Possible Wolcott auDNA match, showing 10.4 CM between Denise Lukens #T178742 and J.H. #H196926 on GEDMATCH as 11th cousins

Though our Ancestor Abigail Wolcott has three lines going back to Henry Wolcott b. 1578 who is the MCRA for the match on the GEDCOM Tree. Though obviously the dna segment would be from one of the three ancestors who was a descendant of Henry Wolcott, I guess it would take more matching of various other cousins to figure it out.

The matching line is already entered into WikiTree down to Dean Lloyd Pace (1925 - 2006) with whom the match is with his grandchild J.H.

Henry Wolcott Sr (1578 - 1655)

WikiTree User Pace Bonner would be related in this same area of the tree, he would be 10th cousins once removed to Denise Lukens and 10th cousins with J. Porter.

Also other Wolcott resources.

Angell DNA Match, with Denise Lukens T178742 on GEDMATCH with L.T. #963203 going back to John Angell (abt. 1646 - 1720)

Showing 13.5 CM as 8th cousins once removed, would be 8th cousins with J. Porter.

Need to find John Angell b. 1646 in Family Search and Geni and do a internet search on him, then add those sources to his profile and work down to:

"JOHN ANGELL b. October 18, 1646, Providence, Providence County, Rhode d. 27 July 1720, Providence,Providence,Rhode Island,U"

I started researching Solomon Israel pdf file and it mentioned a James

Davenport Israel who I found on Find A Grave:

And was trying to see if he was in WikiTree already.

His fathers Find A Grave: and his Geni profile:

I found his great grandfather: Nathaniel Lamplugh (1688 - 1742) and

Though there may be a merge issue if the Susannah Bezer who was Nathaniel's grandmother was really the daughter of Thomas Withers of England as listed in Geni. There is a match set for profiles and

Though all that is okay, really just need to keep checking to see if Israel family are in WikiTree.

And how does Solomon Wood Israel (1774 - bef. 1861) related to William Israel b 1782 and father of James Davenport Israel

Also check on Family Search tree.

William Herndon wife Frances White

on family search change his father to Edward Herndon

This matches Geni and WikiTree

Thomas Collins Herndon (1765 - aft. 1820)

his father William Herndon 1737

then on wikitree

William Herndon (abt. 1740 - abt. 1785) who we want married to Frances White.

1064 is added as an extra brother to William Herndon who is listed with wife Mary Bohannon which matches this family search profile

so really on family search we need to disconnect that wife and add her and children to a new husband that we make as a son for Edward Herndon to match WikiTree and Geni.

Then here on Wikitree we need to move and merge him to which has already been set as an unmerged match. it needs to disconnect the wrong parents from and add appropriate notes.

Then continue adding on the trail to

Margaret Jane Thomas

"Margaret Jane Porter is tough to research. Mostly dead ends. Based on several census records, she was born in Kentucky. She indicated that her mother was also born in Kentucky and that her father was born in Tennessee. In an interesting twist, Mary Louisa King's (wife of Lewis Breitenbucher) mother divorced Henry H King. Margaret Jane then married the same Henry King (4 Apr 1878 in Looking Glass, Douglas, Oregon). It appears they had no children. " Email from "Mike Thompson" &lt [email address removed] gt; Monday, January 11, 2021

Get her connected up to Breitenbucher. Two of her children married children of Lewis Breitenbucher and Mary Louisa King

Lewis B. can connect up to his father

Interesting DNA matches on MyHeritage, on my account.

With Steve Vernon, going back to Andrew Jackson Miner 1868, Tennessee. And back to his grandpa, Lewis Miner b Dec 24th, 19=807 in Hawkins, TN. Is this related to the Allen Miner DNA?

also have a match with Gregory Caldwell, which goes back to James A Caldwell, b. 1867 in Iowa.

Though the interesting part is his wife, Myrtle M Tickner, b. 1874 has a mother of Jane C Tickner, b 1833 and her parents are listed as Lemuel Miner and Concurrence Hurd.

Lemuel Miner, Jr Birth 1788 - Montville Twp,New London,Conneticut Death 1855 - Wayne, Henry, Iowa, United States

Was in Perrysburgh, Cattaraugus, New York, 1850

Concurrence Miner (born Hurd) Birth 1795 - Litchfield, Connecticut, United States Death 1864 - Olds, Henry, Iowa, United States

This page has notes for daughter, Charlotte S. MINER:

Her first husband Edgar Wharton Pierce

Their daughter was Mabel Frances Pierce, who's second husband was Eugene Charlson, who's mother was Hilda and in her obit. it says she had a sister named Mrs. Helen Pierce of Chigaco.

So the question is the husband of Helen related somehow to Edgar Wharton Pierce who would have been her nephews father in law?

Orman Allison Edeline (1911 - 1973)

Connects through his wife, up to her mother and then father and then to Lucinda Amelia Miner, daughter of Allen Miner and Sophie Temple.

Also go to son of Allen Miner, Leander H. Miner and add in his son, Cyrus William Miner and his son, Russell Canine Miner, then there is a dna match with his son on ancestry dna. See ancestry thrulines for Allen Miner.

Also here is a source for Jacob Miner, son of Allen. See page 21/369

Related to Mitchell, Iowa and the Miner family:,_Iowa_Genealogy

Amos' father was Josiah

They were in Mitchell Sept 1853.

Amos' brother, George Cummings was born in Indiana and became a farmer. He later moved to Union, Wisconsin, where he married Almira TEMPLE in 1851 and is where their first two children were born, Emma and William. About 1856 the family moved to Mitchell, Mitchell Iowa,

So the question is were Sophirina and Almira Temple related? Possibly cousins or maybe Almira was a neice?

Uf Sophorinias father was Ichabod who was Ebenezer? His brother or his first son? Is this Eb. The father of Almira?

They were both married in Union, Wi and both families later moved to Mitchell, Iowa. Though Soph had passed away in Wi.

Also Lewis Jennings Cummings, brother of Amos, married a daughter of Allen Miner abd S. Temple.

To do,

Her husband is on geni,

Could connect to him better better on geni through Doak family. Also check genis in law connection to him through Lukens and Quakers.


Also, Bo Diddly needs to be connected to world tree, possibly through a relative? Need to find and check out on family search.

Also check to see if this person's related,

Research and fix Mary (Stanley) Field (abt. 1620 - abt. 1670)

has her connected to two husbands who are like 5th cousins. but I think she only married Robert but perhaps the cousin Zachariah also married a Mary is why the profiles are confused.

More research needed.
