Wikitree Guidelines For Notables

Project: Notables Wikipedia: Having a Wikipedia entry automatically qualifies somebody as being Notable, although lacking a Wikipedia entry does not automatically mean that they are not notable, as they may still be listed in some other resource. In particular, Wikimedia Commons is a good source for public domain photos of notables.

If the person has a Wikipedia entry: Add "See also:" under the Sources section, and then add "* Wikipedia:


From G2G What is a Notable?

Notables are considered to have a public profile - in other words, what they do or did to achieve fame is reasonably known to a larger audience and within the public knowledge. Wikipedia utilizes these guidelines for determining whether or not someone should be considered for a page on their site, and is the same standard that we use at WikiTree to determine if someone meets the criteria for notability.

I've often been asked why Wikipedia? The reasoning is that they have an established standard and an established process for determining whether or not a profile would meet certain standards, and it's intended to be a objective measurement to determine if they do or do not meet the established criteria.

"You are welcome to add your relationship to Daniel Boone and other notables to your own profile." PaulaJ, 10 Nov 2019. [Boone-34].

"Footnotes [1] Before telling the Jordan story, we should say something about the pronunciation of the surname. Jordan in many cases was and is spoken as to rhyme with burden. Reports tell of many Jordan families in Virginia and elsewhere today who use this traditional pronunciation: Jurden. And they are among the descendants of Samuel Jordan.

When you get your DNA results, be sure to register with GEDmatch [I don't remember how to do that]. Ancestry creates a THUR LINES [under DNA] which is at times very inaccurate. GEDmatch doesn't lie; however, when you compare matches [thru Wikitree], do a comparison for all matches. GEDmatch only goes back 5 generations; therefore, some of the available comparisons may be too weak to show up and some will show a match.

The Town of Madison Heights

"The twentieth century also saw the strengthening of local administration in the form of town governments. Antebellum acts of incorporation had vested authority in town trustees, but the old system was not sufficient for the more complex demands of the twentieth century and subsequently the county's larger communities sought mayoral government. The first was Madison Heights in 1904, which was empowered to elect a mayor and six councilmen." page 45.

Henry de Bohun was one of the twenty-five medieval barons who were surety for Magna Carta in 1215. Henry died in June 1220 while on crusade to the Holy Land.

He was the son and heir of Humphrey III de Bohun (pre-1144-1181) of Trowbridge Castle in Wiltshire and of Caldicot Castle in south-east Wales, 5th feudal baron of Trowbridge,[1] who served King Henry II as Lord High Constable of England.

Riding in the vanguard of heavy cavalry, de Bohun caught sight of the Scottish king who was mounted on a small palfrey (horse) armed only with a battle-axe. De Bohun lowered his lance and charged, but Bruce stood his ground. At the last moment Bruce manoeuvred his mount nimbly to one side, stood up in his stirrups and hit de Bohun so hard with his axe that he split his helmet and head in two. Despite the great risk the King had taken, he merely expressed regret that he had broken the shaft of his favourite axe.

Hyman Rickover Fired - The Indignity of Forced Retirement

United States Navy Admiral Hyman George Rickover .

Hyman Rickover-1

Secretary of the US Navy John Lehman stated in his book, Command of the Seas:

"One of my first orders of business as Secretary of the Navy would be to solve ... the Rickover problem." Secretary Lehman eventually attained enough political clout to enforce his decision to retire Rickover.

"On January 31, 1982, four days after his 82nd birthday, Rickover was forced to retire from the Navy after 63 years of service under 13 presidents (Woodrow Wilson through Ronald Reagan). According to Rickover, he first learned of his firing when his wife told him what she heard on the radio."

According to former President Jimmy Carter, several weeks following Rickover's retirement, Rickover was invited to the Oval Office and decided to don his full dress uniform. Rickover told President Carter that he [Rickover] refused to take a seat, listened to the president [Reagan] ask him [Rickover] to be his special nuclear advisor. Rickover replied 'Mr. President, that is bullshit,' and then walked out.

President Carter later said that, next to his parents, Rickover was the greatest influence on his life.

In subsequent national media interviews, Rickover was quick to state that he had been forced out of the Navy.

Note: USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23) is the third and final Seawolf-class, nuclear-powered, fast-attack submarine in the United States Navy. She is named for 39th President of the United States Jimmy Carter, the only president to have qualified in submarines.

Find a Grave Memorial Biography Bio by: Lori Richards


Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, Inspiration to All Pioneers and Inventors

Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit serves as an inspiration for pioneers, inventors, and all who work in the creative fields. He invented the mercury-in-glass thermometer and the Fahrenheit temperature scale. At the age of 28, Fahrenheit became the first person to make a pair of thermometers that could give identical, repeatable, and objective temperature readings.

Fahrenheit became so fascinated by the devices that he abandoned his apprenticeship, withdrew his inheritance, and ran away to study thermometer making. His hometown, angered at his defection from his government-appointed apprenticeship, placed a warrant for his arrest. He spent many years on the run from the authorities, learning more about glassblowing, physics, and chemistry along the way. When he died at age 50, he received the fourth-class funeral of one who is classified as destitute, in the Kloosterkerk in The Hague (the Cloister or Monastery Church).

AN OLD LANDMARK PASSES INTO OBSCURITY (from a National Historical Magazine)

For nearly two hundred years the old home of the Seay family has stood in Fork Union, Virginia, and just recently has been razed to the ground. Due to boundary demarcations, it was first in Goochland County, then in Albemarle County, and lastly in Fluvanna County. Abraham Seay (or Say), one of the first of several brothers to migrate to this county, was granted a tract comprising nearly four hundred acres, from King George II in 1745. A portion of the Fluvanna Tract remained in the Seay family until 1935, when the next to the last surviving member, Mrs. Victoria Seay White, passed away, at which time the Fork Union Military Academy acquired title thereto.

The old house at Fork union, typical of early design, had gable roof and wide hall, which never had doors during the earlier years, reflecting the hospitality of its owner – always open to guests. There were broad open fireplaces throughout the house. Meals were prepared in the log kitchen in the yard; pungent aromas arose from the savory dishes prepared by the family slaves and “toted” across the cobblestone walk to the basement, where they were served from an open fireplace with reflectors for retaining the hear. And the sturdy proverbial pot-hook swung gracefully to the side. Windows, doors and moldings were made by hand, as were the locks, screws and nails, many held together with wooden dowels. High mantles in the living room and bedrooms lent an air of charm and beauty to the once candlelit fireside. A unique fixture in the ceiling of a bedroom of the old home was a strap, suspended from an iron ring to allow one to turn in bed without assistance. This was installed for Grandfather Bowles, who spent his later years with his daughter.

Many rare pieces of china, crystal, brass and furniture are still in possession of the family, including the piano-forte, quaint and small, of red mahogany. One of the first in the vicinity, it was purchased to persuade a beautiful young daughter from marrying, but she eloped shortly after, was later forgiven and received the family blessing. A rare old chest belonging to the mother of Mrs. Benjamin Bowles (whose daughter married Austin Seay) was brought over from Europe and was said to have held the family treasures.

Private tutors were employed in the family, and many day students of prominent families recalled happy school days in the old home, known as “Dipperville”, a name acquired through he many business interests of the owner, who was affectionately dubbed “Austin Dipper”.

In addition to farm land, there was a tannery, a blacksmith and wheelwright shop, general merchandise store (including post office) and a grist mill. The gristmill was operated by waterpower from a large pond of water, affording boating, bathing and fishing. Fork Union Baptist Church used it for baptism before a pool was installed in the church. A spring in the midst of a lovely oak grove on the lower hill (north side) was walled by stone masonry in the shape of a boot; this work was done by the slaves.

Some legends are told of visitors, one of which weaves itself around General Robert E. Lee. Another relates to an escaped spy or prisoner, who sought shelter here during the war of 1861-1865, and was never suspected; later he confesses on his deathbed.

There is also to be recalled the beautiful temperance banner (now in possession of a descendant), embellished in blue and gold, emblem of the “Sons of Temperance”, the then leading “dry” organization of the community. A few years ago the Temperance Temple at Bremo, near Fork Union, built in 1831, was opened to the public.

The oldest family burial ground is on the place, where Austin Seay, Senior (Sergeant in the Revolutionary War), and his wife are buried.

Another lot adjoins Fork Union Baptist Church, which is also part of the tract deeded in 1824 by Joseph W. Seay and his wife Lucy, naming John H. Cocke, Thomas Omohundra and John Winn as trustees. The Episcopal relatives of General Cocke, of Bremo, attended worship there when four denominations held interest in it.

Also nearby is the family burial ground of Thomas Edward Seay, where a tavern “Three Chimneys” (to some known as “Old Chimneys”, also “Burnt Chimneys” stood. The name (Burn Chimneys) has been more definitely established. Stone first being used; burned bricks replacing stone. Remnants of the original roadbed of the Richmond-Charlottesville state-coach route, which led through, are still in evidence. An iron railing enclosed this quarter of an acre lot, entirely covered with cement, assuring perpetual care, and a bronze plate embedded in a huge granite stone bears the names of the family and connections.

Careby Hall, home of the late Reverend William E. Hatcher, founder of the Fork Union Military Academy, stands on the Tan Yard Hill, the rear of which overlooks Judy Creek, which supplied water for the old tan yard and in later years for the village of Fork Union.

The Bowles and Seays families have revered this spot jointly, old and young returning from distant states, each coming to visit the old plantation as a pilgrimage to honor their ancestral lineage.

In passing, one cannot but pause with a sign of regret that this old interesting landmark should be erased without mention. The early settlers sacrificed and labored to establish their homes. Granted there lands, each guarded his home as a castle and shrine dedicated to the life, liberty and happiness of a new civilization. A memorial on this spot would pay homage to the patriots who contributed to the establishing of a new world of freedom for future generations.

John C. Bogle, The Public Indignation of Forced Retirement

John Clifton "Jack" Bogle, founder of Vanguard International, and inventor of the S&P 500 Index Fund.

A month after mutual fund giant Vanguard Group said it would enforce its mandatory retirement policy on founder and Senior Chairman John C. Bogle Sr.--and after Bogle vowed he wasn’t about to resign--both have had a change of heart.

The 70-year-old Bogle, a legendary figure in the fund industry and the father of low-cost index mutual funds, agreed Friday to step down from Vanguard’s board, ending a public relations nightmare for the Valley Forge, Pa.-based company.

But that was only after the board agreed to waive its rule for him, he said. “Things can be done with a decent enough level of grace when you put your mind to it,” Bogle said in an interview Friday. “I was concerned from the outset that they weren’t waiving the [mandatory retirement] policy for the founder. I said this should have been my decision to make.”

NOTES on Col. John Jordan1777–1854

Colonel JOHN JORDAN 1777–1854 has caught my eye this morning for the following reasons:

1. Location: Rockbridge Co. adjoins Amherst Co. and today's Nelson Co. This puts Colonel JOHN JORDAN right next door.

2. Canal building was one of the chief occupations of Jordan in his later years. He built the Bateau Canal at Balcony Falls, and the Lexington Canal, which connected with the James River at Lynchburg. This major undertaking was completed in 1852. Note: Cousin Connie told me that our great grandfather was a ferryman on the James River.

3. Note: Colonel JOHN JORDAN 1777–1854 had a grandson named Captain Charles H.

4. Colonel JOHN JORDAN 1777–1854 had 14 children. Many of whom fought in Wars. This might explain why we are looking for John Jordan married to Elmira, and our great grandfather born in Sumter South Carolina.

5. My grandfather, Hubert Herbert Lacy Jordan, worked as a "Helper" in a machine shop at 14 years old, and is listed as working in a Machine Shop at age 17. Hubert Herbert Lacy Jordan retired as a Machinist from the Norfolk Naval Shipyard where he started working during WWII. Thus, my grandfather was in the metal working trade as a young boy.

Research Information:

Colonel JOHN JORDAN 1777–1854, VIRGINIA BUILDER

In the spring of 1802 there moved to the thriving frontier community of Lexington, Virginia a young man named John Jordan (1777–1854).

http://leefamilyarchive.org/reference/essays/jordan/index.html

Canal building was one of the chief occupations of Jordan in his later years. He built the Bateau Canal at Balcony Falls, and the Lexington Canal, which connected with the James River at Lynchburg. This major undertaking was completed in 1852,

The Colonel died July 25, 1854, and is buried in the Presbyterian Cemetery in Lexington. His will is on file in the county courthouse, and it reveals that his estate was valued at approximately $15,000: a considerable sum for his day. Most of Colonel Jordan's fourteen children migrated from Rockbridge County, but Samuel stayed on to direct the iron business, and John W. to found Rockbridge Baths, a dozen miles from Lexington.

==

Besides his activities in the church, building buildings, and contracting, he also was involved in the iron industry in six counties: Rockbridge, Bath, Amherst, Louisa, Allegheny, and Botetourt. John Jordan, throughout his life, owned and operated ten furnaces:

If someone typified the hard-working Scotch-Irish personality, it was John Jordan.

==========

A number of the present generation is serving in the war now closing. Colonel Jordan was himself a lieutenant in 1812, and twenty silver dollars were used as mountings on his sword. Several of his grandsons were in the war of 1861 and Captain Charles H., son of Samuel F., was severely wounded at Fisher's Hill.

Notes on Spelling of Last Names

In literature, there are the sisters Emily Bronte and Charlotte Bronte.

Their father Patrick Bronte was a hell-fire minister. Patrick Bronte came down so hard on them, that members of the congregation were known to have jumped out of the church windows during Sunday morning church service.

Patrick Bronte was known to have signed his last name six different ways. Back then, you spelled your last name the way you wanted people to pronounce it.

Thank you so much, Richard, for the additional information on Admiral Rickover's history of seems like singlehandedly building the Nuclear Naval Submarine program for our nation. VERY much appreciated your message and additional links and data on the Daniel Boone profile which I added your source to Boone's biography. You are correct, I tried to get an online copy of Rickover's book/pages on Boone and only found reference to it. SO VERY SAD what happened to the Admiral after DECADES OF SERVICE to our nation in his firing. I worked so hard on the Boone profile and the more I read on his famous life, the more I believed I could not adequately provide a full history of the famous frontiersman. I think I have about 300 sources I collected in this venture. BTW, I like very much your history on YOUR profile page!

Welcome

I am pleased to confirm and welcome you to the WikiTree family, your contributions will go a long way to joining the world together.

I would suggest starting with the New Member How-To pages, they will save you a lot of time and frustration.

I am here to answer any question you have, no matter how trivial you may think it is. There is no such thing as a silly question. Please add as much information as you can, it all helps to turn a “name” back into a person. I hope you enjoy the site

Happy tree climbing
