golf and did so as a small boy to present. I am by no means a great athlete, but do enjoy playing sports and mixing it up with family and friends. I have lived in one place for most of my life, and do enjoy visiting with my buddies of some 50 years!

I have a wonderful wife of 35 years. She was the girl across the street. I have two fantastic children and have fallen in love with my two grand-children. Life has been a great journey so far, but I'm looking for so much more, and leaving a record for others to follow so they too will who know who they are and what makes them special in this world.

As far as who I am

  • I earned a BA in business administration from California State University Fullerton.
  • I have worked as a Buyer, Purchasing Manager, and Materials Manager for large non government organizations.

I have recently retired to enjoy the fruits of my labor.

  • I have a passion for finish carpentry and love working with my hands. I have built houses from the ground up and love HGTV. I am working on a fixer upper with a 75% rebuild..

I look forward to corresponding with all of you on our journey. If I can be of any assistance please feel free to contact me via this resource and or email. I hope the correspondence leads to joy and the realization of a full tree and beautiful life.

Regards; Kirt Spear Fetterling

The merge of Unknown-157969 and Herndon-294 in my thinking is not a clear merge. We have a Nicholas Jasper with a brother named John. John had so many kids and didn't mention one or that he had kids. Suky is a nikname and they were common on Wills. I thought Suky was short for Susan. There are no dates on Suky. John and Mary are my 6th gr grandparents. You can send this to JoAnnAllen and see if she wants this merge to happen. I'd love to have John's Will if that is his Will?

Kirt, you queried me in the summer of '17 regarding a DNA match. We could find nothing. I recently saw your similar query to Christopher Newton (Oct '18) who is related to me through my Henderson line. The Hendersons were early Virginians, but the line is mostly blank. Just passing on, in case you get a Eureka moment.

Kirt, I've took the new 23andme test and the raw file works only on's Genesis Beta website. So, I'm not able to match against your file. Can you upload it to the Genesis Beta site? Or look on 23andme's site?

Hi Kirt,

Saw your comment on Deb Cavel's, I had deleted & reentered information on GEDmatch which resulted in new numbers; which are not posted; this should clear up any issues. Thanks Connie

I thought it was automatic. I tested with FTDNA and you with another company. Is that the problem?

Hi cousin!

Apparently we're 20th cousins, yes distant, sharing Ferrers-311 as our 19th great grandfather.
