Father's Family

Somers, Ct. and Portsmouth, RI. have several generations of ancestors including intermarriage between third cousins.

I have been doing genealogy since the 1990s. I started when I found books my father had on two of his family lines. I found out that all four of his grandparents had published lines. A lot of research was in libraries and at the Family History Center nearby, ordering microfiche. I travelled to the towns where his ancestors spent several generations and visited some of the cemeteries.

My father's family is all New England, except for one line that made it out to Ohio. A lot of the work on genealogy had been done in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Many of the ancestral lines go back to the Great Migration. When I got online I found that if someone has been doing extensive New England work we can usually find a common ancestor or two ten generations back.

Mother's Family

I have only done limited work on my mother's lines, marriage and death certificates, cemetery. Her parents came over from the Ukraine around 1910 and married here in Rochester, NY. I don't speak or read Ukrainian or any other language any information would be in. So far I have found one possible cousin, with a shared surname of my great grandparents. My tree does not go back far enough for matching. My great grandparents did not come over and I only know their names from the marriage certificate.


  • Entered by Mary Hall at registration.
  • I have birth certificate, marriage certificate, passport, Social Security card,...
  • I have a letter from my grandfather to my father listing the Hall line all the way back to the 1600s in two lines. It didn't have the third line I found later.
  • Paternal relationship is confirmed with an AncestryDNA test match (cousins not on Wikitree yet)

AncestryDNA: 722 centimorgans shared across 34 DNA segments Predicted relationship: 1st Cousins AncestryDNA: 380 centimorgans shared across 17 DNA segments Predicted relationship: 2nd Cousins

  • then there is memory, which is sometimes right. I noticed that sometimes as my mother got older her stories got confused. My father wouldn't correct her but you could see it on his face.

HI Sue, thanks for the thanks of Pearce Coggeshall. I was completing a line to Wilbur Coggeshall and his wife. Both are Coggeshall descendants and were tenant farmers here in Bristol, RI. They have a farm musuem named in their honor.

so strange that Matthew Brayton (b. 1759) got removed from his parents! Thanks for adding him back. Unfortunately, a lot of the information I had entered has now disappeared - not by your actions, I'm sure. I'll have to piece it all back together. This past summer I completed a bio of him with tons of information and feel sure I had put it in his wiki profile ... oh well...

Hi Sue,

I love the background picture on your page! I'm a fellow Cemeterist.

Thanks for joining the Forget-Me-Not Team! We were the winning team last year, and I hope we can reprise that success.

Looking at the badges you've already accumulated, I'm sure our team will do well. In any case, I know WikiTree will do well!

Good luck this weekend!
