DNA match with Julia Grundfast

I think her parents may be

Leanne Joan Smith and Matthew Grundfast of PA.

And that the mother of Leanne Joan Smith would be

Joan Volkert, who is half second cousins with GPA Luke and also a DNA Match.

Though that is just a guess, another possibly connection is via ancestry thrulines match,

"I was doing some more research here on 23andMe and I was cross referencing my Ancestry Thrulines matches to see if any of them are also in 23andMe. I was looking at my Thrulines report for ancestor Margaret Young and her daughter Hannah E Simon 1857-1925 and it looks like she may be our common ancestor. Hanna E Simon was the mother of my great grandmother Mabel Blanch Gettz who lived in Philadelphia. Her sister was Martha Simon Gettz 1887-1968 who was the mother of Rees Price Hagy 1917-2004. His daughter Marilyn Michele Hagy is listed as the parent of ancestry member, Cherie Cortese who my mom has a large dna match with on ancestry, 155cm over 7 segments. That is a good size match."

Add sources for: Reese Price Hagy

Hagys Mill is a photograph by Bill Cannon which was uploaded on May 1st, 2010. "Leanne Grundfast: Hi Bill, This is my families old mill. Jacob Hagy started the paper mill in 1769 then gave it to his son William to run. I love the picture and will get one for myself!"

"In January, 1758, Robins bought an adjoining tract, with a house and the following June he, with others, “Inhabitants on both Sides of the River Schuylkill,” presented a petition to the Court to get a road built. It set forth: “That your Petitioner hath built a Convenient Saw Mill and Paper Mill on a Stream of Water at Lower Merion and that there is no Road to or from the Said Mills, but what is altogether on Sufferance. May it therefore please the Honourable (sic) justices to take your Petitioners Case into Consideration and grant that they may have a road from Said Mills to the Conestogoe (sic) Road and also another Road from Said Mills over Schuylkill to Norriton Road.”

According to an original draft, which is included in the Norris manuscripts possessed by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, at the September session of the court this road was approved. It was known as “Christopher Robins Mill Road” until 1769, when its proprietor sold the mill to Jacob Hagy, a paper-maker from Whitemarsh. The highway then became “Hagy’s Ford.

Jacob Hagy evidently placed his son William in charge of the mill on Mill Creek, and William evidently became a man prominence in the township. He serving in several township offices, representing his district in the Legislature. In his will, made in 1832, he styles himself “a gentleman.” Forty years later, members of the family still held an interest in the paper on Mill Creek, with part of the original plantation."


Hans Jacob “Jacob Hagy” Hage Hans Jacob Hage, born in 1721, was a Swiss paper maker who arrived in 1751 at Philadelphia on the ship "Phoenix." A year later, he purchased a paper mill in Miquon on Trout Run Creek from Anthony Newhouse. Paper was made by hand, one sheet at a time. Benjamin Franklin was a customer, and the Bill of Rights is said to have been written on paper from Hagy's Mill.

I’m Glenda. Anna Margaretta Johnsdauter is my Great great grandmother, this confirmed through DNA matches. The Bergs are cousins. It looks like the Bergs migrated to Minnisota about the time of my family line and then connected through marriage. I’m not seeing Ida Berg as born or died in Minnisota. Do I have the right family line? Thanks for looking at this for me. Glenda

James "Old Jim" Mullins

James "Harelip Jim" Mullins

Mahala (Collins) Mullins

John Varney

Last name: Mullins The first is as an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic "O'Maolain", a byname which translates as "the descendant of the tonsured one", indicating perhaps a devotee or follower of an unspecified saint. Alternatively, the byname may refer simply to one who looked like a monk or who had monkish qualities. The second source is Anglo-Norman: Mullins in this instance being a development of the French "moulin", meaning "mill", and denoting one who was resident at such a place.

Here is how to connect,

Add in his mother Ruey, then her mother Ella and her father Jacob Browning. Then his mother is Eleanor who is I'm wikitree at

Eleanor Neeltje (Van Etten) Cramer (1784 - 1850)

Needs to be connected to world tree, seems like his ancestor

Samuel Jeremiah Parsels (1794 - 1876)

Should be able to be found in Family Search.

Connecting Unconnected Profiles to World Tree:

Mary Mechilde Cowig OSD (1875 - 1927)

Mary Mechtilde Cowig OSD 1875 – 22 April 1927

I found a path to connect her, here are the steps.

So go to her Sisters profile, already in Wikitree,

Annie Clara (Cowig) Corbett

Enter into Wikitree her son William Edward Corbett Jr,

Add in his wife and then thier daughter:

Mickell Ann Corbett 20 May 1935 – 22 February 2000

Then back to her mother, Helen Ann Hechtman and add in her parents

Albert Alfred Hechtman 20 November 1889 – 16 January 1972

Bonita Phoebe Maney 1893 – 8 August 1983

Then add in Bonita's parents to Wikitree,

John Joseph Maney

and Annie Agnes Ridge

Then add in John Joseph Maney's parents

John Franz Maney Sr

and Phillipina Blemns

Then we are going to add in their daughter,

Rose L Maney

and her husband James Albert Fee

Then add to Wikitree thier son

James Alger Fee

and his wife Frances Louisa Waldo

Then add in their daughter Frances Louise Fee

and her husband George Conery Martin

and then their son, John Jared Martin

Then back to his fathers profile and add in the father of George Conery Martin as

Jared Owen Martin

Add his father, James Jared Martin

and his father John Martin III

Then add in his mother, Elizabeth Allen

add in her father, John Allen

Who in theory is the son of Ursula Keene Withers who is in Wikitree

Ursula Keene (Withers) Allen (abt. 1705 - abt. 1789)

Though looking at the profile for Ursula Keene Withers on Family Search it has three sons named John Allen listed so there may be a in correct connection here.


John Allen 1725-1800 John Allen 1731-1789 John Withers Allen 1746-1843

More research need to see if the John Allen who's wife is Jane Beatty and who are the parents of Elizebeth Allen who marrried John Martin Jr is really the son of Ursula.

Another route tied in with the above:

Go back to Phillipina Blemns and add in her daughter

Phoebe Magdalen Maney

and her husband. Then add in their daughter Guenndolyn Phyllis Snyder

and her husband Darrell Joseph Harvey.

Then add in Darrell's ancestors, add in his father

Joseph Walter Harvey and his father George Washington Harvey and his fathe Samuel Thornton Yardley Harvey and his father Joseph Harvey and then his mother

Mary Yeardley

Then add in her father, Richard Yeardley

Then his mother is Ann Van Zant

Who in Famiyl Search is listed as the daughter of Cornelius VanZandt

Who is in Wikitree at

Cornelius Vansant (1751 - 1816)

Here is his Geni page,

Though more research needed to make sure this is a good connection.

Is Ann Van Zant ( who is the mother of Richard Yeardley really the daughter of Cornelius VanZandt?

Research more,

Andreas Olai Hesselius

Okay so start at

Olof (Olofsson) Holm (1621 - 1692)

Add in his father Olof Hansson who is in Geni. Then his father is listed as Hans Olofsson who should match this Family Search:

Hans Olofsson about 1546 – 1575

Then Hans brother is Nicolaus Olai Bothniensis,

WikiTree contributors, "Nicolaus Olai Bothniensis (1555-1600)," WikiTree: The Free Family Tree, ( : accessed 27 March 2022).

Nicolaus Olai Bothniensis about 1550 – 18 May 1600

Nicolaus Olai Bothniensis Born: Långnäs, Piteå, Landsfsg, Sweden

Then your at

Nicolaus Olai Bothniensis

We need to add in his son,

Olaus Nicolai Stiernman

Olaus Nicolai Bothniensis Stiernman 10 August 1598 – 1 September 1676

Then his daughter is Elisabet Stiernman who needs to be added to Wikitree

Elisabeth Stiernman about 1648

Then her daughter is Elisabet Schultin who is in Wikitree, Elisabet Schultin (abt. 1661 - 1698)

Her mother is in Family Search, though daughter Elisabet Schultin is not listed, only two children are, Margaretha Schultin and Anna Schultin.

Then from Elisabet Schultin, her husband is Johan Johan Kolmodin who's second wife was Beata Hesselia who was the daughter of Andrea Olai Hesselius. These people are already in Wikitree though I should add Family Search and Geni links to each profile on Wikitree.

Andreas Olai Hesselius

Andreas Olai Hesselius (bef. 1644 - bef. 1700)

Also to research,

Louis de Geer (bef. 1587 - 1652)

Seems like an example of a Crypto Jewish / Lutheran who moved to Sweden in the 1600s.

Louis De Geer (17 November 1587 – 19 June 1652) was a Dutch-Swedish entrepreneur, banker, industrialist and slave trader, who was part of the prominent De Geer family.

Also, for my ancestor on the Granstrom/Berglund side,

Brita Persdotter ancestors descendants 1741 - 27 Jan 1814 Åbyn, Skellefteå lfs, Västerbotten, Sweden

There are a lot of ancestors in Family Search to add still,

Here is one route,

Start with Brita Persdotter,

add in her parents, Pehr and Margreta,

then add in her mothers parents, Jon and Brita,

Then add in Jon Mattson parents,

Mathias Pehrsson Brav and Sissla Christiansdotter

Dordie Nilsdotter

Dordie Nilsdotter (1573 - 1640)

Then also, we need to connect up to

Her mothers and then her mother Brita Christina Olofsdotter

then add in her parents, Olof Olofsson and Anna Pehrsdotter.

Then add in Olof's father Olof Olofsson and then his wife Marta Persdotter.

So an interesting DNA match. Possibly related to the Alen Miner family.

I was researching on MyHeritage when I came across a match with G. Caldwell that goes back to a surname Miner.

He has an ancestor who is his g g great grandfather named Lemuel Miner. His father was Lemuel also and before 1790 the name was spelled Maynard and his parents were George Maynard b 1715 and Martha Comstock.

Lemuel Miner Sr 1751–1841

I don't see him on Geni or Wikitree. More research needed of course.

There was a son of Lemuel Jr who was named Greatus Valerus Miner 1831-1918,

Matching Geni profile:

Gratus Sylas Miner

Though this has his father named as Samuel Miner. I guess Lemuel and Samuel are similar names.

Descendants of Chief BLACK FISH (1725-1779)

Brigadier General Andrew Lewis (Continental Army)

Shawnees In 1648, the French called them Ouchaouanag, similar to the Shawnee /ša:wanwa/ meaning 'people of the south'. (634). Before that time, they may have been part of the Fort Ancient complex, a mound-building, pre-contact culture living along the Ohio River valley. The people moved extensively throughout the present-day Eastern, Southern, and lower mid-west United States. This Algonquian-speaking people combined hunting and agriculture, gathered some of their food, and after European contact, were heavily influenced by the fur trade.

Colonel Lewis, A Shawnee Chief

John Lewis III (1669 - 1725) Councilor Lewis was perhaps the wealthiest Virginian of his day and certainly no contemporary Virginian was of higher standing.

Colonel Lewis, or Quatawapea (The man on the water who sinks and rises again), was a Shawnee from the tall grass country of the Pickaway Plains.

Samuel Ball UEL (1765 - 1845)

The Black Settlers of “Treasure Oak Island” The Primary Generation

Samuel Ball's neices father in law was Elnathan Haskell Jr. (1755 - 1825):

John was born in 1760 to Elias Ball and Elizabeth Harleston. He passed away in 1817. He is buried in Strawberry Chapel Cemetery, Berkeley County, S.C. In the late 1730’s, Elias Ball Sr moved to town and left the management of his estate to sons Elias (“Second Elias,” 1709-1786) and John Coming Ball (1714-1764). John Coming developed Hyde Park Plantation, purchased in March 1740, while Second Elias remained at Comingtee alone. "Second Elias" (1709-1786) died 8 Aug 1786 at Kensington. In his will he left to son John Coming Ball (1760-1817) Kensington and Hyde Park plantations.

John Coming Ball (1760 - 1817)

So my question is are Samuel Ball UEL (1765 - 1845)'s parents really known and is he really a full brother to John Coming Ball (1760 - 1817)?

It says on Samuel Ball's profile, ""In the 167 years between 1698 and 1865, the Ball family owned more than twenty rice plantations in Lowcountry South Carolina and enslaved nearly 4,000 Africans and African Americans."[1] The correct "Elias" as the holder of Samuel could be "Second Elias". A look at the information from LowCountry Africana doesn't show information as far back as Second Elias, thought that information may not have been transcribed at this time. Since there were over 600 enslaved when Second Elias passed away looking for Schedules would hopefully shed light on Samuel Ball's origins and holder."

So really his parents are not known.

PROVIDENCE MOUNTS (MOUNTZ) JR., Dec. 30, 1758 - May 16, 1813. Served from Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania on the Crawford Expedition of 1782. Helped lay out the town of West Liberty. His father was Lieutenant Colonel Providence Mounts of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Marker location - Foreman-Mounts Cemetery (Hubert Bond Farm, Old Dixon Farm.)

Ebenezer Stevens "John Austin Stevens wrote an essay on his father’s life, found in the Boston Public Archives, which included a recollection “that none of the Boston Tea Party members dressed up as Native Americans but were covered in blankets and welded hatchets.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts to Ebenezer Stevens and Elizabeth Weld on August 22, 1752, Ebenezer Stevens started his livelihood in mechanical pursuits, and later became an accomplished artillery man.

Stevens was a direct descendant of Erasmus Stevens, founder of the New North Church in Boston. He was known to be a member of the Sons of Liberty, and a participant in the Boston Tea Party. He served alongside Paul Revere and Thomas Crafts, members of Paddocks Artillery Company, under the leadership of Jabez Hatch in Boston. After 1774, Stevens moved to Rhode Island to serve his country, where he married his first wife, Rebecca Hodgsdon, on October 11, 1774."

Col. Jabez Hatch 17 February 1737–16 July 1802

Ebenezer Stevens An Untold Story of an American Revolutionary (1751-1823) He went on to become an artillery officer and later commander in the Revolutionary War, witnessing and contributing to some of the most significant military events of the war such as the Battle of Bunker Hill, the surrender of the British General Burgoyne at Saratoga, and the siege of Yorktown.

Surrender of General Burgoyne "The scene of the surrender of the British General John Burgoyne at Saratoga, on October 17, 1777, was a turning point in the American Revolutionary War that prevented the British from dividing New England from the rest of the colonies. The central figure is the American General Horatio Gates, who refused to take the sword offered by General Burgoyne, and, treating him as a gentleman, invites him into his tent. All of the figures in the scene are portraits of specific officers. Trumbull planned this outdoor scene to contrast with the Declaration of Independence beside it. John Trumbull (1756–1843) was born in Connecticut, the son of the governor. After graduating from Harvard University, he served in the Continental Army under General Washington. He studied painting with Benjamin West in London and focused on history painting."

Key to the painting:

Daniel Morgan

Col. Elnathan Haskell Jr. (1755 - 1825) Elnathan was a major of artillery in the Continental Army, and an aide to George Washington. Haskell appears in the Trumbull painting of "Burgoyne's Surrender" which is preserved in the Capitol at Washington. He served with the Continental Army throughout the War participating in most of the battles of the Revolution.

23andMe match with Roy Verne Van Buskirk. Looks like he recently passed away in 2020.

Here is his Family Search page:

Looks like his fifth cousin also passed away in 2020, Roy Paul Van Buskirk

Their common ancestor is Joseph Ashton Van Buskirk 1751-1821

On Family Search it has both of them and myself going back to:

Joris Janssen Rapalje (1604-1662).

The Van Buskirk has Y-DNA of N-M178 as tested via 23andMe. A very interesting y dna, "The mutations that define the subclade N-M46[Phylogenetics 2] are M46/Tat and P105. This is the most frequent subclade of N. It probably arose in a Northeast Asian population, because the oldest ancient samples comply with this genetic profile. [55] [56] N has experienced serial bottlenecks in Siberia and secondary expansions in eastern Europe (Rootsi et al. 2006). Haplogroup N-M46 is approximately 14,000 years old."

DNA match is on CH 3 with Roy.

So on Family Search, there is Theodore Roosevelt Carter,

Mother of Susan Carter,

Who shows a connection via the Grayson family, but looks like there were some merges in Family Search with the profile of William S Grayson and that he was merged or attached to the wrong parents.

So need to check out the data on Family Search for William S Grayson,

Here is his WikiTree page,

See I think on FS they changed it so his uncle is listed as his father.

On FS the connection to T.R. Carter is going back to Raleigh Croshaw, Raleigh Croshaw Esquire (abt. 1580 - bef. 1624)

On WikiTree R. Croshaw is the great grandfather of James Walker ( who was an in law to the Robinson family of Virginia.

Also of interest are the children of James Walker, Anne Taliaferro (Italian for Smith), and Ann Bohannon (The Good Name).

Their grandfather is Christopher Robinson who is also my ancestor.

There is also Adam Walker ( who was married to Mary Polly Doak, who was the aunt of A.J. Doak. He was from Ireland but was also in Virginia. Possibly somehow related to James Walker? They were both Walkers in Virginia anyways.
