Anonymous was born near the military base at Ft. Hood, Texas during the Vietnam Nam conflict. He counts himself among the very last of the boomer generation, although boomers are a wide swath of people.
After a couple of years, the family moved to Greene County, Illinois where most of his father’s family and some of his mother’s family were living at that time. First, they lived in greenfield. next, they lived on the outskirts of Carrollton, IL. Then they lived on the Iver’s farm which was close to Woodville and Eldred.
Anonymous ‘s parents divorced about 1976, and he moved to South Carolina where he lived for his junior high and high school years. He also lived in Florida, and later move back to Illinois, then Massachusetts.



  • Anon (Helderman) Crewe and half sibling C.R.G. shared DNA 1904 cm across 63 segments have been tested by Ancestry autosomal DNA and were matched to mom, Claudia Williams. Triangulation relationships among confirmed cousins created DNA circles for Alexander Archibald Shaw and his wife Epsie Pearl Proctor, and Daniel Alexander Shaw which also match to both C.R.G. and Anon (Helderman) Crewe. First half cousin K.S.L., 299 cm across 17 segments, matches on matrilineal side, however they have a tree which wasn’t connected and never generated the internal dna circles that would have appeared if their tree were linked, or if they had submitted a gedmatch for report and ID. They shared personal matches, and they matched with relatives in the matrilineal Wallace, Swan, Shaw line. The male line on that side remains a mystery for all of us.
  • DNA Circles on maternal side including multiple familial matches include:


Helderman DNA from our common ancestor of Johan Jacob Helderman (from Lincoln, NC to Monroe City, Knox, IN.) There seems to have a very strong correlation to a long span of segmrnts on the 18th chromosome between 13562354 - 65361691 and 65367619 - 68681691. 18th is not the only one that shows up, but it is consistently the longest one.

An anonymous second cousin, (399 cm, 22 segments) created a triangulation match to Lora Mae (Wood) Gillingham and [[Gillingham-791| John Calvin Gillingham. Resulting DNA circles or mutual matches based on John Calvin Gillingham family group includes Willlis Maron Gillingham, Hiram Silkwood Tatman, Mary Ann Silkwood, James Gillingham, Elizabeth Belle Tatman, Minerva Ann Rowe, Mary Catherine Ford, William F McClenning, and Thomas Simpson Tatman. These multiple matches confirm the Gillingham line back to James Gillingham, Connecticut.


Anonymous has a B.A. in Linguistics. His interest was mostly foreign language, phonology and intercultural communication, but he also took classes in public relations.


In early adulthood he worked as an ESL tutor and then as a fraud analyst for a major bank protecting customers against credit card fraud. He’d love to find some work in probate looking for heirs or in forensic genealogy for police detectives. He has a lot of transferable skills from years in risk doing Lexus nexus searches and sleuthing elusive credit card fraud perpetrators.
Later in life he moved to the New England area, where he currently lives as an artist with his significant other and two furry dog children. He works mostly in acrylic and charcoal, but sometimes also mixed media. So his alternate career is combining art and genealogy. He is an analytical and creative mind, full of curiosity.

Digital Will

To Whom it May Concern, Since I have had major surgery for a heart issue and ongoing health concerns, I give ownership of my research to wikitree in the event of my demise. Wikitree members are welcome to use the digital images of my art with attribution to Helderman-102, at any time, or my actual name in the case of my demise. I hope to contribute much more before that happens for my own personal legacy to future genealogists of my family or descendants.


He has been able to get a lot further by not limiting himself to one platform of research. Different websites have different strategic advantages. He is also available for artistic commissions or distance reiki.

Our DNA may not match as easily because 6 generations back may only match my dad or one of his brothers, i'm trying to see if i can get dad to get a test done, AND one of my cousins. It'd be really cool to get a cousin or two done as well as dad, unlike my mom's side where there's a good chunk of family to compare with.

I do like "Concord Memorial to Slain of King Phillip’s War". I go to Wayland fairly often (or close..Hanscom AFB) but have never seen this memorial and I know where this golf course is. I'm not planning a trip there in the next week or so, and maybe springtime would be best. A new name would be great. We're about to change the name of a cause of death category which currently is "Killed by Indians." Why not change this name? Find a Grave isn't always accurate. Thanks!

Concord Men Slain by Indians is a real memorial near the actual burial site. It's staying as a category. Perhaps we could rename it though.

Thanks, Natalie

This is a courtesy e-mail to see how things are going. Are you enjoying WikiTree so far?

Have the tips in the New Member How-Tos been helpful? Most of us still have some questions after reviewing them.

Thanks for adopting the Orphaned Profiles. This After Adopting Orphans FAQ explains the special attention those profiles need. Let me know if you have questions on how to find and record sources, merge duplicates, clean up gedcom biographies, or interpret the Suggestions report.

Love that idea. It would be good for you to do to learn some more about wikitree. Let me know if I can help.

Here is the start of a freespace page on the family. We can use it in your project once you get that set-up.

Cuz - I could use your help with the DNA. Not my strong suit. I have done Ancestry DNA for me, my mom and my brother. I had Mom and me on GEDMatch but got a little worried about privacy and deleted them from that site. They are still on though. I might add them to GEDMatch again. Thinking about it.  :)
