Daughter of Robert Follett and Virginia DeValska Follett.

I have been researching my genealogy off and on since childhood when I found baby books for myself and my siblings that stated our great grandparents had immigrated to America from Germany or Poland (Prussia). This stimulated my imagination.

I am now at the stage of reviewing, correcting and updating my family tree data in preparation for a potential family genealogy book. And I enjoy collaborating on wikitree.

Please Note: I have an older gedcom that was uploaded to the Rootsweb WorldConnect Project called: FOLLETT, KISSEROW, DEVALSKA & DEVELSKI FAMILY GEDCOM. The url there is: - but this data is now "read only" and cannot be updated with my more recent research. The site may still provide useful information for some people. However, since Ancestry (who now owns that site) changed the format at WorldConnect, you must now use an awkward search function from that page to try to locate information.

In genealogy research, my Tip is: never forget to "Follow The Women"! There are often valuable clues to be found in records of wives, siblings, and related persons.

Biographical Notes

Although I have added a spouse to my profile, Eduardo and I were never formally married, but we lived together for more than 12 years. His family were really part of my family during and after that time. And I would like to add their profiles to this global family tree. So adding him as a spouse seems to be a logical connecting point on this tree, considering there is no present option to add a "common law" spouse. We had no children together, but he had a child from a previous relationship.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Bonnie or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Bonnie Follett: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup J1b1a1e, FTDNA kit #921506
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Bonnie:

Thank you, Bonnie, for adding the Find a Grave information for John Sheridan Mahon. Never thought of that when I entered him in WikiTree. Being new to this platform is sometimes overwhelming but a wonderful source!

Thank you.

Thanks Bonnie, for working on the merge of James Barton Follett and Mary Adeline Peck. I really appreciate all that you have found out about my branch of the Follett family tree.


Bonnie, thanks for your edits to Joseph Follett. I had a couple of family members as well, and have added them.

Bonnie, thanks the updates on Obadiah Hayes. Wondering if this an ancestor of yours? My Hayes kin were in Rhode Island and Connecticut about the same time. I have to dig deeper to see if there is a connection..

I appreciate all your efforts to add details here, there and everywhere!


posted by Patrick Hayes
Hi Patrick - The Hayes family connection is through my grandmother-in-law Katherine Wheelock Bristol Follett. Her mother was a Hayes and she told so many stories of her family, I wanted to try to do some work on them. Glad it's appreciated!

Thanks Lora! Keep in mind that if any of the image files that were on your external files list are worth sharing, you can always add the images under the image tab on the profile.

Thank you for the great Job you did on Oscar's biography It would have taken me 2 days and it wouldn't have been anywhere as good. I'm an idiot and have been asking the wrong question I know that Beman's parents are John D Follett and Rachel Fodder based on marriage and death certificates for their son John in North Adams Ma.. I just added them to WikiTree. The real question is where are they prior to 1855?

Thanks for the sources for William Webb Follett. He's the product of something else I was doing so hasn't yet had the attention he deserves.

I should add that I am a descendent of Robert Follett through his son Benjamin.


Hi Bonnie,

Thank you for the various edits on the Follett lineage. I have just been trying to enter my direct lineage into Wikitree to connect with other family researchers. Happy to have your edits and sources! I will add the rest of my sources soon.

Hi Bonnie,

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a Pre-1700 Project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Collaboration is essential because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants.

It looks like German Roots would be a good fit with the tag you entered. Adding the tag German_Roots will help you get updates about activity for that project.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)
