I'm originally from Nestor, California, about a mile from the Mexican border. After college, I joined the Army and went to OCS at Ft. Benning. I was commissioned as a lieutenant and shortly afterwards met and married First Lieutenant Francisco Espaillat in 1986. We have three adult sons and a house full of dogs and friends.

Can you tell me more about the Covenanters tag? Morrison-11122 is buried in a Covenanter Cemetery in Ohio, but I do not know what the significance of the term is. Thanks!

Hi Jane,

I know that my Covenanter ancestors in Ohio migrated from South Carolina in the first decade of the 1800's. They had come to SC from Ulster, Ireland and were Scotch Irish. Here's a link to a short article about them:

The Wikipedia entry for Covenanters delves much more deeply into its European roots:

And thank you Jane for editing the Price family records, the more details the better!

Hello Margaret, I've been working on Price records lately and hope I've not added or altered anything with which you would disagree. Thanks for all you do for WikiTree. Jane

? Can you let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project and which team(s) you’d like to join. Please also let me know your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group or confirm you are already a member of the google group.

Many thanks,

Hi - it appears that we are third cousins, once removed. My grandmother on my maternal side, was Laura Good Noal. She died 15 years before I was born. Marilyn Lingenfelter James, San Diego
WOODS Margaret, I share Joseph Woods 1745-1835. Have your tried to find a probate for Isaac Woods 1783-1872.? Are you in touch with any of hte Iowa Woods cousins? IF any have done the Ydna? there are 3 sons of Joseph who have done DNA and they all match. We are looking for descendants of a Patrick Woods, 1715-1895. He lived in the part of Louisa Co that became Albemarle. his land was close to Nathan Woods who the family has rejected as a parent all though he had a son Joseph. Joseph's tombstone is in Columbia Cemetery, not Marsh Creek. He was buried in Marsh Creek and his grandsons moved him. Eager to be in touch with you. Nancy Stein I too had the same trouble as another who noted, couldn't get the comments and info to register. I joined.

Margaret, There was a George McDill with the 111th PA infantry during the civil war. I found his connection, added him in.

John McDill is a mystery though - from Cambria county PA, born in like 1815 (reportedly 45 at muster in, although 1860 census maked him look even older) to PA 2nd regiment cavalry, 59th volunteers, company I (EXACT same as Porter Johnson in my line). He died 2/1863, and was buried in Cambria, his widow Catharine A McDill received a pension from 2/1863 on.

John is a McDill, so related to all other McDills - but I cannot figure out how/where on the tree? I had assumed he was a tight relative and joined up with Porter Johnson, but that appears to be false as from Cambria county, not Crawford (where all my McDills sprang from).

Any idea where John fits in the tree?

Margaret - I can't believe it has been more than a year ago, when I submitted my first GEDCOM to wikitree. That initial GEDCOMPARE REPORT was overwhelming, but yesterday, I uploaded a much smaller GEDCOM to wikitree, and now I think I am ready to jump into this pool. Thank you for your initial welcome!
